**From May 1 through Friday June 24 there is a no-possession season for
smallmouth bass on Lake Erie. Anglers can legally target smallmouth
bass, but they must be immediately returned to the water.**

Western Basin

The best walleye fishing has been W and N of North Bass Island, outside
of Maumee Bay, around Niagara reef of the Camp Perry firing range, and N
of Kelleys Island. Drifting or trolling worm harnesses and trolling
crankbaits or spoons produce the most fish.

Yellow Perch
Yellow perch fishing has been best near the Marblehead lighthouse, near
the Sandusky Bay foghorn, and E of Kelleys 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.
