Just My Luck

One day right before Largemouth season officially opens and I go and get this beauty!  Enjoy the video folks! 

video

RIG
Simple large cam action style hook with about 3/8 oz. of split shot sinkers located a good 10-12 inches above the hook.  A very simple, basic bottom feeder set up that work really well.  I didn't expect a Large Mouth Bass on my line, just a few trout or some cats.  But hey, it works!

BAIT
Nightcrawlers I picked up at a Stewart's gas station.  They make really good sandwiches, although this time they didn't have any horseradish sauce for the roast beef.  I had to make due with just mayo.  

LOCATION
Theresa New York along the banks of the Indian River.  A very beautiful place to sit and fish or to take out a canoe and go enjoy nature.  The video above shows the second location, the first one being a little bit south of the bridge (the green area) and a pain to get to.  

video Here is where I first set up in Santway Park.  It was a pain climbing down and back up what with all the moss covered rocks and the wet leaves.  Good thing was there were very few mosquitoes.

It's Trout Season!

IT'S TROUT SEASON!

video

So I took the opportunity today to go out and enjoy the fine springtime weather that we are all having up here in Northern New York.  The video above is the results of my fishing expedition along the Black River, just a little south of Great Bend, NY.  



The particular spot I chose is a little favorite of mine (so don't tell anybody!) on the west river bank.  Here the water is not moving too rough because the rocks form a little pocket away from the main current.  There is a nice parking area  for a nature trail just before the Bridge on Highway 26.  

THE RIG

Nothing more than a  simple Eagle Claw trout rig that you can get at Wal-Mart for $1.39.  What I did was that, instead of using the size 6 snelled hooks that come with the rig, I  used a yellow floating jig for my nightcrawler.  

I have always had good luck with a yellow floating jig.  I think its because trout love yellow.

I like these things because it solves the problem of trying to keep your bait from getting tangled in the sinker line.  

THE BAIT

Can of worms.  (Seriously, this is trout fishing, not rocket surgery.)

NOTICE

I would like to start off by saying to the three people who ever bothered to read this website, that my previous commitments have been completed.  I will return to my primary purpose for this blog post, fishing in New York.
