My Underwater shots from today. Bluegills, Northerns.

16 posts in this topic

I got the chance to get out for 2 hours this morning. I caught some average size bluegills inbetween them being scooted away by northerns that I also captured on video. Bluegills were biting waxworms in 17 feet, the Northern Pike were probably biting the bluegills.

By the way, as far off as the jig looks... it was only 3 feet from the camera.

I always love watching when the fish get caught and yanked up. Its like they get warped into a new dimension

Fish tv coming to lake near you! smile I love to watch fish on that thing, it seems like the hours go by in minutes when I take the camera with. Good videos, I love to see the northerns swim through.

Awesome vids. Love when they get taken up like that. It's like your an alien grabbing them. The third Bluegill one is my favorite.

I posted it so it's a little easier to view, hope you don't mind.

Hey Thanks! I forgot I could do them that way.

The DVR is really cool. It's one thing to watch it all happen on the ice and a whole different thing to be able to watch them over and over.... oh, and share.

If you have a video camera with a "video in" jack you can do the same thing. I find the DVR more convenient.

Those are fun to watch. What I'm impressed with is how aggressive those gills are!

Thanks sandmannd, I've edited the original post to embed the videos

They are actually much sharper and clearer on my own computer. Youtube takes away some of the quality. The video labeled 2 Northern Pike has two on it swimming along together but the closer one is about all you see. The other is further away and swimming a little ahead of the near one, but hard to see.

The gills were quite aggressive at times and at other times seemed to care less.

Thanks sandmannd and dtro for the help.

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
