Good day on the ice this morning in the rain. Plenty of bass and pickerel to go around.
Easily 30+ flags on the day.

Northern NJ

It's a small lake in a private community up in a mountain valley. One of the first to freeze over and stays frozen throughout the season.

We had a legit 5-6" of ice today.

We fished it on 12/26/16 and had around the same ice levels.

Nice JB...As always!! Started 2017 off right hit some rocks on 1/1 and managed 4 lil guys about 16in or so and dropped 1 by the rocks that might have stretched to 20in all on a white Zoom paddle tail on a 1/2 jighead...Happy New Year boys here's to a great season in 17!!!

Didn't post as much as I have in the past on here in 16..spent most of my time chasing after my 1 year old lil man LOL..Hope to have more time in 17 to fish and post!!

Is there a link handy to get my new NJ saltwater license?

I would still like to get to the beach and try to harass the shorts. Are there any flounder in the Barnegat bay these days?
