Off to Rondeau bay next weekend

Recommended Posts

I'm going to Rondeau Bay provincial park next weekend. I have very little knowledge of the area. I do know that Bass won't be open yet.

 

What can I look forward to? Is there Pike or walleye in the bay itself?

 

How far out into Lake Erie proper would I have to go to get into some walleye or anything else?

 

I have yet to actually catch a walleye so, any info or tips would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Mark

Pike, Perch, Bass are in the bay.... the perch are tough to come by sometimes but the pike are pretty well everywhere. Bass well, you already know the story with them... to bad you weren't coming a few weeks later because the Bass fishing is GREAT !

 

I found weed lines with spinnerbaits work good for pike !

If you are looking for some Perch, take the 15 minute drive around Rondeau bay to the small town of Erieau. It is just around the other side of the bay from Rondeau PP. There is a pier there that you can walk out on and fish. The morning and evening bite for perch of the pier at this time of the year should be good. You can also expect some sheephead and maybe cats. Shiners on a Pickerel rig will do you well.

 

There are not usually any Walleye in the bay itself, it's more of a Bass/panfish area.

 

Good luck

 

Cheers

Good news about the pike. Shame about the timing for Bass.

I'll have to give that a try. Them Perch is tasty!

 

Thanks for the replys,

Decent pike, perch and crappie fishing. You'll have a good time. You'll wish you went after bass opener though.

    • Long-weekend on the Massassaga PP _ Moon River

      Fished the Moon on Sunday. Water was highest I've seen in years so extra caution was taken boating around.  Deer flies were out in force, little buggers had an ankle feast.  The fishing was on-fire: between me and my gal we caught about 30 smallmouth between 2-4lbs all through the day, average was around 3lbs albeit no nickles on this trip.  Drop-shotting flukes and slammers was the ticket.  Sometimes you would be reeling one in and there would be one or two smallies following with your hooked u

    • Nipissing West Bay weekend

      Hey guys! Had a great weekend of fishing and camping with my son this past weekend.  We camped on an island and fished , and fished...😁. Bite was hot, we caught some good numbers of pike...not big ones but really feisty ones. Got in to some bass, but none was pic worthy. Perch was on, all weekend,  we got a few jumbos while we trolled for walleye.  Speaking about walleye...we caught good numbers of those, most of them in between 10 -16 inches. We got keepers also, 2 nice walleye, 19 and 22

      Not fishing but catching this weekend water temps were 57 to 60. Most pickerel caught in 6 to 8 feet of water with this biggun on a spinnerbait crashing the windblown shoreline.
