I am in Somerset, Pa for about 3 months. Looking for help on finding places to hunt and fish. I am willing to travel on weekends to fish. I would be interested in lake Erie, The atlantic.... anywhere I can get some fish! Any Info would be awesome!!

It's probably nothing like the fishing your used to back home but in about 2 weeks the crappie should start hitting at lake somerset. then walleye opens about may 10th? I live right in somerset and usually fish weekdays alone if your interested in fishing from a boat. I usually anchor for crappie and troll bottom bouncers for walleye.

If your into stream stocked trout laurel hill creek about 10/15 miles away is probably one of the best. Yough river is open year round at some places near confluence but it is normally bigger faster water than usual around here. I don't normally fish for trout so i can't help there.

We fish lake erie tribs a lot for steelhead but it is drawing to an end. May make one more trip up in about 2 weeks. I also occasionally go up to erie to fish on a head boat for perch but the last couple trips last year were slow. It usually picks up in june. They used to charge $28 per person for a trip out that lasted from 7 till 1 or 2 o'clock. If there are 3 or 4 guys to go and we split the gas it doesn't cost to much.

Hey Thanks for the reply! I was beginning to think no one from PA was on this site!!! I would love to go fishing anytime and am more than willing to pitch in for gas etc. Let me know if you are going out. I will be working most week days but have weekends and some days will have time after work to go out.

I can't get out tomorrow and i don't know what the weather change will do but today many 9 to 10 inch crappies were being caught at greenlick dam near mt pleasant. I kept about 35 but guys using minnies were catching them left and right. We were all out in boats and fishing in water about 6 to 9 feet deep.

It's to early to tell what i'll be doing next weekend but if your interested let me know and if a can get back there your welcome to go along.

My phone number is 445 5155. dave foy

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
