I'm heading to Toms River later today to try my luck in the rain. I'll report.


I caught a nice 4# walleye in the Delaware yesterday at lunch time.

I got to TR with my buddy Bill and we found more rain and a lot more wind than I expected. Fortunately we also found a couple fish, and Bill caught the best striper at just over 24" that I've seen him land in the 2 years we've been fishing together.

After we found a spot where we could stand with the wind at our backs, or at least at our shoulders I was successful with a 4" Yo-zuri minnow and Bill with a 3" jerk bait.



I've had prettier days with worse fishing, and personally, I prefer the better fishing.

Oh, yes: We had an osprey hovering around over us for a while, too. I don't know if conditions were any good for its fishing, but it was there.

nice job Blaze; off we go; had another first cast hit today; small popper; 4+ lb bass; bought a Med Heavy rod for the cover and it paid off today; been really fun to rediscover fresh water; now can't wait to hit the beach in 4 weeks

Tried twice in the big tidal recently. One catfish each time. 20 mile difference between spots. Just slow.

A question for fly fishing readers: I'm afraid I'm going to get all wrapped up in this pursuit.
What kind of line is reasonable for me to start out learning with? Weight forward, but floating or intermediate? I have been told that floating might be easier, and I can see myself hanging around the bay or beach and not trying too much in deeper water.
What's the difference between lines that have the same general specs and those that cost 200 or 300% more?
Tying Clousers is very rewarding. My first one is drying and not terribly ugly. Maybe I can learn to post pics, too.

Nice to see you back in action and looking forward to bumping into you this year Blaze. :wave: For many years my backyard and the Cuz's backyard were in casting range of each other. :hihi: It's been a while, but I think I recognize the reeds in question:lecture:
Hope the family is thriving.

A weight forward intermediate is the best all around line for the shore angler. A floater would be ok but in the surf the intermediate will stay under the water a bit more and it casts a little better in the wind.

As to lines, I never found a huge difference in the name brand lines, but always stayed away from the real cheap $30 type lines
