Fishing at Grand Lake

I have decided to visit some of the lakes around Ohio that I have not yet been too. This week I've have hit two different Lakes. The first Lake I visited it is called Kiser lake. When I arrived at this lake I discovered that over a beautiful place to visit, it seems to be over grown with moss and vegetation under the water. Fishing here was almost impossible for me so I left and headed to Grand Lake which is located between the towns of St Marys and Celina . For bait I had brought nightcrawlers and some frozen shrimp because I heard that frozen shrimp does very well in this lake. I was able to catch a few blue gills on nightcrawlers but both were too large to use as bait so I switched to a big rod baited with shrimp.  In no time I got my first hit and was able to catch a nice size channel cat. This fish was about two and a half pounds and had very beautiful coloring.

Before I had much of a chance to catch a second fish, a small storm rolled in and I had to retreat to the car to wait for the rain to stop. The rain only lasted for about 20 minutes and soon I was back already my pier to begin fishing again. I went back to using the shrimp again, and no time I had fish number 2 on the line which felt noticeably bigger and indeed was, because this fish weighed in at about 4 pounds.  

Soon after I had caught fish number two the wind shifted drastically from being mild from the SW, to being quite brisk from the east. After this happened, all fishing success halted!  I was pretty disappointed when I failed to catch any more fish but that is the way fishing goes!  I am planning to go back to Grand Lake and I am on the hunt for a monster blue cat. I will also in the near future give an essay on all of the fishing gear that I use.  

More coming soon, but in the meantime I would love to hear about your favorite fishing spot.
