Oeana at the Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo: Testing for Mercury

Jaqueline Savitz>> Oceana came to the Alabama Deep Sea Rodeo because it was a great opportunity for us to sample a lot of different kinds of fish all in one place And it's a real win-win opportunity for us because the anglers are actually out there getting the fish for us, bringing them in to us, and we test them and we can provide the information back to them

And we're hoping to fill some data gaps here We're looking at some fish that haven't been sampled as frequently, that we don't have that much information on, and also looking at some fish that we do know a lot about that we think might be high in mercury and try to reinforce that data And once we do that, we hope that we can inform recreational anglers and fish in the gulf of mexico so that they can make informed choices about what they eat, what they feed their families, and maybe even what they go out looking for

Fishing with Johnny Johnson – Early Spring at Rainbow Lake, AZ

Got'im! We got'im Got'im on that Ned-rig

[cackling] Look at that Little Rainbow Lake bass Come on baby It's that time of year, finally Got'im! [cackling] Little Rainbow Lake bass right there

Folks, it is that time of year Caught him on a little Ned-rig I threw that little tiny bait up in there because I knew that little guy would just go ape over it It's a great little bed-fish bait when you're trying to catch the little ones You know, we're at Rainbow Lake

A place where I learned my ABCs of bass fishing I live about– less than half a mile from here And uh, I'll tell you what, uh– this lake has always been a blast It's cleared up really nice You know, when the lakes down below are all done and– and the– the spawn is over, the spawn starts taking over here in the White Mountains

Uh, the fishing's a little tougher up here The quality of fish are great, uh, but we have a lot of lakes that offer some bass fishing up here that's a lot of fun Number one is Rainbow I'll get on Rainbow anywhere's from, you know, mid April, all the way up through June After that– pretty much done because it's weeded up so bad

It's tough to get on it And unless you like throwing frogs and pulling weeds out of your– out of your uh– trolling motor every two seconds uh– yeah, I normally don't get out here I'll go hit Fool's Hollow or something like that But uh, we have Fool Hollow Lake, Scott's Reservoir, Show Low Lake, uh, Willow Springs– you know, all those lakes up here have bass Today, of course, we're gonna be fishing Rainbow Lake

You're gonna see a lot of cool stuff here– like I said, growing up here– we have a lot of docks It's almost like fishing a Florida lake And what I mean by that is it's real shallow water This lake's 13 feet deep at its deepest It's clear water, and then of course, we have a lot of flooded brush and uh, we have a ton of docks

You have to learn how to skip docks, work docks– things like that And over the years of working docks– that's one of the reasons I like to go to lakes that have docks on them, like say, a Clear Lake in California, is because I grew up fishing docks So I understand them a little bit more But other than that, we're going to go around and see if we can catch us some quality fish That was a nice little bed-fish there to start the day with and, like I said, they're just moving up

So we'll have a lot of fun and see if we can't catch more right here at Rainbow Lake Got one! Right there I got the small one I got the small one on that Fat Ika Right here at the ramp, folks

[cackling] We haven't even moved yet Haven't even moved yet Got the small one There's a bigger one in there Let's get it– get it and let it loose

Look– the quality of these fish here, huh? That's a weightless Fat Ika's what I'm throwing Here, you learn to throw a lot of weightless stuff as well, with all the weeds But they look like little footballs man Look at that! Healthy fish Thanks buddy

I'm gonna hurry up and try to get in there and catch that bigger one She was going over for it and got spooked off from the male See if she'll get up in there Yeah, that's a 2 1/2 pounder here Tell you what, you never know the power of having Power-Poles until you need them

I try to tell– explain to people– you know when you're fishing this shallow water like this, it's always good to have Power-Poles Man, look at that fish It's so beautiful right here I'm gonna try to get'im Now usually when I don't get a fish– he's interested in this bait, but it's hard for me to see it, so I have to throw something I can see

It's very important to throw something you can see Now I'm gonna try my little craw If this doesn't intimidate her enough to bite, then I'll throw my big craw See, now I can see the bait Got her! Oh! I had her on! [sighs] [grunts] There's a jig-fish right there

