** The daily bag limit for Lake Erie walleye is 4 fish per angler March 1 through April 30. On May 1 the limit will return to 6 fish per day. The minimum size limit for walleye is 15”. **|
Spring walleye fishing on western Lake Erie is under way however, wind and waves over the past week have limited fishing activity. Pending weather, fish have been caught with hair jigs tipped with shiners in Maumee Bay, inshore of the reef complex in 8-15' of water in and around Turtle Reef, and on the reef complex in the Camp Perry firing range. Trollers have caught post-spawn fish along the northern and eastern buoys of the Camp Perry firing range trolling stick baits. Perch fishing is starting to pick up in traditional early spring spots in water depths ranging from 25'-35' using minnows on perch spreaders fished near the bottom.
