  7. Finished the ice season on the home waters on Sunday. Finally got on a screaming hot jumbo perch bite. Flags were flying with doubles and triples. Found a good jigging ...more hole and it was drop and real. 3 solid months of ice fishing in NJ is a really good season. I am ready for open water.

    Yellow Perch

    5 lb. 30 in. Ladyfish

    1. Great bait for Tarpon Greg.
    2. haha yea was able to meet up with some friends who headed south years ago and did a lot of fishing. I'm born and raised in NJ so dont mind the cold either, but ...more after all that came with 2020 I kind of needed a breather. so eye opening to see the difference though. FL is awesome. dont think I could leave Lake Hopatcong though.
    3. just realized we didn't know what you looked like, this was the first pic you posted that someone took of you haha
    4. i don't mind the cold, but ;those tyrants need to go haha. nice catch
