1. Finally had a good night with a bunch of 18-20” smallmouth bass and a dozen smaller ones. Couldn’t buy a hit on topwater! Perfect weather out 70 degrees dropping ...more into the 40’s and 50’s next few nights.

  2. Ok not a monster but my first Striper of the year. 90 degrees, sunny 3 PM, caught on a 2” jig. We caught largemouths, smallmouths, crappies, perch, bluegills, pickerel, ...more rock bass, and one striper this afternoon. Nice mixture- and yes the bass were bigger than the Striper.

      Keep Zmann in packs and take off hooks. Had a couple melt in fishing vest after using them.

      Yes a carp had big scales on other side. so hot out it cooked the fish and burnt all the meat off.

      Is that a Carp skeleton?

      Nice job Tim!! The constant heat is brutal.🎣👍
    5. Im not organized enough to use zman… if they touch anything they melt into goo and ruin everything it touches 🤣

  4. Didn’t catch any bass under 3 1/4 pounds today. (Oops, I meant 3 1/4 inches 😵‍💫). Real tough river kayak trip in 94 degrees and when I got to my spot it was Riverfront ...more Days. Parking lots were filled and 22 vehicles parked on river bank. Boats, kayaks, and bank fishermen everywhere. I didn’t last long and went for food.

  5. Read below Fish Camp instructor job is over. 92 degrees but campers crushed the fish. I divided up the lake so when each group fished they had new un fished water. Highlight: ...more a special need camper made it to fishing for his first time and had never fished before. With my help he caught 5 bluegills and then when I was working with other kids he caught 3 totally on his own!!! It was really a highlight of my fishing “career”.


    1. bet you snagged that log off the bottom
    2. Tim Crowley 0
      Exactly and you couldn’t catch it 😆
    3. i hate to be the one to burst your bubble, but that isn't a real fish, it's made of wood....
    4. Tim Crowley 0
      I fished with Chris P, couldn’t help him even when I hooked the fish and passed him the rod
    5. all kidding aside... Really Nice Work Tim👍🏻👍🏻
    6. Ohhhhhh Snap! 😂😂😂😂😂
    7. Nice work Tim... I am certain Chris P appreciated all your help.

  6. Two of us wade fishing Susquehanna River today got 112 smallmouth bass in about five hours. 90 degrees brutal sun and heat. Used a variety of topwater lures and ...more swimbaits. Biggest 30 or so were 15-16”. (Photo is from last nights trip, thought it was cool.)

  7. Kayak bass fishing nailed a nice bonus! Caught 32 bass, biggest one jumped off my measuring board waiting for flash in the dark. (Take that Chris P!)

  8. I could be catching monster fish, however, I’m teaching the next generation how to get them. Teaching 45 campers about fishing we caught around two dozen bluegills ...more and perch today. Big bass swam through bobbers but didn’t hit. I convinced camp to take them to a different lake next week where we can catch more fish .


    1. Keep up the good work
    2. Nice!
    3. amazing

  9. 7 bass first 10 minutes wade fishing waist deep. Ended with 55 bass but spent a lot of time experimenting with lures. Keitech out produced Berkley swimbait, NED ...more Rig, and NED swimbait. Was impressed with NED swimbait holds up well after a dozen fish. Half the time if a fish looks at a Keitech it falls apart, unfortunately they work great. Great day to fish.

      If Rapalas come close to a rock the bill falls off. I went through at least 6 packs Senkos this month, keep trying cheaper ones that last but don’t get the same ...more action or hits. 💰 💸
    3. yeah, just like rapalas and senkos... work great, zero durability haha

      Nice Tim, great day for sure!!

  10. Finished 18th out of the money in a kayak tournament on Susquehanna River. Lost some monsters. Son had two doubles, hook came off lure and he lost a 20” plus fish ...more that would have been big bass. Brand new Lucky Craft first two fish ever hooked on it. Used 3 different topwater lures to catch 40 bass.

    1. lucky craft would be getting a nasty email from me.... probably use cheapo crap hooks now to save money while charging the same price
    2. Tim Crowley 0
      I lose enough fish on my own we don’t need gear to cause it as well ☹️
    3. Nice 👍
    4. Chad Jaco 0
      That sucks losing a big fish because of that.
