Springfield Lake

Discussion in 'Northeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by 06basstracker, Oct 21, 2007.

  1. Any news about this lake. I have only fished this lake once in my life and caught 1 14" smallmouth. A friend of mine wants to fish it tomorrow. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.
     
  2. Some like it, some dont. I do! There are some decent size fish in there, smallmouth espeacially.

    This is a great little lake with some big largemouth and smallmouth. You can catch short 11" smallies all day.
     
  4. Do they allow boats on this lake and if so, whats the hp limit?
     
  5. 250 h.p. from 10 A.M. to 7 P.M., 10 h.p. otherwise. This was found on the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. Hope it helps.
     
  6. Do they have a public boat ramp off rt. 224?

    yes they do....it is free off rt.224....off of Lake Rd. on the Lakemore side there is a fee, but the ramp is much nicer.

  8. You can use the Lakemore ramp free of charge before Memorial Day and after Labor Day.

    Depends on the situation. Ive caught them on many different things from top water to jig-n-pig to cranks and spinnerbaits. No one thing will work everyday.
