When to fish Lake Erie? Lake Erie fishing in 2018 was super. Expect 2019 to be as good or better. We should see some really nice walleyes both in size and quanity. We like to fish Lake Erie once the lake sets up in a summer pattern. We have deep water close to Dunkirk harbor and normally see our best fishing July, August and early September. Weather during this time normally is most stable as our biggest enemy is wind and waves. We do watch weather closely and move trips accordingly. We use a trolling technique with divers, leadcore and downriggers in multiple rod spreads.
For our Lake Erie trips we use a Pro-Line 25 Walk powered by 225 Evinrude ETEC and 9.9 Yamaha kicker, Cannon Downriggers with down temp/speed, Traxstech Rodholders, Lowrance Simrad electronics, and VHF radio. All required USCG safety equipment is on board and boat is fully insured. Boat has a length of over 27 feet and rear deck space of over 60 square feet. Boat went into service in 2008. All tackle is provided.
