Dead Body Reported in the River? Winter Catfish Fishing

Was trying to do some local Philadelphia Catfishing one day recently and stumbled into a “crime scene” where Police were investigating a dead body reported in the river. Turns out it was just a log, and I proceeded to catch some Catfish. Used cut sunfish for bait in the afternoon hours catching a few Channel Cats.

The cops blocking off the first parking lot I was going to park in were there for trump protests, had nothing to do with the reported body. The cops and fire trucks on the side of the road later were there for the body. And, the lady who cut me off, dont think too deep into it, the roads are full of clowns, this is not unusual or worth putting much thought into..

Also if you are wondering, I have seen one time a body retrieved from the river here, 2 years ago in march, only time I have actually witnessed it. There are a lot of bodies retrieved from the Schuylkill over the coarse of each year but seeing it is very rare.

River Jet Boat Bass Fishing

River bass fishing is one of my favorite ways to fish. Bass are usually shallow around cover and frog fishing and fishing a jig are primary techniques. In this winter fishing vlog, I’m joined by my friend Grant and our river largemouth bass fishing guide Carson. We are fishing the Colorado river located in central Texas. Carson’s jet engine bass boat is set up perfectly for fishing the shallow backwater areas that can’t be accessed by a traditional fiberglass bass boat. After a series of warm night, the water surface temps have arrived in the lower 60’s, making some of the bass start to move up into shallow backwater ponds to begin spawning. We are flipping jigs and casting chatterbaits and spinnerbaits around the banks and catching bass very shallow. Grant casts into an old pond an immediately gets a few bites. We cant access the pond by water, so Carson uses the aluminum jet boat to launch the boat into the other side of the pond. Once we get into the pond, you get some quality bites and end up catching a big bass on a topwater frog. It turn out it was the same largemouth bass that Grant had break his line just a few minutes earlier! We had to work for our bites which is typical for pre spawn bass fishing just before the start moving on beds, but we still caught some nice bass and saw some cool wildlife.

I fished this river is a kayak a few years back and it was work out!
