Is this winter ever going to end. Again sorry I have not been posting as much as I should be enjoying a little time off and doing the doctor and hospital thing we have been quite busy. And when I have been at work I have been trying to get the place ready for the up coming season. And so far we are looking pretty good for when the first striper shows up. He probably will be wearing a over coat but we don't care just so they show up.
What fishing has been happening has all been ice fishing. Most al the lakes in the Philadelphia area have about 8 inches of ice. Most of the Jersey lakes have 5 to 7 inches. Now when you get north you can find 8 to 12 inches. Now we are looking at much warmer weather this coming week and weekend but I think most of these places will hold the ice for a bit. They will be quite wet so make sure you take good dry boots with you. Penn Warner have been one of the hot spots in this area. These club members have been just crushing the yellow perch with live minnows, Rapala ice jigs and wax worms. Here they have also caught a few crappies, pickerel and pike. But over all the perch have been so dominate the other fish don't stand a chance to get to the baits. Core Creek has been very good for white perch and bluegills but not much else. These fish have been hitting small ice jigs tipped with wax worms. Here again a few crappies have been caught close to the dam. Levittown Lake has been pretty good with trout, crappies and even a few bass. Here wax worms, minnows, meal worms and Rapala ice jigs have been working best. One fisherman picked up 3 nice rainbow trout one afternoon with 9 crappies and a bass. Another group has been going up just catching crappies with smaller minnows. One fisherman up at Noxamixion has been catching plenty of crappies, perch and bluegills fishing right close to the docks. He has been catching most of the fish with smaller minnows and wax worms. He did see one fisherman pick up a 22 inch pickerel with a Kastmasters spoon. One big group of fisherman have been doing great at Spruce Run Reservoir. These guys have been catching some nice northern pike with large minnows and shiners. One picture I saw was a fish in the mid 40 inch class I bet close to 30 pounds. They have been catching a few smaller pike mixed in with pickerel, crappies, yellow perch and plenty of bluegills. These smaller fish have been hitting smaller minnows, wax worms and meal worms. And staying local I have one fisherman hitting the Pennypack several times a week catching a trout here and there with earthworms. He said there are several suckers starting to show up but they are not hitting a thing.
Saltwater off Jersey has been dead for reports. I have not had one fisherman tell me anything in over a month now. But lots of guys heading north to up state New York and Massachuttes doing great with cod, ling, sea bass and pollock. These guys have been all fishing with top and bottom rigs with clams or strip mackerel. They have also picked up fish with 10 to 20 ounce diamond or Viking jigs.
I know this is short but it is all I have for you. With warmer weather in the forcast maybe some guys with start hitting the river for the first catfish. We won;t be getting bloodworms in till sometime in March. It all works on when we start getting calls for them. This is also a great time of year to start checking out your rods for broken guides and tips. We have plenty of time to do this work before the season gets too busy. Also new line is something to start thing about also checking out your lures for broken and rusted hooks. It gives you something to do while sitting in the house not able to fish.
Fisherman Magazine - It was an exceptional blackfish week with some cod and pollock spicing up catches. Ling made a showing, but it was tog that was on the take. Ice anglers rejoice its cold and safe ice is forming.
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/
