1/14/17 Eaton has 10 inches of ice as reported by customers but the shore line is soft maybe hard by today. Steelhead fishing on the mile creeks, good flow and green colored water not dirty. Ice on your eyelets may be an issue. Not sure about Lake Plesant, so if your going there let me know so we can pass it along. The next 3 days including today. Let us see your East End Angler sticker on your vehicle or bucket and spend $10.00 will get a cupon for 2 free dozen lake erie emerald shiners. Does not include certified minnows. This will apply to the first customer in the door that mentions this and has the East End Angler sticker for the next 3 days.
1/13/17 Just took a look at the smaller mile creeks that are close to the store. Looks like they are starting to come down. Maybe some will be fishable later on today and will be good for fishing Saturday and Sunday. If your keeping your fish try to keep the males as the females don't have much meat this time of year. The males have a hook on the lower jaw. I hope everyone that called will stop in. We have good fresh bait and we just smoked a bunch of steelhead. Our most popular flavor is brown sugar burbon so we did a few extra. Howard Eaton might still be fishable with the cold temps last night but you may need a board to get on the ice. Last time anglers fished there we had awesome reports of big crappie and some big norther being caught. They stocked pickerel there and have not talked to anyone that caught any yet. Size limit on pickerel there is 18 inches and pike are 24 inches. Some huge walleye have been caught there as well. We got some Northland jigging spoons that work very good for walleye tipped with some minnows. I'll have a report later today on current ice conditions there and will update as I hear what they are.

Here are some pictures that have been on the camera for some time:
5-8-12 Got some great news to share today. Todd Young of Nazerth PA caught a new PA state record Lake Trout while fishing aboard Eyecon II fishing charter out of North East PA with Captain Scott Snyder. The fish was 39 inches long had a girth of 26 inches and the weight was 29.28 lbs. This was caught off the mountain. Hats off guys for a super great catch!
Wave report for the Lake; click on the link below:
Anglers are NOT permitted to utilize the foot bridge at the dam in order to cross the stream at 4 Mile creek. Anglers must enter the stream from the footpath located on the stream's east side near the Lawrence Park fishing club (between the yellow ropes).
Please remember that the conditions can change from minute to minute or hour to hour. If we post a report that someone caught fish at some point in time or place, that they may have swam away by the time you get there or the conditions have changed & is no longer fishable, which does happen quite often.
