Another good day of fishing for those that went out and braved the prediction of rain.Â Green on green was the hot color, saw limits coming in early again and then it was pretty steady most of the day with the evening bite turning on hot with many limits right on til last cast.
Many calls asking if the white bass are running(No)Â and what date they will be here(Dont know). Well they are governed by water temp just like the walleye.Â White bass migrates up most of the Western Basin tributaries from Lake Erie each year to spawn. The Sandusky, Maumee, and Portage rivers typically have the most white bass moving up in the spring. White bass may be found in the rivers from mid-April, toward the end of the walleye spawning run, through early June. The peak of the run is usually sometime in mid-May when water temperatures reach around 55 degrees.
BUT RIGHT NOW ITS STILL WALLEYE FISHING TIME !
Today we should see Jerome rd rapids, Button wood and Bluegrass be the hot spots again.
Have fun be safe and good luck fishing.
