** The daily bag limit for Lake Erie walleye is 6 fish. The minimum size limit for walleye is 15”. ** |
Walleye have been caught sporadically by anglers jigging nearshore from Maumee Bay to Port Clinton, and also on the Camp Perry reef complex. Trollers have caught post-spawn fish outside of the Camp Perry firing range, around the Bass Islands, and north of Kelleys Island. Muddy water from the islands to Toledo has limited trolling success. Perch fishing is starting to pick up in traditional early spring spots in water depths ranging from 25'-35' using minnows on perch spreaders fished near the bottom.
