Irene is set to hit NJ later today, so I spent a couple of hours on the local lake this morning. The fishing was good, mostly bluegills caught on small yellow and red poppers. I’m really starting to believe that color doesn’t matter all that much.
It was overcast and comfortable, but there was a fair amount of wind, causing me to reposition the kayak frequently. I was casting towards the lily pads and getting fish on every other cast.
Here are some pics. The bluegill in the first picture, which covered my hand and part of my wrist, easily went over 10″. The colors on these fish are really starting to come out as we head into fall. Stay dry and Enjoy!
