[ Lake Erie & Tributaries Fishing Report ]

Where: Fishing was excellent this past weekend. Anglers trolling caught large fish outside of the reef complex, mostly south of "F" and "G" cans of the Camp Perry firing range, and also along the east buoys of the firing range. Anglers jigging caught fish on the reefs of the Camp Perry firing range and also in 8 to 15 feet of water along the shoreline west of the firing range.
How: For trolling using deep diving crankbaits such as Rapala deep husky jerks and Reef Runners caught fish primarily in the middle of the water column at speeds around 1 mph. Hair jigs tipped with emerald shiners are the most popular jigging lures.

The Lake Erie water temperature is 45 off Toledo and 40 off Cleveland according to the nearshore marine forecast.

Anglers are encouraged to always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device while boating.
