    yep.big walnut and little walnut both.big walnut gets the bulk of the run,though i've caught them in both creeks.i have as much fun jump fishing them on the main lake in summer,when they're bustin' shad.
    it's run & gun fun chasin' the schools :cool:

  10. hey wall if you want to hook up when the w/b start I could show you some good spots at Deer Creek if you show me some at Walnut? When they are in full swing I usually go a few times after work and on Saturdays also.
     
  11. cool....ive never did the deercreek run....
    and sundays are great for me..thats my church time....fishing church that is. :D
    dont that run start before hoovers????
    it seem like i hear the deercreek run just befor the hoove/walnut run.

  12. Not sure since I've never fished the Walnut run. I'll start checking it out in the next few weeks and let ya know. The last few years there has not been much of a w/b run but the crappie have been GREAT! I've been catching crappie up in the creek like you get the w/b and they get bigger and bigger each year. So if we dont get into the w/b we will at least get into some crappie.
     
  13. thats cool...just let me know. im heading to maumee this friday and then on april 3. and maybe one more trip in mid april. then its white bass all the way.

  14. Good luck at Maumee and I'll be in touch about the w/b. How big are the ones you get out of Walnut? Deer Creek seems to run pretty small for the most part but still fun on light gear plus every year there are a few wipers that are caught.
     
  15. Those look like some pretty good sized ones. 17" is a Fish Ohio right?
     
  16. i think so...
    but that was a bad day...some guys were walking out with 100 or more..all
    that size... :D

  17. That would be an AWSOME day! I dont really like to clean more than 50 or so. I'll keep a bunch one trip and then release them the rest of the time so I just have to clean fish once.
     
  18. i hear ya...it took some time with the 15 in the pic....
    i one day when my kids get bigger i'll show them how to clean fish...lol
    one time was on a head boat for perch and had 30 perch to clean...man i'll never do that... :rolleyes:
    but we'll hook up for the run..its a blast.

  19. I have sat with my dad and cleaned buckets full of bluegills, perch, crappie, white bass, smelt... I know there have been times we have cleaned over 100 gills! Not much fun but we will get a big mess of fish early in the spring or whenever we get into something really good and then just clean fish that one or two times for the whole year. Kinda sucks cleaning fish for a few hours but if I only do it once or twice a year and have enough fish for several good fish frys its not bad.
