    I fished the Allegheny River Tuesday morning from 7:55AM till 10:45AM at Lock & Dam #6. Nice morning with temp. starting out at 46* and reaching 66* by the time I left. I caught 4 Walleyes - 15", 14", 14" & 13 1/2" on fatheads. Also 1 Carp - 28" on a fathead. That was a fun battle on an old Shakespeare Wonderod. I attached some photos.

    Nice fishing there. I've been fishing the lower allegheny and I can't wait to start to hook into those flatheads. Good luck and nothing beats time on the water.

    Your right Jack! I can't wait wait for the Flatheads to start bitin'! The water temp. is still only 46*. We got a bunch of rain the last two days so that should help warm things up.

    Catchaser,
    I was back at lock 6 on Easter Sunday from around 3:30PM till dark. Only caught 3 smallmouth and 2 carp. But since dink is busting on your vintage equipment, I thought I'd attach a picture of one of the Easter smallmouths with my vintage 1972 Mitchell 300 with gold stren that I bought from KMart my senior year of High school 1977:)

    I fished the Allegheny River at pool #6 this evening. I took a different approach this evening. I bought 2 doz. Rosie Red fatheads for bait. They are usually only available during the early part of Trout season. I figured I would try them on the river. I put out 1 pole with the fatheads and 1 pole with Danny King's punch bait that I just got from Catfish Connection. Well I didn't even get a bite on the pole with the D.K. I caught 3 Walleye/Sauger, 1 Smallmouth and 1 Whitebass on the fatheads. The interesting thing about me trying the orange fatheads was that I was only getting slow action while 2 guys fishing right below me were pounding fish on regular colored fatheads. I tried the experiment and must say that regular color fatheads were way better today anyway!
