It’s usually Sauger time at the Ohio River in December – unless Mother Nature puts a damper on things and she did just that! Rained for a week! The Ohio River isn’t flooded at present but its still muddy since last week’s high water conditions. Muddy water is not the best conditions to catch Sauger (however Sauger will bite in muddy water). So, we chose not to fish Meldahl.
Since Saugeye are being stocked in many lakes in Southwestern Ohio Chad and Dad decided to fish Rocky Fork Lake Sunday. The Lake was clear and 40 degrees. We located a few Saugeye and stayed active throughout the whole day. No wind and overcast. Caught a lot of small ones and had a lot of fun. Saugeye were “nipping” on our baits and biting “finicky”…but we did manage to catch several nice fish.
Chad and Dad love catching “toothy” fish in the Winter! The cold water bite is a lot of fun. Whether Sauger, Saugeye, or Walleye they are all a lot of fun to catch. Goes on all Winter if Mother Nature permits.
Fresh fish for supper tonight -m-m-m-m-m.
Enjoy life fishing in Southwestern Ohio. We appreciate you sharing life with us. The Ohio River should be in good shape in days to come.
