While fishing for Bluegill and Panfish, I catch My First Carp by chance! I use a 6 1/2 foot long Fenwick Eagle 2-piece rod, 8 pound line and size 10 circle hook on a dropshot rig. I believe I am able to catch and reel in this awesome fish because I use a worm, the water is murky, and I handle it nice and slowly.

Check out my action-packed video.

As a bass fisherman, perhaps I caught lightening in a bottle? If you caught a fish in an unconventional way, let me know in the comments.

What makes the Ned Rig so successful? The secret is in the short, but fat size of the soft plastic which is perfect, under 3-iinches, for catching Bass and even aggressive Sunfish. Instead of using the rubber worm in the traditional Ned Rig method, I simply put the bait on a weedless Keitech hook and just watch the fish jump on it!

Plus, in this video, I get my first sighting of a live eel. A very interesting looking creature to see in person.

Check out my video.
Enjoy and Happy Labor Day weekend everybody!

what fish go for ultralight rippin rap

For fishing, I like using the Rippin’ Rap lipless crankbait, by Rapala, to cover a lot of water, and I found a miniature version. I take the size 4 ultra-light lure, in Yellow Perch pattern, on a test run to see what kind of fish will chase it. I am happy to say that I catch four different species of fish during my test, including some bass and big white perch. Check out my video!

Also, while canoe fishing, I catch the smallest Striped Bass ever! Perhaps I am on my way to catch more Stripers in the near future.

small vs big crankbait challenge

Which lure catches more fish, a small or big crankbait? I do a personal challenge by using both a micro Bagley Rattlin Honey B and a Rapala BX Brat, and see which gets more Bass and Bluegill. Note: This is not a scientific test, but just having a fun activity while fishing.

Check out my video challenge!

using hummingbird to find fishing spots

‪If you go to a lake or river that you are not familiar with, using a fish finder is a useful tool. It helps to let you know how deep the water is, what the structure is below, and the temperature, not to mention if there are fish in the area. Today, I use the Humminbird Fish Finder and see if I can find some good spots to catch fish.‬

See how I use a depth finder in action in my video :)  Also, in this video, I catch the biggest Pumpkinseed Sunfish!

canoe panfishing on windy day

Have you wondered if there are fish around on a day of high winds (20+ mph)? If you like to go canoe and kayak fishing and can brave the choppy waters, I would recommend to find the protected part of the lake for the best enjoyment of being out in the elements.

I take this challenge and try my best to find panfish. Will I succeed? Watch my video and find out!

Thank you for watching!

telescoping travel rod

Fishing rods are very long and can be cumbersome to carry around. Have no fear, I found a rod that is collapsible and portable. This 7-foot long Telescoping Rod by Kastking can pack down to under 22 inches! I originally got it so that I can travel more easily on a plane because the rod fits nicely in your luggage. However, with the virus scare going on, I am not planning to fly anytime soon. So, now I just use the travel rod more locally. It is nice to just stash it in the car and be ready whenever I feel like going to a nearby pond.

Check out my test and review video :)

Also, in the video, I encounter a young Raccoon, while I am canoeing. The little raccoon is interested in me. He stares and keeps scratching. Itchy are we?

will fish eat pink worms

While canoe fishing, I try out a product that is an artificial worm that is colored hot pink. Do you think fish like the color pink? It even has a scent of bubble gum flavor. Yum! You have to see it to believe it.

Plus, I see a funny sight. Did you know a goose can flip upside down?

Check out my video and enjoy!

gopro8_test_for_paddling

Hey everybody! In a previous outdoor video, I had tested the GoPro Hero 8 Black while biking. This time, I try it out while canoe paddling. I test the video quality, image stabilization and waterproof features of the action camera. While on the water, I catch (and release) a big bass.

Is the small but expensive gadget worth the price? Watch the camera in action in my video. Enjoy!

It is a New Year, a whole New Decade, and it is a good time to look back at some favorite fishing memories. I reminisce and share three special moments that are some of my personal best catches. Plus, I talk about why I believe we like to fish.
