As we get closer to May, look for the white bass to be moving into the Mahoning River right down the street from us. Now's the time to stock up on Rooster Tails, Beetle Spins, and Roadrunners!
Walleye: We are still hearing of a handful of walleye being caught at the 224 causeway at Berlin and the dam at West Branch. Look for these fish to move on over the next week and look to target other fish from shore.
Perch: The perch fishing at Lake Milton has been great the last few days with most fish being caught on red worms, maggots or wax worms. The perch tend to stay in this area for a few weeks and there have been some big fish caught this week.
Crappie: Most of the crappie that have been reported have been coming from West Branch or deeper water in Deer Creek by anglers with boats. Look for the crappie to begin moving to more shallow water as water temps increase. 1/16 oz or 1/32 oz jigs and small soft plastics have been far superior to live baits this week.
Musky: We have heard of a handful of musky coming from the West Branch dam this week, but the best spot has been below the Lake Milton Spillway. The musky have been mixed in with the perch as they congregate in the water below the spillway.
