Lake Erie Fishing Reports


November 2017

11-13-17 - The "Pirate Clipper" is hibernating!
Pulled the boat today, no more reports for this year! I will be continuing to update this page with reports from earlier this season.

Please keep us in mind if you're interested in a charter! Prime dates fill quickly, with some weekends booked up to 3 years in advance. Don't delay, call us TODAY! Thank you!

11-12-17 - One LAST Fun Run !!!
Just a few friends onboard today... After the north wind Thursday until Saturday morning, the water down inside dirtied up quite a bit. We ran north of Kelleys and found real clean water. There have been fish caught around the shoal and to the west, so we concentrated in that area. There was a tight pack of boats just above the shoal, so we stayed south and west of them. We didn't head out until noon, and it seems we may have missed an early bite. Started off strong, pulling 6 fish while we set up, and it steadily tapered off to nothing. Fished about 5 hours and came in with 22. Lost 3 more, just in case you're keeping track!

Started with Tru-Trips and HJ12's on one side, Bandits on the other. Eventually switched everything to Bandits. Caught most of the fish high, only 25'-35' back. Started chasing lower marks, and did take a few fish 100'-120' back. Tough to narrow down a solid program, as we'd double up with fish on the deep side and shallow side each time!

11-9-17 - Walleye Limit!
Set up just a touch north of where we started yesterday....figured out we should've been just a touch south! Started off a little slow while we searched for them. Pulled east about a mile, picked a few along the way. Turned around, and picked even fewer, until we got just south of where we started - then it became a FIRE DRILL !!! Fish coming in faster than we could cycle the rods! Ended with the full 42 fish boat limit.

#40 Tru-Trips with the HJ12's did well again, but the spoons slacked way off. Ended up switching the spoon side to Bandits. Tru-Trips back 18' to 30', Bandits back 25' to 55'.

11-8-17 - Evening Fall Brawl Trip
We loaded the boat with Fall Brawlers, headed out hoping to catch better size fish. We decided to work the area around Marblehead Lighthouse, as there have been some reports of better size fish caught in the Sandusky Bay area. We concentrated on shallow rock breaks, near shore, targeting 10 to 20 FOW. We caught fish pretty steadily until about 8:30pm, then the fish slid out of the shallows and seemed to quit biting. Marks were great out in 30 FOW, but few takers. Ended up bringing 22 fish, two were near 9 lbs., but no money fish.

Pulled mostly P10's, no weight, 20' to 40' back, and they caught well. Tried several other cranks as well... Jr. Thundersticks caught some fish early, but not as many as the P10's. Bandits caught fish also.

11-8-17 - AM Walleye Trip - Quick LIMIT !!!
Only 3 hours DOCK-to-DOCK, caught our sponsors 24 walleye plus 5 more for the mate while tearing down the rods! That's about as fast as you want to go!

Same program as we've been running for a while now... #40 Tru-Trips both sides, one side pulling spoons, other side pulling #12 Husky Jerks. The spoon side bite was better set 45' - 55' back, but the HJ12 side bite was much higher, 18', 22', 25' back again. The Tru-Trip / Husky Jerk combo has been hard to beat lately!!!

10-29-17 - Unbelievable Super Smash Fest! Walleye Limit!
Rolled out at 7:30am, stiff breeze from the NW, but surface not bad, 2-3's. Started south of the SE corner of Kelley"s, had fish coming in even before all the rods were set. Near constant action until we finished up. Back at the dock by 12:30pm. With only a 3 person crew of sponsors today, Capt. Nate, DJ, and Jon's son Charlie rode along. Fish were coming in FAST, we were all reeling them in! Captured the full eight limits, since this may be my last trip of the season.

#40 Tru-Trips 40'-50'-60' back, one side pulling Yeck spoons, other side pulling #12 Husky Jerks. #50 Tru-Trips off the back corners, 45' back. Dipsy's 1.5 setting 49' back.
Click here to view the Catch! Click here to view the map.

