we’re now here on day number two withmr. Rodney we went to Toho a coupledays ago two days ago and it was notvery goodtoday we’re at Butler and we’re going tomake up for it. I got a little bit of acold so my my voice sounds horrible butuh I’m feeling good and we’re gonnacatch a bunch of fish today. Watch it. it’s basically mana so he couldn’t havemuch a better wind than what we haveright here for what we’re about to dobecause you want to throw them out thereinto that drop-off and uhWe caught a 10-8 on that side. And, in thewintertime there on that drop. The summertime there on this drop. There’s a bunch of. . . a bunch – there has been – mydisclaimer. . . a bunch of three to fivepounders in here. okay. I’m going to throwit out there on a free line. A free line. You just leave it on free spool. . . Leave it on free spool and then you’lljust. . . They’ll take off with itlet them peel line out for a little bitclick it in, pull it tight, and set the hook. That’s different. Yeah. . . I got domestic shiners today instead of wild. The wild shinerstend to. . . the wild shiners tend to swimcloser to the surface and in thesummertime, what the problem is wehaven’t been able to get good domesticshiners this year. For whatever reason they they come from like Kentucky andArkansas and they’re all farm raised andthey’ve been having problems getting thelarges and extra larges we’ve beengetting a bunch of mediums aren’t muchbigger than crappie minutes and it’sonly every couple days that you can landif they have to bigger oneso how do you hook them freely up rightthrough the bottom upcome in bottom and up through one of their nostrils. okay. . . the wild shiners look completelydifferent than these things do yeah yeahthese are domestic or farm-raisedbut they’re so domesticated they don’teven like if you held a wild shiner upnext to them they look completelydifferent I don’t know if they you knowat some point they had they didn’t theseweren’t created in the lab some pointthey were wild shiners that startedbeing bred and I don’t know the wholestory behind that but there got itapparently they want them on a bobber. got them yeah that’s one of those newfate black rods. It’s a decent fish too. There’s a bunch of grass down there too . He thought about jumping. They. . . Oh by the way. . . these fish out here pulled pretty hardso they sometimes you might thinkthey’re big and you get them out of theboat and they weigh like 2 and 1/2pounds. Wow he’s staying down. I just want to look at you I’ll let yougo man that one was he’s about as big asthe biggest one we caught at Toho. Butwe’re going to probably catch a bunch ofthese here today. Open your mouth. That ain’t a bad one. nice. . . nice first fish. You’ve got the khale hooks. That’s a bad hook there went yourshiner had what much down or Osprey gotthem wouldn’t they have to get thepliers on him. Not a bad one. good start. . . well I’m going to put that one back outwith a bobber if it gets hit againbefore that one does then we’re going to have two of them out there with a bobber. Watch your feet there. yeah thislid covers up half the boat okay yesso Rodney’s a artificial lure guy but wespent all day on Toho two days agoartificial lure fishing he said hewanted to try some shiner fishing so Ipicked up two dozen this morning theseare not wild shiners the water is warmthis time of year these are extra largedomestic shiners which are sometimesthey work better on some of these lakesin the summertime and so we’re going toshiner fish for a little bit hereuntil we run out and then we’re going toswitch over and look that one’s goneagain Oh back upAt this rate we won’t have shinersfor very long I think this one’s give nohow do you catch up on this one littleguy. You can take care of him. I’ll see what’s happening on this one. I thought I felt the strike. the thing about shiner fishing is youusually it’s about a 50 to 60 percenthook up ratio where you’re going to missa lot of fish shiner fishing. to fishing yeah thereyou gonow first of all they wanted to bobbernow they’re wanting the free line orthey’re just going back and forth. It doesn’t take them long to find it, does it. nopejust another one and I want a little bitbigger in that second one but not as bigas the first oh oh that one just gotcrushed here I’ll take him he gotcrushed got him yeah it’s hard to get dodoubles by yourselfwe got a long and skinny this one is. he’s got his Beach body going on oh oh wepulled off manit’s okay I got the best for ya oh youoh. He let it goI don’t quite know what to do with thatbobber get that light you got a lot ofslack yeah yeah yeah. Is there any size to him?Is there any size to hime? strong I don’t know like I say I hadn’tcaught enough of them to know probablyfelt like them other ones. yeah I think there’sone on there he’s definitely hit it butthen I don’t know if he went down is heon it he went down the grass and stopswith it. I made him move. That steel hit him. I made him move. That’s six. oh that’s a little bit bigger one. he hit ithard I mean he I had the button hadclicked over and uh a little bit biggerhi one’s got some color to him doesn’t he?This one has been caught before. and he swallowed it. You may have to cut that one only to see itapart he had a little bit too long I cangive that I think pulled up on it maybeyes coming up in Texas when we get themwith that slid on the jaw usuallythey’ve had a cull tag you know yeahnice long fish nice we got no bait inthe water but we got seven fish in theboat hey you know you’d be catching ontop water this morning, did you? Yeah, really. I think you got ya got got like a frogbiteyeah a little second I would have to sayif there was there was there was asecret a shiner fish and it’s calledwaiting well they’re pretty in thatclear water. I don’t even have my glasses on. No big ones yet but they’re decent. there’s usually a this spot here it onlylasts for the morning then they juststop biting here wow this spot and uhthere’s usually you know some fives andsix I mean you always have thatopportunity to get a big one but