Big Phish

Spruce Run, NJ

Recommended Posts

I've been meaning to give this lake a try and I'm looking for some insight from people who have fished it before.  I almost went last weekend but decided against it because its big and I'm extremely lazy and I use a kayak.  Now I hear that they have motorized boat rentals.  Can anyone confirm that they definitely do?  Can I get some some tips on where to fish it and what to use?  I'm particularly interested in walleye and hybrids, as well and LMs and SMs.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.  :D

WELCOME.

I know they rent boats there, but not sure about motorized.  Here is the boat rental phone number: (908-638-8234)

Only ever caught Walleye and Hybrids by accident fishing for bass.

There have been numerous discussions about Spruce Run here at BassResource over the Years.  Go to the Search function,

1. type in Spruce Run in Search For

2. stick with Northeast Bass Fishing

3. make sure you change  This Post Was Made In the Last to (all posts).  

You will find some really good information.  

Good luck at SR.  Right now the bass fishing is probably at it's best.  I wish I could go, but no open time in the next month.

I am just learning the lake been out about 4 times and havn't landed any yet.  I see the bass jumping all around me though.  Zel told me before the point that the boat launch is on and the point across were good.  Here is the link of our thread

Never fished RV but from the talk in the area SR is a great bass lake.  I think Zel would agree.

Spruce run hybrids are great to catch, hella fighters, pretty big, most i have caught or have seen caught are in the 4-8 lb range.  I am a rookie fisherman that is lucky enough to have friends who are avid bass fisherman.  Right now is a great time to catch them as they are very active from late may to early july.  We usually only fish for them with topwater, and only from 11pm to 3 or 4 am.  That is when they seem to usually be feeding.  Do not bother going  if you are a numbers guy, this isn't the right lake, but we usually get a half dozen or so a night.  I have never tried but i have heard they love live herring too!

good luck
