2 fish through May 15. The trout and salmon minimum size limit is 12

*2005 Ohio fishing licenses are now available.*

Most nearshore and bay ice is deteriorating with open water pockets in
Sandusky Bay, off of Marblehead, North of Port Clinton, and between
Catawba Island and South Bass Island. While airboats are still
traveling from the mainland to fish offshore it should be considered
unsafe to walk out on the ice or drive snowmobiles or ATV's onto the ice
from the mainland. West of South Bass Island between Rattlesnake Island
and Green Island, where the ice is sheltered, fishing has continued to
be exceptional. Many limit catches of walleye have been reported with 4
to 6 pound averages including fish up to 13 pounds. Be sure to check
with local bait stores, ice guides or other anglers before going out on
areas that you are not familiar with.
