Lake Erie finally seems to be settling down from the super summer storms we had in late June and Walleye have been biting in a variety of places. One area that has been holding decent numbers of fish recently is the deep water between Middle Bass and Pelee Islands. Fish have been caught in water as shallow as 9-10 ft. of water on the east point of Middle Bass to as deep at 42 ft. of water which is just about a half mile east of the green “Bell” buoy. East from that point all the way to Middle Island has produced decent Walleye. The border also lies in this area so know which side of the line you are on if you are fishing without Ontario licenses. Trolling has worked well in this area but most boats were casting worm harnesses or weapons. The reefs north of Kelleys Island have also been producing some larger Walleye in 11-25 ft. of water.
