Walleye fishing has been excellent at times in the past week. The best jig fishing continues to be in Maumee Bay, nearshore from Crane Creek to Locust Point, around “K” can of the Camp Perry range, and on the reefs of the Camp Perry firing range. The best jigs have been purple, chartreuse or orange hair jigs tipped with shiners. Trollers are catching fish around Rattlesnake Island, North Bass Island, and north of Kelleys Island. The best trolling lures have been worm harnesses with inline weights or snap weights, and both shallow and deep diving crankbaits in Pink Lemonade and Wonderbread color patterns.|
Based on the nearshore forecast the water temperature is 55 off of Toledo and 46 off of Cleveland.
