Bassin Is Tough In Nj Last Few Days

Recommended Posts

well with all the rain, high water levels, and general chaos the weather systems have been in my state , the fish are well aware if it and must be just as confused as we have been....started out pretty good with a few fish before sunup(too dark to take pix) and we thought it was gonna be an okay bite......Fish definately wanted a reaction bait, that being many follows and short strikes on spinnerbaits,cranks, and rattles.....but nothing steady except Mt. Snot Rocket showing up almost taking my Megabass Trick Darter jerbaits(I'm always nervous when I get a pickerel on these as the bait is $27.00 and am afraid it will snap my line and I'll lose the bait)......Anyway, should start picking up soon after a few better steady weather days....Here's a few to prove it happenned....


Bent the cr@p out of my spinnerbait!

The fish in Jersey have definitely been shut down for the past week or so. Actually the only days where I've been able to establish a pattern have been on the rainy days. I went to one of our "Lunker" lakes this past Thursday and caught a limit of 15" keepers, plus I had the lake to myself from 6am to 2pm because of the light rain and overcast. The day before that I was fishing a smaller local lake and caught a few hawgs, a giant pickeril, and a bullhead cat all on the same spinnerbait along the same road bed. I don't mind catching snot rockets, the big girls put up a heck of a fight and are really beautiful.


My advice would be to slow waaay down, cast as close as you can to cover, and lighten up on your tackle, you should see some results doing this.
