Maumee River Smallmouth

Discussion in 'Northwest Ohio Fishing Reports' started by trane, Jun 7, 2004.

  1. 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,
