|Fourteen year old Cole Gorgacz and fourteen year old Logan Schuller both of New Castle, PA brought in their Angler Award fish. Cole’s was 7 pounds 12 ½ ounces, 28 ½ inches long with a girth of 15 ¾ inches.|
Logan’s was 8 pounds 2 ounces, 29 ¼ inches long with a girth of 16 inches. They both were out in 52 ft of water straight out of Walnut Creek. Both were caught on Green/Orange Renowski’s.
The Walleye are being caught left and right. They are out in deep water and close to shore. They are picking up little ones in the 12 – 15 inch range and putting them back and also getting the keepers the ones bigger than 15 inches. Most of them are getting caught straight out of Walnut on the south side of the first trench. I have had quite a few limits coming in.
Eight year old Mackendra Fedei of Fairview, PA brought in a 13 ounce Perch for Angler Award. It was 12 inches long and had a girth of 8 ½ inches. She was out in 52 ft of water off Walnut Creek on Emerald shiners.
|Mackendra’s cousin fourteen year old Courtney Fedei of Fairview, Pa brought in a 12 ounce Perch. It was 11 ¾ inches long and 8 ¼ inches in girth. She was out in the same 52 ft of water off Walnut Creek. She also was using Emerald shiners.|
The Perch are still out in the 50 ft of water range straight out of here and off Trout Run. I was told by most people to find the Perch pack and go either West or East about ½ mile or so. They seem to do better away from the pack.
