Walleye fishing was good through the past weekend (as of 4/18/12). Anglers trolling around the reefs and outer buoys of the Camp Perry firing range, near Crib Reef, and D-can have had success with crankbaits in the top 15’ of water; deep husky jerks, deep rogues, and reef runners 20-60’ back at 1.0-1.5 miles per hour are working best. Jig fishing has slowed after the wind storms this weekend, but has been best along the shoreline from Davis-Besse to Turtle Creek and on some of the reefs in the Camp Perry firing range, especially Crib Reef and Locust Reef.|
Yellow Perch – some yellow perch have been caught near the Marblehead Lighthouse to the southeast corner of Kelley’s Island. Perch spreaders or crappie rigs with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
