00:00

00:01
city kansas on milford lake i’m with
00:04
ryan nagy guide
00:06
uh he’s been guiding down here i know
00:08
over a decade haven’t you yeah pretty
00:10
close we’re uh we’re going to come out
00:11
here and try to catch some strikers to
00:14
say wipers crappie yeah crappie okay
00:17
something new for me
00:18
so we on our first spot we’re getting
00:20
pretty close we’ll see if there’s some
00:22
crappie in here
00:24
what what how how are you approaching
00:25
this what’s what are we pulling up here
00:27
too this is just a man-made brush pile
00:29
it’s a bunch of oh it looks like i think
00:31
it’s old
00:33
plastic casings in a pot of concrete and
00:36
it’s just dropped down here but there’s
00:37
several it looks kind of like a
00:38
christmas tree i got more
00:41
upside down
00:43
palm tree or something like that
00:45
but i know it’s here i got it marked i
00:46
found a side scanning shoreline just one
00:48
day looking for stuff i’ve seen it right
00:50
it’s nice because you don’t really get
00:52
snagged up in it but it’s it’s got some
00:53
really good crappie but i gotta get that
00:55
set up on girls the wind’s gonna be
01:00
all right guys ryan is going to show us
01:02
the live scope the garmin live scope
01:04
and see what it’s about i’ve been
01:06
interested in this myself i have one but
01:08
i haven’t had a chance to play with it
01:10
jenna had it turned on and had it ready
01:12
for you
01:14
to get this thing fired up we’ll find
01:16
our pile and we’ll look see what we can
01:18
find this wind is just normal up here
01:20
huh yeah i mean
01:23
in the spring it really blows but this
01:25
is not normal out of the north unless
01:27
we’re in the in the winter right but
01:34
rush pile’s right over here
01:47
we’ll get pushed back over here to find
01:49
it we’ll look in and we’ll look at it
01:51
and see if we got crappie in it before
01:52
we actually start fishing for it right i
01:54
gotta teach you
02:00
so i got this thing set up to where
02:01
we’re just gonna be just above the
02:02
bottom just a little bit
02:04
right here’s our bottom line
02:06
now i’m gonna run this out to about 45
02:08
foot and we’ll start looking for it real
02:09
quick
02:11
so you’re looking out forty foot
02:13
fifty a little something like that with
02:15
this
02:16
yep that should be coming up ahead of us
02:18
so we’re we moved our
02:20
i’ll move this onto this but we moved on
02:22
you got you can see i got a
02:25
waypoint dropped right here so we’re
02:27
right here we’re creeping up on us okay
02:29
we’re just nine foot of water yep
02:31
not a very deep spot
02:34
and so the crappies done spawned in here
02:36
this year that’s definitely does it tell
02:38
you how much power you have and
02:39
everything yeah that trolling motor
02:42
that’s how much i’m running right now
02:44
transferred over to them lithium jet yep
02:46
have you yep
02:48
i’m running an amped outdoor lithiums
02:50
and they seem to be pretty good i’m
02:51
running the smallest ones they got which
02:52
are only 60 amp hour i got 312 to make a
02:55
36 volt system but with these
02:58
brushless trolling motors man they just
02:59
they last
03:01
oh yeah i go all day long and never have
03:02
any issues i think we’ll start seeing
03:05
our piles in here somewhere
03:12
down a little bit deeper
03:15
there we go i passed it up just you can
03:17
see them crappie in that pile right
03:19
there
03:20
that’s all
03:24
i’m gonna pull that back
03:26
ahead of us now you can see
03:30
yeah you can see the structure that’s in
03:32
there and since we’re close enough we’ll
03:33
shrink that down just a little bit
03:37
and still need to back up
03:41
oh that’s quiet
03:42
that trolling motor yeah yeah it’s real
03:44
i mean you can’t hear a run either like
03:46
when it’s running
03:50
i’m gonna change colors because green’s
03:51
looking a little fuzzy today so
03:54
let’s go back here
03:57
and
03:59
so then our setup appearance color
04:01
scheme go back to amber that’s going to
04:03
look better oh yeah
04:08
so you can see that’s the that’s the
04:10
big pop that all this is sitting on you
04:12
can see the umbrella umbrellas coming up
04:13
you can see all these hot spots right
04:15
and that’s where this this it’s a
04:17
like a pvc type deal
04:19
