Fished from March 1st through March 6th on Sunday we caught our limit of 8 walleye using orange silver / orange gold little cleo's in 26ft. Monday we caught 7 walleye in the same location about two miles away from west sister island just to the left one mile. Tuesday we moved in to 24ft and used silver little cleo's and found the afternoon bite and caught 4 walleye. Wedsday we moved deep into 29ft caught 2 waleye and 2 perch on silver little cleo. Thursday morning we fished shallow 19ft and didn't catch anything so we moved to the location where we caught the afternoon bite in 24ft and caught a couple on the gold orange and gold silver little cleo's. Friday we fished at the 26ft location in the morning then moved to the 24ft location for the afternoon bite and caught some fish at both locations using the gold orange and gold silver little cleo's. All together two of us caught 28 walleye with the bigist at 12lb.

Everything you mentioned will work, I use 8 lb line with a floro leader. Almost everybody tips with shiners and uses a stinger hook.

Hi guys, might be making the trip over by there this winter. If the ice is good. I have a few questions though. Any help would be appreciated. What jigs do you guys use out there? Jigging raps, Swedish pimples, Do jiggers, Little cleos. What size and colors? Also what pound ice fishing line do you guys recommend. I am getting up there in age. Have always wanted to get out there and it was just never possible. Hopefully this winter will be the year. For the trip of a life time. Again Thanks for any and all help. Charlie.

Fished north of West Sister this morning pulling a 3 person limit in 4 hours. 1 oz in line with harnesses and crawlers. Most fish were in top 18 feet of water with a few coming on bottom bouncers. Blades with purple seemed to do best. Speeds were 1.2 to 1.5. Fish were perfect eating size 16 - 22 inches. Great day on the lake. Most of the Charters were trolling spoons behind jet divers and catching plenty.

Fished out of Port Clinton for my first time on Erie. Went with Shore Nuf charters on the Watona head boat last Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. Had fun but heard a lot of you should have been here last week. Left with 1 nice walleye and 1 eater cat both times out. There were a few people with more but most left with no fish. The Mayfly hatch may not have helped our cause. Both trips I fished next to people who said they left with their limits multiple times in the previous weeks but not that day. If I come back next year I might have to come a couple of weeks earlier. Took the Jet boat to Put In Bay Sunday afternoon. The microbrew pub was good and lots of good food everywhere. Just watch out for the crazy golf cart drivers. Later D.W.

Had a great weekend fishing with Capt. Ryan from Eye Spy Fishing Charters. He put us on fish as usual and we caught some beautiful walleyes. We trolled both days and ended Saturday with 36 and Sunday with 33. Fish ranged in size from 17" up to 27" with an average of 21-22"

Thanks Capt. Ryan!
