Pier Fishing tips for Beginners: Rigging Live Shrimp!

I already did! Didn't I? Did she touch it? I touched it! You gotta touch it again, you both have to touch it again if you want another picture I'll touch the skin not the eye

Okay, touch the skin Show them how to do it! Ready? Touch it, just touch it it's fine Ahh! Today we are at Newport Pier in Miami Florida on a mission to catch some fish for dinner we will be using live shrimp for bait We hear that the fish in Florida love eating live shrimp

So here's the rig Egg sinker, swivel, leader line, hook People seem to really like to use live shrimp here, and, um, this is the common rig that I've seen, which is just a hook, 2 feet 30 lb leader, a swivel, straight to your line Um, so that's if you just wanna let the shrimp out free- lining

Uh, if you wanna put a sinker on it you put an in-line egg sinker through here and tie that on to your leader Here, Brendon So when you are hooking on a shrimp to your line you need to make sure of two things: make sure the hook isn't too big, you want the shrimp to be able to swim freely Do not kill the shrimp! Hook it on top of it's head, not the middle Look at this! What is this? Look how flat it is

What is this thing? Woah! Woah!! Turn it front ways again! It's like an optical illusion! What kind of fish is that, do you know? I think it's called a look down A look down I'm not 100% sure It is one of the strangest fishes I've ever seen, and this took a live shrimp Wow, look at that! We didn't want to eat a look down, but my dad is on something new

Woah! Wow! Now that's a good eatin' fish This is called a black drum They also love shrimp Basically everything in florida will eat a shrimp You know when they say the worst thing that can happen to you can and will happen to you? Well, it happened

What just happened? It pulled my- something pulled my rod over the- ha!- my rod is gone That's what happened Yeah, one of his rods, we were just standing here waiting for a fish to bite his rod and the one that he had out with a live bait just got pulled over and he lost it Yeah, something pulled it over! A fish just pulled it over I had it right here

No good! You gotta lift this up That was definitely a fish, right? Sh*t Must have been a big one because the whole thing just went *whew*! Rookie mistake What is that dad? Brendon's dad just hooked up on something How do you get him up? Woah! That is a big boy! What is that? Mangrove What's it called? Mango? Mangrove Snapper Oh, are they good meat? Oh yeah, they're good eating Keep it? Yeah, I'm gonna keep it

That one I'm going to have the restaurant cook for me Oh my gosh Are you guys gonna eat it? Yup Woah What's going on? He's got a big fish

Oh, there's a school out there Woah! That's a big one! Way out there? Way out there? Live shrimp is working very well, we are getting lots of bites and it seems like we're catching bigger fish That's pretty cool lookin'! It's hard to hold Woahh Now this kid is awesome, we noticed that he was patiently fishing for hours without a single bite

So we decided we should share some fun with him, and the shock on his face is priceless It is always nice to see when the younger generation is showing an interest in fishing Woah! Hold the line, hold the line! Go take a picture with your grandma Look at his human teeth! It's like the sheep head Sheeps head

Take a picture? Alright, I have no idea what kind of fish this is, hopefully one of you guys will be able to name it for me It's got really weird lookin' teeth, a spot on it's back, and this is what it looks like So comment below! Help me out! Live shrimp did the trick today! Live shrimp? Yeah, caught five different species of fish with the same bait Definitely the best day, look at this Oh my

We're gonna show how we cook it and everything, too Hopefully! We're gonna get it cooked and we're gonna show everyone how we're gonna eat our catch These are not going to waste! We are now at a Chinese restaurant, called King's Palace this place was the bomb Located in a small Chinatown in Miami, we finally found some comfort food

My family can't go a week without Chinese food, I'm serious Here, they are asking them to cook our fish They are asking the chef to prepare two of them steamed and one of them fried Snapper That's the mangrove snapper, that's the black drum, and that's the mystery fish with a spot

Black drum, mystery spot fish, we can start eating I think the name is really fancy, "mangrove," "mangrove" This place is great Home cooked place This is the black drum

It is first steamed, then covered in spring onions, ginger, cilantro, soy sauce and then it's doused in hot oil It's a traditional Chinese way of eating fish and it's my personal favorite Wondering, would you guys try it? How does this look to you? Are you ready? I only eat this fresh, ok? I'm not weirdo, but nothing beats a fresh fish head Yes, I grew up on fish heads It's been a long time since I eat one and I'm gonna totally enjoy this- Eat the lips! Stop talking, eat the lips- Lips? There's no lips, man! What are you talkin' about? Look at that big, fat lip right there! I can't eat this- Yes, you can! It's delicious! Fish lips! Oh! Mmm-mmm

