4/12 - On a small Jersey pond. 1st LM of the year on a fly. 1st Bluegill same fly. Lots of follows.
4/14 - Valley Creek. 2 browns, 3 missed hits on a bluebird day. It was really nice to get back on Valley. I love moving water!
Jim Warner - SJCFA
Got a few nice white perch jigging in the AM up the GEHR. And a few nice Crappies in the PM in the same spot. In the mean time went to Tuckahoe lake for trout and got skunked using worms. Go figure. Yesterday got a small bass and a few small crappies on a feeder stream to the GEHR all jigging twister tails.
Last minute decision to fish today, went down to a brackish part of the river and were catching nice white perch throwing small spoons and spinners. Some real nice perch on metal and a consistent bite for about 2 hours when my partner hooks a hickory shad. Had heard some roomers that there were a couple of shad caught up river and we wound up catching a half dozen with a total 24 perch, all released except 4 my buddy kept for dinner. 'nother nice day of fishing. all on ultra light tackle with the hickories often jumping out of the water.

4-21 Union Lake
Hit Union this am at around 5:30. Light wind, water was calm so I tied on old faithful black jitterbug. Second cast had what seemed to be a light bite but once I set the hook that was definitely not the case. Really bad pics because it was still dark and I didn't have my headlamp on me. Weighed in at 6.02 lbs.
I have had a horrible year (for size) while fishing from land. I have had some 20 fish days but have yet to catch a bass over 3lbs. It's amazing how last year I was catching big bass and this year it has been dink central. Last year I was crushing fish on jigs and this year jogs have not done a damn thing for me.
