* Our 2018 Walleye Tournament will be held Saturday April 14th with rain/snow date of Saturday April 21st*
Easter is April 1st and Mothers day is May 13th so these dates are optimal .
* In addition, this coming May we will be hosting our first White Bass Tournament- Saturday May 12 rain or shine. We are still hashing out the rules and details of this one but Â it will be an individual not a team event.*
Well this heat has an algae bloom near the mouth of the river in downtown Toledo, but upstream here in Maumee all the way up thru Grand Rapids, OH the river looks good. Clear and full of catfish, bass and walleye. This warm weather has got the smallmouth bass and panfish on the hunt. The heat has all sorts of bugs , bees, crickets and grasshoppers jumping around and the fish are feeding accordingly in the prep for winter. We have seen some good action at the davis overlook just past Ft. meigs and still getting consistently goood reports up Grand Rapids way near the dam.
