Lake Erie Walleye Fishing Report Monroe Michigan 5-04-2014

Super windy conditions have shut Lake Erie Western Basin down this past week around Monroe, Brest Bay and the Toledo Light due to high winds mainly from the North East. As of yesterday the lake was a mud pit as far as I could see from shore at Toledo Beach Marina where the wind was blowing 20 out of the South West. The water in the marina was also low!

Prior to last weeks wind event walleye are being caught around Brest Bay and out in front of Sterling State park in 12 feet of water using blade baits and purple jigs tipped with a shiner minnow. The North end of the dumping grounds is producing walleye, smallmouth, and white bass

The surface temperature is still around the mid to low 40’s
