6 species in one day fishing round valley and spruce run

Really solid fishing trip from the folks at Bass Fishing Jersey in late November. They start their fishing trip at Round Valley Reservoir, fishing around the North Tower. They are jigging swim baits and the Binsky. While they are targeting Lake Trout, they do catch lots of largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and even a few rainbow trout in the process.

The part of the video where they are fishing at Spruce Run Reservoir is where they caught the crappie and hybrid striped bass, again using the Binsky blade bait.

Check out the Bass Fishing Jersey youtube channel for more of their awesome videos!

Monday 22 August, a little while later, officials were actively searching for a missing boater on Spruce Run Reservoir. State Police Marine Divers recovered the body of a 44 year old Randolph NJ man Tuesday morning. The man, who was an avid fisherman and swimmer, apparently drowned while trying to retrieve his boat which had blown off shore about 30 feet. Full Article Here

Condolences to the families of these men. To my readers…be safe out there.
