Cash prizes are based on the number of people. Must have a fishing license. This is a fishing derby -- whoever catches the most Catfish wins, biggest fish will be the tie breaker. Catch and release."
I started the day at Cooper River Lake; however, the bite was pretty dead. Therefore, I ended up fishing with my friend Steve OT at Audubon Lake, which is located in Haddon Heights. I ended up catching 2 Common Carps on kernel corn: 3.5 and 6.5lbs. For my surprise, there were quite a few people fishing at Haddon Lake, even though it was super cold...!
It was windy, chilly, but at least I got some fish! Good stuff.
-- 1 Brown Bullhead
I went fishing with my friend Matt A. at the Upper Cooper River, Haddonfield, NJ. Since he never caught a Carp, I invited him to tag along!
It was a little bit chilly; however, we managed to stay warm! I finished the day with 5 Black Crappie and 1 Brown Bullhead -- nothing big. Matt finished not only with the first Carp of his life (a 2.82lber), but the second as well! The biggest fish of the day is portrayed below: a 8.33lbs Common Carp on the kernel corn.
It's cold...but the fishing is still on!
I participated at a local Catfish derby with my friend Don G.. We fished for 5 hours on the Delaware River (Frankford Arsenal), and Don finished in first place! As for me...I finished in last (I got skunked). Somehow, I always get skunked on the Delaware River. Haha.
Hopefully I'll do better next time! =)
Tough day on the Banks. I went there with my friend Matt A. and we both got skunked in three hours of fishing! I had only one Catfish bite and I couldn't land it. It was that bad. =/
I headed for the Manayunk Canal with my friend Matt A.. The plan for the day was to Carp; however, most of the place was frozen once I arrived there!
The day before was super cold (33 max), but I didn't expect the canal to be halfway frozen. Nevertheless, we got skunked after 3:30 hours of fishing. Not a single bite! =/
- 6 Bluegill
I decided to hit Linden Lake, Lindenwold, for some Black Crappies. The weather has been pretty cold recently, so I figured that the Crappies would at least entertain me!
For my surprise, Linden Lake was frozen when I arrived there! It was raining for almost an hour before my arrival, not to mention that air temperatures were above 32F. Regardless, the little Lake was still frozen. I was so disappointed! =(
Without many options, I ended up going to the Kirkwood Lake, which was close by. I finished the day with 6 Bluegills on nightcrawlers.
I did hook up with a nice fish, but it swam into something and got snagged. Unable to see the fish or pull my line, I ended up snapping it. From my perspective, it was probably a nice Largemouth Bass. It bit on a whole 4 inch Bluegill, 5/0 hook.
Hopefully the next sessions will be better. I'll be focusing more on spots where I know I'll catch fish. Heh.
