Northwest Oho Fishing Report – January 13th, 2013
Indian Lake (Logan County)
Anywhere from three to four inches of ice is being reported all around this Logan County lake. Anglers are reporting catching bluegills, crappies and even a few saugeyes through the ice. Successful fishermen are using jig and minnow combinations or just straight maggots on a hook and ice bobber combo.
Maumee River (Wood County)
Anglers are catching walleyes in the deeper pools of the river, according to Maumee Tackle. The best baits seem to be 1⁄16- to 1⁄8-ounce lead head jigs with two-inch tails. Gary Lowery, owner of Maumee Tackle, said he’s been having good luck with two-inch ribbon tail PowerBait in fire tiger. Pier fishing for walleyes on Lake Erie has been hit and miss, Lowery reports. The better presentations for pier fishing is Bomber Long As and Husky Jerks in a variety of colors.

Bresler Reservoir (Allen County)
This 581-acre lake in Allen County has been giving up some walleyes and yellow perch this winter when the weather cooperates. Try crawler harnesses for the best bite.
Grand Lake St. Marys (Mercer and Auglaize counties)
Ice isn’t thick here, but anglers are reporting catching bluegills and crappies when conditions permit. Try mousies or wax worms under a bobber for the best bite.
