    Default 2018 Lake Erie Walleye Forecast

    Saw this forecast saying the fishing should be good this year based on the 2014-15 year classes reaching maturity.

    From what I seen last year I believe it will be good.
    We seen a lot of smaller fish than usual last year.
    Before last year it was unusual to catch smaller eyes.

    I have been getting small eyes for about 3 years now. I have caught them as small as 4" long. Last year was my best year ever, I did throw a lot of small ones back as well as some big ones. I like them from 15 to maybe 20". I had guys asking why I throw back eyes there were about 22", had to say just don't like them, not saying I wouldn't keep bigger if that was all I was getting. I have been told that 2018 supposed to be even better, I can't imagine, but bring it on.

    dutch, you are showing your age there. I also remember those years it was just amazing. Leave house at 7 for 30min ride to ramp, home drinking a beer and cleaning a limit of at least 6lb eyes, before 11. did that every Saturday. Last year could do the same maybe in less time, but the size was no where near it. Fastest limit last year was 40 minutes and that took in the boat ride there and back. Took longer to drive truck to ramp and back than did to catch the fish. Made 2 vertical drifts of maybe 100yds and done.

    My favorite was to troll Erie Dee Rees tipped with a worm soon as you see fish on the screen pop it off the cannon ball and let it fall. Theb real them up.

    The western basin was crazy last year! Several days we had one limit of 16-18 inch fish before we could get four rods set up . Night fishing along the StClair river outside of Sarnia was the same. It seems as the whole system was full of walleye. Can’t wait until spring !!!!
