      jon its not worth an argument. Sorry you feel as if I'm lying or telling fish stories. I joined this group because I believed it didn't have the bullshit ...more other sites have. I fish constantly own my own boat now I'm guilty of not putting all my catches up on here but you sir call me out.... look at your page, no spots, no catches, shit now even a profile picture. So sit there and tell me your not a troll. and by the way a guide took me out on the lake and help me catch this fish. hhe weighed it not me.

  5. Fished about 3/4 of the lake all different depths with downriggers. A whole day and evening plus a tank of fuel wasted on a DEAD SEA. Worst waterway I ever fished.

      main lake, dam, Island by the swimming section all the way into the no wake zone to the forks. We managed to catch a rope used for water skiing from the bottom and ...more brought it home to trash. Kinda disappointed, thought I'd atleast bring one fish on the boat.

Volunteer Firefighter/EMT, Fuel delivery driver. When I'm not working or saving lives I'm fishing or hunting. been fishing eastern PA waterways ...more since I was 12 years old, purchased my first boat with my twin brother at age 18. We've hauled our fair share of fish including Alantic Ocean Stripers and Fluke. Recently just got into downriggers on our newest boat "Fisher 1710". Looking to share my knowledge with other Fishermen and looking to listen to their's.
