Gone try get out tomm in the rain was on the beach this weekend. Don't get frustrated guys every year the action slows for the full moon 3 days afterwards things have always turned on and remember fish are keyed in on the tons of herring and shad that are around.
We gone see whts up this week I deff don't feel like they just coming up river spawning an leaving. The weather been crazy so tht plays a part truth will be told this week. I have heard of decent catches by people who don't frequent these sites just keep at it time and effort alwas pays off.
And I haven't heard of one fish yet close to 50 so they coming I'm sure. On Sunday dod was hot thts way south so fret not people.

I didnt want to bring this up but this has been on my mind all winter and spring.
Is it possible the river dredging is why its been a bad a year.

They were dredging last season and season before tht. Last season I crushed them fishing few hundred yards below the dredge below Tacony bridge. Each season has its own surprises. Temps are crazy air pressure is so up an down the wind and cold nights are playing switch a roo on us there's been a lot going on this season. Plus fishing pressure is at an all time high on the river. There's so many things u have to factor into the equation thts its hard to surmise exactly whts happening but I'm still sticking to my theory tht April is march may is April June is may until I notice differently I'm sticking to it.

MU they have been dredging out front of Fort Mifflin all winter and still there. They were dredging at Tinicumm island last spring during run.
This is probally limiting the run to go north. I hope im wrong i fish CBB area.

I agree with mu fish, I feel that it will turn on this weekend. Fishing means patience as they say, I guess. I blew about a hundred bucks on bait and fuel this weekend, but it is still so nice just to get away and be out on the water away from the insanity of the everyday grind. Look forward to a great weekend all, chuckles

Took me a few days but I'm heading out now.........

Update: took quick trip to local creek to check on status of bait fish and I'm sad to report all the herring and shad are gone have pushed back down stream to the river. I found that to be pretty confusing they only just showed up in small number 2 weeks ago and last week I was actually watching them come up stream through the rapids and they usually hang around for a good month or so. I was dumb founded. If the herring and shad push back out the bay we can forget about any kind of extended run this year smdh.

Bout to be on the river in a few minutes.

Fished from the Jetty from 630 to 9 with some other guys (4 of us in total) throwing black, blue and white, pink and white, and yellow bombers and swim baits. Not a hit. One bump on the yellow but that was all.

Heard from one of the guys that his mom and aunt were kayaking above the Trenton makes bridge and one guy in a kayak pulled up two fish in quick succession using an all white swim bait just as the sun sank. Now these fish I heard were around 24-28 inches.

Will be headed out tonight and tomorrow night as well. Hopefully something bites...
