Heaviest Pickerel Ever!


I got out for a short while to a nearby lake. Overall, the fishing was just okay until I hooked into this beauty:

First Action Video of the Year

Here is four hours condensed into four minutes.

There is just nothing like fishing from a Wavewalk when it comes to “going where the fish are” Hope you enjoy it.

Quick video at Mudge Pond.

I was able to beat the wind for a couple of hours and catch a few fish at Mudge Pond.

 

 

 

 

 

Big Lineup At Pilgrim Lake

I just spent 8 days in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The weather was terrible for the first 4; relentless wind and rain such that I didn’t want to fish. The next 4 days were just incredibly windy so I went out for a few hours early each day. Considering the conditions, my Wavewalk made paddling and positioning easy. The result? My best catch ever of big bass and pickerel. Fish when you can!

Note that I just purchased the Plano Expandable Bump Board that you see in each shot. It keeps you honest, if you like that sort of thing! 🙂

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.

Where Are the Bass?

The weather has been crazy this summer and cut my fishing time in half. Still, I’ve had a few very fine days out on the water, as you can see in the video below.

My Wavewalk fishing kayak let’s me pursue the bass no matter how thick the vegetation gets.

Fight, Fight, Fight!

A brief and somewhat shaky film of a large pickerel thrashing away in some stunningly clear water. Shot from my Razr phone, it is a reminder to always bring a real camera.

Prospect Lake Delivers, Again!

Spent 3 hours of Saturday morning on the closest lake to my house and caught about ten bass (4 at 2 pounds or better), 6 pickerel and a 12 inch yellow perch! The big perch smashed a 5 inch paddletail.

It is worth noting that I could not fish here at all until I got my Wavewalk as it is a Canoes & Kayaks Only lake for non-residents.
