2010 FishCrazy Charters' Lake Erie Cleveland Fishing Reports
Marks are "SICK"! At times is frustrating when you see them on the screen but no
takers. BERTHA keeps showing up on the screen, but so far she's being just a big
tease, eventually I'll figure out what she want!!!!
There are takers, and some out there are doing quite well at times with multiple
hookups at once.
Fished for the last week with a hand full of people, won't mention name so I don't get
them in trouble. Had some Derby fish come on board, but they didn't last in the money
for long. Most important, it was a blast being out there trying to seduce BERTHA!
Pulled several baits, most consistent so far was the blue/orange bomber signature
series. Speed 1.5- 1.7 mph GPS with slight variations at times. 5 to 30 foot leads with
30' and 10' being the most productive. Fish are scattered from Edgewater to E. 72nd.
You find them in different areas throughout the night.
Enough fish are in that chances for limits are very real. Even though, some very nice
quality fish can be had.

pier from in tight to about 25 FOW. Some fish marked in shallow down to the Pier W.

We found active fish in 20 FOW drop off from the beach to The Flag. Took two
hookups within a 1/4 mile but did not turn back, scoping more areas. 1.5 to 1.8 mph

custom paint. HJ-14 Fire Tiger 10' back off the board.
A few walleye were taken off the rocks at Edgewater/Cleveland this evening! That
would mean that Huron and Lorain should be on also.
As in the Fall. White, pearl color is the choice for now. F-18 are the big fish choice this
time of year!
I sure hope the guys casting will have a good Spring for a change. Everything shows
that it might be! Even the hatch might be quite good with this warm temperatures.
