ODNR Lake Erie Western Basin Fishing Report 5/21/03

Northeast winds over the past week have led to stained waters around most of
the western basin. Walleye fishing has been best on the reef complex near
Port Clinton, Clinton Reef west of Catawba, and Gull Island Shoal north of
Kelley's Island. Purple jigs are still producing some limit catches on the
reef complex. In open water areas weight forward spinners or bottom
bouncers with a worm harness and gold blade have been productive. The
majority of walleye caught have ranged from 17 to 25", with a few fish
around 30".

Yellow perch have been caught northwest of Kelley's Island and around
Clinton Reef west of Catawba. Spreaders tipped with shiners have been most
productive for 8 to 11" fish.

Kelley's Island and the Bass Islands have continued to be the best areas to
catch smallmouth bass. Brown salted tube jigs and soft craws have been used
to catch fish between 15 and 20".
