The past 2 days, many limits have been caught 2 miles NW of Rattlesnake, 10-15 count using a single hook casting harness with gold blades, a 3/4 oz. egg sinker and a crawler. (Only need to use 1/2 a worm). NW Reef, located NW of North Bass is another area that has cleaned up and took off over this past weekend. The West side of Catawba over to H Can has also been productive, however, a smaller grade of fish but good eaters. Trolling bite still going on SE of Kelleys, dumping ground off Cedar Point and NE of Kelleys. You can pull spoons, Bandits or Worm Harnesses. Speeds varying 2.0-2.7. Perch fishing has been fair at best. You will catch a handful while walleye fishing. Those targeting perch are finding some between Kelleys and South Bass but they don't seem to be real schooled up yet. The numbers just aren't there yet. But the size has been excellent on those that are being caught. As we approach the Holiday Weekend, we do and will have Emerald Shiners and also soft shell crayfish. There are a lot of hard shell craws being sold in the area. Make sure you get what you pay for when it comes to crayfish- hard vs. softshell. It can make a BIG difference when fishing for bass.
Wishing everyone a safe and Happy 4th. of July!
Good Luck and Good Fishing!
