How To Tie A Dropper Loop Knot For Catfishing Or Live Bait Fishing Great Fishing knot!!

hey guys Ivan here on the Missouri agitator Channel I'm gonna start changing all my videos to this channel moving all my I've got four different channels so I'm moving them all here because of YouTube's new new policies and and the way they're taking monetization and stuff away from videos so I've had a lot of people ask me how I tie my dropper loops so I'm gonna go ahead and show you I'll make a loop in my line pretty big loop pretty decent size and then what I'll do is wrap this six or seven eight times until I'm comfortable with it okay now what I'll do is I'll take the back side of this loop and push it back through here like so and trying to hold everything together grab that piece with my mouth and then start pulling it taunt hopefully I got that on camera and hopefully in this camera this is a different camera than what I normally use so hopefully the camera picks that it up let's see that's it that's your dropper loop and a lot of guys of course you know your your weight would be on the end down here on this end and then your hook up here a lot of guys will take their hooks feed them through the eye and then they'll just come back around cinch it up and then they can you know take their hook off if they want I did it different eyes I bring mine through like so and then I'll what I'll tie is a Palomar knot pop that there bring my hook through that loop wit it with my mouth and then pull it taut and that's the way I like to fish my my dropper loops and then what I'll usually do is you know tie my weight on the end and then come up a few feet put in a dropper loop and then I'll come up a few more feet and put in another dropper loop because I like to fish when I'm fishing that way I like to fish to baits on one line and of course that that all goes with your state regulations it's up you know you make sure you look into your laws before you start trying two hooks on and all that stuff but that's the dropper loop good and good and stout it hasn't failed me so alright guys hope you got some use out of that you know take care make sure you hit that subscribe button and hit the like button if you liked the video and if you want to see more make sure you subscribe like I say YouTube's trying to push all of us little guys out of the out of the picture so y'all take care till the next video you

Choosing The Right Bait for Bass Fishing –

(dramatic music) – [Narrator] Welcome to this episode of The Cabela's Fisherman's Handbook On today's show, we offer fishing tips on various techniques, including flipping, pitching, and crankbaits

All of the content in this show is designed to help you catch more fish Let's get out on the water with Wade and talk about one of his favorite ways to fish – Flipping and pitching, they're basically short line applications that anglers use in and around a variety of cover It's been related to hand-to-hand combat, full on fight, two heavyweights going at it However you wanna look at it, it is a battle between you and the fish, and the battle can be as simple as trying to figure out how to get a bite, and then what to do with it afterwards, and then how to recreate that all over

And for me, flipping and pitching, it's an addiction It's been an obsession my entire life when it comes to bass fishing It's, without question, one of my top three favorite ways to go fishing for largemouth bass Oh, he got strong at the boat He came in pretty easy until he got to the boat

When you start looking at the techniques of flipping and pitching, and there are differences in them, but for the sake of this little piece we're doing right here, we're just gonna kinda lump them together We're gonna talk about those presentations where you're making an underhand cast, letting the bait pendulum out in your hand into a variety of cover, and the gear needed to be successful in those types of situations And there are a lot of different factors that relate to that type of fishing to help you determine the bait, the color of bait, the size of the weight, little additions you may add to it such as punching skirts or no punching skirts, baits that are big, baits that are small, the appendages, the actions of each bait Then, you can take it down into the size of line, the type of line, fluorocarbon, monofilament, braided line, the actual pound test of each one of them, as well as the rod and reel combos themselves All of those will have a direct result in your success or failures

Now granted, you could use anything we're gonna talk about in any fishing situation, and you're gonna be successful to a certain extent But when when you match the right pieces of gear altogether and that bite's going on, you can have some of the best bass fishing you're ever gonna experience There he is That's a good one (splashing) (Wade mumbles) (fish splashing) Come here, buddy

Boy, these fish are fat, healthy, look good I've only got two different samples of soft plastics right here They would work for a flipping and pitching type of scenario (laughs) There's probably a thousand different ones out there that somebody could hook onto their hook and find success with, and what I've tried to do is really, a lot of times in today's world, is simplify some of my bait presentations You know, you look at this bait right here from Big Bite Baits, it's a bait that's gonna be designed

