Central Basin |
Walleye fishing has been fair in 72 to 73� NE of Conneaut. Anglers are fishing down 54-60�. Trollers are using green, yellow, and orange spoons off dipsy divers, planer boards and jet divers.
Yellow perch fishing has been very good 9 miles N of Vermilion, around the 31N/13 to 14W lines off of Lorain, 40� N of Gordon Park (E. 72nd St), 40� and 58-61� N of Chagrin River, 50-53� NW of Fairport Harbor (the hump), 42-52� N of Geneva and 69-72� NE of Conneaut. 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 64 degrees off of Toledo and 67 degrees off of Cleveland.
