  • Dock fishing

    Went to a nearby lake over the Labor Day weekend to check it out for boat access and to fish. First time there. Hoping to take my Kingfisher there someday.

    Found the "resort" which has a nice restaurant with good food and nice folks. Spent several hours fishing from the covered dock and my wife and the boy caught some really nice sized bluegill! My wife also caught a nice catfish too.

    I hooked into a couple of bass but my skills have declined a lot due to lack of use and I couldn't get them landed. Had fun trying though!

    The boy and one of his big 'uns. I didn't get a pic of the largest one, but the one in this pic was about the 4th largest.

    The lake turned as smooth as glass.

    And of course, there was the obligatory uninvited and unwelcome guest!

    Nice! Sounds like a good day out! Who is that unwelcomed guest? Can't quite make it out in the picture. Snake? Turtle?

      Alligator! Small one, about a 5 footer.

      We were at another lake a year or so ago and saw a 12 footer. Now that was intimidating!

      Here's a zoomed and cropped image of the "little" one.

        Yikes! Gator! We don't have those in Pennsylvania. We like swimming in the lake. I don't think I would like swimming with gators!

          A guy I was dock fishing with in the Keys hooked into a small Gator, maybe 4', spooled him in about 20 seconds flat. My awareness level went up after seeing that.
          Experience is a lifetime of mistakes, wisdom is not making them again.

            Dock fishing could be an undertaking once it involves bass fishing. ... Fishing docks could be a successful maneuvered wrestling up these hide-and-go-seek large mouth bass that gives thrills for the eager angler
