12/29/12 Steelhead

Happy Holidays and ring in the New Year with some great fishing! Local steelheading has remained good. Water level is staying up and slush hasn't been to bad. Fresh fish are pushing everyday with lots of big fish being caught. Eggs, beads, jigs as well as big streamers are all catching fish. With good water fish are evenly spread threw out are rivers.
 Walleye fishing has slowed but only due to conditions, as lake flattens and cleans look for more great walleye action.
 Picture stolen from Great Lakes Steelhead Co. They have the best bead selection going!

12/19/2012 Steelhead

Recent rains have left rivers high and muddy but with warmer temps as they drop should leave us a fresh batch of chromers. Look for fish to be spread threw out the system and in tributary's from Vermilion to the P.A. border. Look for smaller tribs to fish tomorrow and larger tribs to clear in the next few days. Large jigs have been working well in lower rivers, spawn and swinging streamers have also been producing fish up river. Night walleye are still being caught from Lorain and Huron pier heads. Trollers are taking good fish from Huron to Cleveland trolling Husky Jerks in a variety of colors. The guys fishing the Islands as well as Catawba are also catching fish on Husky Deep divers in JT Custom Tackles ,Pink Lemonade, Happy Hooker, Carter Crazy and Mixed Veg.
 Perch fishing has finally returned to Avon Lake and Lorain, look for fishing 32-35 feet of water. Guys jigging Swedish pimps wile perching have been taking a few trophy walleye as well.

12/14/2012 Steelhead/Night Walleye

With last rain plenty of dime bright chromers made the run. Look for all local creeks and rivers to all be holding fish. Fishing should stay great until the rivers drop to low and clear. Spawn bags have been working in higher water and jigs and flys in green to clean water.

Night walleye has continued from shore and trolling the shore line. Fish seem to be in very tight packs. If you don't hit right away, cover water. Husky Jerks in blue chrome and blue glass have been tops.

Friday, December 7, 2012


Rain is falling and with warm temps good things are happening. Reports of fresh pushes of steelhead are being reported from tributary's from Vermilion to the New York border. Jigs and hardware are working great in the marina and launch areas. Spawn bags and egg patterns have been working in upper river. With week-end rains we can expect to see even more fish push up river.
 Night walleye are still going strong ,Husky Jerks in Blue Glass and Blue Chrome have been this past weeks best.

Monday, December 3, 2012

Rivers are slowly rising and should continue to the next few days with up coming rain. We should see a fresh push and numbers increase. Look for the best bite to be in the warmest part of the day. Jigs , streamers as well as sacs will all be working. 
Night walleye fishing has remained great. Husky Jerks and F18 Rapalas have been best. Congratulations to the Fall Brawl contestants and a awesome finish!

Cold Snap

Lake Erie walleye night bite has been at its best. The 2012 Fall Brawl leader stands at 14.5 caught by Bret Berkey. With weather rolling in only a few nights left to beat that monster. F18 and Husky Jerks trolled or casted along the shoreline have been best.
 With rivers needing a lot more water steelheading can be ruff. With this cold snap look for fish in winter holes and tail outs. Fishing will be best in the warmest part of the day. Spawn ,jigs as well as flies will all take fish if you keep them moving slow and along the bottom.
                    Lets help someone catch they're first steelhead this Holiday season!

Night Bite/Steelhead

Today's rain will slow all but the creeks down the next few days. But as with most high water it will surly bring a run of fresh fish. Reports have been coming from high and low in the river systems. Spawn sacs, jigs as well as fly's have all been working. Fish large baits and large fly's until water clears again.
 Perch fishing has remained slow since Sandy but guys running deep to clean water are reporting very large perch.
 The walleye night bite is in full swing with boaters and pier fisherman both reporting good catches. Husky Jerks again this year seem to be working best, with glass clown and firetiger being top choice. Huron to Cleveland and everywhere in between reporting fish.

Monday, November 5, 2012

Steelhead Hurricane

The past weeks storms have brought high water and good pushes of fresh steel. Fish have been reported in the upper reaches of the rivers. Look for fish to be the most aggressive in the warmest part of the day. Spawn ,jigs, Trickem Beads as well as flies are all taking fish. With week end temperatures warming up we should see things even get better.
 The lake has muddied so look for perch and walleye reports later in the week.

