1. Here's another one from Monday, avg size, to compare with the other one that was a tank! Even these avg size ones fight pretty good...not sure where they got ...more a reputation for not fighting well.

  2. Not too often you get immediate returns on an investment, but i finally got the contour detail map card for my sonar/gps unit and it really helped me comb a pretty ...more specific zone that a few loan fish were hanging out in. Big one was thick and came right at the buzzer. solid after work quickie for what's been a rough start to 2018!

    Brown Trout with a Rapala X-Raps

    1. Nice!
    2. Rich Pardy 0
      Nice brown buddy!!
    3. Lol I know I'm extremely lucky. :) but texts and NJ are great to, Tight lines!
    4. Noah, you just don't know how lucky you are!! :)
    5. Same here in my part of Texas, I love fly fishing when I go up to Montana but unfortunately its very difficult to do in my neck of the woods. Space is usually my ...more issue, I try from time to time but normally end up hung in all the trees behind me. lol
    6. it's pretty cold...our lakes are actually starting to freeze again, back down from 41 degrees...not great for the fish bite haha. Noah, it's hard to explain ...more to guys that have good fly fishing fisheries like you, but trust me...in NJ fly fishing just does not catch as good quality and quantity most of the time. we don't have great hatches and a lot of our best spots are between rocks, trees, overhangs...things that just can't be targeted as effectively with fly fishing techniques.
    7. When are you gonna start fly fishing
    8. nice catch ,looks cold
    9. Great pic!!

  5. Here's one i forgot to post from before we got buried in snow again. Brown trout seem to be the only fish i can catch lately....i'm not complaining but ...more i don't like having my fishing options cut down. Just going to keep exploring while waiting for this weather to stabilize.

    Brown Trout with a Rapala Original Floaters

    1. guys, yes i've fly fished a couple of times, it's just not as effective. you can't pick apart the hard to get to spots as effectively. The couple of ...more times i fly fished in NJ, I KNOW i missed out of fish as i went along.
    2. Chris please just try a few days on the fly, it is a completely different experience
    3. Fly rod will trick those bows if you can drift it right
    4. Have you tried fly fishing
    5. i used a jig for a little bit and i have caught some nice ones on a jig, but I def try to force feed the jerkbait most of the time haha
    6. Bryan Harper 0
      Well done! Love catching Browns on jerkbaits!
    7. Good looking Brown Chris! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  6. Felt more like exercise than fishing today with all the knee deep bottom mud and foot deep snow, but at least I landed 2 decent wild browns.

    1. sunday looks nice for sure compared to the last two weeks!
    2. I'm thin king about Sunday. My customer doesn't want me working on the weekends
    3. thanks bud, I'm going to keep bugging you to take a break from work to come fishing once this crap weather warms up a little!

  7. Now does that look like it's for you bro!?

    1. this weather def sucks...it's screwing up the fishing big time
    2. I'm sick of the snow and cold. Florida is sounding better each day. 35 hours straight snow plowing. No nap, no breaks nothing. I think this is the last year ...more I'm plowing unless they double my pay.
    3. I don't know about eating him, but if he comes by me when I'm out in the timber with my .17HMR....... Well, let's just say, he'll end up like ...more the coyote!!!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

      Thanks rob. 8" of super wet heavy snow pulling down tree branches. Fortunately only lost power for an hour. Others are so fortunate. Someone needs to eat that ...more damn ground hog !
    5. squatch and i are far enough from the coast that aspect won't affect us, but i'm not looking forward to driving home in this snowy windy mess.
    6. He just wanted an after dinner cigar! Could you give him a light?......... On a side note, be careful up that way Chris (& Squatch) ! Looks like big winds ...more and tide surge coming. πŸ™Everyone up that way are in our prayers!
    7. He looks hungry:)

  10. Was targeting muskie...you get bait flags sometimes from the big baits tripping the tipup, but i knew a fish had this one when i got there. So i knew i was fighting ...more something...felt weird though...peekaboo big old ugly kitty face in the hole haha. My PB Catfish through the ice though and beat the all too familiar muskie skunk so it's all good...still looking for that first ice musky of 2018!

    Channel Catfish with a Creek Chub

    1. Rich, this is the fake background...i didn't want to get a bad reputation here on fishidy!
    2. Yes Jacob, even though the musky here grow to pretty good size, they can't spawn successfully here they're all stocked. I'm assuming that is why there ...more is no closed season for them here.
    3. Can you target musky through the ice in NJ? Here in northern Wisconsin the season for them closes at the end of November and doesn't open again until almost ...more the end of May.

      Nice, you caught 2 nice cats thru the ice cause that dont look like the club in the background of the one on Instagram lol

      Nice kitty cat!! Haven't caught one of them threw the ice yet. but was talking about doing that this season..
