Tappen

Discussion in 'Southeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by Saugeye 1, Oct 12, 2007.

  1. I have fished Tappen in years past and did pretty well
    around the bridges with blade baits for Saugeye from
    Sept first thru Thanksgiving.
    Has anyone been doing any good with the Saugeye
    down there.....

    Thanks
     
  2. saugeye how do you fish blade baits at tappan and where are some of the places to fish them. only been to tappan twice and liked it. thanks.
     

  3. theirs been alot of boats at the bridge. But I dont know how their doing
     
  4. I know 2wks ago there were guys jiggin eyes there and Clendening, I dont know about numbers or size, I was just out getting shad...But there must be people catching fish or there wouldnt be that many people out there.

    My Dad an I went out in the rain yesterday. (friday) My mom says we're too dedicated. :D Fished in the rain from 3-7 an got :S We tried trolling, jigging, vibee's, Marked lots of fish by the bridges but couldn't get a bite. We were gonna try bottom bouncers but we the rain was picking up again an we called it quits. Oh and some guy we talked to said he caught a 6lb saugeye trolling last week.
     
  6. I usually use a 5-8 oz blade bait and let it sink to the bottom, take the
    slack out and rip it off the bottom a foot or so and let it sink back to
    the bottom...The best I usually do is around the bridges over 250.
    be prepared though because there's alot of guys fishing this way
    around this time of year at the bridges...
    If your fishing it correctly after a few hours you'll get the
    burning in the elbow....

    Howdy, just curious as to how easy the shad will be to get at Tappan? Catfish Hunter -- Are you fishing the Neocats tourney? Thanks - Tom
     
  8. The shad are getting harder to come by as the nights get colder.

    Saugeye are pretty good from what I've heard. My partner in the bass tournament on sunday hooked a 4lber while throwing a shad rap. Another fellow picked up between a 9-10 lber (so he says) the previous day. I saw several smaller 'eyes caught this week also.
     
  9. I had a nine pounder(saugeye) in the bass tournament that was held the tuesday before the last chance tournament on sunday. I had it weighed on the tournament scale. BIG FILLETS!!:B
