April Jig Fishing on Sweet Escape Charters

School spring break yields 4 great days of walleye fishing aboard Sweet Escape Charters.

April 17 - Took a limit of 12 walleye jigging on Touissant Reef. The bite was really slow due to a cold front that went through earlier in the week, but we managed to get it done with some perseverance. All walleye were captured on purple hair jig without minnows.

April 18 - Took another limit of 12 walleye jigging.  The day started on Touissant Reef before the boat traffic slowed the bite.  We moved out to Niagara Reef and captured are remaining walleye. Again, all walleye were caught on purple hair jigs in 19 feet of water. Numerous other walleye were caught after limiting rather early in the morning.

April 19 - Trip was cancelled due to unfishable water due to a brisk northeast wind. We did manage to get out later in the afternoon after the winds let up doing some fun fishing with other captains and members from the camp ground. Left the dock around 3:00 p.m. and took our limit of 20 walleye finishing around 6:00 p.m.  Started jigging on Cone Reef only capturing a few walleye before heading to Niagara Reef to finishe the day. Walleye were caught on a variety of hair jig colors.

April 20 - Back on the water again aboard Sweet Escape Charters heading to Niagara Reef for another awesome day of jig fishing. Action was really good with most fish coming in the deeper water on the northeast corner of the reef by the grren can in 23-26 feet of water. A limit of 24 walleye were caught using hair jigs without minnows.  

April 26 - Another good weekend of Lake Erie walleye fishing. Only heading out on weekends now until school lets out. Had a group of 6 on Saturday and the fishing was pretty tough all over the lake. We managed to capture 19 walleye working south east of K-can in early morning and moving to Touissant Reef to finish the day. Mother nature is not cooperating with us this spring. We need some southwest winds and some warmer temperatures to move in. It appears that many female walleye have finished spawning as trollers are taking some very nice walleye using huskie jerks and reef runners. The walleye may be moving into the transitional period after the spawn. We did managed to capture a few sheepshead jigging over the weekend.


April 27 - Fished Touissant Reef and caught the 12 walleye needed for a limit. It was another day of northeast wind, muddy water, and waves. Mother nature! Please give us some warmer temperatures and a stable weather pattern. Probably will need to begin switching from jigging to crawler harnesses and/or trolling very soon. Hope the casting bite hangs on for some time and we can keep the trolling gear in the cabin.

If you would like a chance to be a part of the hot walleye charter action on Sweet Escape Charters, give us a call (419) 563-6439 and book your charter.

Walleye Charters on Lake Erie | Lake Erie Fishing Charters | Sweet Escape Charters

Fishing was great this Memorial Day weekend aboard Sweet Escape Charters.  On Saturday, we captured 42 walleye trolling southwest of D-Can using scorpion stinger spoons on 40-50 ft leads.  Day started off slow but ended with a bang.

On Sunday, we had a short crew of 4 guys and myself.  We got our limit of 30 walleye caught trolling with scorpion stinger spoons on 40-55 ft leads.  Started the morning off in the same location as Saturday but could not get them to bite.  Head a little nortwest of the area towards Flatrock Reef and got into some very nice fish.  No pic of the limit but most of the walleye caught were around a 5lb average like the one Johnny has here.

On Sunday, the same group managed to capture another limit trolling northeast of Niagara Reef in 30 feet of water.  Had to move the leads a little deeper to 60-75 ft leads.  Finished the day around 11:30 a.m.  Johnny and Spider wanted to pose with some awesome Sweet Escape Charters attire and show the great time they had catching some great walleye.

Lake Erie Walleye Fishing Charters - Sweet Escape Charters

Well the spring has been anything but normal.  We have struggled to catch limits of fish so far this spring.  I think mother nature has contributed to most of this disappointment.  We have still managed to catch walleye but it has been work and nothing has came fast.  Customers will be happy that they are getting their 8 hours of fishing but upset that limit catches are not being produced.  Hopefully the walleye get out of their closed mouth syndrome and begin biting.  For the customers sake bring your fishing shoes and all the tactics that you got.  We will need to work hard capture what we can.  The fish that are being caught are very nice walleye ranging anywhere from 16" to 30". 

Here are some catches mid from mid April thru first weekend in May.

