  1. The quality of the stocked trout here in NJ has gone way up this year! This one hit hard and jumped clear out of the water 3-4 times!

      You probably just killed your monster trout, squeezed it’s belly too tight. Try holding by gills next time. Every other NJ fish is huge. That’s what I was catching ...more in NJ in high school. 😐

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

    Rainbow Trout with a Jig

    1. Christopher Pereira 0
      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. joseph pfalzgraf 0
      thats a beautiful rainbow trout they are good to eat

    Brown Trout with a Jig

      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˜‰
