Trout Fishing on the Hackensack River with the Line Dancer


Click the image for an enlarged view

  • Notice how the Line Dancer is attached to the rod. It comes in serveral sizes and stays firmly in place with the rubberized material around it..
  • We used a small 1/4 oz gold metal lure to catch all of the trout on this trip.
  • The small lure coupled with the use of the Line Dancer produced the most fish caught on this river today!
  • Attaching the line to the Dancer was simple and easy. It did not interfere with the hook set either.
  • It is possible to launch a small boat here but be prepared to walk in very thick mud at low tide.
  • Allan & Pete locked on to a few trout with the same 1/4 oz gold lure too but did not have as many hits as the writer.
  • The trout just found the writers presentation of the gold lure and Line Dancer irresistible!
  • The Line Dancer clips on with ease and can be removed for use on other rods in seconds.
  • Heading back to the cars after a productive trip despite strong winds.
  • LOCATION: Riveredge Recreational Park, Riveredge, NJ This is a low tide shot so make sure you leave and return before dead low.Don't bring a big boat because that will definately get grounded.

We decided to do some "urban" fishihng today on the Hackensack River in Riveredge, NJ. This is a northerly location for this river that narrows dramatically as it meanders further north. In the section we were on the water depth at high tide is 8 to 10 ft in the middle, and from 1 to 2 ft on both banks. At low tide you will be hard pressed to walk or retrieve a boat as the bottom is very muddy.

We initially tried going for resident Stripe Bass on this section of the river but came up short... wishful thinking on our part. But we made the best of it knowing that more success was likely due to this being New Jersey's opening day for Trout!

In case you were wondering.. the water up there is brackish, more fresh then salty actually, so Trout and resident Stripers can survive.

3 GUYS tried several different lures (metal / plastics) and tackle combinations on this trip to see what worked the best. And after many, many casts we learned that spinning gear and a small 1/4 oz gold metal lure was the most productive.

My Line DancerWe each used the same exact lure but with one difference ... the writer of this article was the only one that attached the LINE DANCER to his rod!

Thlis little jewel was instrumental in producing 8 caught trout, and 3 losses... 11 fish total in just 2 hours of mid day fishing!! Each of us was within striking distance of each other on the same side of the river bank and so I am confident in saying that the LINE DANCER was a KEY factor in my catching most of the fish on this trip!!

The added action imparted by this tool, and a slow retrieve ,made the difference between a good day and an OUTSTANDING day!

We are looking forward to trying the Line Danceragain with plastics and other hard baits in our coming Bass fishing trips.
