Western Basin-

Limits of walleye continue to be caught in the West Sister Island area. The
best fishing has been NE of West Sister to the Canadian border between G can
and F can. Walleye are also being caught just N of B can and C can of the
Camp Perry firing range. Trollers using spoons with Jet or Dipsy Divers have
been most successful, with casters also catching fish on weight forward worm
harnesses. Fish have ranged from 14 to 22".
Yellow perch fishing was excellent in the past week. Best areas have
included the C can area of the Camp Perry firing range, west of the shipping
channel near the turnaround buoy, and E of Kelleys Island around the airport
reef. Spreaders tipped with shiners have been most productive for 7 to 12"
For smallmouth bass try fishing the east side of Kelleys Island and
nearshore areas around the Bass Islands and Marblehead. Tube jigs have been
used to catch fish between 15 and 20". Largemouth Bass fishing has been good
in East Harbor around thick beds of vegetation and in the harbor channel.
