I took a day off of work and fished Buttonwood from 10:30 - 1:30 today. I fished about 100 yards downstream from the path out on the rockpile. I caught 4 smallmouth - the biggest was almost 4 pounds (the biggest smallie of my life), a 2 1/2 ponder, and two 1 pounders. Unfortunately I didn't have my digital camera and it wouldn't have mattered because I was fishing by myself anyway. I was tempted to keep the big guy but I let them all go. All were caught on rapalas, both silver/black and gold/black. I tried a spinner, rattletrap, and a jig but didn't have any luck with them. Had the river all to myself, didn't see another fisherman the whole time I was out. It was the first time I've fished the Maumee outside of the walleye run and I was pleasantly surprised. Man, do those fish fight, especially in the fast current. Later.
