2 Hours on Rudd Pond

Didn’t have much time today to fish but luckily I live fairly close to an excellent pond.

The bass were fun but unremarkable. The pickerel was pretty nice. The crappie though, was the larges I’ve ever caught.

Catch of the Day (sort of)

Went out to a local lake for 5 hours. Caught 1 perch, 3 crappie and 29 bass. Sounds impressive but the every bass weighed less than 1 pound. What was impressive was this bad boy. That light colored object attached to his back is the shell of fresh water mussel.

Not the best photo but this snapping turtle (Chelydra serpentina) was easily 20 inches long.

Fastest Kayak Loading

Interest in this part of my previous video was so great I’ve posted it as a separate movie. Again, it is shown in real time. If you have an SUV the procedure is the same except that you raise the front a little higher and you only need one towel.

Kayak Fishing on Queechy Lake with Al Lunn

I get a chance to go fishing with life-long fisherman Al Lunn from New York in his new Wavewalk fishing kayak. The day was very windy even though it doesn’t look like it in the movie because we kept moving to protected areas. Despite the wind, Al stood and cast from his W500 like it was second nature.
