though the ones here that don’t know me
00:06
I’m Stacey Gaston I got my wife over
00:08
here in the end I bet I can’t get her to
00:09
stand up but this is her on the end
00:11
right here her name is doll if you watch
00:14
me on videos sometimes you see her
00:15
fishing with me and trying to pull in
00:18
some big catfish and so uh it’s just
00:21
been on it’s an honor of mine to be here
00:23
today and to be a part of this we’re
00:25
gonna cover some things today and I’m
00:27
gonna try my best in the next 40 minutes
00:29
to cover some stuff and before I close
00:32
I’m gonna need somebody like probably
00:36
9:40 that when I get ready to say hey
00:39
I’m gonna put you in charge say hey
00:41
before you close you had something you
00:42
wanted to tell us about all right so
00:44
make sure that one of y’all does not let
00:47
me forget that off I want to say this if
00:50
y’all don’t know me and don’t keep up
00:52
with me I have I’m a pastor I’ve been
00:54
preaching for 20 years so you may see me
00:56
start to throw some stuff in about the
00:59
Lord because the Lord has reminded me he
01:01
says seek ye first the kingdom of God
01:03
and His righteousness and all these
01:05
other things shall be added to you so
01:08
I’ve learned about putting priorities in
01:10
order and making sure that he’s first
01:12
and foremost in my life and my wife is
01:15
right behind that and my kids are behind
01:17
that right there I know some people
01:18
think well that might not be the right
01:20
order it is for me because my wife and
01:22
my kids probably wouldn’t want to put up
01:24
with me if the Lord Jesus Christ wasn’t
01:26
in my life so I want to thank you all
01:28
today and we’re going to get it started
01:30
some couple things I want to uh to cover
01:33
and I gotta find my glasses
01:36
y’all ever watch me on YouTube and you
01:39
always see me looking for these don’t
01:41
you I can see we’re in the back but I
01:43
can’t see up close I want to share this
01:45
story before I even get started because
01:47
I’m more sure some stories along the way
01:49
and I love flathead catfishing I just
01:52
love catfishing you know catching blues
01:54
and everything but I had a good buddy of
01:56
mine by the name of Jesse Kilpatrick
01:58
used to fish for me all the time and we
02:00
fish show station the river called the
02:02
Alabama River Miller’s farrier reservoir
02:04
and that’s where we efficient we was off
02:07
one day and we was hell ever seen
02:09
they’re all running so shelled Turtles
02:12
you know y’all see what color they are
02:14
if you don’t know I’m to describe
02:15
this to you they have a color resembling
02:18
like the color of a flathead catfish
02:21
y’all notice that and so we have throw
02:24
over there and Jesse’s got his pole in
02:26
the pole starts to ease from boy he
02:28
rares into him I said Jesse you home he
02:30
said no Stacey’s pulling I get to Denton
02:33
that boy and I’m back on the back of the
02:35
boat and if you watch me at all I’m just
02:37
pumping him up come on Jess you bring
02:39
him up here baby and that thing he’s got
02:41
him coming to the boat he’s a lot of
02:43
pressure because just this turtle is
02:45
about 35 pounds
02:47
he’s big he’s got this big around and
02:49
I’m sitting back there and that thing
02:51
comes in sight you know how you want
02:54
about 3 or 4 foot up on the water and
02:56
you barely can’t see it I look around at
02:58
Jess it’s his good gosh almighty his
03:00
head’s that wide and he went back down
03:04
and my heart is pumping him I’m jumping
03:07
and Jesse sitting back I said oh man I’m
03:08
telling you his head was that wide we
03:11
pull him up and he was that wide big old
03:13
flathead Soccio turtle I want to cover
03:19
fortune will be dealing with can’t fish
03:23
in the first thing I want to tell you I
03:25
don’t know I those are probably a lot of
03:27
people here that has got experience
03:29
catching big fish and maybe some here
03:32
that doesn’t I deal with a lot of people
03:33
especially where I’m from they want to
03:35
know how in the world do you catch these
03:38
big fish well I want to say this and
03:41
foremost because I believe this one that
03:42
I believe it’s the most important thing
03:44
that you can possibly do is making sure
03:47
you prepared to catch a big fish what
03:51
good is it to get get one on the hook in
03:54
line because how many of y’all have got
03:55
the story man when I come home I had him
03:58
on had him almost to the boat and it
04:02
broke my line I mean y’all heard that
04:05
how many at times does that ever
04:06
happened to you
04:07
cuz it happened to me year after year
04:10
and I began to learn how and you know
04:12
what I got to do I got to prepare myself
04:14
to catch big fish and if you out here
04:17
catching some small ones you can
04:18
probably with real a man with a little
04:20
bit of nothing I carried a guy off one
04:22
day he wanted to go fishing with me he
04:24
said what I need to bring I said just
04:26
bring yourself bring you something
04:28
eat and drink but I’m furnishing the rod
04:30
and reels he said no my granddaddy left
04:33
me a rod will I want to catch one on it
04:35
I just prefer you to use my stuff no I
04:39
want to use mine and so he had his heart
04:42
set on catching a catfish over twenty or
04:45
thirty pounds we fish all he’s got his
04:48
rod and reel out and I’m telling one guy
04:50
call it free training you don’t know man
04:52
he nailed it he reached and grabbed it I
04:56
don’t even know me that much pressure
04:58
was put on it
04:58
and he broke the line I said how long
05:02
when does your granddad to give you that
05:04
rod and reel he said probably about 10
05:07
years ago I said where’s it been that he
05:09
said has been I timed my shed I actually
05:12
took the line I took it and you could
05:14
just pop it I said are you telling me
05:16
that we spent all day fishing for this
05:18
fish and you was not prepared to catch
05:21
it you know how hard it is to get hooked
05:23
up with one anyhow don’t you and the
05:25
last thing I want to do is get hooked up
05:27
with one and my line break one of the
05:31
key things is making sure that you’ve
05:33
got some good knots and you’ve got some
05:35
good line and probably one of the most
05:37
important things to me is this section
05:40
the line that’s right here they call it
05:44
the leader how many of y’all catch four
05:48
or five fish and you’re in a hurry
05:50
especially when they’re biting it and
05:51
you grab a piece of bait and you chunk
05:53
it back out there and you never check
05:55
there probably if you’ve seen any kind
05:58
of videos you see just pull them flat
06:00
and big catfish here and your hands are
06:02
just tore up and maybe it’s like 80 grit
06:03
sandpaper if this line is coming past
06:06
that fish’s mouth you know what he’s
06:09
gonna do he’s gonna cut it he’s gonna
06:12
he’s gonna Nick it up he’s gonna damage
06:13
it even if you get him in a boat you
06:15
need to always check so if I feel
06:17
something on this line right here I’m
06:19
gonna take my time I’m gonna go back I’m
06:21
gonna cut this leader off I’m gonna make
06:23
sure that this reporter here is good and
06:25
I’m gonna read tie me a new hook and a
06:27
