Grand Lake St. Marys (Mercer and Auglaize counties) - Channel catfish are being caught using a long-shanked hook baited with shrimp or nightcrawlers as bait. Fish in areas near the shoreline. Using a slip bobber keep the bait about one to two feet off of the bottom or fish tightline along the bottom. Let the bait drift with the current or use a slip bobber. Use a No. 8, 1/0, or 2/0 long-shanked hook. Harmon's and Windy Points are producing good catches of channel catfish. Bluegills are being caught using a No. 10 sized hook baited with red worms, waxworms, or jigs with chartreuse plastic bodies. Fishing is good on the south side of the lake. Cast into channels, along the pier, or from the shoreline into areas with rocks or brush. Keep the bait about one to two feet deep.
