View PostI launch my boat by the High School. I go down river by the bridges and fish up steam from there.

 

I can't wait for the mulberry start to form and I can get a few to catch the carp. I thought it was stupid till a friend made me fish for them and they fight awesome and they eat the **** out of mulberries!biggrin.gif

 

Used to fish carp on the Delaware at the boat ramp on Park Street in Bordentown. Big fish... Big fight. There was an old timer (back in the 70's he was old) who fished his own home made stink bait. If he was fishing with hat stuff you didn't stand a chance! Good thing that he knew how to share.

 

This old timer was a legend on Island Beach State Park... I wish I could recall his name!

Went beaverin last night with Vedder, and he found em.

They seem a little cranky since the floods wiped out their dens, I couldn't get a good pic, but the pooch had fun.

The beavers were big and tailfloppin.

It was muddy.

Damn muddy.

Great picture. I doubt I get out till mid April due to the Ice. Then baseball/softball season is really going to cramp down to a few hours on Sunday...
