Going to lake erie next week with our own boat to try for the walleye bite. Whats a good starting point for a newbie out there. We did a charter last week but I feel he may have gone out further than i want to with a 17ft lund.

Any tips will be appreciated.

Good bite out of Huron just North of the Dump. I have a 20' Lund and I usually Launch out of Mazurik boat launch, this way depending on wind I can fish East or West of Kelly's. It is big water watch the wind.

I'm excited for my first trip to Erie on 7/15. We are going to be fishing with Seeing Red Charters.

If you decide to fish the Huron dump, I recommend that you launch in Huron. There is great launch up the river about a mile from the lake with plenty of parking. The dump is about 2 miles almost straight out (a little west) from lighthouse in Huron. I fished the dump 5 times a few weeks ago and burned maybe 13 gallons of gas.

From what I see on the Facebook Erie pages, there is a good bite in front of Cranberry Creek (there is a launch right there) and good bite out of Lorain (never fished there). Maybe join some of those Facebook pages and connect with those guys. There's a bunch that seem to want to share info.

If you go to Seeing Red fishing charters facebook page you'll see my ugly mug with our haul. Had an EXCELLENT day with Captain JJ yesterday and learned a new technique while out there. We had our limit by about 12 noon but had to really work for them. Good/Great average size. Our freezers are full of nice filets. Mix in a handful of 5# Cats and 10-15# Sheephead and it truly was a great day of fishing.

We pulled harnessess in "The Middle" out of Herl's Marina in Port Clinton. I cannot recommend Seeing Red highly enough. Will be back at least once a year if not more, and may even try my hand at the walleyes with my own boat. We'll see.

"The Middle"? Were you on the Canadian line? By the weather bouy?
