Black Fish fishing [VIDEO]

I went out Black Fish fishing for the second time in my life.

First time, I didn’t catch a thing nor feel any fish, but this time, I caught a couple of fish and could actually feel something when the fish hit.

I used live crabs and squid strips as bait.

I was so happy to finally catch some black fish on a boat at the very end of the year 2018! And now I feel confident I can catch some next time around. I will keep trying out different methods to catch more fish. Stay tuned!

Let’s go year 2019!

[VIDEO] Beach Fishing! Fluke

I went fluke fishing on the beach at Great Kills Park in Staten Island. I used squid strips as bait. I did good, but I saw other guys using lures called Gulp lures like this:

Beach fluke fishing definitely requires some skill. I’m still working on it.

Have a happy fishing this summer!

Spring Trout Fishing Begins! [video + map location]

Every sprint, whenever the trout fishing starts, I go to Ramapo River to fish. This is the parking spot and you can go fishing right on the river.

Ice Sledding and Ice fishing! Video

This winter’s been really cold. Some lakes and rivers are completely frozen over, and what does that mean??

Ice sledding and Ice fishing of course 🙂

Remember that one week (in NJ area where I live anyway) when it was like unbelievably cold? The ice was really thick, so I decided to “do-it-yourself” an ice sled and take the kids out for a nice round of sledding on the ice lake ^^

Here’s what happened:

Oh and some obligatory warning for ice sledding is included (for obvious reasons) ^^

I searched for good iced-out lakes in the above process, and found out there’s a pretty decent(?) ice fishing scene in the area. So a couple of weeks later, I went in search of that ice fishing scene:

Winter’s not over yet, and I have a feeling there’s more coming!
