Herring Fishing - CANARSIE PIER on a Cold Brooklyn NYC Winter Day. A quick stop off the Belt sits Canarsie Pier. Sharp cold winter day no wind and going to get some herring for dinner. Hope to get a few herring before dark. Waited a little and saw a triple header. Good news they are here. Caught one. Lost a rig. Casting, casting and casting. Finally herring for dinner and landed another. Dark and chilly have to go home. Of course we all love bountiful herring fishing there is another side to herring fishing. A couple of hours to kill and a couple herring to catch. Just a nice winter day. Have fun out there and we are always happy to share our experiences with all those around the world and hope you enjoyed the video as much as we did making it and remember always - Fish Your Way!

HERRING FISHING at Penn Pier - SHIRLEY CHISHOLM STATE PARK - Brooklyn Adventures in NYC. I had a few hours to spare today so I took a quick ride to check out the herring fishing at Penn Pier in Shirley Chisholm State Park located right in Brooklyn New York. It was a nice little walk to the pier and I was just mesmerized by time. Time past and time now. Me and my dad used to drive by the old landfill some 40 years ago on our way to Sheepshead Bay. We would roll the windows up. A stink far worse then me after two days of bunker fishing and wearing the same threads... I would gaze half asleep high in the mounds and see gulls peppered in the sunrise picking at garbage. My imagination if I was awake, and dreams if I was asleep, were on big blackfish, sea bass, or porgies. Dreams of flipping endless fish over the rails of the Jet or even better calling for Mike the mate for the net. Our favorite boat.

Shirley Chisholm State Park used to be a big old landfill. Never in my dreams or thoughts could I imagine walking through this landfill to scout for herring. We can now. I can imagine and dream about herring and big striped bass in Shirley Chisholm State Park today, right now, its already happened. Cool stuff. I would like to thank all those involved for making this happen. Have fun out there and we are always happy to share our experiences with all those around the world and hope you enjoyed the video as much as we did making it and remember always - Fish Your Way!

Herring Fishing - HOW TO SETUP A SIMPLE SABIKI RIG - Simple Fast Fish Rigs. Herring fishing like any fishing can be as simple or as complex as you make it. The herring fishing I like to keep simple. But no matter how you cut the herring fishing you need a sabiki rig for herring. A five drop sabiki rig is fine with me but if you are looking for maximum yield you may want to double or even triple the drops as many people do. Remember if you lose a triple herring rig you lose 3 rigs and another 10 bucks in flashers and lights. I will often use a flasher which is optional. Many folks will use 2, 3 or even 4 with multiple rigs along with flashing lights. For long casting you may want to leave the flasher off and work with a single rig. I have no preference to the brand of rig but often pay attention to the hook size. Large hooks are better for holding those herring on the way up. Smaller may be better for hooking up with more herring. A US size #6 or #4 is my preference but #8 is quite ideal.

Most the time I just use what I have laying around. We set up a simple sabiki rig for herring in this video so you get an idea of the rig used. When you take your herring fishing to the next level check out what the herring high hooks are doing and you will be filling up buckets before you know it. Have fun out there and we are always happy to share our experiences with all those around the world and hope you enjoyed the video as much as we did making it and remember always - Fish Your Way!

WINTER LARGEMOUTH BASS - COLDWATER WORM FISHING DEEP TIMBER & TREES. It was a cold winter day and I enjoyed fishing it. It was better then most winter days as it yielded a couple of largemouth bass. Winter fishing is quite a different experience then summer fishing. Most days are just that. About the day. This day was slow and cold, and luckily no ice. I decided to work some fallen trees and deep shoreline timber in hopes to draw the the strike of anything willing to bite. Worked the worm deep in the fallen trees and limbs slow and hanging hitting every angle I could until I could get one to strike. And that they did.

Back to the day. Overcast, cold and windy. Super walk. Making up names for the birds and foliage as I trekked on my merry way. Dipped in the water. Fished. Walked. Repeat. That's how I fish winter. Have fun out there and we are always happy to share our experiences with all those around the world and hope you enjoyed the video as much as we did making it and remember always - Fish Your Way!

