The walleye spawning season is ending and fish are migrating towards summer locations. Over the past week the best fishing has been in the area west of South Bass Island between Green Island and Rattlesnake Island, and along the Canadian border from North Bass Island to Gull Island Shoal. Drifting with worm harnesses or casting mayfly rigs will be productive as fish move off of spawning grounds and into surrounding open water. Trollers have been catching fish on worm harnesses fished with inline weights, snap weights, or divers. Crankbaits and spoons are also catching fish.|
Based on the nearshore forecast the water temperature is 55 off of Toledo and 52 off of Cleveland.
