What a Great day to kick off the Fishing Dreby there was lots of boats out fishing. The boats that went West said the fish were out a little deeper 55-60ft of water and a couple more miles up the Lake. They were running dipsy back 130ft on 3 setting green and copper was working well. (moldy muffin) Some boats went East to the Point of Pins and fished the white stake and done well, a good mixed bad. The walleyes were hitting Bomber, Thunder stikes and Walleye Divers back 150ft of the planner boards. The Steelhead were hitting dipsys back 115ft on a 2 setting and the riggers down around the 30ft range. Orange and copper spoons for the steelhead.
Looks like the walleye are even closer, we fish in 45ft to 50ft of water off the Rifle Range middle two 12-00 last night and took 29 of them. Which is 230 degs out of the harbour about 5miles, not vary far. Planner boards worked the best for us last night, running body baits down around the 30ft make, which was 180ft back, and the best colour was green and orange belly. Talked to and other boat yesterday that took 6 steelhead South of the harbour in 65ft of water, go figure orange was the best colour for them. Come on out, it is going to be a great weekend for the start of the 34th annual fishing derby, and Erieau Marinas 18th annual open house.You can also stop at the ship store and get your ticket, coffee and the hot lures. Taylor’s Fisheries is here on the 28th and 29th from 11am to 7pm with the fish and chip truck, it is awsome perch.

Hey they found the fish today!!!! Boats were catching lots (limits) of walleyes and few steelhead today. They were fishing just alittle West of Dealtown middle two numbers 13-09. You can start in 45ft of water and troll out to 70ft. They were running dipsys on a 3 setting 100ft back and the hot spoon was brown trout. For thr rigggers 28ft down seem to be the majic number, and off the planner boards, long a bombers and walley drives, any body bait that will drive to 20 will work back 150ft.
