    A call to Hook House Bait and Tackle got us several reports. Trilco is giving up perch, pickerel and panfish, while Lake Shenandoah is serving up some morning largemouth and plenty of panfish on worms. Worms fished the Ocean County College Pond are producing panfish, catfish and an occasional bass. Last but not least Manasquan Reservoir is giving up some bass or topwater baits and crappies on minnows in the trees.

The back lakes at Colliers are also giving up pickerel on minnows and topwater baits, as are the bogs and ponds off Route 70 west of Lakehurst. Bass and panfish are being caught at the Ocean County College Pond and bass and perch are serving up some action at Trilco.

Shenandoah, Carasaljo, Lester's Pond and other local waters are seeing some good fishing on topwater frogs and plugs. Live bait and topwater baits are also taking pickerel at Trilco and in the bogs and ponds off Route 70. Last but not least the pond at Ocean County Community College is serving up some good panfishing for the younger set on worms fished under floats.

    Another place we got word of some good mid-state fishing was at Hook House Bait and Tackle. Dennis told me he has been selling worms to panfishermen as fast as he can get them in. The Ocean Country College Pond, Lake Shenandoah and other local lakes and ponds are teaming with bluegills and other panfish and giving anglers some excellent light tackle fishing, especially the youngsters who are out of school. Pickerel fishing remains hot in the cedar waters on minnows and the Toms in the River Styx area is still giving up some trout.
