Cold temperatures and strong wind continued to limit main lake access during the week of 4/9. When conditions allowed walleye were caught on hair jigs tipped with minnows nearshore from Turtle Creek to Wild Wings marina in less than 15’ of water and also on many of the Camp Perry reefs. As the water warms expect jig fishing to heat up on most of the Camp Perry reefs and in nearshore areas all the way from Maumee Bay to Cedar Point. Trollers have had success with minnow imitating stickbaits and deep diving crankbaits along the eastern and northern cans of the Camp Perry firing range and also around the Bass Islands.|
Surface temperatures are currently around 39 degrees.
