    My Fater Inlaw just got the boat ready and we are going hit the river for the first time this weekend. This our first time out on the boat. Just woundering what kind on stuff to bring along. Where is a good place to launch the boat and fish on the Susquehanna River near york or Harrisburg?

    I realy fish lakes a lot. I learned to make sure you have big sinkers though. Someone else should be able to help you out better than I can. Good luck and let us know how you did. I would like to head up there to but I dont know where to fish!

    Boat fishing is not that much different from bank fishing.................except that you have many more opportunities to find the holes and about half of the snags!

    The most important thing to bring with you is the required safety equipment. Don't want to get a ticket!

    Then bring the supplies that you would normally bring to a fishing trip.
