The Lake Erie walleye fishing remains strong and is now expanding into different areas. In the mix this week has been the waters along the Canadian border between Middle Island and North Bass Island. There is a lot of sorting going on, but there are plenty of walleye being caught that are 15 inches or longer. There are plenty of limits to be had.

Northwest of West Sister Island up to the Canadian line has come on strong as the place to be with lots of fast-casting limits being caught. Trollers have been having their best luck West of North Bass Island about three miles out and also Northeast of Kelleys Island. Tru-Trip Diving Planers and spoons are still best lures for a quick limit of walleye. We are setting these 35 to 45 feet back with trolling speeds of 2 to 2.4 miles per hour.

Sandusky Bay is still continuously producing channel catfish with the main focus being around the Edison Bridge. Raw shrimp is still the best bait to be using right now. Along the entrance to the Portage River has also been producing some catfish.

This weeks report is pretty much to the point, so until next week, stay safe out there, be courteous of other boaters and get out and fish!