see one coming up swimming around but
04:21
yeah it’s a pvc type deal um and so this
04:25
one actually reflects pretty hard but
04:26
there’s three of them sitting right in
04:27
here i got this to the left of us i’m
04:29
gonna back up just a little bit more and
04:31
then i want to get this thing just right
04:32
off to the side of us or right in front
04:34
of us just
04:36
now the transducer you’re working with
04:37
is this one this one okay and so
04:40
wherever this is pointing
04:42
is where is where this is at so i lost
04:45
should be ahead of us just a little bit
04:46
i’ll keep turning this you see them
04:48
coming in they’re coming into that oh
04:50
yeah there’s all they move in and out of
04:51
that
04:54
okay so it’s gonna creep back up so you
04:56
can see there’s quite a bit quite a
04:58
big pile of whatever in there
05:01
and right now i’ve got this
05:03
there’s a pile from four foot zero
05:07
is this transducer right so from about
05:10
four foot
05:12
to 26 foot we got stuff in front of us
05:14
that way yep straight ahead of the boat
05:17
actually let’s talk on your side just a
05:18
little bit so so when we start casting
05:20
we’re gonna cast that way yep and i’m
05:22
gonna actually bump forward one more
05:24
bump get me just a little closer look at
05:26
them fish swimming in the top of that
05:27
pile yeah
05:29
oh this is awesome
05:33
we’ll get to where we can put the baits
05:34
right here these crappie i mean we’re
05:36
only 11 foot these crappie are not
05:38
bashful about me sitting right on top of
05:39
them really nope not at all
05:41
as a matter of fact i can take
05:43
this is this this this is
05:45
easy i know
05:47
that there’s crappie right in here so 10
05:49
foot take a 10 foot rod
05:51
i’m gonna put this right in front of
05:53
here i want to watch my bait go right
05:54
down to them and i’m gonna stop that
05:55
bait right on top of them all right so i
05:58
just tossed it in there guys yeah i see
06:00
it
06:01
there’s one right there on it yeah
06:03
that was quick dead stick it yeah they
06:05
find it real quick and then
06:07
probably a bunch of little ones right
06:08
there on top they’re bigger ones they’ve
06:10
usually got in there a little bit deeper
06:12
but i’m gonna do it again
06:13
i’ll drop it down a little farther
06:16
see my bait go down see that little
06:17
one’s changing oh yeah they do i get
06:19
down in there
06:22
i’m a dead stick it right in the middle
06:25
and give it
06:26
10 15 seconds and wait and see what
06:28
happens
06:29
and i’m going to slowly just as slow as
06:31
i can turn the reel reel it straight up
06:35
and usually you’ll get a big thump on
06:36
the way up
06:40
you ever tip it with a minnow or
06:42
anything i never use minutes really i
06:44
don’t feel like you need to anymore most
06:46
the time i mean in tough situations
06:48
probably but normally
06:50
these fish in this lake will eat
06:52
any type of little
06:54
just two inch anything i mean curly tail
06:56
grubs when they’re on the banks or if
06:58
they’re not on the banks anything with a
06:59
straight tail or something that just
07:01
wiggles and
07:03
from what i i used to
07:05
think everybody used to have to put it
07:07
down there and they jig it and they jig
07:09
it and they jig it and after watching
07:11
that on this live scope when you jig it
07:14
most the time they turn and go the other
07:15
direction oh really they they like it
07:17
very still presentation
07:20
um you put it down there and you just
07:21
dead stick it hold it dead still
07:24
and what sits there they’ll look they’ll
07:26
swim right up to it look at it
07:28
and then make up their mind and they’ll
07:31
either leave or they’ll eat it right um
07:34
but as soon as you start twitching it
07:35
and jigging it real hard man they just
07:37
did that’s not even natural no they dig
07:39
out quick so they’ll hit it on the drop
07:42
real fast if they want to right off the
07:44
bat or sometimes the slower you can lift
07:47
that thing just reel it up i mean super
07:48
super slow and they’ll follow that bait
07:51
out of 25 foot of water almost to the
07:52
surface of the water right and
07:55
they’re interested in that and they’ll
07:56
hit it on the way up if they’re going to
07:58
eat it but if they come up and you stop
