Where: Ice anglers have been catching walleye west and northwest of Catawba Island, between Catawba Island and South Bass Island, 3 to 7 miles north from Cooley Canal to Magee Marsh, and to a lesser extent west of South Bass Island around Green and Rattlesnake Islands. Be cautious when ice fishing the offshore areas of Lake Erie, as ice conditions can change quickly due to water currents and wind. Wind and warmer temperatures the week of February 17 changed ice conditions, especially around Mouse Island. Travel with caution and regularly check ice conditions before proceeding.
How: Most Lake Erie ice anglers targeting walleye are using jigging spoons tipped with emerald shiners.
