Ill be fishing 12am opening day........off a sodbank. Second year in a row ditching opening day. Can have a mile off sod to myself, why stand elbow to elbow catchin trout?

I like Levittown though, never hit the trout up there but banged some smallies.

Where did ya get the smallies? I heard the Neshaminy creek is good..havent fished this area yet.
Bouncin crayfish imitations on the rip rap by the dam, might have been a fluke because it was the only time Ive ever fished there. Decent action, no monsters but decent average size.

Chester creek will be my destination, not sure where but quite a few spots within a few miles of my house. I'll deal with the crowd, first time for me...

Mayfair Diner @ 4am for breakfast, then head over to our spot in Pennypack. We usually start out around Verree Road and then head over towards Holme Ave. Its a ritual, once a year, every year.

hopefully i'll be striper fishing in the river that day. but i wil probably stop down welsh road for an hour or two. Do you think i could keep one or more alive in a 5 gallon bucket with an aerator or something like that for a couple hours? I would love to try to liveline trout for stripers. once my boat is in the water i have a large baitwell.
