Fishing Report 5/10/24

Fishing has been heating up as water temperatures heat up. Lots of fish have been brought in this week even with the rainy conditions. Here are some of what we have heard so far this week.

Walleye: Walleye have been spotted in the shallows, particularly near willows in 3-5 feet of water. Anglers are having luck using jigs and crawlers to reel them in.

White Bass: Head to the mouth of the Mahoning River for some white bass action! Anglers are having luck using twister tails, rooster tails, and live minnows to lure in these feisty fighters.

Crappie: Crappie are on the move and can be found near shallow trees, as well as spots like Greenbower, Price St, Bedell Rd, Rockhill bridge, and Fewtown Rd. Anglers are having success using 1/16 oz jigs with soft plastics, as well as live minnows, to entice these fish. Soft plastics are proving particularly effective in mimicking natural prey and attracting strikes.

Catfish: Catfish are active throughout our waterways this week, providing anglers with some enjoyable fishing opportunities. They're readily biting on a variety of baits including shad, chicken liver, shrimp, and nightcrawlers. Whether you're casting from the shore or drifting along in a boat, you're likely to have some luck hooking into these bottom-dwelling fighters. So grab your gear, find a comfortable spot, and enjoy some relaxing time on the water while waiting for those catfish to bite!
