Stay tuned for the biggest fish the hottest fights this week here on in-depth outdoors with James holes under the hat ah how’s that an incredible fair and the rest of the I do fishing team we’re headed to the best Fisheries across the Upper Midwest and Canada will fish longer explore unfished bodies of water and go further off the beaten path in search of the hottest bites in fresh water with coughs wheel what and Joel nil this is an absolute this is in-depth outdoors on today’s episode of in-depth outdoors we are a long way from home standing on the shores of Lake Erie where we hope to get in on what is arguably one of the best walleye bites in North America and we’re here at the right time we’re here third week April which is usually that peak time period where guys can come out here on this big body of water and roll up both pre spawn and post spawn walleyes and huge numbers so we wrapped up our show last week on Sturgeon Bay where we were fishing for those brown trout casting we noticed there was a really favorable stretch of wind’s coming to this area which is very important for anglers headed to this destination if you can get some easy seiz’d efficient that makes this fishery all that much more enjoyable now I’ve never fished here before my fishing buddy today will be Adam Rasmussen he’s got a little experience on this body of water but believe me between the two of us this is basically a new fishery to us so we’re looking forward to learning something about this great lake and putting some huge fish in the boat today on in depth outdoors ready to go catch some walleyes first guy insured gets to eat free tonight I’m glad we made the drive yeah it’ll be worth minimal sleep a lot of driving now water temperature and water clarity plays a huge role in being successful out here on Lake Erie if the wind kicks up water clarity on who can just go horrible and the fishing can follow suit it’ll get really tough this place can go to mud in a hurry and when you got that dark brown muddy water it’s very hard to catch them out here so now the other hand you really don’t want that crystal-clear blue water either right so you know technology is great right things just keep getting easier and easier for us anglers I mean electronic keep getting better but one of the things that that we’re going to use out here to help us get on fish quickly is we’ve got satellite imagery now of the lake you can actually see the water clarity differences from space and tell us about it as long as you have a clear day like this it’ll you’ll get you know three to four pictures a day on modus imagery see the search Lake Erie motifs imagery we got it right here on our phone and we can see where that there’s still a lot of brown muddy water out there how about the week we can see where the clear stuff is obviously we aren’t gonna have coordinates on it right now but we can get pretty close dress cut up at the island sounds good let’s do it here we go so as we get started here today really what we need to do is put together a program that allows us to target these walleyes that are suspended out off the structure here and right now we’ve got overcast conditions so I’m looking to find a mix of colors that I know perform well under cloudy conditions like this like this UV green and we are expecting some Sun later when colors like that chrome blue should be very effective and you’ll notice that a lot of these baits they’re very long and thunder slender in profile they’re not your shad style baits they’re what is referred to as kind of that banana’ body shape so we’re going to mix in some baits like that some of my other favorites would be like a tail dancer number eleven this is purple decid phenomenal color out here on the Great Lakes so all we’re doing is we’re just changing the amount of a line we have out between that planer board and the bait so my plan right now is to kind of mix things up I’m going to be heavy on the UV colors because I know that they’ve been producing well of late and what I plan to do is on my outside board I’ll run 125 feet my middle board will be a hundred feet and my closest board to the boat is going to be at seventy-five feet and that will give me that nice stagger I need and then I’m going to mix up the colors real good and Adam is doing the same on his side of the boat so we’re just paying attention to which baits are producing well and swapping out the ones that aren’t and in the time it took me to talk about what I was going to do Adams already got it done well here’s one here’s one for going back got it heavy what’s really cool about how you approach this trolling presentation is you’ve got these huge schools of walleyes and they’re you know for Minnesota for guys that are used to talking about schools you know three four six ten fish it’s hard to appreciate how huge these schools are out here 100 thousands of big walleyes in one small area and they’re all woven from the east it’s deeper water over there to the east and their head and West into the western basin here they got to pass through these islands so what a lot of guys do and what we’re trying to do is use these islands as a funnel the wall has got to come through these narrow areas to go to the west so this is what we’re trying to ambush them and right now we’ve got just kind of real broken up water clarity looking off of the north I can see real clear water here we’ve got some pretty decent color water temperature 43 44 degrees pretty much prime time here for Lake Erie all right look you’re feeling ah he’s not all that but I like him he’s better than my first white bass come here big walleye stay hooked up stay hooked up yeah nice fish there is that I see a post boner huh both spawn long lean nice fish though and based on her water her skin color there she’s kind of washed out a little bit must be spending some time and some dirty water huh yeah look at that that’s not a the coloration of an open water Roman fish that spend a lot of time in clean water probably uh you know 27 inch fish she just recently lost a lot of weight so we’re gonna fire her back and know that she’s dropped dead she’s gonna really repeat the process and head back to the East’s where she’s gonna spend her summer not that there’s no fish down here in the western basin but certainly there’s a very predictable movement to these fish all right back you go that was pretty