Blade baits, blade baits, blade baits. Why mess with the minnows!! Limits everytime. Thanks Reel Naughty for the advice last week on the blades. They were the trick this weekend. We fished over in the Maumee Bay about a mile south of the Toledo Light house in 13-13.5 feet of water. No shallower, no deeper. Couldn't keep them off the blades. We used 3/4 oz yellow blades with black accents. A lot of others were using purple hairs with a minnow or were trolling, but why even mess with that when you can hammer em' with artificial. $40 for the Ohio tag but it is well worth it. Took the whole family(five of us) yesterday and limited out in 1.5 hours. Friday morning, 3 man limit is 45 minutes(and that included missing about 4 at the boat and several miss hits). Unbelievable!!!!! No fishing today though, too tired and needed some rest. Working overtime all week to pay for gas.