Oh yeah What does it taste like? Pudding So it's more of- the texture is like a pudding-ish, tender-ish stuff It doesn't taste anything So it's more of a texture than a taste

Yeah, it's a delicacy I guess It's weird, but The fish head, it's more of a texture

Yeah It's nice and silky and, uh, soft, gelatinous- mmm, gelatinous, that's the right word Mission complete If you like this cooking segment please let us know below Do yourself a favor

Vissen op Meerval in Frankrijk [LIVE aanbeten!] – Catfish Quest #1

Good morning! We are on our way to the Lot, a new river for us, a bit more south this time We have heard there must be a lot of catfish in the south of France sothat's why we go there this time We have a long way to drive – 10+ hour drive but then we have arrived at our house and we will make the stuff ready to

be able to fish hard tormorrow Let's go! Yo Simon We are almost there, what are the plans? First we will put our stuff in the house, thenwe will buy some food for the next daysand if we then have time left, and it looks like it, we will put the boat on the river for some hoursjust to see what it looks like and where we should fish the next few days It's getting monotonous but I'm exited again 🙂 We have arrived at the Lot river What do you think of it? – There is some current, not too much so that's nice It's pretty wide and deep Yes it looks great, it's nice weather also

it was a nice drive towards here, especially the last hour Yes indeed! – And it was okay to do also

we expected it to be about 12/14 hour drivebut we did it within 11 hours And the time flies when you are exited to fish, right? So now it's time to open a beerjust enjoying the moment, then we go to the house to see what that looks likeand maybe we'll discover the river What are you doing Stef? I'm going to try and catch a fish The BBQ has been lit so we have to wait until the flames are outit will take some time before we can go eat And here is a nice little current that I will fish in the meantime I don't know what to expect but I will cast a dry fly in there and we'll see Cheers On a very successful trip already Yes indeed This already is worth the 10 hour drive So we have been barbecuing at the riversideyou have been flyfishing

without any result but heywe had a great sunset, a greatgreat weather conditions and a briljant barbeque A very nice BBQ indeed, with a good beer on the side Behind us is a garden shedowned by some happy Frenchmenwe managed to rent it via the internet, funny Via AirBNB, highly recommended Sadly there was no time left to go out with the boat anymore But that's what we will do tomorrow

First we go to sleep So let's go to bed and we'll be back at you completely GUTENMORGEN, I have had a good night sleep In this shed behind me, I will show you the inside It's really cool Good morning! – Morning Stef, eating breakfast nowsome nice coffee, croissants, pain chocolat, we have it all So let's eat the breakfast and then go and discover the river So we had a good sleep in here In our cosy tiny housewith a very cosy small bedI was punching my elbows in Simon's back all nightI can still feel them But we did sleep okay so that's nice I will show the rest of the house, here's the bathroom

just nice and tidyand the most important, a fridgethat's quite practical for usstuffed with worms 🙂 Yo Buying some groceries and then off to the water! Wow, hey Stef what are you doing I have a fish on! Wow on the first drift Yes it's a small fish but I think we were drifting for only 2 minutes and one fish came up alreadywithout using the clonk And he took the bait immediately The bite was hard too! Voilá The first catfish (in French) How cool! Yes indeed, we are fishing for only 5 minutes now, the first drifhalfway the first drift without clonking a fish comes upI'm reeling up my bait with the fish easily but the fish comes up so fast

and BAF

Super cool! The first one Yes the first of the trip on the first day We didn't know what to expect upfrontand still we don'tit can be a Lucky shotbut I don't think so, I think we are doing things right now That was a quick release Nice, fistbump! We just wanted to do rock, paper, scissors to find out who could get the first bite on the bobber

but hey it already came on the rod I had in my hand, how bizarre! So now the next fish is for Simon for sure Yo Simon, can you tell us how we are fishing? One rod in the handwith the bait under the boat, on the screen of the sonarrigged with a clonkteaser and worms And behind the boat is abobber rigged with a treble hook filled with worms on about 4 meters of depth just somewhere pelagically For a catfish that might be scared of the sonarit's more of an extra chance We have just found a very deep hole On an everage, the river is about 6 – 8 meters deep

