Lake Erie report 4-26-09
« on: April 27, 2009, 01:49:43 PM »

  Fished the big pong yesterday with RocknFish.We launched out of Mazurik's at around 7:00am,the water color was terrible,and the intense winds even worse.The water was very muddy form East Harbor all the way going east over to Bay Point,and the wind was blowing out of the SSW at a steady 30mph clip all day with gusts hitting 35-40 at times.We headed to our first spot off the NE tip of Kelley's Island locally known as Long Point.The water in this area was a fishable color,and relatively flat.I caught a real nice smallie right off the bat on a 4" Canadian Mist tube,and Aaron hit one right after that on a Dream Tube-both bass went 4lbs. on the nose.We continued fishing in that area a while longer and turned up nothing but a 7lb. walleye that I caught on the same tube,and about a dozen or sheepies.We then took off for the long ride over to South Bass Island to try a couple of our "hotspots",it was a very good choice,although our first area was engulfed in muddy water,which of course produced nothing.We then hit our next destination near Gibraltar Island and scored on the smallies big-time.Again,the water in this little spot was fairly clean,which made a huge difference yesterday.We pretty much pounded the smallies at will in that little spot,we both landed several in the 4-5lb.range.Aaron was flipping around a little shaky-head jig,and I was still cleaning up with the 4"CM tube.We decided to head back to the mainland to play with the green bass for awhile,so after a long,wet and sometimes downright scary trip back,we pulled into the cut at East Harbor.We pretty much got into the largemouth right off the bat,with Aaron pulling in a toad that went over 5lbs.Aaron was tossing a black/blue Strike King Bitsy Jig,and I was casting a Strike King Series 4 crank(sexy shad of course)we prolly caught about a dozen in that general area.Our last destination was fairly close to our starting spot,think it's called Shrock's Marina.Again fishing off the pierheads we got into the bass again with Aaron connecting on a nice 3lb+smallie,and I caught a couple more green bass.That was pretty much the end of the day-the new Ranger performed flawlessly,except for a driver miscue once or twice ::).Whenever I found flat water,I hammered her down and she screamed-awesome.Hitting up a local lake near here tomorrow will make a report then.

 Yes they are,I was going to head on out to Pelee,but considering all of the muddy water that was pretty much everywhere I decided to stay around the islands.I really only fished in 3 general areas,South Bass Island,Kelley's Island and the Ohio mainland mainly in an area from Bay Point over to East Harbor.The smallies are definitely up close,with some bedding,if the water color improves in the next couple of days it will be on bigtime!
