Central Basin |
Walleye fishing has been fair in 72 to 75� NE of Conneaut. Anglers are fishing down 54-60�. Trollers are using pink, yellow, red, green, copper spoons and stick baits off dipsy divers, planer boards and jet divers.
Yellow perch fishing has been good 9 miles N of Vermilion, around the 31N/13 to 14W lines off of Lorain, 34-38� N-NW of Edgewater Park, 38-40� NW and NE of Wildwood State Park, 50-53� NW of Fairport Harbor (the hump) and 48-52� NW and NE of Ashtabula. Perch spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
White bass fishing has been fair off the Eastlake CEI and Fairport Piers. Always difficult to predict when they will come in close to shore. Anglers are using agitators and small yellow or white jigs along with small spinners. Mornings and evenings have been the best.
Based on the nearshore forecast the water temperature is 65 degrees off of Toledo and 68 degrees off of Cleveland.
