    I fished the North branch of the Suskie last week, the river was 6' below flood useing cut bait(Perch) from an ice fishing trip the day before. I only managed two Channal's, one was about 25" the other was close to 30". I forgot my rule. The bite was slow just barely nugging the line. It must of taken 10 min. for them to run off with the bait. Yesterday I went too the same place after 5 hour's of nothing I called it quit's. There was one other guy there neer me useing Night walker's, he nothing as well.

    Kaleigh I had the samething up here on the Suskie 4 1/2 hour's on a bucket with out a bite. But it was a nice day, plus I never have to call in sick, I guess you might say I'm sick every day. I quit workin 12 year's ago. The bigest problom I have is have to decide where to go fishing today.

    Smallies,crappies,walleyes,carp,and stripers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Deleware river is hot hot hot!

    Lots of channels all winter,but getting tuned in to striper and walleye fishing right now.
    Most are being caught on 1/8 ounce jigs,with mr twister tipped with a 3 in minnow.
    Landin stripers on sinking lures,but seen a couple caught on big minnows.

    Headed out about 10:30,will bring camera in case the action picks up again this weekend.

    I've been fishing for trout before the season closes. I havent had a chance to go for cats. Im hoping next saturday to go to greenlane reservior for some crappie fishing. Usually there, where theres crappie the channel cats are close by. especially during the spawn. With weather & fiance permitting, I'll find out.

    Went fishing in the Del. River today,temps around freezing with wind chill in the single digits.Using chicken livers for bait had a hit after about 1/2 hr,it pulled real hard and while trying to land the fish I slipped on a big rock and went into the water. BOY WAS IT COLD,and broke my rod also. :mad: I wear a life jacket when fishing alone,did not need it today,just glad I had it.By the time I got to my car my pants felt like boards being so stiff.I was a long ride home.

    sorry to hear that! my grandfather a few years ago went into the river with heavy coats and boots and what not on and almost did not get back! been meaning to get out but my free days the weather sucks and the nice days im sitting inside stuck without anyway to get out! wrestling season takes most of the time but oh well. shad in a month and a few weeks, same with trout season, bass will start biting at the local pond in a week or 2, would love to get out on the big d for nice smallies and walleyes but im nervous to get out with the kyack and not to many areas for shore fishing where i fish, cant wait but its gonna be alittle while yet.

    tight lines, stay warm and out of the water.
