Manasquan Reservoir Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]

finesse jigs topped with soft plastics. Fish the jigs very slowly and watch for line movement, as the
take will be very subtle. Good luck!

Manasquan Reservoir Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Got one today 4Lb on Square Bill.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.

Manasquan Reservoir Walleye Rating:
Manasquan Reservoir Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be starting to get a little slower in this water temperature. With walleye being a cold water fish, they will start becoming fairly lethargic in this water. With the fish slowing down the fishing will be more difficult to find and coax into biting. However they will be feeding and the walleye bite should still be good. This time of year is a good time to fall back to live bait as standard practice for the best bet at numbers and size of fish.