It's very compact in nature, yet it still has some great appendages on there, as I call them, to give it action once it goes down into the strike zone But it's still compact enough when you're trying to pick apart heavy cover that it's gonna flip in there So many times, you'll see certain baits with too many loose pieces on them As you're flipping into that cover, with a light weight especially, it will hang on the cover, and deflect it, and knock it off line where it's not gonna be able to go right into the intended location where you feel the fish is That's why a lot of these style baits are so very successful in that type of a flipping and pitching situation because you can punch it right in there, everything's nice and compact, but you've still got some great action, swimming action, especially when the bait is coming into the water and out of the water, and it's got a very good profile, much like a lot of your bluegill or crawfish that are gonna be up in those areas

So, when it comes to picking your profiles, comes to picking your colors and styles of bait, don't overthink it Keep it very simple Pick some of the most basic colors like your neon black red when you're in those muddy water situations, green pumpkins, watermelon reds, your Okeechobee craw, some of that when you're in more clear water or lightly stained water, and you're gonna find success Good one Get out of the tree

(fish splashing) (grunts) Finky little guy He hit it swimming it out of that bush Come here (mumbles) got you coming that way Little fat fish there When it comes to choosing line for this type of a flipping and pitching application, there are a lot of different choices that are gonna be available out there to you

A couple things that I like to keep in mind in that "keep it simple" motto when I go fishing is, let's just say I've got semi-clear water with a little bit of a stain to it, 20-pound fluorocarbon That's probably gonna be my go-to Next scenario up, maybe it's got a little more stain to it, it's a little dirtier, or the cover is a little bit heavier, I may go to 25 or 30-pound fluorocarbon or maybe even go to a 25, 30-pound class type braid in that type of situation The next scenario up, I'm going all out with the biggest gear and guns that I can get out of my Sunline I'm gonna get up in the 60-pound plus braided line, and I'm gonna go with a big heavy weight, trying to get that reaction strike, and that's gonna be in those situations where I'm dropping it into hydrilla, coontail, deep timber, or I'm dealing with really off-color water where I think I can get away with it

No matter which way you go, no matter what your choices are, spend some time experimenting If the bite turns off one way or the other, maybe they're a little line sensitive or a little line shy, and you're not getting the action you're looking at, so downsize If you're losing some fish, you can't winch them out of that big cover, gun it up a little bit Go big and don't give up Keep flipping and pitching in there, set the hook hard, and winch those big guys out

– Now, that fish was definitely in that thicker patch Look how dark he is on his back Pretty fish, though (upbeat music) (fish splashing) – [Narrator] When we come back, we've got more tips on catching fish when flipping and pitching And later in the show, the action continues as Wade shares insight on crankbait fishing and how you can use these baits to catch more fish

The Fisherman's Handbook is brought to you in part by Bass Pro shops, your adventure starts here Garmin, fight your fish, not your fish finder And by Yamaha Marine, reliability starts here – I wish I could say there was just one thing that you needed to go grab or buy that would make you a better flipper or pitcher Number one, spent time on the water

Number two, try to get equipment that is designed for that That could be your rod type scenario I've got the Cabela's XML rod series here that is designed for flipping It's a great all-around flipping rod You know, it's gonna allow you good sensitivity, feel, all the way down to the quality of the blanks where you're gonna find success and be able to catch fish in a lot of different situations

But I'll be the first to tell you, there are times where I need a heavier action rod even than what this one is For instance, if I'm dropping one ounce and a half, two-ounce jigs in heavy hydrilla, basically I want something with more backbone than this rod's even gonna give me because that bite is such a reaction bite and I've gotta winch them out of that grass Not to say I can't do it with this rod because I can, but a lot of times in that type of situation there, I need a very specialized rod Same situation applies to choosing the bait, and the hooks, and the style while you're trying to figure that out What might work in flipping in that one to three foot of water like what Clark Wendlandt and I did on Lake Somerville a couple years back, the fish were up in the shallow cover, lots of little beanie bushes, little lightweight bushes that had just recently got flooded, we didn't need the heaviest gear in that type of situation

