  1. Nice mixed bag! Always like seeing tigers! Sweet wild brookie too.
  2. Also there are wild brookies in many of the stocked streams including the upper SBR, Musky, Flatbrook and many of the mid-sized stocked streams.

    Definitely one of my 'go-to' spots for chow in the area! 'Course I also order from Candy's Pizza a lot, and for variety it's the Chinese Buffet we 'affectionately' refer to as the 'Missing Kitten Buffet' on Rt. 6 outside of Milford.
  4. If you'll have any left I'd like to stop by for a small load next weekend, whichever day is better for you. I only have a short bed pickup so I won't put much of a dent in your pile.
  5. If those 20ga Fusions were 2 3/4 I be all over them. Anybody have any of those they'd like to part with?
  6. I'm wondering if anyone has heard any updates on the status of the lawsuit(s) filed regarding this matter. Anyone?
  7. Headed up this coming Sat night for our annual week long trip. Hit town Sun morn and take our time getting checked into the B&B, having some breakfast, etc, then on the water for the late afternoon/evening time. Fish Sun evening through the following Fri midday. After that the Columbus Day weekend madness sets in and we are OUT! As for the DSR I absolutely refuse to pay them a dime. A fat cat politician getting an even fatter wallet from a public resource that was established and is sustained by the license monies of the general angling public. Not my cup of tea. Plenty of other miles of river to fish w/o battling the maddening crowds, ya just gotta not mind taking a hike.
  8. You have to remember that the DEP is run by a governor's appointee. Yes, DF&W is a DEP division but they (F&W) are under the control to a large extent of the DEP. We need to get the Div. removed from the 'umbrella' of the DEP and re-instated as a separate, autonomous entity without the political pressures of the DEP and governor looming over their heads. This would however require an act of the state legislature which obviously isn't going to happen unless and until we have a republican controlled legislature. Good luck getting that accomplished in this blue state.
  9. Log cabin has gone downhill since the new owners took over, food and clientele. The bikers still meet there on weekends though. Maybe BHC would like to go over there on Sunday and tell them all how they are nothing but hillbillies and white trash.  The Log Cabin has had one of the best pies in NJ for a long time! I've been wondering how the place was doing since Linda sold it. She told me she included her dough recipe, yeast stock, and pie ingredients list with the sale to the new owners so they could maintain the taste and quality of the pizza. I guess they (the new folks) thought they could improve on her long-standing successful pies and business plan. Damn shame, now I'll have to visit her at home to get a decent pizza, and it's a looong drive from here to Hackettestown!! That aside should you ever happen to find yourself in Ocean City, NJ stop in to Piccini's. Wood fired brick oven pizzas at their finest! I suggest the jumbo lump crab marguerita pie!
  10. SBR at the lower end of the KLG is at 186cfs and dropping as of 10:45 tonight. You should be fine for tomorrow, just spring-like stream conditions without the cold water temps. The gauge... https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nj/nwis/uv/?site_no=01396500&PARAmeter_cd=00065,00060,62614
  11. Taylors is okay, had a seasonal site there for nearly 20 years after the Coppermine closed. Finally left there in '03 for a place closer to home and the shore. The Lakota Wolf Preserve is definitely cool, the owners are friends of mine and damn good folks if I do say so myself.
  12. Check out this site... https://www.yelp.com/search?cflt=campgrounds&find_loc=Walpack+Township%2C+NJ I'd definitely look into the Bear Creek Campground. This is the former Walpack Valley campground, and it was Mrs. B's before that. They have tent sites right beside the Flatbrook, you can drink there, and there are a good number of waterfalls and other scenic locations within a short distance including areas just across the river in PA. Edit, avoid the state campgrounds. No alcohol allowed!!
  13. We had one similar in Montague last year. Only difference was his tail was all red rather than mottled like your pic. Very cool any way you cut it!

    What kind of tree?

    Hell yes they stink!! There was a gingko biloba tree in the playground of my first elementary school. Throwing those horrific smelling half rotted gobs at other kids was a way of life for us! When they turn a shade of orange you'll know they're just about ripe!
