*Recent winds have produced rough, hazardous conditions and also reduced
water clarity in the western basin. Be sure to check the latest marine
forecast for up-to-date lake conditions.*

Western Basin-

No walleye fishing reports have been received in the past week. If the
weather stabilizes walleye fishing should improve in the Bass Islands area
and in the area between Kelleys Island and the Huron River.
Perch fishing in the western basin has continued to be excellent when
conditions have allowed. Wind protected areas around the Marblehead
lighthouse and SE of Kelleys Island in 20 to 30 feet of water have been
excellent, along with the West Sister Island area and the turnaround buoy of
the Toledo shipping channel. Spreaders tipped with shiners have been most
productive for 7 to 12" fish.
For smallmouth bass try fishing Kelleys Island shoal, Gull Island shoal, and
nearshore areas around the Bass Islands, Kelleys Island and Marblehead.
