    haycock run at lake nockamixon has been good to me. fishing by the marina from shore (hadnt tried the pier, to full) is futile due to the weeds. had to go 4 times before I shot the skunk. Im trying to get back down there but been to busy to go. Greenlane reservoir in east greenville is another good area for cats.

    All over the nock are incredible spots to catch catties from shore. In my experience the big boys usually come out after midnight. I am known to stay from sundown until 4 or 5 am. An all nighter on the nock is a fun way to unwind after a tough week, and the best way to start learning how they react to different conditions.

    Hey justme do you have a map of the nock. If so look at all the trails locatated off all entrances from 563, there are spots all along them all of them are good in different conditions, so I cant really point you to a " good spot" what works one night may be skunk city the next. Feel free to pm me with questions. Good luck and let me know how you do.

    For a close place to go,I like the canal on Sand Island in Bethlehem.We have caught some really big Snappers and Eels. My biggest Cat I got there was about 3 weeks ago and measured at 31". Catch and release most of the time,I rarely keep anything big.Makes great breeding stock!!!