08:00
like if they’re following it and you
08:02
stop that bait they’ll turn and swim
08:03
right back to the bottom they want a
08:04
very natural slow presentation they are
08:06
not an aggressive i want to chase
08:08
something fish right unless they’re on
08:10
the bank spawning so that that live
08:12
scope is taught
08:13
yeah a lot of stuff yeah
08:15
you get to see firsthand what how that
08:17
looks like a big nice fish yeah that’s a
08:19
better fish right there that’s not a
08:20
crappie it’s not a crappie nope that’s
08:23
something else swimming through there
08:24
could be a blue look how he’s real this
08:26
real slow tail two of them coming
08:28
through there yeah it could be a blue
08:30
could be a buffalo could be a carp it’s
08:31
hard to tell uh really what it is but
08:34
you know that ain’t no crop you swim
08:35
through there our crappie are gonna be
08:36
these smaller dots swimming around up in
08:38
here right okay
08:40
okay
08:41
that’s
08:43
try this again 12 foot
08:46
that’s a little farther
08:48
watch my bait drop right there put it
08:50
right in front of that guy
08:52
they drop down and look at it yep
08:53
they’re looking they just ain’t
08:57
we got a north front that came in we had
08:59
a big storm could flow through yesterday
09:00
we didn’t get the storm here but it came
09:02
right north of the lake
09:03
and we had 60 mile an hour winds did
09:05
some damage here in kansas and this
09:08
morning we wake up to a nice north
09:10
northeast wind so
09:13
we don’t normally get northeast winds
09:14
here in the summertime oh yeah
09:21
that’s a shame
09:24
oh that one there went crazy dude yeah
09:26
changing something i don’t know what
09:27
he’s chasing
09:29
it’s interesting to watch it’s
09:30
fascinating see how much movement there
09:32
is right because you used to look at a
09:34
normal sonar and on that normal sonar
09:37
nothing’s moving it’s just printed
09:39
across your screen and it’s sitting
09:40
there right with this you i mean there’s
09:42
movement of all kinds in there oh yeah
09:46
i just came over
09:48
look at all that stuff swimming around
09:49
the top
09:52
some of it is pretty big yeah it’s
09:54
probably buffalo or something oh yeah
09:56
maybe white bass or something swimming
09:57
through there
09:59
there’s a bunch of them coming in yeah
10:02
feeding on the little crappie baby
10:05
hey a little guy
10:09
well you gotta be nine inches around
10:10
here we don’t have a length limit on
10:11
this lake most of the lakes in kansas
10:13
have a 10 inch that one’s probably about
10:14
eight so okay fat little guy but
10:19
and that’s what i i’ve seen a lot of
10:21
little smaller fish i bet that’s what
10:23
this one’s full of we may have to go
10:24
find something different too i got you
10:27
see my crappie piles that’s what we were
10:29
fishing but we got a lot of other stuff
10:30
so we we noticed on that video there was
10:32
stuff swimming in and out of here but
10:34
this is all probably white bass and
10:36
small wipers uh-huh all this small stuff
10:39
that was coming in and out of here you
10:40
can see some back in this area yeah so
10:42
but that was the that was what the
10:44
structure we were fishing and this is
10:45
other stuff that’s just in the area and
10:47
this is just a mud flat out here
10:49
[Music]
10:54
snagged
11:00
do this trick
11:03
nope not deep enough
11:12
all you got
11:14
you ever seen anybody do that i see
11:15
nobody do that
11:18
basically you just use the tip of your
11:20
rod run it down there and knock it off
11:21
the branch well yeah i’ve never seen
11:23
anybody do that before
11:24
you don’t think i messed them fish up no
11:26
probably they just don’t spook from
11:28
stuff like that now i mean they weren’t
11:31
feeding all that right again with it
11:33
well they’re still in the power it
11:35
looked like me they had to run them out
11:36
of power but
11:39
i thought i found a big wad of shad one
11:40
time i threw my cast net on it there’s
11:42
one little stick stick and i’ve added a
11:44
bunch of nice crappie about that big and
11:45
i had about a dozen crappie in my net
11:47
and i dropped
11:48
there’s one
11:49
oh where’s that’s another one
11:52
i dropped that all them crappie back out
11:54
