Croaker caught by Justin Emerle fishing on Sunday November 15, 2009 at 14:10 near Gloucester City in Camden County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a Bloodworm

I decided to head back out to the Pier to try some river striper fishing. My youngest son tagged along.

This was the only fish of the day for us. The tide was going out and was muddy beyond belief from the noreaster that just hit.

I was a bit lost when I reeled this guy in. I had no clue what it was. When I got home and looked it up, I was shocked to learn it was a croaker. This is straight fresh water and is 50 or so miles from the Delaware Bay and even more from the Atlantic Ocean. There are no records of Delaware River Croakers as far as I can find. Pretty bizarre.

Good afternoon, this is Herman L Bass III, i've caught crokers a bit further south at fort mott state park in Salem. Even though the water may be fresh, the salt line changes based on the amount of rain we receive. Remember several years ago when the whale was stranded near the walt whitman bridge. I've also seen blue crabs in the lower schuykill river near the art musuem below the falls. Catch more!!!
