About what time of year or temperature do the eyes start running? Planning on heading to fremont in the morning chasing steel but I’m just way more into walleye so I wouldn’t mind tossing a jig with a grub or floater setup for a while when we are there. I’m very new to river fishing so I’m trying to get all the info I can

www.maumeetackle.net I know you were asking about the Sandusky, but these two rivers mirror each other pretty well , with the Sandusky usually running just a little ahead of the Maumee. This guy gives a daily report on the Maumees conditions. Right now its high, fast , cold and muddy. It came within a foot of flood stage with the snow melt. I wouldnt get in it. It's the debris that will get you. Theres whole tree trunks flying down that river in the spring Wont be long tho. Check this site every day , When the Maumee starts up , the Sandusky should be already going

You'll get some coming up the maumee and sandusky with higher water. Everyone always says males first but I 100% disagree. I lived on and fished the maumee for 25 years and our first eyes were always smaller 21in to 24in females. Earliest we pulled a decent amount of fish was Valentines day. Don't remember what year that was though

I have caught fish out of the Sandusky in Early March. I imagine they were resident fish as the temps were well below what is needed to get the run going. Probably have a much better shot at some sort of “eye” in the Ohio well before the rivers up north....IMHO