new line on here that’s what I’m gonna
06:29
do now for years we fish with Jay hooks
06:32
my dad did raised me fishing with Jay
06:34
hooks and I also found out that I would
06:37
have my line breaking out you know if
06:39
you ever have been out and you got your
06:41
line
06:42
and I’m pulling on it and pulling on it
06:44
and we have pulled the anchor up trying
06:47
to break it I mean 40 pound mono is
06:50
pretty tough and I’ve done that and you
06:53
hang into a fish and a little bit of
06:54
pressure put on it and your line break
06:57
and you wonder how did that happen I
06:59
just pulled the boat off of anchor how
07:02
did that happen well I will tell you a
07:04
lot of times what happens is that fish
07:07
gets his hook inside of his mouth where
07:10
this leader line has to come pass his
07:12
teeth and if that’s a catfish is 15
07:16
pounds or so and if he shakes his head
07:18
twice you know what it’s gonna do to
07:20
that he’s gonna cut it that’s what he’s
07:22
gonna do I called he didn’t break your
07:24
line he just cut your line and so I went
07:26
with a hook this right here is a mad cat
07:29
er xhd and the circle hooks are designed
07:32
to grab that fish in the corner of his
07:35
mouth or somewhere like that so that
07:37
hook does not get down in his throat and
07:39
you eliminate that possibility of that
07:42
leader line come and pass his mouth and
07:45
I tell people all the time if I get him
07:47
hooked up with his TWC rod and I get him
07:51
whoo I’m like hey guys if the hook set
07:53
good he don’t know unless he hangs me in
07:55
the top he’s coming to the boat take
07:59
your time make sure that you are
08:02
prepared to catch a big fish all right
08:05
because I’m you know what man 2530
08:08
pounder can put some pressure on you
08:10
make sure you prepare to do that here’s
08:13
one of the rig’s that I use now this is
08:15
this is probably my favorite rig for
08:20
flathead fishing now if you’re noticing
08:23
I fished on the Alabama River most of
08:25
the time they are they run they open
08:27
generators up there and that’s how they
08:29
control the flow and they move open run
08:31
to three generators sometimes producing
08:34
a current and so here on this weight I
08:36
have something called a got a three
08:38
ounce no roll I don’t use something
08:41
that’s seven eight ounces I don’t
08:44
particularly like that I will use that
08:46
if this current is really really bad
08:48
I want this right here to like get they
08:52
want it to be able to get my bait to the
08:54
bottom
08:55
but I don’t want to be able to throw out
08:57
your store out there and it just stay in
08:59
one spot I don’t like that I’d like to
09:01
take it I’d like to put me a big old
09:03
brim on it throw it out and I want the
09:05
current to move drag my lid around and
09:08
you know what I say it’s doing it’s
09:10
looking for that little hole to get in
09:12
because I feel like if this lid ever
09:14
pops down inside of a little hole and it
09:16
kind of a cover there and then it kind
09:18
of looked dip it in the water it’s gonna
09:20
settle down and you know where you know
09:22
where that fish is going to be at he’s
09:24
gonna be right where that lid has tried
09:25
to sell that because it’s right there
09:27
looking for the path of least resistance
09:29
so that’s just my preference when I come
09:32
to fishing I do like this right here
09:34
slip lid and if you don’t use something
09:37
like this I do have some secret sliders
09:42
and then if you notice the us I do not
09:44
have my lid that’s what we see connected
09:48
to my line
09:50
you know permanently in one place it’s
09:52
able to slide and that’s there for a
09:54
reason and I’ll tell you about that
09:57
reason in a minute go ahead
10:11
can y’all can y’all hear there’s a
10:14
little bit more room in here if y’all
10:16
can push in is what are you saying and
10:18
maybe make a little bit more room for
10:19
folks because there is some more room in
10:21
here I don’t want you to leave on me
10:25
because you get tired am I making any
10:31
sense so far
10:35
so we’ve shared the start with about the
10:39
tackle and how important the tackle is
10:42
and that right there is pretty simple
10:44
stuff but it’s some stuff so many times
10:46
I am very guilty of it getting in a
10:49
hurry
10:49
throwing back out I don’t feel like
10:52
rereading something and but I’ve learned
10:55
man that I have fished all day the last
10:57
thing that I want to do is get a big one
11:00
hooked up and lose see now I don’t know
11:03
about you it makes me sick you ever had
11:06
your moments when you sit down in the
11:08
boat maybe y’all never had that and I’m
11:15
like man how did he get off this close
11:18
the next thing I want to deal with
11:20
flathead catfishing we got our rigs
11:23
making sure that we got the equipment
11:25
that it takes to get one in the boat and
11:28
I’m going to say the thing is just to
11:30
make sure that your line and stuff
11:32
you’re not just tied correctly and you
11:35
don’t have no phrase in your line now
11:38
the next thing that I am a firm believer
11:40
and this is number two things
11:42
it’s the bait I firmly in this I don’t
11:47
use but three things I either use bring
11:51
them and if I know what that bluegills
11:54
and I don’t use them nothing but live I
11:57
don’t cut them up I use them live that’s
12:00
my preference are you shed but I also
12:03
use them two different ways
12:05
now I know some people are firm
12:08
believers in live bait and I’m a firm
12:11
believer in live bait but I have
12:13
discovered then I probably call it just
12:16
as many flat heads on shed that have
12:20
been that are dead then there that are
12:22
alive now but I will also
12:24
tell you this if you go fishing women
12:26
and we go out a flathead catfishing I’m
12:29
gonna have some RAM in the tank when I
12:31
leave the house but I’m not gonna have
12:33
not one shot on me none
12:36
I got a cast net a guy asked me when we
12:39
went out he says what we’re going to
12:40
fish with I said we don’t get no share
12:42
we won’t be fishing because the way I
12:45
looked at it if we can’t catch fresh air
12:48
– flathead catfish there’s probably no
12:51
need for us to even be here I’ve tried a
12:54
lot of different ways I’ve tried stuff
12:57
that’s been frozen and I’ve caught blue
12:59
cats on them but I’m telling you I’ve
13:01
never caught a flathead on it but with
13:04
this shed I do two things with them I do
13:07
use them especially if I can find on the
13:09
river I fish on if we can get some
13:11
that’s probably six or seven inches long
13:13
then we’re a big ones from where I’m
13:15
from I will take them I’ll put them in
13:17
my live well and I keep water running
13:19
over them all the time I want to keep
13:21
them as lively as I can if I get some of
13:24
them I also catch me some and I keep me
13:27
a bag like an ice bag or a ziploc bag it
13:31
boat
13:32
I keep icing my cougar I will catch some
13:35
of them and as soon as I pick them up I
13:36
put them in that bag and put them down
13:38
in that eyes I do not want them sitting
13:41
there soaking in that ice or in that
13:43
water I’ve been off with guys fishing
13:46
and I’ll say what would they know they’d
13:48
