July 4th weekend.
The perch bite has been hot! hot! hot! Check perch pics to see some photos. Thank goodness because the walleye bite is very slow right now. Lets hope the continual change in weather and water temperature brings some good schools into our area and heats up the summer walleye fishing as well.
Recently Lucky Strike was contacted by one of our American soldiers stationed in Iraq. He requested some items which we were happy to send to him. He should be receiving them this week and as soon as we get his permission I will post his story under our news.
In the meantime I would like to say thank you to all of our soldiers and let them know that the Lucky Strike team is always praying for them so God bless all of you and God bless America.
The perch continued to be hot and the walleye were good to us as well this weekend. Take a look at the photo gallery/walleyes and see a couple of new pictures taken of Pat Sommers with his 32" - 10 lb walleye he caught on Sunday, 7/11/2004. I posted Pat's email he sent. We will be hitting the water hard and will post more news & pics asap.
August......up to the 21st.......The walleye bite has been on for the past few weeks. The fish are a short distance from our harbor. Thank everyone who has come up to fish and I believe most of you left with a comfortable trip and good catch! If the walleye stay near our harbor for as long as they did last year I'm sure it will be a banner year for us. If anyone knows anyone that wants walleye send them here NOW!
Fished for perch & took our limit with good size fish. Fished for walleyes the last three days and the bite was good although the weather conditions were tough. Stickbaits on wire line have done well for the last two months on the walleye. Dipsy divers with Stinger spoons have been taking walleye and the occasional steelhead trout. A few days ago worm harnesses fished on wire lines with discs saved our day and we took large walleye on them. The steelhead trout will soon be starting to visit our tributary streams. If we don't get hit with any cold rain and heavy blows from the upcoming hurricane we may be able to catch the walleyes as late as last year.
The story about the soldier stationed in Iraq:
In late June I was contacted by letter (see the copy below) from MSG Steven R. Logan stationed in Baghdad, Iraq. He had a modest request for lures or lines or whatever so he could wet a line. Talk about putting things in perspective! Here I am fishing all the time while our armed forces are fighting for the rights which everyone in our country enjoys.
I immediately sent Steven a rod & reel, line, hooks, lures, etc. with a letter stating my thanks to him and asking him to tell the other soldiers that my prayers are with them all. Below is a copy of the original letter from Steven
We told Steven that Lucky Strike Sport fishing supports our troops and told him God bless them all and God bless America. Then we received another letter from Steven in August. The copy is below
Well Steve this is your online "you're welcome" I hope it cools off enough for you to fish and I really hope you are able to catch something with what we sent you and I get to see some pictures. I will make a special section for them in our photo gallery. I don't know if you have any internet access there. If so, I would like to extend another thank you and I will write soon.
September 3rd-6th (Labor day weekend) The weather was great and the perch and walleye fishing was as good as it gets. It reminded me of what we call the "old days".......while starting to set rods for walleye trolling the fish were jumping on the baits right away & fish were on before the second rods were set in the water. Everything set in the water was taking fish. Thank all of you who have come to Ashtabula and fished with us and I'll certainly be looking forward to your returns.
The walleye are continuing to cooperate despite the wind blowing for a few days as remnants of the hurricane made their way north. We hooked quite a few steelhead trout and some real nice sized fish. Soon they will be targeting the streams. The perch fishing was hot hot hot. The 9/12 trip with Stan White's group with three young men.....boy those kids could fish! Tell them Captain Art said wonderful job! Their group caught the 7:30 am bridge, fished 8 plus miles from the harbor and dropped their cooler of 210 perch off at River Marine at 10:45 am to have them cleaned.
Cancelled trips due to heavy seas....sorry about that guys. We're better off rescheduling instead of beating people up on the water and giving you a very uncomfortable trip. Lets hope you get a good bite when you get back to the lake.
Dr. Frank....we will be in touch.
October.....many heavy sea and cancellation days. The perch bite was sure good when you can get on the water. Started stream fishing. The water was very low and super clear but the steelhead were very cooperative. Took many limits of Ohio fish. Took some PA steelhead but the bite was not as good for us.
Jack Donley - have a safe trip back to Florida. Sorry we couldn't get you more perch to take back but at least you will be able to tell your friends what the boat looks like first hand......and I'm glad I got to help you celebrate your birthday.....the ice cream cake was great! Have fun on Party Poker!
November-December....The steelhead fishing has been hot-hot-hot. Many limits of fish are being taken. We have targeted more of the Ohio streams and as soon as I get some film finished I will post some pictures. The water levels have risen and as of right now, Dec 12th the streams are blown out and we are getting a good snow.
