You were on them pretty good and your partner caught some good ones too.
I know people get out of sorts if fishing locations are shared but in Chicago itâ€™s not like Howard and McCormick are hard to find. This past summer I was cleaning up on the panfish in a local body of water using my 3 way rig. I told just about everyone I encountered on the water about it. Never once did I see anyone using it or fishing in the spots I shared.
Thatâ€™s right since google earth There really arenâ€™t many secret spots out there
I was able to get the drone footage because it connects to my cell phone via WiFi and an app. Through my cellphone while Iâ€™m flying I can see what the drone sees as it is saving to my phone. Thanks for the kind words

The under water shots are mostly with my goprohero 3plus I also have a goprohero 8 but if I were to buy a new one Iâ€™d get a few GoPro 7 or just one GoPro 7 itâ€™s not that far behind tech wise. I also use my iPhone 7 a lot and edit and put all my videos out through my cell phone which is essentially my computer.

Thank you sir! That it did. It didnâ€™t hurt as much knowing I had the footage of a child hood hole.

Geo, love to see your reports, Miss the longer, more readable ones though, tend to fast forward to the good parts of the vids. (not a fan of fishing videos, But you give me underwater shots, and now above water views
You can catch any fish, anywhere, anytime, on any lure, and on any rod and reel (carp on a kids reel), year round.
Those are some impressive winter Crappies!
Sorry bout the drone but till you can cast, and land a fish from it, its just a distraction from fishin
I'd have tied on a treble hooked crank and plowed the water till i snagged it, or till it got dark
Iâ€™m learning to manage my time better. Iâ€™ve had a hell of a lot of stress the last few years working two jobs and trying to make things work. Now I have one, but financially still am the only provider. A balance of having enough money to get by and happiness to let the mind be free spend time with my two kids and balance my fishing lifestyle into the mix. Is what I slowly began to grasp after almost losing myself mentally just chasing money. I myself truly miss being able to sit and read through a well written report, I await the time I can allow that into my schedule again. For now things are slowly coming around full circle. This blessing of life we all have and need to learn to enjoy. Itâ€™s not as short as many make out. In fact itâ€™s the longest thing any one of us will ever experience. And though that I look to establish my artsy and creative side and bring back the time I did things for fun. I donâ€™t need to get paid to something when Iâ€™m having so much fun enjoying it. Chasing money all the time led me to a place where I wouldnâ€™t do anything without it benefiting me. Thatâ€™s not a place no one should be.
It would be an honor to showcase you and document your experience on busse lake this year jim. It would most entirely be filming of you, You benefited so many of us over the years. To have it set in video for many people to see in the coming years would be so grand
