Walleye fishing remained slow with few reports coming from the western basin. The best reports came from the reef complex, N of West Sister Island and NW of Gull Island Shoal. 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 continues to be good in the western basin. The best areas have been W of West Sister Island around the gravel pit, NE of the turnaround buoy of the Toledo shipping channel, around “B” can of the Camp Perry firing range, SW of South Bass Island, off of Ballast Island, and N of Lakeside. Anglers are using spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom.