10/22/17 - Walleye limit!
Fished east of Kelley's Island. Moderate SE wind in the morning created 2-4' waves. We set up going into the waves, pulled 21 fish before turning around. Wind started to lay back, surface calmed to 2' waves. Continued back NE along same line. Finished with 48 keepers right about where we started.

Pulled #40 Tru-Trips 45'-55'-65' back with Scorpion and Yeck spoons. #50 Tru-Trips 45', and #1 Dispy 1.5 setting at 47' with Stinger Spoons. Super FAST action at the end!

10/21/17 - Walleye limit!
Fished south of Cedar Point dump for walleye. Took 39 keepers. Then went perch fishing off the lighthouse. Dropped the hook and took 23 nice perch, slow but steady. Moved closer in, took only 3. Moved again, ended up near the clambed. Took 4 more there before calling it a day. Heard later that the perch bite was good early, and much further west.

#40 Tru-Trips with Scorpion and Yeck spoons, along with #50 Tru-Trips and Dipsy's pulling Stinger spoons. Walleye fishing was super fast at times.

10/20/17 - Walleye limit!
Fished south and east of Cedar Point dump towards Huron dump. Caught more towards CP. We were looking for BIG fish, not necessarily numbers. Didn't find any HAWGS, so we caught our limit of 30 nice eaters and called it a day.

Pulled #40 Tru-Trips 40'-110' back, with short-lipped Bandits, StrikeKing Walleye Elites, and some Bomber and Rapala stick baits. All short-lipped, shallow diving cranks pulled fine behind #40 Tru-Trips.

10/14/17 - Walleye limit!
Ran to the east side of Kelley's Island. Water fairly dirty after the blow, but the marks were great. Pulled for over a mile, only 3 keepers. Decided to pull our gear in and head east looking for cleaner water. Moved about 9 more miles east. Set up again and it was GAME ON!!! Finished with 37 keepers in under 2 hours out there.

Tru-Trips 45'-55' back with Scorpion and Yeck spoons.

10/09/17 - PM trip - Walleye Limit!
Fished east of Kelley's Island about 2-3nm. Pulled a limit of 30 keepers, took a while to get the last one after the sun went below the horizon. Too dark for a board photo when we got in. Sorry!

Tru-Trips and scorpion spoons 55' back. Had to put a few Bandits out to take the last fish. Nothing on spoons after the sun set below the hoizon.

10/01/17 - Smack-Down on another LIMIT of Walleye!
Day 2 with this same group, with calmer water today we were able to set up on the 'eyes right away. Didn't take long for group to fill the box! Then we spent some time perch fishing. Not a real quick perch bite, but we managed 63 above average size perch.

All Tru-Trips and spoons again, 45'-55' leads were killer!

09/30/17 - Perch/Walleye Combo Trip
Pretty high north winds overnight, supposed to lay down today... We decided to perch fish first and wait for the wind to die down some. Perching was pretty slow, only managed 15 tucked up under Kelleys. Finally had enough, so we braved to rough water for walleye. Headed out east of the island and were able to pick walleye out pretty steadily. Lost quite a few, but you'll have that when you're fishing 6 footers or better.

Tru-Trips and spoons 55'-75' back.

09/29/17 - Perch Trip
Slow perch bite again today.... moved a few times looking for something better, but probably should have stayed put. Looking for 150, we boxed 75.

Sorry! No photo today! Click here to view the map.

09/24/17 - Stupid FAST Walleye Action!
Set-up where we've been trolling, had to adjust a little further south, but once we found'em, it was CRAZY!!! Limit catch by 11:00AM. Great group of Pipeline workers today!

Tryng to take advantage of the early perch bite, we looked nead Lucy's first. Some marks, few bites. Moved a few times, still few bites. Didn't sound like anyone really doing well. Switched to walleye. Worked the edges of Gull Shoal. Slow but steady on walleye and a few nice smallmouth mixed in! Nice size walleye though!

Pulled Bandits 45'-75' back, no weight.

