I could use some basic help if anyone has the time. I need to know a good place to get live bait close to campus and some directions to boat ramps from campus. Any help would be awesome.

Lakes:
Alum
Deer creek
delaware

any small ponds or other reccomendations would be nice.. i fish from my kayak or john boat and always return fish to the water.

Back in the early 60s' you could always get bit at the "Varsity Club" without any bait. Then over to the "Tangy" for a submarine check. lol

If your looking to buy bait close to campus the closest spot is probably R&R down on Front St. Just go down to Whittier and make a right then a right on Front St. and it will be on your left. Most of the lakes all have bait stores around them so it would probably be easier to get bait out there. If your looking to catch your own bait, below Griggs is usually very easy to catch bait with a cast net.

When i go to Delaware Lake i go to Norton Sporting Goods, 740-726-2616, 100 Norton Rd / RT.229, south of Waldo. Its the next Lighted Intersection north of the main park entrance for Delaware Lake.

Not sure they're still there but there was a bait shop on 5th Ave. back in the 70's. Kind of a bait shop carryout combined. Believe it was west of High St.

Generally fished Hoover while in college. Out by Westerville. Can get bait out there by the south end. Fished the catch basin below the dam with mixed success. Also a spot downriver a little way where there was a deeper hole.about 300 yds. below the south end of the parking lot in the bottom.

Good luck!
