Hey everybody. It’s 4th of July weekend. Let’s get outside and do something :) For me, it will be canoeing and fishing. When fishing, it is fun to seek multi-species, three or more kinds of fish, which makes it a Grand Slam. Yes, just like in baseball. It is a term adopted for Florida fishing where one tries to catch a variety of fish in one day, such as Tarpon, Sea Trout, Snook and Red Fish. I don’t live in Florida, unfortunately, but in my short video, I like to challenge myself by catching four types of fish, in my local freshwaters, including Sunfish, Rock bass, Smallmouth and Largemouth.

Also, in my video, I meet a Snapping Turtle that is not afraid of me. At first, he looks like he is dead, very still, but he is just very sleepy and content by basking under the sun.

I did a short video which has a touch of Halloween in it, called Tiny River Monster: Red Breast Sunfish. It is my little spoof on the series that appears on Nat Geo. (My video even includes an instrumental song I composed which seems to fit perfectly to the scary theme.) Happy Halloween!

If you went fishing as a child and caught your first fish, chances are, that fish was a Bluegill. They are easily caught using a worm on a hook, sinker and bobber. Bluegill are a very common fish in North America, part of the sunfish family. They prefer slow moving waters with plenty of vegetation so that they can hide from larger, quicker predatory fish, like Bass or Pike.

It was fun for me to illustrate the bluegill, because however small they may be, the fish possesses a nice spectrum of colors, much more than just blue.

Do you remember the first fish you caught?
