Re: Crappies

Once you hook into one there are usually more! Big slabs, 12"+ will crush bass lures too!

Re: Raritan river- rough week ! 6/30/20:

Having lived in High Bridge for five years, I am surprised Lake Solitude would be an attractive destination. As I recall, it was shallow, muddy bottomed, and rather stagnant. Were people in the water or collecting in the pool below the dam? I have a comment, but I will bit my tongue. People hung ou...

I drove by Lake Solitude on Sunday the 19th, packed. Thankfully High Bridge PD were there to direct traffic and hopefully keep people semi-behaved.

Re: Catfishing from the Bank

I have cat fished for many years in Spruce Run reservoir. Worms work fine. Also go at night after a rain and fish the peninsula by Mueller Toyota. Cast, let it sink and wait. They will also eat spinners, rattletraps, pretty much anything but a stinky bait works best. be ready though as I have lande...

Re: Cut-off temp for summer trout?

Welcome to the forum. 68F is the most accepted temperature to stop fishing at because once the temps starting climbing and hit 68, 70 isnt far behind.

The weather for the next 10 days is not looking good for trout.

Catfishing from the Bank

I’m looking to get into some catfish. No preference but half decent channels of a few pounds would be nice. Looking to bottom fish somewhere near Somerset county. Any recommendations?

Im pretty sure I fished from Masemore rd upstream to Prettyboy Dam. Fished was better close to the dam, more rocky and KLG li...

How can the flow of the river be dependent on pumps from a concrete factory?? How is that allowed?

My club lodge is near tomennex. Fun place to fish. I stumbled on some shady dudes and their camp site there once. Calling Shannon's tomorrow to get my line sorted and hope for an evening next week.

Re: How Many Others

If Im wearing my vest I have almost all of my flies on me at all times. Sometimes I travel light with a waist pack or small backpack and only take a small selection with me. Worse than forgetting the fly you need is donating the only one you had to the tree gods right when it started working!!

I’m still confused by all the people I see in waders?
I dont wet wade anymore. Read a few people that contracted possible infections parasite from a possible open wound from wet wading
If you don’t have any open wounds then you are not at risk.

Sipping Rusty Spinners

Went for a walk through the KLG this evening with the wifey but I of course had bring a rod along. I grabbed my 6’6” boo and a small selection of flies and went out. No waders, just shorts, a backpack and some water shoes. Saw a riser near the trestle and went to work. I threw on a #14 rusty spinner...
