A small pond near me had 41 trucks parked on the road. It is only a 14 acre pond. I saw six boats, canoes and kayaks. It looked like a mini-marina. This is my reason for missing the opener. It is fine to fish like this, but I don't. Plop, Spish, Splash, Wizzz-Plop, and Krpunk. Think the fish feel like they are getting bombed.

Till our trails cross,

HAHAHAHA

I never that of it that way....I guess the fish do feel like they are being bombed.

"INCOMING!!!"

I know what you mean, I missed the opener unintentionally. I like to go with the family down the street. Its a good way to share a day. Couldnt make it today though.

I may go out later...

Have a good one and good luck when you get out there!---Matt

Saw plenty of trucks up at flatbrook... but not as many as I expected. On my way up there I had to cross the south branch of the raritan, pequest, and the paulinskill. All were running really high and muddy. FB wasn't that bad though... but the fishing was horrible. I'm not sure if it was the late stocking and the fish were spooked or what, but I was one of maybe ten guys I saw that caught fish... and thats out of atleast 50. I got four so I'm happy.:D

I'll be going after dark. Black Panther Martin on 4# test. Crappie and trout, guranteed. It's nice out, so I'll run a couple of beagles till dark. Rabbits are rutting and the bucks stink, so the dogs will get some good running in.

Till our trails cross,
Ryan

Not many guys at the Hacky in Old Tappan. I took my daughter down for a look around 10.30am and saw one old guy leaving. Said no one caught anything and I told him that the place was flooded beyone belief last week. I hope to go next week after the second round of stockings as I think the fish are washed away at this point. Nice day though...

Ryan, I went by two stocked lakes in my area, they were mobbed. I didn't count the trucks, but the parking area's were a mess, and cars parked up and down the street for more than 1/4 mile. There was NO room on the bank, and way too many boats on those little lakes. There were people waiting up near the road...I guess for someone to leave so they could get a piece of the bank to fish from. My kids were really dissapointed, but there was no way we could fish those spots.

The river was just as crowded and no one was catching anything...way too high and fast. Banks were shoulder to shoulder because no one could wade...too deep.
