  • Ohio spinnerbait fishingGFO Library: Spinning Magic on Ohio Lakes Everywhere!

    Do you have a "go to" lure? That one you tie on because you KNOW you can catch fish on it? Every summer, I seem to find a "magic" lure - one that finds the fish no matter what. This year, it is one of my 'ole favorites: a spinnerbait. Ohio spinnerbait fishing is a BLAST!

    I've always loved spinnerbait fishing for bass. Blades thumping and flashing, tail fluttering, it just lures fish right in. Boy, do they SLAM it, too! This year, Ohio waters haven't disappointed. I have caught fish with THE SAME spinnerbait (albeit with many trailer changes) all summer long.

Lake Erie Fishing Reports

July 2, 2018

Captain Gary Zart here. Lake Erie is on fire and I mean in a good way lol. From the Islands to Conneaut within a few miles of shore you literally cannot keep rods in the water.

You can troll. You can cast. It doesn’t matter. Use your electronics to find active fish. From 20-ft to 50-ft of water should do the trick.

Dipsey divers pulling spoons, worm harnesses and shallow cranks is about the easiest way to catch them. I call it the revolving door.

Pull Reef Runners and Bandits behind Offshore Boards weighted or unweighted to increase your catch rate. Speed has been 2.3 to 2.7.

It’s as much fun fishing as you can have in a day. Get out and enjoy it while you can.

Visit me on Facebook at Gary A. Zart or on our website at Blue Dolphin Walleye Charters (BlueDolphinWalleye.com).
