Lake Erie Fishing Report 20 OCT 2014

Walleye

Walleye have been around in the western basin for a while now, however boaters are not able to get out very often due to the fall weather.  Strong winds and rain have kept most walleye guys off the lake.  The occasional good weather days have been around though.  Trollers are taking walleye around the huron dump, all around kelleys island, and green island trolling husky jerks.  With the water c0oling down anglers are slowing their speeds hence the husky jerks.  Most of the walleye are out deep during the day and in close at night.  Out in deeper water anglers are adding snap weights to their crank baits to get them down as the walleye are still hanging around the 20 foot down mark in about 40 FOW.

Perch

Fall perch have put the feed bag on in the western basin.  Many limits are being reported when the wind calms down enough for people to get out.  Anywhere are the 30 FOW mark in between the islands has been working the best.

Steelhead

Steelhead have been caught in the rivers and at the mouths.  In the rivers right now they are hitting on minnows and egg sacs.  It is a good idea to keep one female at the beginning of the season so you get some eggs to use for future trips.  Trollers are doing really well at the Vermilion river and Rocky River.  Trolling little cleo’s has been the best, with junior thunder sticks being a close second.
