Central Basin

Walleye have been caught in the evenings in 15-25� around the Cleveland breakwalls. Anglers are using stick baits such as rapalas, husky jerks, and bombers.

Yellow perch fishing has been fair to average 36-40� NW of Gordon Park in Cleveland, 25-28� NW of Wildwood State Park, 44-52� NW of Fairport Harbor and 42� NE of Geneva.

Perch spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. Shore anglers are catching fish off East 55 St Pier in Cleveland and Headlands Beach Pier out at the lighthouse.

Anglers are using spreaders with shiners and the mornings have been best.

Smallmouth bass fishing has been very good in 15 to 25� around harbor areas in Cleveland, Fairport Harbor, Geneva, Ashtabula and Conneaut. Fish are being caught on soft-craws, leeches, tube jigs, blade baits and crank baits.
