proud every time he hit the water and it
5:43
doesn’t matter if he wins it isn’t it
5:45
catches fish he just misses proud
5:47
because of the person that he is then
5:49
that comes from being raised correctly
5:54
he has to have a little bit installed
5:57
any my
5:58
stand that but the boys has been raised
6:02
right
6:02
he loves his 40 it’s not just put that

7:35
take commission but they ended up doing
7:37
a bunch of boat driving they like
7:38
driving the boat around
7:40
hello good stuff
7:45
well it is that’s and it’s a great time
7:49
of the year you get those kids out there
7:51
will your fishing rod and if the fish
7:53
and they catch something that’s a bonus
7:55
but just to get out there and spend a
7:58
little time with them on water very
8:00
relaxing and makes you feel good not
8:02
know Gina Baker a good i’m there
8:06
yeah and the fish are biting pretty good
8:10
on the Ohio
8:11
now even though it is a lake nearby
8:15
pretty good flat hair dark to their
8:19
starting to put the feed bag on it
8:23
you’re welcome
8:24
that’s awesome i guess down there around
8:26
65 degrees they really start gorging
8:29
down
8:29
yes yes i do well Justin cars i know he
8:33
was fishing in the area that I normally
8:35
fish and he had some nice had some nice
8:40
flat head they call a real nice blue so
8:44
I’m not the area that he fishes on you
8:47
that’s where he was guidance and I think
8:50
he had a couple of two or three people
8:53
from Pennsylvania with him so I think I
8:57
did pretty good had some nice pictures
9:03
of flatheads you
9:06
yeah that’s he’s always in the cats
9:11
this is one of my favorite times or fish
9:14
right now
9:15
yeah you live cut baked they’re pretty
9:22
much you know pretty much you can find
9:25
them pretty easy right now if it ever be
9:28
just a little bit of current and makes
9:31
it even better but the Ohio isn’t this
9:36
time of year is not known to have
9:38
current the when the barge goes by
9:41
that’s about the only current billing
9:42
years
9:43
oh yeah you fired your child and mother
9:48
of my crown current yeah yeah well
9:52
actually I don’t want to be that anchor
9:55
down when it’s like yeah especially this
10:02
time of year the waters cool on downs
10:04
you know I’m looking for drop off some
10:07
stuff like at ledges and all anchored
10:11
down I i hate to do it but you know
10:16
throw a live bait out there through you
10:19
know cut to keep Jack even shadows
10:22
really good right now
10:23
shed live shad dead share definitely
10:27
ticket on the Ohio right now
10:29
yeah this is the time of year i love
10:32
focusing on I’m seem to be great this
10:38
time of year is the one of the topics
10:44
that we was not addressed and ideas is
10:46
fall fishing and transitioning water and
10:49
stuff like the added and woman with
10:54
things that happens that I’ve noticed is
10:56
it seems like you can catch fit cats on
11:00
no shipped yeah pretty much year-round
11:03
but in the wintertime and fall and early
11:08
spring for me a lot of timeshare is more
11:12
preferred date than even skip yeah
11:16
yes and the bigger they are the better
11:20
they look and they’re easier to get
11:27
right now cause a ball up
11:30
yeah especially when water gets court
11:32
kind of triggers them
11:34
Shh that makes this long as you find
11:44
them and then you find me
11:46
usually the plant your hundred times to
11:48
get them even kitchenette out there 2-3
11:51
times and and have enough for a day and
11:55
water school enough that if you’ve got
11:57
any kind of a lot will or a tanky film
12:02
there and if you want cheap on the live
12:03
you can do that and if you just want to
12:07
tell me when I see the one that I stays
12:10
good forever
12:11
you don’t have to hide our corner this
12:13
time of year this is good for the whole
12:15
day
12:20
and when you put the you put the shadow
12:23
in your life well you know pinky you
12:26
have a live where bait well they don’t
12:30
get all stressed out like they normally
12:31
would when water is a lot warmer mystery
12:38
that’s true and it’s a it’s a great time
12:41
to put some of that fish life additive
12:44
in there and then babies estate content
12:47
all day long and yesterday they’ve got
12:50
some wonderful products and anybody that
12:52
had tried that needs to because it’s
12:55
really good and we had a chance to walk
12:57
back to you my been with sophisticated
13:00
artificial little bit you put some of
13:02
that that the stuff that helps them stop
13:04
the bleeding it’s just what’s really
13:06
well yeah
13:19
I think that debate transition and
13:22
there’s a lot of times that I don’t just
13:26
sit the the fish when you’re fishing if
13:30
one pops laughter it’s been under for a
13:32
few days you can usually go up and
13:35
shallow with the shadows and as long as
13:38
water temperatures have been pretty much
13:39
eat fish if you want to once long as
13:44
they can get
13:45
yeah the other thing that happens this
13:50
time of year he’s likely likes him
13:54
