"Surprise"

Returning client Harry, received a surprise birthday gift from his wife Susan....a Legends Outdoors trip out on scenic Lake Wallenpauapack.  Harry took along his son Ryan and friend Sebastian on the adventure.  They had a chilly morning, but the sun quickly warmed up the spring day to make it absolutely comfortable fishing weather.  The trio used a steady diet of Keitech Baits and had a good day of numbers by catching well into the double digits of a combination of smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, and panfish.  They were all smiles as they had plenty of great conversations, laughs and cold beverages during the trip.  We would like to thank Susan for setting up the trip and wish Harry once again a very Happy Birthday.

Rob & John's Mother's Day Adventure

Rob took his annual Mother's Day adventure out with Legends Outdoors on Lake Wallenpaupack.  This year he brought along uncle John for the voyage.  The weather was decent, but a bit on the windy side.  They peppered the lake with a steady diet of Keitech Baits and had some decent action.  Uncle John had a nice battle from a big 5# walleye that took his offering and posed for a photo.  They also caught some panfish and smallmouth bass in the mix on this day.  Some great conversations were had on the boat about hunting, fishing, and recipes for outdoor cooking.  Rob's father was also kind enough to engrave a mug with the "Legends Outdoors" logo on it as he does this as a hobby and we are grateful for the thoughtful gift as it will be used proudly.  We look forward to seeing Rob and his fishing companions in 2024 for his annual Mother's Day adventure.

Big Bait Trip 2023

Alex, Legends Outdoors faithful-enjoys throwing big baits such as swimbaits, glide baits, etc.  A traditional spring trip set up by he and his friend Joe was to throw nothing under the 4" minimum parameters.  This annual tradition continued for Alex as he and his father Scott set out for three days of fishing.  Scott was subject to using any sized bait as he was not held to the standard that Alex had set forth.  Day one was extremely windy with gusts that hit near 30 MPH from a southerly direction that limited the anglers in locations, but they made due and caught a few largemouth bass (one that exceeded the 4# mark), a common carp that ate a 5" Keitech Easy Shiner that weighed in at 9.21#, and several panfish.  Day two seen a chilly and overcast morning eventually turning into sunny and breezy for the father/son duo as they set out.  It didn't take long for the action to start as Scott got into a plump largemouth right out of the gates that weighed in at over 4#.  They proceeded to catch several more largemouth bass, a few smallmouth bass, two tiger musky, and a few panfish. Their day three was extremely calm and chilly in the morning as a cold rain had come in the evening before and this would be the clearing out day for that storm front.  The bite was fickle early on, but the anglers would figure it out as they had themselves a grand day of fishing by catching smallmouth bass (a couple that were over 4#), nice perch and rockbass to round out their trip.  Three awesome days of fishing and family fun for Alex and Scott and we look forward to seeing them back in 2024 for their annual adventure.

Springtime Slab Crappies

Chef Dave and Chrissy went on their annual spring panfish excursion recently in the month of May.  They had extraordinary weather with a light chop, blue skies, and comfortable temperatures.  This ideal spring day would be one to remember as Dave and Chrissy had outstanding action all day long!  They used a heavy diet of Keitech to entice dozens upon dozens of strikes.  Not only were the fish eating well, but the clients and guide were also as chef prepared pecan chicken sliders that consisted of diced grilled chicken, pecans, diced apples, sliced grapes and chefs own special mixed seasoning all tossed in a creamy mayonnaise.  Chef also brought along some deep fried strips of snakehead for everyone to try along with the sliders.  What an overall day it was as they pair caught several dozen crappies with a couple exceeding the 15" & 16" length.  They also caught a few bluegill, perch, and a couple gamefish that were added to the mix during the day.  We look forward to seeing Dave and Chrissy again later this season for another outdoor adventure.

Spiderman Mike's Crew

Spiderman Mike and his crew strolled out onto Lake Wallenpaupack in the Legends Outdoors Pontoon Boat on a sunny May Day.  The weather was warm and the waters were like glass the entire time as the group of four embarked on what would be an outstanding day of fishing and fun.  They strictly used plastics in their approach and had hours and hours of great action.  The pulled in game fish after game fish……. including 18 striped bass, a huge pickerel that exceeded 27”, some really nice smallmouth bass, and for a bonus…a good sized largemouth bass.  Amid all the rod bending and drag screaming action they jammed out to some music, had some cold beverages, and shared in great conversations.  It will be a day to remember for this group and we look forward to seeing Mike and his crew back again for another outdoor adventure.

Michelle & Rob

Michelle and her brother-in-law Rob were out for a picture perfect May day on Lake Wallenpaupack.  The pair used Keitech Baits in their approach and had a splendid day with great action all day.  They caught a big walleye that was harvested for a tasty walleye meal and also they would catch a striped bass and many smallmouth along with a spattering of other species on the day.  They joked and told stories and had plenty of laughs  on their voyage under the warm rays of the spring sun.

Tiger Trek 2023

Mark and his brother John went on their annual trek in search of tiger musky and a variety of other species.  Their two-day adventure seen mostly sunny skies for both days with a light breeze on day one with more of a steady breeze on day number two.  The tigers proved very elusive, but Mark did catch one on day one to break the ice.  These beautiful creatures are breath taking and savvy predators.  The duo fished about with a variety of baits for both days and had quite a trip as they compiled over 50 fish in two days including a 5.35# walleye, a 4.23# and 4.05# smallmouth and many other smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, and a variety of panfish.  Plenty of great conversations about music, televison programs, hunting, fishing and a whole more were exchanged during the outing.  They had tasty hoagies and Farmers Iced Tea to keep up their strength as they pounded away for two days with a combination of hard baits and soft plastics.  An overall great trip for these avid anglers and we look forward to seeing them back again in 2024 for their next tiger trek.
