Walleye fishing; Bass fishing; Trout fishing; Perch fishing or just plain
fun fishing. Port Clinton, Ohio
can be your link to the "Walleye Capital of the World" Lake Erie. Lake Erie is alive and well with plenty of entertainment for the entire family.
Port Clinton, Oh. is centrally located in the western basin of Lake Erie. This area is also known as The Walleye capitol of The World for its incredible Walleye fishing. Some times this area is referred to as "The Islands "as well because of the many islands that are scattered throughout the region. The western basin is thought of as starting at Toledo, Oh. to the west and extending to Kelley's Island in the east off of Marblehead, Oh.
It is estimated that ninety percent of Lake Erie's Walleyes migrate to the western basin in particular in the spring time. These Walleyes seek out the shallower and warmer waters this time of year to spawn. The western basin is loaded with shallow reefs, shoals and rocky islands making this area ideal spawning habitat for these fish. There are also several major river systems including the Detroit, Maumee and Sandusky that help draw these fish to the region. The western basin is also rich with Smallmouth Bass and Yellow Perch. It is no wonder that the Port Clinton and the entire western basin area offers world class fishing opportunities !
The 2003 hatch will make for some fantastic Port Clinton walleye fishing this year.
