Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: Lake Musconetcong

by Steve Von Brandt

Lake Musconetcong is located in northern New Jersey, between Sussex and Morris counties. It is actually part of Hopetcong State Park, and doesn't receive the notariety of its bigger brother Hopetcong or Greenwood Lake or any of the central Jersey waters. Yet, it is one of the best bass waters in northern New Jersey.

Years ago, this area was just swampland. It was flooded a long time ago to allow coal transporting barges to make their way to New York City along the Morris canal system. Efforts are being made right now, by the Lake Musconetcong Regional Planning Board, to insure that nature does not reclaim the land as a swamp. Their goal is to preserve the lake's recreational capabilities, bass fishing being one of them. They dredge the lake each year and perform weed harvesting. Even so, in the late spring, the weed growth in Musconetcong is very heavy. Thick mats of vegetation grow almost to the surface in most of the lake, and there are large boulders mixed in this, which makes fishing with a bass boat hard to say the least. More than one trolling shaft and outboard prop have been broken here.

You won't see a lot of boaters, anglers, and water skiers here. The lake does not receive the publicity the other lakes do. In fact, even in the spring and summer on weekends, surprisingly few people will be on the water at any one time. The lake is open to the public and has a good launching ramp. It is located right in the town of Netcong. It is a beautiful 329 acre lake loaded with a variety of cover and some real nice bass.

There are reasons for the lack of traffic on Musconetcong. For one, it is pretty shallow. It's average depth is about 4 feet, with the deepest water being only 6 feet. Since the bottom of the lake gets a lot of sunlight, there is tremendous weed growth. In fact, this lake is probably the 'weediest' you'll see in this region.

The shallow water also allows for rapid warming and cooling of the water compared to deeper lakes, so Musconetcong is usually a few weeks ahead of the other lakes in its seasonal warming and cooling. The daily temperature changes are more pronounced.

For the bass, this is an ideal habitat. There is a lot of food and cover to hide in. The bass we catch in Musconetcong are usually about 2 1/2 to 3 pounds on average, and some much bigger have been taken. It is not unusual at all to catch 8-10 bass in the 3 pound range, and one 5 pounds or over on a good day. Last year, we even took a 6 1/4 pounder from here.


You should have plenty of weedless lures at Musconetcong. Tournament frogs, Bass Rats, Top-Props, and weedless spoons, along with Senkos and worms rigged Texas style are a must. There are some open pockets where you can cast some buzzbaits early in the year, but they disappear quickly as the water starts to warm. Most of the time, we rig the plastics without any weight, as the grass is just too thick. It is actually counterproductive because the water is only 4-5 feet deep. We like to use a spinning rod in 6 - 6 1/2 foot lengths in medium actions and a 6-8 pound test Stren line. In the baitcasters, we use a 7', med/hvy action rod, such as a G. Loomis Crankin' Stick and a Shimano Chronarch, spooled with 20-25 pound test Stren or Spiderline.


The best areas to work these lures is the edges of the lily pads, right in with the frogs and rats, and the edges of the thick slop and mats of grass that accumulate on the surface. If you get there early in the year, you can learn where all the boulders and underwater objects are, which will aid your boating and fishing later. It is also worth searching the small drop-offs or depressions, many of which are right in the middle of the heavy grass. These areas will concentrate the fish, and at times we catch several from a small area before moving on.

Two areas that are really good are the edges of one small island, and the length of the tow path used by the old barge system. If you picture a line drawn from the public ramp to the far side, passing through a point about midway between the island and the right hand shore, you'll have a good idea of where it is.

Some other good baits to try in Musconetcong are soft plastic jerk baits like a Zoom, or Fin_S-Shad, or Sluggos and Bass Assassins. All in all, Musconetcong is a good time lake for all. Hopefully, it will be there for many years to come. Practice catch, photo, and release and you can assure the future of fishing and Lake Musconetcong for everyone.