August 2017

August Summary
I usually don't book August very heavily, because I'm ready for a little break myself! Need some time to take the family on a vacation! Perch fishing was hit or miss it seemed, some boats would do well, while others not so good. Perch fishing improved earlier than expected on the west side of the islands, and seemed to slow down on the east side. But there were always exceptions! They were hard to pattern! Also, I don't always take pictures of perch... I kinda feel like once you've seen one cooler of perch, they all tend to look the same!

The walleye fishing was better in the island area than it has been in previous years. Large numbers of fish seemed to hold in the area just west of Gull Shoal for quite a while. Some days found them more on the shoal, with a good crankbait bite, but most days they continued to suspend in the deeper water to the west. Still some throwbacks, but more keeper size fish most days.


08/26/17 - Walleye - Limit!
Great 1st time group today, father and sons... Fishing was a little slower today, but that is always expected with a limited number of lines in the water. We captured their limit of walleye, and had a great time doing it! We fished the area NW of the Huron Dumping Grounds today.

Pulled #40 Tru-Trips with spoons today, 75' back was best.

08/08/17 - Short Perch Trip Today
Corporate group today, and they wanted to be in early! Perch fishing was good and steady, with only 4 people fishing, we were able to take their 120 perch, and one BONUS walleye! Got lucky enough to drop the hook right on'em, and never had to move.

Sorry! No photo today! Click here to view the map.

08/07/17 - The wind is our Nemesis!
Did a lot of running around today... started off pulling for walleye, but the recent winds have broken a lot of grass loose, and unfortunately it's clogging up the water where the walleye are! There's a lot of fish still in the area west of Gull Shoal, but the grass has made that too difficult to troll. The area north of Kelley Shoal has cleaner water, with some fish, just not huge numbers. The group decided to switch to perch fishing. Ran up by Taco Bell, put some nice size perch in the box!

Side note: Fishing charters are like anything else - you're going to get out of it exactly what you put into it. If you choose to sit inside the cabin all day, please don't miraculously expect the box to fill itself with fish! Catching limits is a group effort - not you watching me catch fish all day. If you quit on me - shouldn't I quit on you? Positive attitudes create positive results! Rant over, thank you.

Sorry! No photo today! Click here to view the map.

08/06/17 - Perch'n Again
Tricky perch day! The bite would start good, then die right away... We'd catch a few, then they'd quit. We moved several times, set up on some great marks, but it was one of those days when ther perch really don't want to cooperate. Took 54 Perch and 1 Walleye home today, but still enjoyed a beautiful day on the water!

08/05/17 - After some Perchies!
Today's trip was an afternoon trip, leaving at 12 Noon. We fished the area east of the monument, and fortunately set up right on a hungry school of willing Perch. Put 210 nice ones in the box, and never moved. I wish all Perch days were like this!

Sorry, the photo is not todays catch - I sometimes forget to take a picture of a cooler of perch. Truthfully, they all look the same anyway!

08/04/17 - Wind forced us to Perch fish today.

Wind was 20+mph from the SW and gradually increasing all day. We fished the protected water between West Harbor and Lakeside, on and around the clambed. Managed to convince 52 Perch that they would make a good meal for us! Fished with an awesome 1st time group from Wisconsin, and luckily we were able to get them out yesterday evening, while the winds were more favorable, to catch some real nice walleye!

Sorry! No photo today! It's only PERCH!!! Click here to view the map.

08/03/17 - Evening walleye quickie!

Tomorrow's group got into town early enough to take advantage of the current weather - because tomorrow looking a bit windy! Went out at 6pm to get them some walleye. Dodged a few passing storms while we were catching fish! Several throwbacks, and 7 keepers, including one Fish Ohio Walleye!

07/31/17 - Walleye - limit !!!

If it worked yesterday, try it again today! The area northwest of Gull Shoal has been good, why look anywhere else. This is where we started, and where we finished up today. Had a 6 man limit around noon.

#40 Tru-Trips with spoons, 75' to 85' leads still working.

07/30/17 - Great family outing - walleye LIMIT !!!

Ran straight to the area northwest of Gull Shoal / west of Middle Is., landed directly on the walleye!!! Dropped the gear and started pulling in the fish. This family group today was an absolute BLAST to fish with! They learned the technique quickly, and pulled in a full box of walleye!

