    my guess is shad.there's always a big shad kill at ice out.could be other fish,but there will definitely be lots of dead shad floating around with the thaw.

    I saw the piece on the news. It was shad. They made it sound like Armageddon. It's the same old thing we see all the time in the spring.

    bassteaser1 Feared by all that swim

    Any boats out yet?Or is the water still way down?I figure they will keep it low so they can work on 79 ramp
  16. I will be back in a week guys and i will be ready even if only for a short trip whats the best place to drop a boat? other then in the water
  17. Ok guys been checking it out a couple times the water is still down 2 plus feet.They have bubblers around all the docks from the 79 ramp to the boat club to protect the docks from the ice,that water has been open all winter the new ramp is going to have three lanes looks prety nice.The concret is all in all they have to do is some back fill and stuff.It looks like it is about ready for some ( MIS ADVENTURES ! How you doing Rick ? Tight Lines Fishguy

    So I haven't yet heard anyone posting that boats are on Buckeye. I've fished Buckeye a hundred times but never before spring. I've really stepped it up this past year and I've managed to get some type of fishing in all year round. I've got a 17' deep v and live right down the road. Is it safe to put in now? I would be targeting saugeyes, which to me seem pretty aboundant durring warmer months. Do the same spots and methods that work all spring and summer apply right now? If not, what are you looking for? I've got Monday off and would go out regardless of the cold as long as it is safe.

    lee,i'd be doing better if i could get out and wet a line;)
  20. Fished around Leibs last 2 nights, water seems to be perhaps a foot shallower than normal for this time of year, I assume due to the ramp work. Water was a bit clearer tonight but nothing to show for my efforts.

    Plenty of shad floating around and there were a bunch finning over the ramps. Would not take much to have enough for a year's supply of cut bait....or worse.
