Fishing has been a popular activity in Sandusky since 1851 when J. Spencer, the first commercial fisherman set his nets in Sandusky Bay. Fishing has evolved tremendously over the years and still remains a crucial part of Sandusky's maritime history.

Shown here is a video about fishing in the area.
