Anglers are fishing for walleye on the reef complex north of Camp Perry, the
Bass Islands area, around Marblehead, the Maumee Bay area, and N of Kelleys
Island. Surface temperatures range from the lower 40's to near 50 degrees.
Over the past weekend (4/17) walleye were caught by jigging the reefs,
Maumee Bay and the Turtle Creek area, and larger females were caught
trolling near the reefs and N of Kelleys Island. Trollers did well in the
area around the "D" can of Camp Perry Firing Range. Popular spring
techniques include jigging shallow reef areas with shiner-tipped jigs or
trolling crankbaits in open water surrounding the reefs. When fishing the
reef complex be aware that ODNR sampling will be taking place throughout the
spring. Nets are clearly marked with yellow flags and floats. Please stay
clear of areas with nets.
