Steve started fishing at the foot of Ferry Street 60 years ago with his father and brothers. He became a die-hard breakwall fisherman and later a dedicated night fisherman casting Rapalas for walleye. He is proud of the fact that the U. S. Corp of Engineers implemented his design idea of the pressure relief pipes when they rebuilt the Ferry Street breakwall. Eventually Steve and his brother John bought their first boat and attacked the walleye and perch from the old LaSalle Park ramp and Sturgeon Point harbor.
Now Steve targets perch from the Catt ramps as soon as ice out occurs on Lake Erie until June 1st. The "Small Boat Harbor" then becomes his departure point in the hunt for walleye until August 1 when he shifts back to the deeper waters off the Catt for walleye until about mid-September. Perch then become the hunted until the gales of November shut down the season and he shifts to trout in the lower Niagara and then some local ice fishing. In this seminar Steve will present his tips for making that perch outing successful and enjoyable.
