    I have a cousin who loves to fish but he has been stickin' to salt water lately because he really doesn't know any good catfishing holes. He is in Riverdale in North Jersey. Can anyone help him out?

    He is actually in Oak Ridge, his sister is in Riverdale. he isn't too far from the Delaware Water Gap. We went out in his boat for Bluefish last July 4th from Freeport and had a blast. Caught more than his live wells and coolers could hold. A lot of 5# to 20# fish.

    im south of the water gap by 15 miles well where i fish im 15 miles south and i would help him out but i dont know many good catfish hole ether. i do alright in the delaware river but not great. i could show him some good smallmouth action, good trout streams, and a few other places but catfishing isnt my strong point. i just dont get out enough catfishing.

    i grew up in west milford. that is the town that oak ridge is in. he can go to the hudson river for the white cats. they will hit any cut bait.. but cut shad or bunker is the best.. he can go by the power plant in tomkins cove and fish the rocks. and there is also the chance to catch a striper in the spring... he can also go the the delaware river and catch channel cats. fish at the gap with cut shad or cut shiners. fish at the head of the pools in the summer and will probably do good. or he can go to pretty much any of the public spots and do good... on the local front, if he can get onto pinecliff lake, it has some channels and alot of bullheads. belchers creek, below the dam of pinecliff lake has limited acess but has some big channels and a few flatheads. it isn't a big creek but goes into greenwood lake. greenwood is ok. but you need a boat. lake hopatcong has some nice fish.. bud lake has some nice channels in it. is has a lot of bank access along rte 46. again fish all of these places with cut bait.... monksville has some nice channels in. my personal best is about 10lbs... fished by the trees on the beach.. good luck
