They've had tournaments in there since then. I know there was a crappie tourney, not sure about bass. I dont think that algae killed the fish as much as made it unsafe for mammals. I know it killed a guys dog. Im sure someone will correct me if Im wrong.

hey fished outdoorsman tourny and water was alittle muddy and most teams did okay. i think 6 lb something won. it was 8 fish limit to the scales. got alot of short and gills are going nuts too. water temp in most places was between 39 to 42 so getting there. good luck and if you just fish lake and look around you see people fishing can get color working we used every color and did ok think we got 6th place out of 20 teams. good luck

I don not know if this helps at all but I run OMBTT a bass circuit. Last year during practice I caught lots of immature bass that looked great so they are still spawning. During weigh in we looked at all the fish being brought in and they looked awesome! No scars, growths or anything like that. They also were very healthy and BB was over 6lbs.

BassMan94.........walleye and saugeye ice fishing results were amazing. You hear some reports of saugeye successes on open water, but I think most people don't have a clue how to fish for them. Saugeye are 2-3 years old and fish 21-22" are claimed. Walleye haven't been stocked since 2006. Saugeye were stocked 2 years.......a tiny number in 2009 and a healthy number in 2010, but none since.

Does anyone know if the fish are safe to eat? Haven't read anything about this lately.

Grand Lake St. Mary's is probably the most tested waterbody in Ohio for fish consumption. The only consumption advisory for GLSM is to limit your consumption of largemouth bass to 2 meals per week which is the same advisory for most Ohio lakes. Go to the link below from the Ohio EPA. It lists all consumption advisories for Ohio waters. The list is long and most of them have more issues than GLSM. Here's the link http://www.epa.state.oh.us/dsw/fisha...YourMeals.aspx .

Also, in the Southwest Region of the OGF forum, you can find more posts about Grand Lake St Mary's. Ohio DNR lists GLSM and Fort Loramie as waterbodies in the state's Southwest Region, therefore many others post in that region.
