It’s the peak of summer and what a great time to get outdoors, albeit rather humid lately. I like to cool off by going on the water to do canoeing. Today, I use a strange moving lure called a Scatter Rap by Rapala. Instead of wiggling like a fish, this lure wobbles. If you stop and jerk the retrieve, it actually darts around and gives a different look to predatory fish. Check out my short video of a couple of big bass that I catch and release.

Plus, my cat, Mochi, makes a cameo in the video, where she has a staring contest with a deer, just outside our window, not once… but twice!

One a day I have trouble catching bass with various presentations, I decide to use a new lure by Rapala. It is a crank bait that emulates the look of a bait fish called a Shad. When retrieving the lure in the water, it has a vibrating swimming action that catches the attention of predatory fish. The coloration I am using is silver which reflects under the sun and has a red under belly as if it is injured. Is it successful in getting Bass? Check out my short video where I test out this new fishing product. Enjoy!

Plus, in the video, I meet a lonely goose and I make some fun references to Game of Thrones :)

While canoeing in the Upstate New York, I made a short video about my search of the elusive Loon bird. During the trip, I also visit an Outdoor Store, go Camping, and do some Fishing. Plus, I catch a new fish, my first Chub. Check it out and Enjoy!

Have you ever heard a Loon call?

Oh Snap! I saw this Snapping Turtle while I was canoeing. Who knew that Snappers can float? She was giant too. I am glad she wasn’t hungry enough to eat my boat :)

By the way, do you have an aquarium with a pet turtle or fish? Do you ever wonder how to feed your pets while you go away on vacation? Well, you don’t have to hire a costly pet sitter. In my video, I show you a device that dispenses pellet food on a timer and my experience with it. Enjoy!

video: tiny river monster

October 20, 2018

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!

This is my little drawing of a Red-Eared Turtle, commonly found in the fresh waters of North America. It is inspired by my pet turtles.

It has been a rather cold winter and I made a short video of How to Keep Your Turtle Warm. If you have pet reptiles and an aquarium too, please feel free to check it out: https://youtu.be/yJQiEjiZ5bY

Let me know what you think :)
