Ohio Fishing Reports from Our Damn Good Guides. See more reports for Ohio.

    We've been running out to 65 feet of water and setting lines for the walleye that have been lying in the colder water near the bottom. Dipsy's with spoons and Down riggers with crank baits have been talking most of the fish. Speed has been 2.5 mph, but some colder water has blown in so we slowed down a bit with great results. Now is a perfect time to book a trip for some trophy walleye or just fill the freezer.
