** The daily bag limit for Lake Erie walleye is 6 fish. The minimum size limit for walleye is 15”. ** |
Walleye fishing in the western basin has been slow over the last week due to inconsistent weather, particularly for this time of the year. A few walleye continue to be caught on the reefs although success has been minimal. Trollers have catching post-spawn fish throughout the western basin (outside of the Camp Perry firing range, around the Bass Islands, and north of Kelleys Island); however, muddy water conditions have limited trolling success. Yellow 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.
