Who flipped the switch? After a very tough run the last few weeks due to the weather, things changed dramatically this past week. The weather was nice and the Walleye fishing was simply awesome. It was as if the entire western basin came to life. The drifters had a ball catching limit catches in many areas. Best areas were around the �ditch� in Toledo, around A and D can�s, N.W. of West Sister Island and in many near shore areas anywhere from Port Clinton clear to Toledo. Most all of the Walleyes are being caught right on the bottom with bottom bouncer rigs and nightcrawlers. The trollers have been limiting out easily in the flats just north of the reefs. The best area by far is the deep water between C and B cans. We finished our last three trips Fri., Sat., and Sun. at the western basin by trolling and limited out easily with nice Walleyes. On Friday we had a huge Walleye that measured 32� and was built like a barrel! I�m guessing the fish went around 12 pounds. All of these fish were caught deep as well. We were running #20 Jet Divers, 160 ft. back with Stinger Spoons. As I write this report, �The Trophy� is back home in her port of Ashtabula, OH. We ran the boat back on Sunday afternoon after our charter on a beautiful, flat lake. We even went out for a couple hours on Monday and caught 3 big Walleyes just N.W. of the harbor. This is a great sign and things should take off as always. Once again, I really enjoyed doing these Spring fishing reports. I just get too busy to keep it up the rest of the summer. I hope to do them again next year.
