It is Spring, finally, and that means fish are spawning up the rivers. I am pleasantly surprised by the arrival of Shad while I am pan fishing. so I cast my Rapala Rippin’ Rap in hopes to catch one of these powerful Gizzard Shads! Plus, I take my pet turtle for a walk in the park to get natural sun, and to see the many blossoming flowers. Check out my video!

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?

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!

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.

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.

Here is a bonus video from the recent Fall. I do canoe/kayak fishing, during which I used two tiny baits. One bait is a new Mini Chatterbait from Z-Man, and the other is a piece of Berkley Nightcrawler on a dropshot hook. Each one catches big coldwater fish, including my personal best Largemouth Bass!

In this video, I do my best impression of David Attenborough, from the Blue Planet series. I do narration to create a story-like effect. Let me know how much you like my British accent!

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!

In this Bite-Sized Fishing episode, I cast for various panfish, using a 3-inch Grub by Yum. The fish are modest in size, but all-in-all it is a perfect day to paddle and do some leaf peeping because there is no wind and the water is so calm. I slow things down and enjoy nature, creating a sort of ASMR video to share with you. Check out my outdoor video and let me know what you think.

In addition to the beauty of autumn colors, I see a Piper bird, a Blue Heron and maybe the last Turtle of the year?
