Largemouth Bass literally have big mouths that can open as wide as their heads. So is it any surprise that they have voracious appetites? Not only do Largemouth Bass eat other fish, but they are also known to eat frogs, crayfish and even mice that happen to wander near the shoreline of a riverbank. In my illustration (above), I depict a Bass being very aggressive and is pursuing a rather big Bluegill Sunfish. Under the water, just like on land, it is survival of the fittest in the animal kingdom.

This Hungry Bass print is now available at my shop. Check it out :)

If you are interested in Fishing, here is a video where I was lucky enough to catch (and release) some nice-sized Bass while canoeing on a pristine remote lake.

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.
