Walleye fishing is improving in the western basin of Lake Erie. The
best walleye fishing has been W of West Sister Island, on the gravel pit
7 miles N of Ward's canal, and around the Toledo water intake. Drifting
or trolling worm harnesses and trolling spoons produce the most fish.
Yellow perch fishing has been slow. The best areas have been NW of
Kelleys Island, around Gull Island Shoal, and N of Niagara Reef. Fish
just off the bottom using perch spreaders tipped with shiners.
The best smallmouth bass fishing has been around the Bass Islands,
Kelleys Island and Sandusky Bay. Largemouth bass have been caught in
Sandusky Bay, East Harbor and West Harbor.
