At a small creek, I carefully cast my line around heavy tree cover to find aggressive Bluegill. Then, later, in the video, I test out the Berkley Powerbait Trout Worm, fake lure presentation, to see if it entices bites from fish. Am I able to catch anything in a shallow stream? Watch and find out :)

I have to abbreviate the fun due to an oncoming rainstorm and dangerous thunder. However, before that, I get nice underwater footage of a young Snapping Turtle that is curious about my camera and fishing activity. I never thought I would say that a Snapper is cute. But this turtle is truly cute!

Check out my video.

canoe panfishing on windy day

Have you wondered if there are fish around on a day of high winds (20+ mph)? If you like to go canoe and kayak fishing and can brave the choppy waters, I would recommend to find the protected part of the lake for the best enjoyment of being out in the elements.

I take this challenge and try my best to find panfish. Will I succeed? Watch my video and find out!

drifting worm in creek

Here is a lazy weekend video, simple fishing for Bluegill in a small creek. During this outing, I get some nice surprises. My first Green Sunfish which looks like a miniature version of a Largemouth Bass. It is a new species for me. And I get a nice-sized Smallmouth Bass, hiding among the school of bluegill.

Plus, I see an Egret bird with a fish catch of its own, a baby catfish. The catfish is a little too big to fit in the egret’s throat. Oops!

Feel free to check out my video :)

Happy 4th of July, everybody!

catch smallest bluegill challenge

Remember when you went fishing for Sunfish as a kid? In my video, I relive that experience by catching (and releasing) the small and aggressive species of Bluegill, Red Breast and Pumpkinseed because it is still fun for big kids too. I use light tackle while challenging myself to catch the smallest sunfish.

It is almost spring time and that means fishing opportunities abound. I recently attended a fishing convention and I discover three top innovative lures for Bass Fishing. I also learn the popularity of the Ned Rig from Go Go Gomez, and the effective Dropshot technique from Bass Pro Shaw Grigsby. In my goodie bag, I share a few more finds, I got from the show, such as Jackall soft plastics.

If you like fishing, check out my video!

It is a New Year, a whole New Decade, and it is a good time to look back at some favorite fishing memories. I reminisce and share three special moments that are some of my personal best catches. Plus, I talk about why I believe we like to fish.

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.

eagle_sighting

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!

crappie_by_al_lau

Crappies are a popular North American game fish in the family of sunfish. They can be sought by recreational fishermen and women all year round, even in the winter time because crappies can be active in the cold, unlike bass which become lethargic. The meat of crappie is quite tasty and flaky for a freshwater fish.

The biggest one I caught this spring was 3 pounds at 17-inches in length which is a really good size, though they can be as heavy as 5 pounds. I did release it, so that it could grow that big, someday. I illustrated the species in celebration of my cute crappie.

The summer has begun. Happy Memorial Day all!
