6-11 Lake Erie Fishing Report
Fenwick Marina - Oak Harbor, OH
After two weeks the lake finally looks like it has settled back to normal after the crazy NE blow we had. The water looked great everywhere we checked this morning. No more chalk/silt look like we had. The East wind this morning was producing consistent 2 ft waves where we were at. It was 11-13mph according to the closest buoy. We left the launch around 6:15, got out to 31ft around 6:45. By 8am we had our limit and threw back a ton. 5 and 6 on at a time. Lots of quads. We started out setting a few cranks in addition to our spoons. We couldn't keep up with the cranks since we were so busy with the dipsy rods, we just stuck to those. Ended up running size zero dipsy divers on a zero setting out of the command center and size zero dipsy divers on a 2 setting out the sides. 38-46 back on the zero setting, 52-58 back on the 2 setting.This is what June fishing and SPOON season is all about! Insanely quick action and super easy style of trolling. Water was 72 degrees. We trolled 2.5-2.9mph today. Westerly troll with the east wind to our backs. Purple Demon was our best color but all were catching good today. Caught fish on shaky shads, reapers and bandits the few minutes we had them in the water. Lots and lots of shorts mixed in still but only a few sheep today. Bass fished the marina and caught a decent amount on the way in to add the cherry on top! It's on like Donkey Kong! Get out and put some spoons in the water! All divers and spoons used are in stock on our website!
6-6 Lake Erie Report
Fenwick Marina - Oak Harbor, OH
Didn't want to make a 14 mile run this morning, so we tried to find clean water closer to home. Water was still a mess out to 8 miles out. Checked 26-34 ft, east and west for miles in front of the launch and it's still chalky. Set lines a few times on the motherload of marks but dirty water and just short walleye. Around 9am we ran the the inside edge of the reefs in 18-22ft of water and started picking away. Water was much cleaner in close with the south winds we've had. We caught a ton of fish with lots of short walleye and Sheephead mixed in. Fishing faster today. 2.5-2.8. We were targeting the top 12' of the water column mostly as they were feeding high on bait. They were puking up minnows in the boat. 69-72 degree surface temp. Tru-trip 30's with spoons, blue chrome bandit and shaky shad size 7 did the damage. Shaky Shad was probably best overall. Shakys 25-60 back. Bandits 30-40 back. Had some doubles and triples. Tru-trip 30s caught keepers deeper at 40-45 back. Lake was glass today! Sun was getting hot when we started pulling lines around noon. Good luck to those heading out this afternoon! Cool cloud above the marina on the way in looking like a fish 🐟
6-4 Lake Erie Fishing Report
Fenwick Marina - Oak Harbor, OH 
Started out of the marina this morning with the wind picking up. Our area we had been fishing was still extremely dirty from the blow and had less than 6" visibility, so we were starting over again. Ran out the opposite direction 8-9 miles to find some decent color water and good marks in 31ft. Got some nice fish on the first few passes, then the waves got stupid lol. We ran in tighter to shore on the reef complex and found some decent water and marks in 20-21'. We caught a TON of fish! Multi-species day to say the least! It took 10 assorted fish to get a keeper eye. Monster Sheephead, white perch, white bass, short walleye. Part of the game this time of year fishing in close in the western basin but still a blast! Didn't want to battle the wind and search for fish elsewhere, so we picked away in this shallow area and got our fish. The wind laid down for a bit then around noon it started to pick back up and white cap again. I imagine the afternoon will be rolling pretty decent. Bandits, Shaky Shads and Tru-trip 30s with spoons all contributed pretty evenly. Best for us overall today was the Purple Flash Bandit @ 55' back. Overall cranks beat spoons today. The last few trips that was not the case, but today it was! Our biggest fish of the day was on a spoon behind a Tru-trip @ 35' back. 2.3-2.7 mph was our best speed today. Water temp was 64-65. 1-2' of visibility. Still some chalky tinge to the water from the blow, in the western reef area anyway. Good luck to everyone this weekend! Hopefully the wind doesn't kick up too bad tomorrow!

