Basic Fishing Gear : How to Cast Conventional Fishing Reels

Now, this could be a little more challenging for you What we're going to talk about is actually setting up to cast conventional tackle, such as this outfit right here

If you do a lot of casting and then you really don't need a conventional reel, then spinning is probably the way to go for you But, there's times where you need a little bit heavier gear or you need a reel that's got more line capacity Then, you've got to be able to cast this thing Now, the first thing you do on a conventional reel because it's a revolving spool is you take your thumb and you actually put pressure on the spool itself Then, the next thing you do is you flip this lever which actually puts the reel into freeze spool

In other words, it's free to cast at this time Now, it's kind of a combination of thumb control on the spool So, when you go to cast you kind of hold the rod back a little bit and you kind of ease it out When you ease it out, you're actually going to momentarily take your thumb off the spool And, then lightly ride the spool as the line goes out

Here, you're going to need a little bit heavier weight in order to accomplish this But, as that line goes out you're actually controlling the speed of that spool And, when the bait hits the water The second it hits the water you're going to freeze the spool And, that keeps this reel from revolving and getting bird's nested

Responding to the Risks of Marine Debris: Derelict Fishing Gear

So in Puget Sound when Iwe did a we did a sort of strategy session and we determined that shallow water derelict gill nets are where we were going to place our limited capacity and limited resources

These derelict gill nets are made a monofilament line, and they don't degrade in the environment–they're plastic So if you can picture a derelict gill net, basically, the fisherman willif he gets into trouble and he has to cut his net, they will remain sometimes suspended in the water column

And they become kind of traps for fish, and a diving birds and mammals Small fish will dart in and out of the mesh and predators will go after those fish and get captured in the nets And as those animals get captured a nets, then they become bait for more scavengers It's a self baiting situation, and they'll continue to fish indiscriminately for as long as they're down there We've removed nets that areclearly older than 20 years

We used to talk about this problem, and we would compare it toif you had a a lot of traps that were set in the forest, and they continued–and they were left or lost by the trapper and continuing to capture animals in the forest, there would be a huge outcry Well that's what's happening in Puget Sound nobody can see it except for divers

So what you have are these nets underwater completely unseen, causing huge amount of damage This program from the day one has been what we call a no fault program We understand the fisheries and we know that people inevitably will lose commercial fishing gear, so what we would like to do is involve as much of the commercial fishing industry in this project as possible We'd like to know from gill netters and crab fisherman where they lose gear, the causes of losing gear, what happens in their daily fishing activities that can result in lost gear, cause then maybe we can develop some policies programs or instructions that could reduce that gear loss Having the experienced divers are really important

These guys are harvest divers they spend half their life under water harvesting sea cucumbers, and urchins and other species–geoducks So they're very very comfortable underwater they know how to handle themselves And they're really capable working hard on bottom, which a typical sport diver would not be So these guys brought a lot to the the operation of the project They brought a lot of good ideas on how to stabilize the gear and bring it up in a safe manner, and it really went a long way toward making the program successful

The nets for the most part that we're picking up today are, uh, considered a legacy net and, uh, now they've kinda become assimilated into the natural environment, so you'll have a lot of growth on 'em And, uh, it'll actually look like part of the bottom now But, but it's still doin' still doin' the job even though there's a lot of sea growth on 'em They're designed so you can't even see 'em in the water column And we actually watched the gill netter drop it, lose it and we went back, you know, four hours later and there was alreadyalready dead fish in 'em These nets can be very large They can cover over vast areas They can obstruct access to little interstitial spaces, crevices, caves, things like that, the juvenile fish need for protection

So they do a lot more damage than just actually capturing and killing animals They actually degrade the habitat, and the service functions of those habitats that those animals depend upon One of the things we've noticed is when we pull those nets out, almost immediately, those areas start to recover, and it really restores the the habitat So far, in our organization, we've removed over 4,000 derelict gill nets from Puget Sound We think there are about 1000 left in Puget Sound

so we're making a lot of progress, and a lot of headway And now because the gill net fleet is smaller, and the fishing effort is lower, we have a pretty good handle on any newly lost nets We think there are about 10 to 30 lost gill nets every year in a pretty active fishing season So that's a pretty low number compared to what was happening in past years So, we're not seeing the kind of re-accumulation of these nets after we remove them

So once we remove them, the problem is solved That's the good news of this program When we pull one of these nets up off the bottom that are full of dead crabs and fish and birds and marine mammals, and we put in a plastic bag and send it to the landfill, I know when I go home at night that that nets not gonna kill any more animals at the bottom That's a really rewarding feeling

Street-Art stands up for the Deep Ocean

Today, the Street-Art community across Europe stands up against deep-water trawling which is the most destructive fishing method in history Member States of the European Union may adopt a law that would prohibit this method of fishing

An event organized by BLOOM across Europe on July 14, 2014 Deep trawling consists to fish with large weighted nets and kept open by two steel panels And all this plows the seabed, tearing everything in its path One of the major problems is the lack of selectivity It has been proven that for a dozen targeted species, over a hundred more are caught as bycatch It would be incredible if Portugal could convince other countries join the fight for the protection of deep oceans and against deep trawling

