08:00
hey everybody kevin from palmetto cats
08:02
in this episode we’re going out on a
08:04
guided trip
08:05
with none other than the famous paul
08:07
blackwell official
08:08
guide service and santee cooper i also
08:11
have a special friend with me
08:13
mr gadget say hello to the people how do
08:16
everyone how do
08:17
and there’s mr blackwell hey how you
08:20
doing
08:21
he’s gonna take us out it’s real windy
08:22
today but he’s gonna try to put us on
08:24
some fish today stay tuned
08:31
mark some bait back there and then we
08:33
got diving birds on top of that
08:35
so it don’t matter i cut the fin off the
08:39
big ones for
08:40
sure but
08:43
a lot of times i do the smaller ones too
09:03
how often do you catch them on the
09:05
second hook
09:06
rarely rarely always on the first level
09:09
yeah but in case it’s a short strike
09:12
i want it there to be all right it’s
09:14
safe
09:15
i’ve never used a double hook rig so i’m
09:17
learning something
09:20
hey
09:34
if i didn’t know any better i’d swear
09:37
paul meadows and real efficient
09:41
now when i get one hooked up
10:02
good first fish man good first fish
10:04
absolutely
10:06
it’s a start there he is
10:19
[Music]
10:29
a minute ago but it didn’t really just
10:31
happen
10:41
it is sorry right here
10:58
i know it was almost
11:12
he hit the backflip back that rarely
11:16
ever happened
11:18
[Music]
11:24
there he is fish number two
11:27
all right
11:32
so when do you decide to anchor and when
11:34
do you decide to drag on this lake
11:36
i anchor all the time year-round
11:38
typically early in the morning like now
11:40
i like to anchor when there’s some chop
11:42
on the water like we’ve got now
11:43
i like to anchor because that makes
11:45
current and that makes the fish more
11:47
seem to be moving more and as far as the
11:50
early morning times
11:51
the fish seem to be more active as well
11:54
as at night
11:55
and then as the day progresses i like to
11:57
go drifting as you know
11:59
11 12 o’clock in the day when the
12:01
fishing they’re feeding still but it’s
12:03
not as prominent as it is
12:05
in the mornings so i like to go go get
12:07
them if it’s just flat
12:10
glass water i’ll do a lot of drifting
12:12
because
12:14
the fish don’t seem to be as actively
12:16
moving when you’ve got that
12:17
current per se from the waves
12:20
from the winds so that’s kind of how and
12:23
then on top
12:24
of that i’m a firm believer and let the
12:25
fish show you we’re sitting here
12:26
anchoring if i reeled that rod in
12:29
five or six turns and i got a hit pretty
12:31
quick that tells me them fish want
12:34
something moving a little more than just
12:36
sitting here so i mean that could be
12:38
something that shows you you need to
12:40
start drifting you know there’s a lot of
12:42
different factors but
12:43
that pretty well pretty well sums it up
12:46
and you told me that you only fish
12:48
shallow and there’s a reason for that
12:51
yes so we can get out there in 40 foot
12:53
water and you can catch fish i’m sure of
12:55
it
12:56
people do it every day but you also mark
12:59
a lot of fish that you never catch
13:01
so in the shallows i rarely mark fish
13:04
i mean i see them but you know you don’t
13:07
mark
13:07
quite as many there’s only one reason
13:09
the fish is up in these shallows and
13:10
that’s
13:11
he’s actively feeding out there in that
13:13
25 30
13:14
he might just be hanging out you don’t
13:16
know but a fish here is that
13:18
if he’s here he’s active you got a
13:20
better chance of catching him
13:22
because you know he’s feeding that’s the
13:24
only reason to be here than you do out
13:26
there in that 30 40 foot water
13:29
all right so we couldn’t find the fish
13:31
on the anchor bite so we’re gonna try to
13:33
drag some baits
13:52
all right mr gadget what do you think
13:53
about santee cooper so far
13:55
big water a lot of waves
13:59
but really nice place it looks really
14:01
fishy it looks really fishy
14:16
now i do remember an interview you did
14:19
with caleb of
14:20
about a year ago and you said when you
14:23
got clients out on the boat you like to
14:25
run a lot of line when you’re drifting
14:27
so that when they reel in a big one
14:28
they’re ready to go after
14:30
it let’s see how far that’s down
14:36
see about spoon
14:41