come by and pick me up I want to kill
13:49
you fishing we get out there and we open
13:51
the bait cooler up and it is watered
13:53
down eyes we share that’s been there for
13:55
four hours no slime on them
13:58
nothing you seen them some people call
14:00
him Millie just washed out I don’t want
14:03
that live shed and I would take that
14:07
live shed and most time I hooked him
14:09
right between the bottom lip and the top
14:10
lip or something like that or sometimes
14:13
I’ll take my time and go right through
14:14
his eye socket I want to get in sort of
14:17
that hard that bony structure of his
14:19
head take him out there he will stay
14:22
alive a little bit better especially in
14:24
deep water than that bream will if I’m
14:27
in some deep if I’m in some current I
14:29
would take their brim and hook him
14:31
between the bottle bottom and top real
14:33
the same way I’ve also found out that if
14:36
i hook him in the doors
14:37
man and there’s much current there it’s
14:40
turned around backwards and when I
14:41
really am in he’s dead
14:43
y’all ever seen that so if it’s a little
14:45
bitter if it’s much current hooking for
14:48
the bottom little top lip and fish with
14:50
him that way that’s what he can just
14:51
swim in the current so he’s not talking
14:53
around in the water falling back through
14:55
his gills and I’ve noticed that it kills
14:57
him that way
14:58
now with the ones that are dead I take
15:01
them and I’m telling you I have had good
15:03
success with this I take that bog shad
15:06
and some of y’all have fillet Tobias or
15:09
crappie or something like that I take my
15:12
book Shann I take my knife and lay out
15:15
his tail and I go right up his backbone
15:17
all the way back to his deal plate and I
15:20
just taken the knife out you’ve exposed
15:22
the belly but it’s also let that extra
15:26
side there you’ll sit down and flapping
15:28
the current out to me I just think it
15:32
gives a little bit of action when you
15:34
sit incurrent and that old piece of meat
15:37
sitting out flapping plus I feel like I
15:39
got all them guts going down through
15:40
there you know and I feel confident if I
15:44
have fresh shed and if I have me some
15:46
live bream before the days over we’re
15:49
gonna put a hit in the back and
15:51
hopefully we’re gonna put one in our
15:52
30-plus pounds because catching one over
15:54
30 pounds sometimes can be a pretty good
15:57
task and when you get a hold to one like
15:59
that it can be fun cuz then boys will
16:02
pull won’t they I mean y’all ever cut a
16:05
flathead I mean you ever caught one over
16:08
30 pounds they I mean they put me yeah
16:11
they’ll put the smackdown on it you know
16:12
me they hit it boy and you grab it and
16:15
man I’m telling you now I fish with them
16:17
like this I will also use another rig
16:20
that if I am up in water that’s probably
16:23
less than 20 foot deep
16:26
I will slow in some rocks I will slow
16:30
drift and I just suspend some rigs and I
16:33
also spin them just like I have this one
16:35
set up over here and I just want to drop
16:39
it then I’ll have live briam and I would
16:42
take them and if you’ll notice here on
16:47
this rig here now this right here is
16:49
stationary and how you
16:50
use that my my hooking line does not
16:53
slide through this y’all see the
16:55
difference and I’ll hook the PI meson
16:56
suspend drill I will take this and I
16:59
will hook sometimes five six ounces on
17:04
here with this snap I can put as many in
17:06
there as I need to so if I needed 10
17:09
ounces or 11 ounces I want to be able to
17:11
hold that bait straight down
17:14
I don’t irritate Smee to see my bait
17:17
starting to slide backwards because I’m
17:20
like I put it on the bottom I felt this
17:22
lid when it hit the bottom and I know
17:26
that my leader line is so I’m gonna reel
17:28
it up pick it up and put it in a rod
17:30
holder and so I’m thinking to myself
17:32
it’s probably about 2 foot off the
17:34
bottom and that little brim just sitting
17:36
there just fluttering the whole time and
17:38
you easing down through there and all of
17:40
us see that till start to load up you
17:44
know what that is don’t you but that
17:47
right there is a 2 privat that’s a
17:49
onliest way I’ll fish for him I incur
17:53
and I do do some slow drifting in some
17:56
shallower water and I carried a guy out
18:00
not long ago we was out there and we
18:02
were sitting there fishing and when we
18:03
was we was down the river anchored up in
18:06
40 foot of water and we were sitting
18:08
there talking and carry on a hoe and we
18:11
moved up in some water that was around
18:12
12 to 15-foot deep lot of rocks and I
18:17
quit talking whether my wife can believe
18:20
that or not I stopped and that was with
18:25
me because he’s probably he’s used to me
18:26
firstly he’s we sit over and he says
18:28
what’s wrong with you he said I said
18:31
what nothing’s wrong
18:32
he said well you ain’t talking near as
18:34
much as you was I said we in 1215 foot
18:37
of water I said them fishes right up
18:40
under us
18:41
now we’ve gone over the top of them said
18:43
do not bang your feet on the bottom of
18:45
this boat say very little bit and don’t
18:48
move none because I’m going to tell you
18:50
I don’t know if you know 10 or 12 15
18:52
foot it’s really not that deep now I
18:55
don’t want to jump out the boat and see
18:56
how deep it is but I’m telling you it’s
18:58
really not that deep
18:59
and my foot yes he’s right up under us
19:02
these fish all right up under us
19:03
and all the times people never look at
19:06
this they jump they walking around the
19:07
boat and if you’re the old woman um boat
19:09
like I had beaten around you’re making
19:11
noise you’re sitting there talking and
19:13
and me whooping and hollering I said
19:16
hold we got to stop this for right now
19:17
we’ll go back when we hook up with one
19:19
but we need to be really really quiet
19:21
because you know if anybody haunts
19:23
anybody’s after wild game or something
19:25
is what is the thing you want to be able
19:28
to sneak up on him is that not what you
19:31
want to do you want to be able to just
19:33
sort of ease and I worry is that now you
19:35
own his territory you know you don’t go
19:37
turkey hunting and you don’t go deer
19:39
hunting with a cowbell to them you know
19:41
hey we here to catch you we’re here to
19:43
kill you do you know what’s gonna happen
19:45
they’re not used to you being there and
19:48
the first thing they’re gonna do man
19:49
they’ve gone so we want to be really
19:51
really quiet especially when we get into
19:53
shallow water I have a bad habit I want
19:56
to listen to the radio but when I get
19:57
serious about fishing I even cut it off
20:00
I don’t know if they can hear it but I’m
20:02
thinking I don’t want to give them a
20:03
choice on this I don’t really want them
20:06
to know that I’m here
20:07
once I get set up all right so live
20:10
breathe and shed either live or cut and
20:14
I don’t use them it’s cut pieces I use
20:16
them as a whole shed just sort of sliced
20:19
up the side and just sit there and let
20:22
it flop just let it go in the current
20:24
all right now the next thing there’s a
20:27
