    I am new to the area and new to this forum. I am looking for a good place to take my to catch some big cats from the shore. I live outside of Philadelphia area.

    I have tried the pier at Lake Noximixion and French Creek, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Give the Schuylkill River a shot.

    If you went to the dam you went up too far. Also on the other side of the river French creek dumps into it. Hope this helps.

    You can go anywhere on the Skuke. and catch Flatheads and channels. You just have to put time on the water and you will get a nice one. I started fishing for Flatheads about 2 years ago. Last year my only fish over #20 was #37. Then this year I started to hit other spots on the river that had structure and I have caught a bunch over #20 already. Just go out to good looking spots with plenty of bait and rigs and experament. Try different spots and keep tring and you will get a nice one.
