    My dad is comming down to columbus monday night. He lives up near lake erie. I thought i'd take him around to some fishing spots, he mentioned about catching saugeye or bass. Are they still hitting this time of year and if so, what places around columbus could I go catch them. I know at o'shaug ive caught both of them, and also thinking about doing some monday nite catfishing too.

    Dan,Probably the best technique right now for saugeyes near Columbus is to tightline with minnows in windblown flat areas at Alum. Check the OGF site under "new technique". They've been raving about their catches up there this past week with this technique at Alum. Good luck man!

    Dan go as much as your Dad wants to go, for me I wish I could still take him out. My father fished for carp most of the time but I wish I could still have some time with him.
