Professional fishermen are walking away with buckets of walleye today.
The Perch Pirate took about 20 fishermen and several outdoor writers to Lake Erie. This season, the fishing charter has a new location, docked at Liberty Park.
The captain of the Perch Pirate, Bob Zawadzki, says this season there are a lot more walleye than perch. “The fact that the walleye fishing is getting better and the perch fishing is tough; they’re out there, but it’s tough. We’ve decided to drift for walleye.”
The walleye fishing season is expected to remain strong through August.