and now we have found a spot where it's 14 meters of depth actually on a straight body of the river And on the edge of that holeis exactly where Stef caught the first one We start off with one drift completely without using the clonka nice silent and finesse approach Just by wiggling the bait is also how Stef caught his fish We didn't make the clonk wet yet It's more of a subtile approach and if, after a couple of drifts we don't get any action anymorewe will start clonking and see what happens Wauw! First there was one fish risingand came up all the way but didn't grab the bait

until we saw a second fish underneeth, looking bigger And that fish came up and took the bait! You can still see the fish on the sonar Hey this looks like a nice fish Simon there it comes I see him Cooool! Wow, very beautiful fish man Dude, we both have a catfish already Yes we are fishing for 4 drifts now! Yes this is a little bit nicer one What will it be? 130 m? Yes something like that – A bit similar to what Icaught in the previous catfish trip to France – Yes looks like it So, catfish number two! Wow what a nice fish, how big will it be, 130m? Yes something like that – between 130m and 1

40m? Really nice Super cool, such a nice way of fishing And this is only the first spot we fish Hahaha yes, the first spot we fish and we catch 2 catfish We have the idea that it could be good fishing next days! We didn't measure it but that doesnt matter so much Beautiul fish, first one for me, in total the second fish We have two bites and two fish in the boat so that's good It's heavy so I will put him back now Look him go! Okay next one for Stef A tradition: we need to celebrate the first catfish It came early so we will drink beer early And? It's even still cold, nice Yes that's the advantage of quick action We got another fish rising on this spot now, using the clonk So we will move to a next spot now, but we can always come back here But hey we have only seen one spot now We have only fished this 150 meters of the river I think there is enough to discover Yes exactly Something is happening right? YES! Yes got him! Haha a smallie A cute little small fish Nice colours on this fish, nice dark brown Yes it's beautiful indeed My second fish this trip how big will it be, 70-80 cm? A nice little baby Off to the next one Very fat little fis, they have enough to eat here Bye This morning and the beginning of afternoon it wasnice and without any wind, so we could make natural driftsusing the current of the river We had 4 bites and 3 fish in the boat Now there is some cloud cover coming in It's a little cooler so we have to wear a sweater again And drifting is also a bit less relaxt with the wind that came up so I have to do way more steering So we will try to find a spot that is more sheltered from the windso we have the chance to catch another fish This fish only bumped the bait

*sshole Yes? Yes? No! Again missed The idea is to have a nice BBQ Had a nice BBQ, now it's time to do a lastcouple of drifts in the evening hours, to see ifwe can get another bite And if not, it's okay becausethe day is complete already right, with three fish in the boatand some more bites and ativities, sofor a very first day it was brilliant butwe will just try and see if we can catch a last fish that would be very nice Wow, a lot of fish rising in here now, we are really in the last light of the day Had a lot of fish rising and a couple of subtle, nibbling bites Just bumping the bait a little bit And in the end, I believethere were three catfish on the screen, under the bait I saw three different signals under the bait And one of those took the bait very hard and out of nowhere It feels like a nice fish Yes there it is Hopla! – well that's a good fish my friend Yes, right? Beauty – That splitted tentacle, wow Yes it has some sort of double tentacle Wow it's running away Wow so cool, that was fish number 4 today, fistbump I think we will now get our stuff together, deflate the boat andhead to our beds so we can hit it again tomorrow I think so! Goodmorning! Day two today! So yesterday we have caught 4 catfish, very good for a very first day We caught most of them here just behind the bridge, so we will start off in there again today After that we are going to search for spots because tomorrow it will be sunny and without wind

so then we can fish perfectly and don't want to lose too much time on finding spots So that's what we will be doing today Nice big and fat worms We bought them at PS LifebaitsYou don't want to save money on good bait but this guy Roy, is doing it very good We left on saturday and