Fenwick Marina - Oak Harbor, OH
Smokeshow again this morning. Ridiculous bite on the WNC Shaky Shad 7's and spoons. 24-26ft of water. 67 degrees. 2.3-2.5 mph. Circles got em going like crazy! We only had 2 lines out in the first 45 minutes because the shaky shads were getting hit so quick! 60' back unassisted on the shakys. Spoons turned on as the morning progressed. Handled a ton of fish and had a blast! No better way to break in the new 2 caddy command center! Check out the shaky shads and spoons used today on our website! With the water temp finally warmed up, you don't want to fish without these!

Fenwick Marina - Oak Harbor, OH
Hit the water at sunrise. Ran to the same place we ended last night. Fish moved, so we had to do some graphing. Found them about a mile from where we left off the night before. 24-26ft and we were targeting the suspended fish 15-20 down. Dipsy Divers on a zero setting out of the command center and Tru-trip 30's behind boards were our program. All 5 of our top color spoons were catching but Purple Demon was best overall. 2.2-2.3mph. Lake was flat, had to do S turns and keep zagging. Boated a ton of fish including short walleye, white perch and white bass. Got our walleye limit early and continued fun fishing until around 10am. The sun was hot and the midge bugs were out, so in we went. Another amazing trip! Good luck to everyone this weekend!
The spoon bite is definitely ON!

Rolled in to town late and decided to make a quick last light trip. Lines in the water around 730pm and they were jumping in the boat! Boated 40-50 fish between 730-dark30. Everything we put in the water caught but the SPOON bite is on 🔥 Spoons were whooping the cranks 15:1
Dipsies pulling spoons straight out the back in the prop wash did best by far. Tru-trips behind boards were a close second. The last 30 minutes of light we were catching a fish within 10 seconds or less of the dipsy rod being in the rod holder. Absolute killer action. It was like hop scotch dancing around all the rods with fish flopping all over lol. Water temp really came up in the last week. Ended the night around 66-67 degrees. 26-27ft of water. 2.5mph. Best night of the year! Tomorrow and this weekend will be awesome fishing! 🐟🐟
5/20/21 Trip
5-15-21 Lake Erie Report
Oak Harbor, OH Fenwick Marina 
Late report, got busy after we finished today. Hit the water at daybreak. Had 11 in the box by 7am, including a few doubles and triples as the sun came up. After the boats swarmed, the bite for us was dead again like yesterday. Tried different areas and picked a few here and there. Ended a little after noon and ended on a BANG 💥 Moved a few miles and switched our program again. Spoons behind Tru-trips was on the donkey kong. Once we got the program in the water it was nuts. Caught and released for awhile since it was such a nice day. The Tru-trips outperformed the Dipsys since we were fishing in shallow water and used the planer boards to get them away from the boat. Nascar spoons were not in the water more than a minute and they were getting smoked. Spoons behind Tru-trip 30s at 45-50 back. Reapers and Bandits early took our fish 35-80 back at 2.3 mph. Blue Shiner stock bandit was the best crank overall for us today. Water was around 60 degrees when we finished. Fished anywhere from 17ft to 27ft today. We have our top 5 spoons and Dipsy Divers now available on the website. Tru-trips are on the way and will be added this week! Great day on the water and gorgeous weather!

Oak Harbor OH, Fenwick Marina 
Launched at sunrise. We were greeted with white caps right out of the gate, which surely wasn't forecasted. They missed that one by a mile. Set lines in 20' and worked deeper from there. Boated 4 nice fish in the first 10 minutes. Got 3 more within a few minutes after that. Once that flurry was over the bite dulled down and it was a steady pick until just after 9am when we finished. Caught and released a few as we were pulling lines during a flurry at the end. Water temp 56-57 degrees. 1.7-1.8mph. They wanted it a little slower today as compared to our last few trips. Water had a nice green tint to it. 19-26ft. Fish were all over. WNC Reapers and Bandits caught an even amount of fish. Fish were puking up minnows as we were putting them in the livewell. Lots of bait out there! Got to test the new model two caddy systems that are about to go into production next week! SB reapers caught a few. Blue Shiner Reapers and Blue Shiner Bandits were the best color for us. Pretty much everything in the water caught fish today. The wind laid down and it got super nice out there! Saw lots of casters and a few fish caught. Saw a boat capsized at a dock in the marina on the ride in. Bad day for the boat owner. Gave our walleye away at the dock to some anglers that struggled today. They were grateful! Remember, we have the WNC Reapers and Bandits in stock and much more! Give us a look!
