Mannn I just want one over 5 ? I now know first hand about the pigs in GL

Beltzville has some pigs too... I have seen two 8's caught recently and one that was probably close to DD's lost at the yak.

Fished a tournament Saturday at Promised land state park.  I caught 28 bass, 20 pickerel, a perch and a 17" crappie that was about 2 pounds.  I only managed a bag of 7.25 pounds in all those bass.  Total dink fest but it was fun!

Nice, Adam.  My buddies and I usually fish Shohola or they hike into Little Egypt.  They're going up in mid-September and staying on Fairview Lake  I'm going to be grounded because of knee replacement surgery.  I'll keep Promised Land in mind for next May and maybe give it a shot.

Egypt is an awesome lake and I have only heard good things about shahola. I definitely want to try there. Promised land is great, you can usually catch some good numbers there

my luck is awful, just had a 6+ shake me free on my 3oz wake bait. i treated it like a crank bait and played her light, loosened the drag and reeled into it. apparently i should have stuck her hard and just cranked her in. absolutely sick, my luck has been awful this year

Yeah, its actually easier landing swimbait fish on shore than a boat.  Netting them by yourself sucks balls.  I lost an easy 8 pounder a week ago in Beltzville trying to wheel it into the yak and net it in the dark. Those baits weigh too much to screw around

lesson learned man, the rod loaded up completely. i shouldve just put the hammer down and swung then cranked her in. tried to play it out and lost my pb. she slurped a big wake like it was nothing

Finally had enough free time to make the drive up to the nox. On my way I stopped by that shop anglers pro shop for the first time. Very nice selection of megabass. Picked up a few jerk baits and a dark sleeper. The dark sleeper was producing but that weed guard is a joke. But yeah I'll be buying more haha. I'm turning into a megabass fan and it's really hurting the pockets.

Any other fall reports? Been a little busy but looking to get back out on the water...

blue marsh has finally gettin turned on. not full swing yet but almost there. past week ive been having some lackluster days. but yesterday caught about 6 bass one was 2.5lb and another was 4lb. a 2ft musky was also caught. i think the wind helped alot. all my fish were on a buzzbait and spinnerbait. wouldnt touch the squarebill or lipless? i actually thought that would be the ticket.hopefully better days will come. hopefully will get to the nock for the fall bite.

Where can I try for some Smallmouth and Walleye near Lancaster?

 

I have been going to the Falmouth Boat Launch recently but have only been getting a single Walleye after 3-4 hours from the bank each time.