#40 Tru-Trips with large and small spoons, 75' - 85' leads by far the best.

07/28/17 - Time for PERCHIN' !!!

Strong North wind today creating very tough trolling conditions, so we've opted to go perching instead. Headed up between Green and Rattlesnake Islands for some protection from the weather. This group of 5 anglers boxed 125 perch today! Good size perch, averaging 9-10 inch fish, a few smaller, a few bigger.

Sorry, no photo today! Somehow I didn't even save the map today!

07/26/17 - Pooh Bear Charters - 2 boat - short trip.

Corporate group today just wants a quick taste of the experience, so we've only got a few hours to fish! Fishing was a little slower than it had been lately, which we never like to see on our short days... Pooh Bear got on the fish a little better early, I found a nice pocket in the last 15 minutes! Too little, too late! Final score today: Pooh Bear: 17 Pirate Clipper:11 However, a great time was had by all!!!

#40 Tru-Trips with spoons, had leads from 40' to 105' trying to dial something in!

07/24/17 - Pooh Bear Charters - 5 boat trip

Today we were one of five boats taking Amish builders out, we fished the Candian side in some pretty rough water! Solid 4-6's with the occasional surprise, the guys held up pretty well! We pulled a full limit for our crew today in some fairly nasty conditions! We had to really work through the short fish to get keepers into the box. It was constant action, peeling through fish as fast as you could bring'em in.

#40 Tru-Trips with worm harnesses 55' to 75' leads.

07/23/17 - Trip for Pooh Bear Charters

Ran east today - there is a lot of fish in this area, but the smaller fish are taking over! Cycled through quite a few short fish to put a limit of good eater size fish in the box today. Worked hard for them, but we got'em done!

#40 Tru-Trips back 75' to 95' with worm harnesses.

Sorry, no catch photo today! Click here to view the map.

07/22/17 - Hard work PAYS OFF!!! - Limit catch!

Ran east into the open water east of Cedar Point, still a lot of fish there. Cycling through the smaller fish is becoming the name of the gme this year again....but the FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT! Worked our way through the little ones for another LIMIT catch in the box! Good job crew!!!

NEWS FLASH: Walleye number 1,500 for this season so far went into the cooler today!!!

#40 Tru-Trips, still pulling worm harnesses trying to deter the smaller fish...

07/20/17 - 2 boat trip with Eagle Eye Charters

Today we worked the area west of Gull Shoal again. Still a good number of fish in this area, but a strong number of short fish mixed in. Pulled a mixed box of big fish and eaters for the crew today, ending with 27 walleye and 4 bonus yellow perch.

07/19/17 - Short Afternoon Trip for BigFishTuff !

Picked up our group today at Put-In-Bay, along with a couple bowls of Lobster Bisque! I'm not sure what was better, the fishing, or the Bisque. Headed a little further east towards Middle Is. Found fish still holding in the same general area. Quick afternoon trip - half limit catch! Finished with 18 in only a couple hours.

#40 Tru-Trips 75' - 85' back, worm harnesses.

07/18/17 PM - Afternoon Trip

Quick evening trip today. Worked right up on the Canadian line, northwest of Middle Is. Seeing a few more short fish later in the day. Lots of action, but not as many going in the box! Great fun reeling in fish, just not all keepers. Finished with 9 walleye, 4 nice perch, and 4 monster size white bass.

#40 Tru-Trips pulling worm harnesses 75' +/- back.

Sorry! Too dark for photo! Click here to view the map.

07/18/17 AM - Canadian Trip for Pooh Bear Charters

Started off searching.... we went a little east of Middle Is., should have went west! While we we searching for fish, Bear started catching a few to the west side, so we picked up and ran back that way. We set up in that area, but weren't really pulling many fish. Seems it was a small pocket, so we headed north towards Sheridan. We found more fish up there, lots of shorts mixed in, but at least we stayed busy! Less keepers than shorts! Ended with 15, plus 1 nice yellow perch. We were looking for 30.

