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?

In this special edition, I take a road trip to the Finger Lakes region of New York State. I camp in a very modern cabin that looks like a tiny house in Buttermilk Falls State Park. On this adventure, I also hike the falls, paddle in the channels of Ithaca, visit the famous Farmers Market and do tiny fishing in Cayuta Lake. Check out my video and enjoy!

drawing: giant tortoise

March 6, 2022

I’ve been meaning to draw a Galapagos Turtle for a while. Here, the Giant Tortoise finds a lone berry tree. The tree is just big enough as a snack for this big turtle’s appetite.

Please feel free to check out my other outdoor and nature drawings at my shop.

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!

When I began fishing as a youngling, I always wondered if fish hide for cover from the bad weather. In this episode, I challenge myself to catch fish on a cold, windy, overcast day, in the fall time. I use the good old live nightcrawler with the intent to catch Carp, which taunt me, but I get surprised by catching a nice-sized White Perch and a Big Bass in a shallow flat part of the lake.

Plus, as a birdwatcher, I like seeing so many Starling birds, feeding and flying in a cluster, this time of year. And I am blessed with a double rainbow in the end!

A friend of mine is going away to college, and I will miss her. She is smart, bubbly and full of energy. Loves to tell me drama stories about life. But best of all, her smile is infectious.

I do a drawing to bid her farewell. She is standing at the foot of the famous Arches, because she loves to travel and to hike too. My illustration symbolizes her free-spirited attitude and to wish good luck on her new adventures.

Did you know that fish like to eat cheese? Well, there is a Berkley Gulp Pinched Crawler that is infused with cheese flavor. I test and review the bait to see if it can catch Crappie fish.

Also, have you ever heard a bird that can chirp 1000 different songs? Listen to a Brown Thrasher!

Join me and let’s see if this artificial lure can catch fish in my video!

Thank you for watching everybody!

Where were you 17 years ago? Well, that is the last time the Brood X bugs were around, making ruckus in the trees. The Cicadas are here! Don’t be afraid. They may look creepy. One may smack you in the head by mistake, when flying clumsily, but they are harmless. They are simply out to look for a mate.

These red-eyed Cicadas are only in certain states on the East coast and the Midwest. So get out there and check them out because you’ll have to wait another 17 years to see them again.

Here’s a drawing I did of one critter, hanging out high in the canopy. Can you hear it buzzing away?

Happy Memorial Weekend all!

Recently, I catch big healthy Yellow Perch in crystal clear waters of a mountain lake. The Yellow Perch I catch in urban waters are much smaller in comparison. Today, I find fish by using my Humminbird Fishin Buddy. I use the Ned Rig and feel bites, then switch to the dropshot.

Check out my video!

Plus, I show off the Humminbird fish finder to my paddling friend and she is impressed by it. Join us in our little adventure.

Thank you for watching everybody!

In this episode of my Bite-sized Fishing Series, it is a cold weather day where I do canoe/kayak fishing for fun panfish. I also give you a tour of My Canoe Setup and show you the gear I carry while on the water.

Plus, my cute lazy cats cameo in my video, and I get a cool sighting of Hooded Merganser Ducks during the late winter.

Thank you for watching everybody!
