Two views of the recently renovated Russells Point Harbor bridge taken during December.  The walk, park, and bridge are wonderful additions to the harbor and have kindled many memories of the former amusement park.  Thanks to the Reed family, local merchants, many friends who donated to the park, and the community for supporting this wonderful tribute to the history of Indian Lake.

Still Catching Fish

Justin Shick reported on FaceBook, “We got this mess Saturday (December 12, 2015). And we got another 35 on Sunday.” Many fisherman and hunters have enjoyed the warmer weather this December and there have been many boats on the lake on the weekends and weekday evenings.  The bike paths between Blackhawk and Russells Point  were filled with hikers and bikers enjoying the warmer weather. justin-shick-12dec2015

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.
