    I know everyone is out after the eyes right now but I haven't been having any luck with them. I headed up to Antrim to see if any Steelhead were still around. Fished for around hour and 45 mins. I could see fish everywhere but it was almost an impossible bite. I managed to catch 2.

    I threw everything in the tackle box at the fish. Power Bait fished 18" off the bottom was how I got the 2 you see. I could see fish anywhere from 12" to 36" all over the place. Some would follow a crankbait, others a spoon and still others a spinner but no bites. Two very random isolated bites on the Power Bait.(yellow color) Good Luck.

    Nice fish, those are some nice ones for sure. I had a ? though. The Steelhead I catch up at Erie are all silver, and those appear to be a Rainbow Trout color. I always thought that Rainbow,Brown, and steelhead were types of trout like LM,SM,white bass, are all bass. Just curious.
     
  7. Nice fish and pics. Maybe a cple of em just before they are eaten.

    Steelhead are Rainbow Trout. It is just a name for the color variation found up in the lake (or in the Ocean) when they are returning to spawn.

    Actually I believe steelhead are a different strain that migrates from the lake to the rivers to spawn. Bows or Steel, those are nice ones from the ODNR release.