of the net and i watched him on live
11:56
scope and go right back to that tree and
11:58
i thought huh
12:00
well i’ll be dang
12:02
crappie there so i took my pole and cast
12:03
it out there and caught me four five of
12:04
them bro yeah they just they’re just a
12:06
weird fish zap like this doesn’t bother
12:08
them
12:09
nice crappie oh yeah let’s open up on
12:11
that
12:13
that branch
12:16
oh
12:21
well they’re starting to become a little
12:22
more active though yeah you’ll probably
12:23
have to catch 20 of them small ones get
12:25
one he went right back to them
12:27
but right there yep
12:29
and went right back down
12:34
like i said i don’t know if that little
12:36
front did something to him so i didn’t
12:37
get out there quite far enough i’m gonna
12:39
reset that
12:48
drop it right in on these fish right
12:50
here
12:55
stop it right there at his level and let
12:57
him make up his mind
13:03
see that bait swam back on
13:05
yeah it’s swinging back
13:07
we’ll do it again
13:09
you’re going way out there a little bit
13:11
farther let that drift right across the
13:13
top of that
13:14
see if i can
13:15
tune that in yeah there you go oh
13:17
something come out of that pile this big
13:19
probably a bass
13:24
have you dialed this in on any catfish
13:26
yet yeah a few um
13:28
i really really really like using the
13:30
the perspective mode which turns the
13:33
transducer into what basically is a
13:36
forward-looking side scan yeah and uh in
13:39
shallow water it’s it’s really effective
13:41
um you can look around find them and
13:43
then
13:44
either
13:45
anchor spot lock or whatever and then
13:47
cast in those directions and use them i
13:49
have not been able to really use it too
13:51
effectively
13:52
in um
13:54
just open water chasing something down
13:55
and right and catching something that
13:57
way but definitely can use it
14:00
kevin parks and i used it at the cap
14:01
masters tournament down at possum
14:02
kingdom and took second and and
14:04
livescope come into a big play in that
14:06
right and they stand in timber
14:08
that’s all that lake is is temporary so
14:09
yeah so you come out of that shallow
14:11
water and went to that standing timber
14:13
yeah did good yeah we got nothing big in
14:15
this one let’s go find another one all
14:16
right
14:17
but yeah it uh
14:22
it’s effective i mean
14:25
all right guys we uh we have finished up
14:28
with the crappie the crappie weren’t
14:30
cooperating as much as we’d like today
14:32
so uh we are going to try to drag
14:35
for some catfish
14:37
and give her a shot we’re going to give
14:38
her a shot
14:40
in the middle of the spawn so yeah
14:42
probably gonna be tough on that but
14:44
we’ll catch a few
14:46
you’re gonna run some planer boards on
14:47
yeah i’m gonna get out some planer
14:49
boards and uh spread them out a little
14:50
bit because we’re we’re pretty shallow
14:52
we’re only in nine foot right now and
14:53
we’re gonna drop off a little bit deeper
14:55
but those fish don’t like being under
14:56
this boat so they’ll
14:57
pull off the sides we’ll cover a bigger
14:59
area we’ll see what we can get all right
15:07
okay guys we’re fixing to pull a drip
15:09
i like to say i am on the boat with
15:13
ryan nagy he is
15:15
on milford lake and what’s name of your
15:17
guide service it’s prime time catfishing
15:19
it’s three words prime time catfishing
15:23
all right you’ve been doing this for
15:25
over a decade that i know of it yeah i
15:27
started i’ve been doing it full-time for
15:29
11 years and i’ve been
15:31
um i did it part-time for a while before
15:34
probably three or four years before that
15:35
before i decided to make the jump yeah
15:40
it’s been a good time
15:42
loading the planer boards up yep i like
15:44
to lock them down so they don’t pop
15:45
loose yeah now we are motivating right
15:48
now yeah greg we are going forward we’re
15:50
running i got a half mile an hour once i
15:52
get them spread out i’ll speed it up
15:53
just to get the boards out a little bit
15:54
farther and faster and then i’ll
15:56
probably
15:57
drop her back down just pull a slow
15:58
through
16:00
point four point five
16:01
i’ll probably go yeah point five point
16:04
seven somewhere in there there our
16:05
water’s warm so
16:07
it’s 80.
