Long time friends Peter and Ken spend a lot of time with each other doing a variety of activities and traveling to various places. This time the event would be a February day of ice fishing with Legends Outdoors on Lake Wallenpaupack. Although there were some stiff winds to contend with these two had the glory of basking in the strength of a winter sun and moderate temperatures. The enjoyment of the day was punctuated by catching a slammer smallmouth bass, a pickerel, some jumbo perch and then a late day run of a good quantity of bluegills.
The family of Jeff, Fran and Maria recently visited the Lake Wallenpaupack area and took a trip with Legends Outdoors on a snowy day. They braved the weather and fished through the flurries en route to a good day of fishing on Lake Wallenpaupack with several pickerel and panfish. They enjoyed their family time together along with guides C.J. and Joe Pacholec and have plenty of pictures and memories to enjoy for years to come.
Local news celebrity Sharla recently joined Legends Outdoors on Lake Wallenpaupack to enjoy the dynamics of ice fishing. Her interest was to learn the many facets that go along with the sport and also to participate in them. The Legends Outdoors crew took her through the steps of drilling a hole, setting and baiting a tip-up and jigging while using electronics. She was able to see the enjoyment of this sport in its entirety as the food on the grill, the smile on the faces of children, and the camaraderie highlighted a day of participating in and catching several fish beside a couple families that were out with Legends Outdoors on a snowy day.
Five long time friends from the Queens N.Y. area organized an ice fishing adventure with Legends Outdoors slated for late January. The “Fab Five” arrived with anticipation of getting out on Lake Wallenpaupack for some fishing and a chance to catch up with each other. Mike, Andrew, Marc, Jared and Anthony were ambitious and very game for a day with highs in the 20′s and off and on snow during their outing. Amidst the the excitement of running for flags and jigging for the fish that lay beneath there were plenty of stories exchanged and many laughs throughout the day. They learned much about the several aspects of the sport of ice fishing and put what they learned to the test as several quality fish were caught as shown in the photos and a fun time was had by all. A hot meal of soup and a variety of meats along with the fresh air and friends all added to the total outdoor experience for this group that helped make memories that will last a lifetime.
Long time client and friend John ventured out on the frozen waters of Lake Wallenpaupack with Legends Outdoors for some hard water angling on a recent January day. As the holes were drilled and the food was grilled John was able to enjoy the full effects of the cool crisp air and the smell of the meal cooking in the outdoors while attempting to catch the fish that live in this vast lake. John would have quite a day catching several species of fish including Largemouth Bass, Pickerel, and Perch while savoring the total experience. The ice fishing season is in full swing now with plenty of ice and gaining rapidly and there are many more days to come of great ice fishing on Lake Wallenpaupack and other area bodies of water.

At the time of year when many are thinking of turkey, football, shopping and hunting Glen goes on his annual November perch outing with Legends Outdoors. This year would be no different as he and proprietor Joe Pacholec headed out for some fantastic perch fishing on this overcast autumn day. The day was filled with plenty of perch action as seen in the photo and a few bonus largemouth bass were also brought aboard during the trip.
Mike from M&J Custom Rods along with his father went out on a trip recently with Legends Outdoors guide Joe Pacholec. Mike has many years experience building custom rods for both fresh and salt water alike. He is an expert in his craft and produces a high quality product putting everything on from guides, tips, cork, blank, reel seat, and decals of your liking. He not only builds them but also does repairs for rods including those that are completely broken in two pieces. He took a break from building and repairing and came out fishing along with his father and put some of his equipment and skills to the test and they landed some nice smallmouth bass during the outing. We at Legends Outdoors would like to thank M&J Custom Rods for being a sponsor and were very glad they could join us for a day on the water.
On a recent Tuesday two good friends and neighbors Wayne and Will went out with Legends Outdoors on Lake Wallenpaupack. It was a chilly morning but the lake was tranquil and serene as very few inhabitants on and around the lake were present. We were sharpening the skills of fishing crankbaits for bass and used various color patterns and brands to learn and try and entice the bass from the chilling waters of this Wayne County lake. The fishing was spotty for much of the day but the anglers persisted and hooked into some nice fish and learned alot about the lake and crankbait fishing along the way.
The father and son combination of Joe and Ryan are no strangers to fishing and have seen many bodies of water in their travels throughout the years. On this overcast and cold day they wanted to explore more of and learn other techniques on this legendary body of water they both have fished on several an occasion in the past. In a bass boat we glided through the crisp autumn air in search of the fish that roam these waters and fished several baits and used a variety of techniques to pursue them. Joe was a long time member of the Pennsylvania B.A.S.S. Federation and his tournament stories highlighted some very good conversations we all shared during the outing. The weather warmed during the day and they hooked into some quality smallmouth bass during the wind swept adventure
