March started off with some beautiful fishing days and eventually we were plagued with snow, rain and cold weather. The days that were enjoyable for fishing gave local anglers excellent opportunities to get out and enjoy the weather as well as some great fishing. The lakes got active with Yellow Perch, Bass and Pickerel as well as the holdover trout from last years stocking.
Nightcrawlers seemed to be working all around but many customers were going with the live shiners for a more favorable offering.
Several of our customers as wellas the guys down from the shop have been spending some time at the beautiful Connetquot state park.
The park is now running two sessions. The 8-12 and 12-4. If you haven’t been here before I suggest you go check it out. Some of the trout being caught here have been pushing 5-6 pounds! Take a look at our site for pictures. We have also been adding more and more to our fly fishing inventory also, so if your looking to get
into the sport come down to the shop and we will happily put you in the right direction.
With all the warm weather we’re starting having it was looking like it would be an early season for Striped Bass. Water temperatures were rising quickly and even a few reports of holdover schoolies were going around.
Hopefully after these cold days we can get back on track and see some schoolie action start up by early to mid April.
Local lakes were also supposed to be stocked already but due to the inclement weather it was pushed off for a few more days.
One last reminded is that we will be attending the St Josephs College fishing flea market on April 2nd.
