Spent a couple days out on the lake. Weather was very nice. Fishing was a little slow but did catch a few very nice walleyes. Scenery was excellent.

We had just planned a weekend of fishing Lake Ashtabula. The fishing was slow, the weather was hot. It was a nice relaxing weekend. We caught (1) perch, (1) small mouth bass, and lots of white bass and bullheads.

I grew up a few miles from Lake Ashtabula in the 50's. Swam, fished, boated and drove my car on the ice in the winter. Helped build the dance and roller skating hall at Siblys Trail, a new town on the lake. It is the...More
