    Since the other Skuke reports thread is getting full, I figured that we should start a new thread for the Skuke before they shut the other one down again and it will make it a little easier to get some info on the fall bite. I fished with Jerry lastnight for a few hours at some new spots that looked prime. We each caught a few fish and Jerry lost a nice one on a SM Bass. I can say that the Flats want the slender baits more now that the water temps are dropping. Every Bass that got slung out got smashed or caught fish. I ended the night with 3 Flats and a fat Channel. Nothing over #15 and my biggest Flat was caught on a Sunny head. I wish the water would drop a little so I don't lose so many rigs. I must have lost atleast 10 rigs lastnight due to the current ripping them down stream into snags. I couldn't hold with 4 oz. weights so I threw on a 6 oz. and still couldn't hold. Then I was throwing my baits down along the bank (rip-rap) and I wasn't getting hung up as much but I wasn't getting the bites I was looking for. Maybe I will have better luck tommarow night.

    Fished for a few hours tonight with some people till about 12am then they left and Jerry and I decided to move. It was a good thing to cause Jerry ended up with one of his best nights of the year. He got a #30 and a #20 tonight. So good job to him, and he also came up to Abington to take me fishing tonight since my car was in the shop. So thanks again. At least now you have some pics of tonight :). Glad I could grab a few nice ones for you for a cnange :D ;).

    Hit the river last night with a load of nice bait.Big gills,greens,red eye,chubs & 2 8" bullhead.Guess what bait I had action on?The night started slow,acouple light runs & drops.Put on a bullhead' had a massive "smash & grab" run resulting in a 13-7# flat that fought like a 20#.Fished some other baits ,same light runs & drops.Put on my last bullhead,nice hard run,got hook.Felt 4 hard head shakes from a heavy fish then.........:sad2:My mono leader snapped about 4 inches from my hook.I was fishing in big rocks,so I should have been checking my line for abrasions every cast:embarassed:(I was taught better)Need to try to get more bullhead for tonight,since I'm not working tomorrow:smile2:

I love my BOC brothers out there that got my back like this :cool2:. Lastnight Jerry drove atleast 35 min out of his way lastnight both ways to get me and take me fishing, and tonight Mike is going to drive out opposite direction from the river to get me and take me fishing. I just want to say thanks to those guys again.:big_smile:

    Fishing was pretty crappy this past weekend. Fished friday, saturday, and sunday night and 5 fish landed total. All fish were under 8 lbs but Chris did manage a 29lber on friday night within the first 5 minutes of getting his line in.
