Nancy Allen reported that ice fishing is hot on Grand Lake St. Marys in a recent Daily Standard article. The following are excerpts, follow the link below to read the full article.
– Large numbers of ice fishermen took to Grand Lake over the weekend, a sight not seen in many years.
– "It reminded me of things I seen in the '80s with guys in ice shanties and sitting on buckets fishing," Brian Miller, manager at Grand Lake St. Marys State Park, said. "They were pulling out crappie, and some saugeye and walleye up to five pounds."
– Miller said anglers first took to the lake about three weeks ago after the first big ice cover appeared, then temperatures warmed and the ice broke up. This past weekend's fresh batch of ice brought out even more people to fish, he said.
