Comment: there is no one ever said where they are. but how GREAT they are. So The are in Farrington lake, Assunpink Lake, Granberry lake, ,Lake Hopatcong. Stock in to Round valley reservoir, in D&R canal. Specifying exact place - these fish constantly moving around so you need to cham for them. Use oatmeal, and plain bread crumbs. hooks # 10, 12,14,16 ... 4lb line. (i use 2lb) tiny shy bait floats from Thill.

Comment: If you are a New England angler, you must have gold lures on hand. This species is probably the number 1 forage for northern predators.

Comment: Traditionally sold as bait (for bass, pickerel, pike, etc.), they CAN be caught on rod & reel, and with an ultralight or a fly rod, they're fun to catch, especially if you can find an area where 'big' [6" or more] ones are present.

When I was a kid, I grew up along the Sudbury River, in Framingham; my friends and I often caught golden shiners while fishing (mostly with worms or small doughballs) for, really ANYTHING, that happened to bite our line. Some of those shiners were 7-8" long. Had we been older & wiser, we would've put one on a big hook, with a bobber, and thrown it out there for a big bass or hungry pickerel, but what i I know then - I was just a kid!
