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!
Usually from April 16 every year, NY NJ Striped Bass season opens. My favorite fishing spot (I go there every year) is this spot at Huns Point, NY.
For bait, I use squid, clam, and bunker, and this time I found out swimming shad lure can be really good.
Check out some of my striped bass videos below:
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.
This is the video:
Last year, I went to Pequannock River. You can park and go fishing from this location:

I also made a video last year:
It’a always more fun to make it yourself than just buying a ready-made product. So when I got this little turtle, I set out to make its habitat from scratch.
This is the first one I made:
For this one I used sand, thinking that it will remind the turtle of its habitat, but as you might be able to guess, the sheer maintenance required to keep this one clean was basically impossible.
So this is the current set up:
Instead of using sand, we kept it all water with climbable areas, with a filter installed. We also added heating light. Definitely much less maintenance, and the turtle enjoys sun bathing a lot! She also eats right from our hands 🙂
This time I saved some money by fixing by myself our leaky shower faucet. In the video I show you how.
In NJ where we are, the water that comes out of the pipes are so full of minerals that tend to build up easily. It’s definitely better if you can do these repairs by yourself so you’re not calling the repair guys every couple years.
Essentially the repair was to replace the Gerber Shower valve stem.
Got the necessary tools from local Harbor Freight Tools.
If you buy the right tools and install them by yourself, you can seriously save some money as opposed to calling a repair guy 🙂
This time I tried making an action camera mount that can take underwater footage while being attached to a fishing line. One of the cool things about these action cameras is that they come with waterproof casings. I just needed to take advantage of that and wanted to see if the camera can actually catch the moment the fish bites!
I had a lot of fun designing this mount, using some cheap dollar store things and everyday objects that can be found around the house.
Let’s explore the Hobby World with the action camera!
This is the first video I made where I made a custom head mount for the new action camera I bought.
I tried a couple of ready-made head mounts, but I though they made me look like an old school miner, I decided to create my own that looks a bit more slick.
I basically put the mount on a cap I like.
In this video I show you how I did it.
