    This has been one of the slowest season for the cats. Went on about 5 trips only caught two between me and a buddy. Even dragged the nephew out to try his luck. I know this a cardinal sin to ask but can anyone recommend some spots to go in Philadelphia.

    Thanks for the replies. Im fishing from the deleware. I have tried all my standard baits. Shrimps, Nightcrawlers, cheese hot dogs, bread dipped in chicken liver blood even dug up earthworms.

    Where exactly on the Schuykill my friend. I have tried Kelly Drive w practically no luck. Actually I caught two catties tonight.:big_smile: Used corn dipped in Vanilla. First one was a decent size kinda of suprised me actually. Second one was maybe a 3 or 4lb. Some locations will be appreciated. :wink:

    Thanks buddy I did try that spot last week. Lot of hang up/snags there though. I m just aching to pull a flathead as I primarily fished of on the delaware. I did see someone pull up a 12lb or so flathead that though. Im trying just before you hit the art museum.
