1. After a carp swam into a floating, downed tree and broke my line, I landed an 8 lber on my last cast of the day with corn bait in the 81 degree Millstone River. ...more I applied maximum pressure with 12 lb test mono in order to keep it away from the tree and it made several huge splashes before giving up after moss covered its eyes. It bent my #4 long shank gold hook. Catching fish in a weedy, snag filled river is very difficult.

      In 1990 I had a monster carp in NC break me off in a bush 100 yards out. It got stuck to bush with line so I swam out to catch/free it. Got close it freed itself!

      They fight like a 5 pound bass. Iโ€™ve had a number of tournaments where I think I have a giant bass on and it turns out to be a catfish. Them and carp know how to ...more fight.

  3. Caught a 14 lb milt leaking male common carp in the 82 degree Millstone River this evening with ShopRite canned whole kernel corn on a #4 gold hook. It picked up ...more the bait then swam away very fast late in the day. Made a long run downriver. Big piles of moss kept getting stuck in the tip of my rod. I stopped reeling many times in order to remove the moss from my line. Took lots of pics. Gave the fish to Tony in the parking lot when I left. Landed 34 carp this year including 5 in the past three days from the Millstone River.

      Awesome battle. I need to have a carp road ready when bass fishing. I always see 20-50 pounders.

      I use to catch a bunch of 24-27โ€ flounders on BPS Tripple Ripple 3โ€ white jigs during 1989โ€™s in SC. Iโ€™ve caught probably over 20 species of fish on them in fresh ...more and saltwater.

  10. Northern water snakes ๐Ÿ were swimming up and down river inches from my boots this morning in the 74 degrees Delaware River behind Arm and Hammer ballpark in Trenton. ...more I never saw so many snakes before. I didnโ€™t think that they would live in Trenton. Didnโ€™t get a hit hit while ultralight jigging.

      Cool to watch them in their element


I'm retired and make nearly 300 fishing trips per year in NJ.
