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.
