May -8th - 2012 -GREAT DAY!

The day started with heavy fog, and I had to use radar to get to the fish! Started the day north of the Niagra Reef. The action started slow but as the fog lifted and the sun broke. The walleye came to life. Stinger Spoons and harnesses on True Trip 40 Divers, 30 to 45 feet back was best. Finished the day at 1PM south of D Can with 36 fish.

May -5th - 2012 -Fishing north of American Eagle Shoal, waves were 2-4 and building to 3-5. Fish were hungry for worm harnesses trolled at 1.5 kts. Fish are also taking bottom bouncers and long lining colorado spinners. A few fish were in the 10 lb class although the majority of the fish today were in the 3-6lb. class.

Feb -22nd - 2012 - Hopefully this will not jinx the early spring season, but a milder than normal winter has allowed some early fishing. Catches have been spotty with the best results coming by trolling raplas around "D" can. A few have been taken around Green Island as well. All were taken in small boats launched from Catawba or Turtle Creek.

Jun 5 09 - We introduced a new crew to the bounty of Lake Erie as a limit catch was had by 1pm. At first we thought we had the peta group aboard as a lot of the first fish were released back to the lake. After having a prayer meeting, the limits started rolling in the boat. Scoreing a 29 and 28 inch fish. Great day fishing the Starve Island Break.

Aug 13 2008 -  Captain Ed's Report - It is fairly slow, but we are still getting some walleyes trolling out near the islands and the canadian line. I ran one perch trip, did fair with a few big perch in the mix. Iit is still a little early for the prime perch fishing, I figure another week or two and it will start to fire up.  
Jul 12 2008 -  Captain Ed's Report - Fishing is still very good for us trolling small spoons, mixed with medium size spoons, such as DREAMWEAVER super slims have been producing good catches. Casting in U.S.waters is pretty much dead, but guys that are still casting are going over to Canadian waters around the shallows or the Hen/Chick Iislands. Trolling out by the west reef out to the Canadian line has been good for me. Some fish are also being caught neer Green Island, and between B & C can along the firing range trolling.  
Jul 12 2008 -  Captain Ed's Report - Fishing for walleye has been good, using downriggers, dipseys, slide divers, and planer boards. All the fish have been taken on DREAMWEAVER WD AND SUPER SLIM SPOONS, troll casting is very poor. We are also starting to pick up a few steelhead. The areas we have been fishing include, east of Kellys Island in the deeper water, out near the canadian boarder, out by the islands and out off of Huron, depends on weather as to where we set up. Having had several bad storms come through here. Spoon colors very from day to day, PURPLE MELON, MAY FLY, GRAPE JELLY, AND WALLEYE WHACKER have all been productive.

Jun 27 2008 -  Captain Ed's Report - The fishing is very good for us right now trolling with downriggers, divers and planer boards, casting has not been very productive. Our best lures are Dreamweaver spoons in the WD size. The last few days purple melon and may fly, have been the hot colors. We are also doing good running Dreamweaver super slims off diver rods. We have been fishing east of Kellys Island in the deeper water and also out to the Canadian/U.S. line north/northwest of North Bass Island, depending on the wind. With the fish still averaging over twenty inches.

Jun 12 2008 -  Captain Ed's Report -The fishing is very good for the most part, but we are fighting the wind. Casting trips are producing fish, but the better fishing is when we troll,this is when we are catching our larger fish. Dreamweaver WD Walleye spoons in the purple melon color has been best lately. We are setting our Big Jon down riggers deep, 2 low divers, 6 planer board rods is the standard set up on my boat. We are catching fish anywhere from Catawba, to east of Kellys Island. Every day is different because of weather. I will be running the next several days and the weather looks a little better than the gails we have been fishing in!
May-30-08 - Captain Ed's Report -We have been doing very good fishing with limit catches each trip. Trolling near Rattle Snake and Northbass island area in 30 plus ft. of water. using "Dreamweaver WD Walleye Spoons" colors very from day to day, but walleye whacker, and absolute cranberry colors have been the best. Most fish are comeing off the planer boards, but some are taken off the diver rods. Catching bigger fish this year, 20inch average plus.

May-15-08 - Captain Ed's Report -We are fishing a little past west sister island and doing very well caught 20 today Avg 20 plus inches in size.  
Apr-26-08- Captain Ed's Report - Fishing is at its best right now as it is jig fishing season. I did not have a charter today, but Ii have been running fairly steady. Limit catches on each trip the last couple of weeks. Fishing the Davis Besse\ Locust point area around the reefs and k-can. Purple and john deere green hair jigs are the best bait so far somtimes minnows help, but lately just the plain jig has been the best. Thursday Ii had over a twenty inch average on fish.
