Fished with Capt. Steve of Hawg'n Charters 8/22-23-24 and took home, to Wisconsin, a five person limit of 450 perch. The fist day we had to work for them but still managed a five man limit. The second day started out slow but the afternoon bite was fantastic. The third day dropped the anchor once in the morning and had a 5 man limit of nice perch in three hours. We used a 2 hook spreader system with minnows in about 30 ft. of water. You're probably saying this guy sounds like a meat hunter. I'm not saying that bring home 450 perch wasn't one of the reasons we came, but catching the perch, learning new techniques and making new friends, also were very important. The 30' boat that we fished out of, took the rough water real well and was set up with plenty of room to fish. All in all, it was a great trip and we'll be back next year in the later part of September or the beginning of October for a combo perch a walleye bite Also very important was, Steve was very accommodating.  Two day before we were scheduled to arrive, I looked at the weather forecast and saw that the first day of our scheduled trip was going to be windy and stormy. I called Steve and ask him if we could adjust the our trip, and he said no problem and we moved it ahead one day. You will enjoy yourself if you decide to fish with Hawg'n Charter out of Port Clinton.

This is not a post.  I live in Sheboygan Wi.  I have fished Lake Michigan for over thirty years.  I have a fiberglass boat that I can troll twenty lines off the back, and all the equipment.  I am looking for either a private boat or charter that would want to come fishing with me, and in return take myself and one other out on Lake Erie.  Would be happy to share gas, bait, and whatever.  I just don't feel like towing my boat there and back, and I'm sure if your interested in going on Lake Michigan you would not have to trailor your boat all the way here.  Not to mention I know what to use and how here and you do there.  Please contact me at (262)-388-3112.  Oh my name is Scott hope to here from you soon.  Timing to go would be good because I am a disabled veteran.  Still very am to fish.  Sorry for the long winded conversation just wanted to explain.  HOPE TO HERE FROM YOU SOON

Water clear now big fish are east of Kelleys 3 miles in deep water harness bite heating up west  of rattle and green work it coming east to the cut between those island in the 30 Fow 1 oz 35 back pinks and root beer colored blades. White bass spawn is on so getting those makes for work check baits often. Marking fish then no takers gets frustrating but walleyes all of a sudden are feeding like nuts then shut off again you may go for hours with nothing then get active fish and catch 10 in a pass. Work the school till they shut down then find another active pod. Most fish are 20 inch range shorts are common this year like no other a few bigger fish mixed in but for average smaller in size. Work areas as you may go hours with no marks but when you find a active pod its game on .

Fished 4/21&22 out of wild wings. Weather dictated the jig bite, which seems to be slowing. Some big fish taken via trolling by C-can. Most fish taken in 12 FOW jigging, was better with south wind. Stiff north wind on 22nd made things difficult. 2 man limit on 21st, half that on 22nd.

will be spending the next month in Cleveland on a business trip. Does it make any sense to bring ice fishing equipment. Was hoping to fish for some of those trophy walleyes near bass island.
