    Gave my son a new fishing pole for his birthday. With how beautiful it was out today we took a ride to the Flat Brook and had some fun. He got his 1st fish on his new rod. The smile says it all. He kept telling me how excited and happy he was. Another guy on the river saw it happen and yelled over to him saying “great job kid”! It was awesome.

    WOW, what a morning.......after launching yesterday afternoon for a couple of hours, with only a bunch of short bass landed...I launched this morning to a closer spot to the middle of the bay..... GREAT CHOICE !!! Me and a friend launched just about sun up and made the 45 minute trip to where I wanted to be............Once we got into the "zone"...it was a non stop hook up with quality sized bass..........after getting through a bunch of keeper sized bass and bigger....I found an area where there were some larger fish. Total count for me for the morning was 25 bass.........but I am sure that the biggest 5 were the biggest bass that I have landed on lures.....I have landed bigger with live bunker....but this was a morning to remember !!

    The back story... My previous truck was a 2014 Tacoma TRD Sport with a 6 spd manual. Unfortunately due to a moronic girl who decided to run a red light, my truck was destroyed; I hit her doing 50 mph. Fortunately I walked away without a scratch on me. And thanks to Tacoma's holding their resale value, insurance gave me a really nice check for it. Once I was told the amount of money I was getting, I ordered a new one from Gateway Toyota. I've dealt with them in the past and as always, they're awesome to do business with. They custom ordered my truck for me since we couldn't find it anywhere remotely close. I got a call a few days ago saying that it came in and went yesterday to pick her up. So here's the new ride. 2020 Tacoma TRD Sport with a 6 spd manual in voodoo blue.

    My stepson found the shed on the left on the field edge at baseball practice this week. I went out this afternoon and found the one on the right about 3.5 miles away. They are a spot match +\- a few years of maturity.

    Split right down the middle - 6.5 each. Just got the deerage.com results back from Wildlife Analytical Laboratories. Fall bow 9/17 and Permit Bow 11/11. I am smart enough to know, I will never have a bow season like that again. I was off by a year on the velvet 10 - thought he was 5.5 but 1 year either way would not have shocked me. The other one -4,5, 6, 10 - no real clue but gun to my head probably would have said 6.5. I just want to say thanks to "the academy", to my Dad for getting me into hunting (RIP), my Mom, Holly for letting me hunt when I want (not always without some guilt or grief), Jesus, God, P&Y club, Matthews bows, Trophy Ridge sights, True Fire releases, Swhacker BH's, Cabelas Stalker Extreme arrows, scent lok ozone bags, Scent Killer Gold spray, Lacrosse boots, Kamuk boots, Duluth underwear, Colgate toothpaste, Ibuprofin, protonics, Viagra, Ketel One Vodka, Blue Point Toasted Lager, Yuengling, Ford trucks, Can Am Quads, Jersey Jay's Taxidermy, Noon Taxidermy, NJW&W, and all my friends that motivate me to hunt and I have learned a thing or two from. Special thanks to @nmc02 for "not hunting" the giant 10 on his camera and burning his days off tuna fishing instead, @Haskell_Hunter , @JerseyJaysTaxidermy, @LPJR, @MGHunter66; @BowhunterNJ, @Live to Hunt, @3Blade, @Bucksnbows, @TroutandBucks, @Tarhunt and last but NOT LEAST the best outdoorsman I EVER MET (hunting fishing trapping) @Buck154 Links to the harvests: 9/17/2019 velvet 10 - 11/11/2019 giant 10 -

    So I voted for Mr. Trump because I couldn't stand Hillary and wanted conservative minded supreme court judges . It didn't take long to for me to realize that I made the right choice . This man is incredible ! His energy level is off the charts, he never gets tired and thrives on challenges . I just watched the latest news conference, nobody I can think of would be doing the job he is doing , nobody. And the sick left wing Democratic Media is looking more disgusting every day ! They really look silly at best. IS THERE ANYONE HERE THAT THINKS JOE BIDEN WOULD BE DOING A BETTER JOB? Instead of saying he never gets tired I should have said his stamina and endurance are incredible, like a long distance runner!