I asked him to deliver me the worms on friday so that

we didn't have them at home for too long That was not a problem and all are perfectly packed and as you can seeit are very nice worms and they are fresh and alive and kicking So that's for sure a good one I recommend Yes! Nice! – Lost it ah damn! But he is still there, drop the bait! It's coming up fast yes, now you have it! Yes! How does it feel? Not that big, somewhat smaller then the previous one Ah not that bad Coool! Got him! So cool! We had three bites on the first spot

of which Stef caught onenow it's time tohead to the next spot, let's see if we can make even as nice drifts in there as we could here Yes! Well Simon, This means it is my turn again now! – Yes indeed A fish of about 80 cm? Yes something like that Bye! This morning started a bit drizzly with some rain andsome cloud cover, but now the sky is clearing! We are looking for some new spots againand now we have found a place with 15 – 16 meters op depth, wow Yes this really smells like a good fishing spot – Look at that drop off A lot of dirt on the drop off This really looks promising again yes, got him! Number three! Yes? hit it man! I'm rigging the hook with new worms again because I just got a bite And when you reel it in then, there are several worms missing again Aaaand yes, got him Good job Yes! Strike on video So cool! Hey that's number four! One more and we broke our day record! Crushed it! ah no, just broke it Your first really small fish of the trip yes but a fish is a fish Go and grow bigger Got him! And number five, another small fish Well this is probably the smallest catfish I have ever caught, I hope it will stay like this It's biting mi thumb right now Bye bye my boy! Fish number six today Hey number 10 of the trip! But a very careful bite it was But it does have both of the hooks in it's mouth Good one Hopla! Number six! It's going good like this This is one of the better fish of today right Yes this is a very nice one indeed Well that was number six for todaywe measured the fish and it was 104cm And The hook are completely empty, it has taken off all the worms

So time for me to do the rigging We are now in the middle of our last drift todaythe sun just disappearedit's starting to get dark so it's time to

wrap up the day But hey, yesterday I caught a nice fish in the sunsetso I think we will continue for 10 minutes or so Yes! Well this fish went very far There were two fish under my bait at the same timeand this one was the top onea different fish that looked a bit bigger was beneath so I tried that one at first but id didn't reactand when I reeled up the bait very fast

this fish wasn't scared but just came up with the bait It grabbed the bait but I missed him, the fis stayed under the boat Then I dropped the bait again, just a bit too fast like really on top of it's headbut it was lying with it's mouth open, so it took immediately And there it goes again Yes! I just said to Stef

these are the last couple of clonks and then we head home again But then a fish came up again And it's a nice fish The biggest so far I think – yes without doubt But I was allowed to fish for 'that fish' And he was swimming a

couple of times very shallow around 2 or 3 meters of depthso then it's very hard to keep it on the screen of the sonar But it turned out good, and he grabbed the bait

and it's on the hook nowand I'm very happy Yes got him ! This what we came for right? Indeed! On the very last stretch of the drifta last couple of conksand a fish came up Came up to look at the bait a couple of times, came up higher and higherwe were above 12 meters of water

and I believe we were around 3 meters with the bait

And bof, he took it Good fight, And this is him! Shall we measure it? – sure! We measured it on 134m

but it's fat and heavy built That's why it is so heavy and so strong So cool, time to release him yes see you later okay time to go home To organise things and

put on dry clothes and so on But what an insane day, this was fish number eight? Incredible, first day 4 fish, today 8 fishand the coolest is, we still have 3 days left! So cool!

Meerval vangen in Frankrijk [LIVE aanbeten!] – Catfish Quest #2

Good morning! Day 3, we already have 12 catfishway better then expected And today we have ideal weatherabout 25 degrees, no wind and a clear sky so we are going to make a long day on the water for sure! And we will put the boat into the water on a new spot, maybe we will find some new fishing spots as well Yes, let's go! Boat is in the water again Here we go again! ah missed it Missed it again, small one yes looks good in my opinion Just checking if everything looks good after the two bites but it looked good send it down again Yes now we have him! yes! Small one High in the water again Nice fish anyway Hoppa, jumping catfish I'll just take a sip of my coffee Fighting a catfish and drinking coffee at the same time No problem for mister Jansens And on flip-flops right Number one for today And this one just grabbed the bait good Nice, very nice in the sun It looks like they are a bit more difficult today

the first section where we got some bites yesterday, we didn't see so much this time

