Title: Pack 5/20
Post by: pabassman on May 22, 2015, 08:58:07 AM
Planned on going Thursday night but life got in the way and made a last minute trip Wed night. Put in at the state launch about 9 pm. Saw 2 stripes hit while I was launching. 1 landed was about 12#, the other was lost but sounded pretty good when it splashed. I was disappointed because I couldn't find any bait up. Fished from 9:30 til 2 am. Got 4 bass and 2 smaller stripers .2 of the bass were nice. 1 about 3# another about 3.5#. Trailered up and took a nap in the truck til 5:15 and went back out. Got 9 bass and one more smaller striper. Fished til about 10 am. All night fish were on a husky jerk, day fish were on a spook, x ray and a tube.

went up last night and not much action. one smallie and a ton of rockies. them lil varmits were driving me crazy. i must have caught 30 of them. they were spitting up minnows they were so over indulged in them.chez if you like rockies on the grill you would have been in heaven.not much alewife action. some wild minnows and a couple of alewifes swimming around and the rockies were pounding them. only heard a couple of big slaps on the water and it went dead late night. how did everybody else do? and i wish people would take there garbage with them. there were keystone light cans on the shore and empty hook packs in the water thrown around . nice going to the slob who did that.

 Steelie1 and I fished last night too. Not great. 1 walleye, 3 stripers. We had some bait up but not a lot of chewing. Eyes were scarce. Talked to 2 boats in the lot. Both said no eyes. Stripes and some bass. Another friend said they got a couple eye but stayed late. He said it was the worst night of the week.

 This bite will stay for another moth but if will start to get more sporadic. As long as the bait is up fish will show up. I plan on being there every weekend chasing them until the bass tournaments start. Did you pull those alewives out of the fish or were they in the livewell? Check the well after you drain it. I missed one time last year. You cant imagine what two little 4" fish can smell like after a week in the sun LOL.

BASSMAN I DID THAT ONCE WITH A BASS THAT SWALLOWED THE HOOK. HAHA FORGOT ABOUT IT. THESE WERE IN HIS THROAT.

WHEN YOU USE SWIMBAITS ARE YOU JUST RIGGIN THEM ON A HOOK TO KEEP THEM SUSPENDED OR ON A JIGHEAD OR SWIMBAIT JIG TO FISH THEM ON THE BOTTOM?

Me and my pal dave went out last night fished from about 11-4,5 first time out and didn't catch anything but a minnow , seriously. But it was quite the learning experience for sure ended up at a spot I don't think we were suppose to be at , and interrupted someone I think was trying to rob  my truck on. The way back . We were walking to the truck all incognito with no light on or anything because we didn't want to be seen and when we saw  a body haul a$$ in the dark across a field and into the woods . But thank god when we got back to the truck everything was still there . The water was a bit choppy and think that may be why we didn't catch anything . Anyone else get out ?

That ticks me off too zip, it is what ruins it for everyone else. I think opening weekend of trout it one of the worst.  every stream I went to this year and crap laying all over the place. THey carried the crap in they can carry it the heck out. I spent more time picking up trash then I did fishing at some places. disgusting.

And as far as the rockies go, at least you had steady action  8)

Chez our wedding in Erie wasn't the greatest drinks wise either.  The vodka tonics were weak and the beers were half warm. I don't think that place realized what a hurting some people can put on the booze.  The bar tenders looked a little in shock with our group.  Either way it was good to see a bunch of friends that I haven't seen in forever.  That big water was just screaming my name, to bad we couldn't get time to get out, they are starting to get the walleyes and it will get better with each week.

As far as I know all the weddings are over for me for this summer. The only thing I have going on is a Vegas trip over the 4th of July.  Don't going to Daytona this year  :( but Vegas will be cool. Taking the wife out there to see Reba and Brooks and Dunn.  I have seen them before and Brooks and Dunn was the best concert I have ever been to and Reba puts on a hell of a show too.  Pretty soon it will be time to get ready for trapping season and fall Walleye and archery season.  Started running trail cams a few weeks ago.  If I remember I will post pics of the bob kitty I got.  He is monster!

Wallenpaupack Sports Shop, Route 6, Hawley (570-226-4797): Mark says striper and walleye action is hot at Lake Wallenpaupack. Stripers are active at nighttime along the shore, with one angler using live herring drifting to land 25- and 30-pounders. Walleye are also biting at night, hitting Rapplin' rogues and Bomber Long A lures. Smallmouth and largemouth bass are heading to the back end of coves to spawn, and one customer weighed in an 8-pound largemouth hooked on a Yamamoto worm. Calicoes are hitting fatheads at the back end of coves. Big perch are also starting to bite. Smallmouth are biting at Fairview Lake, hitting jigs and tubes off the bottom. Shohola and Greeley panfish are hitting red worms and fathead minnows. Fly fishing is the way to go for Lackawaxen River trout. The deeper river holes are ripe for walleye hitting worms.

Be careful with that wallenpaupack spot shop they can be tricky and deceiving . Count you bait , make sure it's lively, and watch there pricing on lures and stuff when there ringing up your bill. I HIGHLY SUGGEST you stay away from there they WILL screw you over if your not local or arnt paying attention
