    Are you referring to the Susquehanna flats?

    I am itching to get out but I usually fish the middle bay. Won’t be long now.

      Yep, susky flats, north east river, elk... I will be out on the flats this weekend dunking some bait. Maybe the big girls will show back up this year.

        I used to fish The Flats a lot. Not as much now that the striper population is in such bad shape.

        Yellow perch run is likely over but white perch should be showing up soon, if not already. Your kids would have a blast catching a bunch of them for a fish fry.

        Hope to get down there in the next few weeks.

                Those regs are killing me.

                People up and down the coast, and even bay, are allowed to keep trophy females... but we can’t catch and release on the flats.

                Where the studies from the last shutdown in the 90’s showed its 90% males on the flats pre spawn.

                Cold water C&R isn’t the cause, nor will it cause, the downfall of the fishery.

                I guess me and the boy will do a bunch of catfishing instead... if a striper bites... oh well.
