I just don't get the Maumee thing...
simply right here in our back yards almost every dam on lots of rivers hold eyes.  I fish at night and usually alone....
a limit is a limit.  find a dam and fish it.  sylvan, Huntington, salamonie, every damn along the st joe from mottville to berrien springs.  there are quality fish to be had. most is just casting and drifting ...but I love just being alone in the dark. and the quality is there also.  I have a 13 on the wall from Berrien springs.  the fish start showing up in late Jan and are at these places now.  to each their own but there are so many other places closer that just seem more enjoyable
to each their own dog.....

No serious fisherman is going to deny the presence of saugeye and walleye in our local waters.  I have large ones, over 8 lbs, within 5 minutes of my house in Fort Wayne.

That being said it's nothing like being at Maumee, like it or not.  The amount of large fish within your cast on a good run day will add up to all the fish you could catch in a season in the local holes.  4 fish are 4 fish but there's nothing like fishing the Maumee.

Lack of planning on your part in NO way constitutes an EMERGENCY on mine

Yeah, I still remember when they discovered a few years back that one of the largest contribution of waste in the river was coming from the resident waterfowl population.

yes, we need some major goose reductions around here. lol


whats really funny is how people view the fishing.  they wont eat fish from the river, but they will feed those same toxic tens to their children from the big lake.  :-\   seems funny how most, if not all, the rivers feeding erie have consumption advisories on them, yet the lake is magically safe to most?  im betting there has been some down playing by government agencies about those big erie eyes. one Canadian study shows mercury, in fish, could actually be is on the rise.

 Catch what you can where you can and fry em hard. If you start having trouble when your 80 find a pill that works. Too much worry about nothing. Yea there is good fishing around ft wayne just shake the tampons of your hook and keep casting. Don't forget your phone for a photo.
