  3. John's boat was pulled this week so before we wrapped it up we headed out on the Elaine B and I couldn't be happier with the experience! It was like fishing ...more a charter boat for the price of a party boat! good company and fishing, despite bad conditions and i managed to boat 36 tog and 4 keepers! YUMMY!

  4. oops i did it again! 2 years ago same time of year same area i got a fish of this caliber, yesterday i got another one! It's about the same exact length so ...more i don't think it's the same fish, this one wasn't quite as wide either. scroll down my catches to this time two years ago and let me know what you think! Hell of a fight though. she made one crucial mistake though... her first move was to shoot out of the downed tree hole i found her in and i was able to get between her and the tree fast to keep here from getting back under it or i would've been done on #4 line! Happy Thanksgiving, this big fatty is lucky she ain't a turkey!

    1. lee Benji 0
      awesome catch πŸŽ£πŸ‘Š
  6. With the S word in the forecast and the beautiful weather had to play hooky one last time before the boat hibernates. Daytime was terrible but the trip was made ...more during magic hour with 3 keeper lizards. The last one wouldn’t go back down so it will be fish for Thanksgiving!

    20 in. Walleye

    1. nice Walleye NJ
  7. I first tried Spruce Run Reservoir because my cousin Mark still hasn't caught a Hybrid Striped Bass. Nothing there. We went to Round Valley Reservoir for 2 hours ...more and weren't disappointed. We landed a 17 inch Rainbow, an 18 inch Laker and my first ever Tiger Trout. Just shy of 16 inches he was released back to grow bigger.

    Tiger Trout with a Homemade Fly

    1. yeah kind of!
    2. NJ Squatch 0
      Awesome tiger. Def on my bucket list
    3. Looks like a Spanish Mackerel pattern to me
    4. That is the craziest tiger I’ve seen! Looks like a rainbow brook hybrid rather than a brown brook hybrid!
