Western Basin

Over the past week walleye fishing was slow for anglers that were casting. Trollers are still catching fish, but the action is a littler slower than past weeks. West of the islands the best fishing has been between West Sister Island and the turnaround buoy of the Toledo shipping channel, between the northern cans of the Camp Perry range and West Sister Island, and NE of Niagara Reef. Around the Island area Kelleys Island has been best with most of the fish being caught from NW or NE of the Island. Drifting with bottom bouncers and worm harnesses or casting mayfly rigs has been productive. Trollers have been catching fish on spoons with divers, or worm harnesses fished with inline weights, snap weights, bottom bouncers, or divers. The best spoon colors have been pinks and purples.

Yellow perch reports have been few and far between recently. Try the green can W of Catawba, the airport reef E of Kelleys Island, Lakeside or Cedar Point for summer yellow perch. Perch spreaders or crappie rigs with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
