LAKESIDE- MARBLEHEAD, Ohio- Given the headline and the season (and my occupation in a previous lifetime), you may have guessed this story is football-related. However, nothing could be further from the truth, which is a good description of most fishing stories. My September nights took place at the East Harbor State Park campground near Lake Erie, without a football in sight.

This was my first camping trip to Lake Erie since an attempt to enjoy an East Harbor outing in July. That adventure ended abruptly before I had a chance to pitch my tent. Upon arriving at East Harbor, I decided to go fishing before I set up camp. My three-day campout came to a grinding halt when I plowed my boat’s prop into an unmarked rock reef on the southern side of South Bass Island.