[laughs] Yep We hit our first dock, folks And caught us a jig-fish And this fish has been caught before and culled I can feel the little hole right there

Somebody had culled that fish, believe it or not I'm throwing that Persuader E-chip jig And it's a flipping jig– which is awesome– but it's got that little E-chip in there It's a little crystal deal in there that actually– when it hits the bottom and it's hitting rocks– puts off an electrical pulsation there that's equal to– like running crawdads or running bait fish or something and– and it just really gets'em going And on top of that, I just threw a little Beaver on the back of it and uh, I got it dangling off the back there

We just caught that fish out from underneath that dock But this is an awesome jig and it– it sends out that little– that little indication man, for fish to just to go nuts on it Anything that's got a little bit of noise, whether it's a rattle, you know, you can throw– man, you know– you can put rattles in your baits or you can get rattle-back type jigs or something But the Persuader jig, already having that on there, is pretty awesome And I like it because it already comes with the skirt pretty well shortened up for you, ready to go

You know– it doesn't come with an extra long skirt And uh, you know– it's an awesome little jig I was here throwing this jig at a bass club tournament two weeks ago I got second place I broke off a– a nice fish that I think would've gave me first but– I got second place

I had four fish Real nice fish And I think my big one was almost 5 pounds so– you know– off this jig so– you know, they're here They're doing something a little bit different from two weeks ago You were looking at a real good pre-spawn there

Now, I think they're moving up a little bit and there a lot more active A lot more active today I think the water temperature was 52 or 54°, now it's up to 61 Because this is such a shallow lake, it warms up quick [laid back rock music] This fish has taken off one pincer already

Trying to get it fired up and take one more [grunts and laughs] My reflexes ain't what they used to be Tell you one thing, this fish has been a nightmare I'm ready to catch it Got'im that time! [cackling] That's what I'm talking about son! That's a nice Rainbow Lake bass

Alright, come on buddy! Got all my lures out on the– on the deck Come on Come on, I'm gonna let you go I'm gonna let you go That's the good news

Look at the 'football' look on these fish man! These fish are so healthy Look at that Just a football [laughs] That fish, we had to catch sight-fishing It took me a little while to catch that fish man

You gotta get'em in that mood, you know? But uh, we ended up catching it There's a big female up in there but I don't think she'll move up in there Maybe I'm wrong See if she did Yeah, there is a big female moved up in there

They're swimming around They're just now getting to where they're swimming around You know, I had to catch that fish on a– on a little craw– little white craw– so I could see it And I kinda had to aggravate it a little bit, but I finally got it going And uh, sometimes that's what it takes

But make no mistake, this time of year it's so much fun, because you can take your Senko's– you know, I've got all kinds of lures out here on the deck I'm having fun with but– And of course, I've got my big dog in case I see the big female, which is my big craw that I like to throw But we've caught a lot of fish on this You don't want to throw this without 17 pound test line Now, that lure I was just throwing, was just a Texas-rigged– I'll show it to you– just a Texas-rigged little craw Now, you don't have to use white, you can use– I use white so I can see it– you can use natural colors and still Texas-rig and things like that

But I'm throwing it on lighter line and I– the reason why I have it on the spinning out– outfit, is so I can get precise casts really easy with my light tackle So I can just flicker it out there without the fish really seeing me So I can just take it and flicker it out there and, you know, just throw it out there and just see what happens But I can make precise casts this way It's funny, because that big female moved in, but boy, she's spooky as all get out

[country music] Got'im! I got'im! [cackling] That's a nice one, folks! That's a nice fish! That's a brute! [cackling] Little Rainbow Lake bass Oh yeah! Come on buddy [chuckles] Oh my goodness, I love this time of year Alright, you're done Oh, you look so good

They are so healthy and they look good, and they got big ol' jaws Look at that These fish are all beef, let me tell you –Or all fish

Look at that Beautiful bass right here– Rainbow Lake And you notice they all look beautiful green They got– they're– they're nice and wide They eat good

