I am going usually 5-6km offshore.
I do you use a 2.5Hp/4 stroke (Ultra low emissions) Yamaha. Next year planning to get a 3.5Hp Tohatsu.
The part that I like about these motors is that in drive at minimum speed consume very little gas.
With 1L of gas I can troll 5-6 hours. I don't consume more than 1.5L per exit.
Also in Drive (D) with throttle at minimum the speed is around 3Km/h (ideal for trolling).
If you are in top of the fish the action is crazy.
I had last Sunday one in the net/boat jumping, second one on one rod fighting with it and a third one hooked on second rod. I need more arms.
I am hooked to Erie for a while. The fish are great to eat, the one in 2-3-4 Lb range.
If you want to come I can pull you in the fishing grounds and pull you back to the shore.
I did that with other friends that run out of batteries or arm power.
I might go once this year again there.

Went again on Erie today, tried another location.
Go a nice bulky 28 incher.
Same recipe: trolling offshore with crank bait close to the bottom in 50 to 70 FOW.

Yes, the Erie has good walleyes.
Nice day today for my first tour there. Lots of boats. All the boast in line for boat ramp.
I like the kayak priority number I, sand beach free access, no line to wait.
All fish caught in 70FOW, 6km offshore on crankbait.

Thanks Brent.  Why not take a trip down Hyway 7 and fish the event Saturday?  Represent the East.

easy limits

hitting on cranks and harnesses 70 to 90 ft about 4-5 miles out

Bit of a paddle !

Can probably get better in the Larry eh!

The walleye have really come back in the St. Lawrence, thanks mainly to conservation efforts on the US side ( mid river..Brockville to Iroquois ) . A new New York state record walter was caught this year from Larry. There's finally a kayak bass tourney this fall on the Larry too ! https://tourneyx.com/app/tourney/north-east-kayak-fishing-classic-2018     
                 Good luck this weekend Johnny !

Gotta love the internet for that kind of fishing pressure.

Lol

Anybody here fishing Erie north side for walleye?
Look like some people have good time there.

Quote from an Erie forum today:
"Been trying every harbour on North Shore (Erie) this summer! Got more bows by lighthouse but the walleye are completely stacked from east-west! I’ve never had this kind of quality/quantity in my life! Fish On🎣 Btw Stella/Gracie are just waiting for poles to go away & bring on the Duks/Long Necks🦆
"
