It's really a small pond- i didn't believe there was fish in here. My youngest boy said his friend at school said it had fish, so after mowing the grass...i went. It's half filled with algae, but lots of fishable spots. Caught 5 bass and 2 crappie. Kids have thrown a shopping cart and the base of a basketball hoop into the water. 2 kids were throwing sticks at some geese and their babies, they hit 1 pretty good-they were sneaking around to do it again, so i yelled - yo, your not throwing anything else at the birds! They went into the woods. Then i hear and see rocks being thrown near me, so i said you better knock it off. After 20 minutes i hear and see a nice sized stick come through the trees and land about 10 feet from me. I put my pole down walked into the woods and saw them and said-you realize i'm an off duty police officer...they said what? So i repeated what i said. I then told them to stop with the rock and stick throwing or i'm getting their info and calling their parents. They said ok, and split. They made a few comments, but i let it go at that. Bunch of smartasses. Other than those 2 idiots it was a nice 90 minute fishing trip. 1st time i went fishing this weekend. We went to an all day concert yesterday in camden...cold roses, rival sons, halestorm, pretty reckless, seether, breaking benjamin,
stone temple pilots and slash. It was awesome, we only saw the last 4 bands, but slash kicked ass. Been wanting to see him for 20 years, glad i finally did!

AWESOME! It's smaller than most stores, but is 2 levels. Hunting and guns are upstairs. Autograph line and checkout lines were through the whole store. The checkout line only took 20 minutes...thank god. The fish tank is small, but had about 25 fish in it. There was a waterfall above it. We got close enough to see brian westbrook kevin vandam and the guys from wicked tuna-which was cool. I will post some pictures. Overall experience was excellent, despite the crowd. Got a new hinged jitterbug lure, i have never seen 1, so i had to get it. Got 2 basspro hats, 2 t shirts and a microlite fishing pole, and 2 fleece jackets. 54.00 for all of the stuff. The parking lot is small, we had to go around the block 3 times, they had a sign that said full, but i got out and pointed out to security, that there were 20-25 spaces, so they let us in. Overall, it is an amazing store, can't wait for the crowds to go away and check out the thousands of lures....

kresson lake april 1st 5-645pm

Went to a hidden lake on rt.561-the back trail had no tresspassing signs and 2 huge security cameras....so i drove to kresson lake about 4 miles away. Caught a big pikerel by rt.73, then no bites. There are woods alongside the lake, so i went deep woods to get to the far end of the lake. I trudged through thickets and stickers and when it got real bad, went towards the lake. Found 1 spot that i had maybe a foot of space around to cast out. A few fish charged the lure, but no hook ups. I moved 15 feet to another spot-with about 2 feet of space. I had barely enough room to cast out-had to throw the line over some small limbs to get the lure 25-30 feet across small channel. BAMMMMM! Found the hackpot zone- i could see the boils and then the wakes charging my lure. Caught 3 2pd bass and 6 pikerels in about 35 minutes....i will upload the pictures later-i definitely will not be able to get to this spot unril next spring. It will have summer weeds and be loaded with ticks...but today will be remembered forever!

Went here saturday to scout 2 huge ponds i've seen on my map app....finally found them deep in the woods. Sorry to say there are no fish in either pond. The water is only 3-4 inches deep! The shoreline is totally overgrown with trees and stickers. Found a few spots to cast out, all i got was muck on the hook. There are 3 other ponds here on this side of road, checked them out last year and they also do not have any fish. What a bummer, all that hiking and nothing. The other side of the road has 2 huge ponds, only fished 1 and caught alot of pikerels. Gonna try to fish the other 1 this weekend and see if it has anything going on!