the other thing that happens this time
13:58
of years uh if we get a warming trend
14:01
where you get a data it’s really a nice
14:04
lot of sunshine and stuff it will heat
14:07
game rocks up along the bank and then
14:11
the shadow movie in to that little bit
14:16
warmer water and then the the cats move
14:20
in right behind him
14:26
yes well maybe if you don’t have your
14:27
regular shallow yeah a little up there
14:31
after the date issues question about
14:35
that
14:36
tributaries are real good this time of
14:41
year to especially if you’ve got an
14:43
influx of water coming in all over i
14:49
agree with that and I one of my favorite
14:51
places to fish if I’m either honored
14:54
river
14:55
ormally either one if you have a smaller
14:58
river or Creek that has water running
15:00
out of it
15:02
one of my favorite place is finishes
15:05
running at the mouth where that water is
15:06
entering the big one especially overlay
15:11
director too and a lot of times you’ll
15:18
notice 24 colors of water the stained
15:21
water it will the water that’s a little
15:23
more clear and summaries even bait will
15:28
be in there not on the transition period
15:30
between swing the two colors of the
15:32
water
15:33
and you can usually catch fish right
15:35
there
15:37
yeah yeah we found that out on the way
15:42
tell race right there were I can’t
15:46
remember what creak comes in right there
15:49
but coming out the Creek was really
15:50
muddy and right there down that line it
15:54
was like they would come out of the
15:55
muddy water and ambush into the clear
15:57
week he was drifting right inside the
16:01
clearwater right next to the muddy and
16:03
it was a distinct line and that may
16:06
never just busted it right in there we
16:08
found that out last year’s pretty cool
16:10
yeah this one’s a find a lot of Baton
16:14
pleased that I said you usually find
16:25
bait fish in there in transition
16:28
preacher yeah yeah we would throw the
16:33
net right up in the creek right that we
16:36
know we’re not round the transition
16:39
point you know cause it’s pretty deep
16:41
breath and there but you know there was
16:44
a lot of bait right there in the open of
16:45
that Creek playing our world later as
16:56
the woman’s killer
17:04
what’s that yeah maybe killed a
17:09
specially in locarno are both situations
17:13
they be excellent you go through their
17:16
turn around go back to three times
17:18
especially the market all the fears your
17:20
fish and things are amazing that we used
17:25
them all summer in and they are a great
17:28
asset
17:30
we’re running to run the church boards
17:33
and can run small baits on this poor
17:37
bulge and amaze me long last is bored
17:40
which would only talk two inches shot
17:42
like a holdup a big debate and text read
17:45
out as but if you want to use have a
17:47
skipjack or the whole thing and and put
17:52
your 10 or 12 matches weight on it you
17:54
can put that TX 44 out there and you’re
17:56
good to go
17:57
yeah yeah and don’t be don’t be here
18:02
about downsizing they’ll take him to
18:06
small bait just time here
18:07
that’s correct that’s correct
18:12
I know you’re excited about that that
18:14
rear player board we run out the back
18:17
looks like a call that thing is just
18:19
it’s amazing how that works and keep out
18:23
where you want to be
18:24
yeah I just like it for the fact that
18:27
the lines don’t cross it in front you
18:31
know they stay straight back behind the
18:33
boat I just see a lot of potential I let
18:37
the stress if you got the board and
18:41
absolutely out the side
18:43
yep yep i had I i think for us a
18:54
ten-foot-long rods is probably won’t be
18:59
effective as were able to reward I see
19:01
no reason you have over a seven have
19:04
faith foot rot because you don’t need it
19:08
to set the pattern even look at you
19:10
can’t get hurt you can enable or and we
19:13
running boards down there met this
19:15
pretty hot iron
19:17
yeah yes he city they went out quick for
19:22
that that one that cone i can remember
19:26
what they call that what they called a
19:27
stern planar it a that thing you can put
19:31
that all the long ways back i see a lot
19:33
of potential with that
19:39
are you talking
19:46
yeah stern planar that cone cone shape
19:49
planner board rock
19:52
yeah this is cleaner year put that way
19:56
but way out behind the boat if you want
19:58
to or you could run it way back here and
20:07
it’s not going to write you wanted to
20:08
wait on there too and it is park is the
20:15
coolest about it is you can run a bunch
20:17
of as far back
20:19
I’m the bow 8e you at now if I’m running
20:26
boards i want to be able to see him I
20:28
don’t want so far out
20:30
i cants the this building is important
20:36
as the job again but like the watermelon
20:45
and a with those church board you can
20:47
set them up to go we losing like it he
21:02
dropped off
21:03
yeah those TX 44 son of a 14 inches
21:08
yeah I think that’s what they are you
21:10
there are fairly large board so you can
