Bass Opener, Photo shoot and New Video!

Wow, nearly a month since I’ve last made a post. There may be a shortage of updates, but not of fishing!

Bass fishing season opened up where I live on June 25th and I was in Orillia, ON for opener to help out with the Big Brothers & Sisters of York and my friend Dave Chong’s annual: Catch A Dream Kids Fishing Derby. The rain poured down all morning, but the smiles and fun shone through a gloomy day and made for a wonderful day of fishing! I fished with my friend Mark Kulik and 3 youngsters that had never fished before. Lots of fish were caught including; bass, perch and rock bass. We had a great time, and I hope to get ahold of some photos from the event soon. It was worth driving several hours to help some kids have the opportunity to get out fishing for the first time. I will be there next year for sure!

Since then, I have been bass and pike fishing every weekend from my kayak and even some week nights when possible. Here are a few photos from my excursions:

I also did a photoshoot with Dan McCully of McCully Images, here are a few photos:

You can check out more in the Facebook album.

This past weekend I made my first kayak video. All footage is from yesterday, and I stayed up way too late editing to get it done because I was excited to share the whole kayaking experience! So please let me know what you think!

I am always staying up-to-date posting on Facebook and Twitter, so feel free to follow along there.

Happy fishing!


  1. Hi there,

    I love these kayak and often thought about buying one.
    But there is way too many crocodiles in the water to use them where I fish…
    Makes me jealous of you.

    Have a good day.

  2. Ashley, I loved your new pictures and video! They are great, i enjoyed them very much. My brother, who lives in Ukraine, loves fishing, but lakes there are very “overfished”. I will send him your pics and video, i am sure he will enjoy looking at them. Cheers
