The videos have been hard to come by this summer. It's not for lack of trying either. We've been to the White River, Ohio River, Brookville Lake, Lake Monroe twice, and Raccoon Lake with hardly any luck and ZERO videos. Another problem is that my favorite camera to use, the Canon ZR850 has stopped working. The record button stopped working last year, but it still worked with the remote. Then on the trip where we filmed the "Catching Bait" video, Chase was pulling back the rope to the trolling motor and it snapped and he flew back and landed on the camera bag. It crushed the remote. The camera still worked so I was gonna get a new remote, but that only lasted a few days then it wouldn't power on at all. Sucks cause that's the camera I use to "capture" the videos onto the pc. It's just been one of those summers.
Spent the better part of the day at ol' "Box of Chocolates Lake" again. I was using a jig and half crawler because I've somehow convinced myself that there's walleye or saugeye in there.
The lake lived up to it's name again, but no toothy critters. The final tally was 1 crappie, 1 buffalo, 2 channel cats, 2 spotted bass, and 1 carp. All were caught on a 1/16oz orange and black jig with a red hook except for 1 bass that was caught on a green road runner. Most the fish were caught in 20 fow. The water temp is still 81, so it will still be a while before we break out the big musky baits.
This little guy bit off more than he could chew.
The highlight of the trip was fighting this carp.
The only 2 "keepers." 10 inch crappie and fiddler cat
I went to our pond this evening to try and finish off a mess and did add another channel cat, but that was it. Guess I'll have to get some fish out of the freezer to fry up with the few I caught. I did catch 2 bass with the biggest going over 17. All on the orange/black jig with crawler again, only under a float to stay out of the weeds in the pond.