but a bit further we did see them, very high up in the waterbut acting very hard, hey were only nibbling the baitI missed three bites already But this one took the bait good but was hooked on the small stingerso that tells me that this one was a bit more carfull too But yes Anyway a nice fish! Nice, number one The water is still chilly Nope Yes? Yes! This looks like a nice one Looks a bit bigger Follow the boy on instagram Take it easy Hopla, the second fish of the day First I missed a biteand a bit further on this fish came up and quite easily it took the bait, it was not that picky Allright, number two can swim back and then it's time to follow the tradition, open up a beer! So we both caught our catfish todayit's just after noon so time for beer You hit the camera! Lost it It took off all the worms Nope too bad No! But it comes back up again a second fish is coming up too Got 'm! Nice! Well, feels good a bit better fish This is the biggest you have caught yet Yes for sure Yes, got him So, a new spot, outside of a curve The first drift immediately2 signals under the bait, I miss the first onebut that one grabbed the bait again, that's this fish The biggest one I caught on this trip yet Yes very nice fish indeed And also the strongest, and the heaviest It weights quite much, this is about 10 kilo's I guess I think so hopla! Number five We only had 5 minutes left before the BBQand this troublemaker makes surethat it's Simon's turn after the BBQ Nice! we can start the BBQ immediately after this fish So we had a brilliant BBQ And now we are back on the fish immediately got a bite on the worms

and this is the way we are fishing

with a short, stiff rod rigged with a 150gr clonkteasera treble hook fully rigged with big fat wormsand an extra single hook, also rigged with two worms And that has toconvince the fish to bite To nibble a little bit on the worms or just to take the bait all the way And how we do it is pretty simple Drop the bait under the boatin the cone of the sonar, look here it goes down This is the bait going down It's about 15 meters deep and the bait is now haning onabout 7,5 or 8 meters of depth And here is a very mysterious

piece of wood, the clonk You can make some sort of strange, clonking sound with this tool

and I don't know what the catfish like about it but

they all react good to it, very strange That sound, they seem to be attracted to that And often you will se a signal coming up from the bottomrising towards the bait And then it's a matter of moving the bait a little bitor let it sit still, or lift it very carefully And often you feel a little bit nibbling like this That they are just bumping it a bit But that's not something you can say up front, every fish has it's own user manual Yes every catfish reacts different And sometimes it's a big, hard strike and the last bite I got was just a soft nibble And in the end you will see by the thickness of the signalon the sonarwheter it's a big or a small fish and this was

a small fish I guess YESSS Aah that was nice That's so nice that you feel the fish go down with your bait

and that you can just stand up straight tohang into the rod with your full weight, so nice! HAHAHA YES! This is SO cool! Number 18 Pretty nice fish too wow about 110 cm Very cool Hopla Okay, this is fish number 6 for today What will it be? about a meter? I think it's a bit longer then 1 meter So nice in the evening sun, I think we have aboutone hour light left, and now it's Stef's turn again Let's make a picture and release her again Yes It looks like it's going higher then your bait – No it's on! – oh, strange Wow There he is already Nice Lost it It was a small one Drop it immediately because I still see some more fish It's your turn now Yes it does count, with a landing net we would have had it sothat was number 18, voilá! And we go on Maybe nice to show

the fish I just lost Here the fish came up to the bait for the first timedidn't do anything but the fish dropped down again Here I think, shit it's going away I have to do somethingSo I'm clonking another time, a good and loud clonk and you see the fish is reacting directly to that and comes up again And here it grabs the bait, I set the hookthe fight start and here I lost it sadly Now you can see, that clonk really works So strange indeed What would it imitate orwould it create irritation or curiosity? I have no clue and to be honest, I don't care

As long as it works Let's continue! Yes, your turn Yo, what's the plan Yes It's the last 10 minutes of the day I guess The sun is gone and we have the last light of the sunset And the last drifts didn'tdeliver any bites dispite a lot of rising fish

on the spot where we got our action today So that's almost dissapointing, actually less then expected And now we are back on the spot where we put in the boat this morning And we saw today that that's a nice spot as well, the same spot where Stef caught the biggest one of the day So we will do a last drift in here, like for 10 minutes to seeif we can get another fish rising and after that we will get out the boat I know the deal with those last drifts, yesterday it was the same

