I am not the best of fishermen, many more on the forums are a lot better thanme. Once the season starts we will hook up, try getting to Cabela's on Jan 13, a few of the local guys are meeting up there, check out the post here.


fishing user avatarZel... reply : 

Robby yeah I know the area near where Country Junction was, my nephew just bought a home there recently.  You must be really familiar with Beltzville Lake It's almost in your backyard.  Fish any open tournaments held there?

- - - -

Lakes I fish:

NE PA: Beltzville, Mauch Chunk, Nockamixon, Tobyhanna, Wallenpaupak, Fairview. Harveys.

NJ: Mountain Lake, Merrill Creek, Spruce Run, Round Valley, Hopatcong, Schwartzwood, Areoflex.


fishing user avatarRobbyZ5001 reply : 

Yeh I fished two open tournaments there. I fish the Big Fish tournament. It is Joe Chillari's tournaments. He is involved with team bass. I actually fished the one open that Marcia Rubin attended. I know the lake very well. I fish hard for stripers, catfish, and bass there. You fish fairview and harveys? I thought fairview was a private lake. Also did you know that Mike Iaconelli fished fairview for many years. He caught some big fish out of there (stories in his book).  Also I have been meaning to get to Harveys. How is the fishing at Fairview and Harveys?              


fishing user avatarZel... reply : 

Robby,

Harvey's Lake has been so-so for me for a while now. I only go there when a friend invites me when he prefishes it for a tourney, or at night when they occasionally had big name concerts there at the Bud Light Amphitheatre (no better seat in the house than in a bass boat fishing and watching/listening to Crosby, Stills & Nash; Deep Purple; or Black Sabbath). I have my best luck there fishing old abandoned docks where only remnants of structure remains, some specific docks, and slow rolling spinnerbaits in deep structure. Grade = C.

Fairview is a great small lake. Very small but unlimited HP. There is a state launch, but only enough parking for about 10 cars/trailers (and turning around there to get the tralier parked is nutz), and I don't think you can launch before 6 or 7 am. I stick to dropoffs, rocks, a big old tree in deep water, lily pads, and the hump area. Really quality Smallmouth and the largemouth aren't slouches either. One great place to practice your jigging spoons and blade baits. Grade = B+.


fishing user avatarRobbyZ5001 reply : 

It is funny you mention the Spoons and blade baits again. You either have a really good memory from when we talked on the phone or just random advice. The bud Light Amphitheatre sounds like a great time I am definitely going to look into that. Thanks!

Spruce and RVR are my home lakes. I just started fishing MC this year and same for Mountain. Out off all of them, MC or Mountain are my favorites.


fishing user avatarBig-Bass reply : 

I'm from Throop...actually pronounced "Troop."  I am 5-10 minutes from Archbald!


fishing user avatarMtAiryEd reply : 

You guys are makin' me homesick. I grew up in South Scranton...moved to Elmhurst later. I lived in both places for 30 years prior to moving to Maryland.  

I had a boat up at Lake Ontario and spent a lot of time up in the  Oswego,  Pulaski, Fairhaven area. While at home, I fished Prompton, Wallenpaupack, the Susky, Lake Henry, and most other lakes.


fishing user avatarBig-Bass reply : 

Some of the places I fish are: Prompton, Lake Ariel, Wallenpaupack, Lake Henry, Lackawanna State Park, Ford's Pond, Fairview Lake, Susquehanna River, etc. Where is South Scranton did you grow up? My father grew up on Hemlock Street and my uncle still lives on that street as well.

Peckville, Pa ... haven't fished in about 6 years, but I was a frequent "Pack" visitor. Plan on getting back into the groove again this year, at least I bought a license this year...

fishing user avatarDoNKeYMEAT reply : 

I live about 25ft south of Scranton... I fish most of the small lakes and state parks around here... I also fish "The Pack" a lot in the spring and fall, I don't get up there much in the summer... Also an avid river fisherman during those hot summer months...

Just found and joined this message board last week and I like it a lot so far... I belong to a bunch of other fishing boards and this is the first one where I found people close to me....
