** The daily bag limit for walleye on Ohio waters of Lake Erie is 6 fish. The minimum size limit for walleye is 15”. **|
Walleye fishing is improving and has been best around West Sister Island, N of West Reef, between North Bass Island and Kelleys Island, and E of Kelleys Island. Fish have been caught by trolling with divers and spoons, inline weights and worm harnesses, and crankbaits. Fish can also be caught by casting mayfly rigs or drifting with bottom bouncers and worm harnesses.
Yellow perch fishing has been best E of Ballast Island, E of the Kelleys Island airport, and S of Gull Island Shoal using minnows on perch spreaders fished near the bottom.
Walleye has been very good NW of Lorain in 46’ of water, 50-62’ N of Edgewater Park, 52-60’ NW of Gordon Park, 50’ NW of Fairport Harbor, 60’ NW of Geneva and 30’ NW of Conneaut. Anglers are using inline weights, jet divers, and dipsy divers with orange, pink, green, and silver spoons. Anglers are also using worm harnesses.
Perch spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish. Shore anglers are catching fish off East 55 St Pier in Cleveland and Headlands Beach Pier out at the lighthouse
and Fairport Harbor Pier. Anglers are using spreaders with shiners and the mornings have been best. Anglers are catching catfish and white perch in the Grand River. Look for white bass to begin heating up at Eastlake CEI breakwall.
According to the nearshore marine forecast the water temperature is 68 degrees off of Toledo and 58 degrees off of Cleveland.
Anglers are encouraged to always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device while boating.
