Why I appreciate Erie

I go to Mercyhurst and have the pleasure of fishing the bay from when the ice melts (usually mid-April) until school is done which is only about a 5-6 week span. When I come home to Lancaster, PA I dont even catch 1/10 of the bass I catch up there. I really appreciate the time I get to fish there because I know over the summer I'm going to have to go long days with 1-2 bass instead of 20's consistently. You guys who live up there have an awesome place to fish. Wish I could be there all summer to rip 'em up.

    Most of us locals really do appreciate what we have. This really is one of my favorite places on earth. I haven't found a place that I can catch this many fish consistently. If ya get to Erie inbetween (or during) classes...hit me up.

    I don't always snag fish, but when I do...
    I choose Little Cleos

    I'm the best looking smartest snagging poacher alive...

    no doubt... I agree 100%
     
    i've travelled streams and lakes all over OH, PA and NY  and NOTHING can compare to Erie.. nothing...
     
    Bass
    Walleye
    Perch
    Northerns
    Musky
    Trout
    Steelies...
     
    list goes on and on.. and there are millions of em.. everywhere
     
    Just got back from a fishing trip downstate to fish some trout streams, pretty much a big waste fishing wise..
     
    nothing can compare to the Erie area waterways..

    it's like 5-10 degrees warmer here in the winter, and i only live about 150 miles southeast, plus the seemingly never ending snow = not for me.

    however i will drive up alot to fish, and yeah 4 wheel drive usually comes in handy.

    I'm jealous of anyone who lives in Erie. Isn't fishing mandatory for all residents there?

    If I could pick anywhere in the country to live, it would be close to the Great Lakes. Buffalo might be the best one. Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, and especially the Niagra River in the vicinity. St Lawrence and all the New York Lakes nearby too.....that would be Heaven on earth!

    Bowfin
    Crappie
    Mad Panfish....

    Don't forget the hunting (which by the way kicks arse), the scenery, the sunsets, the clubs, Waldameer, good cost of living, friendly people ('cept fer me). I've been to or through 48 states, this is truly one of my favorite places.

    I could fill this thread full of pages of reasons I love it here.

    For yinz that r hatin' on Erie weather....buy a coat and a shovel, you'll be fine.

    I did...busted my arse 4 it though. Ran circles around dUuDs, and it payed off in under 5 yrs. Now I fish/hunt/post when I want to, and still geet my paycheck. Life here is good. If I were any better....I'd be Guru.

    I appreciate Erie when it is really hot and humid and the beaches are loaded with babes... babes wearing outfits made from single strands of dental floss.

    I'll definitely take you up on that. I usually go alone and don't mind at all because I meet some really cool guys in the process but I'm sure I could learn a few things from you guys who fish it more often.

    I thought it was tortilla's?  Now i'm confused.
     
     
     
    Andrew, in all seriousness, James is a cool dude, no matter what crap is said or goes on in here.  He will take to you some great locations, offer his tackle if needed, and has some great stories/advice.  But if you can handle some criticism (mainly him finding a nickname for you), then you'll be fine.  Maybe I'll meet up with you guys too, but then it will be less like a father (SLick) son (andrew) adventure. 
     
    Harry....... when it's hot and humid here in Erie, the greatest place for you to go is Beach 1!!!! lol
