Western Basin

Walleye fishing has been slow. Expect fishing to improve as the large
2003 year class begins to surpass the 15" minimum size limit. The best
walleye fishing has been W of West Sister Island, around the Toledo
water intake, S of "F" can on the Canadian border, and along the
northern border of the Camp Perry firing range from "A" can to "C" can.
Drifting or trolling worm harnesses and trolling spoons produce the most

Yellow Perch
Perch fishing has remained slow, but occasional decent catches have come
from NW of Kelleys Island and S of "F" can on the Canadian border. A
perch spreader tipped with shiners is the most popular set-up.

Smallmouth Bass
The best smallmouth bass fishing has been around the Bass Islands,
Kelleys Island and Sandusky Bay. Largemouth bass have been caught in
Sandusky Bay, East Harbor and West Harbor.
