Getting to Know Instagram's a_n_fishing
We first discovered a_n_Fishing, also known as Anthony N. when we noticed big trout after big trout coming from Pennsylvania trout streams. Turns out this young man can catch some big largemouth bass as well. So, we were glad to get a chance to do this interview and get to know him a bit. Here is what we learned about this talented fisherman and his favorite trout and bass waters.
GFN: From your posts, I see that you are from Northwestern PA. What are your favorite waters to fish in your area?
I actually just moved to Erie PA. I grew up and learned to fish in Easton PA. In Erie, my favorite waters are the Lake Erie Coastline (usually near creek mouths) and Walnut Creek for Steelhead. Back in Easton my home water is Bushkill Creek and I also frequent the Musky River in NJ.
GFN: How is your fishing season going so far?
My trout season was killer I probably landed 30 fish over the 20'' mark. I only kept 3 trout all season. One was a contest winner, the other two were ones that I couldn't revive. Bass season has been good for me. It has been tougher since the move, trying to find the best waters in my new area.
GFN: You catch some big trout and you use various techniques. What is your favorite technique for catching big trout and why?
I always say if you’re just a fly guy or just a bait fisherman then you're missing out on a lot of fish. For trout I use everything from an ultralight spinning outfit to a centerpin. For bass I mostly use spinning gear but have tried baitcasters.
GFN: What is your favorite season to fish for trout?
Fall. Hands down. Monster Rainbow and Brown trout coming upstream to spawn. Spring is good too but catching a stocked trout just isn't as appealing as putting the time in to find the Steelheads.
GFN: You recently posted a beautiful Lake Erie largemouth. Usually when people think of Lake Erie, they are picturing big boats on big water. But you caught it out of a kayak. What area of the Lake are you fishing? And what advice do you have for kayak fishermen heading to Erie?
You don't need money to catch big fish. I cruise the shore line of lakes big and small looking for bass. Like I said before for Erie, I target the shoreline usually around creek mouths. The specific fish you are talking about was caught off Presque isle.
GFN: What kayak do you fish out of?
Nothing special. A $300 Angling kayak I bought at Dicks.
GFN: What do you like about kayak fishing?
You can go where the big boats either can't or wouldn't think to go.
GFN: I see that you fish with your Grandfather. What has he taught you about fishing?
He taught me everything I learned growing up and now I return the favor.
If you want to keep an eye on the fish a_n_fishing is landing, you need to check him out on Instagram. Also, keep an eye on us here at Go Fishing Now as we definitely want to keep in touch with Anthony and report how he does when he fishes his favorite waters this fall.
