    I hope it is, since I need to do something other then shopping for Reels.

    Welcome to The BOC Aaron. I don't hear about much cat action coming from up there. I usually hear alot of smallmouth reports though. :cool2:

    You'll never know until you try! Pick a warm day and throw out a ton of different baits and see what happens. I hear that is a big place, so I would look for docks or some kind of structure to fish around if fishing from shore.

    Aaron - Welcome to the B.O.C.! :0a25: :0a23: Always nice to see a new Pa. member onboard! :big_smile: I can't help you any with Wallenpaupack as that is the whole way on the other side of the state from me. Are you talking about ice fishing or open water?

    Welcome to the BOC. I don't fish lakes much so I would suggest doing the basics. Livers, shiners, and cut fish. Good luck!

    Welcome to the boc!! I've boated on that lake and my cousin got married there but I havent had the pleasure of fishing it yet. I hear theres alot of good fish there. I have seen a large dead channel cat floating at the one boat dock, so theres something good swimming around in there.

    p.s. the restaurant on the water there has good food and a dock for the diners to stop at.

    So does anyone know where you can get a good used outboard motor?

    I have a 50 on my boat now, and would like to cranch it up a notch and havn't had much luck finding a used motor.

    Thanks everyone.

    I looked at Craigslist and it looks like in PA there are more posts then most other States.
