Western Basin-

Catches of 22 to 28" trophy walleye have continued around Kelley's Island,
while limit catches of 14 to 20" fish have increased in the West Sister
Island area. Around Kelley's Island large fish are being caught NE of the
island near Kelley's Island Shoal and also SE of the island by trolling or
drifting bottom bouncers and crawler harnesses with gold or purple blades.
In the west fish are being caught near West Sister Island and on the Gravel
Pit, an area with gravel substrate about 6 miles NE of Cooley Canal. The
best catches have come on crawler harnesses with gold blades or weight
forward spinners.
Yellow perch fishing is improving in the area around Kelley's Island. Fish
are being caught near Kelley's Island shoal, east of Kelley's Island and
also south of the island in 25 to 35 feet of water. Spreaders tipped with
shiners have been most productive for 7 to 13" fish.
Kelley's Island and the Bass Islands have produced the best smallmouth bass
catches. Tube jigs and soft craws have been used to catch fish between 15
and 20".
