While fishing LaDue reservoir today, in southern Geauga county in NE Ohio, I saw 3 little weasel things running around on the dam. I had seen one once before on the dam about 2 months ago, and I thought it was a young otter. I know there are otters in the area as my grandma used to live in Mantua on Eagle creek and there was a family of otters there when I was a kid and we'd play on their mudslide into the creek. Ladue is not far from there. Well today I got a better, closer look. These were not young otters. All 3 were the same size and about a foot long or so. Maybe 16 inches if the tail was longer than it looked. I would say they were the size of a ferret. They were dark brown, and had a tail maybe 6 inches long. They were definately a weasel type animal. They were cute and running all up and down and through the limestone boulders the dam consisted of. I even threw a rubber worm up oin a rock right by one of the guys and he rushed right over to it and momentarily picked it up! I did not dare to set the hook! (THAT would be a fun release!) My guess would be a mink or a weasel, or maybe a marten. But I did not think any of these creatures lived in Ohio. If they do, they most undoubtadely have to be rare. Any ideas? With the success I am having trapping groundhogs this past week in my backyard (see other posts in lounge), I could go after these guys too and maybe start up a fur pelt business!
