Types of Fishing
When Pennsylvania fishing, you can catch plenty of the local fish, commonly using flies, shrimp, blue crabs, and of course who don’t want to use lures. Bass is one of the most popular fish in the nation to fish for, they can be caught year-round, but peak in spring and fall. Again, using worms, live-bait, and topwater lures.
Pennsylvania fishing charters offer a lot of water options. We commonly use trolling, bottom fishing, light or heavy tackle, jigging, and more.
When bottom fishing, we use heavy tackle for Walleye. These beauties live and love hanging around underwater structures. You can catch them mostly in deeper water, which in many cases is in state waters and have a very specific season to when they can be caught and harvested. You can catch them on cut fish as well, so most of the bait is cut fresh onboard the vessel. Leadgegs are one of the favorite places for Smallmouth, Walleye and Trout to hangout.
When fishing for Walleye, trolling is the most popular method. As they move around the water depths, you can find them at various latitudes, offshore and shoal waters alike. Feisty, Lake Trout, locally the favorite, flock around buoys and channels. We use lures and special Riggs, but we can also jig and see if Trout will chase it. Catch hard-fighting Smallmouth with a line testing 8+lb tackle. If you would prefer to try catching them on heavier tackle or fly, were happy to accommodate as well.
