We left the dock in Marblehead just before 8 am with some repeat clients and headed to the east, arriving at the Cedar Point Sandusky, Ohio area in some leftover rollers from the night before to an empty area. That would change very quickly as the wind began to shift creating a better wave report and flocks of boaters arriving in the area. We had a nice line started and Walleyes were being brought into the boat with ease, the catching attracted several boaters to try and push us off our line and also run right on top of us for the morning. The area we were trying to fish in is a large area but for some reason the boaters in that area decided they needed to be right on top of us. As I tried to maintain the line that was productive, proved to be too difficult and dangerous as people in the area were not maintaining awareness and created several close calls. Making a decision to leave the crowds and try to find our own fish again proved to be a wise choice as we moved down into some shallower water that had a few pockets of nice sized fish. This group fished with me last year for Lake Erie Perch and had probably the fastest day ever, they said I had set the bar high but was able to match it today with some quality fish. These guys are true sportsmen and I look forward to their trip each year. Their trip for next year is already penciled in our calendar and I am looking forward to it. We ran the same program of Michigan Spoons and Tru Trip Jets at 2.4-2.6 mph produced a steady catch of Lake Erie Walleye all day. We have continued to change our leads depending on the conditions and fish preferences but this area has been pretty consistent at 50-70 back. Fishing season is coming to an end for us in the Marblehead area as winter will be here before we know it.
We hope to be your choice for Lake Erie Charter Fishing
