: Any info on Cleveland walleyes?
06-01-2005, 06:35 AM
Anybody have any info on the day-time fishing off of Cleveland? Was out for a little bit on Saturday before the storm hit. There seemed to be quite a few walleye deep in the crib area, but I was not able to get them going. How about the Bratenahl, Rocky River or East Lake areas which usually heat up around this time of the year?
Any help would be appreciated!

Might be the time of year but go by water tempature instead of a calender. Head west.

There are plenty of walleye to be had right off Cleveland I know from this years experience. Troll Deep Reef Runners 100-150 back. There is a huge school of walleye I am not saying where but it shouldnt be to hard for you to find start in 32 feet of water.

Thanks a lot for the information that there is a big school of walleye off of Cleveland. I'll try to find them although it may be hard as I still have not been able to get my fishfinder (and depth meter!) on my boat to work.

Well if you are off of Cleveland and in 32 feet of water and i would think if they arent there it would mean you would probably move out to deeper water , let me help, go west out of Edgewater about 3 miles......
I dont get it

you left a report that you fished over by the islands this past weekend, yet you say there is a huge school 3 miles west of edgewood? Either someone else told you about the school around edgewater, or you experienced it for yourself? I will be out there on saturday to check out your edgewater report and I will report on what I find there.... Your reputation is on the line here, so if you want to recant the edgewater report do it before friday night....

I did fish the islands this past weekend on Saturday, in regards to the school of fish off Cleveland I didnít say WHEN I was there but I was there last weekend and close fishing buddies where there this past Friday and Saturday and I was there again yesterday. I for one can take what my Erie contacts say as the truth and I know what IS going on not what I think. For the guys who know me the sent me an email for a little insight which they got I am just trying to say to anyone who wants to fish Cleveland donít be discouraged and hit them up. You donít need to go west or east there are fish right here. All I said was I know from experience with no time frame or days mentioned. Register why donít you And my REP is not on the line.

If Kgone says he was out he WAS out.

I said it once and I'll say it again. You're a coward if you do not post your name. For the record, Kgone is strait with his info.

I don't want to get into the other nonsense that has been going on with this post. Just to say thanks for the additional info. Yes, that indeed is what I would have done anyway even though I fished there this past Saturday without much success, but the weather was funny and I may have been a little deep.

Thanks Tommy and Larry and Brian I tried responding to your email and it said it wasnt valid I sent you a message through WC.

i got the email Kevin, thanks

I don't get, I don't get it. First of all I know Kevin and I know where he got his info. From Me. This is exactly why I don't post on here anymore because of morons like you. If you are gonna rely strictly on what you read on here to make your decision on where you fish shows the quality of the fisherman you are. I gotta better source of info for ya call Darcy Egan from The Plain Dealer he will tell you where the fish are.

Launch boat at E.72 ramp. There are plenty of large walleye directly off breakwall that runs from lighthouse towards stadium(west). Evening (8:00pm-1:00am)trolling is only way to box a plethora of these monsters. Don't waste time with monofilament......."fireline" is a must; or else the zebra mussels will saw you off 90% of time causing you to lose fish and cost you 75 bux in lures.......Haha.......
Concentrate on slow-trolling(1.5-2.0 m.p.h.) over abrupt drop offs, ledges,(15-25 feet) is strike zone. If your deep diver ain't tick-tappin' off bottom structure(rocks and ledges)...............u are too deep. Smaller boats work best....so leave yacht and wife in marina. hehe..
Once you get hooked onto mr. or mrs. walleye.............set hooks with authority........cuz losing 10-13 pounders makes the difference between "fishermen" and "wishermen". I've personally only lost a few fish over past 5 years. This is attributed to fireline as line of choice and aggressive hook-sets. Small walleye are rare with most being from 6 to 13 pound range. Keep dipsy's and planer-boards at home; all they do is create "chaos" and put you in position to lose fish and embarrass yourself detangling lines, instead of netting fish. Good luck and Please dont troll behind me........Haha..

I also heard there are perch in Lake Erie and another fish called Steelhead I was told from a top secret source all these fish can be caught in Cleveland Ohio.

i worked the area you speak of K, along w/ a dozen other boats saturday eve. the screen was LIT w/ fish and bait balls. but no takers. tried erie dearies too. after sunset i did manage 2, 8lb eyes.from other reports on here the day bite is slow everywhere. that darn cottonwood stuff is all over the water.

I was out there on Saturday same thing great marks but no takers, I find when the lake is flat and it's really hot out the eyes just don't want to go. we ran 8 lines, big boards with spinner rigs, deep reef runners, and a couple dipsey's nothing seemed to work the fish are there but not biters, had two other similar days a month ago in Port Clinton I hate when the lake was flat. I was out from 12-4 on a friends boat no wind just as we where on our way in it switched to a northeast wind I thought that might have helped but I guess not.
