The video is divided mainly in two parts: (1) Introduction (0:00-1:10), and (2) Fishing (1:11-12:30).Don't forget to watch it in HD quality (1080p50)! If you enjoy watching my videos, please support my YouTube Channel by liking and subscribing.


The main goal for the day was to catch some Northern Snakehead (Channa argus). However, my father and I shifted goals for Multi-Species Fishing after the first couple hours.


My setup for this fishing session consisted of a Cortland Endurance 9' noodle rod with a Shimano Symetre 4000FL and 12lbs Berkley Vanish Fluorocarbon line. Throughout the course of the day, I used the following types of baits/lures: (1) A Zoom Fluke, Texas rigged on a 5/0 Gamakatsu hook; (2) a size #6 Eagle Claw hook with a piece of nightcrawler or Mulberry; and (3) a 1/64 oz. Trout Magnet jighead with a 1" Gulp! Alive Minnow.  


Since my father never caught a Northern Snakehead in his life, I decided to take him down to Meadow Lake in South Philadelphia to fish for them. We started our day with Zoom Flukes on a size 5/0 wide gap Gamakatsu hook. We fished for about two hours without a single Snakehead bite; thus, we finally decided to switch to Multi-Species fishing! 

The action was considerably hot around the second and third bridges, which would be location 4 on this map. I ended up catching a few Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, and Black Crappie there. 

Soon after, I spotted a Mulberry tree hanging onto the Creek. I just couldn't resist the temptation of easily catching a Carp under it; therefore, I switched gears to Mulberry Carp fishing. Heh. I ended up landing a nice Carp on a single Mulberry! That concluded my session for the day


Below are the photos for this fishing session:

My "Mulberry Carp" at Meadow Lake. This fish was caught on a single Mulberry. No chumming necessary. :)

My biggest Largemouth Bass of the day. This fish was caught on a piece of nightcrawler by the second bridge. 

Best of luck for all of us,

Long Days and Pleasant Nights,
