Day 39: In The Nick Of Time

A slow-moving section of the Rahway River, near Cranford.
When: Monday, June 20th, from 6pm to 6:30pm
Where: The Rahway River, near Cranford
What: Fishing
Weather: Partly cloudy, high in the 80's.
Moon: Waning, almost a week after full.
Water Conditions: River was fairly low. Stained.

I almost missed Day 39.

A little mishap near the end of my day didn't leave me with too much time, but with a little help from my lovely lady on the homefront, I was able to get out for a few and still do what I needed to get done.

Since I was short on time, I decided to go to a place that I believed was Lincoln Park Lake in Cranford. Bob had sent me a list of fishing spots near Cranford, and this place is literally minutes from where I live. There was a slight bit of confusion though, as I'm not sure if this lake actually exists, and the place that I was fishing is most likely just a slow-moving section of the Rahway River. I did check the previous week's schedule though, and 7 days have passed since I fished the Rahway, so I'm good to go.

I tried fishing for bass for 30 minutes, but came up empty. I did see some carp in the water and some muskrats building a nest, but those were the only signs of life in the water. There was a definitely lack of planning and thought that went into Day 39, so I guess I'm glad to still have this going and shouldn't be too disappointed that I didn't catch a fish.

Next Up: Going to scope out a secret location in Somerset County tonight in hopes of catching a big 'ol bass.
