  2. western lake erie report" fished western basin fri., sat., sun. june 5th-7th. fri. was approx. 3 miles northwest of west sister in 28 fow. had my two sons on board ages 9 and 13. they rann all the gear big boards with three lines on each side. we started at 7:15 and were done with our 18 walleye by 11:00. fished jet forties at 65 back with mi. stinger hiway huckleberry taking most of the fish with a couple purple demons thrown in. Sat. fished with some older retirees. started out the same area and really couldn't get a whole lot going. moved over near sputnick(turn around bouy) and struggled some more and managed to put 11 in the box. all fish came on huckleberry. Sun. fished back at fri. spot with a 9 yr. old, a five yr. old and buddy and his wife that haven't trolled much. we boated our thirty with 5-7 throwbacks and lost four or five at the boat. pretty much same programm as fr. but we moved the forty jets back to 85 and the hot spoon was again huckleberry and puss-n-boots also took a bunch of fish. took us about 6 hours to get em'. awesome day of fishing. the quality of fish is awesome. we had five fish in the cooler that went over five pounds and at least 15 that were over 3.5. the rest were about 2 lbs. also caught one with a michigan jaw tag. and don't know who caught it we discovered it as we were cleaning the fish. moral of the story don't think the old guys can out fish the kids and newbies.

  5. "new buffalo memorial weekend" Fished new buff fri. evening, sat. all day and sun till noon the fishing was steady. fri. evening boated eleven fish between two boats most fish came on double orange crush, lemon ice and green dolphins on full cores out in 70-80 fow, sat. picked up twelve between the two boats in the same area with the same spoons. sun boated 7 and probably lost 10. same presentations. chatter on the radio was alot of steelhead being takien out in 195-205 fow flatlining spoons off boards. never did find a fish cleaning station in new buff. but stayed at the transit docks and they let us clean right there and even let us put the guts in the dumpster. not a bad set up. the fish that didn't come on full core came off the riggers at 56. took only a few steelies off half core. all in all the fishing was pretty good. for two and half days of fishing the two boats went 30 for about 65. not a great batting average but not bad for some amateurs. out of the 30 fish we kept 3 lakers for smoking, six steelies, six cohos, 15 kings. the largest king was 19#.
  6. does anyone know of a cleaning station in new buffalo or close by? any help appreciated.
  7. Anybody have any reports for new buff.? I am coming up this weekend fri. thru mon. would appreciate any insight or helpful hints were to start. i will be staying at the muni. marina. the boat name is nut-n-eze. give me a shout . i am always willing to share info. thanks

  13. I don't run my 18' starcraft holiday for salmon, but you can't beat them for duck hunting on lake erie. we always keep our eyes open as you can normally find the ones from the 70's for about a grand. and they ttake the big water great and have a ton of room for decoys
  14. wheres the best place to get the thin fin? thanks todd
  15. good job. good way to keep the blood flowing though.
  16. ice man, i'm new to the site and saw your post and thought i'd share. last year first week of august the water was flipped and i bought a spoon off of capt. chucks hot board that took 10 of 12 on our last day. it was a yeck magnum smooth silver spoon with glow tape on the left side. sorry i don't know the name and i can't find it in the yeck catalog. i have just sent yeck a e-mail if i hear back i'll let you know./ i only had one and wish i would of had 10. it was hotter than hot. it absolutly made our trip later todd
  17. ok all you guys helped me on the new okuma reels, how about the best place to get a depth raider speed temp troll?
  18. thanks for the heads up. i've been looking around and you are absolutely correct. i can't seem to find a better price. thanks todd
  19. thanks for the heads up. I stop into chucks everytime were up that way. last year bought a spoon that was up on his hot board and i don't know the name of it but it was very hot for us the first week of august when the water flipped. it was a magnum yeck that was silver with green glow tape on one side. pick a couple up if you get a chance. i only had one and wish i had ten. it took 9 of 11 fish on our last day in august. my boat name is nut-n-eze give me a shout. i will be in ludington at the muni. marina the last week of july and every weekend in august. thanks todd

  21. welcome joe. Are u a duck hunter as well? i duck hunt about 50 times a season and look to trade a couple of hunts every now and then. i lease about 1,000 acres every year off rt. 2 near jerusalem township. let me know if you want to hook up on a trade. I carry five final approach blinds, 12 dozen field decoys and a whole bunch of other crap. which all taht might be null and void if your not a duck hunter but by looking at your user name i';m assoming u are. let me know. todd
  22. Mike, Just stumbled across the site while digging around on the net. Takes me about four and a half if i'm pulling the boat or three without. It's 285 miles from my driveway to the marina. I saw the replies about the reels. Thanks again for your help. it looks like northland outdoors is the cheapest by about ten bucks. thanks todd
  23. Hello all, Just got hip to this site and love it already. I have been an avid Lake Erie walleye fisherman(western basin) since childhood. I have a 2007 23' baha gle outfitted with everything for walleye, prch and salmon. All my trolling gear is big jon. I have been salmon fishing since a teenager with my father and on some charters but just started running my own boat last year up in Ludington. And yes i'm hooked!!!!!!!! I have alot of hand me down salmon gear and am looking to upgrade some of the reels to accomadate lead core. I am really looking at the okuma convectors. I only live 40 minutes from cabelas. Does anyone know of a better place to get them? Always willing to chat fishing send me a message. Todd
