March Madness on Ice

Posted: 25th March 2015 by Dave in Blog Entries

Alex and Christopher recently took their first adventure ever out ice fishing with their father Lee on Lake Wallenpaupack.  A sunny day with moderate temperatures and a slight breeze throughout was the canvas that mother nature painted for this outing with Legends Outdoors.  They had a great day all around as the three caught several fish including bluegill, sunfish, a perch or two mixed in along with some solid sized pickerel.  The group also had the fortune of seeing a bald eagle during their trip and a small herd of deer cross the frozen lake.  Amidst the day of action and laughter, the group was treated to grilled cheese sandwiches and pasta fazool to warm them and satisfy their appetites.   A complete day!

A Trip Down Memory Lane with Steve and Dan

Posted: 18th March 2015 by Dave in Blog Entries

Steve wanted to show his son Dan the lake he used to fish many years ago so he invited him to go for a day out with Legends Outdoors on Lake Wallenpaupack.  Their half day trip was filled with many stories of yesteryear about this great lake and the surrounding area as well as consistent action both jigging and with tip-ups.  Amidst the gusty winds and the snow squalls the father and son duo hauled in quite a variety of fish including perch, bluegill, pickerel and some really nice smallmouth bass.  This lake holds many memories for Steve and this day created some more recent ones for both!

Josh Gives Hard Water Angling a Try

Posted: 14th March 2015 by Dave in Blog Entries

Josh was interested in learning about the sport of ice fishing and what is involved with it from A-Z.  He was in town away from his New York residency and wanted to give it a try before leaving to return home so he dialed up Legends Outdoors for a rendezvous on a Pennsylvania waterway.  The day was not a fishing friendly day as the wind blew hard and the blue skies and drifting snow across the frozen lake made for a difficult outing but nevertheless Josh fished in it and learned some of the things that are involved with the sport.   He only had time for an abbreviated day but it was a memorable one for Josh as he got to experience something he really wanted to investigate.  We at Legends Outdoors look forward to seeing Josh again in the future.

A Variety “Pack” for Frank and Tom

Posted: 11th March 2015 by Dave in Blog Entries

A day out ice fishing with the father and son team of Frank and Tom was the setting for this day.  It was a day that started out blue and crisp with plenty of sun changing over to clouds and a stiff breeze that blew during the outing.  There were plenty of steps taken during the day as the walk to the spot and the numerous amounts of flags on the tip ups kept them moving consistently.  On this day with a combo of jigging and tip-ups in various depths produced quite a variety of solid production for these two.  Their haul consisted of a 24″ channel catfish, a 19″ smallmouth bass, two solid pickerel and numerous panfish that included crappie, perch and bluegill.  There were plenty of smiles to go around today and the freshly grilled food out on the ice just added that giant punctuation mark to a successful trip.

Quite a Show in the Snow!

Posted: 6th March 2015 by Dave in Blog Entries

David and his wife Chris booked a trip with Legends Outdoors for ice fishing on Lake Wallenpaupack some time ago.  The day finally arrived and it was an all day snow storm from start to finish.  As the snow fell, David and Chris jigged and chased flags in the constant barrage of snowflakes that fell.  The action was hot all day as they caught between 30-40 bluegill and perch and also caught about seven or eight pickerel with the largest being 26″ and several others over the 20″ mark.  During this spectacular day they had a fish fry with David’s special seasonings and some venison bologna to go along with it as they feasted heartily.  We look forward to having David and Chris back along for another Legends Outdoors adventure be it rain, snow or sunshine.

Fab Five Return in 2-0-1-5

Posted: 2nd March 2015 by Dave in Blog Entries

The “Fab Five” crew of Mike, Andrew, Marc, Jared and Anthony returned for two days of ice fishing with Legends Outdoors and area recreational activities in late February.  The New York residents were faced with blue bird sunny skies on day one with a stiff wind along with cold temperatures and had another cold blue bird sunny day for day two with hardly a breeze as they tested their skills on the 17″ plus frozen Lake Wallenpaupack.  Day one brought many flags but the fish were tentative to hold the bait but coupled with jigging the crew brought in four nice smallmouth bass and several perch.  Day two the action slowed drastically as a few solid pickerel were caught but the days spent together as friends catching up on the happenings of their lives along with a smorgasbord of pizza, chili, hot dogs, pretzels, potato chips and venison freshly cooked on the ice made the entire experience of a return visit one to remember.

Matty & Bubba Feast on the Pack!

Posted: 26th February 2015 by Dave in Blog Entries

Matty and his son Bubba went out for a day of ice-fishing on beautiful Lake Wallenpaupack with Legends Outdoors.  With an unusually balmy 38 degree day for this February coupled with a mixture of sunny and overcast skies it had all the makings of a banner day awaiting.  It didn’t disappoint as Bubba was fervent in his education on learning how to jig for the fish that lay beneath the frozen lake and he stayed the course the entire day as he and his father fished hard.  They landed about 40 bluegills and perch along with a couple pickerel during this outing both with jigging and tipups and also had quite a feast as seen in the photo during this outing.  A great day all around!

Jessie and Ollie returned for some more action on scenic Lake Wallenpaupack recently.  They brought Carol along for a fun filled day that had both bright blue skies and cloud cover accompanied by moderate February temperatures.  The trio used an arsenal of both tip-ups and jigging to entice a slew of monster pickerel, variety of panfish and a hefty smallmouth bass.  Throw in some freshly grilled hot dogs and hamburgers and this made for quite a festive day for all!

Valentine’s Day Excursion

Posted: 15th February 2015 by Dave in Blog Entries

Kevin and his son Michael decided they wanted to try ice fishing out and made plans to do so by going on an adventure with Legends Outdoors.  This trip was set up by Kevin’s wife as a thoughtful thing for her husband to do since he was really intrigued by the sport so the date was set and it arrived with ferocious temperatures and stiff winds.  The father and son duo braved the elements and learned alot about ice fishing during their trip as they enjoyed the warmth of a tent along with freshly made grilled cheese and hot chocolate.  They had a great time despite the bitter elements they faced and landed a smallmouth bass and a variety of panfish during their Valentine’s Day excursion.
