Launch Location - Fenwick Marina - Oak Harbor, OH
Two trip day. For the morning trip we had a single person book the boat for a learning charter this morning. They wanted to gain more knowledge about targeting Lake Erie Walleye. We hit the water a little after 6am. Went to our waypoints from last weekend and found chalky colored water. The most recent rain and NW wind stirred things up. We headed to a different area and found some decent marks and some better looking water. Set lines on a mud flat in 25' of water. 4 dipsy rods and 5 board rods. Dipsy divers immediately started pulling fish. Our new Custom Color Badmo Spoon in the 2.5" size was KILLER! That spoon took nearly half our fish today. Couldn't buy a bite on cranks. This is why we run both cranks and spoons and let the fish tell us. Spoons did 95% of the damage again today. The only crank that caught today was a shaky shad in gold digger, 60' unassisted. Best dipsy settings were size zero at 48' back on a zero setting and 60-68 back on a 3 setting. Spoons behind tadpoles caught as well but dipsy divers ruled the day by leaps and bounds. Slower today at 2.4mph. Since it was a single person charter we kept the mate and captains fish, otherwise we would have been done in 5 minutes lol. Released a lot with shorts and sheepshead mixed in. Mayflies were at the gas station in decent numbers. Had a few land on the boat while on the water but not bad yet. Afternoon charter in a few hours. Stay tuned! Good luck to everyone! If you are interested in fishing with us, click HERE to check out our Lake Erie Charter Fishing Business Get Fish Charters.
