Lake Erie:  Limits of walleye were caught around Buoys 1 and 2 off the River Raisin as well as straight off Stony Point and out near the Michigan-Ohio border.  Most were trolling a copper, chartreuse or lime crawler harness 50 to 60 feet back in 24 to 28 feet.  Freshwater drum, white bass, white perch and channel cats were caught throughout the lake when targeting walleye.  Largemouth bass were caught around the Toledo Beach Marina when casting crank bait.  Those fishing the Hot Ponds early to mid-morning caught a good number of channel cats in less than two hours when using shrimp for bait.

Lake Erie

Walleye fishing had picked back up in Brest Bay, off the River Raisin and up near Stony Point in 24 to 26 feet. Some managed to get limit catches when trolling a copper, purple, chartreuse or lime crawler harness with a bottom bouncer 50 to 65 feet back. Those targeting walleye have also caught white bass, white perch, some large channel cats and freshwater drum. A few perch anglers caught 20-30 fish when jigging minnows in 22 to 25 feet off Buoys 1 and 2. Those fishing the Hot Ponds were getting 15-20 channel cats in just a few hours with crawlers or minnows.
