Default Oswego Report Sunday 3/28

Went on in late in the afternoon, just started to drizzle when I got there. Looked around and the only spot that looked reasonable was a large eddy that had formed downstream from where the creek enters the fox. Everyplace else was just ripping with current.

Got into my waders and started in. Lots of fish jumping on the inside of the eddy line. Using a small Heddon sonic (beleive that is the name). A few hits, and then it started coming down in buckets. I wouldn't have bothered going out if it had been that way when I looked at the river. Thinking to myself that this is kinda of thing that people serious about fishing would be doing, and bang, get a nice fish on.

I usually only get small ones, but this one must of gotten confused by the heavy rain and thought I was a real fisherman. Netted him and took him up on shore and guesstimating from my foot size was an honest 14 inches and very broad. Probably my biggest to date from the Fox.

Gently released him and started back at it, but KA-BOOM, Thunder. Went up on shore and waited about ten minutes in one of the shelters. There was no more thunder, so I went back out. KA-BOOM another one. Decided to call it quits. No fish is worth getting hit by lighting. The rain had turned cold anyway and the fish activity and also stopped.

They are almost done on the work in the park there on the North side of 34. They have put in playground equipment, and some shelters. They took away the PortaPottie (probably was only for the workmen). They have also put up some big stone fencing with iron bars. Looks like the catfishermen are eventually going to be locked out at night.

Best regads,

Default Heddon Sonic

John: You did a good job to catch any fish in these conditions. A heddon sonic would seem like a good bait, it creates a lot of vibration, and under the muddy water conditions, that's a good choice of lures. I through some cranks and husky jerks Saturday, but no takers. Didn't seem they could see them very well. Water temp in the low 50's, so they should be hitting lures. I may wait until the river clears up a bit before going out again.
