New Jersey Bass Fishing Featured on Backwoods Angler TV

March 21, 2011

When it comes to bass fishing, the Garden State may very well have the nation’s greatest diversity of bass waters and bass fishing opportunities. Mike Iaconelli, a Jersey boy who made it big on the B.A.S.S. pro circuit, credits much of his success to the many different types of New Jersey bass waters he fished as a kid.

Backwoods Angler TV came to New Jersey last summer for bass fishing on two very different bass waters, the Salem Canal in south Jersey and north Jersey’s Lake Hopatcong. The show’s host, Blaine Mengel, fished with Division of Fish and Wildlife fisheries biologist and B.A.S.S. tournament angler, Chris Smith. Chris knows where the bass are in New Jersey and knows how to catch them. The New Jersey Bassin show is a must see for serious bass anglers to hear and learn what our state bass fishing expert knows.
