8-19-22 Lake Erie Walleye Fishing Report

Launch Location - Fenwick Marina - Oak Harbor, Ohio

A hot sunny August evening turned out to be some equally hot walleye action! We set lines around 5:15pm. The wind was supposed to be south and was blowing decently out of the ESE. Wasn't terrible but was rougher than forecasted! Big surprise. 😂 We found a couple schools of fish in tight and started boxing fish right away. Lots of bait balls around! Flicker Shad 7's in Atomic Blueberry and Storm Chaser were best with Rattle Tots right there with em. 30-40' back on both cranks. Speed was 2.3-2.7mph. Firetiger Rapala J-7s caught a handful of nice fish behind the size zero dipsy on a 3 setting, 30 back. Couldn't buy a bite on anything else but those three lures. Landed 2 different walleye quads, which was absolutely awesome and they were all keepers 👍👌. Got our 18 fish limit in short order and released many more on the cleanup. The algae wasn't bad but the water had a distinct green tint. Floating weeds were a pain off/on but not unbearable. All by ourselves chasing these far west end resident fish was a BLAST 💥

 Lure of the day: Custom Flicker Shad - Size 7
