    If you knew a spot that usually held fish, or some kind of structure, sure you could do good casting to them. Specially into the Fall. I have heard about the rocks there in front of SSP being good, another spot that would probably be good would be the mouth of the Rasin River, if that is where the freighters go into just South of SSP. Specially if there is a channel there for the freighters. My guess would be anywhere in that area October into November would be killer after dark. Would probably be best to have a kicker or go with another boat to be safe, ain't like your gonna flag anyone down out there that time of year after dark.

    As far as lures a 1/4 or 3/8 jighead with a white twister is hard to beat. 1/4 if fishing 10 foot of water or less, 3/8 if deeper. XR50's and rattletraps are also very good, along with rapalas, bombers, etc.

    Absolutely was a blast casting F 13 Rapalas both straight body and jointed after dark drifting along the weed beds at the head of Russel Island St Claire River,was best in July,fall might of also been good but dem Ducks were just to appealing! Along the weed beds just South of the LEMP might be worth a try,lol,the perch sure can be thick there.GL

    we use to perch fish a lot at night .we put 2 Coleman lanterns off the transom .they would attract minnows .and walleyes also you could watch the Walleye come up through the schools of minnows we would catch a few walleyes on the perch rigs .if the water was calm we would put the lanterns on inter tubes and float them away from the boat helped keep the bugs away

    Ripsticks behind like 10-20ft back blue Hawaiian blue/chrome and white based colors. Catch them all year night trolling. Those fish move up in the water column especially with any moonlight. We would cast on the reefs but also do just as good trolling. Not just a late and early season thing. Walleye are a night time predator. Just because it's summer they dont stop night time feeding. Fish up high and work your lures deeper. Some nights they are damn near on the surface. Best part is no bugs and as long as you're west of Cleveland little night time fishing pressure! Was even better before the fall brawl. Every tom dick and Harry are so called night time professionals!

    You are right it can get really crowded in the fall.if you are trolling some boats don't have their lights on.if someone notices another boat catch a fish they head right over screw things up.
