Youth fishing challange June 10th Califon NJ

22 posts in this topic

This past weekend I got.certified to be a HOFNOD (hooked on fishing not on drugs) instructor.  As part of it on one of the two state wide free fishing days June 10th we are holding our 2nd Annual youth fishing challenge at 37 Hoffman's crossing rd Califon NJ from 11:30-3pm. Open to any children 20 and under. Last year I was just involved but this year it is my gig so I'd really appreciate any NJGF member support by bringing a kid out fishing to my pond. Also looking for a few knowledgeable fishermen who would like to volunteer their time taking fish off hooks and measuring and recording the species. http://www.state.nj.us/dep/fgw/hofnod_ythchallenge17.htm?prompt=0

How do you register for it?  My son would be interested.

I know there is a way to pre-register and I'll find out but you don't have to. You can do it at the event.

Large mouth bass, Bluegill, Crappie, large carp, a few large catfish, Rainbow trout, and hybrid strippers.

Bump! I took a group of kids fishing today all 6 kids caught their first fish ever and they caught a ton more. The pond is on fire right now! We fished till we ran out of bait and then found some more. Fish were hitting on 1/2 night crawler on a #8 or #6 hook and live shiners on a #6 hook. The lighter the line the better. They caught a bunch of rainbow trout one of which was a 16" albino, some nice large mouth, a ton of bluegill and 1 huge black crappie.

So I see the start time is 11:30, is there a registration time or anything like that? And like you said no need to bring bait correct?

Register as you arrive at the pond it will take 2 seconds. 

Worms and minnows will be provided if you would like to use any other bait than that feel free to bring it

@NJturtlePower and @Sharpdogs

Thanks for coming if you guys made it out yesterday. Sorry I was not able to meet you guys. All in all the event went well I think (after the first half hour with a snafu on upper management's end), the kids caught allot of fish even with the heat of the afternoon.

Yeah we were there, pretty sure I heard your name yelled across the pond a few times.  My son had a great time, caught a few large sunfish and couple nice bass too. 13 1/2" & 14 1/2" Largemouth, but we couldn't stay to the end. Tired to upload a pic but seems like I'm limited? Need more posts or what's the deal?

What was the biggest caught? I overheard at least an 18" bass at some point.

    • An Election with Consequences: NJ2AS Endorses Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and Mayor Carlos Rendo Posted by Alexander Roubian 425sc on October 23, 2017 · Add your reaction The New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) exists to defend, protect, and preserve our second amendment right to bear arms from public officials that disdain, disregard and disrespect the constitution. Furthermore, NJ2AS is equally committed to reclaiming all of the rights we have lost to radical New Jersey politicians that have willfully chosen to empower criminals. It is by these measures we judge the fitness of candidates for public office. Additionally, a central role of our mission at NJ2AS is to ensure the safe use of firearms for self-defense. While New Jersey police officers often do a great job responding to incidents, they cannot be there the moment a violent crime commences and life is potentially hanging in the balance. It is our job as citizens, each and every one of us, to be the first line of defense in a free society when a dangerous situation unfolds. Because a victim of crime cannot sue the police or the state for failing to protect them from a crime, we believe it is important to allow citizens the right to carry a firearm for self-defense. We believe it is especially important that women be able to exercise their second amendment rights, too. There are countless, tragic examples of what happens when all a woman has is a piece of paper -- a restraining order -- to defend her from a violent threat. NJ2AS will never forget Carol Bowne, and that is why it is time to end New Jersey's deadly permit process and work towards following the Constitution as written. Phil Murphy and Sheila Oliver are not only members of the elitist Democratic Party establishment that has -- in Trenton -- made New Jersey less safe by stripping law-abiding citizens of our Second Amendment rights. They’ve actually promised to pass even more laws that would make it harder for women to defend themselves while empowering violent criminals. It speaks volumes that Murphy and Oliver are committed to turning New Jersey into a sanctuary state for murders, rapists and other violent criminals illegally living in our country and state, but don’t support law-abiding citizens exercising their constitutional rights. In their campaign statements, New Jersey Democrats continue to take pro-criminal, anti-law enforcement positions that NJ2AS finds repulsive. The most egregious being the sympathy demonstrated towards Joanne Chesimard, a convicted NJ cop-killing terrorist on the FBI’s Most Wanted. That’s why we’re glad voters have a capable alternative in Kim Guadagno and Carlos Rendo for Governor and Lt. Governor. We support and endorse Guadagno and Rendo because we believe they are best positioned to defend the Second Amendment, Bill of Rights and make New Jersey safe again. NJ2AS calls on all of our members and supporters, across the political spectrum, to get behind Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and Carlos Rendo for the future of New Jersey.   Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and NJ2AS President Alexander Roubian at her birthday party Forget what your Union Tells you to do. If you are concerned about your Gun rights (or Lack Of them) there's only one choice.     Murphy= Jon Corzine 2.0 and looks like a pervert that wears woman panties and offers candy to children to enter his windowless Van. Bought his way, like Corzine into the Race.  
    • I'm a fan of the cheap Kershaws as well. Incredibly sharp and durable for the price.
    • HE did u ever try it ?? 
    • i just carry a cheap kershaw that i bought from a snap on dealer. i've got this cool little push knife i think it's called that i may start tucking into the watch pocket of my jeans.....
    • Seems like it would be a simple request, but so far Google turns up nothing. The FN-FNAR has a pistol grip stock but would be better with a regular, non-pistol grip style stock instead (in my opinion). However I am unable to find anything of the sort. I am also wondering if anyone knows, does this take the same stock as the Browning BAR MK3? And if so, where would one find a stock for this?
