04/28/2014 Report/Hotline

Perch fishing off Lorain has been great in 40 foot just north of the lighthouse. Look for Avon Lake and Sheffield Lake to get good this up coming week. Bonus walleye have been reported from almost all perch fishermen.
 Walleye fishing is still great from Vermilion to Catawba. Reef Runners ,Skinny Sticks and Huskys have all been working. Anglers pulling meat have also reported good catches, Anti-Freeze pink and painted pink backs have been best so far. Cold fronts have been moving fish around from as few as 10 feet down, all the way to the bottom. Reports have also been coming in from guys casting sonars in 6-12 feet of water. Night walleye from Cleveland to Vermilion has been in full swing, Husky Jerks in blue glass minnow, blue chrome and clown have all taken fish.
 With up coming rains rivers will be rising and turning muddy for the next week.

The Spring Fling Walleye Derby has its first leader, Doug Fair with a 12.25#-28.75" monster. Congratulations are well deserved.

 It looks like spring is finally here. Jigging and trolling from Vermilion to Detroit River has all fired up. Jigging the shoals has been producing quick limits with purple jigs still being top bet. Trolling DHJs, 800 Reef Runners, 300 Skinny Sticks in pinks and purples are all taking fish. Generally around 50 foot leads have been best. Night bite has also fired up with shore anglers and boaters both catching fish. Blue glass as well as silver blue have been best so far.
 Perch fishermen off Lorain have been getting limits with more than a few bonus walleye mixed in. The best depth has been 40 foot so far.
 Crappies have also started to make they're way into marinas but has been tough with muddy water.
 Lake run smallmouth have taken the place of steelhead. Black and white 1/32 jigs have been good.

Steelhead have made they're way up rivers and have went straight to gravel. This will mark the end of one of the toughest seasons I've seen in years.
 Walleye are hitting in the island area ,purple hair jigs and trollers are both taking fish. JT Custom pink lemonade and purple freak have both been tops this week. Night walleye has started for casters and trollers as well. Sheffield Lake and Lorain have both been good. Husky Jerks in blue glass minnow is top bait so far.

Steelheading the last few weeks has been a bust ,with more rain coming its not looking real good for the remainder of this week. Look for water to clear on smaller streams and rivers by mid week with larger river possibly by the week end.
Walleye fishing has heated up around Catawba/island area. Slow trolling 8-12 down at speeds from .8 to 1.2 mph has been best bet. Deep Jt Custom Huskys and the new Reef Runner Skinny Sticks did the damage the last few days. Look for that bit to stay strong the next few weeks with fish slowly moving East. Look for perch fishing to heat up as soon as the water clears ,traditionally is great off Lorain and Avon early.
