Lake Erie Fishing

Postby Sharpefly » Tue Apr 14, 2009 7:10 pm

Well fishing up on Lake Erie has been a little slow this spring. Water temp around 40. Have had my new to me Parker out 5 times between the snow days. Have caught a few Steelhead. The streams up here are winding down on Steelheads. A few pike are starting to be caught and with the air temps and sun shine this weekend may start seeing some bass.

Looks like fun

Seems there's always one "off" species in the mix with you E (no such thing as trash fish if it pulled on your line!) :?

Nice work!
It's always great to see some Spring Creek browines. I sure to miss them: I used to fish there 2-3 times/week, now I'm lucky to make it up once per year.

Dave, Keep in mind that we actually have awards for trash fish. One of the most elusive (and coveted) awards is our "Grand Slam" in Maine. Anyone who can catch the Big Three: Sunny, Perch, Chub, or any other acceptable species, wins this award. No one has taken the title for years, but I believe the most recent winner was...(you probably know)

Hey Emerson...The Grannoms have been going gangbusters since last friday...You should get back up that way again. BWOs are really starting to show...kind of late if you ask me...but its supposed to be 80's this weekend. Cold water and warm days...bugs galore.

Someone mentioned the lake. Erie tribs have been fishing well this spring. Some fresh ones have continued to come in for some reason.