there’susually at least a five pounder in heresomewherewhoa where’s he yet his way up here bythe front of the boat the one thing theyare doing for you is once you hook themthey’re staying out of the grass thoughyou knowI believe this is a different animalhere I believe. I can’t believe how fast he moved. He came across there like a lightning bolt Ijust want to see youoh that’s nice one there we go oh thatis going I don’t think he’s that big. That’s a fat joker there. oh yeah sweetOh hold on we got time yeah here youjust peeling the line out. I won’t throw this back though. Where is he? He’s back under your trolling motor. oh oh ohyeah yeah come up here we got chaosthere we go I’m holding one about fiveand he had one how fast is that fishgoing I don’t know. He went around this20-foot boat like it wasn’t even here. He came off. Are you serious? after all that I like to have apicture of this one. give it that buy somethingI would say thank you it back to mechunkier than most of your fish look this time of year. Thanks for the ride mr. fishI can’t believe that one came off yeahthat’s this one was probably two and ahalf all right they’re definitelyhitting a free line betterHe’s going to the front of the boat. . . Again!why are they moving so much? I don’t know. Oh that’s not a bad one. I wonder why they’re moving so much?there’s other other fish in there it’s acompetitive type thing I guess. Oh, that’s a good fish, a pretty fish. Did you see? It spooked a gar a couple of feet over. . . we almost caught a. . . we almost had thewrong kind of double we almost had athat’s a chunk yes look at thatwe almost had a bass and an osprey muchthe same time. Not the double. . . you’ll have to roll it over when they’reon that side of the mouth Oh No so Ihave this camera tilted down but thatwas an osprey that just grabbed one of ourshiners. That’s crazy! When they’re onthis side of the mouth because I’mleft-handed I can get them but whenthey’re angled on this side I have ahard problem you that’s a good threepounder at three and a half probably anyjust because of that that belly rightThey’re pretty in that clear water. Yeah. There you go. oh ohsomething come got my shiner over therelooks like. no. The shiner is still with the fishoh they’re so much fun. Well, he’s thehardest fighting one so far. but he’s not the biggest. He’s still a good fighting fish. Do you want me get him? He’s not too big. He might be too big for a boat flip. He’s bigger than I thought he was. he’s just long right he’s four yeah Iwould say wouldn’t you yeah I’m going toshow people I’ve noticed in my footagethat when I’m holding these fish up andI say they’re about four they don’tbecause it’s just my hand right herethey look smaller to me they do I don’tknow if nobody’s nobody said anythingbut let’s see how close I am. zero. . . he maybe a little under four. we’ll see herethree pounds, nine ounces. so he’s three and a half. pretty fish. 3-9, not four pounds. About four years ago my wife bought me a gopro hero3 black formy birthday and I was just wanting todo a little couple of videos and I wantto do this video where. Oops. Did one get hit? yep. On the bobber back there. They’re all around us. Is he smaller? Yeah. Is he running at the boat? He feels smaller. He may turn it on right here at the boat. He’s trying to dig. Is he trying to get in the motor? Is he in it? Look at it. There went your shiner. Yeah. Little guy. pretty fish. So, I wanted to do a little video. I had asuction cup mount and I put it on myYamaha and I wanted to leave – I had ashell bed where they were on a grassline off of a shell bed and I wanted todo one shot. . . Me leaving big Toho Marina,running down, making a cast and catchingone. One cast. I wanted that to be onewhole shot without editing it. and I got it. But, I also wanted the Sun comingup, and I had this whole vision of what itwas going to look like. And, I took offrunning down the lake and went downthere. I didn’t want myself to be lookingback. I didn’t want to edit it. I wantedto do a one shot video. I took offhauling butt down the lake. . . Oh, there wego. And we’re interrupted. It’s alright. I had just pulled that one out of the grass when he come up and took it. just another one. It’s number 12, or something. There you go. nice. Yeah, so I ran down the lake. It worked perfect. I went to that grassline, through a trick worm out there. Bump. I’m thinking, Man, I can’t believethis is working I catch one about threeand a half pounds put in the water putit in the deal went back and look at thefootage about 15 seconds after I tookoff a giant swamp mosquito couldn’t havecenter punched your lens. I mean justsplattered the whole thing was just ablurry mess. and as I’m running downthe lake you can see those legs goinglike this but it ruined my whole sunriseshot you know and so I waited aboutanother week and did it and I thoughtwell screw this I’m gonna have to dosome editing so I kept looking backlooking back and looking back and Iended up getting a decent video but ittook me three casts to catch one and itwas the Sun coming up so when I did alittle clip from me stopping and makinga cast it was so much brighter likethree casts later as the Sun was climbingup. . . I was so mad, though. that works so good with these thingsdoesn’t hurt them at all either becauseit’s pushing it away from the barb rightsliding right out. there’s always. . . and nottoday. we are out of bait. That didn’t take long, did it?I think that was 14. . . 13 or 14 on twodozen shiners, which is a really goodaverage. you’re way over 50%. and nowwe’re going to go work for them. but I’msure we’ll do fine. No speaking while we’re fishing with artificial lures. Is that a good one? He’s decent. Number 26! That’s not a bad one. He bulldogged you there for a second. Yeah, he did. Where have you been all my life?Need another worm? It’s like the grand finale. Look at that. Schooling Bass. I know they’re all tiny though aren’ttheymaybe I’ll do a how to catch schooling bass video when I figure out how to catchschooling fish. Because, dear Lord. . .
