Twin Lakes near Newton, New Jersey
This is a nice lake to fish with no fishing pressure. In all my trips there, I only saw one other boat on the lake.
The boat launch road needs some work right near the lake and I would suggest you have a truck pulling the trailer.
In addition, the lake is really not fishable by boat after the middle of June because of low water and thick weeds. Later on in the year, I use a kayak to paddle over and through the weeds in the first lake to get to the fishable water in the second lake. That's why it's called Twin Lakes.
I had a great day, catching three largemouths (two over four pounds),three enormous pickerel, two really big crappie, a foot and a half catfish and a slew of panfish.
I caught the bass and pickerel on live shiners and a Senko, the crappie on a small jig and the catfish and panfish on live worms. It was a great day.
