On this warmish Autumn day, I do canoe/kayak fishing for panfish. I test which bait performs better, a short Powerbait Floating Trout Worm (1.5 inches) or a long Reins Shaker worm (2.5 inches). The trick is to find out what the fish want, from day to day. Watch what happens in my video as I try both worms out.

Plus, I see several happy Painted Turtles enjoying this Indian Summer Day in the Fall time.

Thanks for watching!

While canoe fishing, I test out the Berkley Powerbait Power Grubs 2-inch, in white color. Can I catch Panfish with the bait, or is it too big?

Plus, I see a White Pekin Duck that is a rare sight in my local park, let alone my area. Watch the duck and it’s sexy waddle!

Check out my test of this versatile artificial lure in my video!

Did you know that fish like to eat cheese? Well, there is a Berkley Gulp Pinched Crawler that is infused with cheese flavor. I test and review the bait to see if it can catch Crappie fish.

Also, have you ever heard a bird that can chirp 1000 different songs? Listen to a Brown Thrasher!

Join me and let’s see if this artificial lure can catch fish in my video!

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!

It is almost spring time and that means fishing opportunities abound. I recently attended a fishing convention and I discover three top innovative lures for Bass Fishing. I also learn the popularity of the Ned Rig from Go Go Gomez, and the effective Dropshot technique from Bass Pro Shaw Grigsby. In my goodie bag, I share a few more finds, I got from the show, such as Jackall soft plastics.

What lure fires up a Bass to bite? Today, I do a mini challenge to see what the fish are attracted to – a small or a big crankbait, both are by Bagley brand. Crankbaits emulate a scurrying fish when being retrieved in the water. I really like Bagley brand lures because they come in bright neon colors. They almost belong in a Mardi Gras parade! And it is a parade for me when I catch a fish :)

Plus, while I am on the river, I am pleasantly surprised by the presence of a rare endangered bird. It is a sighting of a Peregrine Falcon! You may not know it but I am an aspiring birdwatcher. (I have a bunch of bird feeders outside my window. And I like to see if I can name the birds that visit my deck.)

In my neck of the woods, Peregrine Falcons used to flourish before industrialization, living on the towering cliffs of the Hudson River and the Delaware Water Gap. Then, Peregrines were threatened due to heavy use of pesticides, like DDT, that seeped into the rivers, and drinking water, making their eggs so brittle that babies would not survive. Thankfully, DDT was banned in the 1970s and Peregrine Falcon populations are healthier and returning.

The falcon that I see is very big and fluffy, because it is a female, and females are much bigger than the males. In the distance, if you listen carefully, you can hear the babies. I am blessed to capture her on video perched, while drinking water from the river, and in flight.

Check out my short video, and let me know what you think.
