Capt. Bob Brown Jr's Lake Erie fishing report

Jared Rhode of Port Clinton and two of his Bass from the Rayovac FLW Lake Erie Bass tournament over the weekend.

Lake Erie fishing has been improving all week in the local areas around the islands as some of the algal bloom we have been talking about has moved east and opened up a cleaner water area around Kelleys Island allowing some good fishing to be had for both walleye and yellow perch. Walleye were biting around South Bass and Kelleys Island in the shallow waters around reefs and drop offs in 11-24 ft. of water. Crawler harnesses or weight forward spinners like Tiny Teasers or Crooked Eye were working. Green and yellow lures were the best tipped with night crawlers.

Lake Erie walleye fishing continues to be spotty. Trolling for walleye was producing some decent catches off of the west side of Pelee Island in 24 to 32 feet of water.  Walleye were biting north of Vermilion 7 to 10 miles from shore in 38 to 52 feet of water. Trolling was the preferred method for producing numbers of fish. The casters were catching some also in these areas.
