Got out yesterday...

Tried classic spots and got skunked. Finally went to the deepest open water on a current seam, slightly slack, but wind did move the boat around a bit. Fish were in 34-38 feet!! Hit like trains. Had double hookups on the drop, no sluggish bites whatsoever. 3/4 oz jigs tipped with a 4" curlytail and med shiner. Great day. Once again, only people on the water. I love early season

Saturday - mostly smaller eyes in 24' and deeper on current seams. 1 Muskie 27# in 17' on a large shiner lindy rigged. No pic as I was alone and focused on a safe release than a ****ty cell phone pic.

Sunday - Eyes and Cats in 24-36'. Jig n twister with live trailers. Bright sunshine, moderate winds made for outstanding bite alll day. A few decent fish up to 4#, but again mostly smaller fish.

Talked to PFBC today regarding boat launches. Allow me to paraphrase; PFBC launches are not being cleared yet becuse of potentially hazardous conditions on the river. Possible icebergs and debris washing downstream may make boating hazardous. After a thaw, the launches MAY be cleared. The staffing is low and with 17 counties to cover, they are stretched thin staffing-wise.

Appletree (Harding) - mud and Ice, caution tape

West Nanticoke (Garden Drive-In) - Mud and Ice
Union (Hunlock Creek) - Gate Locked until further notice, ice and mud

My ice season on the river is over as of last week on the NB.I ended up with a fat 29" walleye this year for the biggest,that I am going to put on the wall.Do you guys ice-fish down there or just boat?

Thinking about getting my boat out and trying it 1 of these days soon.Not really a cold water boater,I like my heated shanty on the ice!!!

Very limited ice fishing down this way, mostly smaller lakes and ponds. The Susky doesn't freeze completely over often.

Yea were getting dumped on with up to a foot of snow today.This is the biggest storm we had this year,actually this winter has been pretty easy on us.

So how are ya getting those cold water walleyes?Are you drifting and dragging your jigs behind the boat,or casting them/anchoring?

I use a plain 3" white jig up here (casting) in the spring summer and get lotsa numbers on it,I go bigger/darker colors when the water is colored though.

When jigging through the ice I tip the jig with a minnow head,never thought of doing that in summer,have to try that this year.I cant believe the depths you guys are fishing,usual fishing depth here is less than 6 foot!!!
