    I have Sunday and Monday evenings off from work and I am looking for someone to go Flatheading with on the lower Allegheny River or Ohio River. I can't seem to find company for night fishing on those nights. I live near Pittsburgh but will fish any dams on PA's portion of the rivers. If anyone is in the same boat, contact me.

    Hi Scott! Where you been? I'll hook up with you some Sunday night. I work shifts so it all depends on my work schedule but I would be happy to do some Flatheadhead fishing with you on the lower Allegheny!

    Im usually at Penn Treaty or along the Schuykill on Kelly Drive for the most part. I used to fish behind the closed off pier on Delaware Ave good spot. But my car was broken into 2 years back so I stopped going there. I have heard good things about the airport from other fisherman but not quite sure how to get there kinda of have an idea maybe you can pm me with some info.:wink: Caught some channels yesterday some other fisherman was having a field day pulling them in but he was on the rocks I guess he was casting in the right spot.

    Its fairly easy to get to the airport spots. Depending on where you live from 95 take the cargo city exit to get to 291,go west for the bigger lake,or go east for the smaller one. Not too many big catfish,but there is nice size large mouth & carp. Plus if you want flathead bait there is tons of blugillls.:eek:oooh: I will hit you with a PM and we can hook up sometime.
