    My wife and I I enjoy fishing Fish lake.
    Still learning the lake and probably fished 8-10 times this past summer/fall.
    Caught some decent bluegills and a few nice bass.
    Also a scattering of perch but mostly dinks.
    I understand there is some very nice crappie , more size than numbers but we have not caught any as of yet.
    Nice scenery.
    Good water quality and good cover with weedbeds and downed shoreline trees.
    Do you fish any of the other lakes along Hwy 13?

    You are welcome.
    I’ve never fished Corner lakes but was told it has really nice bluegill and good weed beds for fishing.
    I definitely want to give it a try this spring.
    How have you done at Corner lake?
    Another I’d like to try is Island lake.
    It has a nice campground also, somewhat rustic.
    Do you live in the area ?
    We live near Traunik about 5 miles south of Chatham.

    I fished it about three years ago. Got lucky and found an aggressive
    school of crappie. Decent size and enough for a couple meals. Also picked up an under sized pike.

    Nice!
    Yes, the crappie seem to be elusive.
    I’ve not tried real hard to target them specifically but I am going to give it more of an effort this year.
    So far we have done best on bluegill and also pick up the occasional largemouth and smallmouth here and there.
    The bluegill don’t run huge but are decent size and usually good numbers when you find them.
    Do you live in the area?

    No do not live up there. However I try to fish up there one week per summer. Didn't get there this past summer, went to Alaska for the month of July. Will be back this summer, a week in August. Looking at staying at the Jack Pine Lodge. Sometimes we stay at Burson's Delta Resort on Foote Lake.

    Do you know anything about D and D in Steuben? Doesn't look like he has a website.

    Thanks for the reply.
    What part of Ohio do you live?
    We lived in the Dayton/Darke County area for many years prior to moving to the UP in 2014.
