Jake and Steven

Posted: 3rd September 2015 by Dave in Blog Entries

Jake and his dad Steven went out with Legends Outdoors for an August encounter with Lake Wallenpaupack.  A slight breeze and comfortable temperatures were what was given to these two men as they heaved cast after cast with artificial offerings in hopes of a ferocious strike. The blue skies that wouldn’t surrender a cloud made  for a tough day fishing, but they still caught a few nice smallmouth on topwaters and latched into a few other fish during the outing as they had a great time fishing together on on this scenic body of water.    They both said they can’t wait to do it again!

Summertime Smiles

Posted: 31st August 2015 by Dave in Blog Entries

A beautiful picture perfect August day was the setting for a recent trip out on the pontoon boat for Renee, her two sons and a friend of theirs.  The three boys had a glimmer in their eyes the entire day as one would racing down in the wee hours to a Christmas tree that was surrounded by gifts from Old Saint Nick.  The mystifying aura of the sun, wind, water, and fresh air along with the anticipation of hooking into the next fish kept this crew on their toes all day as they fished hard and never gave up on their quest.  They caught several nice smallmouth bass, pickerel, perch and sunfish during their trip as the entire group was all smiles as seen below on this splendid family and friends summertime outing.

Striper Triad for Dave and Chris

Posted: 28th August 2015 by Dave in Blog Entries

Dave and his wife Chris were back at Lake Wallenpaupack with Legends Outdoors recently in August for another outdoor experience.  Their goal was to go for striped bass and so the stage was set on a blazing hot day.  Even with soaring temperatures and a plethora of water skiers around, this couple boated three hefty stripers on their quest and also caught a couple bonus smallmouth bass during the outing as they fulfilled exactly what they set out to do.  Dave is a chef by trade and brought out some homemade sauces and soups for the trip  to eat and share with Legends Outdoors and they were very delicious for sure.  An awesome day out and mission accomplished for Dave and Chris.

Hot Summer Striper Action!

Posted: 20th August 2015 by Dave in Blog Entries

Braden and his cousin Paul have fished Lake Wallenpaupack a few times and were looking for more insight on trying to catch the ever elusive striped bass that reside there.  They dialed up Legends Outdoors for a trip to try and target these striped beauties during the normally very tough month of August for this species.  Their day did not disappoint as they landed three really solid striped bass and learned the patterns and techniques involved in pursuing the stripers.   Braden and Paul went out the very next day on their own and landed another striped bass even bigger than any of the three shown here showing how quickly they caught on and applied their knowledge.  Great going guys!

Joe and Jake’s August Adventure

Posted: 18th August 2015 by Dave in Blog Entries

Joe and his son Jake took an early August vacation to the Lake Wallenpaupack area and decided to do some fishing during their stay so they contacted Legends Outdoors.  Their day out was a hot and humid one as many August days are here in Northeast Pennsylvania.  They used mainly Keitech baits to entice their fish on this trip as they drop shotted deep and also pursued others in the shallows. They made their rounds hitting several areas and wound up with a good variety and decent quantity of fish as they pulled in smallmouth bass, pickerel, and a few panfish amidst the game fish caught.  What an exciting day it was for this father and son to share together during their Poconos vacation together.

Heating up the Pack with Smoothie and Doug

Posted: 14th August 2015 by Dave in Blog Entries

Smoothie and Doug once again came out to Lake Wallenpaupack for another day of fishing with Legends Outdoors.  Smoothie enjoys fishing this lake from when the ice is just leaving the lake until it starts forming again and everything in between so it isn’t shocking to see him out in a heavy jacket, rainsuit, morning, evening, or as in this case a hot and bright day of late July.  The day wound up not being the only thing that was hot as he and Doug hammered out several smallmouth bass and an oh by the way crappie along with several other fish on a variety of baits and techinques during their outing.  All fish were once again released back into the pristine waters of beautiful Lake Wallenpaupack.

The Royal Rangers Outpost 390 from Berwick, Pennsylvania visited Lake Wallenpaupack recently for a trip with Legends Outdoors.  Steve, Frank and Shaunie accompanied the children on the pontoon boat for a fun day of fishing and excitement.  They had a hot and sunny July day to bask in the sun and throw in their lines in pursuit of their quarry.  The troop learned a couple methods of fishing during their outing for both deep and shallow water fishing alike.  They caught mostly panfish on their trip as they learned the different species that roam these waters and also were shown by the Legends Outdoors staff how to clean the panfish for a nice table fare also at the end of the fishing trip.  An all around excellent outdoor adventure for the Royal Rangers and their instructors.
