Walleye fishing continues to be excellent with many limits being caught. The best fishing has been near the Canadian border SE of Middle Sister Island near the old “F” and “G” cans, and also NW of the Toledo shipping channel turnaround buoy. Drifters are using mayfly rigs or worm harnesses with bottom bouncers, while trollers are using worm harnesses with inline weights or bottom bouncers and jet or dipsy divers with spoons. The best spoon colors have been patterns that include gold or purples.
The best yellow perch fishing in the western basin has been NW of Kelleys Island, E of Kelleys Island, and N of Kelleys Island around Gull and Kelleys Island shoals. Perch spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