21:16
see them fairly good when they’re when
21:19
they’re out there on behind the boat
21:20
attention
21:21
yeah yeah yeah well we had a we had a
21:25
ways back behind about my yard
21:29
suspending with them are dragon with
21:31
them know we were suspended with him we
21:33
had like eight ounces away and skipjack
21:36
hit on the backside of it just sitting
21:39
there watching them cut the one time we
21:41
were anchored down and we just you know
21:45
put him out there just steer them where
21:48
we wanted them so so what kind of dance
21:52
with
21:52
I’ll use if yall unlike if the water of
21:56
dance was changing from you know 45 230
22:01
like that which are just put them at
22:03
about 25 foot and go with it
22:06
yeah probably here that’s what I would
22:08
do without you know what i was thinkin
22:13
about you know dragon would be awesome
22:14
with him you know because you know that
22:17
it’s so easy to get tangled up you know
22:21
especially when you’re when you’re
22:22
trying to stay on certain contours and
22:25
hit certain structures that you have
22:27
planned to go over you know having them
22:31
spread out further and having your two
22:34
rods are close together staggered better
22:37
you know I was thinking dragon with him
22:40
would be pretty good but i just don’t
22:42
know how bad it would be getting hung up
22:44
a lot
22:45
yeah depends on you know it’s a way that
22:49
you’re using and that country what I
22:57
know chuck e con of any kind of dragging
23:05
what assist them was a in Memphis and
23:11
Owensboro block was little weasel are
23:16
you dragging friends and Doc can make
23:20
some really short and it worked out
23:23
extremely well I was pretty impressed
23:26
those I had went and got some of the
23:29
year
23:30
we’re a close i believe that it was a
23:36
once bottle is clear and fired a lot of
23:43
the shop
23:46
Oh up put ma actually get the neighbors
23:51
considerably longer but we only had him
23:55
home what
23:56
no yeah we only lost one read old time
24:01
it’s a whole time we’re efficient you
24:04
know owensboro and Memphis we only lost
24:08
one rig dragon so but y’all hittin some
24:13
pretty heavy structure alpha here
24:16
yeah we’re especially in owensboro we
24:18
were dragons version we were dragging
24:20
through trees were dragging over top of
24:22
rocks and it was working its way right
24:25
through it was as floats for using on
24:30
your leaders the bottom dwellers I don’t
24:35
think I was even using your name using
24:38
flow to rely on part of emojis and the
24:44
smells the details and on i got it in
24:49
using a chat cool yeah a balloon playing
24:55
in fact I never could get it just right
24:57
it seemed lost our most of all I have to
25:01
work on that look that great idea once
25:04
you figure out and Isis and that and the
25:08
matter you didn’t bloom has something to
25:10
do with size 8 doing gonna have to
25:12
figure that out here else uh look really
25:18
well and then get that plumbing
25:20
yeah so what white without getting out
25:27
dragon tales you’re getting crumpled
25:29
three and four ounces on your dragon
25:31
tales
25:32
yeah yeah i had about three ounces on
25:36
mine i won’t mind just a little bit
25:40
lighter i was little i didn’t want I
25:44
didn’t want it
25:46
it was a little bit stiffer and I didn’t
25:49
want it you know just you know at an
25:52
angle it kind of stood up on renting in
25:54
and would pop along you could you see
25:57
the movement on the rod is it was
25:59
working its way through is it stop
26:06
was I don’t think that the law school
26:09
gonna brush better
26:11
yeah yeah because they’ll do their will
26:17
their work right over top of it you know
26:19
just so how long were y’all making the
26:22
longest ones my longest one was 18
26:26
inches and and so that the air that’s
26:30
trapped trapped in a microbiology yeah
26:33
that’ll make it either you know when you
26:36
go to put it in the water you can see
26:38
how it wants to you know if it all if it
26:41
lays over on its side or if it’s kind of
26:44
stand straight up so that’s a shorter
26:52
ones that’s what you know it you’re
26:54
gonna drag spots that don’t have a whole
26:56
lot of structure you know mostly mud
26:58
flats and stuff like that they work out
27:00
a lot better for those yeah especially
27:03
if you’re going through muzzle bit if
27:07
you you know where you’re going across
27:09
the zebra beds or just even the bigger
27:12
muzzle bed because it will just sit
27:13
there and tap along what I ended up
27:17
using all mine with arrows in just 38
27:19
ounce there’s three eighths inch air
27:22
hose and it worked out really well
27:28
oh yeah yeah i think we only lost one
27:30
rig I think all during that time we only
27:33
lost one rig
27:35
what was that was the cheapest most most
27:38
economical shot y’all found 22 IM down
27:41
with just regular buckshot from the
27:45
sporting goods store
27:46
well what I ended up happening is I had
27:49
a round LED balls i have no idea where
27:53
