Way out on lake erie

Recommended Posts

Yesterday Lefty, Fishlips and I hit Lake Erie for a little perch fishing. The ride out was rough to say the least. Took 45 min to get to our first spot. We dropped our buckshots tipped with minnows we were onto fish. Deadsticking worked as well wit standout hooks .

Spent the entire day out there. It was so beautiful we were sitting there in our sweat shirts. Came back with 60 perch all a good size.

Fished 47 feet of water in the morning and the fishing was slow, we moved out to deeper water later in the day 54feet and we were marking non stop all day. It was hard to get the fish to bite.

A few smelt around and the fish were hitting really light.

Never measured any fish but a few were into the 13 to 15 "range..and just got finished eating them YUMMY ...ice is 6 to 12" and 3 to 4 ft thick in 90% of the area we were in its all shove ice that washes to the East end of Lake Erie pretty much every year ..Me & Fishlips spend alote of time on the ice during the winter months and don't fear to much ..guess once you have went through the ice a few times the fear kinda leaves your soul ...
