    Now that trout season is closed until april, I have time to start thinking cats again (not that I stop but havent had time to do both). Has anyone been having any luck? even if its not a cat? I told my fiance that we were gonna go fishing saturday and we'd stop at cabelas in hamburg pa first for supplies, then after awhile I remembered, that was just the excuse to get my fiance to the cracker barrel for her bridal shower. Chances are high I wont be doing any fishing saturday. I just get to stare at them in the big tanks they have at cabelas while dreaming of a fish fry while the ladies get to do their thing across the street.

    Hi Scott, No luck here! The weather has really messed things up as far as getting out. Not enough ice to be ice fishing ( some guy went through the ice on Lake Arthur yesterday and drowned, ice was 2 inches thick). Too cold to hit the local river with skim ice floating everywhere. I just keep spending time reading about fishing and getting all my gear ready to go. I have a Trout stream going through my front yard. Fish comission will be stocking on March 11. That to me is always the 1st sign that spring is finally here!!!

    Not much going on here as well. We got about 6" of snow today and it's still comeing down, so with all the snow and only about 3 to4" of ice, fishin is pirty much shut down. The river has got flow ice everywhere so there's no fishing there eather. Life just suck's right now.

    delawareriver - I wish I could give the Shad fishing a try but it's just too far of a ride from here in the Pittsburgh area. If my darn lottery numbers would come through I would be able to fish anywhere, anytime but... guess I'll be heading to work tomorrow, LOL.

    Im going out today to give it a shot. Yasterday was beautiful, like 74 degrees out. Today is only supposed to be in the upper 50's, but I am curious, I seen 2 people out on boats fishing at the private lake I fish, but they were too far out to give em a shout to see how they were doing. Ill post my results and findings later on today or tommorro. Wish me luck.
