Walleye- Windy weather has continued to limit fishing opportunities over the past week (as of 11/16). There have been a few reports from N of Kelleys Island and from Cedar Point to Lorain in 25 to 45’ of water. Trolling with deep diving crankbaits has produced the most fish. There have also been reports of fish caught at night around Cleveland harbor and nearshore from Huron to Vermilion by anglers trolling shallow diving stickbaits or casting from shore.
