Bushkill fish kill...

Pretty sad and just so stupid. You don't have any sort of contingency plan for a power outage????

Re: 22" Largemouth

I use a 6 foot, medium action rod with only 6 lb test. I can get much more distance on my casts with the lighter line but the trade off is once fish go into the heavy stuff, that line wont hold up. Another solid one I caught on saturday was just shy of 22" Nice 17" smallie on sunday from a Pa reserv...

22" Largemouth

Caught this nice one over in Pa on my day off. Took a buzzbait tossed near a stump. I had no scale but at least 5lbs.

Re: Pa brown coughs up its last meal...

Funny thing is the stream is full of food. If you lift any rock, there are dozens of Epeorus mayflies, Stenoma maylfies and lots of caddis. I guess he wanted fish for dinner!

Re: My largest wild brown of the year...

I have seen some larger 14-18 inch trout in small streams with 'deep' pools of 3-4 feet deep, but they usually dont have bellies like that. Does that trout have access to a larger river that he fattens up in? Nope. The lower portion of the creek has an impassable dam. Most wild brown trout waters c...

Pa brown coughs up its last meal...

Hit a poconos stream earlier on Sunday. Nailed a few nice browns including the very brown brown below. While fighting it, it regurgitated its last meal - a 6" brown trout. So maybe add a 6" trout colored rapala to my repertoire?

Re: My largest wild brown of the year...

Thats a heck of a brown with a healthy looking belly, especially for what looks to be a really small stream. How deep is that pool? Looks to be lots of obstacles to climb over/get snagged on. Pool is about 4 feet deep. Its a small stream - maybe 4 miles or so long. And yes its quite the obstacle co...

My largest wild brown of the year...

I caught a beautiful 17" wild brown caught in a stream I had not fished since hs. It was a stocked stream when I was a kid with a few wild browns. Eventually more and more posted signs went up and stocking was eliminated. A few years back some land was acquired by the twp so I decided to finally giv...

Well done. Caught in NJ?
Yes and in one of our stocked waters which begs the question of why stock it if it can produce wild trout of this size?

Re: India Brook mischeif

This sort of chicanery goes on a lot of private property that the public doesn’t see. A few years back I was at a Hunterdon WTS when I decided to ignore the trespassing signs to explore a little further downstream. A few hundred feet away from the border of state property, I came across a dam, a str...

Re: India Brook mischeif

I was there about three weeks ago. I made sure I stayed on the twp property and gave the middle finger in his direction. He’s got a camera there so I just wanted to say hello.

I really hate people. They are among the dumbest of earths creatures. I'm soooo glad I have about 150 streams to fish and not see a damn person all day.

Re: State parks to open 5/2/20

NJ Angler will be happy though, the state parks are open and it might cull a few more of us that are diabetic, asthmatic, fat, out of shape, cancer survivor, or generally genetic weakling. The kind of people he said reap what they sow I do have sympathy for those who are vulnerable through no fault...

Re: Leaky Water Towers along a WTS

Looks like just rust to me. I often wondered every time I walked by them when not if they would remove them as they appear to be way beyond being useful. I'm also wondering if the impoundment a little further up will have its dam breached one day. Has some nice bass in there. Years ago they blocked ...

Re: Breached dam and wild brookies in peril in the Lamington/Black River Watershed?

They can co-exist but given the tiny nature of this stream, I doubt browns would completely take over so lets not exaggerate the impact of the browns just yet if the dam crumbles. Bear in mind nearly all the BIg Flat Brook tribs are trout production waters and about 99% of the wild trout are brookie...

12” wild bows are not common so I was excited to catch two solid fish.

Well this virus is killing quite a few, the Gov't is killing a lot too. I'm talking about killing our spirit. Our Souls. Our Faith. Our Freedoms. Our Rights. You kill those, life does not exist.
