With highs in the 10 day forecast all being in the 50's and 60's fishing|
should really improve in the Maumee and Sandusky Rivers and Lake Erie.
Anglers are fishing the Camp Perry firing range reef complex, the Bass
Islands area, and nearshore from Toledo to Marblehead (including Maumee
Bay and Sandusky Bay). Gale force winds over the past weekend (4/2,
4/3) greatly reduced water clarity in the western basin. Look for
transitions between dirty and clear water to find active walleye.
During March and April walleye can be caught by jigging on the reefs or
by trolling the open water flats around the reefs. Yellow perch have
also been caught recently with the Marblehead lighthouse being the most
popular spot. Use spreaders with shiners or small jigging spoons to
catch big early season perch.
Extreme caution is necessary with sub 40 degree surface temperatures.
