Maumee River Water Level

The cooler weather and rain the last few days has caused the water temp in all the local bodies of water to drop.  The river is down to 68 degrees and even the Lake Erie surface temperature has dropped to 73 degrees  and falling.  This temp drop has already noticeably affected fishing for the better in the river and local ponds . Most especially the Small mouth and largemouth bass activity has gotten better.

I have had good reports from all over that the smallmouth have been biting all sorts of baits , spinners, small crankbaits, and live crawfish.  Catfish are still very active biteing shad , shrimp,night crawlers and stinkbaits.  Now just waiting to hear if  this cool weather has the crappie bite on.


  1. Yes we are able to process firearms transfers at this time ,and yes we are able to order firearms in at this time. See yesterdays post , or give me a call
  2. Yes we will price match our competitors prices on firearms.  We will do our best to try and save you some money.
  3. If you have clean lead for sale just bring it in and we will weigh it out and buy it.  My scale can handle up to 500 lbs so bringing in the big chunks is fine.
  4. SWAP MEET-  Sat Sept 29th- still need vendors to sign up . Lots of interest to come shop, but need people to sell their stuff to make this work. Like I said if we dont have signups by  Monday the 24th I may have to cancel the event.


Lake Erie

Not much to report -the weather has been pretty bad out there the last few days. But the cooler temps should turn these yellow perch back on as soon as the winds die down and the water clears a bit.