Friday, October 26, 2012

What a Fall!

 What a fall it has turned out to be. The perch fishing has been as good as its been for years. Look for limits in 38'-44' from Lorain to Cleveland. Most have been keeping all 10"plus. No reason to believe that once the lake calms we should see it get even better.
 The walleye fishing has fired up at night off  Vermilion as well as a few fish coming from Cleveland as well. Trolling Husky Jerk deep divers in Pink Lemonade and Fire tiger on 10'-40' leads have been best. Fishermen have been starting in 28' and getting shallower heading into darkness. The last few nights produced good size and good numbers. Alot of big fish have made the Fall Brawl board, great job!
Steelhead fishing should really fire off with this weeks cold and rain. Fish have piled up in river mouths waiting for flow rates to increase. Normally fresh pushes mean you can catch them in numerous ways. Beads ,egg patterns ,spawn as well as jigs will all take fish the next few weeks. Don't worry about what they will eat ,fish conditions, clean water small,dirty water large.
 The shop has a great selection of eggs right now. Hope to see you all soon....................

New Fall Brawl

This week has brought us a new Fall Brawl Leader ,Ron Hudak with a 9.735 toad. Walleye fishing has been tough but guys willing to put in the time are taking some huge fish.
 Rain has started falling so we should see steelhead fishing as a whole get a lot better.
 Perch fishing has been great with Avon Lake being top spot. Limits are expected with fish from 10" up.

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Leaves Have Changed

 The leaves changing have signaled fall is here along with the giant night walleyes. Trolling F-18s and Husky Jerks in 9-21 feet at 1.5-1.9mph have been producing the seasons first. Good Luck to all the Fall Brawl contestants.
 Steelhead fishing has been tough with low water, hopefully with rain in the forecast we will see good pushes from East to West. The shop has plenty of eggs ready for this upcoming season. Riversedge Floats photo contest has just taken off, look for some great fish porn in up coming weeks.
 Perch fishing has remained hot ,with the seasons biggest fish being taken the last few days.

Tuesday, October 9, 2012


Its that time of year again, some are finding sleep hard to come by with steelhead on the brain. Kings have made they're way up the rivers East and West of us. Steelhead and brown trout have started up in P.A. Right here in Ohio we are seeing some solid numbers of steelhead in all the creeks Vermilion to Conneaut. Eggs are available now so don't wait till the supply dries up.
 Perch fishing is as good as it gets here off of Avon Lake look for them in 38' to 45'.
The walleye bite is picking up off Vermilion with harnesses and cranks both working.

Fall Steelhead, Traving Kings,West End Walleye,Perch

 Perch fishing does not get any better. 36'- 42' a good old Lake Erie Shiner is all that's needed to load the freezer.
 Walleye fishing is starting to get back to normal. Look for trophy's from Vermilion to Cedar Point in 16-28'. Reef Runners, Deep Huskies and worm harnesses are all taking fish.
With fall weather patterns the bite can be tuff ,so if you see calm water and a rising barometer , its time to get out there.
 Its that time of year again, silver fish chasers are heading to are sister states. Salmon fishing is in full swing with fresh kings still pushing. Chunk skein fishing in the low rivers is still great. Drifting large flies as well as skein upper river is also still getting fish to bite.
 Steelhead fishing locally is heating up, with every rain bringing up fresh pushes. Jigs as well as bags are working for the guys and girls fishing the marinas. Minnow and egg patterns ,jigs ,spawn are all working in the middle and upper sections of river. Probally the best early season action we have seen in years.

Friday, September 28, 2012

Fall Brawl, Cool Steelhead

With cool nights and some rain we will see fresh pushes of chrome the next few days. Guys are heading East and West to are sister states for king salmon runs and early steel. For those of us not that lucky they're will finally be some steelhead action right here in are back yards. Fish have been already found miles up river but I think staying low will put you on the best numbers. Spawn, jigs as well as many fly patterns will work. Jigs and large minnow patterns are my early season favorite.
 Perch fishing has been at its best the last week with plenty of limits off Avon Lake,Beaver Creek as well as Lorain. You will see limits of all 10" and better!
 With the Fall Brawl approaching don't forget to get signed up. Night walleye will a go with a few sable nights of weather. Daytime shoreline action should heat up with Reef Runners traditionally the best bet.

