Port Clinton, South & Middle Bass Islands, Kelleys Island, Pelee Island, Lakeside, and Marblehead Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"What’s up, dock? Plenty, particularly if you like fishing and boating. The Lake Erie island area is a sporting paradise, even during the cold months, when ice fishing occurs. Thanks to high nutrient levels and warm temperatures, its shores teem with walleye, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, freshwater drum, crappie, white bass, and more. The area’s also chock-full of bird brains: herons and egrets as well as migratory warblers to the tune of more than 300 species.
Prime spots include Kelleys Island and South Bass Island. There are also enough restaurants, shopping, and historical sites to keep even the most seasoned traveler occupied. You can party like it was 1999 at the bustling town of Put-in-Bay and on Kelleys Island, or have fun with the whole family at parks, monuments, and museums. Once you arrive, getting around the islands is made easy by a variety of bike and golf cart rental companies, which are usually located within walking distance of the ferry."
