GREAT KNIFE! Check out our KNIVES, SHARPENERS & GADGETS Section for a Great Deal on a Kershaw Model 1080 Skinning Knife. Our Technical Advisor field tested one of these during an actual deer hunt where there was a harvest, loved it, and now uses one on a regular basis. A nice, light and compact knife that will get the job done.
HISTORY BOOK FISHING PICTURES Here is another fishing picture out of the history books.
CLARKS CREEK FISHING REPORT
7/11/14: Recent action on Clarks Creek has been sporadic at best, and about the same for the Stony. Have tried early evening outings, but pop-up storms (borrowing latest weather term du jour), some with lightning, have had us running for cover. Hid out under the Stone Arch Bridge last night for 15 minutes, but was at least able to make a bunch of casts while the rain came down. Managed a small brookie on a Thomas Eel, plus a small brown on a piece of thick night crawler that I flicked around, weighted with a size B splitshot. There is still a good deal of road improvement being undertaken on Rt. 325, which may block parking near your favorite holes, so be mindful of that if you head out on a weekday. And there are plenty of deer moving these days, with the prudent approach being to drive a little slower in Middle Paxton Township if you want to avoid a collision. Speaking of deer, County Treasurers will begin accepting antlerless permit applications beginning 7/14.
Free Bait From Composting: Composting is a great way to not only produce excellent organic material for your gardens and flowerbeds, but any compost bed is a natural bait producer as well yielding worms and grubs upon turning over those rotting lawn clippings and kitchen scraps. You can easily make a compost enclosure or bed by pounding some fence posts or scrap lumber into the ground to comprise the corners and then walling that off by stapling on chicken wire or galvanized fencing material. Make a gate with some more scrap boards and a little more chicken wire, and you are good to go. A good “start-up” size can be 3 x 3 x 3, or in that neighborhood.
Garden State Largemouth: Nice bass caught by our Technical Advisor on 6/29/13 on a Kelly's Reveille Jr. plastic bait while fishing a Warren County farm pond.

PA POND CATFISH: Our Technical Advisor, Zombo, with a 29 inch channel cat that was caught using 4 LB test line and a shiner, while bank fishing a Harrisburg area orchard’s irrigation pond. Circa 1992. It took 2 hours to land the fish, carefully letting it run and walking and/or running it up and down the shoreline. After taking it home for a few photos, the fish was later returned to the pond in a cooler full of water and released.
