Maumee River 6/29/19

Was finally able to get up to the river and do some cat-fishing up at the Maumee River. I new it was going to be a good day when my my son caught his first Fish Ohio of the year on his very first cast. We were slamming them up until about 1:30 this afternoon and then the bite just shut down. In all we caught 28 catfish and 7 of those were Fish Ohio. All fish were released as we was practicing catch and release today.

Cobb Lake 6/4/19

Not the greatest day ever but anytime you can get out and nab your first Fish Ohio of the year it’s still a pretty good day. Caught one bluegill just over 9 inches long and another just under of 9 inches long.

2019 Cast Away Fishing Derby

We held our 4th Annual Cast Away Fishing Derby today, We had a less than usual turn out than normal but we didn’t let that damper our day.  The fishing pond was a muddy mess but all the kids got to catch multiple fish. Special thanks to the MCI Employee Activities Committee for supplying us with food and fishing poles for the kids.

Schoonover Lake 4/27/19

Me and Dave decided to hit Schonover Lake today for trout since everywhere else was pretty much flooded out or the water was dark like chocolate milk. Pink or red seemed to be the color today, we both limited out using red trout nuggets and pink rooster tails.
