Fishing ON TOP of Melting Ice In Northern New Jersey (Last Ice of WINTER 2022?!)
Welcome back Catternation. Guess what, winter is ALMOST gone in New Jersey... or is it? As the winter starts to finalize its grip on the Northeast (especially in New Jersey) many of us fishermen are timing our last ice trips. Remember that you should only go out on at least 4 inches of black ice, or 6-8 inches of white ice. While drilling holes we repeatedly checked to make sure it was thick enough, which I'm glad to inform you it was. Today I come at you from Northern New Jersey while on the hunt for a Musky! Really, the boys and I are targeting anything like pickerel, crappie, perch, bass, or even trout... but the Musky is the true trophy. We use Frabill tip-ups to bait up some live bait and also jig up with some tungsten jigs. Make sure you FOLLOW me for more awesome content, and I look forward to seeing you next time. Yours truly, - Kevin 'Catterman'
