I fished all of the usual places - in front of Erie Metro, both sides of Celeron Island, Calf Island, and north of Calf. Tried everything, even using "joe dirt's" purple harness rig along the weeds and deeper. All I caught were a bunch of goby's some sheep head and a few small mouth bass. The east side of Gross Isle. had went dead by the time I checked it out; one fishermen said a boat using small silver spinner blades and dragging the bottom without b.b's did real good on walleyes.
I had one last idea and headed out to some water south of Gross Isle; I had not fished this area in a while. After picking up a 21 inch walleye, and then a 19 inch eye in the same area, the wind picked up and made boat control impossible; I also picked up 1/2 dozen perch. I was using a orange/ chartreuse spinner blade with my b.b.'s.

Try some of the further North spots. Pull spinners along Point Hennepin and the surrounding areas too.

All our fish the past two weeks have came along weeds with deep water within 50 yds. Find rocks and humps it's been almost a guarantee every drift.

If I can get down there again, I will try it. Wife comes home from rehab Tues. from having a total hip replacement. Plus she has some other problems. So my recreation activities are going to be limited for a bit.