Now, you gotta remember something about Rainbow– See you buddy Watch him Bye! — You know, we don't have shad in these lakes We got frogs, bluegills, trout, you know uh, catfish, things like that but– sunfish– but

Oh, and they've added grass carp here to The reason for the grass carp is because this lake gets really weedy Remember I was telling you– after June, this lake's pretty much done

Well, I'm noticing a lot less grass They put a bunch of those grass carp in All they do is eat the grass and– and– and weeds and things like that, so– It's helping the lake out to an extent But I don't think you'll ever be able to get all of the grass out of this lake It's just– it's a shallow lake

It– it'll grow quicker than they can eat it But, in saying that, it keeps it clean for a while The only thing good about the weeds, is it clears the lake up quick Uh, the lake is not clearing up nearly as fast as it usually does because we usually have a little bit more weed but hey, you know, it's still a lot of fun But uh, those grass carp definitely are making a difference and uh– as far as being able to get out here and go fishing and not get a bunch of weeds in your trolling motor

At least this time of year [up-tempo country music] Hey folks, for my Tip of the Week, one thing I want to show you You know, anytime you get into an area where you have bed-fish like we have and you have a tough time catching them, and you've tried downsizing to these little guys like this, you know– and I catch a lot of my fish off that Especially when they're pressured or something like that, a lot of times they'll be more willing to hit the little baits– but I have found something out

Throw away the little baits, go to the real big ones Do something to intimidate them, and a lot of times you get those big females going after something like that And I'll tell you what, going after a big bait like this, when you wouldn't think even a little fish would hit it, would surprise you

Anything that intimidates them on the bed, they're going to go after So try upsizing a little bit instead of downsizing, and you might catch bigger fish You know, just a couple of baits that if you come to the White Mountains, you want to fish Rainbow Lake or Fool's Hollow Some– some standard baits that we use up here in the White Mountains

Well, number one's the Senko You can throw that weightless and uh, do the 4 inch The 3 inch, the 4 inch and a 5 inch all work very well up here

And of course, your jigs Your standard jigs Any kind of flipping-jig Go with a craw pattern or or a dark– you know– black and blue Something like that works really good

You also have spinner baits Now even though the water's clear up here a lot of times, you can get away with a lot of chartreuses, because we have frogs and things like that– trout in the water– so you know, a little chartreuse on a white spinner bait goes a long ways up here in the White Mountains That's a– that's a good– usually a pretty good uh, key lure to throw And then uh, you know, obviously the drop-shot will work up here very well And some baits you can skip

Tubes– uh you know– things like that But try to stay within the pattern of what's– what's going on as far as– you know– like I said Shad stuff? You can throw it You'll catch fish on it but it's– you know– it's not the standard stuff that I'd want to throw

If I'm going to throw, for example a stick-bait or something like that– or jerk-bait– I want it to look like a rainbow trout or a bluegill or something so– versus a shad So there's a few– few little tips there that will help you when you come up here to the White Mountains Like I said, I've been fishing this lake my whole life Lizards work really good And uh, I– I've had a lot of success on these lakes just with the four or five baits I just told you

And it's pretty much standard every year you come fishing here You know? So You know, there's a pretty good chance you're gonna catch some fish And don't forget

Throw a Texas-rig in there once in a while Or when the– when the lake's not so weedy, you can drag that Texas-rig, a little lizard or a 4 inch worm or a 7 inch Power Worm works pretty good up here so With those few baits, I'm sure that'll help you right here at Rainbow Lake

[laid-back guitar music] [whispering] Oh, there's a bigger one right there Bigger one Oh, he's going down for my bait Got'im! I got'im! Nice fish! [grunting] Oh I gotta keep them out of the dock! Oh! [cackling] I knew it! Little drop-shot bass [laughing] Ooh! Oh my goodness! [chuckles] I saw that fish heading for my bait I'm like– "He's going for my bait"! Oh my goodness! Come on baby That is a nice fish Nice fish! Ah– He's got it hooked in the corner of his mouth

