Lake Erie Walleye Fishing

The Best Equipment for Walleye Fishing in Lake Erie

The walleye or Stizostedion vitreum, as it is also known, can be found in many lakes throughout the mid-west. From reservoirs to small lakes to large expanses of water. Lake Erie is a particularly favorite among many anglers, as it boasts a plentiful supply of walleye. In fact, Lake Erie is affectionately known as the Walleye Capital of the World, due to the immense numbers of fish that are caught by anglers each and every year.

Because Lake Erie has comparatively shallow waters, it is the perfect environment for walleye to breed and flourish. Many anglers find particular success during the months of spring, when the walleye go on their annual spawning run. This makes for prime fishing conditions at Lake Erie. This year has been another successful one for walleye reproduction, which is good news for walleye enthusiasts, as supplies are in no danger of diminishing.

Many anglers recommend a spinner as a useful tool in the pursuit of walleyes. A spinner harness used with a bottom bouncer can be extremely beneficial when used in Great Lakes, such as Lake Erie. A bottom bouncer is considered a versatile method, as it can be used to fish behind and even below the boat. In addition, bottom bouncers allow an angler to scour the contours of the river, or lake, bed.

The principle advantage of a spinner is that it offers superior freedom of speed. In other words, it allows the angler to fish at half a mile per hour or as quickly as two miles per hour. Spinners are also an advantage in that they are equally functional in catching both placid and those feisty walleye that may put up a fight.

When using a spinner at the slower speeds, it is advisable to use cupped blades and a metal clevis rather than a plastic quick clip. Many anglers favor smaller blades when fishing at slower speeds, as they provide better ease of movement. However, in faster speeds a long willow leaf blade will handle better.

In addition, you may like to consider fastening the snell with heavier lines, as they are less likely to become entangled in high speed fishing. Generally, it is agreed that ball barrel swivels of a superior quality should be employed to reduced any line twisting or tangling.

The most popular bait among Lake Erie anglers is the night crawler. However, there are other options that you may like to try including leeches and minnows. Leeches are effective at low speeds, but may not cope with fast movement as well as the night crawler does. When using leeches, be sure to hook the narrow end, which will prevent unnecessary spinning or twisting of the bait.

Similarly when hooking minnows, it is advisable to place the hook through the head of the minnow, so it is less likely to spin at high speeds. Of course, if the bait spins you are much less likely to get a bite. Sturdy lines will also help to reduce spinning and greatly increase your chances of catching walleye in Lake Erie.
