Got out again this week on Wednesday. Well this time I hooked up two rods and fished for about 2 hours before the rains came. Well I'm getting all my shut outs done early. In the 2 hours I did not have a single hit. I was hoping to get out on Thursday but Helen ended up in the hospital so that ended the fishing. And by the looks of it she will be in over the weekend and with trout season starting next weekend I won't see the river for a couple weeks. The good news is I did hear two reports of stripers being caught. One fish 28 inches and the other fish 16 inches. Both of these fish were caught with bloodworms and south of the airport. Here the temperature was 40 degrees. I did hear of one shad caught at the power plant with a shad dart. I'm not sure if it was a gizzard shad or a American. In the lower river I heard of 5 more catfish picked up with chunked eels, nightcrawlers and shrimp.
Penn Warner has been very good for white perch, crappies, bass and pike. Most of these fish are hitting live minnows, shiners, spinners, twister tails, spinner baits and metal jigging spoons. The Mentor season for trout opens Saturday and from what I heard they put some nice fish in Levittown Lake and Core Creek. The Neshaminy Creek at Hulmeville a few bass were picked up with nightcrawlers. Lower part of the Pennypack one fisherman caught a 5 pound carp with vanilla carp bait. A couple guys were at Struble lake catching some good yellow perch and crappies with tubes, twister tails and minnows. South Jersey lakes have been fair for pickerel, perch, crappies and bass. Steve at Union caught a good number of crappies with minnows, wax worms and jigs. He said most of the fish were 12 to 13 inches. Tom had his first trip on the upper Delaware on Monday catching 2 walleyes and a catfish with live minnows tipped on a fuzzy grub jig. One of these fish were 22 inches. The landscaper fished the shopping center lake with minnows, nightcrawlers and spinners. He caught 3 bluegills, 1 crappie and a largemouth bass.
I wish I had more to type but so far that is it. Lets hope for some warm weather to get everything started.
Well the weather is starting to slowly break for us,
with some warm days we have
been getting. Only problem it is not consistent. Haven't heard of any bass yet
in the river, but did have a few guys trying. They are catching catfish all up
and down the river while trying to catch stripers. Billy just returned from the
river with not a single bite. Water temp is still in the high thirties and low
40s in some spots. This is not good we need Mother Nature to cooperate with us.
I have heard of a few stripers being picked up by the art museum and also some
walleye and saugers being caught at night .
trout season is around the
corner and we are stocked up with plenty of bait and tackle. There is a mentored
youth day this Saturday and it is state wide. This means any stream in the state
that is stocked with trout you are able to take a kid 15 and under to fish
before opening day. Just stop in and get a mentored youth license and you will
be good to go. We do have different hours for the week of trout and they are
Monday and Tuesday 6am to 7pm Wednesday and Thursday 6am to 9pm, Friday 6am to
12 midnight, Saturday 5am to 6pm and Sunday 5am to 4pm. We're hoping for a nice
warm trout opener. So make sure you stop in to get all your gear and licenses.
Not much more to report this week still kind of slow until the stripers start
biting and trout season opens. Tight lines. Anthony

Slowly but surely, the winter flounder and striped bass action is beginning to spread out along the bays and rivers, with the first reported catches from along the Delaware coastline coming in with Augustine Beach producing fish. Meanwhile, a few short stripers have been caught along the Jersey back bay hotspots on the Mullica and Great Egg. First winter flounder reported too - outside of the warmwater outflows - with more traditional spots at Island Heights and Shark River beginning to produce. Cod, ling and pollock offshore at the Jersey wrecks, with Delaware Coast boats fishing for blackfish when weather allows.
Got my striper back from the taxidermist this past week and I have to say what a great job Mike of Coastal Fiberglass Fish Mounts did this fish. Anyone needs a great job done I highly recommend you to check them out. http://www.coastalthings.com/