Italy has the opportunity during the Italian Presidency of the Council of European Ministers to intervene to unlock the deep fishing record and act for the protection of this ecosystem Germany played an important role in the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy We ask the government to defend with such energy the prohibition of fishing methods that destroy deep oceans Ban deep trawling now! Street-artists, European citizens and NGOs urge governments to make the right decision It concerns our future, it's at hand, you can not miss this opportunity

So, we ask you to ban deep trawling To put an end to the destruction of the deep oceans, sign the European petitions here

Deep Sea Fishing Big Fish for Mahi Mahi in Venice Louisiana

there's a guy from Texas that this is called a triple play but he uses a DOA Cal on his on a spinnerbait makes them all different kinds this is I mean I don't even know I'm not a bass fisherman but Colorado blades or diamond blades or whatnot it all depends on the vibration it gives and since the water so dirty here this is a great search bait because you can work it fast you can work it quick you hit all these little points all these little grass islands sticking up there's bait around them and hopefully there's some big fat redfish so we will see you find that green one of one there is oh look I got him over to the grass come on out maybe huddling in there was closer oh yeah there you go what's the cut you like to have yes I'm pretty good fish too is not that big Brett this mean here for me cuz they know they're gonna get eat it's pretty redfish eggs at least they're fat in here you find the right ones I think they'll be good still fat I don't know what they eat in here for crabs that's a little spinner Bank Snickers Snickers I like that there's your nice little pretty redfish look how gold they are in here he's a small one but you know in a tournament where your little spots on that side too but when you're in a tournament where there's not catching fish someplace like friendly meet you you kind of learn to appreciate fish like that but we're going to keep on fishing take a little break y'all stay tuned we'll be right back with some more addictive fishing right here from Venice Louisiana oh yeah that way out there all the way back in that pocket to the left on the right hand that little pocket on the right hand side up there he's in there oh no I know I know it's not real but I got it I gotta eat this or Stein who the shrimp underneath it he's coming right at us there is only in Venice baby only in then it's oh there's a stick there you know work ain't that big reading the other one all right and then you don't look too bad finance issue 25 mm-hmm there's plenty of those around that last tournament here when Travis and I were fishing we'd catch a 25 inches then we catch a 29 inch or 25 inches in the 29 inch ER and that went on and on and on it was not as fat hand beneath is good still a nice pretty redfish that's pretty one oh you want to move around since these are a little small but one thing in Venice here with the fish do they move north and south they'll either go up the marsh or down out towards the Gulf depend on have the salinity of the water at least that's that's my theory that's what I found and it's so far it's working but like I said we're going to show you something we went out fishing with a good buddy of mine captain Chris Harrison otherwise known as heavy for everybody that knows me out there and I talk about Louisiana I always bring heavy up and talk about him but he's a he is a hoot he's a character but we went out deep blue yesterday we went off tuna fishing and well let's just roll the tape and show you what we what we found right yeah look at here oh look out Sun and there's a tuna fish bait right there little baby hard tails that is the bait we are looking for – the grass we don't need any solid Travis no solid full stringer coming oh yeah talk to me mommy okay 3y always gonna take him place the hook I'm on the head we're down it's your steve until you pull straight and make sure the book doesn't go breaking the beat so you're gonna turn and then you'll skip on top of the water let's see if this is our lucky be lucky me lucky number nine you're always gonna throw him far away from the boat also story don't swim back in the props you get tangled in the prop some just hit it nothing on alright leave that ain't flying like a tennis there's a little you're foolish but I need before school there you go putting in the mouse oh the yellow pen number one let's try again Oh oh good we're good boys you see we're hooked up with what could be a Volkswagen down there yeah you only want to do one or two of these we're only in 7,000 feet of water you can't run that far yeah huh you get an inch you take three this guy look blue runner man big would you say heavy elephantine peanuts and they're scared of mice the smaller the big it's just as good at the big base but you want to do is pull up real slow the slower you pull up the less while and your take out you know you won't feel like you're gaming bitch Agoge where it happens well I hope y'all enjoyed that I'm about sore today so it was a it was a fun day out there y'all stay tuned we're gonna be right back and we did catch a few fish and check out what we found out in the ocean where all these fish were hanging around we'll be right back the guy here is the redfish welcome back hope you all have enjoyed the show so far we're still out doing the pre fishing and just for you know some information I want to give out when you're fishing Louisiana like this there's a lot of this grass like that's down here around us right now and I love looking for redfish around the grass that come up and they'll just kind of sit stationary a lot of times and that's why spinner bait works so good here because you can pull up spinner bait through the grass it's got a nice little gold flash to it and once they see the bait they they just they jump all over it well I told you we did catch a couple of fish on this trip and what we came up on was something that you you know I've only seen coming out of the Mississippi River great big old what you'll see check this out Blair you don't think that some of the best eating is a triple tail huh I'm not a good as a dolphin you think I like to trip up the I think Joe's tell some of the best eating in the Gulf