The article focuses on walleye fishing on Lake Erie. The higher catch rates are indicative of Lake Erie's large walleye population which numbers in the millions. And the eastern basin of Lake Erie, along the New York shoreline, is famous for its trophy-size (8- to 10-pound) fish. In fact, many anglers participating in the numerous tournaments at Lake Erie catch monster walleye that weigh 11 pounds or more. In spring walleye prefer the shallow, productive waters in Lake Erie's west basin as spawning grounds.
