    1. NJ Squatch 0
      There is always the other one if this guy is a pia
    2. They use it for the weed harvesters
    3. Its not emergency only
    4. Of course we can... where’s the sign? We called the town, they said no problem to use it, as long as it’s not blocked. Him trying to block it with his car is probably ...more illegal though haha
    5. It's actually a fire lane for emergency use only. We are not even supposed to be using it at all.
    6. It's actually a fire lane for emergency use only. We are not even supposed to be using it at all.
    7. Honestly the guy that lives there has no right or authority to block us from that ramp. We are quiet. Only noise we all make is the truck engine so if a car engine ...more bothers him, too bad, he lives on a road! Haha. He needs to personally deal with the loud drunks, not us. We should still be using that ramp
    8. I wish we could Squatxh

      We need to handle these guys ourselves art. They are a plague
    12. Only way to fly Greg. When you teach people how to fish and where to catch them they pass it on to 12 bubbies and it's ruined. Just like the ramp i've used ...more for 20 years. Ruined scumbags waking up neighbors and leaving garbage. #IHATENJ

  6. First time out for Fluke/Summer flounder. I boated 2 shorts and a skate.

    2 lb. 17.0 in. Fluke with a Jig n Gulp

    1. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    2. @ Squatch. I would rather pay a few bucks than fish with Yappy Twan Twan with the squeaky voice and be aggravated by an idiot so called captain that has no clue ...more how to catch fish or even find them. Without Chris P. He would only catch Porgy.
    3. @ Greg, it was only big enough for a hat.

  7. I finally had a chance to get out at night. Landed 3 Wallygators and lost 1 baby Wiper. The Lake was like glass when I launched the boat, 2 hours later the winds ...more blasted up to 15 mph and I was out of there.

    1. Thanks Ya'll
    2. Greg Malachowski 0
      oh yea. im typically a Lone Ranger out there. Wind makes it interesting. especially when you've got the anchor down and it isn't catching and you are quickly ...more approaching rocky patches/shallow waters. best bet is to avoid or just duck into a cove if possible.
    3. Bryan Harper 0
      Damn wind! Sometimes it’s needed but I prefer it to stay at 0-10 mph! Nice Eye!πŸ‘πŸŽ£πŸ»

      U should have jumped in with Artie
    5. Squatch pussed out
    6. Alone on the Lake is not fun. Especially when the wind starts blowing waves over my bow.

  9. Still very windy today but I have been dieing to catch and cook some trout. The day was warm until the wind picked up and ruined the troll. I lost 3 due to the wind ...more throwing my boat any which way it wanted. I did land this 18 1/2 incher perfect for my smoker.

    6. they stop k them Jimbo. usually 6 months after the meat turns orange like salmon the best tasting fish in NJ as far as freshwater goes
    7. Stocked at some point but living wild for a while most likely.
    8. Jimbo Harwood 0
      Nice brown Arty!! is that a stocked lake or natural
    9. Put the shorts away, feel like temps close to 33 tonight! Wtf!

    4. Tim Crowley 0
      was there a few times myself years ago. Now I’ll cut line so I don’t break a leg or back.
    5. I pictured a woman coming out of the shower to her window, seeing him in the tree, screaming, startling arty, breaking the branch sending him plummeting into the ...more cold lake water πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    6. @Greg yes it was. The lights were on too, I told Chris to let me off on the dock and I went into stealth mode.
    7. Greg Malachowski 0
      Please tell me that was someones backyard too. Imagine looking out your window at night and seeing that? so awesome.
    8. LOL, Squatch Chris beeped when we passed your house at 2 am. Look to the left of my left foot that was a dead branch I snapped off.The lure was lodged in the second ...more Y after that.

      Lol! If I can reach a lure I snagged I’ll go get it! I’ve swam 40-50 yds out from shore to retrieve my 130 Whopper Plopper that snapped off do to a wind knot in ...more my braid! πŸ˜œπŸ»πŸ‘
    13. I was praying that the branches held me or I would have plunged in the 50 degree water. I had to snap off a few dead branches

I am a Fishaholic, I go crazy if I can't fish. My favorite fish are anything that swims and puts up a good fight.
