    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 !!

    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

    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.

    I can tell you how NJH died. I've been closely following it since NJWW hit the Internet. NJWW started because Matt was pissed off that he didn't get to buy NJH and felt slighted over it. So in protest, he started NJWW. He announced it to some folks and a few of us registered. When OSOKILL started banning people, that's when the scales started to tip. I was one of the folks who got a lifetime ban. For trolling. I was mostly trolling OSOKILL with facts, but hey, when progressives are faced with facts the censor people. But it was the banning and the fact that an alternative was available was what killed NJH. I am teaching my classes this semester a few things about business. One of the most important if not THE most important thing about a business is customer service. People have to feel that they are getting something of value from you in order for them to continue being your customer. When they don't feel like they're getting anything of value they will seek out alternatives in the marketplace. Business 101. If you look on NJH or on this site for my historical posts, you'll see that I was saying this years ago right around the time Matt started the site. It's a normal thing that most people will do. If you get shit service, you ain't going back. If you get great service, you may pay more/travel further/etc., but you'll go back because it's a good experience. But there's more to it than just that. People are creatures of habit. Many folks, several who are regular posters here, referred to NJWW as "the snoozer site" refusing to post here. Even as bad as NJH was, they still had a larger audience than NJWW, and folks didn't want to come over here. One of the major reasons for staying over at NJH were post counts and historical posts. There are things known as "switching costs" that prevent people from moving from one company to another. Those were the things that people would lose if they came here. So most people remained on NJH for those reasons. That created a pretty tight audience. But there were three events that tipped the favor to NJWW: Ms. Grit getting banned. This event made everyone on NJH question OSOKILL and his actions. In the beginning most people tolerated it, but you don't mess with Ms. Grit. He did. After that, Ms. Grit said she was never coming back to NJH, and I don't think she has. When Jack got banned. I was already banned at this point so I have no idea why Jack was initially banned. But this was a major event that brought a lot of folks over to NJWW. As we all know, Jack never shuts up. Ever. In the world of forums, this isn't a bad thing. Let's give some credit where credit is due: Jack posts a lot. Jack posts a lot of hunting shit. Jack loves talking about all kinds of hunting shit. Jack likes to stir the pot and get people talking. Jack never shuts up. So when Jack left NJH vowing never to go back, NJH lost a significant poster who people liked interacting with. NJWW First Annual Christmas Party. These forums are largely social but rarely in-person. When folks came out to NJWW's Christmas Party at Pub 199, a tradition that was a NJH tradition, it made the difference. People could match screen names with faces, laugh, trade stories, and really bond with one another. I know personally that after I attended that event, there are at least 15 guys on this site that I know personally and see in-person a few times a year. Now the NJWW Christmas Party is a solid annual tradition. New faces, same faces, always a lot of laughter. We get folks traveling 3 hours one-way to attend. It takes the "social" aspect of the site and makes it Pro Staff (heh...). There are other events along the way that made a difference. Jay getting banned, creating a new account, spamming the site, getting banned again, rinse repeat until they blocked his IP address. Just another log on the fire of bad customer service. I don't think anyone was immune to the crappy treatment the site admins dished out. So here we are. The "snoozer site". NJWW. It is the culmination of the contributions of everyone on this site. Some better than others, but this site is good because of the people posting here. You may not agree with all of it and may be annoyed by some of it. But such is life. We are a diverse community and our mods have the thankless job of deciding what stays and what goes. They will never satisfy everyone, and that shouldn't be what they're measured against. They must used a balanced approach to keep us all in line, and they'll never do it right. But they do it, and for the most part it's working. That's what will keep this site going and prevent it from becoming like NJH. My $0.02.

    NJ local trout rivers and streams are seeing early hatches this year given the mild winter. I have fished the Flatbrook, Musconetcong and South Branch Raritan often the last couple of weeks, so I have paid close attention to our hatches. The South Branch always sees the first Hendrickson hatches before the other rivers, and this year was no exception. That hatch continues from anywhere from 1pm until maybe 5pm with spinner falls in the late evenings on calmer nights. We are also seeing Hendricksons now on all major rivers. Sometimes, despite the larger Hendricksons being on the water, the trout become selective to our size 18 Blue Quills (Paraleps). This was the case for me yesterday during a very solid Grannom caddis hatch when the holdovers I was fishing for on an un-stocked section of the Musky when all they wanted was the blue quill duns. And we still have some egg-laying little black and little brown stoneflies on the water throughout the day. As the Grannoms hatch in increasing numbers, don't forget to swing nymphs or patterns like LaFontaine sparkle pupa at the end of your drifts. Bur for yours truly this is the time to focus on fishing afternoons, and fishing dry flies to rising trout. Soon, these hatches will hit all local NY and PA rivers as well if not already, so the best of spring is here and still coming our way. Get out and wave those long fly rods on a river or stream near you!

    Sometime this year, we taxpayers will likely receive another economic stimulus. It is indeed a very exciting program, and I’ll explain it by using a Q&A format Q: What is an Economic Stimulus? A: It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers. Q: Where will the government get this money? A: From taxpayers. Q: Is the government simply giving me back my own money, then? A: No, only a smidgen of it. Q: What is the purpose of this payment? A: The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high definition television set, a new iPad, or a new SUV, thus stimulating the economy. Q: Isn’t that stimulating the economy of China? A: Shut up. Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U. S. Economy with your stimulus check. Use it wisely: * If you spend the stimulus money at Walmart the money will go to China or Sri Lanka. * if you spend it on gasoline, it money will go to the Arabs. * if you purchase a computer, it goes to India, Taiwan or China. * if you purchase fruits and vegetables, it will go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala. * if you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea. * if you purchase useless stuff, it goes to Taiwan. * if you pay your credit card off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore. Instead, keep the money in America by: (1) Spending it at a yard sale, or (2) Going to a ballgame, or (3) Spending it on prostitutes, or (4) Beer, or (5) Tattoos (These are the only American businesses still operating in the U.S.) CONCLUSION: Go to a ballgame with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a yard sale and drink beer all day. No need to thank me, I’m just glad I could be of help.

