|The lake is still producing walleye and there is very little mayfly activity on the lake. This weekend has been a wet one but it was still fishable. Although the size of the walleye are now running a little smaller from the 2004 hatch, there are still good eyes from the 2003 hatch being caught east of Kelley’s and in the Canadian waters. The rock piles around the island area are producing , but large eyes are coming out of those rocks. Further west a lot of sorting is being made, but that’s a very good sign for the next few years. Reports of this years hatch being caught while perch fishing, please release those with wet hands so they have a chance to grow.|
Still the harnesses are the best baits for the casters, and spoons along with dipsys and jets still are working well for the trollers. The walleyes have varied from the bottom up to 20feet in 30 plus foot of water, based on the bait fish location. The sheephead are very active, that you can guarantee catching 6-10 for every walleye caught. Just remember to bring a lot of bait.
The perch packs are really starting to form. Over the weekend, the perch boats were located off the loading docks, east of ballast, south of Kelley’s, off of Green, and around the entrance area of Sandusky Bay. There is still a good supply of minnows at the local bait shops.
Bass fishing is still spotty, but should increase as we get into August. We still have some great dates open for the remainder of the year, at 1-877-434-9711.
