Today’s report will be slightly different as we have received feedback that you guys would like to see photos of baits/colors that have been hot, as sometimes manufacturers call the same color different names. We will do our best to post links to the colors and if the mods do not approve, please reach out and we will do our best to go a different route to post photos, but this way will be the most time efficient for us.
Lake Erie had been fairly rough most of the week, leading to only a handful of reports. Here is what we have that will do our best to get you guys on fish.
At this point, the best fishing can be found in any location from 55-70′ of water, with fishing in Ashtabula the best we have heard of, primarily 71-74′ of water near the 03/02 lines trolling SW. Both perch and steelies have been mixed in with most limits near Conneaut or Ashtabula with the perch being caught only a few feet of the bottom in most circumstances.
Fish can definitely be caught in water that is more shallow (Cleveland), but the difficulty is ramped up the more shallow you get.
Most of the fish are being caught on Spoons still, with a handful being caught on Bandits as well.
Here are the hot baits for this week, with Badmos again taking more fish according to our reports:

Thanks for all of your feedback and we hope these adjustments to the reports make it a little bit easier for you guys to spend more time on the water!
