Ohio’s autumn crappies in transition mode: Here’s how to catch them

Fall is without a doubt one of the best times to fish for crappies in Ohio, second only to spring in most anglers’ opinion. Some even say fall is best and there is a strong argument to be made for that statement, as well.

If that is something you are interested in, Alum Creek Reservoir in Central Ohio is one of the best places to go. A successful afternoon or evening crappie trip can end with a successful late evening or nighttime saugeye trip.

So, you want to catch crappies? BIG crappies? Well, there is no better time than now to do just that at Delaware Lake in Central Ohio.
Early spring is when you will find the highest number of keeper-sized fish in the lake. There has been very little fishing pressure put on them for months and many of the fish that were just shy of the 9-inch size limit last year have grown to legal size now.
