Title: A Fool's Errand
Post by: bjones on October 16, 2018, 05:29:01 AM
Maybe I'm on a fool's errand, but I want to try fishing the river in West Pittston. I know it's high, muddy, and cold, but I want to try anyway.
What lures do you recommend?
Thanks in advance!

Rivers Dirty.
Loud Crankbaits.
Chart,and white Spinnerbaits with tandom Willowleaf  blades,it will Give off good vibration.
Chart.power bait grubs 4' with rattling jighead.
Just My OPINION

That's on my wish list too John. I am hoping the new power plant puts out just enough warm water to keep the big smallmouth a little warm and a lot happy.
