Well Labor Day weekend is this week and it’s the start of some predicted great fall fish on the lake. Over the last few days fishing has been day to day. Most of the charters are docked but the catching is still going forward with walleye and perch.
The loose weeds are causing problems with the trollers west of the islands, but east they are doing very well with dipsys and jets. The best areas are the line east of Kelley’s and 25 miles east at the sandbar. Those fish are starting to move west as the water cools. The drifters are on a day to day fishing experience in the open waters and the rocks are really producing. The night fishing should start within the next few weeks.
Perch fishing is still doing well between the islands and east of Kelley’s, reasons are the water conditions are better than west of the islands. With the northeaster’s the water west of the islands and around Port Clinton has been worked up and the clarity is limited. The shiners are still available at the local bait shops.
As the season starts to close down I am looking forward to two things on the lake. The first is fall smallmouth in the Canadian waters until the boats are pulled and the second is ice fishing for walleye during the winter.
We still have some dates available for this fall. just give us a call at 1-877-434-9711.
Good fishin