they came from but I got a whole bunch
27:55
of those and I i would put 10 of those
27:58
in a dragging read and just until you
28:04
get about four ounces in there 34 ounces
28:06
and then yeah something like that are
28:08
measured it out is it was like 34 ounces
28:11
with 10 of those in there but they they
28:14
didn’t move around they were solid you
28:16
know I had tamp them down inside there
28:19
ok so when you’re using those rigs of do
28:24
you also have to just how much weight
28:28
you put in them up for how much air do
28:31
you have been it you think those would
28:33
actually float they would float that
28:35
they didn’t have any a letter and i’m at
28:37
all correct correct
28:39
ok so if you’ve got if you’ve got if
28:43
you’re making a mountain you might want
28:45
to put more land under keep them from
28:48
floating up off the bottom
28:50
yeah well I don’t know they did thanks
28:53
we were 35 40 foot of water and a word
28:56
they were taking that they were always
28:58
on the bottom
28:59
cool yeah I didn’t know how much I had
29:02
to experiment was want to make some
29:03
longer ones and i want to put at least
29:08
amount in there as possible but I want
29:10
to make sure that the aired don’t bring
29:13
them up off the bottom either so no it’s
29:16
they’ll definitely stayed in cuz right
29:19
now this that this is the time of year I
29:22
like to really drag and I like to get
29:24
especially on fishing lake a in the even
29:28
a even the river
29:30
I’ll get out there and i’ll throw that
29:33
and i put it way out behind about it is
29:36
way out behind the boat so I’ve got a
29:40
different angle
29:41
you know I like two rods up high and
29:43
your rod holder that we have got a
29:46
different angle approach angle as that
29:48
bait is drifting for being drug alone
29:52
and you and you want to go as slow as
29:55
you can because of fish now right now or
29:58
is aggressive and they were a month ago
30:01
right and you know i was i was using a
30:06
noble owns on mod my later up you know
30:11
and I had a big o bait you know probably
30:15
a half a skipjack big skip day and Bob
30:20
blue the balloon up
30:22
not quite the size of a baseball and
30:25
that’s really way too much it had my
30:28
bait way off the bottom
30:32
and I and I was using a three or four
30:36
ounce of pencil thinker and you know
30:41
just just mind-blowing that blowing
30:43
outside of a baseball is a huge I had to
30:46
go back down about the size of a golf
30:47
ball and uh it it seemed to have when I
30:52
put my bait down the water beside the
30:54
boat going to speed that I was gonna go
30:56
it acted like you know it was still it
30:58
was still bringing that bait up pretty
31:00
high been a little bit bigger than a
31:02
golf ball was done really good here but
31:05
the size of a baseball it probably would
31:07
have had it up back there on the top of
31:09
the water probably yeah that’s that’s a
31:13
big difference
31:15
yeah it’s the i use a David HP bottom
31:21
dweller those coal mill barbers that’s
31:24
what I put on monitor and they’re you
31:26
know they’re slightly smaller than a
31:27
golf ball
31:29
yeah yeah they were really well like
31:31
those and i’ve been i’ve been using
31:43
those double action hooks for my
31:45
stingers and that’s really paid off man
31:50
you know the more I was thinking about
31:52
it when I was missing fish you know
31:55
they’re doing a lot of pulling and
31:56
yanking you know at the time they’re
31:59
doing all that short by never really not
32:01
doing anything slow enough that a circle
32:04
hook seem like it’s going to work
32:06
correctly
32:07
um you know so i would put that stinger
32:10
hook down there not i got those charlie
32:12
browns and and using the right number
32:16
number 8 charlie brown’s as my stinger
32:19
and I’m catching a whole lot of fish on
32:22
that stinger hood but when i go to short
32:28
by that real quick that they’ve been
32:29
this big it’s getting pretty good yeah
32:33
you know I still got that big number ten
32:36
up there if they want to try to have a
32:38
big one hits and try to engulf the whole
32:40
bite you know that big circle hook up
32:42
there to do this job and then
32:44
got a little stinger down there for when
32:46
they’re just messing around with it it’s
32:48
been it’s been getting ahold of him
32:50
pretty good what else you got lube
33:09
parent for your fishing and colette
33:12
efficient what’s that long i said what
33:19
else do you guessed right before
33:20
entering oh well efficient i always
33:27
downside my baits i’ll try stick one big
33:31
head out there but then the rest of the
33:35
time my baits you know are no bigger
33:38
than my thumbnail are usually small bait
33:43
I don’t know
33:44
caught a lot of big fish just on them
33:45
little is a lesson I learned off Willie
33:50
Smith i watch that guy bring in some big
33:53
fish and he’s only using nail side Bates
33:56
and it kills me to downsize home and i
34:02
like that i like to put big beta on as I
34:05
