For the last couple weeks of the season, we are running a crankbait sale. This includes all Bandits, Husky Jerks, Reef Runners, Flicker Minnows, P 10's, and P 20's, in all stock, as well as, custom colors. Oh and we just got some Bomber shallow divers in as well. If you buy any 6 crankbaits, you'll get a 7th. one free! We have quite a selection of good colors still on hand, especially in the Flicker Minnows and Bandits. We hope you'll stop in and take a look!
Good luck to everyone fishing in the Fall ...

This week, perch fishing has been good the past 2 days. H-Can to the west, NW of Green Island and just east of Kelley Island Shoal have been best.
Walleye are still being caught 3-4 miles East of Kelleys Island. Trolling with spoons or worm harnesses in that location has been working best. Weather for Friday and Saturday looking nice with a South wind.
We DO have Emerald Shiners ...   Read more...

Walleye fishing seems to be getting better and better. This past week, lots of limits have been caught in different areas and in different ways. If you want to cast harnesses or erie dearies, Toussaint Reef area or Kelleys Shoal are both producing. Trollers are finding fish about three miles east of Kelleys Is. Also, from cedar point over to the Huron dumping ground. Stinger spoons are producing fish as are the deep diving flicker minnows. Most of the fish now being caught are of legal size. Quite a few of the fish caught are in the 18 to 22 inch size.
As far as the perch bite goes, the perch are running big in most areas. Limits are not being caught on a daily basis like last year at this ...

Walleye: Turned on pretty good this week to the East. Casters and trollers alike are catching approximately 4-5 miles East of Kelleys Island in 42" of water, going South from there to Huron Dumping Ground (located 4 miles out of Huron). Trollers are pulling worm harnesses and spoons. Haven't heard any specific program yet, but walleyes are at various depths. Some bigger fish being caught. Most are in the 15-18" range. Good Eaters!

Perch: Between Rattlesnake and Middle Bass Island and up the middle by Lucys Point and just East of Kelleys Shoal 42 feet of water. Good ...   Read more...

Walleye: If you are casting or dragging a harness or Erie Dearie, try the reefs West of the Bass Islands. You can catch enough to hold your interest. Trollers are still going between Huron and Vermilion, about 5 miles off shore. Trolling harnesses with crawlers working best.
Perch: They're being caught, but never in the same place 2 days in a row. West of Green and Rattlesnake, West Reef, North Bass, southeast of Kelleys off the airport, south of the Casino on Kelleys and LakRead more...

Walleye: West of Bass Islands-Niagara Reef are, West of West Reef, Northwest Reef. All these spots, you catch 50 and keep 5 unless you get lucky and fish in an area where you hit a pod of keepers. If you go East or Northeast of Kelleys, you can troll and catch bigger fish, but most of the time, fewer numbers of fish. Talking to several fishermen coming through the store and hear success with gold casting worm harnesses and trolling harnesses with crawlers. Spoons are still being effective also.
Perch: Fishing the Rattlesnake and Green Island Area. You will average 8-10" perch consistently. I've heard between the 2 Islands but closer to the South side ...
