Spring is one of best times to catch (and release) fish because of the spawn run. Fish swim up the rivers in May and April. While some target trout and salmon, I try to target Shad and Bass. Check out my short outdoor video and see how I do. Also included, is my first sightings of turtles, out from hibernation, basking in the sun. Enjoy!

While canoeing in the Upstate New York, I made a short video about my search of the elusive Loon bird. During the trip, I also visit an Outdoor Store, go Camping, and do some Fishing. Plus, I catch a new fish, my first Chub. Check it out and Enjoy!

Have you ever heard a Loon call?

I am having cabin fever, so I wanted to draw something outdoorsy like this tandem canoe.

The weather will be above 50 degrees in the coming week, in the Northeast. I hope to get out on the water and do some paddling because the outside is my gym. Being active is good for the body and soul.

When possible, I like to paddle with a friend or family member like in this video with my Uncle. (He is the one who inspired me to do Winter skiing and Summer paddling).

What are you going to do when it warms up? Maybe go walk, hike or cycle? I would love to know :)

I made a short video, showing a new tackle box that is simple and can hold a lot of fishing lures. Plus, my cats choose a lure for me to use to catch Bluegill.

Enjoy. Thanks for watching!

While fishing, I come across an odd sight. Did you know squirrels can swim? My video features me trying to catch a big Northern Pike, and seeing a family of cute baby skunks up close :)  Check it out and enjoy!

road trip: california

March 6, 2009

These photos are from my San Diego to San Francisco road trip, Oct 29 – Nov 10. Sorry for the delay, but now with new blog, I can go into the hard drive archives and share more goodies.

For the last mild weekend (72 degrees) of the year, canoeing on the Delaware River at Pond Eddy is the plan. Pond Eddy is a 2-hour drive from home. It was 3 years ago, when I began this blog. One of my earliest posts included a canoe trip from this same place, Indian Head Canoes at Pond Eddy, on the New York State side. Last time, we were the only ones on the 9-mile trip downriver. This time, there are more people – college kids on inflatable rafts, and a school of kayakers. It costs about $75 for two to rent a canoe. I have a fishing pole, and megaworms, and see some of the largest bass off the side of the canoe, but it is late in the afternoon and nightfall approaches quickly. Plus, the whitewater, although exciting for me, requires attention to navigate. Or else, it would be a hypothermic dip, if we were to capsize.
