That is a great tail gate picture
Lots of fun catching and eating
I am envious I won’t be going up this year
Jake are you still doing a weekend of shooting fish up there also?

No . I've kinda gotten away from bowfishing. It was alot of fun while it lasted but after getting to go alot of different places shooting carp in Ohio got old . Add to that the lack of boat ramps near Wooster and a boy who doesn't understand sleeping in and I just got out of it . Sold the boat a few yrs ago and walleye fish now

The shoot still goes on but I'm not involved anymore

It's crazy how good it is up there right now . My boat followed me to work today and I hope to be launching at Wildwood about 430 today . Gonna be bumpy but I think we'll be ok .

Our weekend was similar to yours . Quick limits . Saturday we trolled ( my wife was setting Dipsys in no time ) and Kai and Jess reeled in all the fish .

Sunday me and 3 buddies casted . We caught over 70 and managed to keep a 4 man limit of really nice fish . Kept a few deep hooked 17" fish but most were 20 and the biggest was 28" . Lots of fun on med spinning rod .

It was very sloppy out there last night, but we limited out with four of us in just over 2 hours. One of my daughters was blowing chunks over the side and her BF told her to suck it up that we only had 3 more fish to go. My wife and I were cracking up.

Too much stuff to do on Saturday. It was hot Sunday morning and no breeze, we put a 4 man limit in the boat in about 4 hours. Fish seem to be scattered and you have to work a little harder. Last Sunday there was a nice chop early, and we were able to cast weight forwards. My wife and I got out for the first time by ourselves and had a good time. We ran from Edgewater to out in front of E. 72nd and caught well over 30 walleye and only a few trash fish.

We’ve always struggled on Erie with no chop on the lake, 1’ or less has always been killer up there....
This year for quite a few years the walleye guys were on the break walls casting for them that I can remember in any numbers....

Used to love it being flat when I was fishing bass tournaments on Erie. you could sit on top of structure with your graph and drop a tube on their heads. Also, the run from Sandusky to Avon Point and Lorain wasn't so bad. Except for the big boat wakes sometimes LOL

We always dropped a marker buoy on the spot and just kept on it with the trolling motor... But a flat lake was death too the bite lol
Those biting knats were bad on those days also lol

It was a good time! We've been going up every couple weeks Only the third trip this year and It looks like we will miss our next window of opportunity----- cause we are gonna try to run over to Chataqua to fish with my parents a few days the first week of August. :). Summer is too short!
