  1. Cooked up my first batch of corn meal bait for this year this afternoon, then caught 19 lb, 14.5 lb and 2 lb carp in Carnage Lake this evening.
  2. Gave it to a guy who knows somebody who makes snapper soup. I don't know if he released it or made soup. A few years ago I gave a snapping turtle to a Chinese restaurant that made a clear broth with delicious white meat in it. I thought that it was chicken soup but they said it was my turtle.
  3. > 20 year old mono. Got really lucky to land it. Got water in my knee boot while landing it.
  4. Caught a 32 lber on 4 lb test Saturday evening with a 1/32 oz jig on 4 lb test in a small pond in Yardville, NJ. It bent the hook but did not escape.
  5. I have 2 for $30 at https://cnj.craigslist.org/spo/d/canoe-paddle/6836867298.html
  6. Most of the snows left South Jersey. Saw a few on the Forsythe Refuge last week. Few are on Delaware Bay. If they are to the south of NJ, it may improve. Lots of WMAs at Delaware Bay but you need a boat to hunt them.
  7. Went snow goose hunting at the Delaware Bayshore yesterday afternoon on the incoming high tide. Put out one decoy, then called a flock of four into shooting range with my old wood Faulk's CH-44. Dropped one into the bay, then the other 3 flew higher and circled back to check their buddy. I was able to wade out into the bay and retrieve my 6.6 lb adult male greater snow goose that had a stained face. Saw more gulls than geese. Got snow geese (nearly 1,500) every season since they became legal to hunt a very long time ago after being protected for 32 years.
  8. Got 22 crows this season in 1 spot, pass shooting in the evenings as they flew to their roost. My 20 cent shotgun shells worked great like my old Olt mouth call and camo headnet. Gave some crows to a pizza parlor owner but he said there wasn't much meat on them and his wife thinks that eating crow is bad luck. Only saw 1 flock yesterday and didn't fire a shot. They may have migrated north with 3 weeks left in the season. The previous season I only shot one crow. //www.crowbusters.com is a great website.
  9. Lots of killies are in salt marsh tidal creeks now. I saw many dead killies in a little dead end ditch after a recent freeze. Winter kills a lot of wildlife.
  10. Got 4 Canada geese while pass shooting in a South Jersey salt marsh during the 2019 NJ Winter Canada Goose Hunting Season. One of a double was very light colored with white markings on the underside of its wings and a white stripe around its neck.
  11. I jump shot 0 brant this year. Of the > 7,000 waterfowl that I shot in NJ the past 52 years, 246 were banded. You sound like a young punk who has no respect for the elderly.
  12. When I returned the next day I didn't see or hear another hunter and managed to get a 12 lb and 6.75 lb Canada goose. The small one was probably a lesser migrant from Canada. My best waterfowling is where there are no hunters.