2012 Youth WaterFowl Tune Up, big success!

A big thanks to everyone that showed up!

Saturday, September 22, 2012

With any luck the rain will keep falling and are rivers will continue to raise. Steelhead have been found in lower rivers from West to East. Fish have been taken on spawn, jigs as well as throwing spoons. Look for rains to really increase numbers of fish.
 Perch fishing has remained great off Avon Lake in 34-38 feet of water. Limits of 10plus inch fish can be taken with a little sorting.
 Walleye fishing remains tuff look for stable weather to really help things get better.

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Steelhead and High Winds

This week has brought us  tuff lake conditions with high winds, big waves and changing barometer. The best perch fishing of the year has been brought to a halt. With a few stable days of weather we all think it will pick up ware it left off.
 The cool temperatures have swept in some early season steelhead action. Fish are slowly making they're way up rivers from East to West. Low river and marinas are offering the best action. Fish are being taken on spoons, spinners, jigs, as well as spawn. More rain will bring better pushes.

Saturday, September 15, 2012

Lake Erie Lobster, Its now perch time!

With cool nights and gorgeous days, perch fishing has been awesome. From Beaver Creek and all points East fishing in 32-42 feet has produced limits of 10"plus perch.
Walleye fishing has remained good for all the guys making thelong trip North to the weather buoy. Reef Runners and worm harnesses ,with pink being the best color. The in-shore bite has picked up but fish remained scattered but limits are possible.
Steelhead fishing has produced a few everyday in the lower rivers. More rain is really needed to get good pushes of fish. Look in East tributary's for best numbers.

Friday, September 7, 2012

Perch Time!

Lake Erie is now serving up awesome yellow perch, look for fish in 36-40 feet scattered from Cleveland to Vermilion. Walleye fishing is also still producing limits of fish. North of the bar is still the best bet but fish are also starting to be taken along the shoreline from Vermilion to Ruggels and Sheffield Lake to the Avon Point. Reef Runners are starting to produce with worms still working.
Steelhead fishing has started and this weekends cool temps and rain should really make it worth wile to get out and wet a line.

Friday, August 31, 2012

End of August

Perch fishing has remained great from Vermilion to Rocky River in 37-41 feet. Emeralds are hard to find so be prepared to fish frozen.
Walleye fishing has also been good at the Vermilion weather buoy. Fish are also being reported to be returning to the shoreline in the Vermilion area. Flicker Shads and husky jerks have been best along shoreline and harnesses are still best bet out deep.
We are also seeing steelhead in are lower tributarys in the early morning and late afternoon. Jigs and sacs have been best so far.
Just a reminder of are kids water fowl tune up is coming fast.

Thursday, August 23, 2012


Walleye fishing North of the bar has remained great. Reef Runners(120+ back) and worm harnesses(35 down) are still best bet. Pinks and oranges have been best.
Perch fishing has been great from Vermilion to Avon Point in 38-40 feet. For this time of year it some of the best perching we have seen in a long time.
Steelhead fishing has started in the lower tribs ,they are low in numbers but there are a few being caught.

Thursday, August 16, 2012

Perch Time

Perch fishing has really picked up with some really nice fish. 37-40 feet just North of Vermilion to Sheffield Lake they are stacked. Walleye fishing is still great just North of the sand bar, worm harnesses and Reef Runner in the middle of the water column is still best bet. They're are a few fish still being taken in the rocks in Vermilion and off Avon Point. Pink has defiantly been the color ,with Pretty Panties, Patrick and Chrome Panties leading the way.

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Walleye Time!

Lorain is showing us why it is one of the best year round fishery's going. August 7 it still as good as ever and showing no signs of slowing down. North of the bar is lights out. Dipsy/ worm harnesses, in lines with harnesses and Reef Runners are all working. Plenty of fish Ohio's in the mix, its defiantly worth fishing for the guys looking for a trophy.

