1. Details: Channel cove

    A small cove in the NWRP lake facility. After rowing a canoe, we found a good place to get out an stretch our legs. it came with a nice lil bench to sit on and plenty ...more of visitors going to the hiking trails.

      I caught the smallest LM bass I've ever seen some really small bluegills and something big enough to break a 10lb test line. *its always the ones that got away...!
  2. Finally caught two fish that have eluded me. I was fishing from one of the "fishing stations" at Lake Lawson / Lake Smith natural area on Wed 09/30 before ...more the oncoming storm. Dropping an in line hook with a minnow on a jig dropper under a float, caught a nice crappie. Also with a hooked red worm on a hook and bobber, caught my first largemouth bass. It was really small (maybe 1 LB) so I released him, also caught what I would guess is a perch with minnows along with many bluegills on red worms. The storm started to roll in with thunder around noon, then just after I left a downpour. Quite to my dismay, there were a few moments of absolutely wonderful sunny skies. I had expected very cloudy all day with rain.

    2 lb. 10 in. Black Crappie with a Float, hook and jig with small minnow

  3. Details: Bluegill with a Red worm tipped green jig

    I caught a lot of bluegills. Not really mentionable, but I was trolling over a submerged brush pile when a blue gill hit the jig. All of them were pretty small.

      That water's so black you can't see some of them until you're right on top of it.

      Hey Chris, thanks for the question. I have been to Lake Cohoon a few times, Beaverdam once, and Lakes Lawson/Lake Smith in VB quite a few times. I cant seem to ...more buy a Bass or Crappie. The Bluegill and Catfish seem to like me though. lol! I do like Lake Cohoon a lot. There some parts that are downright serene. I forgot to mention about this past trip Monday, the water seemed pretty low. In some of the more secluded areas a lot of the submerged timber were showing above the surface and just barely below the surface. I can laugh now, but I was getting caught on some of those submerged stumps. Had to reverse the troller and us the paddle to push off.

      Have you fished Cohoon much this year? Besides some bluegill like you we haven't had much action.
