Where: Rough lake conditions slowed down the excellent fishing this past week. The best areas to try are in 68 to 75 feet of water north of Edgewater Park, in 68 to 75 feet of water north of Wildwood Park, in 70 feet of water north of Fairport Harbor, and in 70 to 75 feet of water north of Lakeshore Park in Ashtabula. Fish are suspended and anglers are targeting fishing depths of 50 to 60 feet down in the water column, above the thermocline.
How: Walleye have been caught trolling using crankbaits or spoons with planer boards, dipsy and jet divers. Try using bright colors including blue, purple, and bronze.
