Kingsville, Leamington Pelee Fishing Reports November 2009
Not a lot to report. Fishing slowed right down in this area. Probably perch to be caught but weather noe presents some challenges.
Some blurbs from the net!
Walleye: There were very few walleye fishing reports from the western basin over the past week. Migratory walleye will return to the Kelleys and Bass Islands area as water temperatures drop. Expect fishing to improve in historical fall walleye areas within the next few weeks.
Yellow perch fishing remains good with the size of fish mostly from 7 to 8” with a few up to 12”. The best areas have been the gravel pit W of West Sister Island, the Toledo water intake, around Niagara Reef, W of Green Island and Rattlesnake Island, Kelleys Island, around the Catawba green can, and off of Cedar Point. Perch spreaders or crappie rigs with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
BEST BIG FISHING ANYTIME
Captured 29 big walleye today. Fished north northwest of Vermilion about 6 to 7 nautical miles. Used 50′ jets back 40′ to 50′ pulling Rip Sticks. What a great time for big trophy fish.
Captured 35 big walleye. Ran over them on the way out. Had 3 fish at 11:30 am. Moved south back into the stained water and caught our fish. Was around 7 nautical miles north northwest of Vermilion. Used 50′ jets back 45′ to 60′ pulling ripsticks. Texas Red was a good color.

Fishing remains spotty – rainbows east of Point Pelee are still tough but the next spell of hot water may give us a shot at some good fishing yet. Some rainbows being boated down near the western wind turbines. Walleyes appear a bit tough also with on and off days. Reports of some decent walleye catches down by Kingsville Harbor in 32-35 feet of water. Reports of some great perch catches just east of Wheatley harbor very shallow and close to shore near the provincial park.

Fishing has been very spotty with the weather conditions. Walleye fishing out of Sturgeon Creek and along Point Pelee is relatively good but Pelee Island has slowed up.
Rainbow fishing out of Wheatley has been tough but the last few days have improved. Locations include deep water 63-65 feet, the windmills very recently and SE of Wheatley harbor 4-5 miles.
I don’t have August solunar table info put together yet. If anybody really wants info for a particular time just email me at email@example.com and I will help you out.

Fishing still seems a bit spotty. Last weekend (July 11-12) walleye fishing was great out off the north end of Pelee Island. There has been some good walleye fishing along the shore of Point Pelee in 32-33 feet of water (this week). The rainbow fishing east of Point Pelee is really sporadic. I expected this to be a great week for fishing. (solunar tables of course) but the weather seems to be fouling up my hopes and expectations. This should be the top period of the month but the weather has not been real stable for last 2 days and the next 3 days don’t sound great for weather either.

Walleye Fishing Leamington July 1
Fishing was very tough July 1. I did catch 5 walleye, lots of giant silver bass and many sheephead. The going was tough though. I marked hordes of nice fish on my fishfinder about 5 miles south of Sturgeon Creek. They were very low in the water and reluctant to take bait. I noticed them rise up to 24-27 feet off the 35 foot bottom for a while and activity picked up a bit.
I was using planer boards (I prefer full size models), dipsey divers (3 different sizes) and a variety of spoons trailing rubber worms.
The mini dipsey with 150 feet of line and on the outside position of the planer board caught 3 walleye. These high walleye often won’t mark on your fishfinder because the boat noise actually scares them away from the viewing area of your fishfinder transducer. Those fish would have been down about 15 feet deep in the water.
I lost a couple of big fish through poor hookups or “user error”
Tight Lines and Stay Tuned – I see good things coming.

Fishing Report Erie July1
Good news for some – Numbers of walleyes and rainbow being caught east of Wheatley down by the windmills.
Going fishing myself right now out of Leamington. Things have been slow there and weather is poor so don’t know what to expect but will get first hand information anyway.
