This year 3 rods per person, and 6 fish for the spring jigging season. Should be a fantastic season. Lots of catch able year classes .
Lets get them.

So happy that Erie finally went to the three rods this year. Can now run a 6 rod planer board spread with only two guys in the boat, and if i get a third guy then I'm either flatlining some tadpoles or setting my downriggers down for a total of 8 lines.
The extra fish this spring will be nice too. Now just gotta hope mother nature cooperates, last year both my trips were scrapped due to the horrendous spring/early summer weather out there.

Beginning of April thru start of May the males move close in and shallow, this is the jigging season, 3/4 oz to 1 ounce hair jigs snapped off the bottom or my favorite- 3/4 oz blade baits fished the same way. I launch out of Magees east marina, there is a reef system out there, Crane, Cone, Flat rock, Touissant, Locust,Round . They all hold fish, sometimes you don't even need to go that far, maybe just a mile out, I'll usually start in 14 ft of water. About second week of May thru June thats when its time to run deep diving bandits off planer boards, around 1.5 mph. I launch out of Catawba or Mazuriks, both excellent launches and free too. Troll the south passage, up around bass islands, around Kelley's island, let the cleaner water dictate where you start.
This should get you started on your way to some fun limits! Post a review on here when you get back.

If you watch the weather and leave last minute can you find a place to stay.?

It can be tough. In the spring you might luck out and find a place in Port Clinton and drive a little west or you might have to go to Marblehead and make a 30 min drive west. Last year both my scheduled trips had to be scrapped. I might try the last minute deal this year if my partners could swing it. I don't want to be shut out again like last year .

Perrysburg is a good choice if you can't find something closer. The jig bite in April is great but may and june have been good in the western basin and the weather is generally more predictable.

I 100% agree with you there bruce. If i do a jigging trip in April it will probably have to be last minute lets go type thing, weather is so unpredictable to plan it in advance any more. Jigging is a blast though.Seeing how good the summer bite was this year i might make my usual May trolling trip into a June trip to take advantage of the weather. As you go further into the summer you can speed up and use dipseys and spoons too.