Saturday, August 4, 2012

Summer Walleye At It's Best

Local perch fishing has finally picked up. Look for fish from Beaver Creek to Rocky River in 40-42 feet.
Walleye fishing has continued to be hot. Avon Point and Vermilion rock piles are still producing with fish being taken on spinners pulled just of bottem with pinks, purples and lime green being tops. Lorain continues to be the best spot going. Look for the best numbers North of the sand bar with fish running 30 feet down to the bottem. Purple harnesses have been the best producers with Reef Runners are also taking fish.
Steelhead reports remain slow with most coming from out East in 72 feet of water.

Sunday, July 29, 2012

Here Comes August

Walleye fishing in Lorain is still as good as it gets the long run to the buoy is defiantly worth it. Lots of big fish have showed up the last few days. Worm harnesses in purples and pink with colored backs are taking alot of fish. Reef Runners in green flash as well as pinks are also taking they're share.
Perch fishing is spotty at best with big fish very hard to find,but we should expect things to pick up the next few days.
White bass fishing along the shore has remained good but will be winding down.

Saturday, July 21, 2012

August around corner.

Walleye fishing has remained great North of the bar in Lorain as well as big pockets of fish on the inside.This past week we decided to take a day off from running to the buoy and spent time in 26-41 feet and found fish in nice pockets threw-out. Reef Runner green flash was best with other bare nakeds working almost as good. Harnesses in purple demon, pretty panties as well as Patrick have all been hot.
Steelhead trollers are also hitting fish all the way from Lorain threw Cleveland from the
42 line North. Orange or Pink Silver Streak or Stingers are working great.
***Remember you can't release these fish so only catch what you need***.
Perch fishing is still good from 34-42 feet from Beaver to Avon Point.
Plenty of shiners have shown up the last few days.
White Bass fishing is keeping the guys on shore busy with fish ranging from 10 to 14".

The "Sweet" Spot of Lake Erie Lorain, Ohio
Anglers Insight Marketing Published June 7, 2012The second stop on the AIM Professional Walleye Series will be hosted by the Lorain Port Authority in Loraine, OH. Lorain is located in northeastern Ohio on Lake Erie at the mouth of the Black River, about 30 miles west of Cleveland. Scheduled out of the Black River Landing and Black River Wharf this event will be held from June 28-30, 2012. Loraine is the true 'sweet' spot of Lake Erie for a June tournament. The natural migration of big Lake Erie walleyes is from the primary spawning grounds in the western basin to the vast open water of the eastern basin during the summer.AIM Pro angler Mark Brumbaugh from Arcanum, OH is considered one of America's leading experts on fishing, for walleye on Lake Erie. He considers Ohio's lakes, rivers, reservoirs and state waters of Lake Erie as his home waters. He's had several first place finishes, with his most notables including: Winner of the PWT Championship on Michigan's Saginaw Bay in 1995 and winner of the Lake Erie Walleye Trail Gator Classic right out of Lorain, OH in 2009.Mark notes that, at this time of year these fish should be in the 8 to12 pound class. It will be Lake Erie open water trolling and the bite should be great. The Black River Landing and Black River Wharf have good ramps and there is a big protected harbor. I will be running a Lund 208 GL with a Mercury 300 PRO to handle the big waters of Erie.When asked if this early warmer than normal spring has affected the migration of the walleye to the area, Mark stated that the weather is back to more seasonal now and if it stays that way the fish will be right there. Usually June brings nice weather with south winds. Mark said that the water is deeper and rocky in that part of the lake so it stays cleaner too. Mark's main job is a grain farmer so sometimes it's hard for him to fish the spring events, but he said he would not trade it for anything. Having an understanding wife certainly helps and Mark has been happily married to his wife Terri for 13 years.Mark feels the best techniques will be 'Anything you want to pull---spinners, spoons, and cranks!' Since walleyes are migrating from the western to the eastern basin they should be positioned around the infamous sandbar. Mark explains the sandbar as A big hump in the lake that the fish use as structure. It's 40 plus feet deep to the west and goes down to the deepest parts of the lake to the east.AIM member Keith Kavajecz said 'although this is the first time AIM will be having a tournament out of Lorain, we have fished past events in the summer further east in Cleveland and Dunkirk, but often ended up running back to the west to get to the best fishing; the Lorain takeoff point should put us right in the heart of the best fishing.Keith added, 'Like most Great Lakes tournaments, we will be concentrating on suspended fish. Water temp and visibility will be key factors in positioning the walleyes in the water column. I will be fishing out of my Nitro boat with a 225 Mercury Optimax to handle the waters of Erie. I will also be using my Lowrance HDS units extensively to try to search out the schools of larger walleyes. One nice thing about these units is that I can search at 20 to 25 mph and still see the arcs made by the suspended walleyes. They appear much shorter (since the boat is traveling over them faster), but with the HDS units, big fish still show up with some yellow in the arc (indicating a strong return and a larger fish).'Keith also stated that 'another factor may be the thermocline. Often the active fish will be above this intersection of the cold bottom waters and the warming surface waters. Again the HDS units are great at showing the depth of the thermocline, it shows up as a fuzzy line at a consistent depth. Then by using tools like the Precision Trolling data (which should be available as an IPhone App by June), I can position my baits above the thermocline right in the eating zone.' Keith feels the Co-anglers will get to see a variety of trolling set ups from down riggers and Dipseys to trolling boards and in-line weights. I will mainly be using the Offshore Side Planers to get my baits spread out to the side and reduce spooking of the suspended fish. 'When we have fished this area in the past, I have had to go to using 10lb FireLine to get my deep diving cranks to dive deeper than they do on mono and we'll probably be letting out a ton of line to get down to the fish. I image that I might also have to use Snap Weights (Pro Weights) or Bass Pro Fish Weights, especially if it is a spinner bite instead of a crank bite.'Lorain County is considered to be a part of what is locally referred to as Greater Cleveland. Lorain is sometimes referred to as Steel City mainly because of its well-known steel mill. The City of Lorain originally began as the small village named "Mouth of Black River", named at that time for its exact location on the west side of the mouth of the Black River. The industries such as shipbuilding, steelmaking, and fishing brought people, money and railroads to the area. It's the awesome fishery that's bringing the AIM Anglers to the Lorain area and the potential for record breaking fish weights. 2010 Angler of the Year Robert Blosser will most certainly be there too. Robert caught an impressive weight of 139.46 pounds with only 21 fish the last time he fished a tournament in this area! With AIM's CRR format the sky's the limit on the type of weights that could be recorded so you won't want to miss this event. With simple words that speak volumes to all fishermen who love to fish the waters of Erie, Keith Kavajecz closes by saying--'Big Water and Big Fish--SWEET!'

