It’s prime time for walleye in Lake Erie

While summer fishing is heating up across the region, walleye fishing is hitting its stride in Pennsylvania waters of Lake Erie, according to reports from multiple regional tackle shops.

“There is a large amount of walleye in the 40- to 50-foot range on the west side,” stated Jake at FishUSA. “Although you must weed through a lot of 15- to 16-inch fish, there are some good size fish in the mix. Jet divers with little spoons and deep diving plugs run 120 to 150 feet back with no weight or with one ounce of weight have been my choice of techniques. Flicker Minnows and Bomber 24As are crushing the walleye this year, along with small spoons like the Dreamweaver WD and Silver Streak Mini Spoon.”

Brittany at Poor Richard’s said some customers were doing very well with walleye on purple-blade worm harnesses in 35 to 45 feet straight out of Walnut Creek.

Perch Pirate clients enjoyed good success on both walleye and perch while drifting in 30 to 40 feet from the edge of the Dump to Presque Isle Lighthouse.
