Lake Erie's western basin lost most of its ice this past weekend.|
Anglers are starting to fish the Camp Perry firing range reef complex
and nearshore areas from Toledo to Marblehead. During March and April
walleye can be caught by jigging on the reefs or by trolling the open
water flats around the reefs. Early in the season extreme caution is
necessary with sub 40 degree surface temperatures. Boaters should dress
appropriately and always wear life jackets.
Walleye fishing in the Maumee and Sandusky Rivers is slowly improving.
