Tackle World

August 10, 2020:
"Power came back on Friday," said Mark at Tackle World when I spoke with him over the weekend. He said it has been hard to find a boat launch on Lake Hopatcong or Greenwood Lake that will allow you to launch and fish at night to get in on the dark hour fishing. He told us some of the store's regulars were fishing the bigger reservoirs like Round Valley, Monksville, Spruce Run, Merrill Creek, etc. since the storm as their waters have remained fishable.

    The word over at Tackle World was also decent catches of smallies are being had in the larger streams. Anglers stopping in the store are reporting good topwater action early in the day and some small spinnerbait and jig-swimbait combinations taking the bass in the late mornings especially in areas that have shadows on the water. In addition they mentioned some decent panfishing in local small ponds and lakes.