Took my youngest boy with me on a trip to baltimore and wash.dc wednesday and thursday. Before we checked into the hotel in laurel....we went to a bass pro shop store at the arundell mall. What a huge store. We only saw half the store, the fishing side. Wow, what a place and they have a huge tank of fish. They had 5 to 20 pound fish swimming around. Huge largemouth and stripers, gar, catfish, carp and the biggest sunnies i've ever seen. We stayed an hour. Checked into the hotel, went to the goddard space center, fort mchenry and went to see the orioles and angels game. Thursday we went to dc and saw the vietnam,korea,ww2,lincoln memorials. We went to arlington cemetary,drove around the city. We saw the whitehouse, the wash.monument. We had a baseball catch in a field near the reflecting pool with the wash.monument in the background. It was awesome. We paddle boated in the tidal basin to the jefferson memorial. Then we went to see our phillies beat the nationals....what an awesome trip. Didnt do any fishing down there...didnt see many lakes or ponds. So glad we have so many places to fish around here. Got home friday at 1230. I went out today and caught a 1 pond bass, it wasnt a big fish, but it was a fish! I was having withdrawal, but it was cured when i landed that bass.

big pond/lake 200 feet away from the delaware river - 2 miles from the del. mem. bridge. Our 1st time here, 100% access to the water all over this lake. Lots of open water, and small inlets. We had lots of attacks on the lures, and 2 hook ups, but no fish landed. There were 3 big bass jumping out of the water at one end of a canal. They hit the jitterbug and the blue/yellow spinner. We went to delaware and stopped here on the way back home. Only fished for an hour, but we will be back. It's 40 miles from the house, so when we get here, it will be for a few hours. There's also a nice lake 2 miles from here ( no name ) that has huge fish in it, so it will be an all day trip!

Lake worth - berlin/clementon Saturday evening 10/6/2013

We finally decided to go and hunt for the bass that we have never seen in this lake. There are HUGE sunnies here at the deep end of the lake. This used to be a camp/swim club back in the day - there's a cement wall only at this end. We walked through the woods about 500 feet to the shallow end. I got a new lure for this occasion - HEDDON TORPEDO brown crawdad color - Well after 2 casts....we found the bass! There's a few small clumps of reeds and stuff, but no algae - and some lily pad areas and some tall green reeds - we had 9 attacks on the lure, from different spots! Only had 1 hook up, and he fell off on the retrieve. This lure attracts fish but, the hook is small and to close to the little propeller. There's not much room for the fish to bite - get hooked - i'm trying to find a bigger hook that won't affect the lure. We went back today - cut down a few trees and overhanging limbs for more room....and only got 2 hits on the same lure, it was a similar day as yesterday but no action! Oh well, that's fishing!

Staycation day trips around the state

all over the southern half of the state
8/24/2013 - 9/2/2013

Had all last week off - we fished a few local areas and some new spots close to home. Woodbury's stewart lake and we made it down to harrisonville lake - nearby east lake and nearby woodstown lake on wednesday. We went up to asbury park on friday, met dennis and judi from 101.5 radio and got to fish sunset lake. It's a beautiful lake, separated by a road, but lots of spots to fish from. We only got to fish for 30 minutes, so we didn't find where they were hiding. Yesterday we went up to lakewood to watch the blueclaws game and got to fish a few spots at rt.9 and rt.528 - i got a blue gill and a nice pikerel that fell off the line. We drove 5 minutes past the stadium onto oberlin ave and went to a pond behind a lumber company. Only fished here 20 minutes, and didn't get any bites, but we'll be back to get some. Traffic and the thunderstorm severly cut down our fishing time, which was a major bummer.
The game started late and we left in the 7th inning, we had an hour and a half drive home and we won the tickets in asbury park, or we would've stayed til the end.
We passed alot of spots off of rt.70 on the way down, but we'll have to wait til the fall to fish these, there were too many overhanging trees and overgrown weeds.
There are hundred's of ponds and lakes all over this state and we plan to fish as many as we can over the years. After the rain we fished today for an hour at berlin lake, had 12 strikes, only hooked 5 fish, didn't land any! My hooks are debarbed, so we lose some, but it was an action packed hour of fishing!
We had a great week and even though we didn't catch too many fish - we created 1000 memories. Bummed that it's over, but that's life i guess.

