3.0 lb. Largemouth Bass caught by Tim Fairlie fishing on Tuesday November 10, 2009 at 11:54 in Carnegie Lake near Princeton in Mercer County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a square-billed crank a Crankbait

Took the Jarhead Birthday off and decided to spend some time in Princeton. Hit the lake around 10am and fished until 2pm.

Water temp was in the LOW 50's (according to another guy fishing.. my transducer doesn't do temps..ugh) and the wind was slim to none.

Went everywhere ( flats, coves, points, channel) and threw everything at 'em. Cranks, jig, shakey, trap, chatters, tube, funions, and a wacky-rigged tube of Megastrike.

I really thought the bite would be pretty hot today, but it wasn't really happening. Ended up with two shorts (a shakey and crank), and one "good one", also on the crank. All 3 came in shallow water (2-4ft) but seemed to be roaming (i.e: not near any sort of specific cover).

Here's the only one that was photo-worthy

I've been meaning to give Carnegie a try. Does it have shore line fishing access?

Nice fish. You Jersey guys are making me want to head back home and get at some of those Manasquan River browns, the Farrington pike, and the Passaic River smallies. We all gotta hook up some time and fish.
