  1. Northwest Ohio Fishing Reports
    I took a walk with my wife along Metzger Marsh. Thought it would be nice to have an aerial view of the place. It's a great place to fish from shore and a great hunting place in the fall. I met a nice young man by the name of Max who caught his P.B. northern pike. I was glad I was there to...

    Tappen had a huge sack weighed in. I was going to hit this lake this fall, but not sure what to expect. Most of the guys struggled there this weekend except the winners. Worth my time to fish it? https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/fishtalkfishingreports/tappan-lake-oh-7-26-20-t13879.html#p91688

    This lake use to be one of the best trout lakes in southern Michigan. They stopped stocking it after northern Pike got into the lake. They really don't know how they got in there. Whether they got dumped out in a mixed bucket of minnows or some other way. It definitely affected the trout...

    My buddy fished Indian Lake last weekend and got some bites, but had some bad luck getting them in the boat. It appears he was having issues with the knot between the braid and fluorocarbon leader. He posted some results on what it took to win...

    My buddies made it out on Skeeter yesterday. That water warmed up to 74 degrees in the heat! He said it's running real clear and the bass were biting good. Posted a couple pictures also. I may have to get back over there in a few weeks...

    My buddy fished a bass tournament on Lake Milton and it went off without any issues. It was a solo tournament, and I think they had around 30 boats. Winners had a little over 12 lbs, and my buddy took 3rd with just under 10 lbs. He posted some pics if your interested in seeing them. One...

    I fished Wamplers Lake in Michigan this past Friday. Fishing was a little tougher than expected. Had to work through a series of lures and presentations before finding one that would put some bass in the boat. Managed some largemouth and smallmouth. Water surface temperature was running 59...

    Trying to dodge the rain drops today and get in a few casts. Did good getting in the casts, but got soaking wet doing it. Fished little less than two hours from 4:30 to around 6:30 pm. Managed 20 to 25 white bass, 3 largemouth, and one nice crappie. If it wasn't so nasty I would have...

    Jim and I ended up putting a good pattern together last Wednesday. We had some camera mishaps, but was able to piece a good video to share with ya. We give some insight on where we found the active bass. Types of weeds, lure, and presentation. Definitely weren't active in the wood like we...

    looking for places to wade for Smallmouth and Largemouth bass near the Lucasville, Ohio area. I was thinking Scioto Brush Creek but not sure if most of it is too deep to wade, and if not what streams should I be looking into?

    Sitting here waiting for ice has been excruciating. I decided to piece together a video I did this fall with my buddy Kevin. We spent the 2nd half of our day fishing a lake I grew up on. Man that was pretty cool to see it again. I've been fishing for quite a few years now and it's crazy how...

    It's a tough time of year to get through as anglers. Stuck between ice up and open water. I'm hoping to make it out to East Harbor this winter for some ice fishing when it locks up good. In the meantime, I hope the sights and sounds of being on the harbor bring back some fond memories from...

    I had plans with a good friend to fish Lake Erie last weekend. Mother Nature had other ideas. 23 foot waves had us headed inland. We fished a lake in Coldwater Michigan. The challenge was to catch some bass and make the most of the day. We caught bass, but the big surprise was the walleye...
