    I mentioned this in another thread but, I thought I'd start one to see if any members or lurkers would be interested. Its been fun fishing the PA trail this year but we are in need of more participation. Its inexpensive to enter and the competition takes the fun to another level. Bank fishing is permited as long as you dont drive to you're spot from the launch. The fish must be released alive or they don't count. I hope to meet a few people from the BOC at this one.

    Date: Sat August 29 2009 7 pm to 7 am

    Susquehanna River, Peachbottom ramp

    Entry Fee $40 per Team

    Optional Bigfish Pot $10 per team

    I will consider the drive back to PA to pick up my boat and then the drive there if I can then follow you around for the night :wink:. I would love to enter. Im a little far away, and have never caught a susky flat yet, so I think I am out. Get a flathead tourney for the three rivers together and I will pick up a partner, and definetely be there (as long as its a weekend)! :big_smile::smile2:

    I would Joe but my mom is visiting that weekend. there is a tourney on the Delaware next month I am going to do. Entry for that one is $100 per boat and $10 for the lunker. 1st place $4500, 2nd place $2000, 3rd place $1000. That is based on a 100 boat feild. I think last year 1st got $5000. I still don't have anyone to fish with in that one yet. YOu are allowed 4 guys on the boat.

    You dont need an extravagent boat. There will be boats as small as 1648 there. You can buy a duck decoy bag to keep them alive. I think they will be selling them at the ramp before the tournament.

    I think there is a tourny next weekend on the Skuke. Top payout is $1000 from what I hear. Channels only for the money and the biggest Flathead wins a rod and reel.

    I busted my butt for bait in the rain today.Plenty of Greens, rockbass and longears!! Shane had to back out at the last minuite. I thought I'd be fishin this 1 alone. Luckily, I managed to find someone sick enough to fish an all nighter in the rain with me. Thanks ken:cool2:, Lets go get em The flattys are afraid ..they are very afraid.

    Thanks guys. It was deff. some tough water to fish. I never fished there before so that made it a little rough, but we had a game plan that sounded good and we stuck to it, but like Joe said the biggins were hard to find. The water was like 50'+ 2 feet from shore and there were spots that were well over 100'. O'well though, I still had fun. Thanks for invite Joe and Congrats on getting Angler of the Year for Pa. Go kick some butt in the championship Joe.
     
  18. Reps for giving it your best shot, and testing new waters bro.:roll_eyes:

    Thanks for the report and welcome home.:wink:

    Damn. I wish I would have known about this event sooner. I know the river very well from Holtwood to the Peach Bottom nuke plant. I could have let some of you out-of-towners know where the good structure, and the good cat holes are. All of them are accessible by boat only. I know of at least three right off the top of my head. Maybe I could be a guide next time? :smile2:
