iLAKEERIE Lake Erie Western Basin Fishing Report  

February 20, 2019 -  Stable ice conditions are providing ice fishing off the North side of South Bass Island / Put-in-Bay, but is only accessible from the island.  Limit catches of walleye including many larger fish in the late evening.  Ice conditions off places like Catawba State Park and Crane Creek are very jumbled with open water areas, so no ice fishing is taking place off the mainland.  Weather forecast for the rest of February does not have any major cold spells, so we doubt mainland ice fishing will return.

We are looking forward to the 2019 open water season and updating this fishing report to a more modern interactive format which will allowing people to post their own reports.
