Species: Crappie
Fishing Rating: 3
Water Temperature: 79
Crappies are still being taken shallow. 9\" min size limit at GLSM. The current class of crappies is best in years with most fish in 9.5-10.5\" range. Expect 60% of catch to be keepers. Small jigs (1/16 oz) under a bobber are most popular with small plastics such as tubes, stingers, curly tails....almost any small creature bait can attract crappies. Fish mornings and evening for best results. Water temps above 80 degrees will defintely diminish the bite.

Grand Lake-St Marys Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Grand Lake-St Marys at 40 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Grand Lake-St Marys Crappie Rating:
3.5
Grand Lake-St Marys Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Crappie bite in the channels has been good. Fish 2-10' from bank around docks, brush, submerged logs. 1.5 inch crappie tubes, stingers, and grubs all work well fished 14-20" under a bobber. Add a wax worm if you want but not needed. Use same strategy fishing with minnows.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.

Grand Lake-St Marys Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye function very well in the colder water temperatures. Try fishing some open flats and definitely use live bait when the water temperature is this low. Plastics with scent added will also produce results, but nothing beats live bait for walleye.

Grand Lake-St Marys Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