16:13
we got some 50 pounders in this lake
16:15
yeah yeah there should be some bigger
16:17
than that all right yeah
16:20
now i seen something that that i don’t
16:22
do that
16:24
you just did what’s that you double
16:25
wrapped that clip i do not like it to
16:27
pop loose at all no i’ve never
16:30
even guiding
16:31
with people that don’t know how to fight
16:33
a fish i’ve never lost a fish due to
16:35
having to take that planer board off
16:36
right so i lock them down so you get
16:38
those little ones that wrap on it bang
16:40
on it pretty hard and don’t hook up
16:41
there’s no sense of happening pull it
16:43
back in and reset it right
16:45
that’s a good idea yeah
16:47
speed speed game sometimes you know you
16:49
got a
16:50
time if you only got five hours to go
16:52
out and fish and catch as many fish as
16:53
you can right and then and you have to
16:55
pull a super super slow drip there’s no
16:57
sense of doing it super slow right
16:59
maximize your time you’re out there
17:05
now your one board’s way out there
17:07
already is there a
17:09
have you got a pattern that you stagger
17:11
them no i’m just gonna drop the drop the
17:14
first two that i set on there at the
17:16
same distance and then once i get out
17:18
there
17:19
i don’t know
17:21
i’ll go a little bit farther and i’ll
17:22
lock it down and let it pull out to the
17:23
side and i’ll do the same thing with
17:24
these okay
17:26
these boards
17:31
i’ve got that one locked down so it’s
17:32
starting to pull out yeah
17:42
so this is just a random flat there’s
17:44
really nothing here that you’re fishing
17:46
other than being a flight not much other
17:47
than the you know right now you got the
17:50
river that comes in and it kind of dumps
17:51
in this is the first area of the lake
17:54
there ain’t no
17:56
there ain’t nothing
18:00
nothing just mud just mug
18:03
that’s all this lake is mud
18:05
that’s why i said it was a trollers
18:07
drifter’s dream
18:08
oh yeah yeah i mean
18:10
back in the day we used to drift
18:12
coagulated blood um oh i remember that
18:15
and it was it would you had to use a
18:17
soft rod and light line you know
18:19
stretched a lot because this stuff would
18:22
would uh
18:23
come off the hook pretty easy and if you
18:25
had a rough bottom at all then that
18:26
stuff just
18:27
gets snaggy and pop like that and just
18:29
pull off the hook but this thing is just
18:30
mud bottom man that’s all it just
18:33
smooth i remember old john jameson back
18:35
in the day he he come up with that blood
18:38
that’s what he used to come he comes
18:39
kentucky at henderson cabela’s
18:42
and he’d have that coagulated blood yep
18:49
oh there him
18:52
well
18:54
i don’t
19:07
oh yeah
19:23
you want to drop me in a little booty
19:48
leave it big like that that’ll pop off
19:50
so fast all right
19:52
that’s not an issue i’ve never had an
19:55
issue with that one
20:02
you’re catching anything
20:04
i’ve
20:17
33 pounds
20:22
there we go
20:23
a little one start today yeah
20:30
there we go
20:43
and then the rest were scattered around
20:44
the lake so they wanted to see what
20:46
their movement was over a two year
20:47
period
20:48
and it’s it’s
20:53
with the device in them
20:59
and then they had
21:05
that was for the first summer and then
21:06
after that they had a much more that
21:08
they got
21:09
loaded up right about 150 total and i
21:12
caught one of those 150 out of all of
21:14
them in this lake all right and then
21:15
brian panic is another guy down the lake
21:18
here he uh
21:19
he’s caught one also but i’ve still
21:21
never seen one since
21:27
he feeling bigger
21:32
well i figured that’s all we’re going to
21:33
get anyway today because we’re spawning
21:36
occasionally we do catch some bigger
21:37
ones you know
21:49
back in the game
21:53
now both of those hit like the farthest
21:56
one out didn’t they pretty typical the
21:58
outside board seemed that like
22:00
that one’s gonna be an outsider for sure
22:02
the outside board seems to always pick
22:04
up more fish
22:09
he’s about the same size got the same
22:10
size
22:18
that’s why i
22:19
keep talking to people about you know
22:21
it’s better if you’re gonna take any
22:22
home and eat that fish is only three or
