FINDLAY, OH- Fisheries biologists have set the special fishing regulations for this year at Lake La Su An Wildlife Area, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).
Lake La Su An Wildlife Area will be open for fishing on May 5 through September 4, 2017. Fishing will be permitted, on Monday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from sunrise to sunset during this open season. The La Su An Wildlife area will be closed to fishing at all other times. Anglers are reminded that they will not need a reservation to fish the lakes on the La Su An Wildlife Area, but all vehicles must park in a designated parking space around the area.
Sunfish bag limits for 2017 will be 15 fish daily, with no more than 5 fish being 8 inches or larger. Largemouth bass will have an 18 inch minimum length limit, with a 5 fish daily bag limit and channel catfish will have a 2 fish daily bag limit. Daily bag limits will be posted and are in effect area wide. This means that only 1 bag limit will be allowed each day regardless of how many lakes an angler fishes. All statewide fishing regulations apply to the area lakes, except when superseded by the special regulations mentioned above. Anglers are also reminded that no fish may be used as bait on the area.
These regulations have been designed by ODNR Division of Wildlife fisheries biologists to continue the tradition of quality bluegill fishing on the La Su An area lakes by continuing to regulate the amount of fishing pressure without the need for anglers to obtain a reservation. The Division of Wildlife accomplishes this by limiting the number of days the lakes are open to fishing, limiting the number of bluegill that anglers can take home each day, and limiting the number of anglers that fish the area at one time (i.e., limited number of parking spaces).
