    Only time I’ve been on that lake is in November.  We always just trolled small spoons around the island off Put-IN-Bay.   Caught great walleye and occasional big smallmouth mixed in

    Just make sure you have room in the freezer.

    We used Lake Erie fishing charters with Captain Kevin. We ended up staying at Port Clinton rentals but you could stay just about anywhere in that area. We ended up fishing out of Huron so we actually had a little bit of a ride. They radio fish a lot out there to find the hot bite. We fished ruggles reef for 2 days and had a four man limit both days. Captain Kevin also got his limit. We hit it at the end of April and fished one day in April and one in may when the limit went up to 6 fish a person. All in all we had 8 gallon freezer bags to haul home on a 2 day trip. Some passes along the reef saw up to twelve fish boated and we were off the water with limits by noon.
