MIDNIGHT SURPRISE IN BAY HEAD, NJ

We picked up a dozen bottom feeders including this 3 foot Sand Shark over the weekend.  We were fishing for Striped Bass off of Mount Street on the beach in Bay Head, N.J.  We were using bunker chunks for Striped Bass but the fish seemed to be elsewhere.

Pittsburgh Fishing on Pine Creek in The North Hills

One of many beautiful fishing spots on Pine Creek in the the North Hills of Pittsburgh right out side of North Park. Pine creek is a haven for large carp, catfish and trout.

"CARP"e DIEM

I've seen so many Carp cruising the creek that it reminded me of the sub hunt for Red October -The only thing that was missing was a white bearded Connery.

Trout Season 2012 in Pittsburgh will go down as a personal best.  Not since the old school days of fishing Lake Shenandoah and the Metedeconk River - Pine Park in Lakewood, New Jersey have trout found my hook so often.

Cat Bonanza

As I mentioned in the inaugural post the catfish were rolling deep today on the Pine. Here are the other cats that I landed and released today. There were so many dark shadows swimming around in the deeper holes today it was like having my own private outdoor aquarium. There were a mixture of catfish, carp, large Mouth Bass and even an impressive Brown Trout made an appearance.

 




A Cat... and The Hat

For my inaugural post I wanted to welcome everyone to Kozelnik Creekside and start by posting this monster catfish that I caught today in Pine Creek in the North Hills of Pittsburgh, P.A.  I placed my lucky West Virginia University hat down beside it to give some scale.  My hat is about a 12" from back to brim so you can estimate the size.  I caught three of these "swimming logs" today in different holes in the creek.

Thanks again for stopping by and keep checking in with Kozelnik Creekside for the next catch and release!
