Don't do it BTDT! That is the Chinese governments long term plan for our extinction. Load us up with Gen. Tso's chicken and other msg, making it so appealing to take 3-4 trips to a buffet. They invade us and we all have a collective, Chinese junk food heart attack!

But fried fish and frenchfries are good for you... Ha, ha.

I’m not worried about any MSG being in the food. What concerns me is there any D-O-G?

Everything I say can be fully substantiated by my own opinion.

This thread and the revival of the OB Poo finger club, is starting to feel like old times.

If you are into cat, you should definitely think about munching on some beaver. Tastes like chicken, gets a little messy though. In a good way though.

Would have been nice to have a week or two in the 70s then 60s.  7:30 this morning, had a sting to it...  I hope lower than 46 for that sort of sting, or I am in trouble when it gets down in the teens!  Hopefully not until Jan/Feb for the teens though, and not too often.  I am not a fan of these polar vortex shifts.  Stay in Canada, and take Justin Bieber back with you!

Pork I couldn't agree more..... bout Bieber I mean.

Anyways, bout the mid teen temperature thingy. Maybe hit the middle teens for about 4 to 5 weeks say starting in Nov. then warming into the mid to upper 20s till spring? Did I mention no wind will be nice, just so's I don't have to worry bout chasing the stupid shanty, across the ice.

I'm looking mid 50s until Christmas Eve, then a nice snow fall, then back to the mid 50s the day after Christmas!  I like open water.  Below I80, never seem to get a good consistently long freeze.  Seems like more reports on this board of people falling in and drowning on Arthur, than any catches worth reporting.  I'd be into the ice stuff if it was like you noted.  But I am already busting at the seems in storage space.  Adding ice gear, just doesn't warrant the space needed.
 
I'll meet you half way.  Mid 50s, south of I80, and mid 20s, once you hit the border.  Heck, that border can be Slippery Rock if need be!  As long as Arthur stays warm and open!

Deal. 👍

But ya know, 50s be OK too mupere. now that places like Pymie leave the docks in year round. Wish Shenango would do the same, at least with maybe one dock.

But the temps must be warm enough to prevent trailering my boat, over sloppy salty roads.

Re: Arthur! 2018/10/12 13:20:00 (permalink)
Made it out recently. Did some trolling with the trusty fat free shad and some hot n' tots and it paid off with several nice catfish, a keeper walleye and some decent crappie. After the troll I tried for some perch, couldn't find em' only got some gills, but I'm betting the perch will be hitting real soon with this cold front coming through. Plenty of snakes in the shallows, seen 8-10 in the one area including this one. Any comments on what kind of snake this is? copperhead?

Just a good old Northern Water Snake.  Tons of 'em at Arthur, and they can be aggressive at times.  
 
In GENERAL, water snakes are darker on the dorsal side (back) with the lighter bands of the ventral (belly) side coming up the sides, while copperheads are darker on the ventral side with lighter colored bands or hourglass pattern on the dorsal side.  Water snakes are generally more dull in color as well.

thanks for the help identifying - definitely aggressive, I had a few fish on a stringer and it attacked one of the fish and began pulling the stringer into the water, I moved the fish to the cooler after that. lol

Some additional info on snakes.............
 
Most poisonous snakes have a pupil that resembles a cat's; an oblong shape with peaked ends, like a slit in the center of the eye. Non-venomous snakes usually have round pupils. There is always the exception. The coral snake, a very venomous snake in the United States, has round pupils.

Nice haul.  Almost has me thinking to head out tomorrow, to get skunked...
 
Snakes have been all over the place here.  Just little garter snakes.
 
Those water snakes look too similar to copperheads for me.

Once you see a REAL copperhead you'll never think a water snake is one again.  They are literally copper.  Like a shiny copper pipe.  Those snakes are out in force the same reason the fish are eating... gotta pack on some pounds before they winter.

I don't know if it ever got close to the 50 degrees we were supposed to have today, but it was much colder on Arthur. The wind was relentless! Still, there were at least a dozen boats out in our section, including one diehard sailboater, but we didn't see anybody catchin' anything. One 14" bass and it was the only hit in 4 hours. Times were tough!

 Son & I made it out 3 times last week. Didn't see another person any ov the times. We did ok on the Northerns & Crappie with some Perch & Gills mixed in. Took home 40 Crappie couple days ago for winter freezer stock.
 
 Up Linesville for the week but doubt if will make it out for the Perch.

Going to try trolling on Wednesday or Thursday. Hoping for one of those walleye the lake is "overrun" with. A pike would be nice too.

Just got back from the Outer Banks and a fantastic week of fishing. Kind of whet my appetite for something big!

Find anything big down south?  I follow reports down there.  Seems to be mixed results.  Weather obviously playing a factor.
 
Hit Arthur this weekend with a friend.  Windy as heck.  Hid away in a cove and got a few perch, crappie, gills and a nice largemouth.  The bite wasn't on fire by any means.  The chop on the water made it hard to detect the smaller bites.  We tried doing some wiper/eye fishing, but the wind was not conducive for slow trolling or even drifting.  That and just too cold in the wind to not catch anything...

Caught tons of sea mullet and snapper blues for the skillet. Highlight was a 30" black drum caught right in the wash on my bait rod. Released to fight another day. Tried to upload a pic but file was too big.

Nice report.  I love those sea mullet (black drum is good too, just remove all red meat, there is a good amount).  Fight a heck of a lot harder too, especially if caught on lighter rig meant for the mullets.  The ocean was angry when we went to Avon in July, so was shut out on both of them.  I was stuck fishing in the back.

Couldn't bring myself to kill the drum. Real bruiser all covered in battle scars. Wanted him to get back to thrashing all the young'uns.

Got the boat put away last Sunday.  Both batteries pulled and stored.  Could take the tub out, but we're in packing mode for a Florida trip.  Got a place on the water just south of Tampa bay, boat rented for 4 of the days and easy access to the Sunshine Skyway pier.  Hope to have some pics in a few weeks.  
 
Sounds like a good OBX trip Beagle.

The Perch are biting well, and the 'gills too, but I couldnt find the Crappie when I fished Monday. The lake was nearly deserted too!

That's so odd! Usually they're all over minnows this time of year, but the same thing happened to me. I got rare hits on fatheads but when I switched to plastics it was like night and day.
