|Walleye fishing was slow west of the islands because of the recent major mayfly hatch, giving the fish ample food. |
There was some action northwest of West Sister Island, but the majority of the fish in that area are the 2003 hatch, which are running 13 to 14-1/2 inches. There was plenty of action, but not a lot of fish going in the cooler. Some of the charter boats are running 20 to 25 miles east to Lorain to drift and troll, with mixed results. I am going to head to Pelee Island in Canada in search of walleyes in the deeper water off of some of the reefs. I will give you my results in my next fish report.
