The fishing this summer has been really slow but with the cooler temperatures of fall weather coming, the fishing should pick up.

Hooker @ Hills; filed 8/18: “Hey Darl, it is getting to the point where I can type the word “WIND” without looking at the keyboard. The wind forced our hand when and his grandson fished with me on the Hooker II, but we did not let it beat us. We had a great day on the water and caught some nice fish using Bobby Garland Baby Shad and Swimming Minnow baits on 1/16-ounce jigheads. We had to keep changing colors to keep the bite going. A few days ago Dave Kohta Sunset (db photo) and I got out. Low and behold – NO WIND! I wasn’t sure what to do, this being a new experience for the 2014 season. Despite my sarcasm, we had a very productive morning. We targeted yellow perch first. Some people may wonder about that, but once you find a flat full of Lake Erie quality Jumbo Perch on Pymatuning, you will wonder why you have been passing this lake by on your way to the Big Pond. By the end of the day we had caught a nice string of fish that included some very nice crappies. We fished in 6 to 12 feet of water with Garland Baby Shad baits, sometimes tipping them with a meal-worm. Best colors were Monkey Milk and Outlaw. Both baits are available here at Hill’s Country Store.” (See Livewell photos) David @ Richter’s Tackle; filed 8/17: “Randy Keller and his friend Bob just stopped by with two limits of walleyes, caught before noon on Hot-n-Tots; all the walleyes were over 20 inches. Another customer stopped by to say he has caught four muskies recently by casting bucktails.” Patty @ Poff’s Place; filed 8/17: “Things are getting ready to change. They have been catching crappies after dark on the Cause-way. The bluegill bite has slowed down, but they are still catching channel cats. No word on walleyes.” Laurie @ Duck-n-Drake; filed 8/17: “I’m getting some exciting re-ports that crappies are starting to hit in shallower water. One cus-tomer stopped by with an impressive catch of crappies taken on minnows in 3 feet of water. Another customer did well on crappies in the Linesville Stumps yesterday, and was headed back there to-day. Other customers are still catching walleyes by trolling Shad Raps and Hot-n-Tots in 17 feet of wa-ter.” Jim McClave (Mercer); filed 8/9: “I fished the south end of the causeway at Pymatuning Lake this after-noon. Beautiful day to be out on the lake whether the fish are biting or not. A soft breeze out of the northeast made it ideal for drift-fishing. The bite was slow, by my wife Terry caught a nice keeper wall-eye about 17”, and I got a 14” walleye I had to throw back. Mixed in were a few bluegills and perch. We fished for about 4 hours, having launched out of the New Bowers launch. We fished 12 to 15 feet of water, bouncing crawlers on the bottom. Great day to be out!” MahrKi Johnson (Linesville); filed 8/8: “It had rained the day before so the water was a little high. My friend Henry and I decided it would be a good day to go to my secret spot – a good size creek that flows into Pymatuning. When we got there, the water was higher than usual and quite murky. We decide to wade up river while fishing the small coves. Henry was using a small black and green plastic shad we got from Field and Stream store a couple months back. A monster bass followed the lure for three feet before striking.” (See Livewell Photos)
