I got a new rod for the new season, the St. Croix travel rod, and I test it out to see if it can handle a big Carp. Let’s see if is strong enough. Plus, wildlife, life a muskrat and turtles, come out from hibernation! I see a beautiful eagle too!

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!

In this episode of my Bite-sized Fishing series, I only have a limited time to go canoe/kayak fishing before sunset. I try using real and fake worms to catch whatever will bite this late Fall, in this quick personal challenge. Which bait will catch the biggest fish? Watch my video and find out!

Plus, my backyard is over-populated by a horde of migrating Starling birds! There are so many that they start attacking my bird feeder.

jigging for bluegill and catfish

On a warm Summer day, I just want to do basic Bluegill fishing at a small pond. Fish love to hide under piers, away from the hot bright sun, so I target Sunfish. In the meantime, I get a pleasant surprise of different species. I catch Channel Catfish too because they are attracted to the commotion of Bluegill around my jigging action. Most of the fish are small, some are even micro-sized, but it is big fun.

Plus, in this video, my cat, Hops, guest stars, showing how he is hungry just like a Bass, but more lovable and huggable.

Please feel free to watch my video.

berkley_gulp_nightcrawler_for_panfish

On a summer day, I fish (catch and release) for Panfish, such as Bluegill and Crappie, using a realistic-looking worm. I test the product to see if the plastic bait, called Berkley Gulp Nightcrawlers, actually work to attract fish. Watch my video and find out :)

In this video, I fish so late into the evening that the Geese fly home and the Bats come out!

June 10, 2010

Although, not normally a subject I would draw, earthworms have become curious creatures to me. I’ve been collecting worms for fishing and composting. They seem like creepy bottom-dwellers, but without worms, the soil would not be fertile for vegetation.
