 Oct 22 2016 Lake Erie Fishing Report Port Clinton, OH


Walleye have moved back into the western basin in large numbers. Kelly's Schoal, Gull, King George, Buckeye, Mouse Island Reef, West Reef are all producing walleye casting spinners in the shallows. West of the Islands Niagara, Toussiant, Round , Crib , Locust Point, The Tit and the Gravel Pits out NW of West sister are producing walleye also casting spinners. The nite bite is under way casting from the piers and on the reefs. Trolling catches have been reported Between Round and Toussaint Reef in 24 feet.


Yellow Perch fishing is out standing best in 20 years or more. Nice size and limit catches are the normal. We will be fishing until November.

We are now booking 2017 starting in April

 Lake Erie walleye fishing charters Port Clinton Sept 16 2016Lake Erie walleye fishing charters Port Clinton Sept 16 2016Walleye are firing up with some limits being taken casting weapons, Parish Peas and Tiny Teasers on shallow structure. Nice mix of walleye ranging from 16 to 24 inches with a occasional big head. Best depths are from 4 to 16 feet. Shallow water structure fishing around the Islands, Gull, Kelly's Shoal is producing new walleye that are migrating to the western basin staging for winter. By new walleye I mean walleye that have just shown up recently. They are not native reef walleye that have the dark look and have been residents on the rocks. To me this is the signal we have been waiting for the fall walleye bite is on and with the numbers of legal size walleye in the lake I am expecting a exceptionally good fall walleye run as always weather cooperating of coarse.


 Sept 17 Small mouth Bass Fishing Report

 Small mouth Bass are beginning to get active in Lake Erie's western basin. We are catching some how ever the bite is far from stellar. Twenty bass is a good day right now. Not what we call a good day, turning a 100 with a crew of six fisherman is a good day. Too much fishing pressure because the walleye fishing was not producing enough keepers and clear water are most likely the culprits. We have seen it in the past lack of algae super clear water the bass simply leave to where home is more comfortable. The bass fishing will recover but they take longer to come back. I hope i am wrong but I expect it will be next year. When water conditions are right they slowly collect to good numbers on the reefs and bass fishing is good. How ever that has not been the case this year.

 Perch Fishing Report Sept 17

 Perch fishing remains very good - out standing - Best in 15 years on the Western Basin of Lake Erie. Taco Bell - D Can - Niagara - East of the Perrys Monument - Lucy's Point and around Kelly's. The weather buoy by the shipping channel, The Gravel Pits North of West Sister.  Perch fishing action pretty much over all remains excellent. When you get them started keep the bait in the water - get your hook baited and back to the bottom ASAP - it chums the surrounding water starting a feeding frenzy under your boat and catching is as fast as you hit the bottom and you limit out fast.
