seems like everything has been a lot slower, even the walleye bite has been way off this whole spring

Went through Central Ferry around midnight and stopped and walked down to the water to take a look. There was a few fingerling smallmouths and I netted a 2 inch catfish that looks like a fatbellied Bullhead pkus another catfish baby that's black... What are they? I'll post a pic tomorrow.

Looking on google the tackle warehouse is closed in Starbuck? Any other tackle shops nearby or do I need to bring everything with me? Meaning like worms for bait for catfish bait

Pics didn't turn out in the dark for those fingerlings. It's a long ways from anything so bring everything you need. KOA doesn't have much besides overpriced snacks and drinks.

Yeah, imho, the KOA is basically useless.  Don't even carry simple boat gear such as fuel lines..  don't ask how I know..  there for a while they were out of stock of Mt. Dew and Pepsi.  Place has drastically went down hill since they became a KOA :twocents:

Great folks at the koa,the place is doing great compared to ten yrs ago. They aren't in the marine business,prices are steep but hey bring what you need,pretty much that way on most seasonal businesses. They've been good to a lot of folks on this site.
