Pennsylvania Fishing Dock Talk
I have a little bit of a bias in doing interviews for GoFishingNow.com. I love talking to my fellow PA anglers. The Keystone State has a lot of great fisheries and learning more about waters that I can easily get to is wonderful. I was really happy when PA's John Cook agreed to discuss his fishing. John is an accomplished fishermen with a lot of information to share.
GFN: You catch some very impressive Pennsylvania bass. What do you consider your favorite PA bass waters?
Thank you! I fish mostly in Northeast PA now. My favorites are probably too small to admit to...lol...but I do have a huge love/hate relationship with Lake Wallenpaupack. I have had some amazing days there; it has also humbled me faster than anywhere else. I love that it has about everything there, large and smallmouth bass, bluff banks, deep channels, big points, pads, docks, grass, wood, pretty much anything. If you want to learn, and don’t get discouraged easy, it’s a good lake to be around.
GFN: Which is your favorite to target, largemouth or smallmouth
I love them both of course. But when it comes to fun fishing smallmouth will always have my heart. They are gorgeous, fight hard, and help keep me learning. Just when I think I might be figuring this fishing thing out, they put me in my place and leave me scratching my head. Ask me if I like them after an unsuccessful morning and I will give you a different answer, but they are worth the hard work.
GFN: What are your favorite methods to target smallmouth bass?
It took me a long time, and I am still working on it, but love sight fishing for them when possible. Also fall is coming up, and when they are schooled up and feeding hard for winter, life long memories can be made in a short period of time. I also love fishing light line spinning gear, often a big part of clear water smallmouth fishing.
Eric is practically a neighbor. Actually he lives about 60 miles from me here in Pennsylvania, but we share a love of fishing the Susquehanna River for Smallmouth Bass. Judging by his photos, I think he is a bit more successful than I typically am, though.
My philosophy is when you find fishermen who catch more fish than you, learn from them. In this interview we do just that. We learn about his perspective on the condition of the River, some of his favorite lures and his new venture into tournament fishing.
GFN: Eric, you are from Selinsgrove Pennsylvania which puts you very near the Susquehanna River. How often do you get to fish the Susquehanna? And what do you like most about the fishery?
I fish the Susquehanna River about 4 or 5 times a week. This area is unique because of the Adam T. Bower Memorial Dam, which is actually the longest inflatable dam in the world. I like that the dam makes almost two completely different fisheries above the dam and below the dam. Above the dam is what is called Lake Augusta, where you can boat up the west branch or the north branch. Below the dam is more shallow and faster moving water.
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.
Being a Pennsylvania guy that lives near the Susquehanna River, I began following Robbie on Twitter due to the impressive Susky catches being Tweeted. Robbie agreed to share a bit more about his fishing. You can also check out his Twitter feed to keep up with his most recent catches.
I first discovered Hooked Fishing when I stumbled upon a YouTube video of Adam Jeannette landing a giant Pennsylvania muskie. I recently had the chance to interview Adam and learned about Hooked Fishing and the adventures of he and his fishing partner, Vinny Howells.