can and I just don’t I don’t like to
34:08
downsize and but here in the last couple
34:11
years I’ve been just forcing myself and
34:14
downsize just see if it makes a
34:15
difference it and it does big-time it
34:22
that there’s a I can’t remember the guys
34:27
name he’s a schoolteacher out of
34:29
Arkansas and him and his daughter come
34:31
to wheeler you know during spring break
34:33
and fish you know he’s called a couple
34:37
of hundred pounders you know by the new
34:40
plant stuff he was down a few years ago
34:43
when he was below whaler down on Wilson
34:46
and he called a hundred four-pounder on
34:51
a piece of skipjack the size of your
34:53
thumbnail
34:55
yeah he said they couldn’t you know he
34:59
kept using bigger baits kept downsize
35:02
and cut into small pieces not downsizing
35:06
the hook just the bait but that’s Marty
35:08
here BAM thought that hundred
35:11
four-pounder man i’m like unbelievable
35:15
now down bored Wilson day and the lower
35:18
end of wilson dayum that’s my favorite
35:22
area to fish down there just because
35:24
it’s more like the Ohio you know it’s it
35:28
built more like the Ohio River you know
35:31
you got the channels and stuff like that
35:34
and it looks like a rivers not like when
35:36
you go back on the lake and it’s all
35:40
wide open and so yet that when you went
35:47
out to Kingston it was kinda like that
35:50
up in that area too right yeah it’s like
35:52
yeah it’s like day Ohio except where
35:55
noted their roots all the time I fish
35:58
there’s never been any current know
36:01
right you know better
36:04
we’re out there dragon in bates and you
36:08
know we were dead stick and Bates but
36:11
the bigger fish that we caught this past
36:15
this year all came off of the Dragon
36:18
Rick’s way out behind the boat lot
36:24
why do you think that you think the boat
36:27
and the noise and the shadow of the boat
36:30
itself may disturb the fish a little bit
36:33
and by the time the boat moves out of
36:34
the way that the fish may be relaxed and
36:37
come back in you do that or it’s a you
36:42
know they can track it easier because
36:45
you know I’ve got them way out behind
36:46
the boat I’m just kind of bees along we
36:49
were ongoing about point 3.4 miles an
36:53
hour because i was into a win
36:56
I had a head wind pushing into the boat
36:59
so in fact i had drift socks out on both
37:05
sides of the boat so that i could keep
37:08
control of the boat because of wind was
37:11
blowing into the boat into the nose of
37:14
the boat i use the drifts off to keep
37:16
the boat from you know how the how the
37:19
wind will try to move your boat around
37:21
and he gets a little bit sideways but if
37:25
you have the drag those big drift socks
37:28
on there
37:29
it keeps that boat locked in place and
37:32
it’s easier for my road and keep control
37:35
of the boat it doesn’t want to move
37:36
around on me
37:38
yeah I’ve done that quite a bit and you
37:41
know I’ve spot lot i do my dress stock
37:45
out the back and I’ve actually been so
37:49
stable it was it was almost like having
37:52
an anchor out and I actually casted and
37:56
tightline out behind the boat like I was
37:59
anchoring with pretty good success with
38:04
slight crosswinds yeah we’ve been on a
38:08
heavy wind i’ll put that drifts are
38:11
count on the world whatever side to win
38:13
just getting on a boat you put that
38:16
drifts off out there and you lock it
38:17
down it won’t allow that backside of
38:20
that boat to move around on you going to
38:23
follow if you’re going to move along
38:25
real slow the with the wind or have a
38:28
big effect on trying to push that boat
38:30
because you don’t have enough speed to
38:33
kind of keep that boat in place but you
38:35
put a adrift soft out on that windward
38:38
side where it’s hitting it’ll lock that
38:41
boat and left it actually allow you to
38:43
work a Ledge parallel to a little ledge
38:46
or if you’re working the shoreline with
38:49
a planar bored you know it’ll be it’ll
38:53
keep it right there for you don’t of
38:57
when the wind at the wind stops blowing
38:59
for a while does that does the dress not
39:02
like sink yard
39:04
yeah it’ll start easing down and that
39:08
don’t affect anything is right there to
39:10
work again my needs two yeah just it
39:12
just adds a little bit of drag to your
39:15
you’re trolling motor has to work a
39:17
little bit harder because of the Sox
39:20
I’ve got on
39:20
I better 54 inches across so they’re
39:23
pretty big
39:24
ya think they’re big bags but I got a 24
39:28
foot boat to that it takes a lot to you
39:32
know keep that thing where I want but
39:34
but this is the first year that I caught
39:37
a flat head drag and I’ve never caught a
39:39
flat head dragon and I taught that 45
39:43
pounder and he wasted that rod when he
39:46
hit it
39:47
yeah but that’s pretty exciting because
39:51
up
39:52
I’ve never caught one drifting or dragon
39:55
yeah that’s a been first format are
39:59
caught like that I’ve never caught a
40:01
