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.

Report Description: Capt. George Landrum
'Fly Hooker' Sportfishing


WEATHER: We have had just a wonderful week, lots of sun, a little bit of a breeze, a
few clouds to cool things off and the temperatures have not been to high, mostly in the
90’s during the day and the low 80’s at night. If it was just about 5 degrees cooler and
10% less humid, it would be heaven! (Hot Cha)

WATER: The green water we had after the storm has begun to vanish and the water is
getting nice and blue again. On the Pacific side we are getting temperatures in the
80-81 degree range out past the Golden Gate and the San Jaime Banks, and the seas
have remained at around 5 feet with a light chop of 1 foot or so. On the Sea Of Cortez
the water has been 82 degrees just to the south of us and 84 degrees at the Gorda
Banks. The water there has been great, nice and flat with just a slight wind ripple
almost every day. (Reelin and Rockin)

BAIT: Mostly Mackerel with a few Caballito and Mullet. The normal $2 per bait. (Roys


BILLFISH: The Marlin have been close to home this week. Most of the action has
taken place within 5 miles of the port and there have been both Blue Marlin and Black
Marlin, as well as Striped Marlin caught. Most of the Blue and Blacks have been
between 200 and 300 pounds and most of them have been caught on trolled lures.
The boats that have tried soaking live bait for them have not had a lot of luck this week,
it may be that the Marlin are striking out of anger instead of hunger as there are lots of
squid around. The usual black/green lures and also lighter colors that imitate squid
have both brought in fish. The Striped Marlin seem to cover a bit larger of an area but
with the full moon we just had, the bite was a bit off on them. Of course, there are
always exceptions! I know of one boat that had an exceptional day on Wednesday, the
day of the full moon. The boat caught and released two Blue Marlin and two Striped
Marlin! (Further On Up The Road)

YELLOWFIN TUNA: Find the porpoise and you find the Tuna, that was the refrain of
the week. There were porpoise almost everywhere, from the Pacific at the Golden
Gate to the Gorda on the Cortez, and every time you got into them, there were fish. Of
course the first couple of boats were the ones catching, but there were fish there even
if you were boat number 25. At the end of the week the action moved close to home as
there was a large pod of Porpoise found just 6 miles out, a nice short run! Almost all
the fish this week were in the 25-40 pound class, but I did see a couple that were over
100 pounds brought in, and I heard of one that was over 200 pounds. These fish were
not shy, and almost anything was working on them. (Can I Change My Mind)

DORADO: It was sure nice to see the Dorado flags flying again! Some of the boats
this week got really lucky and found schools of fish, most of it under some sort of
floating debris. Both the Pacific and the Cortez were holding fish but there seemed to
be a slightly higher concentration on the Cortez side, around 5 miles from shore. Bright
lures and slow trolled live Mackerel accounted for most of the fish, and the sizes were
ranging from 10-12 pounds to 30-35 pounds. Almost every boat found a Dorado or two,
some found more, and there were a few boats that just had no luck at all. (I’m A Ram)

WAHOO: Full moon means Wahoo, and that was what happened this past week. Just
like last week, there were a lot of lures lost to the knife-jawed speed demons. Most of
the fish were incidental catch while trolling for Marlin, but there seemed to be a few
more fish caught around both the lighthouse points in 600 feet of water. Dark colored
lures in close and light colored lures wayyyy back worked well this week. (I’m Evil)

INSHORE: Jack Crevalle and Roosterfish were inshore kings this week, with the
bottomfish performing as court jesters. Roosters were found on the Cortez side from La
Laguna down to Missiones. Slow trolled Mullet were the ticket. The Jacks were
concentrated on the Pacific side and almost any smaller baits were getting good
results. Boats that stopped and dropped small live baits to the bottom or used cut bait
were getting fair action on small Snapper and Grouper. I think a night trip for
bottomfish during the full moon would produce some really good catches, but no one
here will do it, sigh.

NOTES: Last week I mentioned that you should check a companies refund policy
before booking a boat, this week I would just like to remind everyone that without a
deposit, there is no reserved day. It is amazing how many times I meet people walking
around the Marina looking for a boat that I know for a fact is already out fishing. When
asked when and how they booked the boat, most of them can only say that they
e-mailed of phoned for a booking, but could not get a deposit made in time. Almost
everyone says that either the Captain or the owner assured them that they had the
boat, but I know that money talks, and unless it was a steady repeat client, the owner or
Captain would fish someone who put up money rather than wait for a “maybe they will
show up” client. That’s it for this week! This report was written with the help of my
friend Charlie Albrecht, as he supplied a lot of new music for me. This particular report
was written to the sounds of that guitar giant, the late Roy Buchanan, on his 1975 CD
“Livestock”. Until next week, Tight Lines!
