Apparently Night Fishing is a Dangerous Hobby

PA has some beautiful streams. That reminds me of Elk a bit though up in Erie. There was on particular bend in the creek that could be nearly identical.


I highly recommend the Outflow area, especially if you go over and fish right next to where the outflow water actually enters the river. If you're lucky you'll be there when they open it at night and get the benefit of the walleye / trout drawn in to feed on the stunned bait fish. That spot is highly prized, but many areas are good.

I lol'd at the wooly bugger. My father has tied so many of those damned things (and me maybe a small 10% of his efforts) for Steelhead its ridiculous.

Sky, I honestly thought of you when I read this, because I know we both like to fish. I also sent this to my father, as he's been doing a lot of travelling to fish lately before the Walleye season dies off.

One must wonder what would have been the result if the guy was carrying and emptied his magazine into the group. Part of me thinks after one or two of them dropped that the rest would run. These aren't hardened soldiers, they are punks/thugs looking to prey on easy targets. Sure, logic would dictate if there's 15-20 of them, they can't all be shot, but of that group, none are willing to risk being one to take a bullet.

Sadly, we'll never know, and even sadder, I'm sure the media would be all over it parroting him as being a profiler and not needing to defend himself with a gun, he should have just talked his way out of it. What pissed me off the most was on another site a poster stated there must be more to the story because he shouldn't have been out at 1 am. Goes to show how stupid liberals can be. The guy was night fishing at a dock/harbor with other people (that tried to help) and was killed be a roving mob.


Why I always have 2 extra clips with me. They might still get me but I am going to get off at least 30+ rounds into the mob. And like others have states more than likely when the first couple shots ring out they are going to scatter like roaches. No one wants to chance taking a bullet.


this is why my carry weapon has a capacity of 20. It is a little bulkier than a single stack, but getting it in a situation like this because I didnt have enough rounds would so severely cramp my afterlife.

I have often thought of stacking the first 5 as jacketed hollowpoints and then switching to penetrating rounds. if i go through 5, something is seriously fucking up my day, and maybe the extra penetration could hit 2 shitheads with 1 stone. Then I think about collateral damage and I would rather die than hurt an innocent person.

Now Erie, that's definitely combat fishing at the mouths of the creeks. I haven't seen any, but have heard of fights breaking out at the mouth of Walnut. Elk frustrates me to no end. I've been hit in the leg by running steelhead more times than I can count but have only ever gotten one on the hook.

We actually have only ever fished Elk Creek. I'll have to ask my father what the spot's called we fished - I always enjoy the names fisherman come up with. I do know the guy who lives across the creek owns a Doberman, so you don't stand on that side of the creek - I love Dobey's though, that's why I own one.

Yea Steelhead are very difficult to catch. I sadly foul snagged more than I caught (not intentional). We just practice catch and release though, and the fight is still good, its just not as rewarding.

I've heard at the waterfalls or something in Walnut is where there have been fights. Basically any of the hotspots where guys want their space to fish without being bothered - kind of like grizzlies during a salmon spawn, except we aren't as awesome with our tackle.
