With 14 fishing lakes in the Columbus area and many more nearby, it’s not surprising that this city is a top destination for fishing vacations. The city even boasts its own boat and fishing show every year. If you’re in town for that show or to check out the museums, history and outdoor activities, you may want to learn more about fishing in Columbus, Ohio.

Fishing License

Ohio requires a fishing license for anyone fishing in the state, including children. The state divides licenses into two categories, resident and nonresident, and differentiates between adults and children. A shorter three- or five-day license is also available for those planning a weekend or week-long fishing trip. The Columbus area has a number of shops offering fishing licenses and you also have the option of purchasing a license by mail or online. Walmart, Vance’s Shooting Supplies, Sportman, K-Mart, Meijer and other sporting goods stores sell fishing licenses in the Columbus area. A fishing license is also required for ice fishing.

Where to Fish

The Columbus, Ohio area has several lakes and reservoirs designated for public fishing. The Division of Wildlife lists Alum Creek Lake, Hoover Reservoir, Madison Lake, Washington Court House Reservoir and Knox Lake as destinations in the central part of Ohio, near Columbus. Alum Creek, Madison Lake and Hoover Reservoir limits crappie catches to 30 catches per day and each catch must be 9 inches or longer. The same waters also limit all bass catches to five catches per day, with a minimum size of 12 inches.

What Works
The best bait for fishing in Columbus is live bait, including minnows and worms. It’s best to pick bait that moves of its own accord once in the water, as this attracts fish. Night crawlers also work well for catfish. A popular method of fishing, especially in the Hoover Reservoir area, is to drop your line straight to the bottom and slowly pull it up at an angle. This is likely to attract more fish. Also, focus on areas around covered water and areas with a lot of debris, as some fish tend to hide in these areas. Buffalo suckers, bluegills, smallmouth bass, white bass and largemouth bass all live in the waters around Columbus. You’ll also find white crappies, channel catfish and black crappies, as well as as saugeyes, which resemble walleyes.

Ice Fishing

For ice fishing, visit North Lake in Columbus. The best time of year for ice fishing in the area is in January and only when the lake is completely frozen. Plan on visiting in the early morning and then later in the afternoon, when the temperatures drop and the sun isn’t beating directly on the surface of the water. You also need to dress in layers, as Ohio sees temperatures of under 20 degrees during the winter.

1.Buyer Guide for Kayaks Paddles

I went shopping online at 4 different online stores to find the right paddle for my kayak.

The first store I went to was REI to get more infomation about buying the right paddle for my new kayak. There are a few thing to think about shift, blade, material and price, and last length. By choosing the right paddle you can save yourself a lot energy. Here is some information from REI:

Figuring out the right size (length) of paddle is surprisingly straightforward. The wider your boat is, the longer your paddle needs to be. Your height is also a factor, especially for a narrower boat: Taller paddlers need longer paddles.

I like traveling and trying new things. I have been to 20 different city this past month. I have enjoy good food, good weather, roof top bars, and the beach. I also have enjoy learning and listening to interesting people. There are different rental programs across the country at universities and colleges. I came a cross a program about the local University of North Florida (UNF), they offer “Gear Check-out & Adventure Trips.” The students can use the gear for free, for example, kayaks, canoing, and rock climbing.

The programs offered University of North Florida (UNF) allow students, staff and visitors to learn about team work in different environment. I like to see programs like that be very success like it is at our local university.

Best Fishing Practices

Many anglers plan ahead and incorporate best fishing practices using tips to ensure safe and responsible angling. Thank you to www.fishsmart.org or providing the following tips:.

Plan Ahead

Know your fishing regulations and have the necessary equipment ready to release fish that you do not plan to keep.

Avoidance

Develop fishing skills to target the size and species you desire. Change location, depth, or bait to avoid catching fish you do not intend to keep.

Appropriate Gear

Use appropriately sized gear that is targeted to the species you desire to catch. Use circle hooks when planning to release fish and where they are required.

Landing Fish

Do not play the fish to exhaustion. Use line strong enough to minimize playing time. Land the fish quickly and if possible, release them while still in the water.

Handling Fish

Use knotless, rubberized landing nets and rubberized gloves to avoid removing the slime layer from the fish’s body. Keep the fish horizontal and support the body. Avoid dropping the fish, especially onto hard surfaces. Use release tools, such as dehookers and recompression tools, to minimize handling. Release fish as soon as practical and do not keep them out of the water longer than necessary.
