Mahi-Mahi 35 lbs on 12 lb Test1

AAAHI EVERYONE ! GARY HERE. FISHING HAS BEEN PRETTY GOOD FOR MOST. DEPENDS ON THE ANGLER I GUESS. PLENTY OF CHANNEL CATS HAVE BEEN CAUGHT. ALSO A FEW FLATHEADS. SMALLMOUTH FISHING HAS BEEN SLOW TO FAIR. MY FRIEND RUSS AND I WENT FISHING FOUR DAYS AGO. WE STARTED AT VAN TASSEL ACCESS. SMALLMOUTH IS WHAT WE ARE AFTER. WE WERE USING CONTEN CORDELL BIG-O'S. WE FOUND FISHING VERY SLOW. RUSS CAUGHT THREE SMALLMOUTH AND ONE WALLEYE THAT WEIGHED AROUND 3 1/2 lbS. I CAUGHT ONE SMALLIE. NORMALLY VAN TASSEL ACCESS CAN BE GOOD. IN THE PAST I HAVE HAD PLENTY OF 10 TO 25 FISH DAYS. SOME BASS WOULD BE THREE TO FOUR lbs. IT SAD TO SAY, BUT I THINK IT'S OVER FISHED. SO WE MOVED TO BLUEGRASS ISLAND. FIRST THING I SEE THERE IS A FAMILY WITH 7 SMALLMOUTH ON ONE STRINGER AND THREE ON ANOTHER. NONE OF THEM LOOKED TO BE NEAR 14'' THE LEGAL SIZE LIMIT. SOME LOOKED TO BE 10''. AND NO, I DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING TO THEM. THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO OR THE D.N.R.. SO AS PISSED OFF AS I WAS I JUST MINED MY OWN BUSINESS AND FISHED. USING THE BIG-O I CAUGHT FIVE CHANNEL CATS, SHEEPHEAD, WHITE BASS, WHITE PERCH AND SPOTTED GARS. RUSS CAUGHT ANOTHER SMALLMOUTH AND A LARGE SUCKER AND A CARP. AND OF COURSE WE RELEASED OUE FISH. I THINK THIS IS WHATS HAPPENING TO OUR SMALLMOUTH POPULATION. PEOPLE STRING THEM UP. NO FISH. PEOPLE STOP FISHING FOR THEM BECAUSE IT'S NO GOOD. POPULATION RECOVERS AFTER A FEW YEARS. WORD GETS OUT. MEAT HUNTERS SHOW UP AND TAKE FISH OUT. NO FISH. THESE SMALLMOUTH ARE RESIDENT FISH. THEY ARE NOT FROM LAKE ERIE HERE TO SPAWN. THERE IS A CLOSED SEASON EARLIER IN THE YEAR, BUT IF WE HAVE HIGH WATER DURING SPAWN THAT YEARS SPAWN IS LOST. MOST OF THE SMALLMOUTH THAT ARE GETTING STRUNG UP ARE THERE BECAUSE ANOTHER ANGLER RELEASED IT. THE D.N.R. HAS NO INTEREST IN MAKING THE MAUMEE RIVER A TROPHY FISHERY. THEY WOULD HAVE TO CHANGE THE RULES. ONE FISH PER ANGLER DAILY OVER 16''. BUT THATS TO COMPLICATED. SIMPLE FOR US, BUT TO COMPLICATED FOR THE D.N.R.. IT IS WHAT IT IS. HAVE A GREAT DAY AND THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU KEEP THAT SMALLIE.

2014 MONTHLY CATFISH CONTEST

THE CATFISH CONTEST IS FREE. HEAVIEST CATFISH EACH MONTH WINS A $25 GIFT CERTIFICATE FROM MAUMEE TACKLE. THE HEAVIEST CAT THROUGHOUT THE CONTEST PERIOD ALSO WILL WIN A $50 GIFT CERTIFICATE. THE CONTEST RUNS EACH MONTH. JUNE THRU SEPTEMBER. FLATHEAD CATFISH ARE EASILY KEPT ALIVE BY SUBMERSING THEM IN A COOLER HEAD FIRST AND PUTTING A WET TOWEL OVER ANY PART OF THE FISH THAT IS HANGING OUT OF THE COOLER. A LOT OF FLATHEAD ANGLERS LIKE TO RELEASE THEIR CATS ALIVE. FLATHEADS ARE ALSO EXCELLENT EATING. MUCH BETTER THEN CHANNEL CATS. GOOD LUCK FISHING.

THE WINNER FOR THE JULY CATFISH CONTEST IS MARCUS ROEMELEN OF PERRYSBURG OHIO. MARCUS WAS FISHING IN DEFIANCE OHIO WHEN HE CAUGHT HIS 31.10lb FLATHEAD USING SHRIMP. NICE CATCH MARCUS. MARCUS RELEASED HIS FISH UNHARMED RIGHT AFTER HAVING IT WEIGHED.