Walking & Herring Fishing - EMMONS AVE PIERS in SHEEPSHEAD BAY - Brooklyn NYC Adventures. The new moon may have put a hold on the herring fishing but I did not let the moon put a hold on me. Grabbed my favorite herring outfit and drove to Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn New York City NY. I did very little fishing and took a nice walk along Emmons Avenue checking out the old sites. It was all just as exciting as when I was seven years old. I would have loved to see the fishing boats come to port with the catch but it is a weekday in winter so I will have to wait another day. While walking I noticed most of the old tackle shops are still there which was way cool and saw the new placard which I loved at pier 9. I was caught up in the walk so I did not do to much fishing but the herring seemed turned off right now anyways. It was a nice day. Have fun out there and we are always happy to share our experiences with all those around the world and hope you enjoyed the video as much as we did making it and remember always - Fish Your Way!

ROD & REEL - The MOST ACTIVELY USED VINTAGE FISHING TACKLE COLLECTION on the INTERNET!!! Several times a month I get asked to do a video about the fishing gear I use. This video although RUFF was a long undertaking. It took some years to create but here it is. A small part of my vintage rod and reel collection. Join us as we take a step away from the pack. Many setups are left out but we covered most of the actively used rod and reel combos in many of the videos we made. Some use one. Many talk some. Most use none. I will whole heartily proclaim this as the largest vintage actively used tackle collection on the internet. Many of the setups from saltwater, freshwater to fly predate my birth. Some of the rod reel combo's I had at a early age thus the learning curve came natural. A few of the pieces I just acquired and anticipate on using this season.

SALTWATER GEAR: 01:20​
FRESHWATER GEAR: 15:15​
FLY GEAR: 19:30​

I separate this video in three segments with time stamps above. You can watch the segment you are currently interested in and come back later as your particular fishing interest peaks. I try to keep things simple and for the beginner angler I would suggest a standard commonly used spinning setup to begin your journey in fishing. Backlashes, drag burnouts, maintenance and simple complexities are entwined in the use of older gear. It is a art all in its own. There exists a great degree of skill one must attain with use and time. I hope you enjoy and feel free to share your collection and favorite rod and reel combos. We would love to hear. Have fun out there and we are always happy to share our experiences with all those around the world and hope you enjoyed the video as much as we did making it and remember always - Fish Your Way!

HOW to STRAIGHTEN MONOFILAMENT FISHING LINE - REMOVE TWISTS COILS & MEMORY from CURLY MONO FAST!!! Starting the day with curly twisted monofilament fishing line is no way to fish. Before I fish with monofilament line I will give it a good stretch. Simply attach a lure or loop to your car antenna or a post or fence near by and with a slightly tight drag walk back a casting length of line. Grab hold of your mono just above your reel and give your monofilament a good bunch of firm pulls. That will remove any memory, coils, twists, and straighten out a good working length of monofilament fishing line.

If your monofilament line is badly twisted start with a loop and attach to your car antenna, fence, post or tree limb. Do all the same as above. However, the next step you want to place your rod down, walk to your attachment point, and manually remove the loop from your antenna. Walk back to your rod, hold in the breeze for a half a minute or more, and finally reel in. This stretching process should get most the twists out but badly twisted line works best with the extra step and sometimes takes a second or third take. In the end you will be glad you took the time to straighten your mono. Nothing is more quick to stop a fishing outing then fishing with badly twisted coiled monofilament line.

Other benefits of this process will yield a working knowledge of your drags functionality and the overall general condition of your monofilament fishing line. You will directly feel your drags performance and abrasions on your mono line all in addition to starting the day with coil free, twist free and memory free line. You should be good fishing until the big one takes and repeats this grand process for you. Have fun out there and we are always happy to share our experiences with all those around the world and hope you enjoyed the video as much as we did making it and remember always - Fish Your Way!

Had a bit of everything today - bass, crappie, bluegill, perch. Oddly no pickerel. However, I did have one joy the big old rap the other day!
