Where: Fishing has been excellent on Lake Erie. Anglers trolling are catching large fish outside of the reef complex around the buoys of the Camp Perry firing range and between Catawba Island and South Bass Island. Anglers jigging are catching fish on the reefs of the Camp Perry firing range and along the shoreline west of the firing range.
How: Anglers trolling are using deep diving crankbaits such as Rapala deep husky jerks and Reef Runners, primarily in the middle of the water column at speeds from 1.0 to 1.8 mph. Hair jigs tipped with emerald shiners are the most popular jigging lures.
The Lake Erie water temperature is 49 off Toledo and 42 off Cleveland according to the nearshore marine forecast.
