Walleye starting in Leamington area. See some of latest reports below. The Lake Erie fishing reports are indicating a great year ahead.
Report for Saturday May 31 – Northwest of West Sister. It was way more the West way.
Set up 2 drifts and caught the 12 by 10:30 and we were out there at about 6am.
Using worm harnesses and bottom bouncers. Most were on the bottom or around 10 feet above or so. One pig was caught on a bouncer. We stuck around another half hour and caught 2 more for fun.
Then Sunday went out in the afternoon to the same area and only caught 2. That Northeast Sat. night and Sun. morning.
Fellow angler reports – did the exact same thing the exact same day and had similar results. We hit the bottom bouncers more west than north of West Sister. Out there at 7:00 done at 11:00, 10 eyes in the box, 9 came on silver worm harnesses. All fish were 17″ to 19″.
Walleye fishing was good in the western basin during the week of May 25. The best fishing continues to be at the island complex including North Bass Island, from Green Island to Rattlesnake Island, and around Kelleys Island. Farther west the fishing has been good north of West Sister Island and around the gravel pit. Drifters are using bottom bouncers with worm harnesses or are casting mayfly rigs. Trollers were catching fish on crankbaits, worm harnesses fished with inline weights or bottom bouncers, and also on spoons fished with dipsy divers or jet divers.
Yellow perch fishing has been best off of Cedar Point and around Kelleys Island. Perch spreaders or crappie rigs with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
The best smallmouth bass reports have come from Kelleys Island.
