Caught this nice bass today on Burden Lake, put up a great fight.

Also was on the hunt for native trout in some creeks by my house during the week and finally caught one on the fly rod.

Very nice smallmouth.

9/6-went out solo on the East Branch. There were other anglers out as well and were hard to avoid as I was bass fishing with a plastic worm. So I changed tactics and started trolling the deepest section of the reservoir from the dam to the end of the eastern cove. I have caught walleyes here and I was hoping I would hook into one. Finally, after my third round trip I hooked something big.

I wasn't planning on trolling and didn't set up my rod holder before starting. When the fish hit I was lucky to grab my rod before it went overboard. Finally got a good grip and the fish tore into the drag with 2 long runs. Then it shook it's head and was off. Second big walleye I've lost at the EB this year. That's what sucks about trolling, you entice big fish but it's up to the fish to hook itself because you aren't holding the rod when they hit.

I’ve never caught a walleye, and not for lack of trying. The Tomhannock Reservoir is close to me and supposedly holds some huge ones but I haven’t had any luck there.

We have caught a few nice ones at the EB.

After my buddy caught that one I hooked another right off that brush pile in the background

Camped at Forked Lake in the Adirondacks for two days. Really beautiful lake and the trees are just starting to turn.

We were hoping to catch Landlocked Salmon but didn’t get any hits so we started targeting Bass instead. Lots of action but only landed one the first night. Then after I caught it my pole fell out of the canoe into the water. We went back in and set up camp for the night. Next morning we went looking for my pole and I spotted the hula popper floating about two feet underwater in weeds, was very lucky.

After this we went fishing and caught seven. Also hooked something huge that dragged the boat for a while before I lost it.
