Presque Isle Bay newbie. Seeking tips.
Wife and I are coming upto Erie from Pgh, to check out Presque Isle and hang for a few days, Wed, Thurs, & Fri, we're gonna be in a good motel. Originally we had planned a week of tent camping on Assateaque Island
but due to the nasty hurricane screwing up the coastal weather --- that was 100% not a good idea!
So we are making it work and gonna experience Erie PA and the lake. I want to get out and do some fishing from shore. As far as my fishing orientation, I am not really a bait guy, more the arificial type, when it is feasable. I have spoons, all kinds of spinners, crank baits, jerk baits, many rubber worms and rubber jigs with twisters...lots of plastic.
Sorry, I know there is a ton of information in threads on this board, but I was hoping I could just get a few words of wisdom to get me started in a good direction or place. I have a few days and don't know the area at all.
Any spots I should try? Wharfs, piers? Landings or docks that are good? I would do big perch, any bass would be awesome, I am open to catching trout, or walleyes? --- or am I dreaming thinking I can get anything after all this rain?
I could wear waders if it would help. But I'm confined to shoreline-ish. I am assumming any creeks are probably blown out for a few days?(PS If someone told me I really should use shiners or lave bait, I would consider giving up my resistance.)
Thanks any help guys!