Erie Outfitters welcomes all AIMs Pros and Non-boaters to town this week. This past weeks fishing has been great. Walleyes are being caught around the edges of the sand bar, edges of the dump, weather buoy ,along rock shore lines as well as small schools scatered from Vermilion to Rocky River. Toxic Pink, Copper Hot Rod as well as Happy Hooker have been great spoons. Pink Lemonaid and Pink Panties have been the best Reef Runners. Harnesses are still king, in anything pink and purple. Look for fish to be suspended 20 to 30 feet down.
Perch fishing really fired up with lots of fish over 10" and everyone taking limits. 37' East of Lorain ,Sheffield Lake and Avon Point have all been firing.

Sunday, June 17, 2012


This weeks fishing has been great. Perch fishing has fired up from Beaver to Avon Lake. 37' to 41' has been the best.
Walleye fishing has remained strong with the deeper you go the better. Worm harnesses are still king with Reef Runners in Red Headed Bare Naked and Pink Panties taking big fish. Look for fish in the top 25 feet of the water. A big thanks to JT Custom for actually making my flicker shad worth running!

Tuesday, June 12, 2012


Walleye fishing has been great this past week. Fish are being found scattered along the shore line, off structures like the Lorain and Rocky River dumps as well as off-shore in 52-54' of water. Purples and pinks seem to be the colors of choice. Silver Steak colors like Pink Panties, JTs Purple Scale as well Reef Runners Purple Barly Nakeds are all great colors. Spoons have finally made a come back this year taking limits this past week.
Perch are back! This week has brought us limits of great size perch in 37' of water just outside Lorain and into Avon Lake.

Walleye Tournament.

