This lake is a waste. To muskie fisherman a haven. Rest of fisherman dont waste your time the limit size 9\" for crappie has been taken off and determine by ODNR that they are stunted (recent via shock method study). The bass fishing could be better and the saugeye fishing is a joke. So the only thing that thrives in this lake are muskie which are way over populated and they eat what dont eat them. If you like bowfishing there are plenty of carp.ODNR needs to rethink there stocking program if they want other quality species of fish in this lake or they can continue there muskie fishery which is great for fisherman who like to fish for them. To all fisherman good luck and enjoy. Hope you catch the big one.

Leesville Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Leesville Lake has a 9.9 Hp max motor limit. The bass will hide in large trees
when the water is cold. The trees that are close to the surface warm up from the
sun during the day and the bass will \"snuggle UP \" to them. They use the trees as
a place to ambush smaller fish that try to warm up also. The surface water warms
up quickly during the day.
Leesville has weedbeds later grow to the surface during the summer. You can catch
all species of fish in and around the weed beds.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Fall Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: One tactic is all you need. Trolling. Get a pink or black colored crankbait that gets down 8-12 feet (I like Bandit 200 and 300 series crankbaits), and put it 80-100 feet behind a boat and drive that boat around in 8-12 feet of water pretty slow. 1.2-1.8 miles per hour seems to be the blessed speed. You will catch crappies, and you'll be surprised how many. This is a great tactic when you don't have a fishfinder.

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.
