Lake Erie Yellow Perch Fishing with Greg and Ryan Faulks 8/26/17

I left the house at 5:15, so I could hit the gas station to fill both the truck and the boat, before hitting up Hi Way bait for some minnows. They had a nice mix of emeralds and goldies that were the perfect size. The pinheads were a little too small for my liking, since the perch showed me yesterday that they were more than willing to munch on the bigger minnows again. If I don't have to use pinheads, I prefer not to, because they get sucked off the hooks to quickly. I met my crew of the father and son duo of Greg and Ryan Faulks (Wisconsin) at Catawba this morning, since they were staying about a mile north of the park on Catawba Island. It was a short ride for them to meet me there. I got there a little early and got the boat ready to go...and, also installed the navigation lights for the ride out. When they arrived, I told them we would wait a few minutes for it to get a little lighter out, and then take a leisurely ride out to the area just west of Gull Island Shoal...they ...

Fishing with Dan, Matt, and Ryan 7/5/17

Fishing with Dan, Matt, and Ryan 7/5/17 By Captain Juls with Juls Walleye Fishing Adventures Dan Bishop and his two sons, Ryan and Matt, are staying at the campground right down the street from me, so they met me in my driveway this morning at 4:30. We headed to Big Bopper's for some breakfast, before hitting Hi Way Bait and Tackle for some ice. I also loaded up on some of the good colors of Skipper 9 perch rigs, since the fella that used to make them has passed away, and I'm too lazy to figure out how he tied them. We launched out of Mazurik's at 6am and headed east of Kelly's for the morning. I had the rods all rigged up with 2oz inline weights with crawler harnesses that I tied up with (1) #4 Octopus Hook, (1) #6 treble hook, (8) 8mm beads, a quick change clevis from DutchFork.com, and some #5 and #6 Colorado blades with copper hammered backs, anti freeze backs, and pink antifreeze backs. We pulled those in 38 foot of water at 40, 45, 47, 51, 57, 65, 75, and 85 back a ...

Fishing with Mike, Trayton, and "Pops" 6/21/17

Fishing with Mike, Trayton, and "Pops" 6/21/17 I left the house at 4:30 this morning, so I could stop and get ice, and gas up, before hitting Mazurik's by 5am. Well, when I was half way through town I realized that I had forgotten my 10 dozen crawlers, sitting on my kitchen table...ugh. I made a quick stop at Hi Way Bait, who open at 5am now...thankfully, and bought 10 more dozen, so I didn't have to drive all the way home to get them. The air conditioning was on, so I figured they would last until I got home to put them back in the fridge. The arrangement was to meet my crew at Mazurik's at 5:30am this morning, but a little after 5am, Mike sent a text saying, "We're at Bopper's if you care to join us". But, since I was already getting the boat ready, I said, "I'm at the ramp getting things ready, take your time and enjoy!" And, continued to get things situated to my liking. Mike sent me another text asking me if they could bring me some breakfast, so I took him up on that off ...

Fishing with the Parker Brothers Randy, Jim, and Dick 6/9/17

Fishing with the Parker Brothers Randy, Jim, and Dick 6/9/17 I arrived at Mazurik's at 5am. The remnants of a full moon lit up the parking lot, pushing away the darkness. My crew was supposed to meet me there at 5:15, but they were early too. Yay! The sky starts getting light enough to see by 5:15 now...and, by 5:30AM it's almost light enough to not need the running lights lit up on the boat. With a 5-10mph SSW wind, we headed north out of Mazurik's to the area between the Bass Islands, Middle Island, and Kelly's Island...to look for a starting point. I set the Ranger down off plane, to take a picture of the sunrise...and, look for good fish marks on the Humminbird. After finding some decent marks, we started to set up. Randy has fished for Bass all his life, and had contacted me a little while ago to set this trip up as a "learning" trip. He wanted to learn how to troll successfully for walleye. He went out and bought a used Ranger 621, and all the trolling equipment he th ...

Fishing wih Ben and Mike

      Posted by http://community.walleye.com member Juls It's been a while since I blogged, so I thought since I had some free time after today's trip, that I would share today's trip with you. I didn't have to meet my crew at Catawba State Park until 6:45, so I made some brownies at 4am....by the way, the house wafting of chocolate is a pleasant way to wake up! I loaded the boat with the perch cooler and other things, and left the house at 5:20. I made a few phone calls looking for shiners, but all I was told that anyone had was Goldies, so I pulled into Hi Way bait for minnows and ice. I grabbed a breakfast sandwich from Big Bopper's and headed down to the ramp a little early....a 1/2 hour to be exact. So, after readying the boat for launching, I sat in the quiet Monday morning park and enjoyed that sandwich. My crew of Ben Welch, and his friend Mike, showed up right on time at 6:45, so we were on the water, and headed out by 7am. Our plan was to start ...
