We went fishin' at the Wyalusing boat launch on Friday in our canoe. We went to the left of the launch and fished the fallen trees and weededges. We got lots of bluegill; 3 hand sized. Also got some bass, but the biggest was only 11 in. Other than the fishing, we saw watersnakes, muskrats, otters and turtles.

Fished a backwater area just North of Potosi on Wednesday. The current was really ripping even in some backwater areas. We ended up having a pretty good day. Between my Dad and I we ended up getting 8 largemouth bass and 2 Northerns. The largemouths were all between 14"-16 3/4". One Northern was about 5lbs and the other had to go about 10lbs. The key was finding areas with no current and sparse grass. All the bass were fat females full of spawn. They were all caught on spinnerbaits and released. The bass bite is on! I am going to go down to Savanna on Sunday. I hear they are really catching the bass down there. Here is the picture of the larger Northern.

it's free for you Todd and the gar won't be biting in October. We caught 15 gar today in about 1.5 hours after we caught 15 bass earlier in the morning. The fish are biting well at the upper power plant right now.

Longnose, thanks for the info. Are you a fishing guide by chance? by your name it seems as though you may be a "gar" fisher"person". if you are a guide or do like to catch gar, i may be back the first weekend in october. How much for a person? do i have to bring my own drinks? how long do we fish? if you aren't any of the above just TACKLE ME! ($20) thanks for the help!

try the Grant or Platte Rivers for smallmouth right now. Take CTH B west until you get into the Platte River valley then take a left on Big Platt Rd. Fish any of the bridges, especially the last one before County O.
