Although Travis is an avid hunter and open water angler, he was intrigued to try ice fishing for the first time and brought along wife Stacey and daughter Delaney for their maiden adventure in the sport. The day was mostly overcast with very comfortable temperatures in the 30’s and very little wind as the holes were drilled on a surface that resembled a hockey rink as it was void of snow and very smooth. The trio jigged and ran time and time again after flags as they went through over five dozen bait as the action was extremely hot. Their catch consisted of smallmouth bass, perch and bluegill as a few were kept for some home cooking. They enjoyed freshly grilled venison and hamburgers during their outing and had an absolute blast for their first experience in the sport on this memorable February day.

Lee along with his friend Lisa and daughter Emily took a late January trek to Lake Wallenpaupack for some ice fishing. Lee is no first timer with Legends Outdoors or to ice fishing, but Lisa and Emily shared their first experience out on the frozen lake in search of the quarry that swim beneath. The day was very balmy for January as it was in the 30’s and 40’s with overcast skies and dead calm. With a combination of jigging and chasing down flags this trio had a banner day catching a variety of fish with bluegills being the majority of their catch as seen in the photo below. They had a great time enjoying the outdoors while learning about ice fishing, having a hot lunch of hot dogs and hamburgers, and spending quality time together. The panfish were all filleted and the pickerel cleaned and pickled for these anglers to enjoy for future meals. We hope to see Lee, Lisa and Emily back again for another Legends Outdoors adventure.

Dave and Chris who have been with Legends Outdoors on several occasions recently headed out for a November trip to close out the season. They were faced with a breezy day with a bit of overcast skies and a chilly bite to the air. They fished two bodies of water on this day including Lake Wallenpaupack to end the season with some added diversity. The water was in the mid to upper 40’s and the fish were really settling into a deep water mode and that is where this couple would find their quarry by fishing very slow and catching a really nice sack of pickerel, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass and perch on this fall day. A great ending to the open water angling and the year of 2015!

Striped Bass fanatics Paul and Jerry took a mid November trip out with Legends Outdoors to try and have one last dance with the ever elusive striper. These two friends are very avid Lake Wallenpaupack fishermen and are borderline obsessed with catching striped bass. These guys are repeat clients with Legends Outdoors and were faced with high blue skies and a dead calm day as they ventured out on their day. They tried fervently off and on for them, but never hooked up but in-between learned the technique of drop shotting deep water and landed nearly a dozen smallmouth bass to finish up the season on a prosperous note and look forward to the 2016 campaign with great anticipation.

Henry and his father-in-law Boris are no strangers to the Legends Outdoors trips throughout the years. This time these two men brought along their friend Izya for some New York fall fishing. A slick and sunny November day was the table set by nature for these three and they wholeheartedly welcomed that and had a banner day out on the water fishing together, enjoying the fresh fall air and the company of one another. They fished deep with tubes and Keitech baits in the 50-54 degree water and hammered out limits of smallmouth bass and some nice crappie and perch mixed in.

Returning client Dave went out for another trip with Legends Outdoors to bring in the month of November. He brought along his two friends Donnie and Raymond also known as PJ. The overcast morning brought an instant feeling about the day upcoming on the water for these three anglers. It proved to be a correct one as there were some really quality fish landed on this autumn day such as a dozen smallmouth bass, six jumbo perch and a bruiser walleye that was pushing the seven pound mark. This surely was a splendid way to spend a very comfortable November day in Pennsylvania with your friends enjoying what the great outdoors has to offer.

Charles and Charles from the Hobie Fishing Team visited Lake Wallenpaupack recently in October for several days. They spent two of the days out with Legends Outdoors in search of the fish in this magnificent Wayne County body of water. The water was in the mid 50’s and they had variable autumn winds to contend with. They gave the fish a strict diet of crankbaits and drop shotted baits to entice the fall appetites of the fish as they are preparing for the upcoming winter. The two displayed their passion for Hobie products and the sport of fishing with the Legends guides during these days and truly showed they are dedicated individuals. Charles and Charles caught mostly largemouth and smallmouth bass during their stay and are seen below with a sample of their catch. All the fish they caught were released back alive into the lake to live and flourish in the pristine waters of Lake Wallenpaupack. The Hobie Fishing Team is sponsored by Sterling Harbor Bait and Tackle in Wildwood, NJ and Sportsman’s Outpost in Williamstown, NJ.
