Walleye fishing has been fair in the western basin. Recent winds have slowed the fishing down. Fish have been caught by trolling or drifting and casting around north of West Sister Island, and around the Toledo Channel marker “Sputnik”, north of “C” can in the Camp Perry firing range, and on the Canadian border W of Gull Island Shoal. Trollers have been using worm harnesses with inline weights or divers, and also divers with spoons.
Yellow perch fishing has been best around the Toledo water intake, one to five miles offshore between Metzger’s Marsh and Crane Creek, between Green and Rattlesnake Islands, and around Kelleys Island. Perch spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