Come on baby Come on Come on I got him right in the corner

Come on Oh I don't want to get the hook in me

And we got'im [grunts] Look at that Look at that beautiful fish And look Barely– in the corner of the mouth– look at that That's why you use your drag Just in case you didn't know That's a female getting ready to spawn Look at that

Isn't she beautiful? I'll tell you what Had a great day on the water today here at Rainbow Lake These are the kind of fish you catch Big ol' football fish A fish that would normally look 2 pounds to you is gonna go 3 1/2 on this lake, I'm telling you These fish are just monsters I've had a great time on the show Thanks for joining us

Pick up some drop-shots and you'll have a lot of fun Till next week, I'll see you on the water, I'm Johnny Johnson

Beach Fishing: The Best Baits to Catch Fish at ANY Beach!

What's going on, guys!? Today we're going to be talking about what is the best bait to use for the beach? Woah! So, today, we're going to catch some dinner fish, using the Salt Clams and the fleas and the Fish Bites, we're going to catch some dinner fish, cook it right up on the beach, and, uh I'll show you guys how I do that! These baits are really good for beginners if you're trying to target specific fish, and you're really intensive into, like, game fishing, this might not be the best kind of sugegstion for you This is for the laid-back fisherman who wants to go to the beach, sit back, cast some lines out, and get on to a lot of fish! This is for the dinner fishermen, people who want to catch fish for fun, and for food So there's always the classic sand flea Sand fleas live on the beach, under the sand, near where the surf breaks you can find them by digging them, or you can have–you can buy one of these sand flea rakes

Which, basically, I'll show you in a second how I catch sand fleas Actually, I'll show you right now So, you've gotta look at the waves, at the sand near the waves, you'll see them scattering under the sand Look! Look at that! It's full of fleas! [Brendon's Dad:] Wash it off, the sand, in the water there! Look at all those fleas! Now, this is one of the best baits for the beach Because they live right next to all the fish, the fish love feeding on these

So, it's really simple to use sand fleas There's no–nothing really important you need to know, you just hook on a sand flea You can do one, you can do two A lot of times, I do two and a lot of different kinds of fish will bite a sand flea! Now, I'm using this sand flea on a Pomp Boss Rig I got them from nativesaltclamcom, the rig works really well for the beach, I mean it's got these little beads, and it's got a floatie on it, (but you can take it off of you don't like it) The idea behind these beads, and the color, the chartreuse and the orange, is, it's supposed to mimic the underbellies of the sand fleas, a lot of times they're orange under here with eggs, and this flashy color will attract the fish

Woah! Anything on? On? Big hit? On?? Seaweed! Ooooh! Look what I got! What do you have? Oh yeah What is that? What the–? Sand perch? No Look at that–look at that nose! What the–?! Wait, what is that? Look at that, look at the nose

That is a really strange looking fish Do we have any guesses as to what kind of fish this is? I've never seen a fish like this before, comment below, let us know Now, every one of these baits have their own pros and cons list

The sand flea works really well, however, um, one: they're not always at the beach, two: they seem to be picked off pretty easily, and three: they die pretty easily The second bait that I want to recommend is Fish Bites! They come in a variety of different scents and flavors, um, and the thing with Fish Bites is they're very tough, and they stay on the hook real well Let me show you

It looks like a stick of gum! But inside is like, is some kind of mesh You can see, there's mesh in it You see? And you put a strip on and, believe it or not, it works pretty well It's actually– There are reports of Fish Bites catching fish all over the world, and um, I really think that if you want convienience and you don't want to have to buy um, blood worms or like, stuff that'll perish, stuff that you have to refrigerate, this is a good bet, which leads me to one of my favorite baits at the beach, now, this product, Native Salt Clam Bait, I use it all the time, and for those of you who've seen it, you guys know that it catches a lot of fish The greatest thing about this bait is that it smells great, it's–it's tough, not as tough as the Fish Bites, but it's tough, um, so it'll stay on the hook well, and it catches a lot of fish! –And the combination of these two on the same hook works really well

