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 50 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):
With the Water Temperature at 50 all crappie should be up in their spawning areas now and spawn should be getting started. There will be a few few still in the deeps and prespawn areas, but a majority should be up getting ready or already spawning. Continue to hit the creek channels on the migration routes. Focus on isolated cover in a little shallower water. No need to get crazy shallow but start focusing on 15 feet or less of water. On warmer sunny days if the water is still at 50 you should attempt to bounce back and forth from 5-15 feet of water to attempt nailing a solid pattern fo r the day. Try a Kentucky rig baited with minnow, tube bait and small jigs.
Grand Lake-St Marys Walleye Rating:
2.5
Grand Lake-St Marys Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye spawn is in full swing now. With Walleye spawning grounds generally on gravel and rocky bottoms and preferring clean water. Try throwing reaction type baits up in the shallows. Rip-Rap, damns, rocky bottom points are perfect to hit. Try fishing some faster crank baits and spinners this time of year. As always fall back to the standard walleye fishing tactics, but it won?t hurt bringing out the bass gear in search for spawning walleyes. In this water temperature, always be safe on the water.
Grand Lake-St Marys Catfish Rating:

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 full moon has just past. The gravitational pull is starting to decrease with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today's solar/lunar peaks. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
