Northwest Oho Fishing Report - April 12th, 2013

Posted on April 11, 2013

  Sandusky River (Sandusky County)

The river level is low right now, however fishing has been good. Most anglers use a floating jig head fished on an 18- to 24-inch leader with a 1⁄4- to 1⁄2-ounce weight depending on the water current. Anglers seem to have the best success tipping the jig head with a twister tail of white or chartreuse color. The best area to try is around the Miles Newton Bridge. The daily bag limit is four fish. Do not keep any walleyes shorter than 15-inches.

Maumee River (Lucas County)
