Interview with Pennsylvania's Hooked Fishing
I first discovered Hooked Fishing when I stumbled upon a YouTube video of Adam Jeannette landing a giant Pennsylvania muskie. I recently had the chance to interview Adam and learned about Hooked Fishing and the adventures of he and his fishing partner, Vinny Howells.
One of the things I love about the current state of fishing is the passion of fishing's youth movement. The creative energy of the young men and women in fishing today is energizing even for us "old guys". Hooked Fishing is a great example of why the future of fishing is so bright. Enjoy the interview.
GFN: Who exactly is Hooked Fishing?
Hooked Fishing is two friends whose goal is to educate and entertain fishermen around the world with both educational videos that entertain as well. I am a high school senior who is currently 17 years old. Vinny Howells is my partner with the channel and he is a college junior who is 20 years old.
GFN: What got you started producing YouTube videos?
We both went to the same High School and became friends when Vinny was a senior and I was a freshman in High School. From there, we started fishing together and about a year and a half ago, he had the idea to film all of our fishing adventures. We had no idea it would get this far!
GFN: Living in western PA, what do you consider your home waters?
Our "home waters" here are the Ohio River, Beaver River, Shenango River, Shengo Lake and Lake Arthur. Those are just the major waters around us that we fish most. We also fish Brady's Run Lake, Brush Creek, Connequenessing Creek, and all the waters around Presque Isle in Erie.
GFN: What’s your favorite species to target?
Our favorite species to target by far is Largemouth Bass. They are very aggressive feeders and make for a fun fight!
GFN: Now, I would like to highlight three of my favorite videos you have done so far. The first video is your giant muskie. Give us a preview of what’s in the video and the story behind that impressive catch.
On a cold day in October, 2015, my Uncle Mike and I headed off to the Shenango Dam. We began as we normally would on any day we fish there by throwing Rapala's around to see what will strike. When we arrived however, we saw a feeding frenzy of some sort down in the water by the dam. My 12th cast in, I thought I had a snag. Disgusted, I pulled hard on it and the "snag" began to swim. I turned on my GoPro and the rest is history. An absolute beast of a musky caught and released, all on film.
GFN: You also have a video from 2015 on a trip to Pymatuning Lake. Tell us about that Lake and your trip.
The trip to pymatuning lake was planned as a trip to celebrate my 16th birthday. We rented a small 14 ft boat and set out in the morning to catch a variety of fish. The lake itself is a pretty big lake with lots of weed beds and good structure. We started off trolling for musky with no luck so I switched to targeting bass. I got a pretty nice one on an original purple floating Rapala. Then we drifted some night crawlers which resulted in a nice white bass and hooking into a giant...
GFN: You just introduced your first vlog about a trip to Lake Arthur for bass. Tell us about fishing that Lake.
Lake Arthur is our "home lake." It is a pretty large lake that holds some large bass. There are a lot of 2-3 pound bass throughout the lake but there are also many 5+ pounders spread out across the lake. This lake is also a great frog lake because of the very thick Lilly pads found in different locations across the lake. We like to focus on the Lilly pad areas when we fish since they seem to hold the most bass due to the all the weeds and lilly pads that make for good structure. Also, many fallen trees in the water make for great flipping and pitching fishing.
GFN: What should we expect new from Hooked Fishing this year?
You can expect more bass fishing from us along with more vlogs, more trips out on our boat (Tha Hookah), and some more videos from different parts of the country! We will be going to iCast in just a week so we will have some awesome videos from that once in a lifetime experience!
