I got some new fishing gear that I am itching to try out. Im not one for ice fishing and was wondering if the lake is iced over. Has anyone been out fishing around sandusky bay or other spots around lake erie that still have some open water? I dont want to travel to far and sandusky bay is about as far as I would want to travel from toledo? I was thinking about maumee river but a coworker said he tried a few days ago right after the warm weekend but could not get a bite.
