  2. Marysville Reservoir any good?

    Central Ohio Fishing Reports
    I’ve fished it briefly 3 times so far this year and been skunked. Caught a few dinks last year, but I would imagine there should be quite a few good size perch by now? I’ve hardly seen any fish out of there this year, I don’t know if it’s just a poor location or I need a boat or what. It’s hard...

  5. Night Time Perch?

    Lake Erie Fishing Reports
    I know most people fish perch during the day but has anyone tried night perching? I got up to the lake late last Friday and the thought of trying crossed my mind. Wasn’t sure if the perch do not feed at night. Thanks for any insight.
