Thought it was way bigger with the way it fought. After the hook set she peeled some drag and of course, there were 2 nerve-wracking jumps. Such an awesome fish to catch. Weighed in a shade under 3.5 lbs.

    8-14 Union Lake

    This summer I've only caught smallmouths mostly during the same time period, an hour before dawn to an hour after. This am was cool because when I got to the lake there was a large school of something either shad or shiners about 30 yards from the shore. 2nd cast into the school nailed a really nice one on a 3.8" keitech swimbait. Weighed in at 4.3 lbs.

    Rainbow Lake - 8/25/2018 7am-12

    Front part of lake was muck city...worked my way towards the back while working the edges of the muck. Was throwing topwater and lizards. no interest.
    Got near the back and was working the sides with the lizards, got into 3 small bass and was bit off by a large pickerel. Threw a keitech swim bait along the muck on my way back to the ramp and got one more small guy.

    Other people on the lake were also saying they were having a rough go of it as well.

    8-25 Lake Audrey

    This guy had the mouth of a 6 lber but was one of the skinniest bass I've seen. Barely cracked 3lbs caught on a frog jitterbug. I must say I'm guilty of buying just about every new lure that comes out but I still haven't found any topwater that outfishes the jitterbug.

    Once in awhile I will stop at the dam and take a few casts for smallmouths or stripers. Got a nice striper on a black storm 360 coastal. 26" 7lbs.

    Had some decent action with Yellow Perch in January, but it was tough to find time in Feb. That will change this weekend. The one on the left was nearly 14" and quickly released after the pic. South Jersey tidal rivers.

    The warm weather this past week got the Yellow Perch moving in the Mays Landing area, hit a couple spots and got a dozen on jigs. Most were decent size. Tried Tuckahoe for white perch but only got one.

    Last Perch report for the year. Couple of good weekends of Yellow Perch in March, Mays Landing. Doesn't seem like very many people seek them out anymore, but the Perch don't care. Got back into it mid April, but targeting White Perch. Hit them really well in the impoundment sluice ways near Tuckahoe, big spawners on little jigs. Lots of fun. It's all about timing it right with the incoming or outgoing tide. Today it was stupid fishing on decent sized spawned out fish that looked to be mostly male. On to other things.

    South Jersey Report 5/4

    Most places bass are near the end of bedding as i see baby fries for the entire week.
    Crappies been off most beds
    Bluegills are terrorizing bass beds while some are starting to bed
    Big Pickerels are roaming shallows, probably feeding on bluegills that are raiding bass beds.

    Maybe the smallest bodies of water are done with the spawn but the majority of water has still yet to to see bass bedding. I was out last weekend and didn't even get 60 degree water temps. I think we have a good month or so before its truly over.

    Hit Rainbow yesterday. Slow start. I finally moved into a cove that warms up the quickest. I ended up landing five fish from here. Water temp got to 68. Had about 8 bites for the morning. Missed one on a lizard. Landed a total of 6 bass, all on a t-rigged 4" Senko. Best was around 2 1/2lb, a few others at 2lbs.

    Hit Cedarville this morning. 65-69 water temps Bass are on beds. My first bass hit less then ten minutes in. A solid 4+. I was throwing a wacky rigged 5" Senko. It took about an hour to get another strike. Then it picked up and I landed two over 3lbs. Had a total of 7 bass for the morning. Missed a few hookups. Best ones came around shallow pads.
