Lake Erie Western Basin Fishing Report

Ron Cooper from Columbus shows off his 29" Walleye caught on the Sundance with Capt. Bob Brown, Jr.

Walleye fishing in the Western Basin of Lake Erie can be a challenge at times and this week was no exception! The rollercoaster weather pattern of this past week has changed the feeding places and patterns that were becoming normal just a short week ago. When consistent fair weather holds this time of year, Walleye will get into a predictable pattern on where they will be and when they bite the best. This week has been the exact opposite, with turbulent stormy conditions at times and radical wind shifts from one day to the next. Hence the challenge for Lake Erie’s seasoned group of local captains, who have been pulling out all the stops to put their customers on hungry fish.


Ohio, Michigan and Ontario partner to strengthen Lake Erie water quality

Building upon historic changes undertaken earlier this year to improve Lake Erie water quality, Ohio has reached an agreement with Michigan and the Canadian province of Ontario to achieve a 40 percent reduction in the amount of phosphorus entering Lake Erie’s western basin by 2025. When too much phosphorus enters the water through sources such as fertilizers, animal manure or sewage treatment plants, water becomes polluted leading to algal blooms and public health warnings.


Capt Bob Brown Jr.'s Lake Erie Walleye Fishing Report

Larry McCouley with friends and family from Cincinnati with their walleye.

Due to strong NE winds last weekend,  the key to finding the biting fish this week in the Lake Erie Island area was all about finding somewhat cleaner water. Find the cleaner water, and you were in position to score on some nice sized Walleye. Charter boats casting were finding nice sized Walleye on shallow water reefs north of Kelleys Island, West reef off of North Bass Island, and on other shallow water structures around South and Middle Bass Islands. Best depths have been from 28’ up to as shallow as 6’ of water casting weight forward spinners and worm harnesses. Pink, chartreuse, or any other bright colors have been helping get more bites lately when casting these rigs in the murkier water areas. Walleye hitting the docks at Channel Grove Marina in Marblehead this week were as large as 32” and many in the 8-10 lb class.
