Western Basin


Where: Fishing slowed over the past week as wind and waves reduced water clarity, and colder temperatures limited fish activity. Anglers trolling caught fish west of Catawba, east of Middle Bass Island, and north of Kelleys Island, including deep water around Kelleys Island Shoal. Anglers jigging are still catching fish in Maumee Bay, nearshore around Turtle Creek and Wild Wings marina, and on the reefs of the Camp Perry firing range.

How: Anglers trolling have caught fish using crankbaits (Rapala Deep Husky Jerks, deep diving Reef Runners, and Smithwick Perfect 10 Rogues) and are starting to use worm harnesses with inline weights or bottom bouncers. Anglers jigging are catching fish on hair jigs and blade baits.
