1. 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!

  4. Slayed it with Chris before the deep freeze. Rain started way earlier than predicted. Finished the day with 6 brownies, a dozen mongo slaps, and another NJ skillful ...more angler pickerel. Totally worth it for a now frozen solid boat. Man do I love fall smallmouth.

      Beautiful pike, Squatch. What section of the Passaic was this? Been having a harder time at the end of October. Any luck lately?
