North East Ohio Fishing Reports
Northeast Ohio Fishing Report - February 27th, 2015
Posted on Thu, 26 Feb 2015
Mosquito Lake (Trumbull County) – Anglers are reporting up to a foot of ice in places on Mosquito. Be cautious, though, as some pressure cracks have opened up and flooded parts of the ice. Through the ice, anglers are piling up crappies and bluegills, with the latter species making up the majority of the catch. Successful anglers are using straight minnows on a hook or jig and minnow combinations. Fishing pressure has been heavy on Mosquito with shanties dotting the lake from side to side.
Atwood Lake (Tuscarawas, Carroll counties) – Anglers are reporting up to eight inches of good ice on Atwood. The popular fishing spot has been the point directly across from the lodge in 10 to 15 feet of water. Anglers are catching a few crappies and bluegills on jig and minnow combinations or waxworms under an ice bobber. Some yellow perch are also reportedly in the mix.
Charles Mill Lake (Richland, Ashland counties) – Fish deeper water for the best bite through the ice at Charles Mill, anglers report. Be sure to check areas carefully, however, as ice thickness varies widely from place to place on this lake. Better to be safe than sorry. Anglers have reported catching good numbers of crappies, particularly right at sunset or a little later.
Nimisila Lake (Summit County) – Yellow perch in the smallish range are making up most of the catch on this Portage Lake. Anglers are catching them in anywhere from five to 30 feet of water. Just about any offering will entice the perch bite, anglers report. Getting the walleye to bite is a tougher proposition, however.
