Creekside- 6.28.11 Getting the BIG ones!!

Jozee-

Today was the day I was going to catch a Longnosed Gar! No really that’s what I was going for..in the beginning.

Last night I stopped at The Ol’ Dutchman bait shop to find a minnow lewer, which I found. I looked through the bargain bin and found the one below. I was happy to find one for a good price. Today when I showed up I put the little guy on and cast out, I snagged a nice +18” Carp right off of. Even though I snagged him I got em! The only downside was he was a slippery little burger and we could only manage a shakey at best picture. After that I wondered around for a few trying to see a Gar NOTHING not one could be seen. So I moved down by the downed tree cast out and found this little bass. Today was the day that I got the 2 biggest fish in the Three Amigos Blog’s history! Bam I am WINNING

The Three Amigos go North

Cody -
I took my 2 year old son, 4 and 9 year old nieces fishing at my aunt and uncle's pond on Friday.  My son had been asking me for a while to take him out, and boy did we have fun.  We caught a lot of blue gill and a few bass.  My wife, who doesn't want anything to do with fishing, even pulled out a big bass while holding my cane pole while I was taking a fish off the hook for one of the kids.  I set each of the kids up with a bobber and trout worm, when I had the time I through a spinner bait out to see if I could get a bite.  The kids had bite after bite on the worms, while I didn't catch anything with the fake lures.  After my wife took the younger kids back home my 9 year old niece and I continued to fish.  I switch over to a bobber and worm and then caught my fair share also.  My son had so much fun he cried all the way back home, and wants to go again soon.  It was great fun being a part of the next generation of fishermen/women.





















Creekside- 6.27.11 Jozee's Birthday Fishing!

Cody-


Today we went back to Creek side.  I was a bit skeptic when I was told that's where we were going because we didn't see anything there last time.  Once we got there, however, my thoughts changed.  We started getting bites almost immediately.  I started out using a bobber and wax worm, and got two bites right off the bat.  Both times the fish stripped the hook clean.  Unfortunately I only had two wax worms, so I switch to a night crawler to no avail.  After I saw Jozee getting bites with his crank bait I switch to a fake worm and started to drag it along the bottom of the creek.  We continued to get bites the rest of the time we were out, but never were able to pull anything up to the dock.  We even saw another Long Nose Gar, which is on of the coolest looking fish I have ever seen.  I think we will be heading back to Creek side again tomorrow to see if we can bring one of those Gar's up onto the dock.


Jozee-


I have vowed that "I will pull up a Gar!" I pulled one out of the water- It got hooked on my crank bait but the hook did'nt set in. I was pumped that I did just that. Tomorrow it is on..

Cody-
    Today we drove out to **A Church* just to find out that Jeff has once again discovered a private pond that does not allow fishing.  We then detoured to Friendship Park and hiked down to the Y of Big Walnut Creek.  Jeff and Jozee again were trying there luck with the spinner bail, with no avail.  I used a bobber and night crawler combination and was able to catch one sunfish.  All in all we spent a lot of time driving and walking and not much time fishing, but we still had fun and know of a new spot to try again in the future. 




Jozee-
   I saw a Longnose Gar today, WOW! I have never seen one in my Life..period NEVER. It was a wonderful fish to see in real life. It was about 50 Ft behind me in the picture right along the sandbar drop off. Friendship park keeps on making me want to go back..We see so many species of fish floating around but cant seem to nab one. All I can say is if you have more time than we Amigos do during our lunch break to fish it go El Guapo! Take it to the creek!!


Update: I just found this picture of jeff climbing a kids wall at the park @ friendship park.. I just had to post it up.. :p

Around Columubs, Ohio 6.22.11

Jeff-

       Today the Amigos headed out to Faith Ministry Church ponds off of Agler Rd. in Columubs, Ohio.  From Google maps it looked like it could have been public property, however, after arriving at the church parking lot and heading back to the ponds we discovered signs posted that stated : Hunting, fishing and trapping of any sorts are not permitted.  So on to plan B, a leg of Alum Creek.  We parked at the Willis Sports Center and headed back to what the GPS showed to be a creek.  Once we got to the crevice that was to be the creek, there was no water in it.  Bad GPS!!  Plan C, Alum Creek runs along the north side of 670 pretty close to the ODU campus.  So we parked near the bike path and headed to the creek.  Water was up and current was moving at a pretty good clip.  No fish to be caught although Jr. provided the entertainment.  Just as we were packing up to head home Jr. lets his line out in the current just to see how far it would go.  After letting out 100-150 yards of fishing line he starts reeling it in.  This is the good part.  About half way in on his retrieval he gets the good idea to jerk in the line.  Jr. ends up with a good bit of line up around the reel and tangled.  Somehow it was tangled around the reel and the main line above the reel.  Needless to say but I am going to say it anyway, Jr. lost a good amount of line!  Sorry no fish to report on this trip.  Better luck tomorrow.

Above Ground Retention Ponds, Sunbury Ohio- 6.21.11

Jozee-

Last night I went fishing with my friend Pastor Dwayne Carson, his son and David. We went up to the above ground retention ponds, Sunbury Ohio. This place is becoming one of my favorite places to fish because of the amount of fish you can catch in the amount of time.. If you were to take the kids up it would be a good idea to put a life jacket on them. Because the ponds are above ground they have a ledge were you sit is 15’-20’ and could get crowded if a lot of people are with you. The water is clean and is right inside of town, you would never think that they were there. 2 of us used bobber/ worm combos and were getting fish the whole time (7 David, 9-10 Dwayne Est.) but with the beetle spins I was able to catch one Smallmouth.. The fishing was good, the story’s been great the Dwayneisms were funny and vary insightful (Dwayne shared how fishing is like dating) I don’t want to say more about it cause it may ruin his book deal…lol

If you are in/ around Sunbury GO..NOW and fish at the above ground retention ponds you will not regret it..

Woodside Green South 6.21.11

Cody-

       Today we went back to the Woodside Green South public pond for another round of fishing.  I went with the tried and true bobber and wax worm rig, while Jeff and Jozee tired their luck with the beetle spins.  I had a good day catching quite a few decent size bluegill, Jeff and Jozee on the other hand missed out.  Neither of them even had a bite.  This is very discouraging as we were hoping this pond housed some bass.  However, it will not keep us from trying again soon.








Jeff-

      Today Jr. and I decided to forgo fishing for the easy bluegills and used beetle spins for bass.  We struck out using several different colors, however, Cody was catching bluegills left and right (see photos above..) from the southwest corner of the pond near the lily pads about 8 feet off the shore.
