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.

August 9-15, 2010

Weather: For the majority of the week we had daytime highs in the mid to high 90's while the nighttime lows were in the mid 80's. Our change in the weather came at the end of the week when we had a lot of cloud cover move in and this morning (Sunday) our temperature gauge showed 77 degrees, 10 degrees cooler than the same time yesterday. Not only was it cooler, but when I stepped outside I thought we had a water pipe break on the roof. After a bit more checking it appeared that the clouds dropped some rain on us, about ˝ inch, and the plants loved it!

Water: Surface conditions on the Pacific side were a little rougher at the end of the week than during the beginning as the clouds were preceded by wind, quite a few people thought the Pacific was an E-ticket ride on Friday. It was better on the Cortez side of the Cape as far as the surface conditions went, and the water averaged several degrees warmer as well with most of the area showing 82 degrees, plus or minus a degrees or two. I was fishing on Thursday and the warmest I saw was 84.4 degrees. On the Pacific the water close to the beach was cooler at 73-75 degrees, but the farther offshore your went the warmer it became, up to 80 degrees in a few areas.

Bait: Caballito and Mullet were available at $3 per bait.


Billfish: I was amazed upon returning from our 10 day vacation to hear about the numbers of Blue and Black Marlin that were being caught. There were still Striped Marlin around, but as normal with these warmer waters, they were not present in large numbers. Certain areas, such as the 1150 and the Gorda Banks, were producing multiple bites for every boat every day on Blues and Blacks that seemed to average 200 pounds, but the larger ones were in the 400-500 pound class. Lures were working great, and dropping back live bait produced quite a few fish as well, but unless the boat was prepared for the larger Marlin with 80 to 100 pound class drop-backs, the fight was bound to last a long time. These Blues and Blacks fight a lot harder than Striped Marlin, and the #30 class drop-back gear used for them made getting a Blue or Black to the boat problematic for most visiting anglers. These fish were actually being found just about everywhere, they were close to the beach as well as at the high spots.

Yellowfin Tuna: We had clients out this week who boated on Yellowfin Tuna at #147 that was caught on a lure, the same boat caught one two days before on a kite bait that weighed #180, and our friend Mike landed on the same size. While these were nice fish, they were not averaged size. Most of the Yellowfin that were caught were in the 12-20 pound class. All the fish, at least the larger ones, were found with Porpoise on the Cortez side from the Cabrillo Seamount and to the southwest of there along the 1,000 fathom line. There was a decent concentration of the smaller Yellowfin at the Lighthouse on the Pacific side for several days early in the week that were not associated with Porpoise and the Pangas really hit them hard, averaging 8-10 fish per boat.

Dorado: For some reason the number of Dorado dropped off a bit this week. The best catch by our clients this week on Dorado was 8 fish, with only one of them over 20 pounds. Most of the smaller fish were close to home, just outside the bay. The larger fish were scattered, but a few boats were able to get two or three over 20 pounds each trip.

Wahoo: I did not hear of a lot of Wahoo caught this week, but I know there were some because I saw one that probably weighed about 45 pounds being brought in to the weigh station. There were scattered bites offshore when boats were fishing for Marlin and Tuna, I don't know if there were any concentrations of fish inshore.

Inshore: Roosterfish action along the beach was good this week with the average size 20 pounds. Quite a bit of difference from the 3 pound average we have in the cooler waters! A few real “Bubbas”, fish over 60 pounds, were caught as well with the largest I heard of just over 80 pounds. Working the beach areas in 80-100 feet of water while slow trolling live Mullet was the best method this week for the larger fish. Some Snapper were caught in the rock piles and quite a few of the Pangas were going for the football Yellowfin at the lighthouse while they were there.

Notes: Having been gone for 10 days it only took a couple of days to get back into the swing of things. Hopefully the fishing continues to improve (although I don't know how it can get much better, maybe if the Dorado really take off!) and the storms stay away. I don't mind the bits of rain, but keep the wind away! Until next week, tight lines!
Just came to our attention you can now buy fishing licenses online. Some Spanish required...won't let me buy quantities, as it looks like you can only buy one at a time. I only played on the website for a mew minutes this morning, look great for those yearly licenses!!! Thanks David for the website
