Lake Erie Fishing Report - July 2022

Lake Erie: Walleye fishing was slow. Anglers were going to the same places with the same gear and only about half were coming back successful with full limits with the other half getting half limits or less. Anglers that were getting them were still going three miles straight out from Fermi in 19 to 21 feet using suspended crawler harnesses off the bottom about four feet. Pink and silver, and reds remained good colors for the harness blades. Another spot that showed a bit of promise was four and a half miles out from Luna Pier where walleye were hitting on purple or orange flicker shad lures. A few anglers were targeting yellow perch with mild to low success using minnow rigs in about 15 feet of water. Bass fishing for largemouth and smallmouth bass was good on artificial lure bass rigs closer to shore.

Lake Erie: Anglers were battling algae blooms and strong winds outside of Fermi. Fish were scattered; however, a few people were still catching them on crawler harnesses in 18 to 21 feet of water. Silver for the harness blade was popular in that area. Those going south to the dumping grounds out from Luna Pier saw mild successes running crawler harnesses still, but with the weather fishing was slow. Yellow perch fishing has yet to pick up in mass, but early anglers were catching them on minnows closer into shore, around 10 to 12 feet. Smallmouth bass fishing has been steadily picking up with anglers catching them on artificial lures.
