2012 was a fantastic year for walleye fishing as many of you probably read about or witnessed. Due to the mild winter that the whole country experienced, fishing started earlier than usual for some of the diehard fishermen. Light winds and a lack of rain made everything pleasant and productive for most of the spring. As you would expect, the jig fishing started early and finished early leading way to some of the best casting and trolling in years. Then came the annual mayfly hatch, early as well, the last Saturday in May for the first round making the fishing a little bit tougher. The good news was that it didn't seem as bad as past years, however, it was spread out for nearly a month. The lack of significant rainfall also meant minimal algae to deal with throughout the heat of the summer. I spent the summer doing a lot of trolling providing first time visitors and veterans alike with a new experience which proved to be productive since the walleye were reluctant to school up enough for a good casting bite. Excellent quality fish were caught all year long! It truly appeared to be the right choice for many of my charter clients matching ability with results.
Many charters started
perch fishing earlier than usual last year, around the middle of July, and did
very well on these smaller but very tasty guys. August is generally a good time to be perch
fishing since the weather is more pleasant, winds are lighter and the fish seem
to be somewhat larger and biting well.

Here are a few things to consider when booking your trip. If you like jig fishing and don't mind the cold spring weather then early April until about the second week of May is best, but depends on the water temperature. Early spring trolling with crankbaits can prove successful for landing big female, post spawn fish when winds allow. Casting Lake Erie weapons or weight forward spinners with night crawlers usually takes precedence after the jig bite in early May and lasts throughout the summer. Using bottom bouncers while casting provides you with additional lines in the water that sometimes outproduces casting and can become fast and furious. Trolling, while considered by many as meat fishing can be just as challenging as casting and usually keeps you busy changing lures, trying to figure out what the walleye want to eat and takes place anytime from the end of May until fall. This is a great option when fishing with children or first time adults. Flexibility with technique is a must if you want to take home a good catch of fish. Filling your cooler is my priority!
The perch, frequently referred to as yellow perch is regarded by many as the best tasting fish that the great lakes has to offer. Perch fishing begins anytime in July or August and we'll be using the traditional Lake Erie spreader or my hand crafted perch rigs tipped with native Lake Erie emerald shiners. Perch fishing provides great action for young children fishing for their first time as well as adults and you can't beat the great taste. If you like to perch fish then this is for you!
For a slightly different experience, try a 50/50 day of fishing, 1/2 day of walleye fishing combined with a 1/2 day of perch fishing. Arrangements must be made at least the evening before we leave the dock so that we're sure to have the right bait onboard.
