Empire Beach

on December 28th

The beaches around here are beautiful and sandy. Can have a great relaxing day on the beach, and yes the waters get fairly sandy. You'll find the trout and walleye swimming about 20 meters off land, The currents shift quite often in Lake Erie due to high winds, the walleye and trout may be moving around, so a dinghy would be needed to get past the beach's sandy floor and cover as much ground in search of a catch. When you find their territory, we used some trolling rigs, plastic swim baits, diving spoons, large kokanee spoons and rapala jakes are good for hooking some large walleye. As far as I know the rainbows and walleye are stocked for the anglers and fisheries. We trolled around 3 km's here and hooked some walleye on smaller troll baits. Aimed our rod tips nearly directly up, allowed them to bob and the bait swam perfectly. Low wind day and the skies were overcast. Found the pike diving deep on warmer days and had to fish the bays.