cool goodbye off she goes are you compromising like the fishermen – WX 2060 and the MX 2040 from Skeeter boats loaded with a long list of standard features anglers want at an unbeatable price including a Yamaha BMX sh o 250 horsepower outboard yamaha t kicker with remote controls moretz HDS 12 gen 3 touch at the – anna MinnKota 112 Altera on the bow the WX 26 t priced is 61 495 the new winx 2014 Christ is 64 95 more comfort more standard features when you move up to a WX 20 60 or MX 2040 you get more of everything yep better than that board absolutely there is you know we got to do we’ve got to go a little micro trolling runs here because it’s like every time we go to pull up lines I get a fish yeah I think it feels like another ds1 you know what that’s the exact same pink UV is it yes it is starting to put a little bit of a pattern together yeah the pattern is threatened to leave and go up on another pass and catch a fish boards go off this one’s got more weight to it than that last one that bar just whoo buried nice well slow and steady like those bigger fish – thank you sir oh I got one on this rap hahaha there’s no board on it hey when we’re reeling in I unclip my board off of this one I’m like I’ll just leave it in the rod holder until we get this fish in and well I’m gonna throw a waypoint or nob well now what do we do just let me know when you’re ready for the net and I’ll set this back in the rod holder it doesn’t feel as big as he did or you can deal with that what I’ll just uh I think I got this one myself ah don’t ya just decent one yeah I guess I stand corrected let’s look at her post born huh yep well that’s a good fish I’m not sure this is ideal but it looks looked good yeah oh I need to hit the gym oh nice Hey that is a long mama there how far are you I am the old 30 feet 30 feet alright I’ll try to hurry here look at that boy she would have been something else about three or four days ago don’t you figure long fish this is why guys come to Lake here your course most guys myself included would prefer to see that fish full of eggs a little bit more impressive when they have that big old belly on them but that fish just t-boned that bit no way I’m getting that up with my fingers they’re gone that one look at that looks like UV is the color to have right now that was all green you definitely add some length to it huh I mean that fish is that’s getting out there towards 28 inches or so yeah that’s a solid fish Pole spawn you’re sposta slower pre-spawn alright well yeah I’m gonna fire mine back alright back you go mama walleye see you later straight to the bottom alright another average fish not quite as big as yours but that’s cool to see a double yes it was we’re getting on the right deal particularly with the the rod and the rod holder I looked over and it was just doubled over straight behind the boat so let this girl go and I think we should spin around quick and change some stuff up get some more UV baits at that same same part in the water column and agreed see how many we can get on at one time this is a place to actually get four or five six fish on and then test the strategy see if a guy two guys can handle six fish at a time exactly I’m up for a challenge all right we’ll see you later there she goes cool shadow wrap shads a jerk bait with a secret move when you pause the lure slowly Rises tell you man makes fish come unglued Oh are you compromising like the fishermen from the first time you pick up a tuned up custom rod you’ll know you’re holding something special a rod not mass-produced but built one at a time by the hands of gifted craftsmen rods like the precision ice fishings most versatile multi-species rod or the precision noodle with a tip so sensitive you’ll never fish a spring bobber again and the commander the rod that’s never met a big fish it could best tuned up custom rods ice rods handcrafted for you and the way you fish know something’s gonna start to break out so biggest thing that I like to do what I’m trolling I think as well as a lot of other guys is I want to make sure you’re trolling with the wind when you like this it makes life so much simpler and you get a more steady speed so we’re just using the ball mount today and actually using remote control the steerer sand we can fine tune our speed on it is every tenth of a mile or will make a difference so we’re trying to stay in that one five to one seven because the water is cooler so on each time that we get a fish on obviously one very important thing to do is drop a waypoint on that spot there’s nothing to line up landmarks or anything out here so GPS is important drop a waypoint on that pot of fish and odds are you can go back up and make another pass catch a few more and do it again and again and again they’ll keep you on those schools of fish I think one other thing out here too that’s I’ve noticed over the years of fishing here is study was in a kicker motor using that trolling motor to kind of keep things quiet because these fish are so high in the water column I think it definitely allows you to get a few more bites at the end of the day James there’s one inside board got it drop a waypoint on that thank you this feels like a good fish it looked good when that bar run back it felt really good you don’t kind of noticing a pattern here it’s not so much color or speed it’s mostly side of hope that’s cuz I’m a good guide and I’m turning the boat so your boards are on the inside running just a little bit slower so what good guides do but it’s all UV today no question about it thank you sir it is heavy feels really heavy this one is by far the heaviest I felt not as big as I thought who’s gonna be good it’s got a big head on it though oh man that one that the chunker I like it heck yeah alright yeah that is a big good one here you hold me at your rod I’m gonna steer the boat here and that’s a pre-spawn or a partial spawner I mean she’s still got some chub to her look at that that’s what a guy comes out to Lake Erie to catch drive all night long she might be all spawned out or maybe a little bit of egg mass left man we’re getting some absolute shucks well you know we’ve only been here a couple hours that’s already living up to you know the reputation easily yeah see you bye that is a nice fish and we’ll get bigger I’m sure we will outside outside oh yeah it’s a steelhead and just smoked it that’s awesome not bad