Fluorocarbon line like a 20-pound Sunline, a quarter ounce or maybe a little heavier weight with just a nice soft plastic packaged up together flipping in that cover produced all the bites that we needed (mumbles) better bass there (fish splashing) Golly (fish splashing) Get up here – (mumbles) look at the belly on that guy

(Wade laughs) – When you get on a good flipping bite, that's just so hard to not enjoy, isn't it? – I love it because it's like, it's hands-on combat is kinda the way I see it is You know, you've gotta make good pitches and a lot of them It's not one cast every once in a while It's actively making a good presentation to get a bite – Another situation to look at is a very similar scenario, except in totally different conditions, high, high winds, winds blowing 25 miles an hour

I found myself up on Lake Fairfield struggling to get a lot of bites Knew the fish would be shallow, knew they were up there getting ready to spawn or already spawning, and what I finally had to do was take a compact scenario but use a big, big weight, number one, so that I could make a presentation With the high winds, a light weight, I couldn't feel it falling, my bait was getting hung up in the top of the vegetation before it even get into the strike zone, so I upsized I went to that one ounce weight or three-quarter ounce weight, took a bait like a YoMama from Big Bite Baits, it has a great kicking action, and put a skirt on there, punching skirt, flipped it in there all as one compact unit If I didn't get a bite right away on the first drop, I'd kinda hop it and swim it back out of there, and begin to tear the fish up by using that technique

So, that's going totally the opposite way, but using very similar equipment Got one swimming that one up there That's two bites now I've had swimming I need to put a swim jig on Work it out of this cover

You know, I've got my trailer on this is that swimming craw, and it's got great action like what we're doing right here When it's coming through, they're putting off a lot of vibration, and we were at the back end of a pocket now when that one there bit, so I caught him I mean, I flipped in, hopped it twice, and then swam it out, and about the second rod pump while I was swimming it, I saw the line jump, watched the swirl, and set the hook Now, you can see the bulk or the width, I should say Even better are those claws right there, and when they're come through the water, they're turning, and twisting, and constantly putting off a lot of vibration, and it looks like a bait fish or a crawfish trying to get away, and that's what we're trying to mimic while we're up in here

– [Narrator] Coming up next on The Fisherman's Handbook, crankbaits can be one of the most effective ways to catch a large number of fish Stay tuned as Wade shares his thoughts on crankbait fishing The Fisherman's Handbook is brought to you in part by Cabela's, it's in your nature Ranger Boats, still building legends one at a time Engel coolers, a legend in reliability

And by Big Bite Baits, designed to bring the big bite to your line (upbeat music) – Yeah, I'd love to know how many different crankbaits there are in the world I mean, it would be an astronomical number, and the reason there are so many of them is crankbaits catch fish 12 months out of the year every day in a certain situation, and as a fisherman, you've gotta obviously determine what that situation is, and how to catch them, and the color, the action, the depth as well as the gear used to fish the crankbait You know, it's not just something that you tie on, and go out, and catch fish after fish Yes, you could probably tie any crankbait on that exists, and you're eventually gonna get a bite on any given day, but there's times when you can pick the right crankbait, the right color, the right retrieve, and mix it all up with the right gear and find great success

– Oh yeah (laughs) Look at that one right there, boys and girls – When you start really dissecting crankbait fishing as far as what a guy likes in choosing a fishing rod, that, a lot of times, becomes a personal preference a lot of times I look back to those fiberglass crankbait rods They had a lot of give to them

I mean, when you hooked up a fish, they'd be about that big around at the base, and I mean, (laughs) it would bend from about a foot and a half up the rod all the way down But that was very forgiving, and that allowed a lot of guys to be able to fight those fish What it didn't allow you to do a lot of times was have control over that fish The fish, more often than not, was in control of the fight And when you look at a lot of people's choices now, they want a rod that probably has, and you can start to see it in this rod here where it flexes and where it gives, and it's more in the middle of the rod right in here

