Leaving the dock around 8 am for a Lake Erie Walleye Casting Charter, we pointed the Erie Breeze north. The fish in this location are staging and moving east during their migration. This area is a deep water flat adjacent and is adjacent to several reef structures. The location produces some early bug hatches of midges that the Walleye eat and also feed on the forage fish in the area. We started out the morning pretty quickly catching a few nice sized fish but as the morning wore on the wind layed down. This caused the bite for us to shut down. These guys have experienced this before and quickly talked me into trolling. They wanted to fill the cooler, so we switched from their Lake Erie casting charter to trolling.
The trolling switch proved to be an important move for limiting out. I had Alex along as a first mate today. So we needed another 33 fish for the boat limit. We managed a full 8 man limit well before the trip was ended. We used Michigan Stinger spoons and casting gold harnesses. With a few more hours on their trip. The group decided they wanted to cast to finish out their day. The guys spent some time in some shallow water casting weight forward spinners and harnesses while releasing another limit or more of Lake Erie Walleye. Their casting charter was a nice mix of trolling and casting with everyone limiting out and having a great time on Lake Erie.
A Lake Erie Walleye Casting Charter is one of the experiences on Lake Erie that you can ask for but when the wind dies it is important to be versatile. This flexibility has proven to be a smart option on days that clients want to take fish home. I hope you will schedule a trip with me and become a longtime client like these guys did.
