About Walleye

Walleye_36462_7Walleye feed readily, are generally concentrated in schools, put up a fight, attain a good size, and are highly sought after as superior table fare!

Identifying characteristics: (Native Fish) Two dorsal fins separated into a spiny and a soft-rayed portion, cloudy eye, white tips on anal and lower caudal fins, canine teeth.

Walleye are the largest member of the perch family. They lack the distinctive vertical bar makings of the yellow perch and have fan-like canine teeth. These battling fish are exciting to catch, delicious to eat and because they feed actively all winter, they provide a fine year-round sport fishery.

In spring and fall walleyes congregate in shallow bay waters of the great Lakes, where they seek out rocky areas and submerged bars. During the bright part of the day they retreat in schools to the shade of deep waters or submerged objects. In the summer, walleyes range into cooler, deeper waters. They prefer a water temperature of 55 to 68 degrees F and are seldom found in waters deeper than 50 feet.

Whether your a novice or a seasoned Great Lakes angler I’ll make every effort to make your charter fishing trip on Lake Erie a memorable one.
Fishing trips on Lake Erie depart from Luna Pier Harbor Club Marina in Luna Pier Michigan. Specializing in trolling the open water of the Western Basin. Open water walleye fishing is unique to the Great Lakes region. Lake Erie is the 4th smallest of the Great Lakes and contains the largest variety of fish species along with some of the mid-west’s best walleye and perch fishing. The Monroe Michigan area of Lake Erie also provides camping at Sterling State Park and local motels that give a fishing trip discount on an over night stay. Be my guest aboard the Stray Cat, and experience some true Michigan walleye fishing.


Let’s Fish!

Fishing Charters for walleye take place on both Michigan and Ohio waters of Lake Erie just south of Monroe MI.
The city of Luna Pier also has a pier to fish from for walleye and perch in the spring and fall after dark. Downtown Luna Pier also has a beautiful beach for some family fun and relaxation, with historical downtown Monroe near by.

I follow the fish for the best bite that’s why I offer fishing trips in two states and depart out of Luna Pier south of Monroe Michigan and north of Toledo, Ohio. The marina’s location is just off the Michigan – Ohio boarder,  which allows you to fish the most productive water on any given day.
