  1. 2 lb. 8 oz. 6 in. Largemouth Bass

  2. 6/20/20: Erie county is still in the yellow phase and the walleyes are engaged in social distancing. No large gatherings and substantial distances between them made ...more for another grind bite. Good news Erie is going green Friday!

    Today the Nemesis hosted the bachelor boys from Beaver. The pressure was on as tonight's big bachelor party featured walleye as the main course. We picked at them all day generating 35 bites which brought 23 walleyes and 4 steelies to the cooler. Tournament caliber box today and the fillets filled a 5 gallon meat bucket!

    Mark, Andrew, Brett, Buddy, and Luke where part of the party! Congrats Mark!

  7. The Nemesis crew finished the day with 5 man limit and 1 bonus steelhead. Not bad after being in Lake Ontario, for pre-fishing and tournaments, for the last few ...more weeks. Was a little work finding them after a 3 day east wind. They were scattered in pods and the water temp was crazy. The laked "flipped" as some would say in our area. Inside was iced out on top and unstable. Even found area's where it was 61 degrees on top and 62 degrees at 50' down. We had to find the stable water temps and that meant going deeper. For us it was outside 60'. Fish were suspended at 40 to 45 feet down. Good day for this crew, getting back in the swing of it. Love the new upgrade to Raymarine Axiom displays with Realvision dual transducers and the Evolution 200 autopilot. #Raymarine #Fishidy. If you would like to fish with us for a day please go to and let us know. Follow us on facebook at Nemesis Sport Fishing.