couple things that I’m looking for me
20:30
and my wife was all we like to go bream
20:32
fishing every year around April end of
20:35
April with you it’s a trip up and man we
20:38
go after them big old bream like that
20:40
and so we over here I don’t never go
20:43
fishing that ain’t got my rods and reels
20:45
with me we come out of a little old
20:47
Creek we’re sitting there and caught
20:49
some bream balm I live where we probably
20:51
got 50 or 60 in it and on the side the
20:53
bank there was our old wood yard that
20:55
was that where they loaded stuff and
20:57
they had come in and I had brought some
20:59
slabs of concrete and dumped them all as
21:02
erosion control as I come out and I seen
21:05
that concrete there Don said what’s you
21:08
fixing to do I set my anchor down right
21:10
here and we’re gonna catch this flathead
21:12
that’s in them holes right there because
21:14
if you ever look when you see Don
21:16
Bank you start seeing that concrete
21:18
that’s laid up instead
21:20
can you see all them hoses in there you
21:22
know what I can’t fish it done got
21:24
dumped in one oh that’s where he’s that
21:27
and sure enough we pulled up there and
21:29
it wasn’t but it wasn’t but a few
21:31
minutes and we pulled one out of there I
21:33
like to look for something like that
21:35
boulders you know some big rocks and
21:37
stuff I found out then that then
21:39
flatheads love to hang around back one
21:42
of my favorite places to fish is when
21:45
I’m going somewhere new and I’m for
21:47
something I goldmine avionics or well
21:51
the chart you can get on it on your
21:52
computer and begin to look around and
21:54
I’m looking for some specific things I
21:57
love the mouth of creeks I’m addicted to
22:01
them things creeks and sloughs if you
22:07
see where somebody is up in a creek or
22:09
somebody is in some backwater
22:11
where I come from we call them sloughs
22:13
is that what y’all call them and I see a
22:15
lot of people that’s in these things
22:17
that’s catching crappie and catching
22:20
brim
22:20
I might this is the place we needed
22:23
Flathead fishing cuz you know what
22:25
flathead eat they eat crappie and they
22:29
eat bream I will watch as I’m going up
22:31
and down the river if I come fisherman
22:35
and he is over our crappie fishing he’s
22:37
been sitting there for to two or three
22:39
hours well I’m going to tell you let me
22:41
just tell you a secret
22:42
he ain’t sitting in one spot for nothing
22:45
for two or three hours
22:46
you know why he’s there the possibility
22:48
him there he’s catching some fish there
22:50
every time you come by he’s in that
22:52
always when I go by and I look at him I
22:55
reach up on my graph and I just mark a
22:57
waypoint I’m like there’s a top over
23:00
there up on that water somewhere I come
23:02
back later and check this when he’s gone
23:04
and you know what I’m gonna do I’m gonna
23:06
fish that spot because you know why
23:09
because if there’s a top there and
23:11
there’s crappie in it I promise you
23:13
they’re the Flathead he’s not from it
23:16
you know as well as I do
23:18
when it comes suppertime I can find you
23:20
Cana I don’t know if I can find you but
23:23
you can find me when mama gets ready to
23:27
supper cooked I told him one time daddy
23:28
called me says suppers
23:30
we’ll be ready about five o’clock are
23:32
you gonna be able to be here we’re weak
23:34
momma’s got a big old evil hose about
23:37
eight people you know and I got my spot
23:39
on it and that is on the other hands
23:42
what we always said I told daddy I said
23:44
daddy when you don’t look at the other
23:46
in the table I’ll be there
23:49
Mama’s cooking collard greens and she’s
23:51
got some hog neck in now get in there
23:54
and we’re gonna have us some dressing I
23:57
said I’ll be there
23:58
why because I’m gonna be there when it’s
24:00
feeding time and I’m gonna tell you the
24:03
reason that flathead is in a certain
24:04
place why is because there’s a food
24:07
source that is there so I’m looking for
24:10
them places like that if I can find a
24:12
major Creek and a lot of times where
24:14
something is like 15 or 12 foot deep
24:17
that goes up into a slough and it may go
24:18
about getting in there and it may be 10
24:21
it may be 10-foot a lot of brims in
24:25
there blood up by our bass a lot of
24:27
crappie I don’t go up in that Slough and
24:29
fish I don’t fish up in there
24:30
a lot of times then things will come out
24:32
and dump into the river
24:34
and when they dump in it comes in and
24:36
just comes up on a Ledge I don’t know if
24:39
there’s anything to this but somehow
24:40
another I got this in my mind that he
24:43
stages out here if he eats in that have
24:47
you ever thought about that I’m like he
24:49
leaves out of here eats in there and so
24:53
I get out there and I’ve looked on these
24:56
ledges that let lovers to come out of
24:59
ten life is come out of five full of
25:01
water and when it comes that you’re sort
25:03
of drop salt and may drop into 35-foot
25:05
if you ever look right there on that
25:07
edge on that ledge you’re gonna start to
25:09
see some fish in there I’m looking for a
25:12
spot like that another thing that I look
25:15
for is driving down the river
25:18
I’m it have y’all ever seen when you’re
25:20
going down the river and you see an
25:21
inset in the bank currents flowing and
25:24
all of a sudden you see it where it hits
25:26
a pocket and it begins to cause a swirl
25:29
a reverse flow I’m like we need to fish
25:32
this spot right here I always looked at
25:35
that because I’m like something has
25:36
happened here to change the the course
25:39
of the water now a fish is doing one
25:43
thing he’s eating
25:43
to surviving that’s what he does so he’s
25:46
doing one thing he needs to conserve
25:48
energy and he needs to eat that’s what
25:51
he’s after and so I’m looking for places
25:53
that he can get behind that he ain’t
25:55
gotta sit there and swim all day to try
25:57
to waste all of his energy I’m looking
25:59
for little places that he can get over
26:00
here and yet be an ambush spot so if
26:03
there’s a little indention in the bank a
26:05
little hole that’s in sent in and set
26:08
into that Bank I’m looking for things
26:10
like that
26:10
and all the times I will go past it and
26:13
anchor up so I can fish right off in
26:15
that hole right there
26:16
now the next thing that I do that’s
26:18
there’s two spots the mouth of creeks
26:20
and get on that ledge and mouth the
26:22
sloughs and going that ledge look for
26:24
little pockets and oh well I got a
26:27
couple more spots yeah y’all ever seen
26:29
them crazy South Alabama hell I’m from
26:32
South Alabama can’t you hopefully by now
26:35
hello
26:35
we helped some you coming into Alabama
26:37
River we have some clay banks and you
26:41
know I for some reason in my mind when I
26:44
see that clay bank I have identified
26:46
that every time I fish a clay bank was
26:49
it was intentionally or attentionally
26:51
that I called flatheads bound but I also
26:55
know to see us you riding down the road
26:57
and you see clay banks what do you see
26:59
you gonna see some holes in where some
27:01
little incense in it I’m tell you if you
27:04
see a clay bank a lot of times a clay
