So I always wondered how fishing leeches would work for the trout. Since quite often when I catch them they often have leeches in their stomach or a few in their mouth. Well I had some left over leeches I had picked along the shore and decided to take them out to the pond. It actually was working really well... but I was getting lots of missed strikes and missed a few hook ups off camera. Well this is what happened. So if you have some leeches laying around and heading to the trout pond give them a try. There were a bunch of people fishing and I didn't see any others caught while there. Lots of surface action. Actually as I walked out a guy on the belly boat was getting some action on the fly. But regardless this leech was getting lots of attention. I probably should have put in to a deeper depth to get into the larger fish. Shoulda coulda woulda... just not enough time and I was getting action just not solid bites. I think they were pulling the leech and missing the hook.
North Saskatchewan River fishing on a jet boat for walleye, suckers, goldeye and mooneye. All bycatch of sturgeon fishing out on the river. Keeps things interesting while you Are waiting for the sturgeon to take the bait. All fish were caught on minnows or night crawlers.
Sometimes hitting up a lake with lots of small pike and walleye can be just what the Doctor ordered. They may not be big but fish after fish action often keeps new anglers and kids very interested on the water. During this video my Dad and I are fishing a lake we both grew up going to, but haven't been to in years. Turns out the fish haven't changed and it's still fast action of tiny pike and decent walleye.
The North Saskatchewan River is a great place to search for all kinds of fish including the Lake Sturgeon. These fish grow to very large sizes and sometimes reach over and 100 pounds. They are an excellent fighting fish and often clear the water as the jump during long runs up and down river. Powerful fish. In this video an online fishing buddy Jared takes us out to a sturgeon hole on his jet boat. While we only caught two sturgeon we had a great day catching lots of other fish and watching several sturgeon roll on the surface in the area. If you want to head out I hope this video can help you find a sturgeon and show how a Deeper sonar can help you find the Deeper holes in the river where the sturgeon prefer to live. I was pretty excited to get my first sturgeon even if it wasn't a giant.
I was recently introduced to a new fishing company called Piscifun. One of there specialties is high quality fishing reels with prices that won't break the bank. In this video I am describing the features of the Honor 3000 Spinning reel and taking it out on the lake for the first spin. I am fishing for walleye on a tough bite day, but with the help of my deeper sonar I am able to find the fish and slow things right down in order convince some to bite. The action goes a little crazy and this reel is everything I need to get the job done. I am really happy with this reel. It feels great, cranks great and has a silky smooth drag.

My First Ever Smallmouth Bass Fishing Adventure Takes Place on Vancouver Island with Matt Benson, Cabela's Pro Staff, from the Youtube Channel Brackish Water Outdoors. He had been inviting me to come out for the last couple of years since I moved to Canada and the stars finally aligned and we were able to connect on an AMAZING day to get out and fish the early spring pre-spawn bite. The fish had really transitioned from the week prior and had now moved up in shallower water waiting to move up at start making nests. We found most of the fish by fishing docks on the sunny shorelines where the water temperature was the highest. The fish were slow though as a high pressure system had them a little tight lippled. The finesse drop shot with a green and white shad shaped worm was the ticket and it was FISH ON once Matt got things worked out. The rest is history. What an absolute blast we had out there. Check out the video and I'm sure you'll agree.
Unfortunately on the last trip of the Ice season of 2016/17 I got quite sick and didn't end up fishing at many days as I would have liked... had to chill at home for the last day with the rest of the sick family. It didn't stop me from getting out and catching some more walleye before I called it quits for the season. This evening we were out on Slave Lake. This was located right beside The Ice Shack that you may have seen us fishing in during a previous video.
This past March our Buddy Russel met up with us and took us along to a great little perch lake back in the bush. We had a tough day of fishing as the larger fish were off on vacation somewhere. Still had a great time out on the ice and caught a bunch of nice perch. They seemed to come through in waves and lulls. Check out these beautiful perch.
Ice fishing in Alberta in early March during a cold high pressure system out on Lesser Slave Lake. Headed onto the ice with some friends and family to try our luck in and around The Ice Shack. It was fairly cold and the bite was pretty slow. You'll see on the underwater camera that these walleye were in a totally off mood and most were just nudging the lures. It was good we had a nice place to warm up because those long spring days can get a little chilly. Fortunately around 4 PM the fish started to move in more consistently and we managed a nice limit for the 5 of us out on the ice that day with a great bonus Pike and a fat catch and release walleye. Hope you enjoy this video. As you will see we sure enjoyed our time out ice fishing in the shack watching the underwater camera on the big screen. Fishing just became a spectator sport! The underwater camera on the TV was a lot of fun.
Here is how to set up an I FISH PRO tip up for Northern Pike or any other type of fish. All you will need it a rod with a bobber stop on the line and everything else you need comes with the I FISH PRO. Here is my out of the package set up experience and first fish ever caught on the I FISH PRO for me. It works well.
