    You seem to have way better luck on the Maumee than I do, if you ever feel like having a tag along let me know. Maybe you could show me what I'm doing wrong out there.

    I was fishing between Providence Dam and Independance Dam. I was using bluegill, chubs, and had 1 sucker about 14 inches, thats what I caught the biggest 1 on. Was using a bullhead about a foot long that had a good run but he spit it out at the bank. Was using balloons for bobbers with bait about 2 feet down.
    You can get your boat in at Mary Jane Thurston marina, it was closed but its open now. Head upstream past the 109 bridgethe skiers and tubbers are pretty bad tillalmost dark but gets real good after they leave and most of them turn around at the bridge.
    I might be going to Providance Damn Tuesday night for channels, if you wanna tag along then let me know. You need to be prepared to wade and possibly get wet falling in a hole, but thats 1 way of finding the hole to fish in.

    Its supposed to rain but if its not storming I'm going. I'll post in this thread and let you know for sure by about 7 or 8 tues night. This is a channel trip, we prob wont see a flat, but I've got a few before going for channels. I usually don' leave the house till 10:30-11 and it takes me about 15 minutes to get to the dam. Ignore the sign that says park closes at 11. Thats Grand Rapids side at Mary Jane Thurston, not Providance park on Rt 24.

    looking like I'm going tonight. I'll be at the dam between 11:15 and 11:30.Bring shoes to wade in, I'll bring the bait. Double check here before going in case those storms roll in too close.

    I went out to providence park, the boat launch area, the dam area, they were all locked. Then I went over by Mary Jane Thurston as well, couldn't find a way to the dam. You'll need to let me know how and where your parking next time.
