End of August

Perch fishing is getting nothing but better! 34 to 41 feet from Vermilion to Rocky River have been great. Limits of 9plus fish are being taken daily. Walleye fishing has remained good around the Avon Point area. Spinners and Reef Runners are both working well. The Vermilion buoy is still the place to be for walleye. Running Reef Runners deep is top bet. Fish reports from the 30 to 40 feet are starting to come in as well. With the cool nights and salmon running, steelheaders are starting to break out there rods and starting to plan trips. It wont be long now .a few cool rains and it will be time to start looking. Long time Steelheader Ed Novak has just released a new book ,Meet Me At The Net, about steelhead alley. Its not a how to, but a book of tails and adventures that if you fished the alley you can relate to. Check it out.

End August

Lake Erie has blessed us with another great week of fishing. The Vermilion weather buoy has remained the most consistent hot spot but reports are coming in from all over. The recent shiner hatch has brought fish on shore as well. Beaver to Avon Point in 24-34 feet have also fired up. Reef Runner and worm harnesses have been the best bet. Running baits with in 10' of bottem are taking the most fish. Perch fishing has been great in 34-41 feet, Beaver ,Lorain, Sheffield Lake as well Avon Lake are all taking limits. Looks like another great week ahead as weather cools abit.

Aug week 2

The wind has finally laid off and the Lake looks great. Thursday afternoon was a good bite for shallow walleye. Spinners and reefs in pinks and purples are still working. Guys running out to the North side of the bar are finding good numbers of fish. The shallow reef bite is still on but very early morning or late afternoons are proving the best times. Perch reports are starting to trickle in, but the guys that dont know any better are letting the lack of shiners ruin they're day. The guys that are using frozen are still producing limits in 34-38 feet. Rough water and full moon will keep most from getting shiners the next few days. Size of perch is still mainly in the 7" to 10"with a few bigger fish mixed in. Steelhead are still north of the boarder but should return in the next few weeks.

This week has brought us great perch fishing from Beaver Creek to Avon point in 34' to 41'. Shiners are in good supply and the size of perch are getting better in compared to weeks past. The shore line walleye fishing has stayed good in the early morning late afternoon. Reef Runners iin Pink Squarrel and Pink Panties Bare Naked are a good bet. The guys running out to the Vermilion weather bouy are doing the best with harnesses in Egg and Pink Panties. The bouy bite has remained great and is showing no sign of slowing down.
