Tim B,

Now that's what I am talking about! Nice fish. Here is one I took up on the Little Schuylkill just above Port Clinton. It took a size 4 Chartruese/White Clouser Minnow. It's no wonder they put up a good fight, just look at that rudder. I'm am with ya, embrace the chub!

Stenonema,

Your talking to a computer idiot here. But, your problem may be with the size of the photo you are trying to load. I use a photo manager program with my computer. You may need to edit your photo and choose a web compatible format to size the photo before trying to upload it to your post. I don't know if any of this makes sense to you, I'm sure someone else with more knowledge than me will chime in. I just want to see the picture of your big pathetic croaking chub! He He He !!!

Fallfish can be annoying during the rest of the season when I'm targeting bass, carp, trout ,ect. but during winter when nearly everything is gone, fallfish can be a great substitute until spring rolls around. Just how I think about it.

Embrace the Chub! (During winter) lol

Zack kewl vid. I am posting 2 fallfish caught about a mile upstream from your adventure. One was 18" and the other (2 pics) was 19" and had recently been chomped by a muskie (my guess). It stunk.

C'mon Night_Stalker you could have easily stretched that one to a 20 incher. I definitely would have believed it. Nice fish! I knew there would be some big ole Fallfish pix floating around out there. The cool part is there are probably guys out there right now trying to top yours. The toothy critter guys are probably trying to figure out what weight rod they need to throw their new 19" muskie fly. This has been a really cool thread.

I'll willingly target a lot of species, but honestly, fallfish ain't of 'em! They do put up a decent fight, but I can do without the snorting, sliminess, and other undesirable qualities they possess. I'll keep considering them an 'incidental' catch while targeting other species!

Those are some fat fallfish! I just got home from school and those pictures inspired me to go out and do a little fishing before it gets dark! Yes dc410, I am one of those guys out on the stream right now trying to top his! haha

wgmiller, I once caught a 2 foot brown that I thought for sure was a chub rising. Honestly, we little dimples along the bank under a branch. If I had been concerned about catching a fallfish I would have passed on that one. I would have bet alot of money on that day against that being a trout.

Fallfish are fun for newbies - they're easier for them to catch than trout.
But I've not real wild about catching them. They're so damn nervous while you're removing the hook. And that grunting. Yuck!

Well........... I am definitely not a newbie, but I think a good fallfish on the fly rod is a lot of fun. The snorting or crunking or croaking doesn't bother me. I don't care if they stink or if they are somewhat slimy. It doesn't even bother me when they totally soak me when I release one. To me it all part of the experience. I really enjoy catching many different species of fish on fly gear and I will throw the Fallfish into that group. I would be out there tomorrow trying to catch a 20 incher but I need to get some things done around the house before leaving for a bowhunting trip to West Virginia. After I return I plan on getting out there to smash some big fallfish but I will have the toothy critter gear along with me just in case the opportunity presents itself.

Ah, Why complain about fish slime on your hands, especially, when you are standing in water. How you get around getting soaked when you release them and the slime is................
You submerge the fish completely below the surface with your slimy hand prior to release. Then swoosh and repeat.

Zack and Night Stalker... Where you are fishing you have to be hooking other species as well, which should make for exciting fishing there. Unless you have targeting fallfish down on that crick.

In the creek where we were fishing there are smallmouths, muskie, catfish, suckers, carp, bluegill, fallfish, and supposedly some big wild trout from some of the spring creeks flowing into it (I have yet to catch one yet). A few years ago there was a small population of largemouths but something happened and I haven't seen one since! I actually caught a 18 inch largemouth on a fly during that time and it was the only one I got on a fly. During the warmer months I will target mainly carp, smallmouth and if I'm feeling desperate for fish, some bluegill. It's my home water and a great creek to fish on.
