  4. Gorgeously colored Wild or long term holdover rainbow, not too common in NJ.

    Rainbow Trout with a Jig

    1. the hold over and wild ones are too rare here in NJ. I'd only eat stocked ones but they dont taste as good unfortunately until they are on a natural diet for ...more a season or so.
    2. thats a beautiful rainbow trout they are good to eat

    Brown Trout with a Jig

    1. Christopher Pereira 0
      Hahaha, i wonder why some trout dont move. I might have to see if this guy will bite a third time!
    2. Capt Morris Campbell 0
      he looks smart to me. No match for your angling skillsπŸ‘
    3. Christopher Pereira 0
      I thought you were saying it was a dumb stocked trout haha
    4. Capt Morris Campbell 0
    5. Christopher Pereira 0
      Morris thats a wild one! No stocking in this area or anywhere near. If it was stocked at some point years ago it def earned wild status at this point.... still ...more not smart enough to resist the jig πŸ˜‰

    Tiger Trout with a black wooly bugger

    1. Christopher Pereira 0
      most likely it was a fish that escaped from a private club stocked area and was roaming the river for a year or so.

      Thats a pretty brown Chris!
    3. Christopher Pereira 0
      two of us were throwing plugs for hours with nothing so i had to slow it down, it worked! but they hit justin's plug later in the day too anyway. we only had ...more 3 on magnet and 2 on plug almost a full day, pretty slow. don't worry though my trout magnets still have a very dangerous murderous barb on them.
    4. NJ Squatch 0
      What no plug?

      rob, i actually had a big buck walk right up on me when i caught that big rainbow in a different spot the other week, I thought it was going to fight me for the ...more trout.

      Eddie, until you find the tracking device i implanted in you and remove it, i'll be following you everywhere!!!