Blair however thinks it's the Dorado well we're on our way to the to the tuna spot we come across this tree out here and there's tripletail there's dolphin I'm gonna go ahead and smack it smack me in dolphin out here you got an office I'm on a popping cork in five thousand foot there's a big one under him come on Rick I want that muffin won't that make each other my video all the garlic Dorado right here the Cana Dorado glad I'm looking at him run kind of get one to eat this if you throw it way out there if you're steady cat throw it further bland just steady we'll just keep it running on top of water don't junk the dosage on that we don't black areas bro finally got me a hookup well he can't be too bad huh little dolphin there's so many dolphin out there that is incredible don't leg out there we get you somewhere you really get about absolutely incredible so my stick this fish I'm Betty don't come up that time look at all the dolphin holy moly I want that dolphin right there I know sometimes they just don't eat them I'll see you join the ones that what you see them still no high blood I got tactic number two he's going to it he's going time thank you date it very odd it is better huh twist around the key to fishing is fishing where the fish are yeah you keen and fishing with Blair Wiggins put away them turn alright well there you go a little bold often offer the Gulf of Mexico in about six thousand feet of water and believe it or not this dude here ate a lot of mullet there's so many Bahama chubs running around here you can't hardly keep a bait down yeah offshore would not be fun that winds getting worse and worse oh okay you got it like that papi dude a little drag going out that might be a good fish what do you got a redfish Oh what is it nice one that's the common looking for names redfish and all that dig there we're going up here and get a flashing I think he's too bad dude Oh what do is write down assert frat level Louisiana redfish I think this would be a good one for heavy too huh yep he said he wanted two of them so we'll keep this one for heavy it's a heavy fish – you might want to put on a popping board you got another poppy nope well since I couldn't find any of those popping corks there's equalizers around I went to the next best thing which is the she-dog it's a top water plug makes a lot of noise and it's kind of a search base but we call a search bait something you can really cast out and work the area fast and that the fish are being aggressive which they are because they've hit Travis's cork a couple of times they should eat this top water plugs so let's uh let's see what happens various and Poppy's our craziest thing mr ed fish would you do the shrimp button tail off and turn it around yeah it's a head rib yeah sure buddy what'd you do to that thing you can use them until they're just totally dead yeah what I did was you know I caught a couple fish earlier and it ripped the rip the nose of the bait but don't have to throw it away just buy a little piece of the tail off and hook it backwards and they'll eat it just just like that no problem that way you get more out use out of your bait spend more on gas I think it's time to change locations y'all stay tuned we'll be right back from a different spot right here in the Louisiana Marsh so get off the top water follow it out of follower so if you want to talk another yeah that need anywhere he is I think that was driving him crazy what ain't nothing better than a top water hit y'all see what I've done I've changed over to a top water plug now because they've been eatin Travis's bobber it's not a bad one nope I just hate putting on treble hooks in the net but overall better than getting them in my fingers oh that's not a bad fish they're 25 and a half ounces Flyers blur I got there is another little redfish caught on me that's a she dog I'm using to noisy little topwater plug you can work it real fast but this guy yeah you can you can work it real fast cover a lot of water and you know if they're being aggressive like they are because they were hitting this court went ahead and doing the top water even though it is in the middle of the day you know top water is usually a better bait to throw early morning or late at night or late at dusk because they followed the silhouette of it but stop water plug still not the right size fish but it make it let us place anyway I on today's rig it right segment I'm going to show you what we were throwing out there in the marsh all day I like throwing a spinner bait when we're up in Louisiana it kind of gives a good vibration in that dirty water and it really attracts the redfish this one here happens to be made by triple play they use DOA products on it absolutely love it now Travis on the other hands throwing something totally different and I like to throw things different especially when you have two people on the boat and you're actually searching for the redfish out there he's throwing what do a makes it's called a deadly combination all it is is a poppin fork and if you can hear that it makes all sorts of rattling if you watch Travis how he's throwing it right up next to the bank popping it and just let it sit hopping it and just let it sit very very simple bait to work and this is the she dog and it's got that ball bearings in it so it really attracts the fish is you're bringing it through the marsh and if they're 10-15 feet away they're going to come to that sound and when they see the bait it's going to give you those top water hits that you absolutely love when you're throwing a good top water bait like this mere lure got it rigged with 30 pound seaguar fluorocarbon leader I got fence fishing line on here now and I'm throwing the new mogan combo that you can find at your local dick store and remember we have an addictive fishing zone at

with that that's a monster net it read there that's the common one the cow fat that sucker is bogey good genius where was he the last tournament around here somewhere that was by the last tournament we got so tired of catching redfish and when I said we caught a hundred in here at least that day I was way off on him 25 and a 25 and a half well we know where we can catch these twenty-five and a half at Antietam it's and a half longer through the belly on these things that's a fat red fish there they definitely eat good here in Venice yep definitely good there's some very very healthy fish
