Walleye fishing slowed over the past week. The best fishing was around the turnaround buoy of the Toledo shipping channel, around “A” can of the Camp Perry firing range, and N of Crane Creek. 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 fishing is improving around the islands with the best areas being W of Rattlesnake Island, N of Kelleys Island and W of Kelleys Island. Perch spreaders or crappie rigs with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
