PYMATUNING FISHING REPORT

does anyone have any current fishing reports for Pymy?  Lake Erie looks like a wash for this weekend so I thought I'd try Pymy.

Local weather report calling for rain and snow Sat. but, your in luck for Sun. if your a sailboater, Sunny with 14 mph wind gusting to 24.

Don't know if they pulled the docks.

Do they pull the docks at Pymy before ice?
Think I was up last December before ice cover and docks were still in at Jamestown?
Might have been Nov?
I'd like to make one more trip this year. If the wind would cooperate.

I know they pull the docks at Moraine right around now.  They were in last Tuesday.  
 
I rented a cabin at Pymie in November once as well, and had the docks out.  I would assume the other docks get pulled, at least on PA side.   
 
The Ohio side has a public access launch near the causeway (dam side of causeway about 2 miles), that is deeper, and I recall the dock being a good portion concrete.  We had to launch there a few years back when the lake was really low.  I would imagine that it would be a good place to launch after docks are pulled.  A pretty long run, if you are planning to fish near the dam though.

I just got back from fishing at the Jamestown marina.  Bluegills and small perch were hitting. Brought home 12 or so keeper Gills. They were taking boats out of the marina so they had to have a launch open somewheres close.  Tomorrow looks like the best day this week for trolling on Pymie.

Sparky said the ice is a little sketchy on the south end so be careful out there.

Fished pymatuning this past Sat. and Sun. started out at Fries road access had to drag gear all the way from the road because the plow left three feet of snow at the entrance. Ice is fine but covered with a foot of slop,fished the a.m. without so much as a bite. From there we went to a bit south of Manning and my buddy caught our first legal walleye of the ice season at about 12 feet deep. Sunday headed south and fished at 20 feet caught a lot of small perch then ended the day fishing around some docks and ended up with some nice bluegill things might may be starting to look up.

Fished the Jamestown launch area wednesday. Lots of small gills and some small crappies. 9 keeper gills out of over 40. Tungston jig and maki plastic took most. Got some on waxworms too. Good luck to everyone fishing the tourney there this weekend.

It wasn't caught out of pymy. Look at the pictures, there is no hill that tall anywhere around the lake. Guys been telling different places on where he caught it at. But I can 100% guarantee it was not caught in pymy.

The worst day hunting or fishing will always be better then the best day at school or work!

frost, I thought the same thing before I posted the link, but didn't want to mention it and stir the pot.
 
I'm total familiar with all of pymatuning and I totally agree with you that there's no hilly shorelines like that anywhere around that lake.  KDKA news reported that it was caught in NW PA.  Kinzu may be the location?  Don't know why they said Pymy?

Speaking of Pymy.........................  was there a tournament scheduled for this week-end?
Anybody waiting for a bite through the ice, care to comment?

My guess this was caught along  the Sandy Creek Trail above Kennerdell in the Allegheny.

Pretty sneaky of them to report that it was both Pymie and Arthur.  Good for them though.  I'm sure it was years of trial & error to figure things out.  He looks like one heck of a chef.  Might have to go check out his restaurant.  Hopefully not eating locally caught seafood though...

Mikastorm
My guess this was caught along  the Sandy Creek Trail above Kennerdell in the Allegheny.




From the pictures I saw, my first guess would be, your close Mikastorm.  The old R.R. bed and logging trails sure do look familiar.  Would have to say other pictures reveal shots of background upstream and there is no sign of power lines at Fisherman's Cove or the R.R Bridge at Belmar.  However, a known hot spot for fishing the Allegheny is the water intake at the power plant.  (oops, did I just 'spot-burn'.......?  My bad)

That looks like Moraine to me. On the tracks between Barber and Neely's. IMHO.

No doubt it's a good size Musky and a real prize ice fishing but it sounds like the stories are starting to get hyped up. Everyone is adding inches and pounds daily along with how old it was. Not saying these guys are the ones doing the hype but some people are juicing the story. Wonder what the girth was ? Length with girth will get you close to the the weight.

Very interesting, enough to get me looking close.  Although, I think those are RR tracks in the background.  The road and bike trail are a bit deeper (from back end to where the lake is) and that does appear to be a logging trail.  Also N Shore Dr. there is very level, like the photo, but the bike trail is not, and I think would show up in the photo.  You could be right, but doing a little searching, I think their hot spot is further north in the state, on water that would have a RR track next to.  On water that I would never ice fish on...
 
That said, I have no doubt there are musky that size, possibly hanging out where you mentioned in Arthur.

Speaking of big muskies, does anyone remember the 67 inch musky that washed up on the bank of the Mon river in Monongahela Pa. back in 1986?  It had a duck stuck in it's gill.
 
Talk to a guy a few days ago who said that he witnessed it along with the owner of a sporting goods store at the time.  Was it ever determined to be real or a bogy?

I'd have too see that fish with a tape measure next to it in a photo. Sounds far fetched.  Musky over 55" are about as rare as Bigfoot. http://www.fishingfury.co...st-muskie-ever-caught/  I doubt this fish's weight at 77lbs.  I guess over estimating size is fishermen's disease we all catch sooner or later ! This fish is huge and was 57" long !

Re: PYMATUNING FISHING REPORT 2015/02/19 18:38:57 (permalink)
Ridgehunter...real as it comes...my hometown....saw it first hand.  Mayor of Mon City back in the day saw it grab a duck a few weeks before it washed up.  The ducks head and bill went out through the gills on the right(passenger) side of the musky.  Let's go back a bit, this all happened near the Aquatorium, a concrete stage built out into the river in Monongahela.  It used to be used for small bands, graduations, etc.  At the time this happened, there were literally hundreds and hundreds of ducks people used to feed down on the river and this was the access point.  Bring easy prey, you will bring predators.  Back to the musky, several people actually saw splashing on the far side of the river, but thought it was ducks chasing each other around.  A few days later, someone cruising the river saw the fish dead.  I happened to be headed up the river to fish a creek mouth and saw them holding it.  I went over and got a good look.  Was it 67"?  I don't know, I never saw the tape go on it.  I know they took it to get it measured(it wasn't in too bad of shape.)  I know this, I personally caught muskies to 45"(which I had mounted and looked at every day...sorry C&R folks, I was young) and it isn't hard for me to believe this musky was half again as long.  The guy holding it was standing on a pontoon boat and had it hanging on a boat hook.  He had the chin up by his chin and the tail was just brushing the floor.  Unless he was a midget, it was **** big.  Seriously, I live in Crawford County now and have seen the state record hanging in Linesville many times and I can say without any reservation, the Mon River Monster, dwarfed it. 
 
Does anyone remember the one the was trapped in the net at the spillway?  If you are old like me, you remember there used to be nets hanging under the bridge at the spillway and, I believe, once a year they used to pull them up and remove truckload(s) of carp.  They caught it in there by accident.  I remember it was a female and they called her Pymatuning Belle.  I have a length measurement in my head, but I cant say where it came from so it has to stay there(I only deal in facts, that way I don't have to defend them.)
