I went trout fishing years ago, went fish crazy, and bought all kinds of equipment...scouring Craigslist for rods/reels/lures, etc. It was bad...an addiction. I'm sure none of you can relate...lol. But life had other plans, and I've barely found the time (3-4 times /year) to fish since. I'm looking to increase that time on the water...and add to my minuscule "Fish" Folder on my FB Page...especially considering that I live minutes (7 min bike ride) from the Schuylkill.
I've almost always fished from the banks/shore and my boat experience is limited to a couple "Party" boats in Abescon. If there is anyone on here who is interested in fishing together, let me know. I welcome the opportunity to meet some like minded fishermen/women and share/build knowledge.
Thus Far, I've caught - Bass (Smallmouth, Largemouth, Rock, Sea, Striper), Catfish (Schuykill Dam) and most recently, a 24" Pickrel.
My largest was the 10lb Catfish at the dam. I can tie 1 fishing knot (Uni) and only use artificial bait on a spinning reel (Stradic C14+).
