Lake Erie Fishing Report - May 2022

Lake Erie: Due to strong winds, Breast Bay became extremely murky and was not showing great success for walleye catches. Anglers going north of Fermi near Point Mouillee in deeper waters, around 19 feet, where it is clearer, were seeing decent success with purple and white Flicker Shad lures, and purple and black Bandit lures. Also, the dumping grounds out from Luna Pier was a hot spot to catch walleye where there were still a few clear water spots. Crawler harnesses were not showing any advantage over artificial lures yet.

Lake Erie: Walleye fishing was good not far out from the rock wall out of Bartnik boat launch at Sterling State Park in 16 to 22 feet of water. Anglers were seeing success with crawler harnesses on bottom bouncers while using planar boards with 2 oz of weight 30 feet back trolling at 2mph. Yellow was a successful color. The dumping grounds to the south was a hot location for walleye. Largemouth bass anglers had great success with artificial tube PowerBaits.
