  1. Chasing roaming largemouth wasn't the original plan, but it ended up being the way to catch them on this day. Any of you ever experience this? Chasing Lake Erie Largemouth Video Click Here
  2. Portage River Ohio. Fishing Muddy Water for Bass. This is a fishing trip from last year I did on the Portage River near Port Clinton. There are times when muddy water can make for a tough day of fishing. There are certain things you can do to increase your chances of catching bass when facing these conditions. Come along for a fishing trip on the Portage River and see how this day turned out on this Lake Erie tributary. Portage River Video Click Here
  3. My day off fishing appears to be a wash again today with 50 mph winds and rain expected. Here is Jim and my first trip last year on Coldwater Lake in southern Michigan. Anyone else ever fish this lake before? Coldwater Lake Michigan Fishing Video Click Here
  4. Detroit River fishing video summer of 2022. You never know what you're going to catch on the Detroit River. This particular day was a great multi species day on the river. There aren't too many fisheries that hold the number of fish that the Detroit River does. Sometimes it's just a matter of getting on the right area. Come along for a trip on the Detroit River with R & J Bass Fishing. Detroit River Fishing Video Click Here
  5. Here is a fishing trip Jim and I had last spring on Sandusky Bay. Looking forward to getting back out there. We were bass fishing, but it seemed like you had a bite almost every other cast with the catfish and junk fish mixed in. Sandusky Bay Fishing Video Click Here
  6. Here is a trip from last year fishing ultra clear water of Northern Michigan in the Lower Peninsula. Four and a half hours to get some fish in the boat and this lake never disappoints me for getting bites. #bassfishing #fishing #walloon #lake #michigan #smallmouth #bass #outdoors #news Fishing Ultra Clear Water of Northern Michigan Video Click Here
  7. It's hard to beat West Harbor of Lake Erie for quantity of bass. This trip you will get to see lots of aerial views of the harbor that you may have not fished before. Great place to kayak, or even big enough for bass club tournaments. It's gets tons of pressure, but somehow still produces all year long. This particular day was a Monday at the end of June. Tons of fishing pressure over the weekend, and still, lots of bass boats on Monday. I did some minor tweaking of lures and came up with a good combination to put lots of bass in the boat. Thank goodness for old lure that the bass probably hadn't seen that much. If you're looking for a break from the winter blues. Come along for the sights, sounds, and some fishing on the Great Lakes. #WestHarbor #LakeErie #bassfishing #bass #ohio #outdoors #news #fish #bass #lake #erie #GreatLakes West Harbor Lake Erie Bass Fishing Video Click Here
  8. Walleye and bass fishing Lake Erie Catawba Island area September 28th. The video below was a fun day on the lake. For some crazy reason the walleye was right up on the shoreline. Guys were catching them from shore this particular day. The baitfish must have been pushed in there good. Maybe something to check out until the ice comes back for fishing.

  9. I was finally able to meet up with my good buddy Jim from northeast Ohio. We stuck to fishing East Harbor of Lake Erie for the day. Man does that harbor hold some fish! East Harbor Lake Erie Video Click Here
  10. I was scouting out new areas at the mouth of the Maumee River and western end of Lake Erie. You sure do fish lots of dead water when scouting, but when you find new areas holding fish it sure is rewarding. Lake Erie and Maumee River Fishing Video Click Here
  11. It's crazy in the past year I've saved two seagulls on Lake Erie. The first one had a reef runner stuck in its feet. This one was tangled in something completely different. It managed to get a couple good pecks in before I was able to release it. Luckily, I was able to capture it on video. Saved Seagull Video Link
  12. Jim and I took a fishing trip to Lake Erie last Saturday. The fishing wasn't fantastic, but the day on the water was certainly fun. We fished lots of areas that would be good for a small boat or kayak. The interactions with people on the water remind me of what I like about fishing. There are lots of good folks out there. Hope you enjoy video. https://rumble.com/v1g18rt-lake-erie-bass-fishing-largemouth-august-2022.html?mref=66lt3&mc=9e0fe
  13. I had the pleasure of fishing Crooked lake a little over a week ago. Water was crystal clear and there was no breeze at all. I was able to stick some decent fish and took some aerial views of the lake. Crooked Lake Video Click Here
  14. Here is a modification you can make to a bladed jig to catch more bass. Worth trying if you haven't before. How To Make a Bladed Jig Modification Video
  15. It's not too often you can fish the Great Lakes with topwater and get away with it. It's usually too rough, or the seagulls are trying to eat your lure. This day it seemed like it was the only thing the bass would eat. Lake Erie Topwater Fishing Video
  16. Early spring fishing on Lake Leelanau for smallmouth. Some surprise trout and walleye caught too. Lake Leelanau Fishing Video
  17. Have any of you fished this lake in Michigan? It's one of the best topwater bite lakes I've come across in the state. Best Froggin Lake in Michigan Video
  18. What a fun place to fish! This place has so many places to catch bass there isn't enough time in the day to check them all out. Come along with me as I check out Sandusky Bay of Lake Erie and see what it has to offer. Sandusky Bay Bass Fishing Video
  19. Anyone know the best time of year to hit Little Traverse Bay? I took the vacation a little too early again this year. Water was still too cold for the smallmouth to be moved up. Caught a ton, but the big ones were missing. Little Traverse Bay Video
  20. Anyone lose a reef runner? My buddy and I came across this seagull that had a treble hook in each foot. We decided to tackle the problem and help the bird out. Seagull Saved From Certain Death Video
  21. Curious what the oddest thing you have caught is? My buddy hooked a seagull when it dive bombed his topwater lure. Comical series of events as he reeled it in. Video below. Fisherman Hooks Seagull Video
  22. Post spawn fishing trip and hitting lots of water along the way. Catching big smallmouth, largemouth, pike, and other species. Come along and see where we fished and what we caught them on. Hope you enjoy the video. Takes lots of time and effort to put these together. Tight lines. Detroit River, Lake Erie, Huron River Fishing
  23. I had plans to fish Monday, but that went by the waistside. I did watch the coast guard doing practice runs in those waves. Those guys are pretty amazing what they can go out in. Took some video shots from Charlevoix and Petoskey. Little Traverse Bay was much nicer today. Lake Michigan Gale Force Winds
  24. My buddy Jim had an earlier vacation this year than prior years we went up north. We figured it shouldn't affect to fishing to much, but man we wrong there. Finding the fish pre-spawn was much more difficult. Weather patterns were terrible to fish in as well. This particular day (May5th) the water surface temperature as running 43 degrees and air temperature in the morning was 29 degrees. It was a real roll of the dice this year going early. Each day we fished was a grind, but we did manage to catch some decent smallmouth and walleye, but certainly not in the numbers we would have liked. I'm headed back up in about 3 weeks. I'm thinking the fish will be post spawn then. I may have to try Traverse Bay or Little Traverse. This Charlevoix video below has some aerial views of the lake, underwater shots, and of-course some good fish catches. Lake Charlevoix Smallmouth Fishing
