Walleye fishing in the western basin picked up last week following several days of good weather. A few walleye continue to be caught on the reefs although success has been minimal. Anglers caught fish in clean water throughout the western basin (outside of the Camp Perry firing range, around the Bass Islands, and north of Kelleys Island) trolling Reef Runner crankbaits 140-160' behind planer boards. Some walleye were caught on crawler harnesses, but crankbaits were still dominant. Yellow perch fishing is starting to pick up in traditional early spring spots in water depths ranging from 25'-35' using minnows on perch spreaders fished near the bottom.
