  • Walleye, Pike, Pickerel

    Seasons open this Saturday. Walleyes have spread throughout one of my favorite little small rivers; last year I was catching 18-20 inchers even up near the source where it's basically just a riffly little creek. That's probably not so great for the trout population but I don't mind eating walleyes.

    Three or four good crappie-pickerel ponds up that same valley. Anybody catching anything good lately?

    State publications forecast walleye fishing in Lake Erie to be super great for the next several years. They drag a net over 2 hectors and count the fish. Normal to have 30 to 50 fish. They are counting 280 walleye. Anybody interested, go to Port Clinton, Ohio and go out on a head boat. Inexpensive way to get some good walleye action.

      As I recall in the past few years, there has been strict advisories against eating fish from Lake Erie more than twice a month. And pregnant women not al all. If this has changed, maybe someone can update that situation !

        Been catching a bunch of stuff right now fishing is at its best for about everything right now. As soon as it warms up here at the end of the month it will start to slow. Pike and Muskie are very active right now. Some lakes stay open to walleye and some waters close. Right now the ones that are open get a lot of pressure for walleye fishing right now.

          I'm lucky to have the walleyes in the rivers, since I don't own a boat, and also since most guys around here don't think of rivers for walleye. I'm fairly close to a couple of lakes that are well-known for walleye. We don't have any great pike fishing in the area, but I actually like just shore-casting for pickerel, and once in a while I even keep a big one. They're not bad eating at all, especially ground up for patties with pickle and onion.

            Not sure what a boat gotta do with it lol. I have one and barely use it cause every time I’m in it I never catch anything. Most of my fishing now is on bank since it’s cold enough the fish come closer making it very easy to catch some this time of year. I believe in water temps and if you can follow the temp then you can follow the runs. Next week I’ll be out for musky.