27:07
Bank is formed because the trees have it
27:10
the washed over there it’s gonna cause a
27:11
little bit of structure to be there but
27:14
it also I believe that clay Bank has got
27:16
some holes stuff that are there I love
27:18
to fish a spot like that and so if I see
27:21
a clay Bank we’re gonna fish it the
27:23
mouth of a creek or mouth of a slough
27:25
I’m gonna fish it if we see some
27:29
structure here we’re gonna fish it now
27:31
one of the things that use it that I’ve
27:34
learned over the years now my dad is a
27:36
little bit old-fashioned he tells me I’m
27:39
cheating all the time and so I’ve got I
27:42
got my electronics and I’ll put some
27:46
pictures on Facebook the other day I
27:48
don’t know if y’all seen it but I run a
27:49
hummingbird I run a humming
27:51
I run a hummingbird 12 both of them have
27:54
mega when I’m he’s gotta make a push on
27:56
it and I actually got a picture of a
28:00
Spoonbill cat Spoonbill on that I don’t
28:03
know if y’all seen that but you can see
28:04
them just as good and so I come home I
28:06
seize it
28:08
sawing that right there is pure cheating
28:10
I said what that everybody else is using
28:13
in my mind as well you so he said what
28:17
do you do just drop your hook over and
28:19
snatch him up I said no it ain’t that
28:20
easy now I wish it was but it has made
28:26
me I do not fish in a top I don’t I
28:30
don’t do it and this is the reason why
28:33
now I will fish around that top and I
28:35
know some people that pull up man I have
28:37
seen them they will pull up they will
28:39
spotlight and have the back of that boat
28:41
sitting right at the back of a log jam
28:43
with the rods just right off in it and
28:45
every time you see him you know what
28:47
they tell me
28:48
man we hung a big one today but we
28:50
couldn’t get him out of there and this
28:53
is my mindset I use my side imaging
28:56
anybody familiar with side imaging let
28:59
me tell you that what I use this for
29:02
them tops is that and I will go up
29:04
through there and if I’m looking at
29:06
talks on my side imaging and I’m seeing
29:08
them on both sides of the boat I know
29:10
they everywhere
29:11
I keep moving my pulled out a little bit
29:13
and all I want to do is find them tops
29:15
it’s on my right-hand side and none on
29:18
my left
29:19
you know what that lets me know I’m
29:21
right here at it end of them you saw him
29:24
coming from I’m right out here at the
29:26
end of them and so I will pull my boat
29:28
up and I will try to anchor out here on
29:31
the end of this talk and my ideology is
29:35
I’m not going to go in that top after
29:37
him I’m hoping I can entice him to come
29:41
out here and grab my bait in this clean
29:44
water because I feel like if I get him
29:46
hooked up out here we’re gonna bring
29:48
into the boat
29:49
you don’t mean does that make sense and
29:51
so it eliminates me just having my bait
29:54
right there in the top and everything
29:55
I’ve got being tangled up now I’ll tell
29:57
you nearly they don’t get hung up
29:59
because I get hung up a lot but I’m
30:01
trying to find that little spot they get
30:03
that bait right out
30:04
on the edge of it and maybe pull him out
30:06
of that top right there I mention one
30:11
more thing about bait I didn’t know this
30:14
– a couple of years ago matter of fact
30:16
last year I was all trying to get some
30:19
shed and I was catching something just
30:21
once in a blue moon we would catch
30:24
something I didn’t have a clue it was
30:26
and I told somebody on Facebook I had
30:29
one and I’m telling you if you see me
30:31
fishing with live bait I have fish with
30:33
some stuff this big it don’t get too big
30:36
I mean man listen twelve inches long
30:39
hooking right through the middle of the
30:40
live I was over there buddy of mine says
30:42
what you got I said look what I got from
30:44
me he says you’ll never catch anything
30:46
on that I said you’d be surprised what I
30:48
can tell you what else you’ll be
30:49
surprised you’ll be surprised how small
30:51
a fish our kid with that big of a bait
30:55
I took a bait this big and catch a 15
30:57
pounder I’m telling you ever seen him
30:59
play heads mouth 15 pounder man you got
31:02
a mouth that big on him they put it I
31:05
said you ever get one of these I mean
31:07
they’re like gold to me I would bomb
31:09
today if I knew where to buy oh man
31:11
and so I put this last I don’t know what
31:12
they are but if you got one of these
31:14
things hook em on your line I’m telling
31:16
you a flathead fish came resisting and a
31:19
guy who responded bang said that is a
31:20
quilt back sucker I hope you ever seen
31:24
one of them and I thought then I’ve been
31:26
on the internet looking to somebody’s –
31:28
sale live will buy suckers to help me
31:32
take of them and put him on her I need I
31:38
need me a spot to raise them things in
31:41
tell you get something like that right
31:44
there
31:44
and sometimes we was down in Florida
31:47
and there was one he’s one of these
31:48
incidents that my wife was right about
31:51
yes don’t y’all tell her I said that all
31:53
right but I preached this on oh my oh my
31:57
oh my videos and stuff I get to a big
32:00
fish like this I will use two hooks I
32:03
will hook one three sleep and I will use
32:05
another hook to put back there in his
32:07
back because I have seen that then I
32:10
don’t know just what they’re doing but
32:12
in my mind he’s coming up grabbing that
32:14
bait starting to pull it off
32:17
then he will pull your rod over like
32:20
this and you would think you got him
32:22
I’ve seen it where they put some
32:24
pressure on it
32:25
and you pick it up and all of a sudden
32:26
now nothing
32:28
he’s got the back of that bait we was
32:31
down in Florida we had a we had someone
32:33
at this big if we’re gonna pull us a big
32:36
one out and sure enough we was there and
32:38
as we was there man
32:40
that old raw tip kept loading up and it
32:43
loaded and doubled over and when it did
32:46
I tied into it
32:47
got him all the way to the boat I’m done
32:52
got the net I’m sitting there ready my
32:54
heart is just beating like this right
32:56
here probably always don’t do that
32:58
you know man but mine does and I’m
33:01
sitting in I’m just waiting the scene
33:03
and all of a sudden man the Lord Ryan’s
33:06
boat and it just comes loose that was
33:09
one of them times and I’m sitting down I
33:14
got my hand on my head and my wife says
33:18
you should have put two hooks on it she
33:27
says even I’ve watched your videos so
33:34
every time I get enough reads but they
33:37
don’t always fish with the two hook
33:38
system I think I reach in and grab one
33:41
of them big ones out unhook him through
33:42
the lip and I hear her voice even I
33:45
watched your videos I’m like we’ll take
33:48
Andrea tie this and we’ll put us two
33:50
hooks on here because I don’t want to
33:52
have the opportunity to having a 30-plus
33:56
flathead on my hook and him not having
34:00
in his mouth so I feel like if he’d come
34:02
and grab the back of it and he started
34:04
to pull off with it I’ve got that hook
34:06
in the back and bound I’m like you
34:09
didn’t know that was there did you let
34:12
