Made it out in the muddy Maumee tonight. The water has come down tons and it is fishable although muddy. I fished tubes around sidecut Metro and caught a few smallmouth. They wanted it real slow. So slow that I didn't catch my first fish until I was dealing with a nice tangle (gotta love spinning reels) and one grabbed my tube. I had to handline it in. I learned my lesson and looked for the slack water and dragged it slow.

The gar are also breeding in the Buttonwood rapids. There were tons of them. Kind of a strange sight to see them all squirming up the shallow water.

I also came across a snake. I didn't get close enough to see what species, but I was glad to have waders on. Although, it sure was warm.

tight lines,

trane
