Still at the mercy of the State of Pennsylvania for the fishing license machine. The warden has been in for the interview and was going to send what information in to expedite the process. Well here we are Friday a week later still in limbo. Will be recalling on Monday to see if we can get a date so we can let our customers know when to come in.
The weather the past couple weeks has kept the fishing reports light coming in. Penn Warner guys have been doing fair with perch, crappies and pickerel fishing live minnows, twister tails and Silver Buddies. One fisherman picked up a 32-inch northern pike with jerk bait early in the week. One fisherman doing well on crappies fishing Tullytown cove with wax worms and jigs. Another fisherman picked up a few yellow perch in the Neshaminy Marina with smaller minnows along the docks. The spillway at Core Creek a few white perch with live minnows, wax worms and trout magnets.
Some of the best fishing is coming from south Jersey. At Batso spillway some decent numbers of pickerel with spinners, twister tails and live minnows. Further down the road past the boat ramp one fisherman picked up a bunch of pickerel under a small bridge with live minnows. Fishing out of Crowley’s Landing several guys have been catching decent numbers of pickerel, crappies and largemouth bass fishing live minnows, twister tails and Rapala minnows. Richie had a couple days on Lake Lenape only catching smaller pickerel on Shad Raps. John took his first trip down to Union but found it too windy to even launch his boat. So he fished off the shoreline only to catch a few bluegills with small jigs. A couple of his friends have been doing great on yellow perch and crappies around the dam with minnows, shiners and marabou jigs. Tom out several times on Lake Hapatcong catching some pickerel with jerk baits, spinners and Rapala shallow runners.
There still is some good ice fishing from the Pocono’s north but I have not talked to one fisherman this past week.
Saltwater fishing has been tough with all the windy days. But the few guys we have talked to the fishing have been quite slow. Several trips out for blackfish, ling, cod and tilefish with only a few fish caught. Only good report I have is from a fisherman down in Marathon Key catching good numbers of snook and mangrove snappers with shrimp and pinfish.
Well I hope I have better news next week for fishing reports and for fishing licenses. I will post ASAP when the state does get out and sets up the machine. Bill
