Fishing Adventures

Junction City Pond

Yesterday I purchased myself a brand new toy, a Kodak Playsport camcorder, apparently its waterproof, shockproof and dust proof, and for 80 dollars at Best Buy it was a pretty sweet deal. Then today my mom got her fishing license and  in the afternoon we decided to fish the local trout pond, Junction City Pond. This pond is stocked regularly with trout and has a ton of bank access, also it’s only about five miles from the town of Eugene, which is very convenient! When we got there the banks were lined with powerbait chuckers and a few fly fishermen. I brought my Pontoon so i could troll a woolly bugger, which always works for stocked places and even at places that arnt stocked. I dont know how to fly fish yet, but i still enjoy trolling flies on my ultra light spinning set up. On this day I managed to bring two stockers to the boat, but i had countless bites that didnt stick. The bankies from what i seen didnt have much luck, and my step dad and mother were both skunked using night crawlers on the bottom and under a bobber. We werent there for too long but still had a good time.

I filmed a few clips of the Ospreys and also one of the pond. I didnt edit the clip or anything just tossed them up as is. Ill be getting a hat mount soon so ill be getting action shots and all that cool stuff! Didnt video the fish they were your ordinary stocked rainbow trout. But since a post isnt complete with out some fish porn ill add a picture of a 3lb bass I caught earlier in the week at private pond my friend Dave has in his back yard!

As always tight lines! And Thanks for reading!

  1. the playsport’s a great camera, most of the videos on my youtube acct were shot on the playsport. just be easy on the USB/charge port… it’s not all that easy to repair, even for someone like me that’s done that type of thing a couple hundred times….

  3. Busy Ospreys, must have chicks in the nest. We’ve got ospreys fishing the pond off back deck. It has a couple hundred of the big orange goldfish schooled and circling the banks. Ospreys have easy picking with them. I need to get one carrying off a big orange fish. I bought a chest harness for a video camera I bought and like that mount best. Not sure if you can get it for your brand, but worth a look.
