It is Spring, finally, and that means fish are spawning up the rivers. I am pleasantly surprised by the arrival of Shad while I am pan fishing. so I cast my Rapala Rippin’ Rap in hopes to catch one of these powerful Gizzard Shads! Plus, I take my pet turtle for a walk in the park to get natural sun, and to see the many blossoming flowers. Check out my video!

There is a small window in Springtime to find the peak of The Shad Run, and they are here! It is tricky to get the interest of Shad while they are spawning, so I try out different lures to get their attention and hopefully get bites. It’s not only the grand appearance of the Shad, but also the peak of Cherry Blossoms in full bloom. A double whammy of nature goodness!

Check out the shad and cherry blossom action in my video, and enjoy!

This is officially the longest video I created. Probably because there was so many fish and I couldn’t stop fishing. LOL.

Spring is almost here, and so soon the hibernating animals will emerge.  Sleepy-eyed critters, like aquatic turtles peak their heads from the lake, eager to find a floating log and worship the sun. My red-eared turtle models for this illustration, done in digital medium.
