Western Basin

The best walleye fishing has been in the area near the US/Canada border
south of Middle Sister Island to "G" can, and from Middle Sister Island to
the Turnaround buoy of the Toledo shipping channel. Drifting mayfly rigs
and trolling spoons or worm harnesses produce the most fish. Walleye
hatched in 2003 (ranging in size from 5 to 10 inches) are already being
caught. Please handle these sub-legal fish as gently as possible and
quickly return them to the water.

Yellow Perch
Yellow perch fishing has been best at the Kelleys Island airport reef and
around Ballast Island. Fish just off the bottom using perch spreaders
tipped with shiners.

Smallmouth Bass
The best smallmouth bass fishing has been around the Bass Islands, Kelleys
Island and Sandusky Bay.
