At a small creek, I carefully cast my line around heavy tree cover to find aggressive Bluegill. Then, later, in the video, I test out the Berkley Powerbait Trout Worm, fake lure presentation, to see if it entices bites from fish. Am I able to catch anything in a shallow stream? Watch and find out :)

I have to abbreviate the fun due to an oncoming rainstorm and dangerous thunder. However, before that, I get nice underwater footage of a young Snapping Turtle that is curious about my camera and fishing activity. I never thought I would say that a Snapper is cute. But this turtle is truly cute!

Check out my video.

What makes the Ned Rig so successful? The secret is in the short, but fat size of the soft plastic which is perfect, under 3-iinches, for catching Bass and even aggressive Sunfish. Instead of using the rubber worm in the traditional Ned Rig method, I simply put the bait on a weedless Keitech hook and just watch the fish jump on it!

Plus, in this video, I get my first sighting of a live eel. A very interesting looking creature to see in person.

Check out my video.
Enjoy and Happy Labor Day weekend everybody!

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.

using hummingbird to find fishing spots

‪If you go to a lake or river that you are not familiar with, using a fish finder is a useful tool. It helps to let you know how deep the water is, what the structure is below, and the temperature, not to mention if there are fish in the area. Today, I use the Humminbird Fish Finder and see if I can find some good spots to catch fish.‬

See how I use a depth finder in action in my video :)  Also, in this video, I catch the biggest Pumpkinseed Sunfish!

canoe panfishing on windy day

Have you wondered if there are fish around on a day of high winds (20+ mph)? If you like to go canoe and kayak fishing and can brave the choppy waters, I would recommend to find the protected part of the lake for the best enjoyment of being out in the elements.

I take this challenge and try my best to find panfish. Will I succeed? Watch my video and find out!

sketch: bluegill

As small as the Bluegill is, this sunfish has an amazing spectrum of colors. It’s like a jewel that is often overlooked and underappreciated from our rivers and lakes. Watch out when giving them a worm while fishing, they have an attitude of a shark!

This is my lazy Sunday sketch. Happy weekend all.

catch smallest bluegill challenge

Remember when you went fishing for Sunfish as a kid? In my video, I relive that experience by catching (and releasing) the small and aggressive species of Bluegill, Red Breast and Pumpkinseed because it is still fun for big kids too. I use light tackle while challenging myself to catch the smallest sunfish.

Largemouth Bass literally have big mouths that can open as wide as their heads. So is it any surprise that they have voracious appetites? Not only do Largemouth Bass eat other fish, but they are also known to eat frogs, crayfish and even mice that happen to wander near the shoreline of a riverbank. In my illustration (above), I depict a Bass being very aggressive and is pursuing a rather big Bluegill Sunfish. Under the water, just like on land, it is survival of the fittest in the animal kingdom.

This Hungry Bass print is now available at my shop. Check it out :)

If you are interested in Fishing, here is a video where I was lucky enough to catch (and release) some nice-sized Bass while canoeing on a pristine remote lake.

st croix travel rod

In my latest Outdoor & Nature video, I test out the strength of a 2-piece travel rod by St. Croix brand. Just to let you know, a 2-piece fishing rod is good for portability, but it is not normally as strong as a 1-piece. I get to see if it can handle aggressive fish from Sunfish to Bass to the powerful Northern Pike!

When I launch my Canoe at a river, it is usually uneventful. But suddenly, I find myself surrounded by thousands of Blackbirds. So in the spirit of Halloween, here is my video. Don’t be too scared. Blackbirds are harmless. Or are they?!

Happy Halloween y’all!

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.
