Tackle Talk for the week of October 28

Old Trail Tackle & Sports Tackle Talk

Walker Lake is producing some nice crappie for anglers using small marabou jigs of various colors and Northland 1/32nd Mimic Minnows. Largemouth bass fishing has also been good. Flukes, Senkos, 3.5 inch Old Trail Salted tubes in various colors and live medium shiners are producing some nice smallies. At Buffalo Lake the bluegill and perch are very active. Small rubber twisters and live medium shiners are the baits of choice. Trout fishing has been fair at Raymond B. Winter Lake. Berkley Powerbait paste in various colors has been a favorite as are waxworms and gold mealworms. On the Susquehanna River most areas are higher than normal and off color with water temperatures dropping every week. Anglers have been successful catching smallies below the PP&L dams south to Mckees Half Falls. Some of the better fishing for walleye and smallmouth bass has been late evening close to the shoreline and in deeper holes. Some walleye have been caught during daylight on Smithwick Rogues and Rapala X Raps with green and chartreuse colors. Several nice muskies were reported in the past week. They were caught on lures by anglers fishing for walleye. The catfish and flathead fishing has been good in the deeper holes where catfish have schooled. Large shiners have been the best bait for catfish.
