  • Kayak Fishing on Lake Luzerne

    Kayak Fishing on Lake Luzerne

    June 24th, just a few days after the bass season officially opened in NYS.  Last night there was a light wind that allowed me to drift as if I had an electric motor.  All I had to do was keep the boat angled toward shore.  Lake Luzerne is a great lake to fish especially by kayak or canoe.  Most bass average from 2 to 5 pounds.  Pike in the mid 20 to low 30 inch range.  My biggest largemouth to date,  (8 pounds) came from Lake Luzerne.  In a few weeks when the top water fishing starts getting good, try   Lake Luzerne I don't think you'll be disappointed.  

  • Harvesting Garlic Scape's

    Garlic Growers, its that time of the year to think about harvesting your Scapes.  If you don't grow garlic and have a friend that does, the attached video shows you what to do with them.   My recommedation, scape pesto.

  • Adirondack Native

    Adirondack Native

    Todays weather kept me from my regular duties and allowed me to try out some new waters that i've been wanting to fish for a long time.  Rain showers and downpours did not deter me from fishing this Wilderness Area stream. The month of June is by far the best month of the year to fish the Adirondacks. Streams are in great shape, smorgasbord of bugs always hatching and water temps that keep fish active.  Today, I used a partridge bead head nymph and ended up with some nice brookies.  We still have a few weeks left and if the weather holds, time in July to go on a trip.  Contact me if you're interested.
