Dave @ Richter’s Tackle Shop; filed 11/3: “Not many anglers fishing the lake right now – between hunting season and steelhead season and the high winds of late. I’m even hunting rather than fishing. Those who have been getting out are getting walleyes on blade baits – the Vib-E seems to be favored. I’ve seen some pretty nice keepers from the regulars. I heard they were catching small crappie and bluegills off the docks at Jamestown Marina now that the docks are open for fishing.”

Hooker @ Hill’s Country Store; filed 11/1: “I had a customer catch a bucket of perch and shoot a deer at the same spot on Pymatuning. Other than that, I’ve been too busy archery hunting or

Patty @ Poff’s Tackle, Espyville; filed 10/20: “Given the windy and wet weather, this has not been a busy week. An-glers are catching a few walleye by the bridge on the cause-way around dusk. A lot of small perch are being caught. Some anglers are keeping them, but they are not the BIG perch we’ve seen here in the last few years. I think 2014 is one for the record books – but not in a good way. Fish catches have been up and down; not following the usual seasonal patterns for the most part. There may be a good bite for a very brief period; then it disappears.

Norm @ Jamestown Marina; filed 10/13: “The marina will be closing the end of the month and all boats must be out. Then I get to go walleye fishing!”
Marilyn Black (Cochranton); filed 10/13: “On Columbus Day, we headed to Pymatuning in the after-noon hoping to connect with some walleyes. South wind was stronger than the weather report called for. We fished Heddon Sonars and jigs on several points, channel drops and the big hump between Jamestown launch and the dam, netting us only a few small – very small – perch. Darl turned the boat north and slid into the mouth of a bay to get out of the building waves. Our first drift on the southern

point of the bay resulted in a nice crappie, but the following drift nothing. Darl ran the Gamma Side Vu up and down the point to discover a series of manmade fish structures (looked like cribs) extending from 14 feet to 18 feet on the inside of the point. No fish were observed, but when we started drifting the line of cribs, we began picking up decent black crappies and chunky bluegills. Daylight was waning and we decided not to wait to see if walleyes would come up to feed. Not the biggest catch of panfish of the fall, but enough to call the day a success.”
