I just moved down in Monroe County (Ottawa Lake) I was hunting up near Brighton and Pinckey so this is a new area for me and from what I can tell there are not very many places to head out to.
I was out scouting this weekend at erie state game area and the surrounding marsh. (Didn't have my boat just on foot poking around) I talked to a few people who suggested heading out into the north Maumee bay, woodtick peninsula and some of the surrounding islands. I'm assuming the hunting pressure is pretty heavy but what I'm concerned about is taking my boat out there.
Most people I talked to said I should be fine but I keep reading different reports of how the water can get rough.
I have a 12' Jon boat with a electric outboard.
I noticed that the water in the bay is pretty shallow (according to a fishing map I have only between 5-7 feet)
Obviously I have my reservations, but I saw kayakers and other small boats when I was out.
Anyone who is familiar with the area - I would really appreciate some help. I'm not looking for hunting spots, just want to know if I'll be safe.
