Just a simple Carolina rig with a floating jig head works well.

I use the old lead head with a curly tail... works like a charm! The water needs to be fast like in the Maumee in order to get maximum action out of a carolina rigged floater.just my opinion... caught fish on both!

Usually a colorful floater/swirltail works well 3in swirltail with a 20in leader

I hear the run is best last half of March through first half of April. I was actually thinking about heading to Fremont this Saturday.... too early?

From 40 years of experience, the best time is usually a week either side of April 12th. Last year was the earliest I remember but I've caught females until mid May some years.

What rod length works best on the Sandusky from bank or wading? Also what do you prefer ultra light rig, etc...

Happy Fishing to all see you on the water.

I went fishing yesterday no luck dident count on anything tho just wanted to cast my line. There was two other guys down there no luck for them either. The rivers low and clear. Maybe a few more warm days like this will spark the first run. Ill try next week p.s i heard from facebook some guy already caught one any information on this i would like to hear about!

all depends on what your using carolina rig or just a lead jig with split shot. I prefer a longer rod with the carolina rig and a shorter with the lead jig