flat head driftin but and but dried this
40:08
year with the dragon definitely i was
40:11
really into that I that’s all we were
40:13
doing it in King’s then was a drink just
40:16
dragging a lot of paints you know we had
40:18
four behind the boat then we have 23
40:22
outside dead sticking know now in the
40:29
wintertime actually really in the fall
40:31
when it cools down i’ve gone to the
40:33
Cumberland River and will anchor down
40:35
you know we just keep moving and keep
40:38
moving moved from spot to spot but then
40:43
when i fished cumberland i’m i’m using
40:45
you know you can go right there to power
40:47
plant and get your fresh give Jack and
40:50
then you know i’m sticking out 17 18
40:54
inch skipjacks you know just walking at
40:56
a off sticking the whole plan gather
40:58
yeah but generally this time of year all
41:03
all hunting for his trophies here i’m
41:06
just trying it my bucket list is a
41:09
hundred-pound around know if I’ll make
41:11
it or not I keep trying
41:16
when do you usually start downsizing
41:19
your bait you keep watching the water
41:21
temperature or or one you know when to
41:24
downsize one gets it usually what I do
41:27
about 40-45 degrees and I start you know
41:31
downsizing at least at least one of my
41:34
room
41:34
God’s is downsize if I’m fishing on the
41:38
Ohio Ohio we’re only allowed to use two
41:42
rods per person so if i if I’m anchor
41:45
down you know i have one rods got big
41:48
bait on it you know have another Robert
41:50
Scott small bait on and and you keep
42:00
changing over gradually to what’s
42:01
working
42:03
yeah yeah but if I fall upon a pattern
42:06
and I think they’re you know you you
42:09
know a skipjack heads or one of my
42:13
favorite baked the bigger the better
42:15
the one thing I’ve learned to do with
42:19
the skipjack heads is hooked him through
42:22
that bottom the bottom part of your jaw
42:25
and bring it out to the top if you open
42:28
your mouth their mouth opens up its
42:30
gonna warship all the scent everything
42:33
that the head holds its going to just
42:36
wash it out and you know it doesn’t take
42:38
very long but you keep your mouth closed
42:42
then you know it it also kind of streams
42:47
that head if your dragon or if you got
42:52
current you know it’ll sit there waiver
42:54
up and down right yeah i was listening
42:59
stayed up let’s talk about you know if
43:01
he’s dragon you know healed hook is
43:08
heads like that but if he’s if he’s
43:11
going vertical dead stick and he hook
43:13
some the other way is to the shoulder
43:17
yeah and and that’s it’s been a working
43:22
very well for me I started hooking it
43:25
like Malcolm grant riddle uh you know
43:30
going vertical and my hook of Rachel’s
43:32
got a lot better about hooking it there
43:35
uh you know because he was telling me
43:38
that you want that bait to come off that
43:40
hood and you know going in that bottom
43:43
lip and out the top you can’t pull it
43:46
off there he had to hardly
43:47
the blue cats get off are somehow they
43:49
if you you know poor hard but you know
43:54
most of the time and I would miss those
43:55
fish i mean sometimes i would i would
43:57
buy them for you know for a while you
44:00
know 10 15 seconds and all of a sudden
44:02
my bait would come with us i still got
44:04
the bait on the hook and they were just
44:07
hold down the whole time really of the
44:10
circle hook never got over to do what it
44:12
was supposed to do you know he told me
44:14
to hook it different you so when I bite
44:17
down like they do on your hand that baby
44:20
will come off the hook and that hooks in
44:22
their mouth freely and able to get over
44:25
there and do what it needs to do without
44:26
that without the bait getting in the way
44:29
um you know that’s been really been
44:34
working good so dragon you need to put
44:36
it in the in the lips go to be
44:39
aerodynamic in modern be spinning around
44:42
and actin all erratic twisting your
44:46
lineup and everything I see what that
44:48
would really help
44:50
yeah last fall I i had a big blue on and
44:54
I think pink and I were fishing together
44:56
and we you know he used a rod down and
45:03
it then he slammed it and when he
45:06
slammed it you know I grabbed a rod and
45:08
it’s the only bad part about a circle
45:10
hook you know I just real down on him
45:12
you know pull back and I told bank i
45:14
said this is a good fish so the water
45:18
was fairly clear and he kind of popped
45:20
up about 50 yards behind a boat and then
45:23
you saw the big old tale come up out of
45:26
the water and many took a big dive down
45:29
he got probably I’d say 20 feet from
45:32
about is to the point where I could see
45:34
his eyes and I swear this fish have been
45:37
caught before because he took one look
45:40
at me and opened his mouth and a head
45:43
was flat as can be and that he had mango
45:47
you put that hook down inside here bit
45:50
down so hard that it the book had
45:54
embedded in the head he was never hooked
45:57
the whole time
45:59
