Lord help me please 😂 😂 the reel on my other bass pole has been super tight for a while now but haven’t needed to use to pole so I’ve left it alone all this time. This reel is so much more messed up than I thought, algae growing inside of it, tons of oil and grease, there’s just so much gunk in this thing it’s unbelievable

The deep south
I’ll be targeting walleye and perch. Should I bring a bass pole that I use for saugeye, bass and occasionally catfish and a bit 10ft catfish rod or bring 2 bass poles? I plan on using crankbait, spinners and possibly live minnows on a bullet sinker with 1.5’ of line to the hook with live minnow if I do use live for walleye and was thinking possibly smaller spinners, hairy jigs and possibly soft plastic crawfish lure for perch. I have never caught perch or walleye before and don’t know any on how to catch or target them. I’ll be using 20lb test line the entire time. Should I get some nylon leaders so walleye don’t bite through the line? I’ll only be in Marblehead and possibly Kelly’s island for 1 day. Are walleye currently moving to cooler, deeper waters or will they still be up near the bank by what I think is called wall breakers or something like that, don’t remember. Done a bit of research on walleye and perch size and daily limit. The hotel I’ll be at has a pier but don’t know how far out it is. Any advice will be much appreciated. I’m so freaking excited to finally fish Lake Erie. I’ve been there many times as a baby but never fished it but as a baby been on a boat while my papaw catches walleye, he’s not going this week but going soon and taking me along to fish.
Shore fishing i take it? Hit any break walls or jetties u may have acess too... id roll with the bass gear/rods. more than fine for even the occasional drum u might run into. Temps are gettin pretty warm but id imagine ull get a mixed bag either way if u can find a break wall/jetty. I only fish for pike or musky lol... but see alot of reports for the lake being in N.E. Ohio... check out ohio fishing reports on FB, can prob pin point where ur goin and find out whats good in the area 🤙🐊

Thank you. I think there’s break wall in marble head. My other open bail reel is broke so I had to find a quick fix and chose an old but trusty push button rhino titanium 33

My first ever Lake Erie fish, massive largemouth bass. It was about 15” and keeping size is 14”. Caught him on a green and silver spoon. Also got to watch a big bird of some type grab a 20” walleye out of the water. Day one: going decent so far D2437C8F-5365-48E7-AB9A-31B3A16B9D5A.jpeg

Having an amazing time here. Met so many amazing people too. Someone I met and fished with a bit taught me that you can catch round goby and hook them through the top of their mouth and just throw it out as far as possible and the freshwater drum absolutely love them. I’ve caught 7 or 8 today. Here’s my biggest so far. 2B05FDAB-C69F-4D12-B371-FB475F03CED9.jpeg8C431853-FF09-442F-B090-83617AC9C26F.jpegAnd here’s all the others along with 2 16” largemouth and a little rock bass2E307F90-D98A-445D-8B52-333D2ADFEEEA.jpeg07B34023-E6F0-40CD-B754-FDBE873B04F9.jpeg8619E27C-1BA2-4589-9DBE-C81471A54204.jpegB7678B05-C3F3-4D6D-8522-DB95639E4034.jpeg81BC2665-2FEC-4AF2-93F9-6954BC53CA49.jpeg3F5570CB-7B39-4E05-AD03-DFA69D190749.jpeg 8E0F724B-947A-4A1A-A168-0032EBE4452D.jpeg7EC60726-5672-492D-8384-BC0CC5E93182.jpegF5FB3DD0-B9C2-4F76-8397-F9F80F6E82CC.jpeg

Recently tried out fishing this month. Some how I managed to lose the reel when I cast my rod, accidentally rammed the rod into my fan and broke it, and tangled up two bundles of braided line. Went out to try fishing 4 times and caught nothing. Don’t understand howZzz…

What kind of reel do you have? What kind of line? How much weight on the line and how do you throw the reel of the pole 😂
