    identical in comfort and we just think it’s important to have a nice seat over

    rests you can get comfortable up here as well and of course this sporty Tower makes
    the boat really look great but it’s actually the RPT tubes as well as that

    years now and each year they seem to get better and better thank you for watching

    Winter Steelhead Fishing at Erie, Pennsylvania

    August 31, 2019


    2014 almost got away from us before we
    were able to put in a steelhead fishing trip but finally in
    the second week in December Luke and I were able to take a couple days
    off and we headed up to Erie, Pennsylvania The first day we spent most of our time
    fishing on lower Elk Creek and we really had very little success. I
    was able to pull in one steelhead near the mouth and later on in the day Luke was able to
    pull in a brown trout. The fishing was even slower on day two.
    We started out at Lower Elk Creek again and we had no success there so we went
    over to 16 Mile Creek we did find some fish there but they
    were not interested in anything we had to offer. on day three the weather turned colder
    and some snow started to fall and the fish started to bite. We were
    able to catch several fish on Upper Elk and Upper Walnut Creek Luke: oh yeah, he’s nice. There it is. Eldon: that’s what it’s all about For me,steelhead fishing is always a
    learning experience every time I come up here I learn new spots to fish I learn a little bit more about
    presentation, about which baits to use it’s that challenge that keeps me looking
    forward to the next trip up here

    How to catch a fish with a soda can without a rod

    August 21, 2019


    One of the nice things about panfishing is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money. A lot of sporting goods stores have rod and reel combos for as little as
    $20 and there nothing special but they work fine for fishing for panfish. But if you are even more frugal than that
    but you can actually catch a fish without a rod and reel – you can just use a
    long stick or, like I’m going to show this morning, you can even use a pop can. first I need to get the proper amount of
    fishing line. I have some 4 pound test here that I’m going
    to use and I’d like it about 12 feet long so
    what I’m going to do is measure by stretching on my arms one to
    each side, and just get about three times that length that should be about right for what I
    want to do today Now I’m gonna tie the end of the line to the
    tab of the pop can. I’ll probably use an improved clinch knot to do that but it
    doesn’t really matter what knot you use here. OK, now I have it tied on Now I’m going to take the line and put it
    straight back toward the back of the can and I’m gonna hold it there and then use a
    piece of packing tape to make sure it stays there. I’m just gonna wrap the tape around the
    can. Now I’m gonna take the line and wrap it
    around the can and I’m gonna put it all on there except just
    enough on the end to put my tackle on. Alright, I think we’re all set. I have my normal panfish tackle on here
    which includes bobber and then a split shot sinker and a snap swivel and finally a hook with a european night crawler. There’s one there we got a little rock bass not too bad for a pop can rig another rock bass
