Two-Day Tiger Trek

Mark and John were back at it for their annual trip to the finger lakes region for a 2-day trek.  Their early May days had very different weather conditions as the first day had strong south winds with overcast skies and a bit of rain.  Day two seen a much warmer day with light winds and plenty of sunshine.  Day one the fish were much more agressive and were hitting hard baits with ferocious demeanor.  Day two the fish were much more apprehensive as John and Mark used more plastics to entice strikes from the fish.  One of the main goals was to catch a tiger musky and that would happenon day two.  They caught over 50 fish total in the two days including a really nice tiger musky that weighed in at 8.84#, several largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and some panfish in the mix.  They also had several other follow-ins and a cut-off by musky during the two days.  They enjoyed hoagies, pizza, snacks, iced tea and plenty of great conversations during the trip.  Another all around great adventure for Mark and John and we at Legends Outdoors look forward to seeing them again for their next adventure.

Happy 50th Birthday Tuzz

May 1st would be the 4th annual birthday bash for Tuzz aboard the Legends Outdoors Pontoon Boat on Lake Wallenpaupack.  The six members of the annual trek were Ethan, Donnie, Browner, Sid, Carl and Tuzz.  The group had a warm day with light winds and mostly sunny skies.  The members slung around a variety of Keitech Baits on the scenic waterway and would catch a bullhead, some perch, pickerel, and bass during the outing.  The group also had a shore lunch consisting of venison burgers, venison jalapeno hot dogs, snacks and cold beverages.  They also listened to quite a bit of music and comedy during the day as well as exchanging many stories amongst each other.  A great time was had by all and we would like to wish Tuzz a very happy 50th birthday!

Jerry & Pat

Legends Outdoors regular Jerry was back out on Lake Wallenpaupack for another day of fishing.  This time he brought friend Pat along for the adventure.  They were in search of striped bass as the main focus and that focus was fulfilled as Jerry would land a nice specimen for a photo before releasing it back into the lake.   Pat would catch a really nice sized largemouth bass and they would also catch some pickerel, smallmouth bass, and perch during the day.  It was not a day of a lot of bites, but a day of good quality when they did get bit.  They used Keitech Baits in their approach on this spring day.  The day would be calm and sunny with comfortable air temperatures.  It was a great day out overall for the two friends as plenty of great conversations also took place about hunting and other fishing adventures while enjoying the sights and sounds of this scenic waterway.

Noah's Birthday Outing

Oded and his son Noah went out for a day of fishing on Lake Wallenpaupack.  This was a birthday present for Noah and he was very enthusiastic and excited about this special day.  Noah learned how to use a spinning rod/reel and did very well in doing so.  They had a blue skied day with a brisk morning, but the day rapidly warmed up.  They caught several smallmouth bass during their outing while alternating between Keitech Baits and hardbaits.  We would like to wish Noah a very happy birthday and hope he has many more wonderful days fishing in the years to come.

Matt & Carl's April Adventure

Legends Outdoors regulars of Matt and Carl were in for a two-day fishing adventure.  They typically come in once a year for five days of fishing, but they decided to take an extra outing this year in late April.  They fished two days on two different bodies of water.  Day one was chilly in the morning with blue skies and very light winds.  Day number two was chilly again with overcast skies and light wind again.  They used all Keitech Baits in their approach and had good success.  They caught a couple striped bass, several smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, and pickerel on their outings.  They had some tasty lunches each day and enjoyed the spring sights and sounds of northeast PA while fishing these scenic waterways.  We look forward to seeing Matt and Carl back again in the upcoming months for their next outdoor adventures.

Alex & Rob

Alex and Rob set out on a late April day for a day of fishing with Legends Outdoors.  Alex is a long time client while Rob is a first timer with us.  The mission was to try and get northern pike.  Their day was a cold front morning with frost followed by rapidly warming air temps and blue bird skies.  The two friends used mostly big swim baits in their approach both soft plastic and hard bait alike in trying to entice these toothy predators.  They were all about the lake searching and fishing with several follow-ins and one that smacked the bait, but didn't get the hooks.  They did however catch several nice smallmouth bass, a few largemouth bass, and even a few perch and crappie in the mix during the outing.  Alex brought along some hearty sandwiches for the entire boat and the anglers had a fun day out on this scenic waterway.

Three Generations Journey

John along with son Sean and grandson MJ went out for a late April day on Lake Wallenpaupack.  John was celebrating a birthday this week and was treated to the outing by his son Sean.  The day was overcast with a strong south wind rolling up the lake during the trip.  The three anglers used a combo of Keitech Baits and hardbaits in their approach.  They had decent action and caught several smallmouth bass and a couple yellow perch during the abbreviated day.  Plenty of great conversations about a diversity of topics and they learned a bit more about he lake and new techniques to apply in their future days on the water.  We would like to wish John a very happy birthday and we look forward to seeing them all again in the future for another outdoor adventure.

Familiar Faces, Familiar Results

Dennis, Mike and Vinny were back out for another day on legendary Lake Wallenpaupack.  It was a moderate spring day with a mix of sun and clouds during the outing.  The trio has had many bountiful days on the lake with good quality fish over the years. The lake was very reluctant to yield bites to the three veteran anglers, but the minimal opportunities were good ones as they caught two striped bass and some nice smallmouth bass on Keitech Baits and hard baits.  As usual Dennis brought along plenty of food for the entire boat including pizza and sandwiches which is deeply appreciated by all.  They shared in many great conversations about hunting and fishing while enjoying this nice spring day outing together.

Mission Accomplished

Mike and Matt went out for a day on scenic Lake Wallenpaupack looking for the elusive striped bass.  Their quest seen high blue skies and a chop on the water for these pair of anglers.  They pursued the stripers with a high diet of Keitech Baits with a few hard baits mixed in.  They purely stuck with the progam and were rewarded with opportunities.  Matt would land stripers on back-to-back casts during the day and they lost a few also on the outing.  Great conversations about hunting and fishing were had during the day while enjoying the fishing adventure.  They also caught a few nice smallmouth bass and pickerel mixed in.  The goal was achieved for this duo and we hope to see them back again in the future for another Legends Outdoors adventure.

Cold Front Challenge

Legends Outdoors regulars of Jim and Curtis were back out for their first adventure of 2024.  Their late day out in April would be very challenging text book cold front conditions; high blue skies and a frosty morning with air temps in the upper 30's.  A later start was the strategy to let the waters warm up a bit under the warm spring sun.  The duo had decent action throughout the day with plenty of opportunities.  The offerings would be a high diet of Keitech Baits along with some other hard baits mixed in.  They would catch a few really nice smallmouth bass, a northern pike, a few other smallmouth bass, largemouth bass and several panfish that rounded out the catch.  They enjoyed some sandwiches and snacks along with great converstations about trips of the past, the NFL draft, work, and restaurants during the outing as they had a great time out together on this sunny spring day.  We look forward to seeing Jim and Curtis back later in the year for their next Legends Outdoors adventure.
