Day 1 of 2 with Dave, Sharon, and Scott Meinerz 9/14/17
by Capt Juls on 09/14/17
Dave, Sharon, and their son Scott were scheduled to fish with Capt Gary on the Sara J today and tomorrow, but Capt Gary told them that the perch were not biting over by Lorain, but that the walleye were. Dave, and the family, wanted to fish for perch, so Capt Gary told him that he would refund their deposit, so they could come back to the west to fish for perch.
Dave had called me Monday afternoon, after reading my blog, stating I had several days off....to ask if I still had today and tomorrow free...I did. So, he booked the days, and today we set out after some perch. We hit three spots, but did best again up on the line straight north of Mazurik's.
It was a slow start...slow middle...and slow ending! The bite was light, and tough, but we managed to put 60 in the box before heading in. The quality was once again very very nice, and they were very happy with their catch today, so that's all that matters. :)
We'll be doing the same tomorrow, but the weatherman said it will be foggy in the AM..."thick fog" he said, so I expect there will be a lot of boats not going out tomorrow. We will though. I have a feeling the fish will be biting in those conditions. Then again, maybe it will be foggy on land, but not on the lake...one can only hope...sigh.
But, if you DO go, and it is foggy on the lake....PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY.... and, keep an eye out for other boaters on the water. Do not drive fast in foggy conditions...and, have your navigation lights on.
It should go without saying, but I have seen with my own eyes...boat operators driving recklessly in those conditions.
The fish will be there, even if it takes you a little longer to get there! Everyone wants to get off the water safe and sound, so if you don't want to think of your own safety...think of other's safety. THANKS!!
Good luck and be safe...:)