me share one other thing y’all still
34:16
with me don’t let me bore you all right
34:19
now this is another thing but and some
34:22
on the house and one of the things that
34:24
I want to do I love catching big fish
34:28
but I want you just
34:30
you catch on if you wanted to get your
34:32
kids involved if you want to get all
34:35
involved in catfishing man you want to
34:37
catch big fish and you catching them on
34:40
rod and reel I mean that right there is
34:42
adrenaline rush then I still have not
34:45
got over I’m addicted to watching the
34:48
end of that pole load up I’m out you sit
34:50
there all day and just watch the
34:52
internet pole load up I’m like that’s
34:53
what I’m here for
34:54
unless I’ve been sitting out all day
34:57
y’all probably don’t do this but I do
34:58
you sit there all day and you preach
35:02
this and you teach this don’t touch that
35:04
rod let him let him load it up let him
35:08
pull it down and you fish all day long
35:11
and your rod tip it look just like that
35:13
right there all day and if you’ve been
35:16
out eight hours fishing and all of a
35:18
sudden you see it go and I go oh I get
35:24
up out of my seat and he loads up on it
35:29
a little bit more and pulls it down
35:31
right there and one of the things I
35:33
constantly teach is somebody’s in the
35:35
book and I might do not touch it and
35:39
what do I do after sitting a two-hour
35:41
load my gosh I ain’t taking no more
35:45
chances with you I’m grabbing it and I’m
35:49
setting the hook and you and he’s not
35:53
there I’m right well I’ve waited eight
35:55
hours I got too excited and I’ll let him
35:58
get away now there were some guys around
36:02
the house had never caught big fish and
36:05
he said Stacey we want to know how to
36:07
catch him like how do we catch these big
36:09
ones and this is what he time I said go
36:10
get you some wine brim just what I’ve
36:12
told you I said make sure you got you
36:14
some equipment to hold something this
36:17
bear flathead man will pull and he’s
36:19
gonna pull you down some stuff just hang
36:20
get some out of something and every time
36:23
he would come back he says well every
36:25
time we get over there he said Stacey
36:26
they just get my rod and they pulled
36:29
over a little bit and daddy grabs it and
36:31
he sets the hook and we missed them
36:33
he said all there is those little ones
36:36
over there I know now I’ve seen this on
36:40
Facebook
36:41
there was somebody new video or seminar
36:44
somebody asked the Pacific question does
36:47
in flatheads every bite real funny and I
36:50
want to the guy that lands he said
36:52
no let your shoes just slam it down I’m
36:53
like no no no no where I’m from they
36:56
don’t I haven’t seen them do this right
36:58
here and I have watch the flat I’m
37:00
talking about something thirty or forty
37:02
pounds this is why I broke this rod with
37:05
me have you ever seen it start to load
37:08
up and pull right there and stop and
37:12
he’s back up and he’s it back down and
37:17
he’s sitting down is just holding that
37:19
and I’m thinking to myself you need to
37:21
hurry up I’m gonna snatch it out of your
37:23
mouth and he eases back down a little
37:25
bit I’ve had it sit right there and hold
37:27
and let back up most people will grab it
37:31
and think there’s a little one messing
37:33
with it I’m tell you don’t touch it if
37:36
you can fight your willpower off don’t
37:39
touch it
37:41
y’all see what my problem’s that don’t
37:43
you maybe I need more wheel cuz eight
37:48
hours of him not doing nothing to it
37:49
I get do gonna let see don’t let don’t
37:53
touch that thing I like to get it and
37:55
when it starts doing that I’m like I got
37:57
him now
37:58
but I have a sit there as much as 15 or
38:01
20 minutes and see him sit there
38:03
pull it over let it back up boarding the
38:07
boat with me said he’s just a little
38:09
bitty when I said no I said a little bit
38:11
when stepside does that’s right here to
38:13
it all the time
38:13
I said if they ever go to pull it over
38:16
like this and hold and I said he’s not
38:17
no little bitty one we got ourselves
38:20
something just hang on if you got the
38:21
patience here we’re going to be able to
38:24
catch this fish so then little details
38:27
right there and this guy come back he
38:30
was a student of mine in my welding
38:31
class he coming out every week picked my
38:34
mind went gave him some Roger sent me a
38:38
picture he’s got one put up over the
38:40
side of the boat he says me and my daddy
38:42
got him he was 40 pounds I said what’d
38:44
you do he said I didn’t touch that rod
38:46
to the tilt was in the water I said my
38:49
favorite said every guy who said is I
38:51
said don’t miss it
38:52
don’t touch it too it goes for eyes deep
38:54
[Laughter]
38:58
then right there is just some keys
39:00
that’s going to be able to increase your
39:03
hookup rate and catching some big fish
39:07
now I’m gonna give you a chance to
39:08
answer the question but we’ll do one
39:10
more thing cuz also I’m going on time I
39:13
know and my wife asked me she said can
39:16
you speak for two hours and yes she
39:17
looked at me she even asked there was
39:22
there were some guys that’s fishing
39:24
there with me it lives out my
39:26
neighborhood and one of the things they
39:28
want to do they want to catch some
39:29
bigger fishes and Stacy said the biggest
39:31
thing we’ve ever caught is 10 or 12
39:33
pounds and you know what I told them I
39:36
said next time you go
39:39
don’t you fish where you been fishing go
39:43
somewhere else and then they don’t dare
39:45
tell me uncle we we’re creatures of
39:47
habit I mean you know that we want to
39:51
fish for what granddaddy fished that and
39:54
my daddy fish there and he taught me how
39:56
to fish there and we’ve been that we did
39:58
catch him our years ago but what you
40:01
don’t understand is flooded and things
40:03
have filled in and things have changed
40:04
and they no longer that you’ve been
40:07
fishing over the last two years I had
40:09
called nothing I told this guy he said
40:11
all we catches him alone squealers he
40:14
said Stacy I want to catch one a big one
40:17
1020 pounds
40:18
I said well the next time you go you go
40:21
the opposite direction of where you’ve
40:23
been going he said we’re not here to go
40:26
I said just don’t go where you’ve been
40:27
going I said wherever you think that
40:30
they ain’t try that just go try
40:33
something different
40:35
because for years it pulled up we always
40:40
fish in the same boat and then I’m
40:42
telling you there was some there’s a lot
40:43
of good fishermen out there you never
40:45
see of them you never hear about them
40:47
there are old man that’s I can’t say
40:49
that my dad is I get mad at me we
40:52
pretend he won’t see their old man
40:54
that’s about 75 years old and they come
40:57
in and they always got them you ever
41:00
seen that you don’t hear about them on
41:03
Facebook you don’t see I buy them in
41:04
social media you don’t know that but
41:07
every time they come in
41:08
and the old man below the house he
41:10
always dipped snuff he was a level ahead
41:13
and spell I ever seen him alive
41:15
cuz just as much snuff round the one
41:17
