Ideal Day Delight

 Dennis & Vinny were back out with Legends Outdoors for yet another outdoor adventure.  They brought along Joe this time which gets out about once a year with us for an outing.  Their day was ideal with overcast skies and calm waters.  The trio used a combination of live bait and Keitech Baits in their approach.  They went looking for striped bass for a bit without any caught before switching gears.  They would find great success by catching a good variety of fish including largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and an assortment of panfish.  Dennis brought along sandwiches as usual for the entire boat as usual and as always it is deeply appreciated.  They harvested some of the good quality panfish that they caught for some future fish meals and had a great time overall on scenic Lake Wallenpaupack.  We look forward to seeing Dennis and his friends back in the very near future for their next Legends Outdoors outing.

Banner Days

 Jerry and his two friends went north to New York for two days of fishing in early June.  The results would be outstanding as the three men had one day exceeding 100 fish with then other nearing it.  The trip looked bleak with the main guide boat being out for repair, but Legends Outdoors had a backup boat in the "Chic Magnet" that proved to be more than worthy of handling the situation for the two days.  A big thanks to John and Glenn for keeping this vintage boat around for many years and to see it sailing yet once again.  The both days the waters were calm for the anglers with one day being overcast and the other very sunny.  These days came after a few windy cold front days passed through.  They caught perch, smallmouth bass, rockbass and a nice largemouth bass thrown in there for good measure.  Keitech Baits were a big player for the trio and they kept several panfish for fish meals including cooking some over open coals between days one and two in the evening as shown in the photo below.  We would like to thank Jerry for providing hoagies for the boat during the trip and for organizing the outing as we look forward to seeing him and his group back again in the near future.

Smoothie's Smackdown

Smoothie was back out with Legends Outdoors on a solo journey.  He has been with Legends Outdoors since its birth and goes several times a year with us.  He took a trek to New York to spend a day out on these pristine waters and enjoy some outstanding fishing action.  He spent a warm late spring day catching dozens upon dozens of smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and rockbass with a heavy diet of Keitech Baits.  It was an absolute smackdown for numbers of fish today for this veteran angler and a nice mini-vacation enjoying a few days in New York State.

Big Bait Trip (Sort of) 2024

 Alex and Scott set out on their annual "Big Bait Trip" to New York for three days of fishing fun.  Alex typically sticks to his self-regulated rule of all baits need be a minimun of 4" in length for the entire three days, but he did break down and throw some micro baits for panfish off and on.  It would be three different bodies of water with day one being bright blue skies, wind and a cold front that rolled in recently making the bite oh so tough. Alex was also not feeling too well on this day and missed out on some fishing time, but did get some fishing in as they caught several largemouth bass on that day.  Day two was still very chilly and blue skies with much less wind as they fished another body of water.  They would catch some smallmouth bass and a whole lot of rockbass and perch on that day out on the water.  Day number three was overcast with calm waters and much warmer air temperatures.  It took some time, but the father/son duo persevered and had a really good day catching smallmouth bass, smallmouth bass and an assortment of panfish.  They packed tasty sanwiches for all three days, cold beverages, shared in plenty of stories and music conversations during their trip.  Scott and Alex had a great time and we look forward to hosting their 2025 annual adventure.

Mikey's Mission

Long time clients of Mikey and his father Kevin were back out on Lake Wallenpaupack for another outing at the end of May.  The goal this time around was to catch a northern pike.  These two anglers have a lot of dedication and patience when searching out targeted species such as this or striped bass.  They put in a long day of waiting patiently for an opportunity, but after many hours had passed that opportunity arrived and Mikey seized the moment.  He landed this nice northern pike that posed for a photo before being released.  The father and son had a great time out together on this sunny spring day and mission was accomplished.

Kapsize Crew 2024

The year of 2024 brought the Kapsize Crew back to Lake Wallenpaupack for their annual fishing adventure together.  This is a long time tradition for this group of friends and this year would be no different as this group of anglers spent four days fishing on this scenic waterway.  They did a plethora of other activities during the off days of fishing and evenings as well.  The men used Keitech Baits and live bait during the days of fishing to entice strikes from their quarry.  They caught an assortment of species including striped bass, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, pickerel and a variety of panfish.  They also enjoyed a shore lunch on one of the days consisting of fried fish caught from this very lake along with some of Legends Outdoors own macaroni salad and coleslaw on the side.  We appreciate Dennis for organizing the trip once again for the Kapsize Crew and look foward to seeing them back again in 2025 for their annual trek.

Glenn's Family Gathering 2024

Glenn and his family came in for their two-day annual fishing trip to Lake Wallenpaupack. With much of the family living in different cities and states, this is a great opportunity for them to catch up on things and spend a long weekend together.  They play cards, have dinner, exchange stories, and of course head out for two days of fishing. They had water temperatures in the 50s with overcast and drizzly on day one while the second day was a bit warmer and sunny.  They caught smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, crappie, rockbass, perch and chain pickerel as the main species for the two days.  Keitech baits were the main baits used during the outing for this family outing.   A great time was had by all and we would like to thank Glenn for organizing the trip once again and we look forward to their 2025 venue of choice.

Crappie Quest 2024

Dave and Chrissy went on their annual crappie quest in the middle of May.  They had a cool day with a slight breeze and cloudy skies.  They have had many a great day in the past and today would be no different as the husband/wife duo caught well in the double digits of crappie with a several slabs over the 12" range.  They used strictly Keitech Baits with light line tactics on their outing.  They also caught perch, bluegill, and a few largemouth bass in the mix.  Chef Dave made some tasty specialty sandwiches as usual for the entire boat and it is deeply appreciated.  Several of the panfish were harvested for future fish meals and a good time was had by Dave and Chrissy as usual.