These two work really well if you're trying to catch dinner fish, if you're trying to catch some fish to eat um, these two work really well in combination or individually So, let's see how these baits work, I'll show you guys how I hook it up Come on So today we're with the maker of Salt Clams, and he's giving us a lot of good tips, and uh, he's a pretty fun guy to fish with Right now, I think he's using his own Pomp Boss Rigs and um, Salt Clams, um, he's got three rods out, take a look

Look at those rods They're so long! They're huge! Wait, look Look how tall it is! Look at this bird! It's only got one foot! I've got a pretty long rod myself, I mean, it's not that long, nine foot, um, but if you notice, we all have long rods out here, we-you need a long rod to be able to cast it out! If you have a short, little inshore rod, it's not going to work really well– you can catch fish still, but look at this, come here Look at how long this is right here An inshore rod gets cut off here

You need this extra bit for more leverage, and if you have a fish on, you stick this between your legs and you start crankin' See? Woah, Killian's got one! Nice! That's a good eatin' fish Nice whiting We can definitely eat this one Yeah, let's eat that

You were casting right beyond the break? Just beyond the- uh, the drop off Okay 'Cause they cruise around here and eat those coquina clams that live in here, sand fleas and stuff, even during the day, 'cause the big one's'll– I'll catch them in my cast net sometimes up in the wash Wow There's a lot of sand fleas

You're just putting big chunks of clam on, huh? Yeah, not too big, too much is really a waste, I kind of waste it 'cause I make it, you know, if I was buying it I'd be using half these size chunks and catching more fish, I'd imagine, 'cause they can't really get this in their mouth so good, a half of this sized piece on here they just put it all in their mouth and get hooked right away, but this a lot of times they'll pull it off, so by doing this, I'm actually lowering my chances of catching fish Well you just caught one, so something's working, ha ha Yeah! That's true Can catch fish Um, did you say you didn't even cast it very far? No, not at all, she saw where I put it, but I put it–there's a drop off here, where it finally drops off, where the last break is, it goes like 4 or 5 feet, Uh huh

Right behind that drop off, so You can see–right– right there! And back Okay It's a real good drop off, and you want to be on the other side of it So it's like a trough It's a trough, exactly

It's a drop off It's a trough, and fish– with a trough and it starts right where the break is –and bigger fish will swim and hunt for food in that trough Correct, definitely, and they also eat the coquina clams and other types of clams which live here naturally, you'll find them in whiting stomachs all the time, Ahh Uh, they eat the sand fleas, they eat shrimp– So whitings love clam? They love clam, it's their natural forage That's what they eat every day is clams

Alright You open them up, they're full of clams sometimes Alright, I'mma– The little ones that live on the beach I'm going to put a triple threat on Clam, sand fleas, and shrimp, all on one hook, let's see what happens

Alright You'll probably get a catfish A catfish? Well, we'll see, ha ha ha, What do I know? So I've got Salt Clams on, I'm going to put a sand flea on at the same time, oh yeah Salt Clam // Sand Flea combination! Let's see what happens Dad, he said that dont cast it very far

this first trough right here Whoo!! The first trough! It was right on the first trough, you were right, Killian! Catfish! You were right about that, too! Oh my gosh! Ha ha! Oh my gosh No

Spanish Pompano Maybe the Senko viewers can do a, uh, ID

on this one Ok So, if you know what kind of fish this is, please comment below, it looks kind of like a pompano Yeah, yeah, I believe it's a Spanish Pompano or a Palmetto, something like that, Alright, please comment below if you can identify this fish No size limit Awesome So what are we going to do? I usually throw them back, 'cause they're so small Yeah, yeah

And this was on the Clam again! Still got my bait Still have the bait on Got a white floatie on the top and an orange one on the bottom, –White It ate it on white They're hitting white, they're hitting orange, It's not seeming to matter

Putting more bait on Freshen it up Alright, here's lunch! Killian caught this earlier on the Salt Clam, what we're going to do is, um, we're going to cook up the whole fish! What's the secret recipe today? This is just flour Alright Dry it out
