Went to Huron on a last-minute decision to go fish from Leland (SparkyToo)... great weather, and tons of walleye.

Launched out of Cranberry Creek and headed due north til we got to ~40 fow.

Got 25 keepers on Saturday from 7am - 2pm. Bandits with 2-3oz Snakebite weights 30 ft back, then another 80-85 feet to the board. Khaki and silver/white were the hot colors.

Repeated our luck on Sunday, although it was getting a little more windy. Got 28 total walleye, 3 being too short. Purple was the hot color that day.

Best Erie trip I've ever had... We talked to a guy at a bait shop, asked him what setup / lure was hot, and he said "anything" - sweet, I have several of those!

If we didn't get bit in 10-15 minutes, we'd pull in the lines to check them - and most of the time had at least 1 or 2 dragging. Our arms were getting tired from reeling in all the fish!

These Snakebite snap weights Leland had are great - I highly recommend them (I ordered a set as soon as we got home).

Still trying to figure out how to use the GoPro. One nice thing about it is the ability to extract photos from your videos. Here are a few...

Helluva trip.
Looks like PB is trying to extort you like many of us. You can post links to your PB pics rather than embed images. Another possibility is to find another 3rd party host. Option 3 is the choose file button at bottom of post page---this has limitations---Max file size 200k. Max dimensions 640x640 and just one image per post. Yeah, this sucks. Sorry.
