1. I dunno about everyone else, but fishing has been kicking my butt lately. Since September 12th, I've been skunked 3 times, and only caught 8 fish total in that ...more time. Went to Cheat Lake WV today just to try a new lake, only to be there for 4.5hrs without a single bite.


    1. for the most part you are correct Drew 😅 but there's times where it is work to get a mess for dinner

  2. MAN it's been rough. 3 trips in the past 2 weeks to Lake Arthur, and not a single fish, finally got some on Sat afternoon though, after a bit of a grind. Maybe ...more fall is here? Here's the vid! https://youtu.be/P919Q5gtqIc

      I ran into a guy who said he pulled a 6lber out of Moraine. Would love to see a fish like that this weekend.

      Unfortunately, there isn't much vegetation left at Cross Creek to fish. Frank, remember that bay we fished across from the main launch? All that vegetation is ...more pretty much gone now. I think I'm going to Arthur on Sunday, this weekend, and staying away from Cross Creek.

      Nice way to end the streak!

      I haven’t been to Arthur in a couple of weeks, but from Mark’s posts this weekend, it looks like the fall bite has begun.
    5. Drew H 0
      Sounds like this weekend its gonna be PUNCHIN TIME.

      Guys, I believe they are in the shallows, under cover, feeding. I had zero success around lay downs Saturday. Not until I fished in and around heavy cover did ...more I find them. This was the same last year. They are getting ready for the winter and are looking for food. Try heavy grass and pads.
    7. Jim Holland 0
      Don't feel bad. Been wiffing, as well. Eked out a small Crappie at Cross Creek on Saturday, and that was it.

      Nice fish. Sounds like we had similar days, I caught two on the same day and had a pike (or something with shape teeth) bite me off in the grass.
  4. Hadn't been to Muddy Creek since May so, I decided to try it out, got 6!

    Very short video!

  6. What DIDN'T work today? Chatterbait, Swim Jig, Choppo, Wacky Rig, Texas Rig, and even an ol' Mepps Aglia Long! Got 11 this morning at Cross Creek, including ...more an unexpected Crappie! Unfortunately, forgot my GoPro back at the house, so no vid this time, which is too bad cuz it would've been entertaining!

      Another beautiful day to be on the water though! Frank has the magic senkos, I think.
    3. Jim Holland 0
      Awesome, Drew! Frank and I hit Cross Creek, today. He seriously spanked me in the numbers game! The fall transition is here!!

      Oooooh yes. Very excited for that!
    2. Jim Holland 0
      Yeah, it's that time of the year. Things get tough. But, we should be about into the transition from summer to fall, so the feed will be on!
    3. Drew H 0
      Same! I've had some luck at "dink lake" but Arthur has been really not stellar the past few.
    4. Jim Leise 0

      That end is to shallow in my opinion. I have unfinished business at McDaniels.
    6. Drew H 0
      Just try another end! I am prob heading back to shannon run next time I go to Arthur.
    7. Mark Merlin 0
      So, after catching one each of my last 3 times fishing there I told myself Saturday Im taking a breaking and going elsewhere Monday. After watching your video Im ...more starting to change my mind.
    8. Greg ODay 0
      Just watched the video a while ago and I am needing to get down there real soon.