I caught my small fish in the last driftand just after that I caught a bigger fish Oké bye I wanted to show it to the camera but hey, it's already gone It was a small catfish but hey, we have accomplished our mission, caught 8 fishthe same amount as yesterday It was a big succes today, let's go home for a good sleep to hit it hard again tomorrow! Good morning, we are back Day 4 today It again is a couple of degrees warmer today They say it's going to be 27 degrees today Today we have a bit different approach then all the other dayswe have caught the numbers now

we have caught 20 fish in 3 day's so that's

way ahead of our expectations Today we want to try and target the somewhat bigger fishand how do we do this? Well just by approachingthe spots way more silentand using the clonk way less, the first drifton every spot completely without using the clonkand do another drift with just a couple of clonksbecause we have the impression thatwe have seen a couple of very big fish under the bait and we think thatthe big fish know about this clonk and get scared of it So we think we need a more subtle approach for the bigger fish So that's what we will try today and in case it's

really nothingthen we will switch to more clonking, but I think we willgive it a good try for some hours like this Yes we will give it a good go, this is the spot wherewe saw the biggest fish yesterdayand the first drift without clonk I already had 2 fish rising to the baitthat really went for the bait but didn't take it in the end So I think if we persist on this approach

that we will catch something And another funny thing is that

those bigger fish all show up in the first drift on a spot We approach the spot for the first time and on a distance

we shut down the big engine

and drift with the current towards the spot, and in the first drift

is when we see the bigger fish When you drive back and drift againthose big fish don't show up anymore So that's why we chose for the somewhat more silentapproach, hoping they won't be scared So the fish counter is ticking right now or what? Yes we already have 20 fish! 😉 Yes Still What time is it? Good question, I think 19:30 or so We've already had the BBQ We have fished all day

and Stef had, I believe

2 or 3 bites? Yes, well you can't call it bites So we didn't catch any yet today Yes that's part of the deal, right? There are good days and down days and today is a down day for the catfish activity, we also see less fish rising We can't do anything about it Today was a bit warmer day then the previous days

so that can be the difference So we have quite some confidence in the evening bite The sun is finally setting

So I think now isthe time to catch the first one of the day And Stef was so niceI was watching him fish all daybut Stef was so nice to let me fish for half an hour now and then it's Stef's turn again Because we are switching after every fish and I didn't catch any yetbut I'm a gentleman Well, allright We were out today for the big ones, right? And did we do it? Well, it's a very tough day so far Just a few nibbles for Stef, it was Stef's turn to fish So now Stef is allowed to catch 2 So now finally the glove can be worn today also nice It's still dry, that doesnt happen often No that didn't happen often in here indeed I think it's really because of the setting sunand now they are starting to get more active

We get more fish rising as well and I missed a nibble too Got him! So there is fish number one for today So now it's Stef's turn Let him swim andsee if stef can catch one now I think he can Beautiful release, fistbump So nice Did it! Again in the sunset the fish start to bite Yes insane – Stef is speechless

But it do is the big 'small fish show' yes that's true But at least it's a show Yes that's true A nice, yellow colored fish this one Incredible how these fish are *ssholes in biting at the moment They keep coming up, and coming up, and keep showing interestwhen you clonk they keep coming and hang just centimeters under the bait but doing NOTHING Whatever you try You can stand upside down and dance with a hula hoop, doesn't matter They just dont take the bait But then all of a sudden the switch turnsand then it doesnt matter what you do, they will just grab it yes this is just a game of persistance Bye bye boy See you later So nice A bit better fish? yes for sure Well Simon, the next one is for you Show me what you've got So that's quite a fish right? – Yes that one is meter+ Yes very cool right! – Yep for sure! The whole day you are fishing for a couple of fish only looking at the bait andin the evening hours, they come all active but still just rarely a bite or a nibble or what so ever But now we catch 2 or 3 fish in 1,5 hours so that's okay Simon, now it's your turn again Yes nice! So the last day Just a short day today We have been fishing a bit longer yesterday evening

so we slept quite late and

we slept somewhat longer this morning, we have a long drive tomorrow All good Stef? As we said, didn't sleep that good 🙂 First close the valve, and then you pump This afternoon we will leave the water in time to get the stuff ready

so we're only going for some hours

to see if we can get the last action Let's hope so! Yo Simon, the last day now 18:05 in the evening, we are fishing for some hours already What did you catch? Result: 1 nibble That's not much – No but we had a brilliant BBQ again, sit in the sun was nice but the fish activity is near 0 It's the same story for other anglers We spoke to several carp anglers andand they all don't catch anything anymore the last two days I do have the confidence that when wefish the evening hours again that we will get more activity again but

we are going to leave early today We have a long drive tomorrow and I think we are done now I think this is the last drift and we will get the gear together after this drift

We had an amazing tripa bit more tough the last 2 days butthat's part of the game and it makes you realise how coolthe first couple of days were So that was our French adventure, now it's time to head home If you liked this video, give it a blue thumbs up, and don't forget to subscribe for our next adventures Let's go!
