Matt & Carl 2021

Carl and his son Matt returned to Pennsylvania in 2021 for their annual week of fishing with Legends Outdoors.  The father and son duo have been making the journey from Virginia each year for many years now for a multi-day outing.  This fall they seen a diversity of waterways (three), boats they fished on (three), and weather conditions during their five days of fishing.  Carl and Matt used mostly Keitech Baits with a mix of hardbaits and other soft plastics on their outing.  The plethora of wildlife that they seen was outstanding as the numerous bird species and mammals really added to the entire outdoor adventure for this duo.  They would have a mix of hot streaks and lulls in the action, but overall good quality for sure.  They landed several bass that fought strongly in the chilling waters with several that hit the 3 & 4 pound range as shown below.  They also caught chain pickerel and a few varieties of panfish on their outing.  Matt would hook into and carefully play out the big one of the trip in the stained water on light line before working it towards the net on a chilly morning that resulted in a 7.38# walleye for his personal best walleye of his fishing career!  Matt and Carl also enjoyed some nice sandwiches and snacks each day out on the water as well as Wednesday when they were treated to a shore lunch consisting of fresh panfish and pickerel along with Legends Outdoors famous macaroni salad and brownies while resting on one of the scenic islands of Lake Wallenpaupack.  The great conversations, good food, good fishing, wildlife, camaraderie with the guides, good lodging, and time away from hectic work schedule made for an amazing and outstanding adventure once again for Matt & Carl in 2021.
