Re: Crappie Fishing?
Well it isn't east of the susky but Raystown has a decent population of Crappie . I spend the month of Oct. there every year fishing,hunting and camping.
Oct. is a good time for crappie , last year they were hanging out in the weed beds in about 11-12 ft of water. My prefered bait is fathead minnows. You will also pick up some very nice Yellow Perch while crappie fishing.
The lake is located in Huntingdon Co. and is 30 plus miles in length and unlimited horsepower.Its a very clear and deep lake, that also holds Stripers , Musky, Walleye , Bass large and smallmouth, and others, like catfish carp, etc.
I usually fish for striper from day break till about 9:30 Am then switch to crappie and perch tactics. Night fishing is also good for striper and crappie.
If you decide to try this lake I will be camped at the seven points recreation area in Point camp, not sure of the site yet. If you are interested PM me and I will give you contact Info. I would be glad to tell you every thing I know and how and where I fish. I expect to be the entire month of Oct. unless they change the camping rules.
