    thanks for the info:)
  5. there is a lot of fish in grant. yes they did drain the lake, but they dug a holding pond in the back side of the lake. they are a lot of fish over 2 foot in that place...
  6. I fished in Grant lake. seemed to average a steady 4-6' deep everywhere we went. where is this "holding pond" your talking about?
  7. went about a month ago caugh 5 keeper bass on spinnerbait
  8. u must not fish there to much cause there is plenty of fish over 12" in there. They drain the old resvour in the center of the town of mt. orab and they shocked the fish and transported the fish to lake grant and there was huge fish that come out of there. They had local guys throwing a tourny over there all summer long on sundays i believe had plenty of limits caught .The crappie fishing is awesome big nice eating crappie and blue gill i like lake grant the only down fall is i hate to troll i like to run the motor to get to the spot..
  9. I know a couple guys that fish the lake for flatheads and do pretty good. I have seen pics of the 30's come out of the lake. I believe they would have to be over 12 inches. Ronnie
