Went there with family yesterday, fished with night crawler under a floater. Most of the bites are drums and baby catfish. I just wonder what do you guys use for cats at grand rapids dam? If you use chicken liver, how do you hook it?
Try shiners. The cats love "em and so does everything else that swims up there. The cats in the Maumee are more predatory than say cats in a lake and feed on alot of live fish. Catch alot on bass baits like Big O's and wee-craws. Not to say they won't hit chicken livers, especially in calmer water, but I think they're more fish oriented in the current and faster moving pools. Just my opinion from past experience.
Once again, with live bait, I'm a big proponent of circle hooks if you plan on letting your fish go. Cuts way down on fish mortality with live bait.
