Our good friend Pat Pagano was out yesterday walleye fishing at the mouth of the Detroit River in Lake Erie fishing bottom bouncers and worm harnesses in water between 15-18′ deep. Pat’s guest Dain Meyer had a great time catching walleye.
Lake Erie walleye feed heavily in the western basin throughout the summer cruising in and around the subtle structure near the mouth of the Detroit River.
One of the keys is to troll harnesses within 2′ of the bottom at speeds of 1-2 mph. Bright yellow or chartreuse single blades usually work best.
Winds can be a major factor to access key walleye holding areas on Lake Erie. Walleye anglers looking to catch these tasty fish should take advantage of any clam day and get on the water!