22:24
four years old that’s an easy fish to
22:25
replace in the waterway but oh yeah 12
22:27
to 15 and this lake is 10. oh 10 years
22:29
old so
22:31
it takes 10 years before you get any
22:32
good to have a fish in the lake so
22:34
that’s why it’s important to turn those
22:35
loose yes sir
22:37
you got a lot of bite marks on this yeah
22:40
he’s had uh
22:42
something bigger yep
22:46
he can go get bigger
22:49
well that’s two and just like a little
22:51
little pass yeah well i know the eaters
22:54
themselves fishing people been catching
22:55
those but
22:57
anything of any size
23:03
but there has been some good ones caught
23:04
so
23:09
for us it seems like
23:12
oh hey
23:13
green rod holder oh
23:15
that’s a good one
23:17
he didn’t hook up i don’t think yep
23:27
well
23:29
they’re all over
23:49
that’s a little guy
23:53
they hit it hard though don’t they
23:55
yep good stuff
23:57
i think he’s a little bit bigger than
23:58
rick than we talked though not much
24:00
give him an extra pound yeah
24:04
pretty fast action so far
24:08
yeah i mean i don’t know why any little
24:09
kids wouldn’t have the ball doing this
24:10
or even there’s a lot of adulterer
24:12
that’ll fall down
24:13
oh yeah
24:15
i think a lot of people get hung up um
24:16
everything’s got to be giant yeah
24:19
well i’m i’m tired of giant myself to be
24:21
honest with you that’s why i had so much
24:23
fun yesterday in that little mud duck
24:24
boat yeah going up the kansas river
24:30
fishing with worms and stuff is that
24:32
back old schools yeah yeah
24:36
fat healthy little fish they are
24:38
they sure are they’re pretty i love all
24:40
their colors they got inside of them all
24:42
that iridescent purple purple yeah
24:44
golds
24:46
they’re pretty
24:47
they lose that once they get so big
24:49
though yeah
24:51
i mean they still got to an extent but
24:54
they do that they got that
24:56
pearl look when they’re
24:59
really young
25:00
pretty yeah those
25:03
those are the
25:04
high bulbs that we catch man they got
25:07
some coppers and golds in them and
25:09
oranges and pinks and
25:14
they got some real fancy colors in them
25:15
so you got
25:17
there’s a bunch of them that must be the
25:18
genetics are up in here then yeah it’s
25:20
genetic
25:22
yeah we got a lot of them what’s the
25:24
biggest one you’ve caught biggest one
25:26
i’ve got a 33.
25:28
that was a black and white 33
25:30
and actually caught it two weeks in a
25:32
row already had the black and white
25:34
coloration it was really easy to
25:36
identify in pictures oh yeah what’s
25:38
weird is both of them
25:41
they’re about 700 yards apart from where
25:43
i caught it
25:45
both of them caught by 13 year olds
25:47
one was a 13 year old boy that was a 13
25:49
year old girl
25:50
and i thought that was so cool yeah
25:54
but i think there’s one of them
25:55
one of them i’ve caught three times um
25:57
it wasn’t very big it’s just a little
25:58
one but right um i know by
26:02
the way the patterns were on it you can
26:04
hold those pictures up side by side and
26:05
they’re gone yeah easily identifiable
26:22
whatever that snag was we hung up on he
26:24
was right there with it
26:29
yeah that’s the size you want to eat
26:31
yeah
26:35
yep
26:36
actually i like his black fans
26:42
so on a rule of thumb you’re in what
26:44
kind of water here
26:45
13 foot so
26:47
what do you got about 25 30 foot of line
26:50
out before you like if i can
26:53
usually about double or triple the
26:55
length before i put my board on okay and
26:57
that way i get a good angle some people
27:00
you know
27:01
get them too far this way and then when
27:02
the fish pulls on it they’re pulling
27:04
down and you got to do a lot of reeling
27:05
before you ever get the attention put
27:06
off
27:07
if i can keep the angle of this line out
27:10
to my board and then not change that
27:12
angle too much to to the hook yeah
27:15
they’ll hook themselves
27:17
so kansas guys
27:20
y’all
27:21
got a pretty good force of catfish
27:23
anglers in your state
27:26
every year is blowing up so what’s
27:28
what’s the main bodies of water that you
27:30
kansas guys fish i know milford’s always
27:32
on the map yeah that’s like the premier
27:35
