Northwest Oho Fishing Report – February 15th, 2013
Indian Lake (Logan County)
Conditions can change quickly, but as of Feb. 5 there was good ice at Long Island and Blackhawk. Anglers have been pulling some bluegills and crappies through the ice along with the occasional saugeye. Three inches of ice were reported in most locations. As with every lake in this report, caution is urged. Weather conditions can change quickly in central Ohio.
Grand Lake St. Marys (Mercer, Auglaize counties)
Crappies that translate into some nice filets are being pulled out of St. Marys in anywhere from 18 inches to three feet of water when the water has been open. Anglers are reporting crappie catches up to a pound apiece. The productive bait has been jigs tipped with minnows or wax worms. A few catfish are also being taken on cut shad.
