MAUMEE BAIT AND TACKLE IS CELEBATING ITS 25TH ANNIVERSARY !
25TH ANNUAL MAUMEE TACKLE WALLEYE TOURNAMENT HAS MOVED TO SUNDAY APRIL 12TH
Well many of us have been wondering when the Spring Walleye Run is going to start. Right now we are looking at a warnming trend in the extended forecast . They are calling for low to mid 40s starting Saturday March 7th with the temprature heading for high 40s middle of next week. This warming trend may be the start of the river ice begining to move. Now once the ice does does move/melt we will start seeing some action once the water temprature reaches near 40 degrees .We will keep you updated daily as to any changes in conditions.
The new 2015/ 2016 Ohio Fishing licenses are available for purchase. Remember that your 2014 license expired Saturday Feburary 28 so you will need your new 2015 license to fish . Ohio residents 16-65 are $19.00. Ohio residents 66 and over are $10.00. As in past years, try to bring your old license with you to speed up the process. CASH is the ONLY form of payment ACCEPTED for your Ohio License.
We have recieved more positive reports this week of guys gettin into the fish .The ponds and reservoirs all have safe ice on them, just make sure you use good judgement before stepping out. A few places that might be worth trying are Delta Res, Swanton Res, Oak Openings, Olander Park, and Findlay Res. As we said have also heard good reports of bluegill and some perch being caught on Waseon Resivour. If you want a place for blue gills a good spot to try might be East Harbor State Park. East Harbor is located in Catawaba Island. If you like to fish out of state head up to Devils or The Irish Hills. The big lake (Lake Erie) has good ice on it. (15-18 in with reports of 20in or more in some spots). We have reports of good wallye being taken as close as 2 mile out from Metzgars Marsh. and some guys saying they might try in even a bit closer. Most of the guys coming in say they are preping for a good weekend out on the ice with most leaving out of Crane Creek and Metzgars Marsh. A few have mentioned leaving out of Anchor Point as well .
We have all your ice fishing bait and gear so come on by and stock up for your next trip out (waxies, red spikes, white spikes, mousies, shiners, and meal worms) It is a good idea to call a couple days ahead to get bulk containers of bait, that way we can guarantee we have them in stock. For any questions just give us a call and Ryan or Mario will be happy to help you. And remember we cant fish as often as we like so we like to hear fishing reports as well.
Be safe and good luck fishing.
