FISHING LOGS: New Jersey & Delaware Bay


Posted By J. B. Kasper, November 20, 2017
 This will be our last report of the 2017 season; suffice to say most anglers probably won’t miss the 2017 season. Simply put it was an off year with too many weather problems and inconsistent conditions. While on occasion there was some good fishing, seemed like every time the good fishing popped up the weather came along and set the fishing back. The best fishing this past year for me was the largemouth fishing; smallmouth fishing in the rivers and streams on the other hand was off, as was the striped bass run in the Delaware. Walleye fishing was good in the spring but poor in the fall. On an upbeat note shad netting in Lambertville showed an excellent spring run and the numbers of small shad in the river in the fall was very good. Both, spring and fall trout fishing was good or poor depending on whom you talked too. Some waters also produced some good catches of hybrids, pike and landlocked salmon. Carp, catfish and panfishing was decent most of the year and pickerel fishing was decent in the Pine Barrens. If the weather predictions are right it looks like the winter fishing is going to tough.
