Has anyone fished Lake Surprise in Mountainside NJ? Any thoughts on what kind of lures to use there ?
post #2 of 9
Fish it all the time, hope to get there tomorrow.
Have always had luck with top waters, spinners (inline for the trout in the pond)

Have also had good luck with trout magnets for the pan fish.

Gulp! worms work well also.

Feel free to pm me if you have aby other questions.

There's bass in there and I think they still stock it with trout, right? It's ok. Good for a lunch time quick-fix...

Seely's Pond is stocked with trout and has some panfish and bass. It also has a lot of carp. It's not a great pond because it gets so warm in the summer and gets swampy. All the trout will go belly-up in June from the heat.

Surprise Lake is nice. Some big fish in there including bass, pickerel and channel cats. Also has panfish. Better get there before the lilly pads grow, because it'll become hard to fish when the lake is covered with them.

Surprise Lake also gets warm in the summer and the fish get really sluggish in the heat, so get there early in the morning.

Blue Brook which feeds into Seeley's opposite end from damn.
Has a good number of trout, pickerel, LMB and panfish.
Pulled a bunch out yesterday, small but fun on UL with 2 pound line.

Also some trout below the damn, depending on water flow.

Spinners work well in pond for trout.