#40 Tru-Trips and worm harnesses. Had leads from 50' to 125', but the 75' to 95's were doing the most work.

07/16/17 - We "Schley"'d 'Em !!!

One of my First Mates this year, Stu Schley, is a West Point Cadet, with only one year left before graduation. Today's trip was Stu's father and some family friends. We were looking for 24 walleye. We worked the area west of Gull Shoal, some deeper water, and a few passes right along the rock. Got 'em done and ended with 26 keepers!

#40 Tru-Trips 45' - 55' back with harnesses did most of the catching. We took a couple on Bandits 60' to 75' back.

07/15/17 - I'm not sure where to begin....

I'm gonna sum this day up with a couple lessons:
1. Late nights and bad hangovers won't help you on the boat in the morning.
2. If you don't know how you'll react to boat motion, take Dramamine!
3. If you're kids don't want to go fishing, don't make them!
Quit early with 11 keepers, 5 lost fish. Would have no problem to pull a limit today.

07/06/17 PM - Looking for Perch!

Quick evening trip today, and wow - the fish don't want to cooperate! Made 5 moves looking for perch that would bite, but everywhere we went, lockjaw prevailed. Had fun trying though, and we ended up capturing only 18 yellow perch and 1 walleye.

No catch photo! Click here to view the map.

07/06/17 AM - Walleye limit!

First time family group today, and they got'em all! Needed 30 walleye, finished with 32 plus 1 yellow perch. This group had a great time working the rods, and had no problem figuring out to make it work! Awesome watching the kids learn the program! Fished the open water east of Cedar Point, 36 +/- FOW.

#40 Tru-Trips with worm harnesses, 55' leads were best today.

Click here to view the Catch! Sorry, no map for this trip!

07/03/17 PM - Quick outing!

Back to the same area again, west of Gull Shoal. There are a ton of fish in this area, lots of shorts mixed in with keepers, but enough keepers we're not heading anywhere else! We set up, and let the games begin! Short, short, short, keeper, repeat! Wish we had more time, but the primary sponsor (the one paying the bill...) got stuck in traffic! Delayed our departure by over an hour.. Nonetheless, we had a great time, tons of fishing action, and enjoyed a gorgeous sunset ride back in. 7 keepers in the box turned into a delicious dinner for these guys!

#40 Tru-Trips and worm harnesses are still the go-to bait. Leads 55' to 65' best.

Evening trip - sorry, no photo! Click here to view the map.

07/03/17 AM - Cycle the rods!!!

Headed out to the area west of Gull Shoal. This area is holding an unbelievable number of fish right now! But, just like everywhere else on the lake, we're dealing with lots of short fish. A great sign for our future! A quick lesson on setting the rods, and this group was off and running! We did a lot of catching, with a lot of fish being just under the 15" size limit. We put 17 nice keepers in the box, and dropped a few others that would have made it in also. Like we keep saying, "Wait until next year!!!"

#40 Tru-Trips, harnesses. 55' - 75' leads.

Sorry, no catch photo today. Technological error = no map today.

07/02/17 - Team DeGraff Limits!

Fishing has been a bit challenging the last few days, it seems they're either on fire, or dead, without much in between! Today's crew was an absolute BLAST to fish with, each one having a great time running the rods and reeling in fish! We found a nice pocket of fish willing to bite, some nice size fish, and quite a few shorts. The fish are still taking spoons, which is quick and easy for this first time crew to handle. They put in the work, and were rewarded in the end with a limit of walleye!

#40 Tru-Trips with scorpion spoons. 45' - 65' leads were best.

Click here to view the Catch! Sorry, no map. East of Cedar Point a few miles.

07/01/17 - 2 person Trip for Pooh Bear

Went east of Cedar Point again, with only 2 sponsors, 2 First Mates, plus myself. Fish were biting well today, but still dealing with the short fish mixed in with the keeepers. With 10 rods in the water, it was pretty constant action! Put 27 keepers plus 3 bonus perch in the box!

#40 Tru-Trips and spoons still producing. 35', 45', and 75' leads all catching today.