Walleye Fishing: Charters on Lake Erie

Well, I checked out the satellite image of Lake Erie today and the ice looks to be gone.  Lake Erie walleye fishing shouldn't be to far away now.  Reports from the Maumee River are reporting a few walleye being caught.  With the ice gone, the water should begin to warm up and walleye should begin their journey up the river to begin spawning.  Hope mother nature cooperates with the weather and temperatures begin to get back to normal ranges for this time of year.  Sweet Escape Charters will not be long behind the tracking of the walleye on Lake Erie and start jig fishing if mother nature cooperates.  Sweet Escape Charters will be posting fishing reports of jig fishing trips running out of Wild Wings Marina during the jig bite.

Lake Erie Walleye Charter Fishing has great days and fishing opportunities available aboard Sweet Escape Charters to take part in the fun and exciting action of jig fishing.  Give us a call and book your trip today so you don't miss out on all the fun.  We have lodging available and great rates.  Call Now! 419-563-6439.

Walleye Fishing Around the Corner

Jigging for those walleye is quickly approaching.  Made a trip to the Lake the other day and the Lake had a lot of open water.  Marinas are still frozen but shouldn't be very long and they will be open.  Hope the weather breaks and temperatures begin to stay above freezing.  Spring is only a few weeks away and time change is next weekend.  Just had a boat survey done and everything came back great.

Started tying up stinger hooks and trolling leaders last week also.  Can't wait till the boat goes in the water.  Ready for a change, warmer weather, and visits to the camp ground.  Everyone keep praying for the weather to break and temperatures to climb so we can hit the water and chase them hungry walleyes.

For those of you interested, I have a few days open in June during the week.  Give me a call at 419-563-6439 and get your trip booked.  Visit Lake Erie Walleye Charter Fishing to get all the details needed for your great trip to Lake Erie aboard Sweet Escape Charters.

Think Spring,

Lake Erie Walleye Fishing Report by Sweet Escape Charters

September 2, 2012,  Another great day of walleye fishing for late summer.  I don't think the walleye action can get any hotter for this time of the season. We caught our limit of 42 walleye just north of b and c-can.  The day finished with a bang.  Only needed 36 walleye for my customers fish. When I made the official cooler count, it was 35 and within the next five minutes we had 42 in the cooler.  Had to recount to make sure we were not over the limit. Wow! What a finish.
The perch fishing was not as great as the previous days.  Only ended up with 65, but the walleye action made up for the lack of perch action.  Come check out the great walleye and perch action on Sweet Escape Charters.

Walleye Charter Fishing

The walleye and perch fishing are continuing to remain very good.  Last trip was August 1 and we ended up with 65 perch and a limit of 36 nice walleye.  The perch was a little slow on this day so we decided to go walleye fishing and it was fast and furious.  We caught the 36 walleye in less than 3 hours.  We fished just north of c-can trolling with leads at 60-65 ft using all stinger spoons.  Dipsy's were really good on 1 setting at 45 and 48 and 3 setting at 55 and 58.  There are still a lot of walleye hanging around in the western basin with plenty of bait fish.  I don't see these fish leaving and heading to the central basin.  Fishing should remain great for the remainder of the season.  Still have dates available for the month of September and October. Give me a call and we can get out and enjoy a day chasing walleye and perch on Lake Erie.  Hope to see you soon.  Take a look at the nice walleye below.

Lake Erie Walleye Charter Fishing - Hot July Action!

Hey everyone. The walleye action on Lake Erie's Western Basin is still hot. Many charter boats including myself continue to take limits of walleye. Trolling has been the tactic for success. We have been running leads anywhere from 55-75 ft back using 40 jets and scorpion stinger spoons with speeds varying from 2.0-2.8 mph. Sweet Escape Charters has openings available for the month of July and August. I anticipate the action to stay the same with the numbers of fish present in the b-can area we have been fishing. The presence of numerous baitfish is incredible. Do not hesitate to give me a call (419-563-6439) if interested in catching some great eating walleye.

Sweet Escape Charters Airs on ASO-TV

Got the tape back from a taping of a TV show on Adventure Sports Outdoors.  The show aired on TV in Peoria, Illinois. The taping took place on June 22, 2011, with Harry Canterbury and Bob Siler as the hosts.  It was a great day of fishing and best of all we took a limit of Lake Erie walleye.  Harry was very fortunate to catch a 27 3/4", 9 1/2 lb. walleye, just shy of Fish Ohio. 

I want to thank Harry and his company for giving me the opportunity to present my business for everyone to see.  Go check out Adventure Sports Outdoors and visit Lake Erie Walleye Charters to see the show.
