On this warmish Autumn day, I do canoe/kayak fishing for panfish. I test which bait performs better, a short Powerbait Floating Trout Worm (1.5 inches) or a long Reins Shaker worm (2.5 inches). The trick is to find out what the fish want, from day to day. Watch what happens in my video as I try both worms out.

Plus, I see several happy Painted Turtles enjoying this Indian Summer Day in the Fall time.

While canoe fishing, I test out the Berkley Powerbait Power Grubs 2-inch, in white color. Can I catch Panfish with the bait, or is it too big?

Plus, I see a White Pekin Duck that is a rare sight in my local park, let alone my area. Watch the duck and it’s sexy waddle!

Check out my test of this versatile artificial lure in my video!

For fishing, I mainly use Daiwa reels, which is my favorite, but I want to try a different, yet comparable spinning reel by the brand Lews. I test out the new Lews Custom Pro Reel, TLC-3000, paired with my St. Croix rod, to catch my first few bass on the setup. Check out my video to see how the new reel fairs.

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!

Thank you for watching everybody!

While canoe/kayak fishing, I put Fenwick Eagle 2-Piece rod to the test to see if I can pull in a powerful fish. The quality spinning rod is medium fast with excellent feedback, but how is its strength? I hope to catch a bass, but I end up fighting a fish that is even stronger, heavier and quite possibly my personal best in weight!

Plus, I get a sighting of several Bald Eagles, flying, perched and… walking?!

Check out my video, and enjoy.

This is a 2-for-1 video for those who like to go bicycling, including a test of the Yakima Fork Chop accessory, and my hot pick of a bike path on the Erie Canal. The Fork Chop is a simple attachment for carrying a bicycle on your Yakima car rack. If you like multi-day bike rides, then the 350-mile long Erie Canal Bikeway is for you, and I give you a sampler of the Mohawk-Hudson section near Schenectady, New York.

Also, in this video, I take a closer look at the amazing Dam & Lock system on the Mohawk River, and I try a little quick fishing.

Check out my review of the Yakima Jetstream Bike Rack Review also.

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.

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.

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 fish go for ultralight rippin rap

For fishing, I like using the Rippin’ Rap lipless crankbait, by Rapala, to cover a lot of water, and I found a miniature version. I take the size 4 ultra-light lure, in Yellow Perch pattern, on a test run to see what kind of fish will chase it. I am happy to say that I catch four different species of fish during my test, including some bass and big white perch. Check out my video!

Also, while canoe fishing, I catch the smallest Striped Bass ever! Perhaps I am on my way to catch more Stripers in the near future.
