    We did some different stuff and fished some different areas on Sunday. The first and largest fish we saw was around noon as a low-40’s fish sluggishly followed Dave’s Rig Boss to the boat. 3 hours later, an upper-30’s fish decided to eat the bait and the musky slump was finally over. Gary had finally caught his first pure bred musky in the last spot we were going to fish!

    This week, we plan to fish muskies on Chautauqua and chase trout on the river followed by a full weekend of hunting bass/walleye.

    Stay tuned and Good Luck!

    We moved our Chautauqua trip to next week due to the rainy weather we had last Wednesday. Yesterday’s trip went pretty well as Lenny caught his first musky. He also had a much larger musky come in hot with his nose almost touching the bait but just wouldn’t eat. We had some pretty good trout action as well as Lenny landed a 23” brown with a couple more near-misses.

    Today and tomorrow we will chase as many bass/walleye as humanly possible. Dave and Ken are two of the best finesse bass fishermen I have ever fished with. Their skills will be tested during a pretty tough Fall river bite. Warmer than average river temps and much lower river levels will be a challenge. Looking forward to watching these guys work their magic under super sunny skies today.


    Stay tuned and good luck!

    Dave and Ken put 45-48 smallies in the bag yesterday with another 10-12 lost fish. We went hunting for big walleye for the first 1.5 hours and came up with nothing so we moved to bass around 10am and quit at 5. Largest measured bass was 21.5. No musky or pike sightings. We fished a variety of areas and used various artificial techniques until a pattern was established.

    Today’s plan will be pretty much the same but we might change the order of the spots we fished based on yesterday’s results.


    Good luck and stay tuned!

    After a hot morning start, things cooled quickly for us in the afternoon as we put 31 bass and 1 walleye in the net. The leaves became a problem south of Warren later in the day. We were just shy of the 20” mark.

    Water temps ranged between 50 and 55 depending on location. We plan to chase muskies at Chautauqua on Thursday and then 2 straight days chasing muskies for the weekend. Mild temps and southerly winds forecasted for the next week.


    Stay tuned and good luck!

    It sure did not seem like November musky fishing yesterday but it was still musky fishing, nonetheless. We had 2 of the largest fish I have seen all year come to the boat…..1 tried to eat and missed the bait while the other fish was looking at the bait (partially covered with weeds) but wouldn’t pull the trigger. Both fish showed themselves between 11 and 11:15 and that was all the action we had. Water temps were still in the low-50’s!

    Friday and Saturday will both be musky-hunt days on the river. Let’s hope the floating vegetation isn’t a problem.


    Good luck and stay tuned!

    Another fun and memorable day on the water yesterday as Scott landed his very first musky and Conner had 2 respectable fish come to the boat but evidently did not like the menu items. We battled some floating leaves as the wind forecast wasn’t even close. Water temps have actually risen over the past couple weeks and I was fishing in shorts by 11am.

    Today’s plan will likely be the same but will need to check the water conditions at daylight. The incoming rain will also be a factor.


    Good luck and stay tuned!

    Sunday was a tougher day for my boat as the net stayed dry and no musky sightings. We fished the exact same spots as Saturday but couldn’t get anything going. Water temps have actually risen by 6-7 degrees over the past 2 weeks. This has affected the northerly migration of all species, especially bass.

    It’s gonna be another 3-day weekend of musky fishing coming up as we celebrate Veteran’s Day. It will be my first Vets Day in 28 years without Charlie Brant. RIP brother.


    Good luck and stay tuned!

    Friday’s rain forecast was enough to cancel fishing but mostly due to the potential for floating vegetation washing into the river. Muddy tributary water is also a real concern too. I had forgotten we were going to watch my daughter play a couple basketball games on Friday nite and Saturday as well.

    We are still looking to fish on Sunday but will have to wait and see how bad the river looks Saturday evening. Big weather changes on the way!


    Good luck and stay tuned!

    After 3 inches of rain on Friday, we decided to cancel Sunday’s trip as well. The river will rise a couple more feet today and Tionesta Lake jumped 23 feet in 40 hours! The floating vegetation is terrible since this is the first high water we have had after the Fall leaf-drop.

    We plan to hit the water next weekend after things flush out.


    Good luck and stay tuned!

    With the drop in temps and increasing wind speeds coming for the weekend, we have decided not to fish. River levels have been high and will remain high for several more days. Wednesday and the rest of Thanksgiving vacation is looking promising weather-wise but river levels may still be too high.

    I hope to squeeze in a few more fishing trips before having my hip replaced on 11/29.


    Good luck and stay tuned!

    Wednesday’s musky adventure is happening and hopefully the rain forecast will allow us to fish Friday and Sunday as well. Saturday is looking pretty good too.


    Good luck and stay tuned!

    After a 9 day break due to high water and crappy weather, I was surprised at how much color there was in the river. We had a solid morning while netting 2 nice pike and losing a musky after rolling her on the surface. The river had a substantial outflow drop around lunchtime and so did our fishing action as we did not see another toothy the rest of the day. The super sunny weather didn’t help much either. River temps have really dropped the past week and are getting closer to the normal ranges for this time of year.

    We are keeping an eye on tomorrow’s weather but still plan to fish as of now.


    Good luck and stay tuned!

    A tough day of cold-front fishing for my boat. Not only did we not see a toothy but the wind and wind direction was a real pain in the arse. We covered tons of water using different techniques but just couldn’t get anything going.

    With tomorrow’s forecast looking bleak, there is a strong chance that today will be my last day on the water for 2022. My hip replacement is finally coming on Tuesday and excited to get things fixed.

    Today will be another musky hunt and it would be great to end the year with 1 more slimy net.


    Good luck and stay tuned!

    Saturday was another rough day for us. We didn’t see a toothy all day. We decided to cancel today’s outing mostly due to the rain (that is arriving soon) but also the lack of action over the past 2 days helped to make that decision.

    So, that is it for 2022. The boat began her winter hibernation yesterday while mine begins today.


    Good luck and Happy Holidays!
