Lake Erie walleye fishing
Lake Erie walleye fishing this week has been awesome at times and slow at times. The one constant is that the smaller, undersized fish are biting almost everywhere you go and are very plentiful. Keeper sized fish have been a bit more spotty this week after a cold front that blasted through last week cooled the water temperature around the islands. The area between Kelleys Island and South Bass was producing limit catches last week, but after the big northeast blow on Wednesday of last week this area cooled off for the keeper sized fish, especially for boats that were casting for walleye. Trolling was still producing some good keeper sized fish so it was probably a bit of cooler water technology that was working best. The area north of West Sister Island has been producing some good catches of keeper sized walleye as that area seems to have been immune to the cooling from the northeast winds allowing anglers to stuff the cooler with good ones!
