Day 60: Another After-Hours Affair

A collection of topwaters.
When: Monday, July 11th, from 8:45pm and 9:30pm
Where: Watchung Lake.......in.........errrr.......Watchung
What: Bass fishing with topwaters
Weather: Hot and humid. Temp still near 90 at 9pm, mostly clear skies. Wind 10mph plus from the S to SW.
Moon: Waxing. Closing in on full.
Water Conditions: Could not see.

I'm sure that everyone has heard the saying, "there's not enough time in the day."

Well, there's not.

With the end my work responsibilities in Staten Island approaching, I've started staying there a bit later. Although I'm hoping this will lead to more success at my job, it does not allow me to fish at 6:30 or 7pm. Instead, it looks a good chunk of my fishing from now until September will have to be done at 5-AM, or after dark.

I'm hoping this will produce better results on the fishing front as well.

Ever since Steve took me hybrid and walleye fishing on Hopatcong, I've been itching to get-in on some more topwater action. This was my second attempt, and I still have not seen the massive surface eruption that I've been hoping for.

So I will try and try again.

I had not fished Watchung Lake, so I thought I would give it a shot. I don't know a whole lot about it, but given the fact that it's in Union County and that a dozen anglers were there when I arrived, I'm going to draw the conclusion that it gets pounded just as hard as every other puddle in these parts.

I sincerely long for the day when I come across a body of water that is under-fished.

But until then, I will continue to do my best to catch fish from the places that are currently available.

Next Up: Carp fishing with my morning coffee.