and he just as soon as you’ve seen me
46:01
and the boat and bank bank had the net
46:04
and it probably wasn’t more than 10 feet
46:06
from me just kind of opened his mouth
46:09
let that bait slide out and he just kind
46:12
of ease back backwards and disappear i
46:16
looked at bank i said that fish been
46:18
caught before he knows what you do
46:20
yeah yeah they’re smart but I’m smarter
46:23
than we think they are
46:25
yeah yeah it’s you know when we was out
46:31
three fishing before the tournament at
46:34
the Leigh super event you know we was
46:39
time some baits on and i was actually
46:41
using some live bait clips to hold my
46:43
bait on my line because we didn’t always
46:46
sticking hooks in them and they were
46:49
actually hello bronze down there then I
46:52
thought they would you know not using
46:56
hooks we were actually real down on them
46:59
and the rod would stay bent you know you
47:05
you got your almost no and you’re moving
47:07
the fish that’s how far i was drilling
47:09
down on and there you know and then they
47:12
would eventually just let go of that
47:13
bait and nose eye socket clips
47:18
yeah one that what you really here yeah
47:21
i used those I put them in the eye
47:23
sockets and if the Bates big enough i
47:25
put in their nostrils short water going
47:30
to users don’t ya the name of them is
47:32
live bait clips is the website www live
47:37
bait clip.com you know they’re really
47:40
good you know you got your hooks not
47:42
into the bay
47:43
if you’re using one hook I still know
47:47
you use a stinger hook about as long as
47:51
the bait is a lot of times and i’ll try
47:54
to put a stinger back around the tail
47:56
behind the dorsal fin somewhere you know
47:59
just right up under the skin not deep at
48:02
all
48:02
yeah I try not to hit the backbone some
48:05
paralyze them but just go far enough
48:08
under the backgound where you know I’m
48:10
not hitting anything that’s really
48:12
on a mess him up and that they’ve been
48:16
living a lot a long time that way the
48:19
other color bridling don’t
48:21
yeah I had that last week
48:25
well yesterday I had a a fish for three
48:28
and a half hours i went to three
48:31
different spots and one of my rods I had
48:36
one of my bluegills rig that way every
48:40
time I would move its ticking down my
48:42
bait tank and he was live in the key the
48:46
whole all day i use that same brand on
48:49
one ride all day you know we and I was
48:52
putting him down some places where i was
48:54
putting him down as far as one place I
48:57
was fishing with 65-foot day by putting
49:00
that date and well and I had to bring
49:04
him up pretty fast one time because the
49:06
game warden come up to check the boat
49:08
and wanted me to real the rods up on on
49:11
this one side and that’s the side that
49:14
had that big deal on it you know so i
49:17
had to really move pretty fast i thought
49:19
for sure that would kill him bringing
49:21
him up that bath but I put it up in the
49:25
33 degree position and the rod holder
49:27
you know where he was likely just a
49:29
couple inches underwater uh and and
49:31
slung the of the rod holder around so it
49:37
is out the way the game board his boat
49:38
and he said there and flipped on top of
49:40
the water the whole time they were
49:41
checking my boat and it didn’t affect
49:44
him at all bring him up that fast wow
49:55
what heels are pretty hard fish there
49:58
oh yeah yeah that yeah they’re really
50:04
tough right now they’re hard to get here
50:08
in Ohio because water cooled down I
50:11
think they move out into deeper waters
50:13
are not after the shallows like it
50:15
normally are
50:16
yeah we was catch them up on a railroad
50:19
bridge one piling out from the bank so
50:24
that the first the first I get bridge
50:29
paddling because we were sketching right
50:31
up against that so it was around you
50:36
know 15 20 foot we were letting the
50:41
bread was just saying real slow without
50:44
weights on
50:45
no never just hit them after they would
50:48
get down there you know five or six foot
50:50
FML number you know sometimes they would
50:53
sink for you know 30 seconds never known
50:56
so they were all different dance down
50:58
the side that Thailand just you know
51:03
feeding on whatever is down through
51:04
there but we’re isn’t yeah we were
51:11
stolen throw net around them and I mean
51:14
we was just getting I mean slab crappies
51:17
you know to two-and-a-half pound
51:21
crappies of 446 at a time we never could
51:27
get any real good bait
51:29
I’m throwing they’re always getting his
51:31
big crappies i always get excited when i
51:34
get them because i think they’re shad
51:37
and 213 mental I start seeing the docs
51:42
up along the backside OH the same way
51:46
but always looking for that black spot
51:50
tracker on her head so they’ll be so we
51:56
can’t use crappie down here duh no and
52:01
the they’re really good bite and the
52:03
states that allow you to use them and I
52:05
really don’t like that because you know