And this is designed as a crankbait rod on the Cabela's XML series Where I look back at some of those flexible old-school fiberglass rods, they would flex all the way down to right in here, and you would kinda lose control a lot of times Now, good and bad in that situation Hang a big fish going on runs at the boat or maybe didn't necessarily get the bait as good as you hoped it would, so some of that forgiveness was great, but you lose control a lot of times when that fish is making tremendous runs and you wanna steer him away from cover, so there's a trade-off there But at the end of the day, my best piece of advice when choosing a crankbait rod is find one that's designed specifically for crankbait fishing

It's got some of the attributes there that you're looking for And find one with a good moderate taper in it, not too forgiving, but not so forgiving you're out of control a lot of times And that'll be a great rod for the average guy's crankbait needs, that four to 10, 12 foot depth where he'll be able to fish effectively, have control of his baits, be able to feel the baits, be able to feel what they're doing, as well as manage the fish Got him that time He crushed it, too

He's hooked outside the mouth You can see the fight You can watch that rod as it goes down, and it's just so important when it comes to, he's only got, now he's got two hooks in him He only had one Now, he's back to one

You know, that helps provide, it's a shock absorber, basically, when you're fighting fish Oh, you've got one hook, buddy Gotcha Gotcha, gotcha, gotcha Alright, I'll let him go back

We talk about rods and the selection there, you can see it in evidence in that fight right there Every time that fish would kinda go, he'd dig, he'd dig, and he'd pull, and you could see that taper, see that bend in there, and that's what you want in a crankbait rod (suspenseful music) – [Narrator] It's time for a break, but when we return, we break down the different actions in crankbaits and how these actions can trigger a fish to bite, right here on The Fisherman's Handbook The Fisherman's Handbook is brought to you in part by Sawyer Products, we keep you outdoors Engel Coolers, a legend in reliability

And by Spro, sports professionals (upbeat music) – There's one right there Yeah, you can see him on the grass down there, coming up He's getting ready to jump He's gonna jump

(laughs) You can watch him actually go up and jump Now, he's going back down under the boat He choked on that rock crawler Look at that Look where he's got that bait in his mouth

(mumbles) that's a good one right there That's a good one Wow You know, crankbait fishing in its most common form is a reaction bite You know, a lot of times, I look back when I was younger and had a three little tier tackle box and everything

I'd just throw it out there, and I'd just reel, and I wasn't even throwing at anything And then, as I got older, I began to realize that yes, it's a reaction bite, but boy, there's a way to really pick apart specific cover, especially when you understand all the different variances in baits that are out there and what each one of them's designed for There he is He's right there at the boat There is a drop off

I can see it on my sonar right there Had my Panoptix out there It was kinda doubled up You're still seeing drops – [Narrator] As is evident from the fish catches so far in this show, crankbaits can be used to catch fish all across the nation

One more key to cracking the code of crankbait fishing is understanding what style of crankbait to use for each situation – [Wade] You look at the rocks that we're fishing right now, I mean, I'm sitting in five and half, six foot of water They roll out and eventually drop off in 10 feet, and I want a bait that I can throw up on these rocks and parallel it, and it's gonna hit like six, seven feet and bounce into these rocks Well, when I was younger, I might've come up here with a bait that would go 20 feet It would be hung all the time

Or I'd come up with a square bill type bait and just, zoom, right across the top of these fish and never get where they were setting up as an ambush point So keep it in mind, that yes, this is a great reaction bite, and yeah, you can tie it on as a kid or an adult and just go wind it You'll eventually catch one, but picking the right crankbait for the right situation is so key in getting these reaction strikes, whether it's this type of cover or any other cover Oh, there's one right there, buddy Oh, feels like a good one, too, but boy, they all feel good when they're first (mumbles)

He hasn't jumped Boy, he just (groans) Get out of those rocks

Man, not bad, not bad Let's go this side with you, fish Get away from those rocks He's got it all the way down in there (fish splashing) (Wade humming) Boy, he ate it

