  1. Great site, Ken. Nice photos and well done videos. I sincerely hope that whenever I get back to NJ. that we can team up and go chase down some form of tasty animal and do a little conspiring on some videos too. Good job, my friend.

  2. Hey Ken , Nice Fishin u been doing , I like to see a multi species angler , me I catch Bass all types too . Gona give Striper Fishin a Go this Fall / Winter . What type of lures you frequent do you have an open mind to the market and try new lure types or you bread and butter it ? I tend to Bread and butter , I have a specific lure that has different applications , it can be used as a search bait ,getting a feel for what’s on the bottom ; rick, grass , rip rap , and etc. Also burn it in tip up n use as a top water . I prefer using 3/16 ounce jig head matched with any 3-4 inch lil flukes or swimbajts ( Weedless or exposed ) prefer weedless though . Still learning new methods and trying other lures but that’s my bread and butter .

    1. Hiya Adam – Thanks….. glad ya checked out my site. Yes I do indeed enjoy all types of fishing! As for lures, pretty much open to tryin` new lures.
      Lately I`ve been thinkin` that it would be very cool if I could test new lures for Cabelas, Gander Mountain or Bass Pro just to share my opinion.
      I do like to fish live or even dead eels when I`m on the Delaware River chasin` Catfish or Stripers. When it comes to Pike, I like my trusty Spinner baits but also love to throw “new” lures at `em too! Sounds like you really have plan when it comes to Bass……. Do you fish rivers or ponds for `em?

  3. hello Ken…just saw a video of yours on youtube about pike fishing on the Passaic river so I sub’d your channel. I am going to be attending a conference the first week of May in Parsippanny NJ and decided I may need to take the kayak along for the trip and do some fishing. How is the fishing up near Parsippanny along the Passaic? We don’t have Pike or largemouth up here where I am from in Canada so I am hoppign to target these 2 species. I also wouldn’t mind trying my luck at carp. If you have any info you wouldn’t mind passing along that would be greatly appreciated. Nice website and channel!!!

    thanks, nate

    1. Hiya Nate – Thanks for checkin` out my site. Anywhere along the Passaic can work well for Pike. Not so sure about
      gettin` into Largemouth as I never went after them on the river.
      I can put you into some decent Largemouth fishin` over at Spruce Run Reservoir if you`re up for it.
      Hell….. maybe we can meet up & do a little `Yak fishin` for Pike that week you come to Jersey & also
      have some fun with those monster Carp in the Passaic River if you`d like. Find me on Facebook at

      Thanks again –


      1. This was An awesome video . I’m in roseland so I launch off river road behind willow brook mall also from Bloomfield ave in pine brook I always head down stream. I’ve come into some pike mostly on white spinner baits . Would you suggest further up stream from river road of go further down streak below the falls in little falls ?
