Lake Erie fishing report

Capt. Kendal Parsley on Drift Away Charters guided his party to this catch of walleye.

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.
