Myself it was a work week even know I did cut out early on Thursday to sit a tree and watch squirrels all afternoon. Still nothing to shoot at but heading up state all next week for muzzle loader season so I hope to break the ice. This will also let you know there won't be a fishing report next week.
Not much to report for this week either. Lots of guys did head to the shore early this week fishing north for bigger blues off shore with tons of really little blues off the beaches. Derrick and his girlfriend were out crushing blues in the 10 pound range. From what I seen in the pictures there were jigging metal. Frank out of Breele caught over 20 blues 8 to 12 pounds and even had one 29 inch striper mixed in. He caught most of the fish with Krock spoons but did have the striper with a chunk of bunker. Carl also fishing off the Golden Eagle said the blue fishing this past week was fantastic. Himself he caught fish up to 14 pounds most with A 67 jigs with green tails. Now off the beach most guys have been throwing smaller metal spoons catching fish 10 to 15 inches. Russ told me on Friday last week each fish he caught got smaller and smaller all day long. But he did catch plenty of fish. John up off the Hook did catch a few fish in the 3 to 5 pound range but had to weed through the smaller fish to catch them. But up here there are still some good fluke being caught off the beach with bucktails. Some of these fish have been 3 to 5 pounds. Now for stripers most of the fishing has been off shore. I know it is not legal to target or keep these fish but I'm only typing what I'm hearing. 3 to 5 miles out there were some good catches of 15 to 20 pound bass with diamond jigs and Krock spoons. These fish were held up in 30 to 40 feet of water. There are still some guys doing very good for tuna but I'm not getting any personal reports. Sea bass does open this weekend and I know there were be plenty of interest in these fish. Fred out of Sea Isle said the sea bass fishing has been great even know you can't keep any. He has been catching 20 to 30 2 to 4 pound fish 5 miles off shore. He has also been catching some decent 5 to 8 pound blackfish on the same wreaks. Down south fishing has been very slow. A few croakers and a kingfish here and there but other than that nothing. The Delaware Bay I had several guys out fishing bunker looking for stripers only catching a few sharks and short bass. Up at Fortescue a few smaller weakfish, bluefish being caught with the crabbing still decent.
The upper Delaware River was very good early in the week. Plenty of smallmouth bass with a walleye here and there being caught with minnows, grubs, tubes and spinners. JR said they only caught smallmouth bass this past week. Tom fishing right above the Stockton bridge did well on smallmouth bass fishing in the afternoons with minnows and grubs. As dark came he caught a few nice 17 to 21 inch walleyes with crankbaits and grubs. Charlie did nothing in the river but went up the Tohickon Creek catching plenty of rock bass, bluegills and a few 12 to 14 inch smallmouth bass with grubs, spinners and small poppers. Larry fishing out of Yardley said there are tons of 12 to 15 inch stripers hitting smaller twister tails, rattle traps and poppers. Tons of small herring and shad are in this section of the river making their return trip to the ocean. Now fishing around the Camden waterfront one fisherman told me stripers fishing was fantastic with 6 inch white grubs. He was catching fish in the 20 inch class. Rick was out several nights this week saying fishing was really slow. He only caught a few smaller bass and stripers with rattle traps and crankbaits. In the mouth of the Pennypack one fisherman at high tide did very good on 8 to 15 pound carp with boilies, corn and carp baits. He caught over 8 fish this past week. Mixed in plenty of catfish 1 to 2 pounds. Hank took out minnows and bunker fishing around the Tacony bridge catching over 25 catfish 3 to 5 pounds. He also caught a few smaller stripers mixed in. Now the upper river is high and off color so I don't know what the weekend is going to look like.
The best fishing this past week was the Pennypack Creek with it being stocked last Thursday. Anthony did well catching plenty of fish plus a nice 20 plus in fish. His buddy that day caught over 15 fish. Pete and his buddy were over Friday at the Boulevard catching 12 trout each and they also caught several bluegills, rock bass and even had a 11 pound carp. The carp was caught with a spinner. At Rhawn Street one fisherman told me there were no trout put in but he caught 2 nice rainbows, 3 catfish and a sucker all with earthworms. Dennis was up at Lemiur park saying everyone was catching plenty of trout with meal worms, wax worms and power baits. He did nothing not wanting to fish with the crowd. But a few guys were up later in the weekend catching 3 to 8 fish each with spinners, trout magnets and wax worms. At Pine Road Bruce caught a nice 19 inch palomino, 9 rainbows 11 to 15 inches and all the bluegills you wanted. These were all caught with wax worms and spinners.
