August 3rd, 2020 (Session 52) – Fulfilling my promise to my followers on Instagram, I went to some weedy swamps in Philadelphia for some “TOP WATER EXPROSIONS!!!” Read more about it below:

Did you know that…?

🎑…The pink vintage Arbogast Jitterbug portrayed in the video is a very old model. Not only the lure is extremely difficult to find, but the last one was sold on eBay for $46.50 ( That’s why I don’t use that lure often — I don’t want to lose it. 😅
🎑…The law in Pennsylvania states that an angler SHOULD kill a Northern Snakehead (Channa argus) if caught in the waters of the commonwealth, meaning that the angler has the choice of releasing the fish if he/she only practices CPR. At the John Heinz Wildlife Refuge — where the video was shot, they have stricter rules that go over the state rules. If an angler catches a Northern Snakehead in the refuge, they MUST kill it — without exceptions.
🎑…Occasionally, a Bowfin (Amia calva) is caught at the John Heinz Wildlife Refuge. The fish is classified as “candidate” in Pennsylvania, meaning that its population has been in decline over the years.
