2 slow days and one great Erie day

Recommended Posts

Friday was a high pressure cold front with only 5 largemouth, biggest being 1.5#. Saturday was windy rainy and shutdown. Sunday bright skies and low pressure and warming water all day got the bait up on the flats and once I found them the bite got better all day. 36 total, my wife caught 6 and I caught 29 all over 2# and several over 3#.
Erie is always in control but some days she gives up her bounty.

Did he stay at Follys end? I think I talked to him, the only lures he talked about was lucky craft.

I don't think so.  He's a big Vision 110 fan.

Good luck out there. All the reports I have heard indicate a change in the fishery from previous good years. Last year & this year so far seem to have the numbers but drastic reduction in quality fish over 5 lbs. Six lbers have been rare which was not the case previously.

Absolutely... Always a good feeling to know that one of the best places in the country to fish is just 10 mins away...

It almost makes up the pain associated with being a Bills fan. :(

We didn't get to leave on Friday as the wife had a late appointment at work and didn't get home til 9.  Left early on Saturday and just used it to open up camp and relax.  Got out Sunday for a few hours and it really sucked.  I got one on a spybait, the wife got one on a tube and I got 2 drum on a Vision 110 and 3 rock bass and a goby on a dropshot.  When pulling the boat out, the rear brake line blew out on my Tahoe.  No fishing on Monday cause the rental didn't have a hitch!

Leaving from NC next sat the 11th. Its all i can think about while im at work. lol

 

Good luck to all of yall fishing. I managed to catch close to 30 smallies in a river in E. Tennessee on Monday. Up to 3lbs. The bite was on most all day. Really hoping to catch a 5 plus at Erie! That opportunity doesn't exist in the south for smallies.
