No doubt someone will respond here, but if you want up to date info I would check out OGF.

I will be out there this Sat too, I will be fishing out of Lampe Marina (Presque Isle). Hopefully this report can be of some help to you. We fished a tournament 2 weeks ago here in PA waters (We fished out of Lampe, some fished out Walnut).

3 of us fished for 3 days for the annual EPSFA event. We did ok-took 13th place out of 33 boats. It was a tough pick at times for us.

We got 11 fish Friday, 8 on Saturday, and 9 on Sunday. No hogs for us, our average fish was around 5.5 lbs for the tourney.


We ran both East and West of the point and started in 75fow and worked out until 95 fow. Majority of our fish were caught either on meat/harnesses or Renosky stick baits. All but a few fish were taken on big dipseys, the boards just weren't producing for us. We did get a few on 40 jets way back off the boards-350' back, but that was about it.

We marked and caught some fish higher up in the water column down around 35ft down, but most of the fish that we pulled were down between 50-60ft.

It seemed like all the big limits came out near the Canadian/PA line in probably 110fow-115fow. I didn't feel like making the 16 mile run in my small boat for fear the weather might turn nasty.

I can't say what the hot program over towards the trenches was, but the above report is what we found. Talking with alot of the captains and fisherman, it seemed the best bait was harnesses and meat.

Hope that helps...If you decide to venture East on Sat look around for the older Red 19ft Ranger or give me a shout on the vhf channel 68. My handle is Eye Ranger.

Not Bad...Fished from sunrise till about 9:30 am in the 2nd trench. Boated 3 lost a couple. Nice size fish 8, 6 and a 3 pounder. Then we headed into the bay for some bass fishing. That was a bust. Caught the 2 big walleye on watermellon double willow leaf crawler rigs on dipseys down about 50ft in 60-70 fow and the smaller one on a barely naked RR back 200ft with 3oz snap weight. Lots of fish on the finder. Heard others talking about the size of the walleyes. Everyone seemed to be catching hogs saturday. Thanks for the tips everyone.

Default Report 8/20

We got a late start, but my g/f and I fished the lake from 8 till 1. We caught 5 walleyes (4-8lbs), and 2 steelhead. My g/f got her first ever Lake steelhead, and I got my personal best steelhead to boot.

We didn't get measurements on the big hoss, but I'm thinking it was 33-34 inches and 12+ lbs. We didn't even bother with the big boards, we fished 4 dipsey lines all day. We had out best success between 98-104 ft straight north of the point.

Renosky chattersticks accounted for 3 eyes and 1 steel, harnesses & meat took 2 eyes, and stinger spoon took 1 eye and the big steelhead.

Here's a couple shots of the 2 chromers we got that day.
