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 and E towards Northwest Reef (W of North Bass Island). Walleye are
also still 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 in the Western basin has been excellent. Best areas
have included the C can area of the Camp Perry firing range, between Kelleys
Island and Lakeside, and in the area N of the Toledo water intake. Spreaders
tipped with shiners have been most productive for 7 to 11" fish.
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 continues to
be good in East Harbor around thick beds of vegetation and in the harbor
