Not deep at all. The tide was very low yesterday morning, and coming in. The perch were in no more then 2 1/2 to 3 FT. I had to set the tube bait about 18" under the bobber at times. I seen seagulls hanging around this one area, also seen a few, I call them rain drops, but it really is little fish like minnows on top of water. Sure enough, that was were the most perch were. Also caught too many little pickerel I didn't want to hook. Jerry, I bet they are hitting in the deep water on the Susquhanna River right now, and also in the marina near the B&O bridge fishing from the piers. What you think? Do they still have the bubbler system around the piers in the marina? I'm not use to catching these little fish any more, but it is all coming back to me. It is fun learning all over again with out a boat. Must be at least 30 years ago, maybe more when I keep my boat in Owen's Marina and fished the river, flats, and North East River.Nice fish. How deep were they?
Jerry, I cast one of the spinner baits you mailed me. The one with the pink head. I didn't get a chance to really fish it because of rain. I caught quite a few small pickerel with it. The large ones should show up soon, when it gets cold. Nice little spinners you make. Thanks!Yes Andy, that is usually the normal, or at least the most comfortable, attire when fishing the deeper waters up there. I wish it would stop raining too. It is really cutting into my fishing time too. Weather Underground shows measurable precipitation from now until Thursday, 31 Dec.
