Anybody fishing any of these lakes?  Any reports?  Looking to get out there soon.

    Still  the water is a lil' chilly yet , making bass slow but as soon as this weather breaks and water temps go 60's > fishing will heat up.  I have lake structure maps of redman & williams if anyone is intrested.

    Fished Redman yesterday from 2-6.  Only managed two 3# LM on jig in cover close to shore.  Marked most fish suspended around 18' of water, but they wouldn't hit anything I threw at them.  The only thing I didn't throw at them was live bait.

    That would be right! 15' - 18' till it warms up but don't let tomorrows 80's temp fool you. We need some warmer days in the 70's now after all this rain.

    When you mentioned Marburg I felt I needed to ask the obvious question. What is a good day at Marburg like? Fished it many times while living near Fairfield and had very few days that were good fishing. Before you say it must be the way I fish; let me say this. I started to fish Deep Creek lake in Md., after moving to S.W. Pa. and used the same methods; and was amazed at the numbers and size of the fish. Marburg was close and very accessible at the time; but as for fishing, my opinion would be to look somewhere else.

    Lake Marburg has always been feast or famine for me.  I usually either do very well or have a tough go at it.  You have to find the fish/baitfish at Marburg.

    Fished Marburg Friday about 3pm-7pm.  Was supposed to be 72 and partly cloudy.  Ended up very windy and nasty at times with periods of rain.  Water temp was 56-58.  A lot of the lake looked like chocolate milk.  Marburg Flats was extremely muddy.  Managed six largemouth.  Two biggest were 4.5# and 3.5#.

    Forgive me a shout from the land of snow, ice, and filtered light: Erie, Pa. I was born in York and fished Redman and Williams back in the early '70s up through the early 80's. Back then you could park along Hess farm Road and crawl down the rocks to fish Williams. The marina/boat rental place on Redman was the best spot to fish on a rainy day before they built that.  My parents live in York again and I have been taking my son there for the last 12 years when we come into town.

    Good to see it posted here.
