Atwood 6/24

Discussion in 'Northeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by wickford, Jun 25, 2008.

  1. Fished Atwood last night from about 6pm-9pm. Beautiful night to be on the water. Got lots of bites but only a couple of hook ups...Must have been a little slow on the draw as I've not been out much this year.

    First one was lost at the boat. Either a small cat, or small saugeye, couldn't see the whole fish, only the underside as he threw the hook and swam away, but it was small. Second was my biggest saugeye so far. A very nice fat 16 incher!! Would have made a couple of really nice sandwiches, but I threw him back to catch another day...
  2. Congratulations!!!!!

  3. What were you using for bait, I have never fished for saugers.
  4. Saugeye fishing has been a little rough for me down there this year. I've taken home about 8 this year so far all over 15" and biggest was a little over 20". Also have caught atleast 20 dinks. I got into a school of white bass last week down there - got about 50 of them in half an hour. All were released - Biggest being around 15". They are a good fight on an ultra light. Im fishing leesville this weekend so i don't think i'll make it down.

  5. I was using a 1/16 oz jig tipped with half a crawler. Seems to be the best method for me there...Not had much luck with anything else for them elusive eyes!!

    Although, its nice to hear that someone has at least caught some fish of decent size!! Maybe they're getting bigger...I sure hope so. It gets to be a bummer pulling in 12-13 inch eyes when you're looking for some dinner!! ;)
