Walleye were biting around the points of Kelleys Island anywhere from 13-32’ depths casting worm harnesses was working best. Actually, the Walleye have been showing up around reef edges anywhere on the map where you have rocky bottom in the island area including the Bass Islands and Pelee Island on the Ontario side. Look for the fish to be hanging off the edges in 18-25’ mostly and then some fish out over the flat muddy bottom in 33-34’ along the border East of North Bass on down to the area NE of Kelleys Island. If you have Ontario licenses, good deep water bite has been NW of Pelee or near Wagon Wheel Reef and N of Pelee in deep water. The area W of Vermilion along the shoreline to Cranberry Creek has been producing some larger walleye this week with still lots of throwback sized fish in that area. Don’t forget about the 15” size limit on walleye as there has been a presence by Ohio Wildlife officers checking at all local marina locations.
