Re: Changes to NJ trout season about to be announced

Hopefully they make it official soon, I want to try the Passaic near me (if they stocked it already). The best way to get trout in the passaic is to cast a large copper spinnerbait, the next step is to take the pike you catch and have them barf up the trout :o :mrgreen: Jk lol, Ive never fished for...

Re: Is Facebook Killing Trout?

Interesting read but its the same one I have read dozens of times over from different authors and researchers. People have been taking pictures of their fish and boasting about it long before Facebook had an impact. Forums like this used to be flooded with topics and pictures during prime trout seas...

Twism86,

The way you are holding those trout brings back lots of memories. Your hands look so soft too.

When are we going fishing again? :roll: ;)

Re: Nature Open for Business - Wild Brookies

Tom, you need a 6' bamboo rod. Perfect for that kind of stream. I have one now! Or maybe its 6' 6''? Either way, I could use it there but I still would have to do a lot of bow and arrow casts as room for a back cast is limited. On such a tight stream I think the UL spin rod still lets me cast to a ...

Re: Nature Open for Business - Wild Brookies

Ive yet to find any fish of any size that a white 1/64th oz trout magnet wont catch :D damn i just have crap luck with them :mrgreen: I use these 1/32nd oz, sometimes 1/16th oz versions, of #8 jigs and tip it with a tiny worm plastic like a trout magnet. I love it for browns but never had a single ...

Re: Little wild browns

Thats the first "ghost" rubber net I have seen with the measurements built in! Custom made or commercial? Also, always like seeing a bamboo rod too!

Needless to say, its getting weird out there.... However, the fish are none the wiser and if you have the time, go fishing!! I took a drive yesterday and hit up a tiny wild brookie stream. Very tiny! Inches deep in most spots and a low gradient so the fish are spooky and mostly hidden in undercut b...

That little stream has had natural reproducing browns for way over 50 years, FYI.
This guy knows whats up.

NJ has only 30-ish officially designated Wild Trout Streams but nearly 200 Trout Production streams.

Re: Brett's thoghts from Rangeley Sport Shop

With everything closed around us and people keeping their distance, nature, remains open for business! So get out there and go for a walk, hike, fishing or anything else that gets you outside and into from fresh (pollen laden) air.
