Northwest Ohio Fishing Report – January 30th, 2015
Indian Lake (Logan County) – Ice anglers have been congregating near North Fork and report catching a few saugeyes of decent size, as well as crappies and bluegills. Orange and chartreuse seem to be the popular patterns in a variety of baits. Ice is reportedly between six and eight inches thick.
Lake La Su An (Williams County) – Ice is being reported between four and five and a half inches thick. Anglers are catching bluegills on jig and waxworm combinations, fishing in shallow water. Keep the bait suspended for the best bite. Ice fishing is being permitted at this state-owned lake this year for the first time in many years.
Grand Lake St. Marys (Mercer and Auglaize counties) – The hot bluegill bite is on at Ohio’s largest inland lake, according to angler reports. Focus your effort on the deeper parts of the channels and use a variety of offerings. Ice spoons tipped with waxworms have been producing fish but so have minnows.
