Some say just a heavy mon some say tieable wire is a must. Anyone here fish for pike with ...

Re: Help Identify This

And these caddis and their cousins that will be coming off the rivers shortly, B. Numerosus , live for up to 4 weeks. So its good to carry #14-18 dark caddis dries through late May in NJ. Also, when the water temps reach the upper 50's low 60's the grannoms will come back to the water in the evenin...

Re: South Branch 4-27

Nice job. Whenever I would use a spinner I go with the Blue Fox Vibrax lures. I have always done well with the copper color ones.

Some Nice Rainbows

Found two nice deep pools on Sunday that were holding a bunch of nice rainbows. Fish were all holding tight to the bottom, if your lure or fly wasn't down deep they wouldn't even look at it. https://i.imgur.com/RKebgCm.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/j8Vd3QB.jpg https://i.imgur.com/PcwWlJh.jpg https://i.i...

Re: Bass Topwater

You'll want something bigger than a 4 or 5 weight for pike and bass. I would go with at least a 7 or 8 weight for those two species. And remember wire or heavy mono bite tippets for the pike. I love bass fishing both on top and subsurface with a fly rod. I have a 9' 8wt that I use for Steelhead & s...

Re: Bass Topwater

I grew up on a bass lake. I loved fishing off my parents' dock at night, listening to the "gurgle, gurgle, gurgle, gurgle" of a black, jointed Jitterbug making its way across the lake's surface. Right up until you hear the loud explosion of water as a bass pounds it, often missing it the first time...

Re: Bass Topwater

This long winter has me thinking of one thing; bass crushing topwater at night! One of my favorite ways to fish is for largemouth at night on topwater plugs! There is nothing better than the silence and darkness of night interrupted by the crashing sound of a big bass gulping down your lure at nigh...

Can't give you a species, but most likely some sort of stonefly.
That is what I was thinking but wasn't sure. Couldn't believe how many there were.
Thanks

Finally Nice Weather and Nice Trout

Went to try the Delaware river for shad on Sunday but didn't even get a strike. I decided to run over the Big Flat Brook and try for some trout. The weather was great and surprisingly the river wasn't too crowded. Ended up landing 6 rainbows with one real nice one that is my personal best for NJ. Al...
