This it Tackle for the week of February 12

Old Trail Tackle & Sports Tackle Talk

Fishing on the Susquehanna River continues to be unpredictable due to fluctuating water conditions.  Anglers are reporting some good fishing, mostly from the shoreline and in eddy areas.  It doesn’t seem to matter a whole lot what baits are being used; you have to find feeding fish.  Old Trail Salted Tubes in various colors and 5-inch rubber twist minnows in smoke and motor oil are working well for smallies, while live shiners and chartreuse twisters will take nice walleye.  Most baits at this time of year should be fished slowly and close to the bottom.  Catfishing has been fairly good, with nightcrawlers and large live shiners work well.  Anglers have reported some muskie action in and around the Shady Nook area and also Hoover’s Island.  Large muskie lures in the 7-inch range and Mepps musky marabou inline spinnerbaits in the most common colors fished slowly are working best.  Trout anglers are doing well on Penns Creek.  There has been enough rain recently to keep the trout streams at good levels.  Drifting nightcrawlers and slowly retrieving gold-bladed spinners in the deeper holes are a productive method in colder water.
