Big Water Walleye on Lake Erie with Erie Quest

Postby eriequest » Fri Feb 26, 2010 2:59 pm

Almost as if it were by fate, I got an e-mail from a good mfriend in Indiana Friday afernoon talking about Lake Erie ice fishing with Erie Quest Charters and his plans to go there. Visited the local bait shop got plenty of emerald shiners. Then unloaded the quads, loaded up the gear and headed out for 3-4 mile on the Lake Erie ice.

When Erie Quest is targeting walleyes in the winter on Lake Erie, we know from walleye patterns that they pre-stage near spawning areas...early. On Lake Erie, these areas include the waters surrounding the Reef Complex, Bass Island area, and areas near the Maumee River Basin...these areas are target rich environments for walleyes.

Erie Quest Tip
Lake Erie walleyes are like fish anywhere, they are definitely tuned in to their predominant food source. When ice fishing on Erie...it is very important to obtain the walleye's favorite type of food and offer it up to them. I watched a group struggling on the ice yesterday and then found out that they were not using emeral shiners for bait. Trust me...use emerald shiners boyz and put one on all three hooks of a treble, which is attached to your jigging spoon. It may look odd, but Erie Eyes want a smorgsboard.

We caught over 20 walleyes, with our biggest being 8 pounds. We had 4 or 5 fish between 6-8 pounds. No doubt there were over 10 walleye that "unbuckled" as we were bringing them to the surface...but hey, thats part of fishing on the Big Pond.

On Friday, High Tide (Doug) clebrated his birthday by catching an 11 pound walleye.

A BIG thanx to High Tide (Doug), Randy "Gaft Man", Bret (Super Seal), & John (FISHAHOLIC19) ......what a special day on the Big Pond !
