  6. I used to spend many summers at Charles Mill. We did a lot of fishing there, mainly after bluegill and crappie. Pleasant Hill lake is right around the corner as well.
     
  7. AEP lakes in southeast Ohio have some amazing pan fishing opportunities.

  8. Kellys Island or Put N Bay. I take my canoe and hammer fish close to shore. Great local eats. Plenty of swimming.

  10. My lifetime personal best smallmouth came off the pier by the campground at Kellys. Cold windy spring day with waves crushing the pier. I was about 12! The lake Erie Islands are a true gem.
