Lake Erie Fishing Report 5/23/2023
Walleye: Walleye can be caught in post-spawn areas. Finding relatively clean water and active fish has been key. Trollers are doing well with deep diving stickbaits, like bandits, and divers pulling spoons in 25-45’ of water. Trolling northeast of the reef complex and northwest of Kellys Island has produced the best catches, with some successful trips out of Huron, Vermillion, and Lorain. Leads 60-120’ back unassisted or 50-100’ back with 2-ounce snap weights have been working well at speeds of 1.6-2.0 mph. Walleye are mostly 18’’+ long, with plenty 26’’+ fish as well. Remember the daily limit is 6 fish, with a minimum size of 15 inches.
The water temperature off Toledo is 60 degrees, off Cleveland 55 degrees, and off Erie 53 degrees.
Anglers are encouraged to always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device while on the water.