Wound up just past rt.295 on rt. 38 in mt. laurel about 1215 today. Big lake in front of a ruby tuesday - couldn't fia there - drove 1 minute into an industrial park - 2 nice lakes - couldn't fish there...no trespassing signs! Crossed back over rt.38 - 2 minutes later we were across from the NFL FILMS bldg. found 2 nice ponds - couldn't fish here - private property and no trespassing signs. Drove 2 more minutes to hartford road and FINALLY found a nice sized lake to fish. Got to fish for an hour and i didn't catch a thing, but Jeremy got 2 nice 1 pound bass, near the lilypads with a spinnerbait. on the way home we saw a new developement they were building and found a new pond in the back - no signs , so we fished for about 20 minutes...no fish. It was a nice day out, found a new place to fish and 6 places we couldn't fish ( bummer ), but it was still an adventure and a beautiful day. Hope to get more fishing in next time we get out this way.

Washington Twp. adventure

in south jersey ( sewell -turnersville area ). We drove 15 minutes to atkinson park, in front of the police station. There's a nice pond/lake there. Fished for an hour, Jeremy got a nice bass ( he didn't save the picture in time on the phone ). We left there and drove 2 minutes to a small pond at the blackwood train station ( from the early 1900's ). To overgrown to fish here, gotta wait til it's cold. We then drove 5 minutes to wash.twp lake park. Found a sign that said cedar pond. We got out and walked to a small pond that said no fishing. There were 53 koi fish swimming around, it's shallow and thetops of the fish were out of the wate. We followed the trail about 500 yards through the woods and found cedar pond. It's small. and there aren't many places to fish from, but the trail that goes around it it wide and clear. Some guy told us about a bigger lake about a qtr. mile from where we were, so we walked 15 minutes and finally found an abandoned park with 3 buildings and a huge pavilion and a huge lake with clear water - no algae or underwater weeds. There were 2 docks, so we walked onto them and Jeremy got a small catfish. We fished here about 30 minutes. You could see your lure 20 feet away, and there wasn't any big fish anywhere. They are in the middle of the lake and we can't cast out to where they're hiding.
It was an awesome time and it was the 1st time we fished any of these spots...we will be going back to all of them. On the way home, we pulled out of the park and 20 seconds later we saw some dude fishing behind some houses off the road we were on!! A niced sized lake that we will fish soon, probably next weekend!

Mt. Laurel pond hopping

mt. laurel,nj
After we went to the new spot in voorhees on sunday, we drove 15 minutes away to a few little ponds in front of and in some neighborhoods along hartford road. Found 3 nice sized ponds - 2 were private and 1 had weeds and tall grass everywhere and probably loaded with ticks.
We did find 4 smallish ponds that we were able to fish. Stayed about 20 minutes at each spot, caught 4 small bass and 2 sunnies. Awesome day out fishing, caught fish at every new spot we found - no big ones, but you can't control what you get on the hook sometimes! Then we got some severe storms that rolled in, don't mind fishing in the rain, but when the lightning starts flashing - it's time to get on home

New spot in voorhees

voorhees,nj
7/28/2013

Heard through the fishing grapevine, about a little pond/lake in voorhees. So, sunday morning we left at 11:15 and drove 20 minutes, into a neighborhood and found the spot. There are 3 areas to fish from - 2 have very limited access to the water, but the 3rd area had 90 % access to the water. It's a long shallow lake connected to a pond. The pond area is awesome, you can get all the way around and get to the otherside where part of the lake is. Water is darkish, but clear and clean. Didn't see any pikerels. Saw tons of small bass, so we know there's a big bubba or 2 somewhere lurking around...and we aim to catch all of them. Don't know if i'm allowed to mention exactly where this is, and there was a sign that said private park except for residents. As we parked a police car drove by while we had our gear out on the trunk, and he just waved...so we grabbed everything and got to fishing. Fished for 90 minutes...we will be back soon!

