    Hello all:


    Went out last night (Saturday) for a few hours on the Maumee. River looked good, it wasn't running too high. Me and Penaut (my dog and trusty fishing companion) fished two different spots with no action. We were fishing some large live suckers, and it was a real bummer too, beacusae for once a dozen large suckers stayed alive all night in my bait bucket. Oh well, there will be plenty more good nights this summer. Man, it felt good to be out there though! If anyone else has been out on the Maumee or in the area, let me know if you've done any good.

    Isn't the Maumee a good spring walleye river?

    the maumee river is an excellent walleye river in the spring Blacky. I have been up there a few times myself. Not gonna make it this year though due to planning other trips to the ohio river for flatheads. Gas prices are just too high to go everywhere! rollo

    Forget it, the walleye fishermen are shoulder-to-shoulder. I just drove over the river today, and it's thick with walleye fanatics. I even saw a concession stand set up along the river. Wish they would kick up that much dust for the native flatheads, but maybe it's better they didn't. Rollo, where did you fish when you came to the Maumee, just curious.

    Michigan-tough state for flatheads.

    I heard there are not many rivers that have them.

    Yeah, there are only a handful of rivers on the Southwest side of the state that have flatheds. I know the St. Joseph, Kalamazoo, Grand, and Muskegon Rivers hold them, as well as Muskegon Lake. For me, the closest place to fish is Northwest Ohio. I've done pretty well, but am always looking to do better. Hoping to acquire a boat this summer, maybe that will increase my chances.
