It’s about that time let’s see’em! This girl was stressed out took her a few minutes to leave!
I’ve never caught a Northern in the Mahoning but have caught a few Muskie in my days of Walleye fishing below the spillway. Used to love that place, haven’t fished there in years. Remember going downstream by the big rock shoulder to shoulder during the spring run. Good times!Looks like the Mahoning to me.
That's a nice one. I got one that size last summer from the river that creek connects too. It was nice surprise. I caught it on 75 whopper popper while smallie fishing. I get a lot of mudd puppy bites using cut bait in that creek in the winter. Although, I only go out to walk the dog in the winter anymore. I'm moving south soon, can't stand the winter anymore.
I usually throw strictly HJ10’s-HJ14’s and I don’t slow roll them. Couple jerks to get it down where I want it then, steady reel, 2-3 jerks pause, reel, 2-3 jerks pause, repeat. IMO I think this triggers the reaction strikes. Good luck man!What are you throwing thisis time of the year? Im thinking slow rolling a husky jerk type bait or a swimbait.
