Eastern PA Fishing Reports


Recommended Posts

Hitting up Blue Marsh tomorrow, hope to catch some off the rocks on lipless cranks and jigs. If not, I'll try some finesse! Would love to catch my first smallie of the year

Decided not to take the hour drive to Marsh or the nox and instead fish in places near me that's the size of thier parking lots. I caught this in a small Shallow pond that's less that 1000 ft long and less than 100 ft wide.

Was at Marsh endlessly throwing a chatterbait and spinnerbait with nothing to show. then towards the end of the cove as i was lifting my chatterbait out of the water i see a muskie follow it. I drop it back into the water and i see her swim back and hammer it. Had her thrashing for a second or two then she spits the hook. Im now drinking away the pain.

I feel your pain ... these things always seem to happen with big fish ... my dad always said the reason they get big is that THEY'RE LUCKY !!

This weather sucks!

amen to that. if it stayed like it was the last couple days, the new moon should've pushed the big girls shallow. not happening with 4" of snow up here. That being said, scouted a river I wanna drop a drift boat in. only 50 yards wide and hecka current, but good potential.

 

 

Also, buddy of mine is headed to blue marsh tomorrow for his first time. Any advice I can give him? Ive never been there myself.

I can’t seem to ever get on them good there. Bruce has been killing it up there. Best advice I can give is fish the main lake and use your electronics

whats been the only thing working for me lately?? waking up early and fishing the slick water with buzzbaits around cover and rocks. and shallow cranks. i also think blue marsh has been crazy pressured in a short period of time.

Crazy they’re eating a buzz bait already. I wouldn’t even have thought to throw one this early with how the weather has been

yeah in certain areas... i got some looks from other fisherman?, but i caught 4 on it paralleling the bank , till it got too windy. as long as its a warming trend, shallow. the shad are shallow going back and forth along the rock bank. all the bass im catching are warm too. mostly 12-15" no giants yet with it.

Swimming in water this cold for a fish isn't always a good idea.  Glad you got her safely.

Which lake is easier to fish with only a trolling motor, nock or marsh creek? Dang hp limit, wanting to hit some new lakes besides BM.

marsh is wider but way shorter than the nox. you can cover marsh in a trolling motor but it'll be hard covering the nox length wise.

Yes it was a dumb idea but I only swam a few feet. I’d feel terrible leaving the fish knowing it was still on.

Thanks tone. I think I’m gonna try nock from the haycock launch

Had a few hours to play so I took myself to a new spot that I used to bank fish. Very small in size but the snake head bite can be fun. This one slimed my kayak good. This was the best Pic I could take. He flopped out before I could get my grippers in his jaw. Lost another when she spat my buzzbait. In total I went 1 for 3.

Theres very little that beats the pleasure  of swinging for the fences and the feeling of hooking up. Caught this and another on the spro spit shad. I'd rather catch bass but I'll take these any day.

didn't catch any bass but fished my lake water temps 60 yesterday, 60-65 this evening. saw many bass shallow. rock bass are spawning. Bass were in th process of mating so I didn't mess with em due to it being smallish lake that I care a whole lot about. caught one trout lost a whole lot more, was probably 16" or so, gave it to a family fishing from the dock along with some powerbait. going earliish tomorrow on a smallmouth lake.
