Caesar Creek Lake (Warren County) – Largemouth bass can be caught around shoreline cover and riprap shorelines using crankbaits, jigs, and soft plastic lures. Saugeyes are starting to bite in six to 12 feet of water. Try using jigs with twister tails or a plain jig tipped with a minnow. Some white bass are being caught in Anderson Fork. Use small spinners, white or chartreuse jigs for the white bass.
Grand Lake St. Marys (Auglaize and Mercer counties) – Bass should be biting. Try fishing along the shoreline in less than three feet of water using soft plastics, (pumpkinseed, watermelon) and white spinner baits. The bass are starting to spawn, so concentrate your efforts in the back of channels and bays where there is brush and rock. For panfish, good numbers are being caught with cork and live bait. Try fishing one-two feet deep along any rocky or brushy channel. For catfish, try using cut bait, raw shrimp, and nightcrawlers. Fishing tight-line is best.
