Week away for the 29th Anniversary with the wife. Spent Friday and Saturday in Lyndhurst. Went to Medieval Times for dinner with some friends and then, on Sunday, headed to Lake Absegami. Checked in and went to the cabin 1. Pretty cool location and the area is beautiful. Since I didn't have the canoe or kayak with me, I was limited to fishing from shore. Cabin 1 has a very weedy water front. If you go here to a cabin with shore fishing in mind get closer to cabin 6. During the normal season (Memorial day to Labor Day) there are boat rentals available. And if I had more time and knowledge I heard there were other rental places in the area, but didn't find out in time to make use of it. Caught a few small pickerel from the dam and from the area around cabin 6, but nothing else. One day we ventured out to find another place. We ended up on the road between the two dams at the lower end of Harrisville Pond/Lake. Caught nothing there either, but now that I am a little more familiar with the area and picked up some NJ F&W information I will by able to get around better. Southern NJ is an amazingly beautiful part of THE GARDEN STATE.
I will update the trip info as more comes to mind.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
