West of the islands walleye fishing picked up in shallow water (12 to 22’) off of Crane Creek. Fish were also caught off of “B” can of the Camp Perry firing range and east of Kelleys Island. Drifting with bottom bouncers and worm harnesses or casting mayfly rigs has been productive. Trollers have been catching fish on spoons with divers, or worm harnesses fished with inline weights, snap weights, bottom bouncers, or divers. The best spoon colors have been pinks and purples.
The best yellow perch fishing has been off of Lakeside and Cedar Point. Perch spreaders or crappie rigs with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
