If you can’t catch a black drum now, you never will. They are all over South Jersey and they are hungry for a nice big clam. Maybe this will be the year that they break the black drum record of 109 pounds.

Delaware River’s striped bass fishing slowed, and a few schoolies were landed on clam or chunks of Atlantic herring, said Karl from Sportsmen Center in Bordentown. But the river’s catfishing was good, from Trenton to Florence, on the herring or Berkley catfish bait.
Delaware River’s striped bass fishing remained decent from Trenton to Burlington, said Karl from Sportsmen’s Center in Bordentown. Clams, frozen Atlantic herring and bloodworms tied into them. A few shad swam the water, though the main migration of shad swam upstream some time ago.
Trout fishing was in full swing, and the angling sounded good, said Scott from Efinger Sporting Goods in Bound Brook. Some anglers had success, and some didn’t, but usual haunts seemed productive. Good reports came from the Black River and the South Branch of the Raritan River. The trout he caught were all healthy-looking, scrappy rainbow trout.
The shad migration showed up in Delaware River, and fishing for them was good on Friday night, said Karl from Sportsmen’s Center in Bordentown. Then the river became blown out with high water, because reservoir water was released into it from New York.
A few shad swam Delaware River, said Karl from Sportsmen’s Center in Bordentown. One was reported hooked but not landed from the river at the Trenton power plant. A few walleyes were tied into from the river at Lambertville, on 3-inch, black twister tails on 1/8-ounce jigs, bounced along bottom. Crappies bit at Assunpink Lake, at the cove in the back, in the shallows, on small Mister Twisters or on shiners, both under a float.
Good catfishing was busted from Delaware River, anywhere from Trenton to Philadelphia, said Karl from Sportsmen’s Center in Bordentown. The cats milled along the flats, sniffing out nightcrawlers, fresh chunks of eels and chicken livers.
