Susquehanna River Smallmouth Bass / Re: Disappoinment

I have been told about stonecatties for years, and never fished them. Is it possible to buy them, in bait shops. The only ones I have ever witnessed, were the artificial ones dry has posted using. I really would like to try some, but have no idea where to look for them in the river or stream or what they look like. Now Brewguy texted me last night and said 1 of the tribs in our neck of the woods is still hot. Are any of you guys finding that to be the way up north also?

Tribs here are too low. Might find some holes floating the creek but I cannot wade it in summer.

We use to catch a few madtoms in tribs or shallow parts of the river with a seine net and 2 guys...one holding the net and the other kicking up rocks and gravel.

The artificial variety can be fished very successfully. You can find them by doing a search for "artificial stone catties".

I've heard that stone catties are really working up in Tunk and Falls.

I haven't been fishing as much as usual but the river seems totally different this year from the past few.  I've been skunked in the Harding area twice with my fly rod.  It's been years since that has happened in that stretch of river this time of year.  Been doing ok with catfish out of my kayak.

I went out for a few hours after work this week to some new water I have never fished before.  Fished below a riffle that dropped into a nice hole looked like text book smallie water and nothing.  Decided to take a walk above the riffle to a bit slower more even current about 3-4' deep and noticed some swirls in the current figured out they were taking some white flies off the top but just sucking them in not breaking water for them.  I had about 45 minutes of pretty good action on top with a white gurgler.  I caught 8 all around 12" but was grateful for the action anyway.  I wouldn't usually fish that water this time of year, hopefully things get back to normal.

Susquehanna River Smallmouth Bass / Re: Even a dumb squirrel !!

I'm beginning to think the "Fish Whisperer" is more trouble than he's worth, besides eating my lunch I now find out he needs a fishing license. At least that's what he told me when he wouldn't net a big walleye that I lost at the boat this morn. Caught another small walleye and lots of SM but none over 13".

It looks like the fish whisperer is now running on empty.  Nice bass.  Maybe the drought is ending.

This dumb squirrel took his secret weapon, the "Fish Whisperer" along and had the best summer day yet! ...

I don't think the PFBC allows "Voodoo" dolls on the river.  ;)  :)

Susquehanna River Smallmouth Bass / Looking for more acorns!!
« Last post by DRY on July 19, 2018, 03:07:47 PM »
AM temp on my back porch was 59F and low humidity... Great place to eat your eggs, sausage, Dandy-Blend and grapefruit.  After breakfast this dumb squirrel had to take advantage of the weather and head out to the "wasteland" again.
Surprised to find 4 trailers already there on a Thursday at 8 AM. I hope somebody's working to pay my Social Security.



Fished the Isle of Que today. The Que is loaded with many, many rock ledges running at an angle across the river that are now about 1-2 feet under the water. These ledges use to hold tons of smallmouth and rock bass. I floated the ledges using a small suspending rapala. No action on the rapala.




Below the ledges the water drops into 6-7 feet. The old timers (older than me) use to troll this water throughout the fall and winter for walleye. Neither the bass nor the walleye inhabit this "wasteland" like the "old days."

Over 3 hours I ended up  with 5 smallmouth with 16" being the best. This fish rocketed out of the water 6 times. What a sight!!



All the fish were caught along the shoreline on a laminated (bi-color) tube designed to represent a Susquehanna crawfish with a lighter tan underside and a greenish/brown top side. Have done well with this color over the years.

This dumb squirrel took his secret weapon, the "Fish Whisperer" along and had the best summer day yet! Lots of dinks, 4 over 17" and had to break out the net for one spawned out 19 incher. All on tubes.
