Northwest Ohio Fishing Report – January 17th, 2014
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. The best baits seem to be 1⁄16- to 1⁄8-ounce lead head jigs with two-inch tails.
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 varies in thickness here, but anglers are reporting catching bluegills and crappies when conditions permit. Try mousies or waxworms under an ice bobber for the best bite.
