It is! I went out over a dozen times last season and limited out every trip, usually in 2 hours.  PM me if you want details.

KraTTor, no details needed, thanks though for the offer. That's how it was years ago here, it did take a bit more than a couple of hours at times.

If I went home after 2-3 hours of fishing I wouldn't bother going.

Fishing is a all day thing.

I think I'd have to do  the catch and release thing.👍😁

I must be feeling my age then..lol.  Started the season in Leamington (5 hr drive round trip), plus launch/load and cleaning 12 fish...  With 2 to 3 hours of pulling in wally's on 8/10 colour leadcore I was done..

Lets face it, this is not fun fishing, pulling in these things is like dragging an old boot.  But they are damn tasty and worth every bit of effort 😄

Things must have changed over the years with the cleaner water? We just dragged a wiggle wart, hot n tot, or bandit 200 on 8 - 10 # mono.

There's so many Walleye out there now you don't have to troll Just drift or jig for them with a spinning rod, so much more fun and you get your limit. May take you a little longer. Had a buddy out last year that hates trolling, I had to laugh he was using his 13' noodle rod spinning reel drifting, his rod was bent right over almost double, Walleye on, fought it to the boat, was only 2 Lbs.😂 He had a blast.

Fish, you really didn't have to troll years ago either, drift and cast an erie dearie or silver nuggets tip with a worm. I caught them casting lipless crankbaits and blade baits and others.

Never a big fan of fishing on erie, it was almost always the closest water around with a high success rate.

So, no one has a photo of anyone not following social distancing in the water so they use a file photo ,which means an old photo

In this Plain Dealer file photo