sided it did the other but he’d always
41:20
come in he had that old dental Suites
41:22
know that stuff that looks like powder I
41:25
went all fishing winning one time I told
41:27
mr. Carson whatever you do he was in a
41:29
stick steer boat was going on the river
41:31
said don’t you spit and don’t you try to
41:33
take a dip of that mess as we going in
41:35
this river
41:35
that’s tough done got all up in my eyes
41:39
he was a white perch fisherman everybody
41:42
else around the house going Carson
41:45
coming in thumb let me tell you what I
41:46
got
41:47
look at this cool box but I’m telling
41:49
him but he’d have slabs up in there and
41:51
I got to watching these older guys
41:53
because there was an older guy Jimmy P
41:56
B’s a mine where I live at hey always
41:58
catching these catfish and you know you
42:01
young boy and you ain’t you ain’t paying
42:03
them for old kitchen and all of a sudden
42:06
you know I’m like I’d like to catch
42:07
something like they catching them I
42:08
notice he fishing the same pots I’m
42:11
fishing in maybe I need just change the
42:14
way I’m fishing and start fishing like
42:16
he’s fishing I notice I’m over here tied
42:19
up in a top over here and he’s out there
42:21
in the river on that ledge maybe I need
42:23
to move out there once things like that
42:26
right there I promise you it will
42:28
improve your hookup rate it’s going to
42:30
improve the quality of fish that you’re
42:33
catching anybody got any questions
42:47
with a lot more hook up when I let that
42:51
fish load that rod up
42:53
yes I do and let let him let’s pull it
42:59
on down and I’m tell you it was a habit
43:01
I had to break because we grew up
43:03
fishing with hooks and you know what my
43:05
dad would always say Shawn across his
43:07
eyes that’s what he would tell him I
43:10
don’t Rob it – this right here
43:11
get in your hand saw him get in your
43:13
hand next time he pulls it down try to
43:14
cross his eyes
43:15
we broke boat seats well I’m telling you
43:22
that rod go down I’m and you told me to
43:26
get everything I got that old plastic
43:29
boat see just wouldn’t prepare for this
43:33
so if your hookup rate is going to
43:37
improve when you let him load that rod
43:41
up and let him do that right there any
43:43
more questions I know I don’t I don’t
43:49
use go I’m not saying that I’m not no
43:51
good he asked do I use goldfish or bait
43:54
don’t I just bring quite a brim bluegill
44:01
shed and then what I tell you earlier
44:04
them quill back suckers
44:12
I use the same thing that I used for
44:15
this room right here I snail both of
44:19
them as a matter of fact when I get
44:21
through we’ll get a few minutes I will
44:23
show you just how to the ice nail both
44:26
hooks in the same line I take the first
44:29
hook and I’ll hook it in the lip and I
44:32
run the next one back and I put it on
44:33
his back and I’ll hook it in where it
44:35
sticks sort of straight up off of his
44:38
back right behind the dorsal fin is
44:40
sticking up so if he comes up and gets
44:42
the back end he’s getting that hook yeah
44:51
yes i hook them two different ways i
44:54
hook him through the lips if there’s a
44:56
offensive current there my preference is
44:59
to hook him behind the dorsal fin well
45:02
he can sit there he likes the flutter
45:04
you ever seen them they’ll be swimming
45:05
sideways but if we get into some current
45:08
that could if his current strong enough
45:10
it won’t pull him around and then it
45:13
wants to kill him
45:14
that that water is going to come back
45:15
through his deals and it wants to kill
45:17
him
45:17
so if you get into some little bits
45:19
whipper bring him take him and look him
45:23
through the lip so he can sit there and
45:24
swim in the current a little bit easier
45:26
on him Lots no sir
45:31
I don’t use no kind of lights the matter
45:33
of fact if I’m out fishing I’m just a
45:36
little bit old school I really don’t
45:38
want him to even know that I’m there oh
45:41
all the lights up on my boat and once I
45:44
come to a place if I fish it night I
45:47
don’t like to move a lot that’s just me
45:48
preference Lee you may not have a
45:50
problem with it but I like to find me
45:52
about three or four places and I’m like
45:54
we’re going to just fish these spots
45:56
tonight and I want to anchor up on once
45:58
we get anchored up I might we’re gonna
46:00
sit here for two hours or hour and a
46:03
half or two hours something like that
46:05
and I will turn actually all the lights
46:07
hoping my boat just enough this I got
46:09
some points up on my rod so I can see
46:12
them get leaves a little glow there but
46:13
I’m like I don’t want him looking up and
46:15
knowing that looks like a baseball field
46:18
lit up
46:22
I don’t use a beat let me share this
46:25
with you oh this is this is one of my
46:27
little tricks so if I don’t use a bead
46:31
if you go by the parts house you can
46:34
purchase something called vacuum hose
46:39
y’all got me and you can buy the stuff
46:42
in 10-foot section and buy the one that
46:44
has the littlest hole in it and I just
46:46
take them and bring them to the house
46:48
and cut them about one-inch sections the
46:51
reason I do this this is my thoughts if
46:54
this hood and I know people talking
46:56
about well I put a glass bead on it
46:58
well that glass bead is just as hard as
47:01
that lid so I don’t see no difference in
47:04
that glass bead beating against them I
47:05
not then that led beating against it I
47:07
don’t use that so I put this on there
47:10
and it is it’s just a cushion it rides
47:14
right down the edge of that swivel
47:16
nothing’s on my Knock my knot is
47:19
actually up inside or back and nothing
47:23
gets to my not that way back in hose you
47:27
can find it at and you know a lot of
47:29
time there’s some people around here
47:30
that sell what they call bumper a little
47:34
bit of things but get you some of there
47:36
because you can buy a whole roll over
47:37
10-foot for like three dollars and cut
47:40
them in one-inch sections and put them
47:42
on there and I’m telling you have more
47:44
than you fish within a year anybody else
47:52
but yes sir
47:54
what pound test do I use on my reel
47:57
itself I have 40 pound mono on my leader
48:01
I’ve got 50 and the reason why though
48:04
some people think well I’ve got it
48:07
because I won’t this line a little bit
48:08
thicker that is the reason I’ve got that
48:11
I know forty pounds on this leader would
48:13
hold a big fish but I’m looking for that
48:16
diameter that’s the way if it does get
48:19
nicked some my minds thinking well I got
48:22
a little bit more beat there that he can
48:24
Nick it and not cut it all the way in
48:26
half you said coming from so that’s what
48:29
I use I dog forty and fifty forty and
48:34
fifty my lines were lined with forty
48:36
more of that leader there’s fifty it’s
48:44
gonna have to be something about this
48:47
nature if it’s just a big brim I don’t
48:50
use I just use that one hook but when I
48:52
get into something like them while I
48:53
call them quill back suckers where they
48:55
some about ten to twelve inches long
48:58
that’s when I go to that double hook
49:00
vein one mono the brand made made model
49:09
