I know no one wants to give too much away.... I have been fishing Erie exclusively the last few years but circumstances (weather, 8 month pregnant wife, fuel prices) have kept me from getting out much this year. I have been kicking around trying trolling at Milton, or the other local lakes, but I have a feeling my equipment and program is not appropriate there. I do pretty well on the big pond with spoons, dipseys, etc. but am used to fishing 70' of water. My wife loves to fish with me, but in her current condition, Erie gets a little too rough. Any tips, equipment, locations, etc. would be greatly appreciated. If you dont want to post up here, send me a PM. The wife and I are tired of sitting in the house wishing we were fishing, when a year ago we would be out there in the iffy conditions. And here is the carrot I am dangling....If someone would like to help out, we could go in my boat. (Actually, its my wife's boat) She has a 19' Tracker Targa with a 9.9 kicker with digital trollmaster and steering linkage. I have Navionics and GPS and all the rod holders you could possibly want. I also have a bimini and a pretty good sense of humor. Also, with the wife less able to fish Erie, and my primary fishing partner, I am looking for a few new friends for Erie fishing, Mostly out of Cleveland or Vermillion. Thats all the bribes I have for now. Thanks in advance.
