City Island 7/15/19
« on: July 17, 2019, 05:51:24 PM »
Harry and me put in at City Island for the third time all year.  First two times the water was the color of black coffee and we were totally skunked the first trip.  The second trip we both caught one and those were the only two strikes all day.  This time the gauge was at 4.1 and it looked like coffee with cream.  You could see about 18 inches.  We fished from 8:00 to noon without a strike then we started getting hits but we couldn't hook them.  I finally caught the one in the pic but he wasn't hooked in the mouth then Harry caught two smaller ones in about 45 minutes.  They also were not hooked in the mouth.  We continued to get strikes but they weren't eating the bait.  We had a couple more on but they came off.  Summer's half gone and fishing sucks, at least at Harrisburg and I'm not reading any success stories on here.



The older I get, the better I used to be.

See my post in the general forum about catching largemouth. I didnt mention it but I have been catching smallies also but overall not with size.  One of two in the 18 to 19 range are about it.   Plenty of 12 fish.

Try to find current with grass and rock.