good fish nice it’s all yours man all right still taking me by size hey it’s a wonderful position to be in and a body of water to fish where you can say that that’s kind of like the bottom end of fortune we’re gonna catch out here ahead alright back later fish mmm cool deal purple that’s it official Bashan yes I do oh it’s heavy hope you like a good fish oh boy honking slows down a little bit now I’m gonna have to bigger than his heels here they’re all nice ones yes they are that’s that blue chrome on number 12 husky jerk man she just dug in huge well show than that what’s the old rule of thumb you get some Sun you throw out some chrome great yeah whoa I just saw a big head shake yes sir this fish is digging all good fish good fish I can feel it that’s t-boned it – I like it nice thank you sir thank you oh man that one’s a pre spawner big old belly honor I like it you gotta hold that net for me thank you got it we have had some very aggressive lights today every one of those fish just has that thing just t-bone look at that that is enough performing a trick that’s a nice yep absolutely that’s uh probably yeah it’s not a 30 but that’s been closed you can really tell the difference and just an extra two pounds between that’s a nice fish Jim this is a big heavy care failure feel that fish on the rod that my farms my biggest fish of the day very nice hahaha all right go make some babies sure thank you sir Thanks job this again returns at the lucky side of the book I love it picture some driver I all about the driver I will do be credit for that because I will own up to the fact that this guy said he was gonna speed up the boat to

fish house is the ultimate way to play shallow wraps adds a jerk bay with a secret move when you pause the lure slowly Rises tell you man makes fish come unglued Oh as we’ve got deeper into the day one pattern it’s become kind of a universal is the green UV and the pink UV to some extent is really they’re taken off as far as the color of choice for the fish the chrome colors are using midday when we had some more sunlight on the water they’ve just fallen dead so right now I think if you wouldn’t did a little hole here all six lines have some form of UV paint scheme on them put simple facts they’re just catching the fish and nothing else is middle board middle board Oh heavy fish get this one out of the way for you yeah this one flying back man how much line you got out on this I’ve got the bottom 15 I got 125 middle area get it on yeah this guy has head in the east man we have piled up a lot of nice fish today we have is your inside board going it is double doubleheader beginning I got them all the racket huge isn’t with yours let her buck Greg for a little bit yeah this has got some weight like I’d bear down on the drag here a little bit but don’t lose I love it when you can see the head shakes in the board as it goes back thank you yes sir oh yeah let’s good god him I’m gonna start working on player right there let’s his fish just sit in the rod holder light takes off my Quaker board alright I’m at about thirty feet I’m just got bigger how does it do that alright you’re standing in the net see what I can do here there I got you got a big fish let’s get this one oh yeah – nice fish that’s a happy fish there boys she gone nice oh that’s a nice fish buddy nice fish all right you got that I got this I’ll try to get this fish out of there in a hurry it’s like that other double we had were you beat me well all about the lucky side of the boat right but that fish another one that’s probably not gonna hit that thirty range but definitely upper 20s all right so you got that one out of green UV – oh yeah this one’s on green UV also look at that tanker goodbye yo belly grab there he had me beat once again oh it all comes down to luck of the draw right good sweet deal another decent fish yeah that’s always fun when you get doubles absolutely alright well let’s get these back out and see if we can get another one No all right well do ya lookin good they sleep you’re outside birds going back you mind your own boards here I’ll give you a hand all right I think it’s another pretty decent one am I not that we’ve had pretty penny small fish today at all I went back a hundred and sixty-five foot this time let’s get a little bit darker they’re starting to drop down in the water column oh this one found it oh yeah when you get that board off and you can finally feel the fish you can kind of tell it you know it’s not a shaker heavy always good when you’re lying is going down uh-huh well the few small fish we did have UT they come up to the surface pretty quick I mean this is the main difference his big girl stayed down oh man heavy she just said nope we’re headed alight oh not a giant but a decent one huh got him she was hooked all about foo barred your nest yeah perfect she was hooked right on the top of her mouth so as I was bringing her in she had her mouth open wide you know that’s a great fish anywhere and a great fish to end the day I’m gonna let her go see you later she’s in a hurry this body of water Lake Erie has lived up to all the height I mean I’ve heard about it for years decades never had a chance to get here on open water just love the fact that we got to get out here and do it ahead of time when you know we got a little bit of win the day we tried the time our arrival where we’d have some real favorable calm seas sometimes the weather guys aren’t quite on their mark right no big deal we’re still able to get out here you catch a bunch of fish and Adam you did a phenomenal job driving the boat today it’s been a blast it was fun to come out here it’s nice to be back and as good as it’s ever been so what’s on tap for the rest of our time here we promised that we were going to put together a show based off a one day’s fishing that’s what we’re gonna do it we’re done but we’re gonna keep fishing so I think we’re gonna do tomorrow’s we’re gonna try some jig fishing I think that’d be fun cuz for the guys that don’t like Patrol you know you can come out here catch walleyes a whole bunch of different ways so maybe we’ll make a second show we’ll show guys what we figured out as far as the digging bite but Adams you know from Adam Rasmussen and I thanks for watching everybody we’ll see you next week good times for more info on the latest fish reports gear recommendations and hottest techniques
