Come to where the walleye are jumpin´ and the fish are bitin´!

Ohio’s Western Basin of Lake Erie has the best walleye fishing in the world. According to the Ohio DNR, millions of walleye are caught in our area each year.

Walleye anglers can expect to catch fish mostly from the 2003 and 2007 hatch, with continued contributions from 1999, 2001 and 2005 hatches. Walleye from the 2007 class will be 15 to 19 inches long while fish from the earlier classes will range from 20 to 28 inches over the course of the fishing season. Large walleye from strong hatches in the 1980’s and mid-1990’s still persist in the population providing “Fish Ohio” trophy opportunities of 28 inches and up.

Perch anglers should encounter very good numbers of 7 to 13 inch fish from the 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2008 hatches.
