One a day I have trouble catching bass with various presentations, I decide to use a new lure by Rapala. It is a crank bait that emulates the look of a bait fish called a Shad. When retrieving the lure in the water, it has a vibrating swimming action that catches the attention of predatory fish. The coloration I am using is silver which reflects under the sun and has a red under belly as if it is injured. Is it successful in getting Bass? Check out my short video where I test out this new fishing product. Enjoy!

Plus, in the video, I meet a lonely goose and I make some fun references to Game of Thrones :)

I made a short video, showing a new tackle box that is simple and can hold a lot of fishing lures. Plus, my cats choose a lure for me to use to catch Bluegill.

Enjoy. Thanks for watching!

The Jointed Shad lure is segmented, letting the tail swing freely and creating an aggressive swimming action when retrieved. The artificial lure moves at a depth of 4 to 6 feet in the water column, depending on how fast you reel it in.

This is a fourth drawing in my fishing series.

Have a great Labor Day weekend!

One of the trials and tribulations of fishing is getting snagged on weeds.  Ugh.  But then again, getting snagged is a small price to pay.  I’d rather be fishing than be stuck behind the desk or caught in commuting traffic.

Hello spring weather!

I felt like a kid painting Easter eggs when creating these drawings of different style lures.

Have Good Great Friday all.
