WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE BEST RIVER IN OHIO FOR CHANNELS, SIZE AND QUALITY?
I usually dont fish a whole lot of rivers but ive caught some good channels out of the Muskingum and Mohican rivers.
I WOULD HAVE DONE A POLL BUT THERE ARE SO MANY POSSIBILITIES..........:smile2:
The Maumee gets my vote. I have spots where on a good night I can get em as fast as can throw my line in, including several 10-15 lbers a night. Love that fight on anything over 10.
I won't argue with the Maumee. I have seen many nice pictures from that river. If you want quantity come to the Muskingum and throw liver, cutbait, or anything,,,, including left over food! You can't get away from them darn fish!!!! LOL.... rollo
I agree with you on quantity Jason. I've caught alot of small and medium size channels out of the Muskingum, along with a few over 10 and 12 lbs last year. We'll see what this year offers up...
Sad thing is, I only fish in the daytime for channels, at nighttime even on livebaits they often are a nuisiannce.. Gotta sometimes run them big livebaits to keep em away! LOL. I never thought years ago, you would have to change your style , so you wouldn't catch fish! :smile2: rollo
I think the channels on the Muskingum are actually overpopulated, and you would probably catch more bigger fish than a 3-5 pound average if they weren't.. ...rollo
You can if your with me LOL
great miami gets my vote size and quantity
i love to fish in the st joe:smile2:
Hard to answer this one. Springtime can be great fishing on the northern rivers flowing into Lake Erie.
I think most of the rivers are good at specific times but I have to vote for the Maumee
I am the lone voice for the great miami:smile2:
Only someone who's regularly fished ALL the larger rivers in the state could truly say which is the most productive overall for channels. But i'm pretty sure based on sheer numbers (and most likely size as well) of fish it's gotta be the Ohio river. The Muskingum,Scioto,Maumee and Great Miami are all somewhat comparable but the Ohio Is in a league of it's own.
the great state of Ohio has a excellent fishery for channels about all rivers are good to excellent, in my opinion ,of course most of my time is spent on the scioto and the big O, I have caught them from lake erie to the ohio river,
I AGREE FOR SURE! I'M KINDA SPLIT MYSELF BETWEEN LAKE ERIE AND ITS TRIBUTARYS AND THE MAUMEE. I HAVE FISHED THESE THE MOST SO ITS HARD TO SAY
great miami here one i throw liver usually for channels on the gmr largest was caught was 14lb on a half of a hot dog and also caught 5 or 6 channels in a hour on the gmr. Again fishing pressure is their but a good river
Iv got this nice little hole on the little miami river that produces 8 to 10 pounders on a regular basis.
