Walleye fishing in the western basin is slowly picking up. Jigging on the Camp Perry reefs and trolling the open water east of the reefs has produced decent catches. As the water warms expect jig fishing to keep improving on most of the Camp Perry reefs and in nearshore areas all the way from Maumee Bay to Cedar Point. Larger female walleye can be caught by trolling minnow imitating stickbaits in the open water around the reefs and islands.

Surface temperatures currently range from 39 to 49 degrees.