I got I got some slime line and I used
49:13
some line that Bass Pro Shop sales you
49:16
can find it over there
49:17
let’s call old short angler I’m always
49:21
looking for a little bargains and always
49:23
short angler is in Bass Pro Shop and you
49:26
can buy like 700 and something yards of
49:28
it for fourteen bucks or something or
49:31
you slam line I used both of them right
49:34
there my leader on this right here is
49:36
fifty pound
49:37
slam line is what I got on here and I
49:39
found that both of them is sort of good
49:42
abrasion resistance you know I’d rather
49:45
have something good raishin is
49:47
resistance then real real soft type
49:49
stuff I’m looking for something that’s
49:51
going to be able to handle some Nicks
49:55
then right there is our yeah then right
49:58
there is our Abu Garcia 6500 C threes
50:03
this right here is a tangling with
50:05
catfish extreme rod that I fish with and
50:08
I let me cover one more thing about run
50:12
out of time
50:20
I do it’s about timing to wrap up here
50:22
let me do this before I do this there
50:25
was a reason I use a hook a lid that
50:28
slides the same reason that you said
50:33
that catfish put that rod over and let
50:35
it bite
50:36
I don’t want him I feel like if my hook
50:40
my latest on the bottom and if it’s sort
50:43
of buried out in the mud
50:45
I don’t want when he goes to pull it to
50:48
him to feel the resistance of this lid I
50:50
want that line and I have had it before
50:54
they pull it over like that and hold it
50:56
I will actually reach up and take this
51:00
real hit that it hit my foot because I’m
51:05
like next time he started to pull it
51:06
over
51:07
he’s not going to feel even that much
51:09
tension he’s going to start to think
51:12
then when it starts to go so much him
51:14
his own reach I’m flip Cup in the Rogers
51:17
loads on up and bam
51:19
I got him any more questions
51:28
I just filleted one side of him I just
51:30
filleted one side and sit there and just
51:32
let that flower I would say if I’ve been
51:40
sitting in a place for 30 or 45 minutes
51:43
I’m gonna reel it back up if I go to a
51:46
new plate if I reel my bloom in and he’s
51:48
sitting in there swimming I’m gonna put
51:51
him back in my bait tank you know if I’m
51:53
moving and I’m just gonna be pouring
51:56
water over the top of them trying to
51:57
revive him but someday that shed that
52:01
we’ve cut once I really mean and if I
52:04
got if I if I’ve got plenty of it
52:08
if I’ve got plenty of it I’m going
52:10
through it now if I don’t you just got
52:12
to do what you got to do but if you got
52:14
plenty of bait I’m telling you about 30
52:16
or 40 minutes if you want to change I
52:18
don’t I’m like let’s put some fresh
52:20
stuff on there
52:21
cuz you’ve seen probably when you pull
52:22
that shed out that tank he’s slimy he’s
52:25
got a look to him he’s shiny he’s got a
52:28
smell to him he sitting out water for 45
52:31
minutes or hour he no longer has that
52:34
look to him
52:39
no I sit right there now what I do have
52:44
a 10 especially where’s the water if
52:46
it’s cold temperature I’ll have a
52:48
tendency to sit there longer than I
52:52
would if the temperature was up to 70
52:54
degrees I will pull and I said I’m going
52:56
to fish it a spot and I will literally
52:58
look at my watch and say it’s 9:00 I’m
53:02
like it around 10 or 10 10 10 we roll it
53:05
up and moving now if it’s cold
53:08
I might we may sit here 2 hours because
53:12
I’m time if I haven’t seen them fish on
53:14
my graph and know that they there I’m
53:17
like we’re just gonna sit here and give
53:18
them I noticed they slower biting and
53:21
I’m really when it gets down to that
53:22
cold I’m just out fishing and I’m like
53:25
I’m just after you and I’ll come with
53:28
the mind and say it I will sit here and
53:30
wait you out and that’s the way I think
53:32
about it
53:35
I like it back at home when water to
53:40
different time of the year
53:42
I want a tempered tear around
53:44
Thanksgiving and it starts dropping and
53:47
I will fish for them real hard and heavy
53:50

54:31
to produce a place for him to get I’m
54:36
going to close with this don’t walk off
54:39
on that need about five minutes of your
54:41
attention don’t you go no for Terry in
54:44
2008 there were America put together an
54:49
Olympic track team they had the fastest
54:55
guys at the time on this track team his
54:57
name was Tyson Gay one time he was the
55:01
world’s fastest man
55:02
he’s an America’s Team had always been
55:06
known for having some of the fastest
55:09
athletes in the onliest other team that
55:12
even could come compared to the American
55:15
track team was probably you know who
55:18
they are the Jamaicans they had this guy
55:21
you probably never heard of him his name
55:23
is Usain Bolt America now has been put
55:28
into this competition and everybody is
55:31
looking everybody is excited about the
55:36
Olympic four by 100 the competition USA
55:44
is in the semi-finals not even made it
55:47
to the finals
55:49
no competition for the closest thing
55:52
they had to semifinals was a team by the
55:54
name of France and they wouldn’t even
55:55
hold it on the track with them so
55:57
everybody has built this race up that
56:00
man Jamaica in the US nobody can even
56:02
run there was no competition for them
56:04
and they sounded the gun and the man
56:08
that had to baton in his hand began to
56:10
run if you know anything about racing or
56:15
staying in their hand called a baton and
56:18
he’ll run one leg and when he gets to a
56:20
place he hands it to another man
56:22
and the other man takes off running and
56:25
he runs so far and he gives it to
56:28
another man and he takes off running and
56:30
he gets to the last minute he hands it
56:32
to him and he runs the final leg the
56:36
running part wasn’t the problem
56:38
it was the exchanging of the baton
56:44
and somehow another in the middle of it
56:46
all the unit lost their focus they have
56:52
the lead and it’s not even close and
56:55
they go to exchange it to a man that the
56:59
time was the world he was America’s
57:02
fastest man Tyson Gay they went to try
57:07
to get in his hand and guess what he
57:08
died he dropped the baton now let me
57:15
share this with you they give me an
57:17
opportunity to share a little bit of
57:19
spiritual stuff because we’re meaning
57:22
here today and God has placed something
57:24
in your hand you have a spiritual baton
57:27
if you like me I had sons and daughters
57:30
and you know what job mine was to be the
57:34
stricter of my house to make sure that I
57:38
pass on what’s in me and place it into
57:42
them
57:43
matter of fact Paul said this about
57:45
Timothy he said Timothy I can see the
57:49
faith that abides in you but it is not
57:51
with you it started with your grandmama
57:54
and you know what his grandmama done
57:56
she passed what she had on to her
58:00
daughter you know what her daughter done
58:02
she passed what she had on to her son
58:05
you have a spiritual obligation men as
58:10
spiritual leaders of your home to be the
58:13
man that’s passing the time from one
58:15
generation to the next take it seriously
58:20
play sheep have a great afternoon
58:27
