It's hunting season.
Squirrel and rabbit, pheasant and quail, and the deer are in mid-rut. Plenty of choices there. But it's worth noting that there's still fishing to be had, and almost certainly a few days of Indian Summer when temperatures will rise at least into the low 60s and the sun will shine over blue sky with fluffy white cumulus clouds. When such days arrive, where should you go? There are lots of choices there, too.
Last week I made the moderately long drive to Mohican State Park and the Mohican River. I drove down to the covered bridge, then downstream to a big pool just before the campground there and parked near a soft drink machine at the parking area's end. It's a nice pool, moderately deep with a riffle that sends oxygenated water into its upstream end that swirls into nice little eddies.
The pool always had a number of good sized white suckers, usually a few small carp, and often a brown trout or two. I baited up a two hook rig with No. 6 snells and a half ounce sinker below, added half a nightcrawler to each and tossed it out. Very shortly the tip bounced and I was attached to a nearly one pound sucker that fought surprisingly well and started a lazy session of bank fishing. You can very likely have much the same luck on the Huron, Vermilion and Sandusky rivers especially the Huron.
