*Weather the week of 10/27 has been extremely windy. Information contained in the report was collected prior to the gale force winds.*
Walleye fishing effort has been low in the western basin. Try trolling or casting traditional fall areas such as the Bass Islands, Kelleys Island, Gull and Kelleys Island shoals, and nearshore areas from Port Clinton to Marblehead. As temperatures drop and baitfish school up walleye should be moving into shallow water.
Yellow Perch fishing has been good in the western basin. The best spots have been the turnaround buoy of the Toledo shipping channel, N of West Sister Island near the Canadian border, around Green and Rattlesnake Islands, E of Kelleys Island, Kelleys Island Shoal, SE of Kelleys Island, N of the Marblehead lighthouse, near the Cedar Point bell buoy, around the Catawba Island green buoy, and Gull Island shoal. Perch spreaders or crappie rigs with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
