Walleye fishing continues to be excellent with many limits being caught. The best fishing has been nearshore from the Toledo water intake to Crane Creek in 19 to 21’ of water, N of West Sister Island, west of Green and Rattlesnake Islands, W of the SW corner of Kelleys Island, and on the dumping grounds N-NE of Cedar Point. Drifters are using mayfly rigs or worm harnesses with bottom bouncers, while trollers are using worm harnesses with inline weights or bottom bouncers and jet or dipsy divers with spoons. The best spoon colors have been patterns that include gold and purple or red.
The best yellow perch fishing in the western basin has been around the Toledo water intake and NE of Ballast Island. Perch spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
