iLAKEERIE Lake Erie Western Basin Fishing Report  

Monday, September 04, Labor Day: 

Walleye:  No reports.  Everyone seems to have switched to Yellow Perch fishing.  Most walleye fishing is now in the Central Basin, Huron east.  Western Basin try east / northeast of Kelleys Island way out in deeper water; up along the Canadian line from West Sister Island to Kelleys Island; and north / NE of Cedar Point.  Trolling works best this time of year but drift fishing can also be successful.  Evening fishing just off reefs and shoals can also produce.

Yellow Perch:  Good to limit catches around the east side of the Camp Perry range, H and G cans.  Decent to good catches between Green and Rattlesnake Islands as well as off the east side of South Bass Island SE of the Monument.  No reports from the Toledo Water Intake / Lighthouse area.
