Anglers are starting to fish the Camp Perry firing range reef complex,|
the Bass Islands area, and nearshore 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. Recent
surface temperatures have been in the mid 30's.
Walleye fishing in the Maumee and Sandusky Rivers is slowly improving.
