Two Jersey residents Mike and Moe returned for 2014 to start the Legends Outdoors Spring Party off with a bang. On a breezy sunny day with the water ranging from 42-48 degrees these two hammered out around 30 fish consisting of eight different species including perch, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, walleye, crappie and the like. What a way to start it off guys!
Long time client Bill took the maiden voyage with Legends Outdoors for the 2014 open water season. A mostly sunny April day with very little wind and moderate temperatures was the setting for this early season outing. Bill had a pleasant day with several nice fish caught such as brown trout, smallmouth bass, white suckers and perch. He also had a few others hooked that pulled off as he had over a dozen hookups on the trip. The ice is rapidly coming off Lake Wallenpaupack and with a few miles already opened up the rest will surely be gone very soon.

It had been some time since Bronx N.Y. residents Nikolay and Vladimir have experienced ice fishing so they decided to take the trip west and give it a whirl. They went out on a cloudy day with Legends Outdoors for some Lake Wallenpaupack March mayhem.

Jim wanted to take his two children Sashia and Pavel out ice fishing so he called up Legends Outdoors. A mild March day in the 30′s was the setting for this family on Lake Wallenpaupack. The brother and sister combo assisted each other on every flag that went up as they worked in unison to bring the lively fish from the depths of this Wayne County Lake. The jigging of rods in anticipation of a strike, running for flags, the laughter of children and the smell of hot dogs on the grill punctuated this total Legends Outdoors experience. These colorful photos show some of the catch for this day as there were an assortment of six species brought up through the holes totaling over 30 fish including largemouth bass, pickerel and panfish.
A Friday night wedding in Hawley was in store for Moehmet and so wasn’t a day out on frozen Lake Wallenpaupack with Legends Outdoors.

Legends Outdoors was glad to be a part of their celebration and also recognized the lenten season with their choice of foods for these happy clients as seen in the photos along with their variety of catches including perch, pickerel, smallmouth bass and bluegill.
Long time friends Peter and Ken spend a lot of time with each other doing a variety of activities and traveling to various places.

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.

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.
