Thought most of these were gone in the lake but it's all good. Only caught 1 out of the 15 fish that were landed. 9 largemouth, 2 rock bass, 3 big perch( 12 in each).

      porters cove has a lot of weed cover great for casting, Neely's point has some deeper water

      Awesome! Really appreciate the advice. Lake Arthur would be tough to cover in a kayak. Having a place to start is really helpful.

      porters cove and Neely's point are a couple of places to try at moraine

      Thanks Guy! I'll look into moraine.

      that's cool, moraine might be a place in the fall, they catch fish over 50+ every year, I've seen some good muskies at conneaut but it been a few years

      Thanks for the heads up. Might try elsewhere in the state for big one. Side note: current state record musky is held by my great uncle. Would love to keep the ...more record in the family.

      a guy I work with used to do a lot of muskie fishing up there, he said it has really gone down in the last 5 years

      Good to know there are some tigers in there. Hope all the big pure breads haven't been lost to the boat traffic and bowfin

      we fished up there until late Oct last year, only caught a 5# 32" northern, we've caught 2 small tigers this year

      Guy, surface temp was 79. All bass came out of weed beds to hit spinners and chatterbaits. Down imaging didn't pick anything up in the deep water, so I didn't ...more try jigging for them.
