Where: Fishing slowed over the past week as wind and waves reduced water clarity, and colder temperatures limited fish activity. Anglers trolling caught fish west of Catawba, east of Middle Bass Island, and north of Kelleys Island, including deep water around Kelleys Island Shoal. Anglers jigging are still catching fish in Maumee Bay, nearshore around Turtle Creek and Wild Wings marina, and on the reefs of the Camp Perry firing range.
