Last Sunday I had the opportunity to get out on Lake Erie for some walleye trolling with some buddies. I’ve never trolled this late in the season so let me tell you it was cold, but beautiful start to the day.
We ended up launching and heading about 3-4 off the shore and started our trolling.
We were pretty excited that I was able to pull the first walleye about 10 mins into our trolling. It was a beautiful fish caught on a shad about 1/3 way down in the water column. We were running out 50 feet on planer boards.
We ended up almost limiting out for the 3 of us. We caught 17 fish that we kept. We also picked up some white bass and a musky that we released.
We ended up getting back to the launch just before sunset so it was a long day. We hit the road at 4 am and got home around 6 pm so when I got home it was time for one last beer before bedtime.
I cracked open another Treehouse beer which hit the spot. Their beers are complex, well crafted and some of the best that I’ve had. I’m sad they are hard to find and so far me. My stock of their beers is fading quickly.
