Northwest Ohio Fishing Report – February 26th, 2016
Findlay Reservoir No. 2 (Hancock County) – Ice has been building on this northwest Ohio lake, but reports of ice fishing are hard to come by. If you decide to try it, check first with local bait shops to see if anyone has been out on the ice and to check for thickness. When conditions are right, wintertime anglers can catch yellow perch and walleyes here, primarily in the area of the boat ramp.
Grand Lake St. Marys (Auglaize and Mercer counties) – Anglers are reporting between four and six inches of ice here, with most of the fishing action taking place in the lake’s channels. The crappie fishing that this lake is known for has just been OK this winter. Some days you’ll catch a few and then get skunked the next day. Try the usual ice jigs with a minnow or straight minnow under a bobber for the best bite.
