Default Walleye Heaven

A dream came true last week when I got to fish Lake Erie for 5 days straight with my Dad and counsin. I had never fished a lake that big. Before going I was told that I should expect some days in the cabin due to weather. However, we were lucky to have unbelievable weather. We got on the water each day, with only one day having over 15 mph winds. That day it was blowing 22 mph, but we found shelter behind islands and still managed to scratch out walleyes.

I was deligated the captaining duties and we did pretty good for never fishing Lake Erie before. We had days where we caught limits and others were we were only trophy hunting. Each of us caught the biggest walleye of our lives. We caught 4 fish over 30", 9 over 27", and many more over 25". I also forged unforgettable memories with my Dad. The pictures say it all. Out of State counts for PBs!

Generally speaking the morning was tough fishing. Many boats were only pulling out 1-3 fish per day. Being the grinders that we are, we fished every day until the sun went down. Being out on Lake Erie waves for 12 hours can really put a hurt on you! There was a reason we were staying out later than most boats. Eighty percent of the fish were caught after 4pm.

What a fishery, not too common for a place to spit out good numbers of trophy sized fish. Nice work!
