Sean Beaver and dad, Susquehanna River 04_24_09

I'll keep it short... H2O was 53 degrees. Rose about 1.5 degrees throughout the day. Air temp was 40 degrees at 8:00 a.m. and 76 degrees at 2:30 p.m. !!!!

Winds blew steady (15-20 mph) from the NNW and changed to southerly winds by noon. That's when the air temp began to rise rather quickly.

Hit the same area as Josh and I fished on Tuesday, plus a few of Sean's favorite holes. We caught 16 bass with the largest going 19"/4lb.3oz. She came on a War Eagle 1/2 oz. spinnerbait. We missed quite a few bass with short strikes. We even shortened our plastic skirts and they would drop them.

Sean took a pic of the "Big One." Once I get them, I'll post a pic.

04_27_09 Here's the pic I promised!

We caught fish on... spinnerbaits, tubes, LD Slammer 3" worms, and JB's. I tired the WWD and the Winco Creature w/o a hit today. I thought the WWD would be successful because that's about the size that they seem to want. When crayfish are moving about, this lure has been a killer for me.

Please remain careful out there. Even as the air temp rises into the 80's over the next few days, the water temperature is still 40+ degrees cooler than our body temperature.

We saw Jst Fishin (Dave Shindler) with his clients. They were all enjoying the day on his beautiful new Snyder.

Just a perfect day to be on the water! I knew it was a good day 'cause I was definitely beat when I got home.