Cabo Fish Report
July 2-8, 2007

WEATHER: It is finally time to admit that nature has brought summertime weather to us here in Cabo. This week our daytime temperatures have been in the mid to high 90ís while the nighttime lows have been in the high 70ís and low 80ís. A breath of wind from the northwest has kept the humidity down but that is soon to become a thing of the past. This week we had mostly sunny skies with a few scattered clouds early in the week but no rain at all.
WATER: The California current had a great effect upon our fishing this week as it brought cool, green water down the west coast of the Cape and as it passed Cabo it turned into the Sea Of Cortez. The current only ran to 20 miles offshore on the Pacific side, outside that boundary the water warmed to 78 degrees and was nice and blue. Inside the 20 mile zone the water averaged 71-75 degrees and had an increasing green tint the closer to the beach you got. On the Cortez side of the Cape the cool green water extended south for 30 miles and wrapped around to affect the water as far to the east as the Cabrillo Seamount. Surface conditions were great on both sides of the Cape as our winds were light and for the most part the seas were fairly glassy even though we did have some large swells from the south.
BAIT: Mostly Caballito this week with the new moon having a great effect on the fishing and there were some Mackerel available from the bait barge just outside the Marina. Some Sardinas were available as well if you ventured up toward San Jose. The asking price for the little baits was the usual $20 per scoop and for the larger baits was the normal $2 per bait.

BILLFISH: We are between seasons on the Billfish right now, the water is warm enough that the Striped Marlin are off their feed and it is still not warm enough to bring in any numbers of Blue or Black Marlin. There were great numbers of Striped Marlin spotted on the surface this week but the combination of warmer water and a new moon seemed to have a negative effect on their willingness to strike a lure or eat a live bait. Most of the fish were found on the boundary between the cool and warm water on the Pacific side of the Cape, but there were occasional concentrations found on the Cortez side around the 95 spot and the 1150. I also had the chance to see a Swordfish estimated at #250 being carted along the Malecon as it was being taken to the Smokehouse. It was reported to have been taken along the green-blue boundary 15 miles to the south of the Cape. The blue water on top of the San Jaime bank and to the west of there drew a large number of boats to the area, but the fishing was spotty, there seemed to be better luck on the green side of the break.
YELLOWFIN TUNA: All I can say here is that there were some scattered schools of football fish found but no concentrations of larger fish. I did hear of an #80 fish being caught near to home, but no other information on big fish reached my ears.
DORADO: Once again Dorado were the fish of the week as it seemed every boat that went out was able to get at least one or two of these great eating fish. Most of them were in the 15-20 pound class but there were still enough in the 30-pound range to keep things interesting and I did see one boat bring in a pair of fish in the 50-60 pound class. It appeared that most of the Dorado were found in one of two areas, along the blue-green color break (also a current line) when floating debris was found, or along the coastline within 1 mile of the beach. The larger fish were found offshore but there seemed to be bigger numbers close to the beach. Small bright colored lures worked well as did slow trolled live bait.
WAHOO: Hmm? The red flags I saw this week were for shark, though I did hear a conversation on the radio where one 20-pound fish was caught.
INSHORE: Inshore fishing this week consisted of Dorado and Lady Fish, there were few other species taken on a regular basis although the inshore standbys did make an appearance at times. Snapper, Grouper, the occasional Roosterfish and a few stray Yellowtail were found here and there. As the water warms the Rooster fishing ought to get better and the Dorado and Yellowfin Tuna bite should improve.
NOTES: It was slow for me this week and I did not get a lot of fishing in. Most of the information here is that relayed to me by the guys that managed to get out. I am going to be gone for a week starting on the 11th but will try and get out some information next week. I will be calling home everyday and hopefully will be receiving good news about the fishing, which I will relay on to you. Donít forget about the long-line problem we face as a sport-fishing destination, it may soon have a major effect on us. Check it out at the following link and add you voice to ours!
Until next week, Tight lines!
