Walleye fishing was good in the western basin during the week of May 18. The best fishing continues to be around the island complex including N of North Bass Island, between South Bass Island and Kelleys Island, and N of Kelleys Island Shoal. Farther west the fishing has been good between Green Island and the Camp Perry firing range, N of West Sister Island, and around the gravel pit. Drifters are using bottom bouncers with worm harnesses or are casting mayfly rigs. Trollers were catching fish on crankbaits, worm harnesses fished with inline weights or bottom bouncers, and also on spoons fished with dipsy divers or jet divers.
Yellow perch fishing has been best off of Cedar Point and around Kelleys Island. Perch spreaders or crappie rigs with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