    Hit the SB on the way home and hooked up with the biggest rainbow of my life, after a 10 minute battle no doubt it's at least a 9 lber . I finally gained some ground and got the net ready and to my surprise it's a Speckled Golden Trout weighing around 7 lbs! Also caught 12 nj wigglers as well

    Matt is involved in the site. The moderators are better even if we sometimes disagree with them from time to time. I mean face it the one mod on njh trolled people to start trouble. We don't have crazy people here stealing money from contests or fake stories about a newspaper getting stolen. For the most part we are all outdoorsman/women and are happy for each others success. Even politics does not stop us from congratulating each other for success in the woods or water. Hell one member here even asked me yesterday WTF was my problem. No big deal. I met the guy on NJH and set up in a spot I had good success and he got his first bow deer. He quit hunting for three years and gave me his ladder stand. Well when he finally came back out this past fall, I gave him back that stand and showed him a spot where he took his first crossbow deer on his first sit. This fall we will be chasing whitetails together again. I failed in helping him kill a good buck last season so going to have to try harder this season. So Rusty, I do not think there is a snowball chance in hell this site will ever resemble NJH. Reason one is matt will not let that happen. He is very involved. And that makes a world of difference.

    If anyone is familiar with Hot Rod's Hot Dogs in Glen Gardner. He teamed up with R&R and they put together these "Grill Packs" for $20.00 a piece to help people out that doesn't want to brave the grocery stores. He's located on Rt.31 in Glen Garner,NJ. It's a great deal to help out the community. It says Hot Rod's on the box because it has to because that's where it's being sold from according to the USDA. He's making Zero profit off this.

    Decided to camo up my turkey barrel. My 870 has the sure shot stock and won't match that, but felt like doing it anywho, and I'll know right away if my sights ever move. Started with base coat of sand then with sponges added layers of olive, earth brown, army green and black. I'll let it dry over night before I put the barrel back in and get a good look at it.

    New crossbow arrived yesterday so hit up my club this morning to sight it in. This thing shoots incredibly fast and is reasonably quiet. Last pic is two bolts shot at 60yrds one field point and the other a grim reaper practice head. Gonna do another sight in soon as with today's showers and wind I didnt fine tune it yet just wanted to familiarize myself with it today. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Some of my NJW&W friends were asking about it, so I'll post here. She had the operation today - we just got home and she is resting right now. A little groggy from the anesthesia and some discomfort but overall she's OK. I was not allowed in the building (corona precautions), so I literally had to drop her off at the curb this morning, and then went back and picked her up at the same curb this evening. So she had to go through it all by herself, but she handled it like a trooper. Doctor said he was very happy with the results. Only had to take out two lymph nodes (which I think is a good thing). We'll know the test results from those lymph nodes by the time she has her follow up appointment. Other tests show she is not "triple-negative" which I've learned is a good thing. She was told she will need radiation but NOT chemo, just some "hormone therapy" for the next several years. That's all I know; I plan on asking a lot of questions about what all this means at the follow up visit next week. I think, all things considered (it IS cancer, after all), it seems to be one of the best prognoses we could have wished for. Thanks for the prayers! (Now maybe I can allow myself to look forward to some turkey hunting in a couple weeks!)

    Dragthor selling out.$$Texas firm?.. banning Ms. grit and jay?I knew j since he was knee-high to a grasshopper, osokill shot himself in the foot! The wisner clan has a lot of clout. The difference between the two sites for me? Owners and mods. I was never to a get together on njh. Did they have them? To speak with a representative press 1. Please hold. When I first joined New Jersey Woods and Water I had reservations, will it last?as long as Matty has something to say about it it will.I know now You're damn right it will!..why? Because it's New Jersey owned and staying that way.I can't say enough about the good times I've had in my later years in this journey to personally meet some great people from this site.❤️

    Not trying to start anything but seeing a lot of catch and release photos of fish in the dirt, two hand grip, etc. we should be more careful. Trout are delicate fish- no reason to stress them more than catching them lol.

    I think the down fall of NJh had to do with owners that only cared about money and not about its members or hunting. The greatest hit was when contributing members started getting banned. Jersey jay higuy and I think miss grit was the nail in the coffin that sent the majority here where knowledge can be past on. Not to mention some of the members banned over there are the ones that run the contests again mis gritt with the youth contest. I know a lot of people make remarks of some threads that it's getting very nj hunter but to be honest I dont think that was the down fall at all. Life would be boring if we all had the same views, I believe even personal attacks that happen are soon forgotten and in the end we all have the same interests hunting and fishing.

    I go to Stockton University and in my wildlife management class we have to make a survey about management options and focus on a group of people. I focused on hunters and wanted to see their opinions on some of the current regulations. I put the link to my 12 question survey at the end of this post. You will need to know your regulation set number, but the rest of the questions can be answered with general knowledge. Thank you in advance. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeMqyr2uAxTqHo6ehi4WhVRKVTywiv1ARThPZTDYPyU9ete1w/viewform?usp=sf_link
