NORTHEAST

Our friends in the northeast are typically fishing on hardwater this time of year and bowfishing hasn't really caught on in New England yet. However, there are giant common carp in states like New York and Vermont.

Look for our feature in next month's issue as we venture to Maine to fish for cusk (eelpout) at night on Schoodic Lake.

MID-ATLANTIC

The Cresson Community

Sportsmans Association of Cresson, PA is hosting a 3-day Fox and Coyote hunt on February 6-8. More information can be found by clicking on the logo below.
