Every year,during the winter "I think", read or watch fishing shows. Then, I write down or pick through fishing techniques, lures, or spots that I want to try or experiment with. Then I try these ideas on the water.. I usually make a huge list and then only have the opportunity to attempt a few of them each year. Sometimes results are very successful, and sometimes not.. But being successful at some make it all worth it.. In my opinion learning a new technique is a huge part of the fun in fishing.
My mom has been in the hospital for awhile now and after visiting her Yesterday/Sunday 3/24/13 - I decided to take a short afternoon outing for a few hours on Lake Marburg/Codorus. I decided to try a new technique with the little time I had on the water.. What I learned in a few hours on the lake yesterday now makes "so much sense" to me, I can't believe that I didn’t think of this many years ago…
The fish in the pic went 6lbs 5oz...I didnt have a camera with me, because i didnt really plan on fishing this day.... then I realized that the "Pa bass season" is closed from "April 13th to June 15th.." --- This gave me the opportunity to put the fish in the livewell and take it to the local tackle shop B&B LURES IN HANOVER, and then later release the fish 50yards from where i caught it. Im going to put my scale in the boat for the next trip... just in case... .
This should be something to shoot for with the big Liberty strikers. look at this monstrous striper recently caught in Alabama. I can't find the article but I do remember the big Liberty 60+ pounder that an old couple found that DNR later said it just likely died of old age. Thought I saved a hard copy of the picture and article but can't seem to locate it.

With just over a week to the opening of Liberty and Prettyboy reservoirs, it made me think , what reservoir am I looking forward to fishing the most? I really can't wait to go back to Liberty. My how the times (fishing) have changed, I used to despise that that lake. Used to be lucky to catch 3 bass a day, now 30 bass a day seems to be the norm. Of course not all keepers but they are getting close. With the grass now in the lower end of the lake the bass seem to be relating to it better this past year. This also means Catch and Release needs to be practiced more now more than ever to ensure this upward trend continues. What lake are you looking forward to the most this year?