52:07
we can I can catch a mess
52:09
the crappie and that can clean them
52:12
filet them and I can take the waist and
52:15
throw them out in the lake in front of
52:17
my house at the end of the pier in the
52:19
water but i can’t take them fish parts
52:22
and put them on the hook and that’s
52:25
that’s a waste to resource to me you
52:27
know but i can go catch a you know a
52:32
bait tank full of bluegill after i clean
52:35
those crappie and go waste those which I
52:37
couldn’t use the crappie instead but you
52:40
know they’re saying you can use game
52:42
face so it’s just a waste to me and I
52:46
guess there’s no way you could prove
52:48
that you know you use them up from your
52:50
waist or if you just called him and
52:52
robot Manette and cut them up so that’s
52:55
why no waited but you can even have
52:57
fillets and you can you catch because
53:02
there’s no way for they can really tell
53:05
what you’re cruel emily is if you’ve got
53:07
fillets in the boat here they want you
53:11
to have whole fish and you know
53:15
something like shredded here the of
53:18
nearly Henry and Weiss like they’re
53:20
really good crappie lakes you can’t you
53:22
use but three rods for angular why your
53:25
coffee fishing on those two like so
53:27
they’re really picky about their coffee
53:29
and Alabama I mean it’s a huge for wish
53:31
i wish they got like that about catfish
53:34
here and be exciting and I have been I’m
53:40
have a limit on catfish under 34 inches
53:43
you can you catch 4,000 the day you’re
53:46
allowed to keep on those long as you’re
53:47
not over 34 inches
53:49
well
53:55
let me throw a little bit teaser out
54:00
there for a few people guys at RCR
54:06
corners i have come up with a retrofit
54:10
filtering system they can being used on
54:14
your CR boat probably be can be used on
54:18
any boat but the one that I’ve built and
54:22
designed is strictly for that 30-gallon
54:26
front live well that is a on the CR boat
54:33
the 1i built is for my 240 and I know
54:39
the same i believe the same tank is on
54:42
the 220c are so in the next couple weeks
54:49
their bike on tune in to catfish weekly
54:53
and i’ll be going over but in the
54:56
meantime I’ll just give it here is a
55:00
preview
55:01
it’s not very big and that’s what makes
55:04
it nice but this attaches to the lid on
55:11
a CRT boat that’s my teaser if so and I
55:18
I mean I really think that this it’s a
55:22
DIY thing you do it yourself
55:25
everything you can get it lows and out
55:30
of your while wife shower the thing
55:34
though
55:35
Lynn hasn’t noticed that a few other
55:37
things are missing al-sharia
55:46
but in the next couple weeks ago over
55:49
here with AJ won’t take all
55:51
what’s that a lot as a GOP is undergoing
55:58
difficulties of is should be knocked me
56:01
in here and what yall stay tuned for
56:13
catfish weekly in the next couple weeks
56:16
so you’re not going to go over the
56:18
details on this site
56:21
what do you do disappear on us again
56:31
Chuck probably I got noted notifications
56:35
popping out there are these areas
56:37
he’s coming back in and out while huh to
56:44
lose in connecting yeah right there as
56:47
this happen to you I don’t have anything
56:51
closing statements and guys being closed
56:55
wrong up in your dad will see everybody
56:59
mix tonight maybe something a little
57:00
bitty therefore okay yeah I don’t really
57:06
have any closing statements either i
57:08
have you know the little $25 tournament
57:12
coming up on wheeler saturday that that
57:15
they just started throwing together this
57:16
morning
57:17
um you know then we got a winter blues
57:22
coming so get ready New Year’s Eve for
57:25
that but for me that’s going to be the
57:30
next tournament that i’ll be looking
57:32
forward to so i don’t really have any
57:35
closing statements you got any I’ll just
57:39
get my docs tip for the night here where
57:42
in the fall weather transition right now
57:45
the water is starting to get cold and
57:49
this wraps are starting to get slick so
57:53
when you guys get a load and unload your
57:55
boat be real careful when you get down
57:58
on that ramp that algae is on
58:00
there and it is it is really slick it’s
58:03
like ice my tip for the night is this
58:07
time of year carry an extra change of
58:09
clothes shoes in the truck or boat
58:13
because you know you can have an
58:15
accident anytime following that water
58:17
and even though the water is a 60
58:21
degrees
58:22
it takes a little bit longer for
58:24
hypothermia to set in but it still can
58:29
set in so that’s my tip for tonight
58:32
carry extra clothes and shoes and boots
58:36
that’s all I got
58:39
good idea bad idea actually likes and
58:45
everything we have a little little
58:46

59:12
is some hotels man they say buy the
59:14
cheapest package there is and they just
59:17
don’t have any any good connections and
59:20
most time if it rips out to the world
59:23
filled with their head very anything is
59:27
better than nothing at all
59:29