It's there, right there, fish Yeah (laughs) He has a mouth full of treble hooks right there When you start talking about the actions of crankbaits, boy, there's a lot of them out there, and you've really gotta kinda dial it in based on the time of the year A couple of things I like to keep in mind

When the water's very cold, I've always felt like a very tight wiggle is a key, key action that a guy wants And conversely, when the water temperature warms up, especially past the spawn, something with a big wide wobble I always use the analogy when it comes to looking at crankbaits, think about how cold it is outside when you walk out and how you're kinda bundled up Everything's kinda tight You're not as excited to be out there, and you kinda, you're very tight in your walk

Now, think about the summertime You're down on the beach, and you're strutting, and wiggling, and walking around Bait action's the same thing Warm weather, big wobbling action baits are some of my favorites When it gets cold, I like those narrower, tighter actions a lot of times

(fish splashing) Ooh, he choked it That's what you're looking for – [Narrator] That wraps up this episode of the Cabela's Fisherman's Handbook This show featured a wide range of fishing tips intended to make you a better fisherman as well as help you catch more fish on your next trip To learn more tips like those featured in today's episode and to stay up-to-date with everything we're doing, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, or watch our videos on YouTube

Pier fishing: What is stealing your bait?

Picture this: You're at a great fishing spot, you've got bait on your line, you and your buddies are having a great time– But you cant catch $#*%!!! Something keeps stealing your bait! *crunching, munching* Something is pickin' these apart and we can't catch 'em! So what do we do? What we do is we try harder! Ha, and longer! Solomon's Island is a great place to fish and crab because it sits right on the Chesapeake Bay

We went there for the famous Maryland Blue Crab, but we couldn't catch anything (You see that crab?) Now get the net, get the net! Ahh! Oh! Nooo! When we watched the footage at home, we realized that our bait attracted all sorts of weird underwater creatures We also noticed that there were a bunch of little, small, Northern Pufferfish enjoying a free meal of free chicken necks These chicken necks actually attracted a whole bunch different kind of little strange fish Like magnets, the schools of spot and other fish were attracted to the bait

This guy caught a spade fish in his crab trap! So, one of the weirdest fish that we saw that day was called the Sea Robin, and the Sea Robin is a very strange looking fish with tentacle-like legs, really big spikes, and fins like wings, where it can actually fly out over the water, but the Sea Robin is actually a bottom-feeder! We also saw a herd of beautiful cownose rays, which weren't really interested in our chicken necks but the weirdest fish that we saw was a fish called the Toadfish, and this is a really slimy, gross-looking, um, squishy fish that was, actually, not eating the chicken necks, but instead it was standing on top, it was floating on top of the chicken necks, waiting for little fish to come by so it would eat the little fish So, it wasn't interested in eating the chicken neck, it was interested in guarding the chicken neck and surprising fish, and eating them

The Toadfish could have been what was keeping the crabs away, honestly, We wound up losing all of our chicken necks that day and had to stop fishing because we were out of bait The pufferfish, I guess, just outsmarted us that day, and I wanna know from you guys, have any of you ever been outsmarted by fish? Well, I know for a fact that fish have outsmarted me actually, they outsmart me almost every time I go fishing One time I hooked on to a snakehead, it was a big snakehead, shook it off right at the boat, and looks at me for a good five seconds before it just swims off Just saying, like, "haha, f*#% you" We're going to bleep that out

Thank you guys for watching! Please give us a thumbs up and subscribe below because we post the every single week for you guys to watch! The Senko Skipper channel connects all sorts of fishing, fishing from around the world for you lovely people to share and watch Thank you! We'll see you next week in Florida!

