    what should I be fishing for this time of year on the Susquehanna river? Carp, channelcats, bass..? I wanna do some fishing to help stave off the cabin fever, but not sure whats biting this time of year? ... (it's january 31st)
    Also, I fish the West Branch of the Susquehanna, if that helps any with the species. (around the Williamsport-LockHaven area)

    but seriously catfish still eat but the bite might be slow. i would still pursue them no matter how cold

    Thanks! thats what I was lookin for! I have a GREAT crappie spot I'll have to check out! I actually caught a pike this season. It was only 18" but it sure put up a fight and scraped up my hand getting it off the hook! That was awesome anyway!