one to go to but man we got a lot of
27:36
good lakes title creek’s good perry is
27:38
good clinton’s getting good john
27:41
redmond’s a great catfish john riben’s
27:43
got awesome channel cats in it and some
27:45
blues
27:46
we got wolf creek that’s got blues in it
27:48
wilson’s got blues in it i mean the
27:50
state stalked a lot of blues over the
27:51
last 10 years oh okay and uh
27:55
and of course fish the rivers itself we
27:57
got yeah we got the
28:00
well the only navigable body of water we
28:02
only have three rivers you can actually
28:03
put a boat on and travel up and down in
28:05
kansas oh so kansas river is the main
28:07
one
28:09
but then we have the the
28:11
rivers that run into these reservoirs
28:13
you can go up those rivers up until the
28:15
end of the wildlife area right um so
28:17
there’s a lot of rivers you can still
28:18
fish especially when you get water
28:20
running in those fish come out of these
28:21
reservoirs and go up those rivers and
28:23
that can get really good oh god so and
28:26
then of course the missouri river is is
28:27
a pretty one for oh yeah that’s close
28:30
that’s just you know the east side of
28:32
our state is the missouri river up by
28:33
kansas city
28:35
at st joe missouri and
28:37
all of central missouri a lot of
28:39
catfishermen in there too right
28:41
they got that river and that river’s got
28:42
some giants in it it’s a big chance
28:45
right
28:47
well y’all got some pretty country up
28:48
here i’m having fun
28:51
learning some new water
28:56
yeah well i do like the dragging aspect
29:00
of this as far as no hang-ups yeah we
29:02
don’t have to worry no trees we got no
29:04
trees
29:08
no it’s a drager’s flake so
29:12
people ask about tournaments well how do
29:13
you pinpoint what you’re gonna do well
29:15
you gotta spend some time on it and look
29:17
around right
29:18
spend a lot of time on these sonars find
29:20
what you need what you’re comfortable
29:22
doing and
29:23
that’s the other thing people well do we
29:24
need to drag it do we need to anchor
29:26
fish it whatever your comfort zone yeah
29:29
stick to your comfort zone don’t try to
29:32
change up just because somebody else
29:33
says that you got to catch them
29:34
suspended or you got to catch them
29:36
dragging or you got to catch them
29:37
anchored or you got to catch them on the
29:38
ledge or you gotta catch them on a flat
29:40
you know
29:40
what is your specialty and stick to that
29:42
you know maybe there’s times to go
29:44
outside the box but
29:47
if you’re comfortable doing one thing
29:48
and you can produce fish doing it that
29:50
way then do it absolutely well i think a
29:52
lot of guys especially with these
29:53
tournaments they get psyched out from
29:55
listening to other guys they got a game
29:57
plan they’ve gone out there and caught a
29:58
few fish but then they get back to the
29:59
captain’s meeting and then they started
30:01
hearing this other stuff 80. i caught a
30:03
90. i got this and then they’re like
30:05
well we got to change things up and then
30:06
today the tournament they’re all screwed
30:07
up yep
30:09
use your gut your gut feeling and that’s
30:11
generally your best one
30:12
absolutely yep
30:15
if you got a solid game plan going into
30:16
a tournament you know and then you’re
30:18
comfortable with it i’d stick to it yeah
30:19
it’s usually what’s going to do do you
30:21
the best yeah don’t don’t get
30:23
sidetracked
30:25
or psyched out right
30:27
that’s more like it though
30:28
people panic yeah about noontime they
30:30
ain’t caught much and they panic and you
30:32
see them start running all over the lake
30:33
and you’re like huh
30:35
that guy he’s struggling today yeah but
30:38
you can definitely tell when they’re
30:40
struggling yep
30:43
that’s what i like about it when you got
30:44
a couple good ones in the boat and uh
30:48
everybody’s starting to struggle you’re
30:49
like i’m just going to grind her out
30:51
yeah
30:54
makes you feel a little better oh yeah
30:57
grind it out
31:06
oh
31:07
he’s got a lot to say yeah
31:10
he’s made
31:25
another nice one he’ll grow up
31:33
right there’s why i like braid though i
31:35
mean they hurt themselves
31:45
okay guys we’re going to wrap it up we
31:47

31:48
