Lake Erie Perch / Walleye Fishing Report Monroe MI 8/1/2014

Walleye fishing has been non-existent this past week around the dump with a few being caught around the Raisin River buoys. Wiggle Warts were the preferred trolling baits. It’s been flat out slow.

Perch fishing is starting to pick up in 24 to 26 ft of water in front of Brest Bay to the Ohio line. Be careful not to go over the line unless you have a valid Ohio fishing license. The Ohio perch limit is 30, the rod limit is -2-  per angler and the “boy’s” are out counting them!! The fine is $135.00 per rod over.

Some perch are being caught around “E” buoy and the second set of cans north of the lighthouse. Lots of white perch, in fact we got into so many we jigged two bare hooks and we were catching two at a time. We kept moving around til we finally got away from them. The perch fishing n still seemed a little slow and I’m sure our un-stable weather this past week had something to do with our slow catch rate
