When I go canoe/kayak fishing, I usually have a plan to start small and work my way to bigger fish. I couldn’t have planned it better myself because I catch Bluegill, a Crappie, a Channel Catfish, each being bigger than the last fish. And then end on a lunker of a Monster Bass. Happy Halloween everybody!

In this video, I feature my Largemouth Bass drawing. If you are interested to see more of my artwork, please check out My Shop.

In this Bite-Sized Fishing episode, I use different fishing techniques for multi-species such as White Perch, Bluegill and Catfish. I show you how to hold a Catfish safely, because they can stab you with their fins. Plus, I remove someone’s old discarded fishing line from the lake. Enjoy!

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!

It has been a very rainy Spring and on a drizzly overcast day, the fish are hiding from another oncoming storm. As I am tired of waiting for a sunny day, I take the challenge to locate fish, from my canoe/kayak, and end up getting small fish, but it is multi-species fun action! Plus, while on the water, I love seeing turtles, and I get pretty close to an eagle.

Check out my video and enjoy!

There is a small window in Springtime to find the peak of The Shad Run, and they are here! It is tricky to get the interest of Shad while they are spawning, so I try out different lures to get their attention and hopefully get bites. It’s not only the grand appearance of the Shad, but also the peak of Cherry Blossoms in full bloom. A double whammy of nature goodness!

Check out the shad and cherry blossom action in my video, and enjoy!

This is officially the longest video I created. Probably because there was so many fish and I couldn’t stop fishing. LOL.

drawing: the kingfisher

February 22, 2021

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 :)

sketch: yellow perch

December 12, 2020

The Yellow Perch is a fish species found in North American rivers and lakes. They are a beautiful fish adorned with orange fins and a tiger-like pattern on its body. They are a cold-water fish, so they can be enjoyed for sporting well into the winter for ice fishing. Yellow Perch are probably the best tasting freshwater fish too, especially cooked in a fish fry.

This is my sketch of a Yellow Perch in all its vivid glory. I feature my drawing in my fishing video on my channel, about panfishing with fake maggots. Check it out if you haven’t already! My video is action-packed!

I found a jar of bait that looked interesting. It contained the smallest bait I ever saw, Maggots that are foamy and infused with a vinegar-type scent to attract fish.

Do you think Panfish will eat these tiny fake maggots? Watch and find out as I put them to the test while canoe/kayak fishing.

Also, in this video, I come across a passionate fisherman who used to be a guide. Plus, I include some footage of my cat who loves to watch nature on TV and look outside the window.

Fall time is tricky because fishing patterns are different due to the big drop in water temperature. If you find fish movement is different, then so should your plan of attack too. Keep changing your approach and location until you find out what the fish want and where they are.

I have a slow start to my canoe/kayak fishing outing, but eventually break from my own comfort zone. In the end, I am happy to get a nice Chain Pickerel and some Bass, small and big.

Also, in this video, I meet some carp fishermen and help them get their gear back. And just in time for Halloween, I find a strange-looking Praying Mantis!

The classic and old reliable lure for catching Northern Pike is the Inline Spinner “Black Fury” by Mepps. Once you hook onto an aggressive Pike, get ready for a long battle. There is no guarantee you will land the strong predatory fish but the big treble hook gives you a fighting chance.

In this video, there is good news and bad news. The bad news: I catch a pike with the spinner, but then lose it. The good news: I get a second chance!
