  2. fishing partner Steve caught biggest fish tofay

    4 lb. 3 oz. Largemouth Bass with a crawl

  3. Captain John finally listened to my advice and head out for deeper water although he waited until the end of the day and the south wind and swell turned the bite ...more off. Like Chris said almost a limit. I had mine and was working on Johns. If he listened to me in the am we definitely would have tripled the boat.

    3. NJ Squatch 0
      We were targeting them. They are a blast and are very hard fighting. Get out there soon. Once the water temps hit 60 they start spawning and are tougher to catch.

  9. With most parts of most rivers blown out and the wind at killer speeds saturday we had very limited options but my buddy had some sweet spots that he was nice enough ...more to share that were not only fishable, but gave us some nice sized recently stocked rainbows as well as this nice holdover (the difference in the fight is unmistakable!)

    2. Neal M 0
      Nice looking trout
    3. this and one other one were all full of piss and vinegar. I thought i had a monster hooked both times, but they were just 14-15" super fired up holdover stocked ...more rainbows from past years! basically a whole different species from the freshly stocked ones.