    Although he doesn't get his permit until this fall, we picked up the pickup my son has been looking at for awhile today. Used Ford F350 King Ranch Lariat edition. Super Duty, Power Stroke diesel with the 6.0 turbo. Got it for a good deal and could not pass it up. 2 prior owners kept the truck in immaculate condition inside and out and the truck rides awesome. We will be driving it until my son gets his permit and license and I was joking with him that he may not get it haha! Jr is already is planning on loading it up with his YZ and a buddy's bike next weekend to head to Englishtown to ride. Some pics below.

    He was an old buck ( 8.5 at least) that was on my radar since 2014. I plan on making a plaque to put him on similar to the one below. *Link to the hunt attached below* https://www.njwoodsandwater.com/forums/topic/35176-the-old-buck-is-down/?_fromLogin=1

    My taxidermist in PA texted me pics today of my aoudad mount. I got him last January in southwest Texas 30 miles from the Mexican border. One of the funnest hunts I’ve ever been on. Can’t wait to get it home. I just need to wait until the governors let us leave our house.

    Guns and ammunition are now deemed essential by the Federal Government. There have been two lawsuits filed and multiple complaints made locally. Myself included. Governor Murphy has backed down. This is a small victory for gun owners in New Jersey. https://www.nj.com/coronavirus/2020/03/gun-shops-are-now-considered-essential-businesses-in-nj-gov-murphy-says.html Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    I tried the Delaware from shore Friday night in amazing weather but got skunked - just N of rt 80. Was going to meet @Buck154 way South (over 70 miles) yesterday with my son and we take two boats. My son bailed based on the weather and Buck154 was going solo so we decided to just use my 15’ Polar Craft. I thought we would get a break in the rain but we really did not. It was mid-40’s and raw and rained over 90% of the time. Wish I listened to John and out my rain pants on. We maintained safe social distancing and had hand sanitizer on board. It sure beat sitting at home. 10:30 to 12, only 2 Shad. Then decent action after a move boating 16 more for a total of 18 between 12 and 2:30. Then despite several moves not another hit and we got off river by 4:30. Long but fun day on the river. All fish caught on the smaller size spoons behind hookless crank baits or little John divers. Water temps about 48-49. We got 4 roe out of the 18 - one barely broke 5# but all were great drag ripping fighters and many great leapers. In spite of catching a trillion Shad in 45 years these were my first ever in March. Closet I ever came was April first. Mainly I don’t bother in March plenty to come further north April and May in nicer weather. But had an itch that needed to be scratched ! Man did a hot shower and roaring fire feel good when I got home.

    Today was actually the first Saturday in a long time where we never left the property once. Rec sports are cancelled, no birthday parties, no trips to the store, etc... Cleared a bunch of brush today-that wall was part of an old chicken house that I have pictures of. The cherry tree fell during our first winter here and I just lopped it off at the fence line. Anyway, it's been pretty nice-just the woman and the kids and the dogs and me... Not looking forward to going back into the suck on Monday.

    I figured after seeing all sorts of threads about trucks, boats, politics, COVID discussions and even at home projects we should have a thread with fun stuff that you have done with your kids during this stay at home order. I have gotten a few projects done around the house but it’s the fun stuff with the kids that helps me keep my mind off all of the negative stuff. Last night my older son and I camped indoors. We setup a beach tent and I dragged his mattress downstairs (no way I was sleeping on the floor lol). His new favorite thing to watch is wrestling so we watched Monday Night RAW on the tv and he also had Angry Birds 2 going on the Ipad. Snack of choice was BBQ chips and chocolate milk!! It was something different but we had a blast. Looks like tonight we are “camping” again but upstairs this time lol.

    Took my son and his future truck to the Big Flatbrook tonight for it's first ride up to Walpack with Mike (TroutandBucks) following us up. Lots of fun, but I learned that I still have no patience for fly fishing...Maybe 1 day when I retire in a couple of years....Maybe. Jr was the high hook, landing and releasing over 14 nice rainbows, including a good one on a Panther Martin. Took some cool pics, attached below. Mike caught some trees that "came out of nowhere" in the blink of an eye, then started to hit them. He actually caught his 1st ever double on a dropper before taking a nice chilly swim. Usually it is me that takes a surprise bath, but just yesterday I installed machine screws in my wader shoes for better traction. All good stuff.

