I fished at the New Richmond boat ramp area for 12 hours this last sept. and got skunked, from bank. 3 1/2 hr. drive. Thinkin about checking the Maumee out in dif. spots. It is only 1 1/2 to a spot I'd like to check out in Defiance. Will def. be back to the ohio though.
It was a GFO tourny-get together. Had great company on the bank. BS'd most of the night. Would of traveled the bank a little but the company was good and a can't see your face fog came in so I decided to stay put.
I've caught 2 dogfish at Fletchers pond in mich. and I will agree they are pure muscle fish, head to tail. It was about 3 lbs. and would of guessed it to be a 6 lb. smallie. While getting the hook out it crapped the nastiest smelling fish crap I've ever seen all over me.
I remember seeing a few dogfish when we lived in Rochester,NY in the 60's. My dad caught some on vacation at Fair Haven Park- Lake Ontario. Seems like they were despised back then, so were carp for that matter.
Catfish, I like them....now. Didn't used to, but they are sort of interesting to go after. Bluecats from the Ohio River are fun this time of year. My fishing buddy & I got a nice one in November. We're still trying to catch another one this year, but conditions have to be just right where the big ones live.
If dogfish got to be 50 lbs. I'd change my liscence plate to "DAWGFISH" LOL Just razzin ya a little katfish. No doubt you have the big catfish experience. Catfish are my fish of choice, used to be bass but pound per fish average is better with cats.
