** The daily bag limit for Lake Erie walleye is 6 fish per angler. The minimum size limit for walleye is 15. **

** The Lake Erie black bass (largemouth and smallmouth) daily bag limit is 5 fish per angler with a minimum size limit of 14.**

Walleye fishing was excellent the weekend of 12/4 from Ruggles Reef to Cedar Point. Most anglers were trolling crankbaits in the top 15 feet of the water column. The size of fish has been excellent with most fish weighing from 4 to 9 pounds with some as large as 12 pounds. Recent (12/7/10) winds and low temperatures have ended most open water fishing. Protected harbors are beginning to ice over making launches treacherous. Reports from the shoreline piers have been inconsistent.

Based on the nearshore forecast the water temperature is 34 degrees off of Toledo and 41 degrees off of Cleveland.