With big wind came a big bite from West of Lorain to spots East of Cleveland. With a hot tip from Capt.Frank of Y-KNOT Charters, Monday, I headed just North of the Lorain Light House armed with crawler harnesses. We chose to run willows and Off-shores tadpole weights in size 2 at a little higher speed than we have been. Chartreuse backed blades ant 1.7 to 2.1 ,28 feet back was the ticket. We boated 10 fish including a few big boys but over all a real mix today ,with fish from 2 to 10. For the upcoming tournament we should have a lot to offer and my even see record bags. Here's a copy of AIM's press release.
The Lorain Port Authority will host the second tournament of the 2012 AIM Pro Walleye Series™ schedule out of the Black River Landing and Black River Wharf. The Pro-Am fishing tournament will be held June 28 to 30, 2012. This beautiful area located along the Southern shore of big Lake Erie in Northeast Ohio will provide the perfect backdrop for what should be a very memorable event. Lake Erie is of course famous not only for the vast numbers of walleyes it produces each year for the recreational anglers, but also the enormous amount of walleyes it produces over 10 pounds. Tournament entry fees are $1,200 for each pro and $300 for each co-angler. Pros are competing for one hundred percent of all pro team entries, however that percentage could rise.

Sheffield Lake Giant Walleye!

Sheffield Lake has produced another giant, this 14pound 4 ounce huge was caught in 28' trolling a Green Flash Reef Runner. Over all the walleye fishing has remained good. A limit can be hard to come bye but good catches of 6-8 ponders with a giant mixed in is common. The best catches are coming on pink and purple worm harnesses. Scorpion spoons are also pulling good numbers trolled 18-28 feet down in water 38 to 52 feet of water.
Perch fishing is requiring alittle moving to find active feeders but over all with alittle effort and you can catch a limit in 34-42 feet of water.
A big thanks to the men and women who have served this country!

Monday, May 21, 2012


With stable weather the walleye fishing has been as good as it gets. Fish are being found from Cleveland West in good numbers. Off shore trollers like MY BONNIE charters pictured above are pulling limits trolling Stingers, Reef Runners and Worm Harnesses. Perch fishing has been alittle tuffer this week but all exspectations are it will get better as they finish up spawning. Guys looking for schools off shore in 48-52 feet are still taking good size and numbers.

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Good Luck!

                 Good Luck to all the fisherman fishing the FLW walleye tour today.
 The walleye fishing has remained good from the Western basin all the way threw Cleveland. The night bite has been the focus of the locals lately with the Lake producing trophy fish. Husky Jerks and Bombers are top choice in blue chrome and clown. The day bite is good between 22-32 feet, worm harnesses as well as Reef Runners are working best.
 Perch fishing has been good off of Avon Point and Lorain break wall. 42 feet has been producing nice limits. Looks like a great week end!

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

Night Bite!Day Bite!

From Cleveland West the night walleye bite is firing big time. Husky Jerks in Fire tiger and clown all taking fish. The day bite has also been heating up along any rock shore line. Reef Runners in Citrus Shad as well as Gator bait are both working. 1.4-1.6mph 20-40 back. Look for bait and you will find fish.
 Perch has been great at times and slow the very nice day , I think stable weather will turn them on and keep them biting. 38-42 feet are getting the best reports.
 Crappie and blue gill fishing in all the marinas is also worth the trip specially if the lake is rough.

Good Fishing, Bad Conditions

We are now saying are final good byes to steelhead season! Night bite walleye is now in full swing. Casting Husky Jerks in clown ,blue silver have both been pulling fish. Trolling 700 Reefs and Huskys along pier heads from Vermilion to Cleveland are also smashing large walleye. The day bite is also taking fish running Colorado harnesses and Huskys in the top 10 feet at 1.4-1.6mph. Sheffield Lake has been a early surprise producing fish 16-22 feet. Vermilion and Ruggles area has also been as good as any. Perch fishing has also been good bit with all the areas fishing conditions have been tough and looks like this week end will bring more of the same. Look for next week to be alot better.

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Night Bite!

Night walleye is in full swing ,from Cleveland to Huron. Husky Jerks in clown and purple perch have been good. Leads of 10-25 at 1.2-1.5mph is best bet. The day bite is still going strong with hair jigs on the reefs and trolling deep Huskys and Reefs in the top 10 feet.
Perch fishing is starting to heat up from Lorain to the point in 34-42 foot of water. The bite is still spotty but once you find them its good size fish.
