Lake Erie Islands Fishing Report

May 10th, 2018
Walleye fishing in the area, compared to a week ago, has gone more and more to worms and spinners. The jig bite has been going by the wayside this past week, and crawler harnesses, whether bottom bouncing with them or casting them, have taken off. The bite north of Mouse and off American Eagle Shoal is still decent early in the morning and late in the day. However, the fish in that area have thinned out. There are still fish near F and G can. The water there has gotten dirty... not a lot of visibility. There are fish up the middle east of Starve and Middle Bass if you are bottom bouncing or casting also. 
Trollers are having decent luck catching fish off the edges of Mouse Island reef, ...

Hey, it's beautiful outside. Raining, blowing, and great weather, if you're a duck. I'm here to tell you that if you like going out and catching nice, perfect sized walleyes to eat, now is the time. We've got a lot of charter captains coming through in the mornings, and most are smiling. Then I see them stopping back 4 or 5 hrs. later and limits were caught. That's a good thing for everyone. Again, these are 16 to 18" walleyes for the most part. But delicious! The jig bite right out front from Mouse Is. (Scott Point Shoal and American Eagle Shoal) has been excellent early in the morning. As this past weeks weather has heated up, the casters have begun using worms. ...   Read more...

Jig fishing is on fire this morning on the reefs and right out front of West Harbor. Charters back to the dock with limits by 7:30 this morning! There was a good trolling bite yesterday off Lucy's Point (East side of Middle Bass), in the afternoon using Bandits. Just a reminder if you're fishing tomorrow (Saturday), it's week 2 for our ("Saturday Biggest Walleye Contest"). Bring your biggest walleye caught tomorrow to us before 7:00 p.m. to be weighed. Biggest by weight wins $200 cash! No entry fee, no signing up. All are welcome! Good Luck everybody!   Read more...

Just a little shout out to you folks that are planning on coming here in the next couple months and are planning to walleye fish with night crawlers. We carry top quality nightcrawlers and they are sold in flats (500 worms), a bucket (15 dozen), or by the individual dozen. Many out of state folks purchase the flats. We ALWAYS have them on hand. We also pack them in bedding on request. If you are planning a trip here, we welcome you to call ahead and place an order if you would like them in bedding. We normally keep them in black peat. It's dirty but it keeps them fat because it's loaded with nutrients. Our prices are always competitive and we will gladly do what we can to accommodate you with ...   Read more...

FINALLY, a break in the weather. The lake is a tad muddy in the western basin. BUT each day from here on out should improve the lake clarity. Hopefully, the jig bite will improve each day. Purple, John Deere Green and Blue have been the best jig colors. I still believe in tipping jigs with a live shiner. No one can ever tell me it's not a plus, but an extra incentive, especially in muddy water. Prior to the big winds last weekend and the beginning of this past week, the jig bite had really turned on. A lot of nice sized males were caught. Going out of Catawba, Toussaint, Round and Niagara Reefs were all producing. There was one day where everyone was catching. No one was moving around or running ...   Read more...

Jig fishing on the reefs for the past 3 days has been on fire. Many limits in short periods of time. If you're planning on fishing tomorrow (Saturday), you may want to plan it early. Very little wind early morning but then it's going to turn NE and blow strong. Sunday is going to be just the opposite. It's going to blow strong in the morning and die down in the afternoon.   Read more...

Wind, Wind, Wind...Will it ever end? We've been open for 6 weeks now and every day, it amazes me how many hardy fishermen insist on going out in our lousy weather. If you are fortunate to fish today, you should have some luck. The jig bite has picked up in the past few days, even with the water temp still hovering in the upper 30's. Toussaint Reef has been one of the better reefs to jig. Some are using shiners on the jigs, some aren't. You have to believe that live bait would be a plus in this stained water. This is coming from someone who sells live bait, however, but we believe any extra incentive in dirty water can only be a plus. The trolling bite has been up and down. For the ...   Read more...

Wanted to clear up some false rumors and information that's been going around on several sites on the internet about our business. WE ARE NOT CLOSED. WE HAVE NOT SOLD. WE ARE still here, well stocked, and open everyday for the 2018 fishing season! Now we just need this lousy weather to turn around for everybody! Currently, we are open 6 a.m.-4 p.m. everyday. Hours will increase as the weather improves.   Read more...
