I recently made it down to the third annual Susquehanna Flats Jamboree.  Man what a great event.  This weekend is all about one thing which is raising money for the local Heroes on the Water Chapters.  There were well over 100 people who showed up to support this.

Kayak fishing the Susquehanna Flats

This is my first time fishing down at the flats and my fishing partner and myself scouted the area out and chose to fish Furnace Bay since it would be sheltered from the wind more than the flats, and we also had some good intel telling us there were bass in that area.  We fished Friday and Saturday in the bay but were unable to find any bass.  However I discovered I really didn't care much about the bass since I found lots of carp and started to hook into them.  I landed 3 total fish but had a lot of other hookups that I did not as well.

As much fun as I had fishing for these carp the best part about this trip though was the people.  I met some awesome people on this trip and spent time with old friends as well.  It was non stop laughter on and off the water.  Next time you see the Werner Paddles rep make sure you ask her about the pair of bald eagles she saw ;).  I'll be back next year for sure!  Enjoy the video and I'll throw some pictures in as well.

I've been fishing since I could walk.  When I was younger my grandfather would pick me up at my house weekly and take me to the local lake to bank fish with him.  I caught tons of fish from the bank this way but in 2007 realized I needed to get out ON the water and bought my first fishing kayak.  Since then you won't find me fishing any other way and I'm mostly on the Susquehanna or Juniata Rivers.  Besides kayak fishing I also am the chapter coordinator for the Central PA Chapter of Heroes on the Water.
