Fins and Feathers Outfitters,
Avalon, was guiding snow
goose hunting in New Jersey,
Pennsylvania and New York
this time of year.
Above, a field of decoys.

Outfitters' website.

Fins was lugging
3,000 decoys to set up
on the hunts.

Outfitters' website.

Those are the decoys seen
from farther away.
This was on a farm
in Pennsylvania. In Jersey,
Fins hunts the flyway
in Salem County
near Delaware River,
and the birds were
still there, too.

Fins will resume
fishing from Avalon
in spring, first for
big bluefish on the back
bay in April, maybe for
striped bass on Delaware Bay
around that time. Drum trips
fish Delaware Bay in May.

Not over yet.
Ice-fishing usually
lasts until mid-March in
the Adirondack Mountains, N.Y.
Here’s a northern pike
from the angling recently.
Photo from,
Lake George, N.Y.,
the ice-fishing superstore,
both an online one and
a physical one at the
entrance to the mountains.
Look for the shop to
blow out ice gear at
discount prices soon,
like it does every
year late in the season.

Daytime swordfishing
from the Florida Keys with
Captain Easy Charters
last weekend. Nighttime
fishing for them is more
common for the light-
sensitive swords. But they
can be hooked in
deep water in daytime.
This 100-pounder grabbed
a bait along bottom
in 1,500 feet.

Charters' website.

George Horvath from Trenton
released 32 fish that
were five different species,
including this yellow perch,
at 51-degree Carnegie Lake
on red worms on a
tube jig on 2-pound line.
The lake seemed to
be warming, because he
reported a temp of
38 degrees on his
last trip to Carnegie.
Photo from him.

A 12-hour trip
for cod fished on
Presidents’ Day
on the party boat
Jamaica II, Brielle.
Visit Jamaica II's

The angling was slow,
and the ocean temperature
dropped in a strong
tide from north, but
these were some
of the cod reeled in.
“Had okay life from
the typical undesirables,”
the boat reported.

Fourteen-hour trips
are sailing for cod
every Saturday, and
12-hour trips are
fishing the Mudhole
every Sunday for catches
like cod and ling.

A lake trout
that Capt. Dave Vollenweider,
Live to Fish Guide Service,
the freshwater guide,
trolled along with two
rainbow trout at
34-degree Round Valley
Reservoir on Feb. 17.
He got home
just as snow really
began to fall.

Sailfishing with
Captain Easy Charters
from Islamorada in
the Florida Keys.

Charters' website.

Blackfin tuna were
in the mix. Lots of king
mackerel also bit. All of this
was on live bait, mostly
fished from kites, just offshore
of the reef, about 5
miles from port.

Parker Pete's Fishing Charters,
Belmar, hauled the boat for
maintenance to be ready
for spring fishing.

One of the biggest
projects was that the
engine was pulled ...

... and a new one
was installed. Spring striped
bass charters and invididual
spaces with striper charters
who want more anglers are
booking and do fill up.

George Horvath from Trenton
earlier this winter
said he’d resume fishing
after the second
thaw, and sure enough,
he has. He released five fish,
he said, at Carnegie Lake
in 38-degree water on
a trip last weekend in
fog. He reeled in 14 fish in
two trips so far this year.

One of the big brown trout,
this one landed and
released this past week
on a wooly bugger,
that Jay Peck Guide Service
targets in creeks and rivers
this season, along with
steelheads, in upstate N.Y.
The trout are huge because
they summer in Lake Ontario.
