iLAKEERIE Lake Erie Western Basin Fishing Report  

Fishing has slowed to the point where there aren't daily reports.  We will post reports as they are available until fishing all but ends, probably mid-November.  Winter like cold weather predicted through next week (November 09-16) so probably very little fishing other than off the piers for walleye.

Friday November 09:

WALLEYE  Good to limit catches shoreline / pier fishing sunset through the night casting crank baits.  For boat fishing try trolling just off and on shallow shoals and reefs around the Islands during the day and just offshore in the late evening.

YELLOW PERCH -  No reports.  Try around the Camp Perry range G and H cans off Port Clinton.

SMALLMOUTH BASS - Nobody fishing, no reports.

OTHER SPECIES Late fall season - Catfish and sheepshead can still be caught in Sandusky Bay and the other bays and river mouths fishing on the bottom or near the bottom with live bait.  Bullhead try the shallower parts of bays and in the various marshes.  For panfish and largemouth bass fish the harbors and dock areas as well as nearshore areas.
