When I go canoe/kayak fishing, I usually have a plan to start small and work my way to bigger fish. I couldn’t have planned it better myself because I catch Bluegill, a Crappie, a Channel Catfish, each being bigger than the last fish. And then end on a lunker of a Monster Bass. Happy Halloween everybody!

In this video, I feature my Largemouth Bass drawing. If you are interested to see more of my artwork, please check out My Shop.

As you may know, I do enjoy fishing. But did you know I like to draw too? When I went canoeing, Largemouth Bass have been elusive to me at the lakes. I only caught a handful this year. So today, I wanted to do a sketch of a lunker of a Bass. I’ve done a bunch of drawings of bass before, but this one I am happiest with because it has a big open mouth in action, and a big fat belly! What do you think?

For fishing, I mainly use Daiwa reels, which is my favorite, but I want to try a different, yet comparable spinning reel by the brand Lews. I test out the new Lews Custom Pro Reel, TLC-3000, paired with my St. Croix rod, to catch my first few bass on the setup. Check out my video to see how the new reel fairs.

While canoe fishing at a new lake, I encounter the Brood X Cicadas! Some people are afraid of these creepy little critters, but they are actually harmless and friendly! Let’s take a closeup look at the amazing bugs that only appear every 17 years, and then go fishing!

Check out my video and enjoy!

It has been a very rainy Spring and on a drizzly overcast day, the fish are hiding from another oncoming storm. As I am tired of waiting for a sunny day, I take the challenge to locate fish, from my canoe/kayak, and end up getting small fish, but it is multi-species fun action! Plus, while on the water, I love seeing turtles, and I get pretty close to an eagle.

Check out my video and enjoy!

Fall time is tricky because fishing patterns are different due to the big drop in water temperature. If you find fish movement is different, then so should your plan of attack too. Keep changing your approach and location until you find out what the fish want and where they are.

I have a slow start to my canoe/kayak fishing outing, but eventually break from my own comfort zone. In the end, I am happy to get a nice Chain Pickerel and some Bass, small and big.

Also, in this video, I meet some carp fishermen and help them get their gear back. And just in time for Halloween, I find a strange-looking Praying Mantis!

At a beautiful pristine clear lake, which is high pressured with motor boat fishing, I use my Humminbird. The fish finder helps me target Sunfish, some micro-sized, in the very large body of water. I am able to catch a nice variety of species, including Bluegill, Longear, Pumpkinseed, Spotted and Green Sunfish. Plus, as a bonus catch, I get a Largemouth Bass, hiding in the depths.

See how I use the fish finder and check out my video.

As the Summer ends and Fall begins, the water temperature cools, affecting the normal habits of Bass. Bass disperse, perhaps going deep or relocating elsewhere. In this video, I explore the water as a personal challenge, in my canoe/kayak, to see if fish can still be found.

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.

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!