Night fishing at the vo-tech school lake

berlin,nj
7/19/2013

We left the house 815 friday night, drove 5 minutes to the school. Got the gear and started fishing. Got a few bites on a green plastic grub ( with a 4 inch tail ), but nothing real solid. We walked around the lake a few times and around 930, they started hitting the spinnerbaits. Casted out 20 - 25 feet, and on a medium/slow retrieve...BAM! We hooked 11 and landed 8. All about 1 pound, we didn't get any big ones. JJ brought the flashlight and really helped out holding the light steady while i was unhooking the fish, glad they were all bass, don't think i'd be happy dealing with a big pikerel/pike in poor lighting conditions! Didn't get any pictures - don't have a dig.camera at the moment, dam thing froze up on me 2 months ago. We fished until 1015.
We are going to go there every sat. night. It's on a main road, is well lit up on that side. It is dark near the school, but wide open and clear and a security car drives by every 10 minutes. I don't know how late you can fish here, but the guards have never told us to leave...yet! There's some big fish in here - appears to be only sunnies and bass - no pikerels

Egg Harbor Lake
12/15/2012

JJ and I decided to go about 1100, drove down the white horse pike ( rt.30 ) into egg harbor city. Made a left onto philadelphia ave ( rt.563 ) and drove 4 miles to the lake. About 35 -40 miles from home. There are 2 lakes separated by rt. 563, we chose the left side and fished for 30 minutes. Not 1 bite or swirl to indicate any fish n that area. We walked down the road about 500 feet, saw a little cabin on the shoreline. As we walked up tothe front of the cabin, we startled a few fish, so we knew we found their hiding spots. No bites for 10 minutes or so, then i saw 1 tracking my lure and i hooked him. What a BEAST! I described all the details in the pics i took, so i won't repeat all that here. We are going back again and fish the same spots and the otherside of the lake, if no luck , we can cross the road and fish the other lake. Nice area, lots of shoreline to fish from - not to many people are here ( except for hunters ) after the summer, so the fish are just waiting to be caught. Have fun and good luck if you make it down here. Don't know what other kind of fish are here, just caught pickerel the 2 times i've been here.

winslow twp., and atco,nj
11/10/2012

JJ and I got the gear and drove to Oak Pond in winslow twp. and fished for about 10 minutes. The only spot left to fish from was horrible! Only about 1/2 foot deep and clear -we could see about 35-40 feet away and there wasn't any fish insight. We drove 20 minutes on some back roads and ended up on rt.206, so we went 4 miles to Atsion Lake - which was gated and closed. Across the street is the Mullica River canoe launch. Extremely small area to fish due to trees. We fished there for 20 minutes. No luck at all, the catfish that were there over the summer had probably swam down to Batsto Lake. We started driving home and got on Rt.30/white horse pike, we got into Atco and saw a big lake on left,so we turned in, got a parking spot, and went fishing. We walked up to the shore and immediately saw 5-6 swirls from fish swimming away. We cast out a few times and started getting hits, and hooking some nice chain pickerel. Got them on a worm hooked wacky style, a topwater lure ( jitterbug ) and some spinner baits. Turned out that the lake we never been to before, made the entire adventure worthwhile! 6 Pickerel landed, about 10-12 hooked, only got 6 on the shore! We are trying to find out what the name of this lake is, i've got alot of lists of all the places to fish in NJ, by the counties and this thing isn't listed. I will add the name when i find out what it is. As for me....going back tomorrow to fish the otherside of this lake, it might be the last warm sunday until spring and it's only 20 minutes from my front door. 43 miles round trip today. SUNDAY - went back to ATCO LAKE caught nothing. Same bait as yesterday -only had 1 hit on a spinnerbait - i could see the ripples and swirls of the fish and where they were, but they weren't biting.
