Erie-area weekend fishing report: Aug. 2, 2019
It is hard to imagine walleye fishing any better. Narrowing this report into sections of the coastline is not necessary. But the makeup of boats now fishing for walleye in our Lake Erie water has been changing.
Anglers in smaller boats, even kayaks and canoes, are catching walleye in water 15 feet-deep to 30 feet-deep during mornings and evenings. Most of the medium size to large boats are concentrating on depths of 40 feet to 60 feet. Both drifters and trollers are catching walleye on any of the popular types of lures, and in just about any color pattern you might find in local tackle shops. Maybe the single hottest lure is the new Bay Rat Spoon. Start fishing right above the thermocline.
