Where: Walleye fishing has been excellent for anglers trolling around the Huron dumping grounds and also north of Cranberry Creek. Night fishing has been good on many of the western basin piers, especially the Huron pier.
How: Trollers are using crankbaits such as Reef Runners, Ripsticks, Rogues or Deep Husky Jerks. The best action has been in the upper portion of the water column. Anglers casting off the piers are primarily using stick baits.
The water temperature is 35 degrees off Toledo and 42 degrees off Cleveland according to the nearshore marine forecast.
Anglers are encouraged to always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device while boating.
