Northwest Ohio Fishing Report – September 25th, 2015
Sandusky Bay (Erie County) – Some very large catfish have been taken in Sandusky Bay. Try using shrimp or worms fished on the bottom. Night fishing has been more productive than day fishing. Willow Point, Bay Bridge Access, and Bay View Fishing Access are all good places try for catfish.
Nettle Lake (115 acres; Williams County) – Largemouth bass anglers have been catching bass near the surface using surface baits and plastic worms. Evenings in the northwestern bay area have been the most productive. Bluegills have been biting in the mornings. Try fishing with red worms six to eight feet below a bobber. Most fish have been caught in the area around the boat ramp at the southwest corner of the lake. Nettle Lake has no horsepower restrictions; however, there is a no-wake rule (power boaters must operate at idle speed) between the hours of 6 p.m. and 10 a.m. From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., there are no speed restrictions for power boaters.
