 Hello everyone, was wondering if you fellow lake linkers could help me out. I'm wondering if anyone has any good pointers for catching some sheep said on the rock. if you're willing to share specific locations that would be wonderful, and any other details would help. Thank you, p.m. Me if you'd prefer

Buddy been getting good sized crappie up the bark river. Jefferson dam has been producing little crappie no much to them and lots of dink cats and sheephead not much size to the cats very few eyes and a bunch of small white bass. We've gotten some nice whites and eyes about a mile up from mouth of river. Need some more cold nights and a few good rains to really get things going

Just got in a fresh batch of leeches, crawlers, and xl tuffy fatheads. I've been hearing a lot about guys catching eyes, crappies and whitebass at Indianford Dam, Blackhawk Island, Bark River Bridge and Jefferson dam. Crawlers and leeches are what's working the best for the eyes. Fatheads for everything else. Won't be long now and the Fall run will kick off in full force!

I was not successful using my "usual" way of fishing for catfish last night. Too many weeds and fast water with all the rain. So I put a Gulp alive watermelon pearl nightcrawler on a Trokar finesse hook with a thundermist three way--sinker about 2 feet down and a 2 and 1/2 foot leader on the worm. Threw this downstream from me about  4-5 feet from the wall And voila...a nice, healthy, fat cat. Worms seem to be working now as the watermelon pearl just shimmers in the night light.

The trolling bite is getting hot on newville side for eyes. #5 flickers various colors, salmo, and shad dancers. Eyes are hitting good in the river along Blackhawk island dragging crawlers or leeches. Whitebass are hitting there also

Just wondering if the river in Fort is fishable from shore still or do I need to rent scuba gear?

Fished a few spots in this area off the shore Wednesday afternoon. Along the shores I gathered up a paper grocery bag of fishing line lying on the shore and the edge of the river. Please pick up your old fishing line. All these spot have trash cans or dumpsters. If you bring it with you take it back. I also watched a group catching and keeping 3 and 4 inch white bass. Let them go so they can grow some more. :(
