Captain John Griszczak MCBA Secretary, from Stray Cat Charters reports from Lake Erie.
Walleye fishing has been on the slow side near Bolles Harbor and the Brest Bay area. The surface water temperature is still on the cool side around 58 degrees. The walleye are a little sluggish, so if your trolling, troll around 1.5 to 1.8 mph. We used Deep Thunder Stick Jr. but the fish never really picked out a color. The area between the 3 stacks and Turtle Island produced some very nice eye’s a couple of days ago in 13 to 16 feet of water. Lots of White Bass just off the dumping grounds in the flats so unless your targeting them avoid those areas. The Ohio dump produced good numbers of walleyes to. Long slow trolling with Thunder Sticks 60 to 70 feet back seemed to be the ticket. Best colors, Superman, Brown Trout, and Fire Tiger.
