smallest fish in cape cod

Do you like the beach and lighthouses? Well, have you ever been to Cape Cod or thinking about going there? Here, I do a mini travel guide and show you a sampler, recommending 5 Fun Things To Do in the Cape, featuring the following; Visiting a lighthouse, biking on the Cape Cod Rail Trail, paddling on the Bass River, walking in the bay at low tide and touring the Truro Vineyard/Distillery. Plus, I catch the smallest saltwater fish I ever saw. What kind of fish is it?

Check out my short video which is a supplement to last week’s Shark posting. (No dangerous sharks included here.) Please let me know what you think. Enjoy!

Whenever I prepare my gear to go fishing, my cat likes to watch me. Not just because there is line involved, but because my tackle makes little clicking sounds I guess. So I make a fishing pole cat toy for play. He likes fishing too! Check out my short video :) Today, I go for pan fish including Bluegill, Yellow Perch and Crappie.

It’s a long holiday weekend, so get out and enjoy!

It’s the peak of summer and what a great time to get outdoors, albeit rather humid lately. I like to cool off by going on the water to do canoeing. Today, I use a strange moving lure called a Scatter Rap by Rapala. Instead of wiggling like a fish, this lure wobbles. If you stop and jerk the retrieve, it actually darts around and gives a different look to predatory fish. Check out my short video of a couple of big bass that I catch and release.

Plus, my cat, Mochi, makes a cameo in the video, where she has a staring contest with a deer, just outside our window, not once… but twice!

Hey everybody. It’s 4th of July weekend. Let’s get outside and do something :) For me, it will be canoeing and fishing. When fishing, it is fun to seek multi-species, three or more kinds of fish, which makes it a Grand Slam. Yes, just like in baseball. It is a term adopted for Florida fishing where one tries to catch a variety of fish in one day, such as Tarpon, Sea Trout, Snook and Red Fish. I don’t live in Florida, unfortunately, but in my short video, I like to challenge myself by catching four types of fish, in my local freshwaters, including Sunfish, Rock bass, Smallmouth and Largemouth.

Also, in my video, I meet a Snapping Turtle that is not afraid of me. At first, he looks like he is dead, very still, but he is just very sleepy and content by basking under the sun.

I did a cartoon drawing of camping for my friend’s birthday card. We used to camp together in great locations such as Cape Cod and Cape May. Unfortunately, he moved away which makes it more difficult to plan a trip. But alas, I still love to go camping. My most recent camping trip is to upstate New York. I have the chance to cook on the portable stove, tour a small town, do some canoe fishing and simply breathe the fresh air. If you like the outdoors and camping, check out my short video .  What is your favorite thing to do when camping? Let me know :)

While Canoeing recently, I experience two wonders. I catch and hold a giant 5 pound Bass (and release). And then, I am so glad I have my binoculars because I’m blessed with a sighting of majestic bald Eagles. The eagles had created an enormous nest as they are soon-to-be parents of baby eagles :)

Happy Memorial Weekend Everybody!

One a day I have trouble catching bass with various presentations, I decide to use a new lure by Rapala. It is a crank bait that emulates the look of a bait fish called a Shad. When retrieving the lure in the water, it has a vibrating swimming action that catches the attention of predatory fish. The coloration I am using is silver which reflects under the sun and has a red under belly as if it is injured. Is it successful in getting Bass? Check out my short video where I test out this new fishing product. Enjoy!

Plus, in the video, I meet a lonely goose and I make some fun references to Game of Thrones :)
