Sorry about only posting Anthony's report last week but we had a web sight problem with it down for close to a week. Took me all last week to get the problem straighten out. And with winter here I will probably only be posting every other week unless something great is happening. We had a fair deer season with 2 bucks, 4 does and a 224 pound bear. I did get the first shot at the bear but the guy down hill & up my miss. Then the next week I was back out a couple times only to see one doe for a couple hours sitting out of range watching me. We start again after Christmas.
The upper river is up quite a bit but the walleye fisherman are loving it. They have been running from Bull's Island down to Lamberville catching 3 to 8 fish a day. Most of the fish have been 17 to 20 inches and are hitting minnows, jigs, bucktails and spoons the best. Tom got out one afternoon this past week catching 7 walleyes and a small smallmouth bass. He did his best with Fuzzy grubs tipped with smaller minnows. Stanley fished off the New Hope Wing dam catching 3 fish all keepers with nightcrawlers and live minnows. He said there was one boat fishing the fast water doing nothing. One other fisherman caught 2 walleyes fishing the wall out of Byran. He caught these fish with Kastmasters in gold color. He also had 5 smallmouth bass 12 to 14 inches. The lower river has been very slow with just a few catfish hitting shrimp, chunked eels or nightcrawlers. These guys are happy to catch one fish a day and most of the fish have been 1 to 3 pounds. One fisherman up in Tullytown cove looking for crappies or perch fished all day on Saturday with minnows, jigs and worms only to catch one sunfish. And several guys have been up to Trenton at the power plant looking for warm water. All these guys fished cold water and did nothing. They are not sure if the pump is up and running at this time. One fisherman over in Dredge said some nice bass are coming off the pipes with minnows, Senko worms and lizards. these fish are 12 to 14 inches.
Penn Warner has still been very good for perch, crappies, pickerel and pike. Chuck and Jay are still doing well with perch and pickerel fishing live minnows along the shore line. Buzzy is catching a bass here and there but said some good pike have been hitting bigger jerk baits, spinner baits and jigging metal. Kevin caught a good number of crappies off his dock with smaller minnows. One fisherman caught a few smaller walleyes at Fall's Township Park. He caught these fish with mid depth crankbaits in bright colors. Jim's last trip up landed him a few smaller bass with plastic worms but his last 4 to 6 trips caught him nothing. So he said his rods are hung up till next spring. Core Creek has been still slow but a few guys did catch a few trout in the upper end by Woodbourne Road. These fish were caught with power baits. Lower in the lake just a few perch hitting minnows, meal worms and twister tails. Levittown Lake also has been slow with a few trout hitting metal lures, smaller bass hitting minnows, spinners and spinner baits. Noxamixion has dropped off for bass but the perch and crappies are still hitting in good numbers and bigger fish. John fished his couple wood piles catching 10 to 15 fish a trip. Most of the fish have been 10 to 13 inches hitting tubes the best. The other John I think gave up with all the cold weather. One fisherman at Lake Galena had a couple great days with crappies hitting minnows and twister tails. He had over 35 fish one day and 25 fish the second. All the fish have been 12 to 13 inches. The landscaper caught a few crappies, perch and bluegills in the shopping center lake with minnows last week. Nothing big but enough action to keep him fishing. Ron has been crushing big yellow perch and crappies in Struble lake with minnows, shiners, twister tails, spinners and tubes. He is also catching some nice smallmouth bass and pickerel in Marsh Creek. These fish are hitting minnows, spinners, twister tails and spinner baits. His buddy's said the catfishing has really dropped off. They are only fishing 1 to 2 evenings a week catching 0 to 2 fish a evening. Best baits now have been chicken livers and nightcrawlers. One fisherman down in Tincum park caught a couple nice carp with corn and carp baits. This is down around the airport but I'm not sure where is legal to fish.
