Us OSU folks went out this weekend to collect in some streams near Buckeye Lake.(east-central Ohio) Not too much excitement yet. Here's the list
Central stonerollers-fat and happy
Blackstripe topminnows
Silverjaw minnows
Sand shiners
Striped shiners
Bluntnose minnows
Lots of HUGE creek chubs
One Rockbass
Johnny darters
Fantail darters, some pretty colorful
Surprisingly, no suckers, in what appeared to be very suitable habitat, especially for Hogsuckers. Maybe they're still in deeper waters. We will soon be looking for central mudminnows, does anyone have any tips or tricks for efficiently catching these guys? I have been unsuccessful on solo seining efforts, in known localities. Maybe minnow traps?
