Had an excellent evening fishing for pike off of Long Pond, near the Coast Guard Station. Got this big right as the sun went down! Busy evening with a lot of largemouth bites to add! Got a bunch of bites on jerkbaits!

Well! Not the best opening day here in NWPA. Thunderstorms rolled in early Sunday morning and made conditions a little bit dangerous for serious open water fishing. Sheltered in the bay to wait for the worst to pass, only it never passed. Caught a few Larry's while sheltered but no eyes! Next time!

In case anyone is thinking about launching out of Walnut, the basin is currently being dredged and I will probably be another 2-3 weeks until completion.

Hammered bass in Misery Bay this weekend. Water is getting warmer and smallies are moving in. The fish activity was high so the Bay was pretty busy. Pike started biting jerk baits in the evening!

Well, being a glutton for punishment I went back to the bay for another attempt at perch fishing. Fished from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm and although marked some fish, caught none. So, took a slow boat ride through the channel and by the looks of the fisherman lining both the south and north pier fishing must be pretty good. Marked a lot of fish in the channel.

Water temperatures have been staying stubborn in the high 40s - low 50s, which has both largemouth and smallmouth bass aggressive and chasing moving baits. They haven't seemed to mind the recent rain and snow!

Fished the bay for perch from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Marked a lot of fish. Moved 5 times, while trying depths of 8' to 33'. Had only 4 bites, caught 1 fish....not a keeper. Needless to say a bad day on the bay.

Had an amazing day of fishing on Easter Sunday. Threw jerk baits all across PI and couldn't keep the BIG Larrys off the bait. Fishing on the lake is great right now! Smallmouth bass are staging! Get out there!

Smallmouth bass are becoming significantly more active as the water approaches that magic 50 degree mark. Jerkbaits, crankbaits, blade baits, and ned rigs are all great offerings this time of year.

I lost my car keys, I believe while fishing between Rick Road and the Sterrettania Road PFBC access. Subaru keys with a black tag and bright orange tape. If found, please call my home phone 814-374-4759. Thanks.

The cold wind couldn't keep us from getting on some fish this Sunday... Spending a little bit of extra time on the water REALLY paid off. We landed a few really nice smallies and finished the day with a NICE pike.
