Ice Fishing has really been the only thing happening the past couple weeks. Now the local ice got a little funky after the rains the other day but I think in the middle of the week it should be all good again. Penn Warner has been one hot spot for crappies, perch and pike with meal worms, minnows and small jigs. Some trout came from the off Woodbourne Road with a few perch, bluegills and crappies mixed in. The main lake just had some bluegills and perch hitting wax worms and meal worms. Noxamixion I think should still be safe with some guys doing very good with yellow perch, crappies and bluegills with meal worms, jigs and metal. South Jersey was great for pickerel, perch and crappies but this ice may take a bit longer to get safe. Now if you heading to the pocono's there is plenty of perch, crappies, bluegills and pickerel hitting minnows, shiners, meal worms, wax worms, small jigs, swedish pimples and Rapala ice jigs. Lake Hapatcong in New Jersey has been great for monster walleyes, pickerel and yellow perch with minnows, shiners and Rapala ice jigs.
Saltwater fishing since sea bass closed up has been slow. Some good catches of blackfish coming out of Breele and Barnegat off the head boats with these guys also catching some cod mixed in. Some of the best black fishing has been off the state of Delaware. Still plenty of stripers hitting off the coast of Virginia off plugs and bait. And out of Massachusetts guys have been doing well on big porgies, cod, ling and sea bass on the off shore trips.
I wish I had more to report but it is winter. Please make sure you look over your rods for any broken guides and tips and get them in now while we are slow to get them ready for spring. Well good luck and make sure you get your 2015 Fishing license before heading out.
9-20- Well ice fishing seems to be the thing right now. Heard from
a few guys fishing
core creek and we're doing good on crappies and bluegill with some bass and
perch mixed in . Heard there was some safe ice on the lake but now with the rain
that came in I don't know how safe it is. roman was up lake Hopatcong in nj
doing very well on big yellow perch . He said in the deeper parts of the lake
they are doing well on big walleye and also some musky. He said that cast
masters and rapala jigging raps were working best for big walleye and perch and
also a jig head tipped with a wax worm was also working very well. Majority of
our customers are heading to the mountains were the ice is definitely safe. If
you are looking for ice gear we have plenty in stock. Anything from jigs and
rapalas, to rods and augers. We have a good selection so stop on in and check it
Not much from the shore it seems pretty dead from what I heard. Of course they
are killing us with closing seabass. That does not help business one bit. A
customer has still been going down to the pennypack everyday averaging one to 4
trout a day. So if you are looking for some kind of fishing to pass this winter
blues you can head down there and try your luck .
Well hunting is coming to an end and it really stinks. Had a great duck season
with my new retriever and she did well. It stinks the dicks didn't show up until
the last week but what are you gonna do that's hunting. I was fortunate enough
to take 2 beautiful bucks this year. One in Ohio with the bow and one up state
PA. So I really can't complain about this season . Well I guess it's time to get
ready for turkey season that's all. And if anyone needs any rigs made or
anything done, now is the time while we have time. Come striper season we will
be busy with little time. Well that's all I have for this week . Tight lines.
9-16- Well fishing wise I haven't hear of a lot. They are still picking
up trout in
the pennypack. A good customer has been going out everyday picking up a few
trout with earth worms and powerbait. Heard of some safe ice up north towards
the Poconos. A lot of people doing good up there on all kinds of species. The
river has been slow as well. With a few catties being caught here and there on
the lower end of the river, and few walleye being caught up above along the wing
The shore has been quiet. With sea bass being closed we haven't had many
customers coming in from the shore area. Still a few schoolie bass being picked
up but nothing to really talk about. I guess what we are hoping for here at the
shop is for some good ice down here. Hopefully core creek freezes with some safe
ice over the next few nights, and that will generate a few customers for us.
For me it's been duck hunting and deer hunting. Last week we decided to do some
deer drives in the area with our bows. We had 9 guys planned for the drive and
only 4 showed up . Was hard pushing the deer in the direction we needed them to
got but we did manage to take one doe. I was complaining about that . Other wise
duck hunting was great the past few weeks. Besides the fact my boat wanted to
act up this past few weeks. Last two days I went out on the river I got stuck .
With a long paddle home. We need to work on the motor this winter and should be
ready to go by spring. That's all I really have for this week. Tight lines
1-3- Hello, my name is Mike K. a customer who reads your fishing reports
as soon as
they come out. I thought it might be time to try and contribute something to
your informative reports.
1/3/15, 7A.M. - 12 P.M., Flat Rock Dam (Roxborough/ Manayunk Canal side):
I started off this morning thinking of trying to catch some of these mythical
walleyes that I've heard rumors of near this spot so, with a full moon coming I
thought why not. I reached the spot after about a half mile hike and the sun was
just starting to break the night sky. The air was just below freezing and any
standing/still water around the dam was frozen on the surface. I forgot to bring
my waders and knee boots so I was stuck on the few points on shore below the
dam. I used everything but live bait because I forgot thAt as well. 3" grubs,
spinners, cranks, sticks, road runners, metal spoons, jigs, swim baits and got a
few taps but nothing else. I'll try the Art Museum tomorrow morning and see
Fisherman Magazine -CHRIS LIDO'S VIDEO UPDATE
It's icy and cold but a few boats got out for tog and cod. Ice fishing action in the northern part of the region started but if that is not your bag, don't miss live updates from our Zancudo Lodge Costa Rica fishing adventure at TheFisherman.com. The February issue with an interview with pending blackfish world record holder is right around the corner. All this and more right here!
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/
