  1. Well, I'm just about all fished out with the WB run in Fremont and Maumee, caught lots and lots of fish and now that I'm back in my home town I want to concentrate on Crappie...can anyone clue me in to good places to fish for nice sized Crappie from shore/bank out at Hoover...I've been doing pretty well out at Buckeye but that's more of a drive than I'd like to make in that I fish just about everyday after work and Hoover is waaayyyy more convenient...I'm able to save on gas by going to Hoover and I know that there is some premier shore fishing at Hoover...I just don't really know where to look...any help would be appreciated...catch em' all

    I would say the largest part of crappie spawn is now over and they have moved out to deeper water. If I was a bank fisherman, I would be looking at areas near deeper dropoffs such as points near the bridges and the bridge pylons. (Google a lake map for Hoover and do a little research.) Slip bobbers with minnows or crappie nibbles should do the trick.

  3. With the lake as high as it is, I sure as heck wouldn't overlook all that flooded timber. Check the latest HFR. The waders are still getting their fair share.
  4. Alum Crappie are very late this year spawning - I was there last weekend and caught all I wanted in a 3 hour time frame - However, I was in a boat and plan to be there this weekend as well just not sure which day yet.
