Holiday Lake - Montague, NJ

Went to visit my father and we did our usual routine of fishing from the neighbor's dock. Before the thunder storm hit, Pop ended up with five good size sunfish and I had three sunfish and one small mouth bass. I almost had a big snapping turtle that popped his head out of the water and chased my soft bait to the dock. His head was about the size of my first. Glad I didn't hook him.

Finally got out to fish today. Caught one tiny small mouth bass and two sunfish. After that it died. I tried the D&R Canal just down the road in Franklin and got skunked. I gave it one more try in the Raritan River in Manville and had nothing but a few light little hits. Put the dog and gear back in the truck and went home.

Franklin Twsp

Took the dog and went fishing in the D&R canal in Franklin Twsp. I was hoping for some smallies. I kept throwing out lures and spiners, but not a single bite or nipple for that matter. I ended up switching to worms for bait and caught Bluegills and Pumkinseed Sunfish. Better than nothing. I'll have to come back at night and fish for catfish.

Farm Pond - Metler's Lane

Had a great two hours of fishing! I normally don't put fish on the stringer unless I plan on eating them.
After I released the fish back into the farm pond, I kept catching them one after another. I probability could have filled the stringer at least two more times before quitting.

Fished from 7PM til 9PM on Sunday. I had a few light hits, but no hook ups. As it began to get darker the fish started to break the surface. I ended up reeling in 6 smallies apx 8' to 10". All were released for another day of fishing.

I got out for a short while on Sunday. I could see the bass swimming back and forth,while I was standing on the bank.
I threw almost eveything I had in the tackle box at them. I even tried using worms, eggs, power bait and even floated a bobber. Not one hit. But it was still nice to get out and fish.

I finally put my gear in the truck, so I can attempt to go fishing and because of a road detour, I found a nice farm pond.
I was able to pull off the road and fish the pond. I had a lot of fun catching green & pumpkinseed sunnys. I caught and released
anywhere from (25) to (35) sunnys in an hour and a half. I had one good hit but it spit the hook. I had a lot of fun and will have to bring
the little ones along.

Raritan Bay

I decided to take Gathney's advise and forget every thing and go fishing. GREAT advise! Went out on the Capt. John out of Keport for the evening trip. Only $40.00.

I couldn't have asked for a better evening to go out fishing. The water was smooth as glass, a light breeze was blowing and kept us comfortable from the heat and humidy.

Bait fish were jumping inside the harbor and out in the bay.
Everyone was catching shorts, dogfish, skates, searobins and spider crabs.

I eneded up with five shorts and a few misses, two of them were almost keepers. Wayne caught a short, a few misses and ended up with a nice keeper that came in second place in the pool. Close but no money.

Went fishing after work and had (3) hits from small state stocked trout. They were so small that my small hooks were too big to hook them. If they were no bigger than six inches.

Quote: "Hi Bill,

It was a complete kit and everything worked as it should. The only problem is that I already sold it. It went fast. Sorry that you didn't see the follow up posting stating that it was sold. Anyway nothing ventured, noting gained.

I still haveto clean out my garage and will be posting more fishing and boating items. Look for the postings.

If you are looking for something that I don't have listed, shoot me a line and I see if I have it.

Welcome to NJ Fish Finder."
