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):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 78 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!

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):
Your lake crappie will be much more lethargic in the water temperature. They will be in deeper and cooler water. Crappie will be feeding; however they will not be feeding aggressively unless the other fishing factors are at prime levels. Find some moving water that is clear and you should find some more aggressive fishing.

2.5
Grand Lake-St Marys Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be starting to get a little slower in this water temperature. With walleye being a cold water fish, they will start becoming fairly lethargic in this water. With the fish slowing down the fishing will be more difficult to find and coax into biting. However they will be feeding and the walleye bite should still be good. This time of year is a good time to fall back to live bait as standard practice for the best bet at numbers and size of fish.

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.
