Hit the points for eyes, and go slow. I haven't fished it for eyes In a while, but I hear it's went down hill. I've never fished it specifically for crappie, but I've seen some nice ones pulled from there.
I have fished this lake a lot growing up now living in Columbus I only fish it once or twice a year. I haven't caught an eye in it in a long time. There is a good number of bass and gills with a few crappie. The last time I was there I even caught a handful of perch. This lake used to be Hocking College Playground - Not sure if they are still messing with it or not.
Had a good trip to Snowden after work this afternoon. Didn't catch a large quantity of crappie but I did catch quality 2-14" the smallest measuring 11" I wash fishing in 12 ft of water and the crappie were suspended at 5 ft. Water temperature on my fish finder was saying 55 degrees.
Went to Snowden yesterday. Caught a bunch of bluegill and short bass nothing real exciting. I caught a small bluegill that got hooked in the gills so I cut it in half for bait. Ended up landing a 22" channel cat within 5 minutes of casting it out! It was a fun fight on a 5'6" light action rod and 6lb braided line.
. Has me roaring and ready to load the boat with catfish!
I've caught bass, perch, bluegill, crappie, and cats at snowden. Although ive tried for a long time, have never caught a saugeye there; but have heard of others catching them. I have better luck with saugs at Lake Rupert.
Had a blast fishing Snowden last night with my wife and daughter. We ended up with only 2 keeper channel cats and a bunch of shorts. We did land a 36" shovel head. It was fun chasing it across the lake trying to catch it on our jug line
we took some photos and released it back into the lake
