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!

As soon as a warm day arrives after a frigid winter, I take the opportunity to canoe kayak with a friend. It is early Spring, but is the water too cold to catch any fish? Check out my latest video! Plus, there are Robins exploring the grass, looking for yummy treats. The early bird catches the worm, right?

I got a new rod for the new season, the St. Croix travel rod, and I test it out to see if it can handle a big Carp. Let’s see if is strong enough. Plus, wildlife, life a muskrat and turtles, come out from hibernation! I see a beautiful eagle too!

In this episode of my Bite-sized Fishing series, I wonder if there are fish in an urban shallow dead canal. I toss a tiny jig with a fake worm to see if there is anything down there. Also in this video, I am surrounded by a variety of birds, big frogs and a turtle, enjoying life near the water.

Check out my action-packed video!

Welcome to my Bite-sized Fishing series in the New Year! This is the latest in the winter season I try to catch Bluegill and Perch, before the lake turns to ice. Plus, I get some sightings of the awesome Kingfisher bird while on the water.

This was filmed in the week after New Years Day when there was a warmish day of 48 degrees. I brave it because there is no wind to ruin my canoeing experience. I simply use a live worm as bait because none of the fish were interested in artificial baits, this time.

In my latest Bite-sized Fishing episode, Panfish like to play Hide and Seek in the late Fall. While Canoe/Kayak Fishing, I cast light tackle to different kinds of structure with a real worm and artificial bait. Can you guess which spots are holding fish?

Plus, I encounter a couple of young male deer and they put on a show for me. The bucks lock horns!

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.

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.

In this Bite-Sized Fishing episode, I use different fishing techniques for multi-species such as White Perch, Bluegill and Catfish. I show you how to hold a Catfish safely, because they can stab you with their fins. Plus, I remove someone’s old discarded fishing line from the lake. Enjoy!

Thank you for watching everybody!

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!
