The best walleye fishing has been in the area near the US/Canada border
where "F" can was, around Kelleys Island shoal, and the Toledo shipping
channel near the harbor light. Drifting mayfly rigs and trolling spoons or
worm harnesses produce the most fish. Walleye hatched in 2003 (ranging in
size from 6 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 from Ballast Island to Gull Island Shoal,
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.
