Posted on Thu, 26 Mar 2015
Mosquito Lake (Trumbull County) – Some anglers are still venturing out onto the ice at this northeast Ohio lake, but conditions are rapidly deteriorating. The safest bet is to fish below the spillway, where anglers are fishing for walleyes in good numbers, according to Vienna-area angler Mike Mainhart.
Atwood Lake (Tuscarawas, Carroll counties) - About the only fishing going on at this northeast Ohio lake is below the spillway as much of the ice has melted off. Try jigging Rapalas and Smithwick Rogues for saugeyes and crappies below the dam. Also for panfish, don’t neglect using waxworms for bait.
Charles Mill Lake (Richland, Ashland counties) - Anglers fishing in 10 to 15 feet of water on this lake have been picking up the occasional saugeye. According to angler reports, the ‘eyes are suspended about halfway up the water column. Try jigging blade baits for the best bite. Crappies too are being caught on small minnows and waxworms fished in the wood.
Lake Milton (Mahoning County) - Anglers are catching walleyes through about 10 inches of ice on this Mahoning County lake that is featured on the back page of this edition of Ohio Outdoor News. Successful fishermen are using Jigging Rapalas, Swedish Pimples, blade baits, and jig and minnow combinations to entice the walleye bite.
Nimisila Lake (Summit County) - Crappies are making up the majority of the catch on this Portage Lake. Anglers are using straight minnows or waxworms under an ice bobber to entice the bite. Fish anywhere on this body of water. The bite hasn’t been consistently good in any one spot, according to angler reports. Fish anywhere from 10 to 15 feet of water for crappies, yellow perch, and bluegills, anglers report.
