  1. Ok thanks Big Gull fishing is bad also, at least for us last fall.
  2. Is this the Gull Lake near Northbrook Ont.
  3. They were always around, in the spring and fall they were thick. In 2014 they were so numerous you could cast and bring in 2 or 3 of them hooked on your lure at times. they were maybe 2 to 4 inches long. I stood on the bank of the Ohio river for an hour one day as a continuous stream 4 or 6 feet wide of Shad hugging the bank swimming down river. Hardly any since then. Heavy rains and high water is the thing that may be messing up the spawn in spring. I don't know. It was the 1st of August before the rivers around here finally dropped to normal levels and cleared up this last year.
  4. We used to have lots of shad here in the Ohio river, very few the last five years. Not sure why that is.
  5. Any one seen these propane powered out boards from Mercury? I don't know how to put a link on here.
  6. They are in the Ohio River but nothing like in years past. After 911 the stocking program ceased I suppose because of budget cuts. back in the mid 80s on you could catch stripers and saugeye at will. Waiting on the fall run now but the last few years it's been pretty much non existent.
  7. We have them around town here in south east Ohio.
  8. We went to Big Gull lake near Northbrook Ont. in Sept. I couldn't believe how small they were. 12 or 14 inches long. A guy was telling us about the one that got away and he said you won't believe this but I bet that pike was 2 feet long. I haven't been there since 2006 and the fishing was getting bad then I thought but man I couldn't believe it. The lake is as beautiful as it ever was but the fishing pressure must be relentless. Big boats every where and blast by you at full tilt 20 yards away. How far north or west do you have to go these days to get into fishing like it was 30 or 40 years ago.
  9. Ok thanks you guy's, I've read up on it, I thought it would be nice to get some first hand info if I could.
  10. I was diagnosed with parkinsons in 2013, I'm about maxed out on my meds and the relief time they provide keeps shorter and shorter. My last visit to the neurologist at the Cleveland clinic they suggested DBS (deep brain stimulation) surgery. I was wondering if anyone here has had this procedure done or know anyone who has. Thx.
  11. It's shallow mostly and alot of weeds. We fish all over the lake,normally in June.
  12. We usually stay at Hyatts Glennhaven on the shallow end of the lake. We have never been up there this time of the year. Do you jig a lead head with a twister tail?
  13. Walleye and Bass will be what we are fishing for.
  14. looks like we will be up there September 7th or 8th for a week. I was wondering what lures may be best to try. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