Saltwater fishing has been great the few days the winds are not blowing to allow fisherman to get off shore. The black fishing and sea bass fishing all up and down the coast has been very good. Alex has been limiting out with black fish 5 to 8 pounds. There was a 22 pound blackfish caught last week out of Long Island. Striper fishing has still been very good again all up and down the coast. I talked to several guys fishing out of Cape May doing better at the rips for quality of fish with some bigger fish being caught up the bay. These fish have been hitting bunker and eels the best. Fred out of Sea Isle caught limits of stripers the past 10 trips out. Most of these fish have been 30 to 35 inches hitting metal spoons, diamond jigs and fresh bunker. He has also been catching plenty of 3 to 5 pound sea bass 2 to 3 miles off the beach. Frank out of Breele caught his best fish last Thursday 47 inches 42 pounds with a 8 ounce gold diamond jig. He also caught another 15 fish that day all keeper size. A few blue have ben mixed in. And the further you go north the better the bigger sea bass, cod and monk fishing has been. These guys are doing best off New York up to Massachusetts.One fisherman out of Cape May headed south off shore of Delaware catching over 100 stripers. He said 40 percent were under sized but the rest were 28 to 32 inches. The captain caught over 75 the day before and only caught 20 the day after. Most of these fish were caught 3 miles out.
Union Lake for Steve and his son was great last Saturday for monster crappies. He caught over 40 fish and said most of the fish were 1/2 pounds up to 1 1/2 pounds. Minnows were the hot bait. Jerry said Malaga Lake has slowed up for bass but the pickerel and yellow perch have been really picking up. Fishing with minnows last week he caught over 35 fish in a afternoon. Richie is still catching some smaller pickerel off his dock in Lake Lenape with spinners and plastic worms. His buddy fishing in the Egg Harbor river said the big white perch and small stripers have been hitting squid, minnows, shiners, grubs and crankbaits. Mercer county park has been very good for pickerel. These guys fishing with minnows have been catching 5 to 12 fish each trip out. Salem canal for white perch, stripers and catfish with minnows, nightcrawlers, shrimp and squid strips. These guys have caught white perch up a pound. All the stripers have been 14 to 18 inches.
Well that is all I have for you this week. I hope everyone has a great Christmas and please don't forget up for the last minute gifts or Gift Certificates. It is going to be a long winter and we need to still play lots of bills. If you get out please let us know how you did and again have a great holiday.
11-28-Hi names Mike from fishtown went out of Cape May sat the 22nd on the CapeQueen trolled up to corsens inlet got 6 big guys with biggest bieng 50 inches Mike
11-5-With the good weather Tuesday and the water off Cape May finally down to 54 degrees I blew off work for the day and headed down to my boat in Wildwood. We left the dock at 7AM on Tuesday 11/4/14 an after fueling up we headed to the Cape May rips. They were very calm and no other boats fishing there. We cruised through and not marking a thing so thought since we were here we would drift some eels and bunker...no luck. We saw a few boats anchored up in the DE Bay and headed there but still no luck as waster was moving to fast. So we headed closer to shore a couple miles out from where the ferry docks and much more calm water and started getting bites....the wrong kind this time all sharks. Oh well we heard guys on the radio pick up a 38" and a 45" Striper so thought our spot was as good as any and the weather and calm water made it a great day even though we struck out. About 3pm we pulled anchor had headed for dinner by boat at the Lobster House in Cape May...delicious! Brian Brown
Fisherman Magazine -CHRIS LIDO'S VIDEO UPDATE
Cold weather descended on the region but fishing was still hot for tog and other bottom fish. In north Jersey two 12-pound tog from the same Belmar skipper highlighted the bite, while big bass are being trolled on MoJo rigs from south Jersey down to Delaware. Deep water wrecks are alive with big sea bass, ling, cod, pollock and porgies. Grab a big December issue for gift ideas for the angler in your life. All that and more right here!.
Short stripers to the north on small bait may bend rods but the bigger bass are moving south of Atlantic City and off Cape May and Delaware. Hot togging when boats are able to sail in wacky weather has really made the wait worthwhile. A 17 pounder was top fish this week. Deepwater wreck trips are still producing big catches of cod, sea bass and porgies, but spiny dogs invaded to ruin the party for some. Get the most updated report 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/
