Friday, May 31st

I didnít make it up to Pymy until 2pm....wife had to babysit. Fished till 6:30, got 6 walleye, 5 bass, 3 crappie, 12 channel cats. Biggest walleye was 24Ē, had a crappie at 15Ē. In the late afternoon, the lake really cleared out of fisherman. Deep frying walleye cheeks for lunch as Iím typing this.

dude, you have no idea how jealous I am...I line in the central part of the state...outside of the Susquehanna North branch, finding any walleye fishing requires a 2.5 hour drive.

My wife wants to retire in Florida.....I'd prefer where you are fishing......

Nice fish and thanks for sharing.

ďI prefer my kid hunt and fish rather than steal and deal,Ē

I drive up. Shoot across 422 and up 79. It takes an hour and twenty minutes from my place to the Alcatraz launch. Easy drive.

Before the crappie limits came on Pymy, my buddy and I have caught over a hundred crappie in a day, with crawlers. If Iím fishing shallow water, Iíll fish minnows for crappies, but thatís usually right after ice out in the northern bays. Thatís about the only time Iíll fish with fat heads.

Drifting with crawlers, you can catch walleye, perch, crappie, cats, bass....weíve even got a few muskies. Last season I bought 7 flats of crawlers. ( 42 dozen to a flat )

Water is very cold for this time of year....57 degrees at sun up. When it gets into the mid to high 60s, fishing will greatly improve. Iím wanting to fish 3 days next week.
Slip bobber fishing is just a blast. I really enjoy that. I only have a canoe so I gotta wait for nice days, but it can be a blast when u get into action.

Thanks , I have a place about 10 min from the espyville marina. When we go I use a crawler harness and drift , it has always worked well.

Thatís a fact. They run fat there too..lots of alewives. Youíll see huge bait balls on the Fishfinder, usually stripers hanging around them. Those stripers are like a Pa version of tarpon in the Bahamas.

Moraine never gives up a lot of eyes, a good day for me would be 3 or 4 fish. Usually get fish over 20 inches though.

But since itís only 15 miles away, it makes for a pleasant diversion on a summer day.
