Lake Erie Shores and Islands Ohio Area Fishing Report

April 15th, 2019

Welcome back 2019!!! Our season officially began this past weekend. We launched on Saturday morning (4/13) and did get out to fish a little in between the blows. Fishing was on fire in Western Basin prior to the strong NE winds on Thurs, then strong SW winds on Friday. Saturday was a nice day but a slow tough bite for most. Most of the people that done well were fishing east of Bass Islands to the NW corner of Kelley’s Island. Chrome based cranks at 1.2 to 1.5 was most common. Jig fishing on the reef complex was great prior to the winds and look for this to pick back up as soon as the weather stabilizes.

Till next week! Good luck and stay safe!
