The rest of the month of August brought a few difficult days of Perch fishing with some less than ideal results. With the waters of Lake Erie heating up it continued to produce some large bug hatches and ideal conditions for the sand fleas to become easy food for the Yellow Perch. As the month of September arrived it brought a much needed boost in the fishing. We started September with a repeat client choosing to take his friends and family out on a Lake Erie Walleye trip. The weather was great and the fishing was steady. We left the dock bright and early heading east towards Cedar Point Beach in Sandusky, Ohio; the crew had never trolled for Walleye with us but picked up the system very quickly. Everyone took turns setting gear and reeling in fish. We ran the same program of Spoons and Tru trip Jets that we have all season long. The program really hasn’t changed much for the few months, Michigan Stinger Spoons in purple and pink combinations producing the best catch rates pulled at speeds of 2.1-2.7 mph. The catching has slowed a little in terms of speed but the fish have continued to grow producing a nice average grade. The start of September was a good one with this group taking home 22 Lake Erie Walleye. We did manage to lose a few fish before we could net them but overall it was a great day. It was good to see this group again and looking forward to their next trip.
