Over the past week walleye were caught west of Green Island and Rattlesnake Island, between Green Island and Catawba Island, and most recently about 1.5 miles south of “F” can of the Camp Perry firing range. Trollers are using crankbaits such as Reef Runners and Rapala Deep Husky Jerks. Most walleye are caught in the fall by trolling crankbaits in open water or by fishing at night nearshore and around piers. Fall yellow perch fishing can also produce some of the best catches of the season. Most perch anglers fish around the islands or within a few miles of the ports from Huron to Conneaut.|