    Today is my son’s 5th birthday! Crazy how fast time goes by! Unfortunately we had to cancel his birthday party because of everything that’s going on and he was pretty upset. So we told him we would go out and get him the rc car he kept saying he wanted. We took a ride over to the hobby store last Saturday and let him pick one out. He picked out the Traxxas Stampede. Traxxas are awesome because you can put it into learning mode which makes it go a max of 10 mph so that he can’t destroy it. On top of that he also got his 1st real fishing pole so that we can go out fishing together this year. We supported another local small business during these hards times. This small business called Dashssweetbatches was selling cookie decorating kits. Figured it would be a fun activity. Made quite a mess but he had a blast.

    Headed to a stretch of river I spent my last trip to with my dad . Havent been back since he passed away. Lots of fresh stocked fish in the pool. And was having a blast catching cookie cutter rainbows from 9 to 13". Releasing everything . Had over 2 dozen. Saw this fish swirl above the pool twice chasing other fish. Second cast she slammed the Blue fox and the fight was on .. Was tricky landing her without a net ,took two times of getting my hand under her belly to land her . Wanted to snap a pic and release her but as I moved my phone I ended up gilling her . Weighed and measured when I got home 23" 5# 2 oz. Fish was as orange as salmon inside .

    I’ve wanted an O/U for trap/clays. After going and handling/shooting a few different ones I decided to go with Beretta. I got the Beretta 690 Black Sporting Edition in 12ga with 30” barrels. Can’t wait to go and shoot.

    We decided to try the famous Green River in the town of Dutch John, Utah this weekend and practice some “social distancing”. . Views were incredible. Fishing was tough as these fish can be real spooky and finicky at times. Enjoy the pics....

    After 2 not so great trips in the Bay, yesterday made up for it. I launched at first light to a steady 10-15 mph wind with the wind coming with the incoming tide. It was hard to get any action with my lures against the tide, but as soon as I was in the zone and started trolling with the wind and tide, it was pretty much non stop action for the next couple of hours...... I wound up landing about 20 stripers, with half being in the 30 to 34 inch range and the rest in the 26 to 30 inch range........all released and headed in through a steady rain and nasty chop.. It was great seeing and meeting up with a fellow member....Capecod......on the water this past week...I am sure we will meet up again !! Danny V

    This picture really moved me today. We must pray for this man. I can't imagine the pressure he endures every day trying to do his best for us. He is attacked in a coordinated manner by the media, establishment politicians , foreign adversaries and the Deep State Bureaucrats. Now this biological "attack" conveniently in an election year. To quote Abraham Lincoln "We can't spare this man , he Fights!"

    As many of you know I spend several weeks of March here in Costa Rica, but this year it seems it will be several months. My flight home has been cancelled and my choices are to take a flight a week later with 3-4 stops costing me 3 times my original cost or wait til May 5th. Since I’m staying in a small fishing village, my only true exposure is to my boat captain whose other charters already cancelled. It’s a no brainer for me since as the world as we know it is falling apart, I’m down here having the best time I’ve ever had here. Now dontcha all feel sorry for me ? lol

    Whiskey contains female hormones! Yes, that's right, FEMALE hormones! Montreal University scientists revealed this. Men should take a concerned look at their Whiskey consumption. The theory is that Whiskey contains female hormones (hops contain phytoestrogens) and that by drinking enough Whiskey men turn into women. To test the theory, 100 men each drank 8 cups of Whiskey each within a one hour period. It was then observed that 100% of the test subjects, yes, 100% of all these men: 1) Argued over nothing. 2) Refused to apologize when obviously wrong. 3) Gained weight. 4) Talked excessively without making sense. 5) Became overly emotional . 6) Couldn't drive. 7) Failed to think rationally ; and 8) Had to sit down while urinating. No further testing was considered necessary! Drink only Beers 🍺🍺🍺 Cheers...
