Western Basin |
Walleye fishing slowed over the past week (as of 6/28). The best reports came from West Sister Island, Niagara Reef, and the area around Lucy’s Point of Middle Bass Island. Fish have been caught by trolling with divers and spoons, and also on inline weights with worm harnesses. Fish can also be caught by casting mayfly rigs or drifting with bottom bouncers and worm harnesses.
Yellow perch fishing is improving. The best areas have been around Ballast Island, Lakeside, and the SE corner of Kelleys Island. Anglers are using spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom.
Bass: There have been good catches of largemouth bass reported from the harbors and nearshore areas from Catawba to Marblehead.
