Walleye have been caught by anglers trolling and jigging over the past week (as of 4-8-13), although trolling over the past weekend was less productive than the prior week. Trollers have caught fish around the outer cans of the Camp Perry firing range with the southern “F” and “G” cans being best, along with “B” can and also from “E” to “D” producing fish. Rapala deep husky jerks have been the most consistent crankbait. Jigging has improved near “K” can of the Camp Perry range, and also on some of the reefs within the range. Purple hair jigs have been the lure of choice for jiggers. Please use caution when boating in cold water.
