This will keep some boats in the water late this year!

Recommended Posts

I don't know much about them myself grim, but it looks like a good boat for walleye fishing here on Lake Erie. They get some real pigs on Erie here this time of year, it will be interesting to see how big of a fish wins it?

Looks like a great boat to me.  I'm sure there will be some real local ringers entered in that Derby! I hope it goes well for them weather wise.

Growing up , the world record was listed as a 22 1/2  pound fish from the mouth of the Niagara on Erie , fishing is better now than then but 14 is about as big as I have heard in the last 20 years.  If I was getting a walleye boat for Erie it would be a 20-22 foot walkaround cuddy.

" Anyone can participate from novice to professional angler and have a great time with a chance to fill the top 5 payout spots! "

No need for ringers, it's a wide open event, and I am guessing some charter  captains that spend a lot more time on Lake Erie may have an edge?

Many years ago I went out with my dad and my brother for walleye one day, off in the distance I could see something that looked like an island, so I asked my brother what island was that? In  a place I knew didn't have any, no island, boats, it was a circus, people casting, people trolling and seemingly not enough sense to stay out of each others way. Luck will still be a factor! Ya, weather will be a factor, Erie can get dicey quick, and this time of year it's no joke.

That is the record I remember Dave, not from Erie, but a big fish!

The bank brigade is still in the lead with an 8.45 fish, and with the storms this weekend it wasn't a boating weekend! Still like 40k people without power in our area, high wind took down a lot of trees and power lines.

Just guessing that a rattle trap is still a go to bait for the fall walleye bite from shore.

man, am i the only one that thinks they ruined a really nice boat with that ugly green evinrude and crappy stickers?

If you are going to slap 100 decals on a boat, at least make them match the colour scheme.

LOL, but the price is right? 1 walleye? It just has to be the biggest one? They updated the prize list, some serious cash for  2 - 5, and even 1st in the kids division gets a boat.

$100,000 boat with a bunch of crappy miscoloured stickers and some random green accents...

I bet the $20,000 looks better lol

i mean at the end of the day, what do you expect from a walleye guys on lake erie, they arent neccesarily graphic designers or guys with a great taste for looks...but thats an expensive as hell boat that look damn good on their own. Look at the one they have on the warrior website...looks like a war machine with nice styling.

LOL, ya Akri, the one on their website does look a lot better, even with a Yamaha on it. If I was spending my money on a boat I wouldn't want it decal-ed up like a clown car. Now if someone wanted to give me one for a 30 buck investment? I could probably live with it. 

I remember some years ago guys from the board used to have a meet and greet fishing expedition at the Bay of Quinte and catch some hog walleye. You would think a tournament like this one might be popular in that area?

4k entries, and the entry fee is basically chump change? If you wanted to increase tourism and extend area resorts business season? A lot of people might be interested?

I don't know.  I find the fall walleye fishing on Quinte very hard, so I wouldn`t stand a chance.  I went to one of those meet and greets once and there was a total of two walleye caught and by the same angler. LOL

jimmer, no idea how the walleye fishing works on Lake Ontario or even on the north side of Lake Erie, so it might not be a workable plan?

One of my brothers was much more informed and equipped for walleye fishing on Erie here, but the fall spots don't seem to have changed much over the years here since the rebirth of walleye fishing here.

A fall frenzy for walleye on the north side of Erie?

I think the term you're looking for is 'butterface'.

Ohio Boating Laws & Regulations | Boat Ed®

Your boating laws aren't much different than ours, which may be the reason for the 40hp motor?

I  was tooling around in a small boat with a much smaller motor though when I was young, gives a kid a chance to gloat? dad's car, my boat?

Now those weights are starting to get serious! Looking at the weights and lengths is interesting, some fat fish? Those big ones don't seem to have much trouble finding food?

    • Water cooling down on Pigeon.

      Surface temp this morning 69. This evening 72. Fishing was tough today. Had a young loon hang out next to the boat for about 5 min. Checked me out. Swam under and checked again. No fear. Didn’t reach for phone/camera in case he spooked. Great experience.

    • Found Some

      A few years ago a friend gave me a few of these Matrix spoons. I finally took them out and gave them a washing behind the boat this summer. I only had one of the large 5"+ ones and caught a ton of trout on it before I lost it due to operator error. 😥 I looked for replacements but was having a hard time locating them as they seem to be discontinued now. I did manage to locate them and placed an order with SAIL.ca  Just checked and there are none of the colours I bought left.  Good thing I

    • pier fishing for salmon with high water levels

      Hi, last time i was at Bronte pier, the pier was closed off and gated. big sign saying 'structure unsafe keep off' not sure if thats due to rehab on the pier or just the high water.  yesterday the waves were coming over top of the liftbridge on the hamilton side, i assume that is closed as well. Where can we chuck spoons this year??

    • trolling Lake O. having some line issues

      Last trip out, trolling in 1-130 feet, one of our lines (braided line on downrigger) was accumulating this gooey type of yellow stinky stuff. it was very tough to get off and it was mostly in the top 20 feet of line. I'm glad we didn't hook into a fish on that line because there was no way I could have reeled it in.  Never happened before in the last dozen or so trips.  Wondering if the water was just very dirty that day, or I should switch the type of line. had 2 other lines out, one with
