Midway Between Russell’s Point and Lakeview

This aerial video was taken by Cyberpro Web Services between Russell’s Point and Lakeview, Ohio on May 1, 2016.  The lake activity is increasing daily and many fishing men, women, and children are reporting good catches (see the story below).  While the air temperature may be in the 70’s or low 80’s, remember the water temperature is still in the 50’s and low 60’s.  Wear your life jacket as you fish, you have less than a minute in the water before you body starts to react poorly to the cold water.

Indian Lake Has Fish

Early season fishing has been good at Indian Lake.  In addition to these larger catches many fisherman have been reporting good results around the lake. Good fishermen don’t usually give away their “sweet spots” and it is always a mystery where the big fish are caught.With an increased number of boaters who have migrated  from Buckeye Lake and Lake St. Marys there appear to be more people fishing in the early tournaments.  Pleasant weather has made spring fishing attractive and despite some light showers the weekend tournaments have been popular.

No Wake Equals Idle – Ohio State Law

No person shall operate a vessel at greater than idle speed or create a wake within an area buoyed or marked as a “no wake” area. 

no-wake Ohio Boat Operators Guide: Operating Laws

Operation in Restricted Areas

ORC 1547.08
No person shall operate a vessel in designated “swim areas,” areas buoyed off as “no boats,” or within any area buoyed designating it as an are in which boats are prohibited.

Areas marked as “no boats” include the areas above and below dams and endangered species areas.

No person shall operate a vessel at greater than idle speed or create a wake under any of the following circumstances:

  • within any area buoyed or marked as a “no wake” area
  • within 300 feet of any marina, boat docking facility, boat gasoline dock, launch ramp, recreational boat harbor, harbor entrance on Lake Erie or on the Ohio River

 Thousands of dollars of damage is caused to sea walls each year by  boaters using excessive speed in “no wake” areas.  This damage is the responsibility of individual property owners, not the State of Ohio.  Excessive wakes near people fishing is extremely dangerous and very annoying.  The lake is a shared resource for many types of recreation.  Be considerate of your fellow boater.
