Today we had the pleasure of fishing with 3 generations of the Fred Zink family. The Zink's are notorius for developing the finest game calls and decoys for the avid hunters worldwide. We headed out to the nothwest corner of Kelleys Island in hopes of catching big fall walleyes. We set our lines back 25-35 on our shallow side and 90-120 feet back using all reefrunner deep divers in grey ghost, blue moon eye, and perch naked. It took a while for the fish to go but when they started we pulled some nice walleyes in the 4-9 pound range and ended up catching 15. With lots of jokes and spending the day with Gunner and the The Zink's we had another great day with lots of laughs and very good walleye fishing.

Today our group caught the biggest box of walleyes to date this season. We headed out to the northwest corner of Kelleys Island and set our reef runners back 110-140 on our deep side and 40-90 back on our shallow side and proceeded to hammer some monster walleyes. We caught 22 and 5 were fish OH 's. Our best color was pink lemonade and perch naked.

Today we had all intentions to head back to Pelee Island with my good friends with the Dr. Bob Moore Group from Hicksville Hospital. When we started out things looked pretty good but as we got between Kelleys and Middle Island waves were 4-6 feet and bigger. We decided it was too rough to go another 15 miles, so we headed over to the east side (out of the wind) of Kelleys Island in 39 feet of water off the airport and caught real nice perch and our limit. We have a walleye trip tommorrow so we will give a complete report Monday evening.

Well we headed out today with some seasoned veterans and headed over to Pelee for some jumbo perch and after the fog lifted and a light east wind picked up the perch started biting and we really caught some nice fish. After we caught our limit of 150 we headed back to around Ballast Island for some hog walleye trolling and we were 2 for 3. Trolled stick baits in purple perch, naked perch and pink panties naked. We caught our fish at 50-60 feet off the boards.

My best friend came to visit from Tampa FL, Dan Mills and I have been friends since grade school and he got a chance to perch fish with us the past two days in Canada, Pelee Island. We fished the same spot 4 miles due east of the helo pad and caught our limit both days, 180 perch yesterday and 150 perch today. We had some 13 inch perch the last two and almost all were jumbo's. Tryed walleye fishn also today with no luck east of Ballast Island in 36 feet of water trolling stickbaits.

Today we headed out to same spot due East of the North Channel of Pelee Island 4 miles. We struggled for the 1rst 2.5 hours the fish were there but won't bite so we waited it out and we caught the biggest limit of perch I've seen all year. We caught 180 jumbo perch and threw very few back

Today the plan was to catch jumbo perch Pelee Island again (hard to perch fish anywhere else) we were due east, 4 miles from the Channel Markers on the northeast corner of this magnificent island. We caught our 4 person limit in 2 hours and only threw back a handful. The walleye are also starting to bite East of Ballist Island off middle bass. We will be fishing every day this week including our weekend if the weather holds out.

With two good weather days behind us an with a light southwest wind forecast we headed back out to Pelee Island (Grub Reef). The big perch started hitting and we limited in a few hours. We really caught some quality perch using tri-rigs tipped with lake shiners one crank up off the bottom. And by the way we did get checked by the Canadian DNR for license and fish count 1rst time I've ever been checked.

Yesterday was a great day for a boat ride fishing was horrible, we moved 7 times with not much to show for. We headed out to the North east corner of Pelee Island Canada in search of Jumbo Perch. It was ideal conditions light winds from the East and water clairity was OK. We struggled moved around to three spots here than decided to go to ole reliable sheridan point on the west side of Pelee and caught a handful of perch. The water temp is 50 degrees and has dropped 4-5 degrees since last week so we believe that the lake is turning over, however we are heading back out today so hopefully we will have a better report tonight.