that’s the short
14:44
that’s the short one you think he’s
14:47
going to get us on that one
14:49
yeah it’s like a boat win she’s got to
14:50
keep cranking it in
14:53
but really it’s because we’re fishing
14:56
shallow water and so
14:58
we want to give some space in between
15:00
when the boat passes by the fish
15:02
and when the bait gets to them because
15:04
the boat might spook them am i right on
15:05
that
15:08
generation one big cat fever rod right
15:11
there
15:13
one of the very first white ones i ever
15:15
got and we was fishing
15:17
and the reason i still got this one on
15:19
the boat we had a heck of a day fishing
15:21
we had caught a fish under like 30
15:23
pounds all day he hooked under one and
15:25
we
15:26
gave him a hard time thought like tim
15:27
powder told him cut the line
15:30
ended up being an 83 when it got to the
15:32
boat
15:33
and it was on that rod and i was like
15:36
you know that’s pretty good so
15:38
i’ve kept that rod on the boat just for
15:40
that because
15:42
you know we was all happy about
15:46
the quality fish we had caught and we
15:49
thought we caught something
15:50
dinky and so yeah
15:53
it’s the only white rod i got literally
15:56
oh when i get new rods from
15:57
big cat fever um i give my old ones to
16:00
kids
16:01
i don’t sell them i don’t do anything
16:03
like that i just
16:04
i give them kids that’s awesome there
16:07
happens to be a
16:08
place where kids and parents like fish
16:11
on the bank on my way home every day
16:13
from fishing
16:14
that i had to cross by so
16:18
i just stopped and played the kid out
16:20
there
16:25
here you go and i mean you know and
16:28
some of them kids will never be you know
16:30
no time soon be able to afford one of
16:32
those nice frogs
16:33
you know i mean that’s just the reality
16:35
and i’ve been
16:37
that’s right i’ve been so blessed in
16:38
this industry
16:40
and i’m a firm believer to receive a
16:43
blessing you got to be a blessing and
16:44
that’s just
16:46
one little way i can give back
16:53
the most fish are going to come off the
16:55
flaming boards this shallow anyway
16:57
that’s why i only throw one behind the
17:02
boat
17:04
shallow i mean we’re in three four and
17:06
five foot water back here
17:18
everybody’s going to show us how it’s
17:19
done
17:24
got a long line out on the planer board
17:28
this is dead weight right now
17:44
all right
17:57
a little eater
18:25
what you think about fishing with the
18:26
guide i’m learning a lot
18:29
about time for you to start up your own
18:31
palmetto cats
18:32
outdoors service i’ll leave that
18:40
fall
18:42
there he is great
18:47
those are sure are some nice planer
18:50
boards
18:52
and there’s fish on guys service right
18:54
there number there to call for paul
18:58
spread them all right gadgets in the hot
19:00
seat
19:02
now we’re about to catch a monster don’t
19:04
we hold on
19:05
it goes that’s how it goes
19:08
it ain’t over to it so it ain’t over
19:11
till it’s over we’re back
19:13
to anchoring again same place we started
19:15
off now we’re noticing some things paul
19:17
said there’s a mud line that wasn’t here
19:19
before
19:20
so we’re gonna try it out again on the
19:22
anchor paul what’s different about lake
19:25
moultrie than
19:26
other lakes that people need to know
19:28
before they come here
19:30
well as you can see right now
19:34
the wind is a big factor i mean
19:38
we got two foot swells sometimes threes
19:41
coming through this is a shallow lake
19:43
so it gets rough and then it’s just a
19:46
big bowl
19:47
you have no wind breaks to hide from i
19:49
mean
19:50
like today the you know where we can
19:53
fish that’s limited by what the wind’s
19:54
doing
19:55
there’s stunts out here there’s a lot of
19:57
shallots you need to know where you’re
19:58
going if you start hitting in that six
20:00
foot or less water you might want to
20:01
trim up and slow down that’s pretty well
20:03
probably the two biggest factors
20:06
of this lake versus other bodies in
20:09
south carolina like
20:10
watery greenwood heart will wiley
20:16
[Music]
20:18
murray
20:21
[Music]
20:32
wow
20:43
all right that’s the trip as you can see
20:45
the wind kicked up on us we fished super
20:47
hard
20:48
super hard today but we put some fish in
20:49
the boat and mr gadget is going to take
20:51
