Thread: a 100 fish day!

  1. Default a 100 fish day!

    I actually caught 100 fish today with my flyrod! 98 chubs, 1 sunfish, and 1 brown trout.
    95 of the chubs were below 4". The sunfish was 3" and the brownie was the biggest by far....... 8"!
    We still have super shallow water here, and the state won't restock for another 4 weeks. The "bait boys" killed 98% of the trout and the hot shallow water killed another 1%. I wade miles and try for the remaining 1% of the trout that are still there. Really, it's just being in nature and casting my light rod with my hometied flies. In the couple miles I waded, I think I saw another small trout, but it might have been a sucker.
    I still had a great time today, but I really wish I had a 0 wt! With a 0wt the 3" minnows would put up a nice fight! LOL
    For fishing, this is what's available. If not the trout streams, I would have to try for sickly catfish and dying carp in the polluted Susquehanna.
    My choice was to walk way offroad in the beautiful, 6" deep, tiny creek and use tiny flies to catch tiny fish!
    McFly....... these fish look like the little guys you catch when the water is almost dried up!
    I'm tying a lot of saltwater streamers for October to Jan when the stripers migrate down the Jersey coast. That is a long way off and I still like to flyfish once in a while.
    Flyfishing is what I do, so I make the best of it.

    These are the two biggest today:

    Dang FlyRichardFly you are a dedicated fisherman! I feel for you.
    Not sure what I would do if the fishing conditions were that bad around here. I guess I'm kind of blessed living in the Rockies, just so much fishing and too little time!

    You definately deserve a fishing trip out west!

    Sandfly,

    Island Beach State Park is my fav place to flyfish from the surf. From late Oct to the end of Jan, the stripers hug the shore there and can be caught with a flyrod!
    Two years ago it was "Nirvana" and this past year was a little slow, but I'm thinkin' this fall run will be spectacular!
    We'll have to hookup at IBSP when the migration starts. A couple months away, but I'll keep ya posted.

    These pix are at IBSP in Jan 06':

    A friend and I went to Pa, yesterday. Often times the chubs (I own the chubs) help avoid catching the "skunk".
    I was lucky enough to catch 8 rainbows. All stocked fish. Please excuse the lousy pic. I was in a hurry to get him back in the water.
