Hey fellas - I live down south, but I'm going to be in Burlington County this weekend and want to try to get a little fishing done. Can someone point out a good spot to do some fishing? I won't have a lot of time, so I want to keep it in Burlington county or very close. I'm leaving the boat at home so I'll be fishing from the shore/peer/bridge.

Thanks for your tips!

Thanks JerseyJim.

I just found Smithville Park on the internet.

What should I expect to catch there? Is there something better?

Down here, I usually fish for B [no swearing please] and Catfish. I wouldn't mind picking up my first Muskie while I was in NJ though... :)

Hey 35Whelan, Thanks for the welcome and the info. The Sea Hunter looks like a fun trip, but I'm looking for something a little closer and can't spend all day fishing (I wish I could though...)

How's fishing around Riverton? It's on the Delaware River and only about 15 minutes away from where I'll be.

Thanks Mysticguido. I think I'll check out the Delaware River.

I guess B [no swearing please] and Cat are popular in the river. Any chance I'll find any Muskie? What about Trout?

Again, thanks everyone.

Jfinn, with all the flooding we had you might get luck and get a Musky or Trout. There is a river just north of where you'll be at I don't think they stock it you can try it.It's called the Rancocas River.
