Default Nope, no Walleye to be found in Lake Erie

We checked with our fishing poles last weekend, their are no Walleye, just Freshwater Drum and White Bass.
Just because we suck at Walleye fishing and it is a huge lake is beyond the point.

Went out on Wedn on a headboat out of Port Clinton. It was slow but came back with 5 eyes. Most people who are only catching drums and silver perch, are ones dropping the the lines and "ridding" bottom of the lake. If you cast and keep it above bottom, walleye will come...

We have been catching Walleye consistently on the Canadian side. I have yet to catch anything huge this year (28.5" was the largest) but we always come back with 10-15 fish for a few hours out.

Ok i lied.

Our first of three days on erie, June 21, was spent with Juls fishing out of Catawba near the islands and north of the border. First let me say not only was it the smartest move to fish with her but it was an absolute pleasure as well as an education. The extent of my walleye fishing to date has almost exclusively been jigging. She's opened my eyes and given me confidence in other techniques. Additionally she is very attentive to details and to being organized. Together we did well trolling crawler harnesses. Once we were on our own we did ok too thanks to Juls. We tried some spots she shared with us as well as a couple we explored on our own. She's posted details of our outing in her blog. I'd check it out as that too is very helpful. No doubt she's very knowledgeable as well as confident and subsequently not afraid to share and help out. I wish I could have come up with more questions as she had answers for everything this greenhorn had. I should have asked for a dining recommendation for Port Clinton but there too we happened upon a fantastic meal at at place right on the water at Jefferson and Perry right behind the America's Best Value Inn. Cant remember the name. Really in a word our trip was fantastic. Cant wait to return. Also a strong recommendation goes to the East Harbor state park. I was very impressed there too.

Picked up a 3 man limit on 6/26 about 3 miles due north of where the Black River enters the lake (Lorain). Reef runners and worm harnesses were both catching - the walleye were deeper than the white bass in our case. Most of the fish in that area are of the 18-23" eater sizes but there are still some bigger ones mixed in. We caught several in the 28-30" range the last two trips. It's been a good year so far.....
