When selecting people for interviews, I sometimes just get a sense that this person is going to be a fantastic person to discuss fishing with. I got that feeling when looking at Bill Ryland’s Instagram @billymacmilly. As you will see from his answers and the fishing photos he shared with us, this young man is a very a talented angler …
Ryan Alunni is the owner and operator of Alunni Guide Service. He fishes the North Branch of the Susquehanna River. In this interview, he discusses his strategies for summer and fall smallmouth bass fishing on this section of the Susquehanna.
The Susquehanna River Fishing Club is a great organization bringing anglers together who love fishing this amazing fishery. We discussed the club with Don Goff and learned about why it is something you should definitely check out if you love fishing the Susquehanna.
Ever think about building your own custom river jet boat to chase shallow water river smallmouth bass? Rocky Droneburg has and is doing just that. This interview discusses his new boat and the building process and his fishing of the Potomac and Susquehanna Rivers.
Professional guides don’t have the option of sitting out a day on the water due to tough conditions. Also, days without fish in the boat are not good for business. So, I took the opportunity to ask Life Outdoors Unlimited Guide Scott Johnson about how he fishes through tough conditions. Scott guides on two amazing fisheries, Susquehanna River and Upper Potomac. Both are known for their clear shallow water and their amazing smallmouth bass fishing. In this interview, Scott teaches us how to get it done no matter what the conditions.
The Susquehanna River is my home body of water. I have fished the Susquehanna since I was 10, which means nearly 35 years of fishing the river. Every time I think I have the Suskie figured out, I meet an angler that helps me think of fishing the River in an all new way. Ryan Myers is one of these anglers that knows the Susquehanna inside and out and has a lot of cool ideas for catch the smallmouth that call it home. For example, I have never fished a blade bait on the river. Ryan does and has convinced me to pick up a few blade baits this off-season. So if you are an experienced River Rat on the Susquehanna or want to fish this smallmouth bass factory for the first time, Ryan’s interview provides a ton of great information.
If you have read other interviews, you know that I love people who show that they have fun fishing. Mitch Erickson is one of those anglers. You can just tell the fun he is having in every pic on Instagram. I reached out to Mitch to talk about the role fishing plays in his life. Looks like you have fun …
