iLAKEERIE Lake Erie Western Basin Fishing Report  

Friday, July 19:

Walleye:  Low wind made drift fishing difficult, so most fishing were trolling.  Good to limit catches east of Kelleys Island / north of Sandusky.  Some decent to good catches between the Camp Perry range, and Green / Rattlesnake Islands.  Lots of undersize walleye.  Bigger fish east and farther out.  Also try up along the Canadian Border between North Bass and Kelleys Islands.

Yellow Perch:  Good to limit catches off the SE corner of the Camp Perry range as well as around the Toledo Lighthouse.  Also south and SW of Green Island still producing decent catches.  No reports from the Marblehead / SE of Kelleys Island area, which should be holding some perch.