Penn Warner has slowed up off the banks with Chuck and Jay only catching a few fish this past week. But some of the boat fisherman have been doing good with bass, pike and pickerel with live minnows, spinners, crankbaits, spoons and jigging metal. Jay told me one fisherman had a 8 pound bass this past week. Now Jay went over to Core Creek and tried to fish the spillway but there was no water flow which meant no fish. A few guys fishing the main lake have only been catching white perch and bluegills with smaller minnows, meal worms and twister tails. John up at Noxamixion did very good on bigger crappies fishing different structure with small tubes, twister tails and live shiners. He caught his limit of fish 1`2 to 14 inches in 6 hours on Saturday and 8 hours on Sunday. Ron did not fish this past week but told me his buddies did very good catching over 50 catfish with 2 flatheads this past week. One was 16 pound but the other was 27 pounds and both caught with live bluegills. He also had one friend fish Marsh Creek doing very good with pickerel. The lower Schuylkill river has still been very good for yellow perch and catfish with nightcrawlers, bloodworms and chicken livers. South Jersey is still hot for pickerel, bass and crappies. Union lake is the only spot I talked to anyone with this fisherman catching over 20 pickerel all with live minnows. He said there were a few bass fisherman catching a few fish but he wanted the pike.
Well that is all I have this week. Enjoy a fair looking weekend coming up. I looked at the weather for muzzle loader and we will be hunting in lots of rain. Oh well.
well not much since I talked to you last. The saltwater action is still steady
with monster blues being caught off the charger boats up north. Derek was out
with his friends this week on the Cock Robin out of Point pleasant and
slaughtered the blues both days he was out . He said both days they left the
school biting. They even had a bonus 30 plus pound cod caught on a jig. He also
said there were short stripers mixed in. John from the ice house said they were
out last week and smashed the bass about (3/4) miles of the beach. He said they
were eating spearing and pencil poppers were doing the trick. This is the first
of the bass he's seen all year in the keeper range. Notice I said 3/4 miles off
the beach not 3 to 4 miles off ! There was some discrepancy on bills face book
post were people were commenting negativity. Remember we only report what we
hear. No need to bash or act like you know it all. Everybody is a cop or a
lawyer these days and nobody knows how to mind their own business. But hey they
say take everything with a grain of salt. End rant . Well in other saltwater
action there are plenty of smaller blues all up and down the beaches of NJ. Had
a few guys also in for tog and said they were biting good.
In the river there are still a lot of catties and small stripers around. Had
a customer fishing around the Camden area and said he was bailing in schoolie
stripers on white gotcha grubs. Also there are plenty of smallies being caught
up and down the river . Jr from Delaware river bass guide service was out the
other day on the upper river and did very well on the smallies. They had fish up
to 4lbs. Still some walleye being picked up.
Jay just stopped into the shop and said penn Warner club has been terrible. He
said between the lack of rain and the guck on top of the water he said ur lucky
if u can get ur bait into the water at some spots. He said he did manage to pick
up a nice northern tho the other day.
Penny pack has been great for trout. Haven't been out since last time I've
talked to you but still hearing great reports. I am very impressed with the
quality of the fish they put in this fall. The only thing I can complain about
is that they did not stock the creek as low as they usually do ! They stopped at
the welsh road bridge . They skipped All my holes.
Well than that leaves hunting. Been slacking this week. Didn't get to go out at
all. Last Friday I had errans to run all day and a little trout fishing and on
Saturday I had a golf outing. Going to attempt to hunt Tommorow and definitely
going out Saturday morning for the opener of duck season. Gotta get the boat and
blind together and I will be set. Well that's all for me this week. Tight lines
Joseph Kieffer been out twice archery hunting, I am seeing some good doe but none have given me a shot yet. Gonna head out again tomorrow morning in montgomery county.
My buddy jack was in the Delaware bay and him and 2 other guys caught 15-17 amberjack Drew
Fisherman Magazine -CHRIS LIDO'S VIDEO UPDATE
Fall weather moved in with wind, some rain and clouds, but the action for canyon tuna and swords, bluefish and bottom fishing for ling and cod was still good when boats could pound out. Sea bass opens Saturday giving regional anglers a much needed option and rainfish are flooding the surf bringing bass and blues.
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/
