The best walleye fishing has been in the area near the US/Canada border
where "F" can was, and around Gull Island shoal between Kelleys Island and
Middle Island. Drifting mayfly rigs and trolling spoons or worm harnesses
produce the most fish. Walleye hatched in 2003 (ranging in size from 5 to
10 inches) are already being caught. Please handle these sub-legal fish as
gently as possible and quickly return them to the water.
Yellow perch fishing has been best around Gull Island Shoal, between
Marblehead and Kelleys Island, and around "C" can of the Camp Perry firing
range. Fish just off the bottom using perch spreaders tipped with shiners.
The best smallmouth bass fishing has been around the Bass Islands, Kelleys
Island and Sandusky Bay.
