  1. River conditions: 2/16/09

    the river level is at 586 1/2 feet above sea level. Down four and one half feet from 2/14/09. The ice is gone. The water clarity is poor. Water temp. Is at 38.0 degrees. Down 2.5 degrees from 2/14/09.
     
  2. Went to orleans today just to check it out. Did about 20 casts, one snag.... too lazy and cold to retie. A different car pulled through about every 30 seconds to check it out. Seems like everyone is anxious.

  14. No those all melted when we had weather 60 degrees 4 days in a row
     
  15. Thanks MA i figured there still be some. I havent been over the maumee in awhile. My buddy that lives in the point said there was alot in the bay, so i just figured there would still be some. Im stoked, i hope i poured enough egg sinkers this year.
     
  16. Sounds good to hear about the river again, getting laid off april 1st, PERFECT TIMING, LOL
     
  17. Went to Orleans for 20 minutes and swung through Meigs. 8-10 guys fishing, didnt see anything caught but was only there briefly. The parking lot was like a Mcdonalds drive thru with all the people swinging by for a peak.
