While fishing for Bluegill and Panfish, I catch My First Carp by chance! I use a 6 1/2 foot long Fenwick Eagle 2-piece rod, 8 pound line and size 10 circle hook on a dropshot rig. I believe I am able to catch and reel in this awesome fish because I use a worm, the water is murky, and I handle it nice and slowly.

Check out my action-packed video.

As a bass fisherman, perhaps I caught lightening in a bottle? If you caught a fish in an unconventional way, let me know in the comments.

using hummingbird to find fishing spots

‪If you go to a lake or river that you are not familiar with, using a fish finder is a useful tool. It helps to let you know how deep the water is, what the structure is below, and the temperature, not to mention if there are fish in the area. Today, I use the Humminbird Fish Finder and see if I can find some good spots to catch fish.‬

See how I use a depth finder in action in my video :)  Also, in this video, I catch the biggest Pumpkinseed Sunfish!

how i cut my cats nails

And now for something completely different. I made a video of How I Cut My Cat’s Nails. My video channel is mostly about the Outdoors & Nature, so I would like to categorize this one under Animals & Nature? Anyway, I usually spend a lot of time editing my stories, but this cat video is rather straight forward of me talking with my cats.

This is my contribution to the world that always needs fun cat videos. Check out my short video . Let me know what you think. Enjoy!

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.

basking log for pet turtles

When caring for Turtles or any reptile, provide a spot for basking under a heat lamp and UV lamp. Even better, position the aquarium near a window for natural sunlight, if possible. In this video, I try out two kinds of log platforms – fake and real options, which turtles can enjoy and rest between swimming in the tank. Check out my video and enjoy!

The following gear are used in my video:
Zoo Med 78098 Turtle Dock (X-Large)
Zoo Med Turtle Dock (Large)
Zoo Med Turtle Dock (Medium)
(2 Pack) Exo Terra Swamp Glo Basking Spot Lamp, 75 Watt
Zoo Med ReptiSun 10.0 UVB Fluorescent Bulb, 15 Watts, 18-Inch
Fluker Farms Repta Clamp Lamp Ceramic 8.5″
Fluval Underwater Filter

clean and condition aquarium

Hey animal lovers. This is my latest short video on caring for your pet turtles. In this episode, I show you an efficient way to clean your aquarium. In addition, I show you how to re-condition the water because, straight out of the tap, levels of chlorine and pH is not the best for turtles, frogs and salamanders to drink and/or swim in. It is an easy step that your pets will appreciate, when being cared for in a tank.

My cat, Mochi, joins in on the action. She wants to be on video too, ya know. Enjoy!

Oh Snap! I saw this Snapping Turtle while I was canoeing. Who knew that Snappers can float? She was giant too. I am glad she wasn’t hungry enough to eat my boat :)

By the way, do you have an aquarium with a pet turtle or fish? Do you ever wonder how to feed your pets while you go away on vacation? Well, you don’t have to hire a costly pet sitter. In my video, I show you a device that dispenses pellet food on a timer and my experience with it. Enjoy!

Enjoy. Thanks for watching!

This is my little drawing of a Red-Eared Turtle, commonly found in the fresh waters of North America. It is inspired by my pet turtles.

It has been a rather cold winter and I made a short video of How to Keep Your Turtle Warm. If you have pet reptiles and an aquarium too, please feel free to check it out: https://youtu.be/yJQiEjiZ5bY

Let me know what you think :)
