Walleye fishing is getting more consistent on the Detroit River.  The Kubasseks had a chance to fish the La Salle, ON stretch of the Detroit River and had good fishing jigging with 1/2 jighead & 4″ brown plastic worms righ on the bottom.  Due to strong winds this spring, the Detroit River has been turbid and the fishing has been tough.  Water conditions have improved greatly over the last 2-weeks and the fishing is getting better daily.  We will be filming a walleye show there the end of this month out of the La Salle, ON boat launch.  If you are planning a trip to the Detroit River for walleye, the last week in May should be excellent!

My niece Krista Armstrong had a chance to fish with her Dad,  Gord  on the Bay of Quinte this past weekend and really showed her Dad off by catching the nicest walleye.   Well done Krista!!!  Krista is thirteen and as her Dad says, “I taught her well….”.  That figures since Gord has been fishing the Bay of Quinte around Telegraph Narrows most of his life.   If you are planning on heading down to the Bay keep in mind that the trophy walleye (8-12 lb.), are easiest to catch at night either trolling or casting with a Rapala Husky Jerk.  Fishing in and around current areas such as near the mouth of the Trent, Moira, and Napanee Rivers can be very productive (even casting from shore).

Lake Erie Jumbo Perch Update – East End.

Posted on Monday, May 11, 2009
Giant Lake Erie Perch are still feeding heavily in deeper water, but should be making their migration to shallow water in the next week.

While many anglers attention is on the Lake Erie, NY State bass fishing, others have been capitalizing on the consistent jumbo perch action off the Port Colborne to Crystal Beach, ON stretch.  The lager jumbo perch are still in the 55-65′ depths and they are getting ready to move shallower to spawn.  The surface water temperature is around 48F.

Tony Brecknock and I fished about 1/2 mile off the west-side of Point Abino and started looking for the larger perch in 45′ of water.  Baitfish schools were scattered throughout the entire area.  Most of the baitfish schools were located within 20′ of the bottom and there were also suspended schools of baitfish from 20-30′ down.

After moving around and trying 3-different locations, we finally intercepted a large school of jumbo perch in 58-64′ of water.  We used 5/8 oz. bell sinkers with a “pickerel-rig” and #8 bait hooks.  Small, live emerald shiners worked well hooked either just behind the head, or between the dorsal fin and the tail.  Most of the hits were light, and it seemed that the larger the fish, the lighter they hit. 

As everyone knows, we have had very windy weather almost every other day, so making a trip out on Erie is really a gamble.  On our outing, we had excellent water conditions from about 8:30am – 11am, than it got windy and “lumpy”.

Tony Brecknock holds up one of several "double-jumbo perch" hook-ups he had while fishing 60' of water.
