    Count me in! Have several people here fishing for them. Some real diehards. Friends of mine have caught several. One was pushing the 50 inch mark. I haven't caught one yet this year.:crying:

    I was out Sat. as well in my boat on the Suskie N.B. I was hopeing for an Eye. but had no luck there so I switched over to Smallie's. I ended up with 10 Bass from 13 to 171/2" everything was cought on tube's. The river was riseing all day with a lot of trash flooting around. Today the river is 7' higher than it was on Sat. Now if only the wind would slow down we could do some Catfishing.

    Well the wind slowed down to about 10 -15 MPH, I got the tree off my house so I think I'll head to the Suskie for a few hour's. The river is about 7' higher than it was last week this time, and nice and brown.

    Most times I go between Allentown and Bethlehem>By the Hamilton Street Bridge is a good place.Down towards Easton can be good too.

    Raystown really nice man. I've been trying to get back out there. Fishing the cliffs last year for stripers, I didn't hook into any but my uncle caught a 30 pounder. They had us fishing with rainbow trout. Cool experience good luck out on the lake.
