Hello, Blog Readers!
--- October 2nd, 2011 ---
I went fishing with Rob Z. and Nadir G. at the Walnut Street bridge, on the Schuylkill Banks. Sometimes it's nice to fish alone -- calm, peaceful; however, fishing with friends can also be lots of fun.
For this time of the year, the weather was pretty chilly already! You guys can even see my friend Nadir G. wearing some heavy clothes.
Here's an extra -- my friend Nadir G. filmed me catching a fish on September 18th. He loves to film around, seriously...
I have to say that his videos always crack me up! Hahaha. I always end up laughing after watching them. They are low-quality; totally home-made and unexpected; however, that's why they are so much fun.

I decided to go fishing with a friend at the "Fisherman Statue" portion of the Schuylkill River (close to the Fairmount Dam). As you can see below, it's a very nice environment to fish at, not to mention that you can have a wonderful view of the Fairmount Dam.
I ended the day with a couple Channel Catfish (Biggest at 4.2lb), and a lot of small Stripped Bass. This is, indeed, a good surprise. After all, it truly proves that some of the Striped Bass that do the run on Spring and Fall have really adapted to fresh water over the years. They are all lurking around the dam now. =)
Pictures are below:

After a long time, the date of the Philly Fishing Fest finally arrived! The Fish Fest is an event that happens yearly on the Schuylkill Banks -- every Fall. For more details, you can click here.
If you missed it this year, don't panic! There will be one next year, and so on. The best way for you to know when is it going to be is to subscribe to the Schuylkill Banks website using the link above. The webmaster will eventually send you e-mails about different events on the Schuylkill Banks, which is nice and informative.
Here is a link for more pictures (other than the ones below) on the Fish Fest that happened this year. There's also a video on that webpage that is pretty neat! You should definitely check it out.
My friend Nadir G. did a fun video of me getting some action there (again -- Hilarious!):
Best of luck for all of us!
Long Days and Pleasant Nights,
