    Had this been in the Northeast, it would have said "The Cuyahoga's on Fire, AGAIN!!!"



    Has caught walleyes in the Maumee.
  4. I've heard that wading to the islands is possible but one needs to take caution. Young or inexperianced waders should stay on the banks and not try to cross to the islands. the water inbetween the islands can get moving pretty quickly and for someobdy not use to it it can knock them off thier feet. The water level should be receeding alittle. but with the possiblility of rain come Wed. it might be heading back up again, keep and eye out for that, I'm planning on going down, wed. after work about 5:00 for a couple hours. Sounds like spring has sprung and the walleye run is starting to get geared up.
  5. I went down there at lunch today and people where catching fish from New Orleans all the way down to Jerome road. It has turned on and I can not get there until this weekend :(. Crossing bluegrass was possible but you need to use caution because it is deep there right now (not so much deep as moving fast). Just what I know and I am seeing down there. Sometimes it is really bad to work soooo close to the river. lol.
  6. much easier to cross to island as river has dropped a foot or so. Guess it was a much better bite this morning than afternoon, a friend only got 2 after I told him about the morning bite. I seen a guy this morning fishing from shore at shroeders and he had 2 on his stringer when I left. Gotta go got walleye in the oven :p
  7. I was able to cross over to bluegrass (I'm 5'4") yesterday. Got one jack-but some others had their limits. Water is going at a pretty good clip, so go at it carefully.
  8. I fished bluegrass and saw a few limits. I struck out again. The fish are there I just seem to have forgotten how to catch them.
  9. Got another limit this morning at shroeders, took an hour today, took a 5 pound female and she was still hard, bright colors again and lots of snags, lost alot of jigs today as the river is coming down. Alot of people catching limits. Good luck to you all !!!!.
  10. I would like to come up and catch some eyes this weekend. Never have fished the river before. Where are some of these spots? I will be coming up 75. Could you give me some info?

  11. Thank Heavens the limit is 3, otherwise they would be all gone in a couple of years! Walleye fever will do strange things to normally decent folk.
  12. let them females go and have there hatch!!my view.

    your post and your signature don't mix very well...
  14. the maumee is not the only thing on fire.
    walleye are being cought other places as the 10-14 pound range.
    this makes for a good fight.
  15. the honey holes are your best bet .need a spot with a good drift.
  16. Sounds like you had a good time and have the main ingredient for a nice meal.
  17. Coolhunter,

    I did not really see any specific anwers here for you on how to get to the fishing on the Maumee. It has been several years for me but the place that I usually went for starters was at Sidecut Park. To get there coming up 75 you will veer left onto 475 heading toward Maumee. A short distance ahead you will cross the Maumee River. Take the next exit and turn right. I believe you go up to the next light and hang another right to head down in to the park. Sidecut has quite a bit of parking stretched all along the road. From this spot your best fishing is by crossing over onto the island and fishing the other side of the island where the main part of the river runs. Once you get to the parking you will have no problem finding the fishing. Just follow the crowds.;) Here is a little heads up for you. Be prepared for HUGE crowds of fishermen and be willing to fish elbow to elbow unless you can make it up on a weekday. The crowds are the main reason that I have not been back in so long.

    Good luck to you!
  18. Coolhunter,

    Do a Yahoo map of Maumee and you can easily find Sidecut Park just past the river and north or 475. You can print the map out to give you better detail instructions.

    I hope this helps.
  19. Head to 475 (23 north), get off at route 24 head towards maumee, at your 2nd light take a right, go down to broadway st. go right and the park is 1/4 mile away. All the tackle you need is right there on broadway along river, if you come on the weekend it will be packed, good luck to you.
