iLAKEERIE Lake Erie Western Basin Fishing Report  

Monday May 16: 

Walleye:  No update, Monday was good to limit catches trolling the west side of the Reef Complex to Maumee Bay.  The South Passage also was good in the early morning but the bite slowed by mid-morning.  Drift fishing is just starting but calm water made it tough after mid-morning but produced pretty well in the early morning.  Lots of walleye in the Western Basin.  The trick as usual is finding feeding fish and what they want that day.

Yellow Perch:  No report.  Generally no perch reports until later in May.
