Another weekend chased off the river (NE PA Kayak Fishing Report, 6/15/13)

By John “Toast” Oast

My bud Shawn Evans and I ended up hitting a local lake in Northeast Pennsylvania again this weekend.  A group from the Pennsylvania Kayak Fishing Association ( was planning an overnight float on the Susquehanna, but for the second time in the past month or so, we had to cancel due to high water.

The bite was a bit inconsistent, but being in kayaks, we were able to reach some shallow and weedy areas the power boats could not reach.  I was also testing out the new Predator 13 kayak from Old Town.  This boat is a stand-up fishing machine!  I ended the day with ten fish, and Shawn and I each had 18 inch largemouth boated.
