went stream fishing in yellow creek the other week, just outside toronto, for some smallies. when i was there it had just rained alot and the ohio was very high moving faster than normal it appeared. when fishing for smallies we were using 6 - 8 inch shad caught with a cast net and the strangest thing happened. for about 2 hours my buddy and i ran into a school of stripers, or hybrids, im not sure but it seemed a little odd that we were catching these beasts in a creek. I figured that maybe the fish were taking shelter in the smaller creek, or possibly spawning? I'm not to sure the behavior of this fish but I do know they were crushing these shad. We were using medium weight spinning rods, and I'll tell you these fish are fighters! I had many hooked but only landed 3 lots of them broke my 6lb fireline like it was 2lb mono, or straightened my hooks like they were aluminum. I've only fished on purpose for these guys twice and fell in love with there strength. Does anyone know why we ran into these fish on this little creek, and does anyone know a consistent method of finding these fish? any help would be appreciated Thanks.
