Hotel Victory: Put-in-Bay’s “Grandest” Memory

The crown jewel of the Lake Erie Islands is Put-in-Bay Ohio (South Bass Island). The island offers a rich history, and tourists have been visiting Put-in-Bay for more than 200 years.

And ever since then, Put-in-Bay has come to represent freedom, joy, and peace for everyone who visits.

Last fall, walleye fishermen were elated to learn that the 2018 hatch in Lake Erie’s Western Basin produced the largest number of new walleyes ever recorded. Now walleye fishermen who cast their lines into the Central Basin around Cleveland have a new report to celebrate, one that says the 2018 walleye hatch rate there was the best in 20 years. Combined with the previous record-high hatch of 2003, and the productive hatches of 2014 and 2015, the Western and Central basin walleye hatch of 2018 should serve to solidify Lake Erie’s claim as the Walleye Capital of the World for...
