iLAKEERIE Lake Erie Western Basin Fishing Report  

We are nearing the end of the fishing season for most people.  Reports from now through early November may be spotty as most of our reporters are ending their seasons and weather generally isn't as nice (wind, cold, and rain).

Thursday October 29:

Walleye:  Water temperatures are low enough that walleye are now all over the Western Basin.  Try trolling around shoals and reefs or casting crank baits on the reefs and shoals in the evening.  The South Passage area should be holding some fish.

Yellow Perch:  The Camp Perry range east G and H cans continue to produce and should the rest of the season.  The bite may be light, so pay close attention.  Also out east of the Toledo Channel Lighthouse and the Water Intake.  With the cold water temperatures you shouldn't have to go out far.
