Carl and Matt are long time clients from Virginia who take annual treks to Lake Wallenpaupack for multi-day adventures. The year of 2015 was no different as April was their month of choice to have their outing. They were faced with a multitude of factors during these five days as the winds blew from multiple directions, rains were from a drizzle to pouring, skies were from cloudy to blue and clear, the temperatures were from the 30’s to light jacket weather and everything in between! They fished on during the different stages and persevered by landing quite a variety of species and numbers too boot including 25 striped bass with the biggest being 35″ long and several other really nice sized ones, a 27″ pickerel, some hefty crappie, several smallmouth bass, a few perch and a rainbow trout was thrown into the mix. This was to be a most memorable trip for these two as sharing time on the water, enjoying the sights and sounds of springtime on this scenic lake and the surrounding area along with other activities sure made for one awesome trip to NE Pennsylvania. We at Legends Outdoors look forward to seeing Matt and Carl again for 2016!
Striper Madness has started in 2015! George getting the taste of it approximately a year ago was anticipating another crack at it this spring and the day of the trip finally arrived after a very bitter winter in Northeast PA. The day started with a drizzle, then overcast and turning to mostly sunny with an off and on breeze. George fished hard throughout the day and stuck with the pattern and program in hopes of that unmistakable striped bass bite. The patience and perseverance paid off as George hauled in a pair of stripers weighing 6.63# and 6.54#. He also mustered up a healthy walleye that was 4.49# and two plump smallmouth bass during the outing.
Dave and Chris not so long ago were fishing Lake Wallenpaupack with Legends Outdoors through a thick floor of ice and wanted to also to try it via the open water. They set a date and headed out recently on a dead calm, comfortable temperatured, mostly overcast skied day making it an ideal fishing scenario. By finesse fishing, they produced a 50 fish day of hefty crappie, jumbo perch, rockbass and smallmouth bass as they compiled a mess of fillets for this chef by trade to prepare for several meals in the days to come. It was an outstanding spring day out for this couple as they enjoyed the sun, sights and sounds of a spectacular day on the water.
Repeat clients, Tom and his two sons Tom and Carmen took one of their multiple trips per year adventures this April with Legends Outdoors. A gloomy day with frigid water temperatures put no fear into these three anglers as they adapted to changing conditions and finessed their way to an approximate 40 fish day. They hammered out a nice pile of crappie, perch, smallmouth bass and a stud pickerel in their catch! Another great kickoff to the 2015 season for this happy family!
Ken and his son Dylan ventured west from New Jersey to have a crack at some springtime action on Lake Wallenpaupack. Dylan is a member of the New Jersey Federation and an up and coming angler on the bass fishing scene. The duo learned cold water, light line tactics to entice about a baker’s dozen of fish today that included a slammer walleye, a solid brown trout, smallmouth bass, sucker and fall fish. A great way for a father and son to spend a sunny April day together.
Smoothie typically kicks off the open water season each year and 2015 was no different! As a client now for 20 years he ventured out with the hopes that another first time out for the season would be another successful trip. The cloudy, foggy and drizzly day provided a shroud of erieness but Smoothie fished vigorously through the London type weather and caught a variety of fish such as walleye, perch, brown trout and fall fish. A great way to kick off the 2015 season!

Jim along with his children Sasha and Pavel returned for another season to do some ice fishing with Legends Outdoors on a March day. This time around they would be singing the “blues” for a good reason! Their day was filled with consistent action from bluegills via the jig rod. The icing on the cake was a hefty plump pickerel landed on a tip up. Although the day was windy and cold; blue skies and sunshine mixed with freshly grilled hot dogs and hamburgers warmed their day.
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!
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!
