Walleye fishing has been good in the western basin recently. The best walleye fishing has been from North Bass Island and Niagara Reef to “F” can on the Canadian border, and on Lucy’s Point of Middle Bass Island. Fish have been caught by casting worm harnesses or weight forward spinners, and trollers have had success with spoons on jet divers or dipsys.
The best yellow perch fishing has been around the northern cans (A, B, and C) of the Camp Perry range, north of the Toledo water intake, at the Toledo Harbor Light, near the turnaround buoy of the Toledo shipping channel, off Gull Island Shoal, off of Kelleys Island shoal, north of the Marblehead lighthouse and north of Cedar Point. Perch spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish that have averaged around 8 inches with several catches averaging in the 9-10 inch range.