Pumping yabbies, pink nippers, awesome bait, whiting and bream

One bucket fits inside the other It contains lots of holes and makes changing the water very easy

Pumping yabbies, look for the yabbie holes Best on the bottom half of the tide I got 3 or 4 yabbies on nearly every pump Angle your pump on about 45 degrees, suck back 3 to 5 times The yabbies just float on the surface

They go into the bucket One yabbie and hook goes through the tail just once Three times through the tail, make sure you don't go into the head area Slide the hook through the tail and turn it up through the tail just behind the head Two or three yabbies on your hook Works for better quality fish

Changing the old water out of the bucket and replacing it with new fresh water Prolongs the life of your yabbies Using 4 lb fluorocarbon, 2500 Shamano stradic Number 1 bait keeper hook (mustad) small triple O sinker (almost no wind)

Saltwater Fishing: Mystery bait catches all sorts fish

I mean, you first see this bait and you're like, you're like, "what the heck?" But then you try it and it catches so many different kinds of fish! *Erin gasps* *senko skipper intro glitch* We're in a traveling fishing-mobile, basically What do you mean? We've got all of our gear, surf and freshwater, and inshore, and the little dock demon, and telescopic, and 28-foot pole, and two kayaks, and all my freshwater gear, and all my salt water gear, and chairs, and kayak lights so that we can fish at night

That's a lot of gear You never know–I–there's so many different kinds of fish around here Today we are here in Hoopersville, Maryland! And we're here because Native Salt Clam La- Da! Has sent us on a journey

We're actually really trying to find some bait fish and with those bait fish we're going to catch some bigger fish Now, I know that the big rockfish are here, there's big stripers here, so we're going to be using these clams today, we're going to be jumping around spots and finding all the fish! So you guys may not remember, but I actually, um, I dipped these Salt Clams in some, um, garlic dye! Let's see how it works! Looks great It looks pretty cool, huh? Yeah On! The second we got here! Yeah-ohh Is it a stupid puffer? It's a puff

It's a puffer Oh, and it bit my line off It bit your line off? It bit my line off Strange looking fish, isn't it? Yeah Let's throw it back

How would you describe Hoopers, Maryland? I would describe it as: there's nothing here but fishing Yup it's a– Like, there's so much water everywhere, it's gorgeous, there are so many different types of water and so many different types of fish that you can go for, and it's a beautiful, beautiful island that we've never been to before [Brendon] It's a fishing village Yup That's really what it is, There's nothing to do nere but fishing

-A lot of crabbing Now we've been here for 3 days already We couldn't film anything because we were just really exploring the area, seeing what there is, –Looking for the fish Right Ooh! –Ohh! Woah, a trout! Woah, nice! Wow What a pretty fish, huh? Do they have any teeth? Yeah, look at these two lil'– vampire teeth in the front Ah! I've heard that if they have one tooth, they're juvenile, but that's obviously not true, look: this guy's got two teeth I think it's two teeth, juvenile, one tooth, like, a year old or something

I don't know, I don't know if I even believe it What do you guys think? Comment that below! I think the trout really like the Salt Clam, we've caught a lot of trout on the Salt Clam before, what do you think? Yeah, the trout really like the Salt Clam, um, so does the puffer, so does the spot, so does the croaker, all the fish here like the Salt Clam Alright, let me throw it back That's too small So the best part about bait fishing for me is that it's so mysterious

You don't know what your'e gonna catch, and that's like you're fishing out in this big ocean and you know there's a bunch of fish out there, you throw some bait and you have no idea what's gonna pick it up Whereas lure fishing, If I'm throwing a–if I'm throwing a little swim bait, I'm pretty sure I'm going to catch either a striper or a little blue fish

It's not that mysterious Whereas bait, you could hook onto anything out there! So we went on this trip with all– with basically all of my friends, I've got two friends, Pablo and James, Pablo, he's got a big surf rod he's trying out, um, actually the surf rod that I recommended him, So I really gotta put him on some fish So if I don't get a bite for like 10-20 minutes, it's time to jump spots Um, fish like to move! They move with the tides, and f they're not in one spot, look at another spot So I think it's time to pack up and try another spot

Alright, let's jump Pablo's been using Salt Clam, he caught himself a spot, and uh we're meeting him at this rockfishing spot Hopefully hook up some stripers Using a sabiki rig! And this is–I'm changing out the clams, I'm just putting more on, these have been on for a while So what I do is I just put a tiny piece

I used to put on like, big chunks, but I've found the bait fish like smaller chunks like this Just a little bit And I hook it through a few times And that's perfect One bite-sized piece of clam

