First 2019 Trip of the Season
Since Tog season is open ttill the end of the month in New Jersey, Cliff and I decided to check out the canal for some tog. We had a good day totaling 40 throwback tog, a winter flounder, and the take-home, surprise catch of the day, this 13 inch kingfish (which through this site I learned is also called a mullet). Don't usually catch these until the water warms up in the summer, so this caught me by surprise when I reeled this up! Tight lines all!

First Trip of 2019
Finally made my first trip of 2019, as I was itching to get in on the hot stripper bite. Went out on 4/17 in the afternoon. Fort to the grounds and found strippers blowing up over a large area. I ended the trip catching 7 stripers—5 of those keeper size to #20. I also missed another 12-15 bites. All fish were released and all caught on a 6” white swim shad.

Birthday Bass
Tried to slip up the creek for a little early birthday fishing. Wishful thinking to boat 66 LMB to match my trips around the sun. A great day but the water was low and I couldn’t get My Office up to the honey hole with out wearing myself out. Finally found a spot in the sun around a duck blind and had a huge hit on the red crawdad crankbait but lost him. Finally a nice bass on the whopper plopper fished around heavy cover and then this one on a Senko right under the duck blind.

Opening Day Skunk
The long winter has ended. The snow mostly melted, with only the dregs remaining in the deepest, shadowy places of the forest. Lake ice, retreating from the shore in a glum surrender to wistful spring has opened an area large enough to cast for any fish willing to play along in this great resurgence of primal instinct. I stand there on the low point and ponder which lure to tempt them. In the end the choice is easy, my tried and trusty whopper-plopper. The WP is fun to cast and anticipate even when it does not draw an explosive strike. I’ve had fish grab it savagely as soon as it hit the water, just before I pulled it out and anywhere in between. I trip the bail, swing the rod back and sweep it forward….

Forty-five minutes ago I had paraded out of the house with my gear, proclaiming that I would not be back before dark. This gave me about two hours to fish. Upon arrival I realized that I was too late to get the best spot, but the cool temperature, steady north wind and thin cloud had discouraged any other rivals. Here I was now in the second best spot having used each of my lures enough to realize the fish were not interested in them. I don’t know if it is just me but I have noticed that as I get older, cold temperatures cause my kidneys to reach levels of production that rival happy hour at my favourite pub. That hot post-supper cup of tea had magically expanded to an alarming volume. Cleaning weeds after each cast had dampened my hands enough that they were now numb. My three layers of clothing, wool cap and two hoods had surrendered to the invasive pressure of the wind. My feet were cold. Had I caught anything, or even had a convincing bite, I am sure none of those sensations would have registered in my adrenaline fired brain. But I hadn’t and they did. It is time to go home and rejoice that fishing season is now upon us and we have six more months of better days. But this one was still better than my best day at work. Yaaaahoooooo!

Some mild February weather convinced me to try my hand at some mid-winter fishing.

I caught a decent brown and this nice rainbow stocked by the state. Both were released safely to fight another day.

JimmyHi Welcome to Stackfish! Sparks, Glencoe and Monkton Md all have parking for the NCR railroad trail, these are great spots to get to the river. Further north, look for any bridge that crosses the river, most have adhoc parking sites. Good Luck!

Personal Best Smallie on my soon to be home lake
I haven't been out much over the last year and a half as my wife and I are preparing our retirement house for permanent occupation. @tdawg reminded me to check the site again so I thought I'd post the highlight of a very limited fishing season. I was just out cruising the lake in #bos-mon and took some rods just in case. About 1.5 miles from my house in 6-8 feet of water I found a huge school of Smallies suspended over a large flat sand bottom. I hooked the first one with a white whopper plopper #wwp but lost it after a fierce fight. This one took a white rooster tail with a chartreuse blade #wrtcb. The reel broke when I set the hook and I had to hand line her into the boat. She put on quite a show and pulled so hard she cut my finger. But here she is, all 18 inches of her and now she is back in the lake building up for round 2. I have 96 working days left before I retire and can fish full time. You guys will see more posts starting then.

Winter Fatty
Finally a break from wind rain and ice though we had to break ice to get out of the ramp area to get out to moving water. Bass were hungry at the honey hole where the water was 55f and air temp 29f. This fatty and 13 more similar size in an hour and a half. Great start to 2019 bass angling.
