Western Basin |
Walleye: The best fishing in the western basin has been NW of West Sister Island, east of Middle Sister along the Canadian border, and east of Kelleys Island. Fish were also caught at Crane Creek and B-can. Casters are using mayfly rigs or drifting bottom bouncers with worm harnesses. Trollers are catching fish on spoons and dipsys or jet divers, worm harnesses with inline weights, or with crankbaits.
Yellow perch: The best perch reports have come from between Marblehead and Kelleys Island. Perch spreaders or crappie rigs with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