So crabs like to get onto this, huh? Little fish probably nipping it up Maybe other little bluefish nipping it up We're going to try it, I'm not sure if it's going to work

So let's put that on, oh, I hear Fish Bites work well, too! Let's-let's put a combination, hold on Fish Bites! What kind is this? This is Salt Water This is, uh, clam scented and this is also really tough, it's like of like a Salt Clam except tougher Rip some off

Put a strip of it, seriously, it looks like a stick of gum, doesn't it? People have been catching some big reds on this I'm not tasting it Ha ha Let's put it on the same one as this The same one? Alright, so this is a good combination

Now, see this? It's got some kind of like, some kind of like, mesh in here That sticks in really well Now, things won't be able to pick this off Let's see if it'll attract something, Yes I did! Hunch back What is that? What is this? Whatever it was, it liked the Salt Clam

Wanna ask what it is? Yeah, what kind of fish is this? Woah! Ha ha ha! You kept that in the air for so long Little croaker? Little hard head? Is that what it is? Got it? Yup! What the hell? Woah As soon as it hit the water I actually heard uh, heard my drag go

It's running right now? Yeah look, what is that? It's a rockfish, dude! Is it? It's a rock fish! Do you need a net? No that's a red fish, So, it's a rock fish! It is? It's a big rock fish, man! Get the net, get the net! Woah ho ho ho! Ha ha ha! Yes! Oh my god, you got some !@#$ Watch your knee! Ohh! Sweet !@#$! Awesome, and we got that on footage! Awesome, man! I told you they'd be coming in here! So you don't want it? Alright, I've got a challenge for you people *cough* So I've caught, and I'm counting, eleven species on this Salt Clam before It works really well in Deleware, Virginia, Florida it works really, really well Um, Gulf of Mexico, right? Gulf of Mexico, we've fished that, works really well, um, but this is such a new bait that we really haven't had a huge pool of like, we really don't know what it catches! I know it catches fish where I'm at, but I'm curious to hear from you guys

The challenge, specifically: buy a pack of Salt Clams, catch as many different species as possible, record those species by taking pictures, and posting it on our Senko Skipper fishing page You can find that page on Facebook, just search for Senko Skipper Fishing Community it's a really great group of people, um, it's people from all over the world sharing their catches of the week, and uh, you'll learn a lot about different species of fish just by watching, by looking at our Facebook page Check the link below, I've included a link to nativesaltclamcom and uh, I know the people who run it, Angela, Killian, they're very quick to respond, um, and if you have any questions about Salt Clams visit them on their Facebook page, message them, ank them questions, I'm getting a lot of people asking me questions, but the, the makers of it, they're very quick to respond *gasp* It's on

It;s on It's a stripe! It's a stripe! Nice! [Brendon's Dad on the phone:] You got one? He got one! [Nice!] Right here! [Yeah buddy!] Yeah! Ha ha ha! Yeah, so we spent the past two days just looking for the fish and really keying in on where they are We know they're here, but there are so many spots that like, how do we know which one they're productive at? There's a lot of water here Right So now, what we really had to do was look at the features on Google Maps and see where the areas were, um, where we thought would hold fish and uh, we'd have to coordinate that with the tides

I feel like, the tides are the most important part of salt water fishing Finding the fish um, a lot of the fish move with the tides Two hours before high tide, two hours after high tide Stripers around this area, we know they're big because we caught some big ones, um, but, they're hard to find You know? There's so much water

It's hard to cover all that water Yeah What are some ways that you guys um, when you guys get to a new area for fishing, what are some ways you guys discover, like, where the fish are? Comment that below! Anyways, thank you guys for watching, Uh, I hope you guys enjoyed the episode, and um, Where are we going next? We're chasing stripers, right? I guess, a little bit

Oh, he postponed his surgery so that we could make some more videos Oh right, that's right Yeah, so So now I'm not getting surgery until after striped bass season Which is basically until December

Priorities! Yes, priorities! Comment below where we should go next Se ya, guys Thank you That's good
