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.

Thanks for watching!

On an ominous foggy winter day, I go canoe fishing and use the Humminbird Fishing Buddy 120 to help me find a fish in a barren lake. It is hard to spot any fish in this cold water because they are all gone, dispersed or simply lethargic. Eventually, I do catch a nice fish, and its a new species for me! What do you think I catch?

By the way, remember the Kingfisher I had mentioned in my previous post? Well, I feature the sighting of that very bird, as it is scouting for food, in my video. Luckily, I have my camera and that is how I am able to draw a rendition of the little critter (when I got home later).

In a way, the Kingfisher and I compete to catch a fish. Who will win this competition? Check out my video and enjoy!

While I was fishing the other day, a bird, perched over the water, caught my eye. At first, I thought it was a Blue Jay because, well, it was blue, and it had a crest on its head. But then, it made a nice subtle chirping. Blue Jays actually make a loud alarming sound. So I knew this bird was different.

I continued to fish. An hour or so later, I saw the bird again. This time, the bird had a Bluegill in its mouth. The bluegill was almost as big as the bird itself! I suddenly realized that this bird is a Kingfisher!

I’ve seen nature shows that featured kingfishers and how good they are at catching their food from the water. And here it is right before my eyes. In honor of the sighting, I just had to draw the cute little bugger (when I got home).

Sorry to get so excited but I always wanted to see this amazing little bird in person. Plus, I am a birder enthusiast AND I love fishing. Birds that are made for catching fish are a win-win in my book :)
