Presque Isle Bay
Yellow perch were generally spotty, but abundant in the spots where they were found. A few meal-size keepers were caught in Presque Isle Bay, a good bite was reported off the East Pier and perch continued to be taken west of the peninsula at about 40 feet, particularly off Trout Run and Godfrey Run. But between hot spots, the perch fishing was generally poor. Many sublegal walleye were taken on crawler harnesses, spoons or stickbaits. Some anglers released scores of young walleye, some boats limited out and a few fish in the 20-inch range were reported. Walleye were marked at virtually all depths. Smallmouths went for soft plastics at nearshore structure east of North West.
