  2. I had the afternoon off so I hit Edinboro- caught another on just like this one as well. Beautiful day for fishing!

  3. I got skunked but my 7 year old caught this literally 1 foot off of shore. He says β€œthere’s a bass” - drops a worm in front of it and the fish hit it immediately!

      I've had success around the boat docks late last summer. Never tried fishing from the beach.
    2. Ray Fisher 0
      Yes - I fish that spot quite a bit. I have had no luck on the beach side recently. Shore fishing now as my boat is not ready yet.
