Lake Erie, Ohio - Freshwater Fishing Report
Western Basin

<p>Charters Tuesday were still slamming the eyes with worm harnesses behind in-line sinkers and bottom bouncers producing limits with a mixture of good-eating 2003 fish and big fish.

Popular colors continue to be hammered gold, John Deere green and purple.

Captains are fishing both north and south of West Sister Island and at the east end of the Camp Perry firing range. Trollers have been doing well around the Bass and Kelley islands.

The bite should remain good as long as the weather holds. The weekend outlook is very good at this time.
