Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: Lake Musconetcong

by Steve Von Brandt

Lake Musconetcong is located in northern New Jersey, between Sussex and Morris counties. It is actually part of Hopetcong State Park, and doesn't receive the notariety of its bigger brother Hopetcong or Greenwood Lake or any of the central Jersey waters. Yet, it is one of the best bass waters in northern New Jersey.












Years ago, this area was just swampland. It was flooded a long time ago to allow coal transporting barges to make their way to New York City along the Morris canal system. Efforts are being made right now, by the Lake Musconetcong Regional Planning Board, to insure that nature does not reclaim the land as a swamp. Their goal is to preserve the lake's recreational capabilities, bass fishing being one of them. They dredge the lake each year and perform weed harvesting. Even so, in the late spring, the weed growth in Musconetcong is very heavy. Thick mats of vegetation grow almost to the surface in most of the lake, and there are large boulders mixed in this, which makes fishing with a bass boat hard to say the least. More than one trolling shaft and outboard prop have been broken here.




You won't see a lot of boaters, anglers, and water skiers here. The lake does not receive the publicity the other lakes do. In fact, even in the spring and summer on weekends, surprisingly few people will be on the water at any one time. The lake is open to the public and has a good launching ramp. It is located right in the town of Netcong. It is a beautiful 329 acre lake loaded with a variety of cover and some real nice bass.

There are reasons for the lack of traffic on Musconetcong. For one, it is pretty shallow. It's average depth is about 4 feet, with the deepest water being only 6 feet. Since the bottom of the lake gets a lot of sunlight, there is tremendous weed growth. In fact, this lake is probably the 'weediest' you'll see in this region.

The shallow water also allows for rapid warming and cooling of the water compared to deeper lakes, so Musconetcong is usually a few weeks ahead of the other lakes in its seasonal warming and cooling. The daily temperature changes are more pronounced.

For the bass, this is an ideal habitat. There is a lot of food and cover to hide in. The bass we catch in Musconetcong are usually about 2 1/2 to 3 pounds on average, and some much bigger have been taken. It is not unusual at all to catch 8-10 bass in the 3 pound range, and one 5 pounds or over on a good day. Last year, we even took a 6 1/4 pounder from here.





LURES AND EQUIPMENT:

You should have plenty of weedless lures at Musconetcong. Tournament frogs, Bass Rats, Top-Props, and weedless spoons, along with Senkos and worms rigged Texas style are a must. There are some open pockets where you can cast some buzzbaits early in the year, but they disappear quickly as the water starts to warm. Most of the time, we rig the plastics without any weight, as the grass is just too thick. It is actually counterproductive because the water is only 4-5 feet deep. We like to use a spinning rod in 6 - 6 1/2 foot lengths in medium actions and a 6-8 pound test Stren line. In the baitcasters, we use a 7', med/hvy action rod, such as a G. Loomis Crankin' Stick and a Shimano Chronarch, spooled with 20-25 pound test Stren or Spiderline.



LOCATIONS:

The best areas to work these lures is the edges of the lily pads, right in with the frogs and rats, and the edges of the thick slop and mats of grass that accumulate on the surface. If you get there early in the year, you can learn where all the boulders and underwater objects are, which will aid your boating and fishing later. It is also worth searching the small drop-offs or depressions, many of which are right in the middle of the heavy grass. These areas will concentrate the fish, and at times we catch several from a small area before moving on.

Two areas that are really good are the edges of one small island, and the length of the tow path used by the old barge system. If you picture a line drawn from the public ramp to the far side, passing through a point about midway between the island and the right hand shore, you'll have a good idea of where it is.



Some other good baits to try in Musconetcong are soft plastic jerk baits like a Zoom, or Fin_S-Shad, or Sluggos and Bass Assassins. All in all, Musconetcong is a good time lake for all. Hopefully, it will be there for many years to come. Practice catch, photo, and release and you can assure the future of fishing and Lake Musconetcong for everyone.

Report Description: The days most anglers wait for arrived last week in Ixtapa Zihuatanejo. With Large schools of bait present the SAILFISH showed up in big numbers. In total our fleet ran 58 offshore charters, landing 203 SAILFISH. Equally impressive was the number of SAILFISH that were teased to the fly but not hooked and landed. That number would have taken the opportunities at SAILFISH well over the 500 mark. Leading the charge was returning anglers Ray & son Darren along with friend Mike Visocki who managed to land 35 SAILS and 3 DORADO in 5 days while fishing aboard the super panga Dos Hermanos 2. The trio, while catching some Bonito for bait just outside the harbor, had a estimated 700 Lb Black Marlin take one of their baits right in the prop wash. After a short screaming run the huge fish broke water as well as the 30 lb test line but managed to keep the Bonito. It was a sight that Ray said he will never forget. An additional bonus to the number of SAILFISH they landed was one huge Sail landed by Darren that was estimated at close to 165 lbs.. New York City fly fishing angler, Gary Wendrovski fishing aboard the Vamonos 3 landed three SAILFISH in one day on the fly. Mr. Wayne Miller and Larry Cowles of the Silver Bow Fly Shop along with their group while fishing aboard the super pangas, Janeth, Secuestro, Marfel and Tarpon landed 25 BONITOS on flies as well as a 47' Dorado taken by Bill Williams. Angler Rick Varnell took two 20 lb. YELLOWTAIL jacks on a fly and Mr. Wayne Miller released his first Pacific Sailfish on a fly, a beautiful fish estimated to be in the 120 lb class. Washington state angler Mr. Ron Hammill fishing with captain Sabino on the super panga ' MELS ' landed 6 SAILFISH in two offshore days. Angler Mr Peohlman fishing aboard the Leydy with Captain Candelerio landed 4 SAILFISH in 2 days. Mr Jim Wolf landed 4 SAILFISH in one day while fishing with Captain Jose Vargas on the LA Bamba. Dr. Jim Schmonsky had twin 3 SAILFISH days aboard the La Bamba and Moramay. Returning angler Jerry Burns, fishing 3 days aboard the Dos Hermanos 2 landed 4 Sails, 8 Rainbow runners, 2 Yellowtail Jacks and 8 Bonitos. Washington Angler, Chris Morrison landed 14 Rainbow runners 12 Yellowtail Jacks and 28 Bonitos in 2 inshore days with captain Adolofo and 14 Sails in 2 days while fishing aboard the Dos Hermanos 2. Arizona fly fishing angler Steve Brillhart fishing aboard the Monica for four days raised 39 Sailfish releasing 2 fish. Fly fishing partner Erik Cramer fishing aboard the Zapatito Gordo had an equal number of opportunites also landing 2 SAILS in 4 days. First time visitor to Ixtapa Zihuatanejo Paul Collins and Matthew Reid fishing aboard the Vamonos had the single best day, landing 8 Sailfish. Conditions remain near perfect with the majority of the SAILFISH being caught inside of 10 miles. Several Marlin were raised and the Dorado have been spotty. Yellowfin Tuna remain far offshore and the Roosterfish have once again done the disappearing act.

Ixtapa Zihuatanejo weather: Seasonably nice with an occasional passing shower

Sea Conditions: Calm

Bait Supply: Very Good

Sincerely,
Stan Lushinsky
