Maumee River

Conditions are pretty steady for the last 2 weeks- its a good time to get out and explore some areas that you have always eyeballed and never checked out.  Some decent smallmouth reports .

The heat of summer can bring some of the toughest fishing of the year. But, according to many experts, much of that toughness is caused by anglers themselves. That’s because far too many believe that all the fish are deep. They aren’t. Many fish, in some cases the biggest ones, head for the heavy weeds and vegetative growth of, June, July, August and September. Such places offer high dissolved oxygen levels, shade and protection from the sun. At the same time they are  near perfect for ambushing prey. That’s all a most fish need to be happy.
