Walleye fishing was excellent through the past weekend (as of 3/27/12). Recent cold, windy weather has temporarily slowed fishing. Anglers trolling around the reefs and outer buoys of the Camp Perry firing range have had success with crankbaits in the top 15’ of water; deep husky jerks, ripsticks, and reef runners 30-60’ back at 1.0-1.6 miles per hour are working best. Jig fishing is picking up, particularly in 8-14’ of water along the shoreline from Davis-Besse to Turtle Creek and also on some of the reefs in the Camp Perry firing range.|
Yellow perch are being caught around Marblehead.
