Regulations to Remember: |
The daily bag limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie is six fish per angler. The minimum size limit for walleye is 15 inches.
Walleye: Recent weather has limited fishing opportunities.
Where: Most walleye anglers have been fishing nearshore from Ruggles Reef to Cedar Point.
Where: For some of the biggest perch of the year try traditional fall spots such as the green buoy off Catawba State Park; Green and Rattlesnake Islands; Ballast Island; Kelleys Island shoal; east of Kelleys Island airport; between Kelleys Island and Lakeside; the Marblehead Lighthouse; north of Cedar Point; the south end of the sandbar offshore between Vermilion and Lorain; and just off most of the ports from Huron to Conneaut.
Where: Bass start moving shallow to feed as water temperatures drop. Try fishing rocky areas along both island and mainland shorelines to find feeding smallmouth bass. Areas with gizzard shad, shiners or gobies will be best.
Anglers are encouraged to always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device while boating.
