Local News

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.
