Oh, oh, oh! Here we go! Here we go! [Mike] Oh, it dropped, it dropped– So now we’re going to be talking about the three fish I would recommend for this year, 2018, that you must try. One, two, three, ~ Happy New Year! ~ Happy 2018. 2017 was awesome. Yeah, we did a lot, we did, like, a lot of weird product reviews, like the chum bucket rig, the self-setting rod, we broke a lot of stuff…
[Daniel] Oh!! OWHH! OW–OWHH! But 2018 is going to be even better because this year we’re focusing on you guys, we want to help as many people as possible, hook up on their first fish, hook up on more fish, we want to help you guys get on some more fish this year. That’s what we’re focusing on. We’re also, we’re primarily going to be focusing on beach fishing and salt water fishing this year. Now, I understand that not everyone here is from the east coast, a lot of you guys are international, a lot of you guys are from the west coast, but a lot of these fishing methods will apply, it’s-it’s not– just because it’s not the same fish doesn’t mean the techniques won’t work for the fish in your area. Get your surf fishing rods and get ready ’cause this year’s going to be awesome. Today we’re going to help you guys out by showing you three kinds of fish that we really think you should try targeting in this next coming year. Starting with #1 The bluefish. [indistinct talking] Brendon’s on it. Now so long as you bring that baby up… Whoo! (Whoohoo!!!) The bluefish are frikkin crazy. Okay? Let me tell you, I know a lot of people call them junk fish but they are the #2 fish to catch, besides uh, stripers in this area right here. Um, we caught a lot of bluefish in the Deleware Indian River Inlet, during the spring time last year, um, and that’s in a few months coming up, um, so get your rods ready because the bluefish are coming soon, and they’re pretty easy to catch, what you really need is something shiny, a little, shiny, metal lure, or a bucktail, or cut bait, bluefish are vicious, and they’ll really hit anything that’s in front of them, as long as it’s either shiny or it smells like fish. Biggest blue I think I’ve ever caught. Ha ha ha! Alright, #2 So after the spring time, it’s getting pretty hot, it’s actually getting really hot out– Like, too hot for a lot of fish to bite. Yeah, like too hot for a lot of the big fish to be around, However, shark fishing is going to be really great this year, So, the summer heat, a lot of the sharks in Florida are real close in to the surf, and um, we discovered this last year, we were seeing so many sharks from the surf, um, that it was-it was just like shooting fish in a barrel. So we were in Florida and we met these two dudes who who were pretty good at shark fishing, we had never shark fished before, and they showed us how to do it and it was frikkin awesome, and we want you guys to try this as well. [Mike] There you go, there you go! Reel! Reel! Reel! Reel! There you go!
Aaaargh!! [Mike] Reel!
[Evan] No, no, no, no! [Mike] Reel! He got it, he got it, let him go, he got it, he got it. There you go! Shark!
[Brendon] What do I do!? Right! Go! Reel it, baby! Let’s go! We got a shark on, baby!
[Brendon] Aaargh!! We got a shark on! [Evan] No! No! Don’t reel! Only reel if he come in! There you go, go! Follow him! Follow him, follow him! Follow him down the beach! There you go, baby! You’ve got a shark on! It feels like I’m hooked on to a small car right now and it’s taking me for a ride. The only chance I have is letting it fight and then reeling in the slack. When fighting big fish, it’s a game of tug-of-war, if you pull too hard, the line will snap. The shark is driving me down the beach, and towards the inlet. [Mike laughing] Bring him in! [Evan] That’s what we come to sebastian for. [all laughing] Careful, careful! [Mike] Prrrr!
[Evan] Yeah! There we go!
We did it! Whoo!
Our first blacktip! Now, the hard part about shark fishing is you need to have the right equipment, or a shark’s power will literally strip your reel and snap your line. So 1) Learn how to properly handle a shark so you don’t hurt the shark and you don’t hurt yourself. 2.) If you haven’t done shark fishing ever before, go with someone else, preferably who has done shark fishing before, and 3.) Make sure you have heavy, strong gear, because sharks are strong. Let’s put it back in. How do you–how do you unhook this? Aaargh! Did it hit you in the nuts?
It smacked him. It’s alright, I feel these–I feel them a lot of times. Just pull the nose up if you could. Like this?
You’re good, you’re good. Oh, my god! Look at his teeth! Get that GoPro in there! Has anyone watching this ever caught a shark? Because this was our first time! Lax!
Nice! Alright, hook’s out.
Okay, let’s get it back. Tail him back in. Hold this. Ready? Be careful, be careful! Get him out there into the surf! Get him out there into the surf! Okay, #3. The 3rd fish that I would recommend this year, is during the fall/ winter time, it’s getting cold right after the summer, um, there’s a fish called the Tog, or the blackfish, this fish is pretty fun to catch, it’s honestly one of my favorite fishes to catch because the bite so frequently. [Erin laughing] Yay.
Ha ha, hey. Nice, look at that hookset! Let me see. Perfectly. Right through the cheek. Wow. The hard part about tog fishing is not getting them to bite, but getting them up, because as soon as they bite your sand flea, they’ll run themselves into-under a rock or they’ll run themselves into the coral, and snag you up. so what you really need is a fast reel and a powerful rod, a long rod that you can just yank them straight up and reel. Check out our videos. Okay, this is why I like using sand fleas. It is they are very quick, you don’t have to cut them up, you just take two of them put it on the hook one, two, you don’t need to cut it and trim it, it’s not messy, and it’s a lot quicker. Ahhh, that was very fast. Well, let’s see if they bite. Let’s see which one gets more bites. What the–? Aaargh, it snagged me up. It was quick though! See? They’re hiding–! They’re hiding in, like under rocks, basically, they see the bait, they take it, and then they run back under the rock and snag you up. Erin! That’s a big one! Come on, Brendon.
Aaaargh! Come on. Oooh! Don’t! Don’t! Don’t! Don’t! Don’t! Don’t! Don’t! Don’t! Don’t! Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop!
Okay, I’m stopping, I’m stopping. Come on! Come on! Tell me it’s still there. Still there? Uh huh. Ahhh! Don’t let him get away, man! Woahh!
Slob. Huh? Slob. Nice!
Absolute slob. That thing pulled hard, man! Absolute slob.
First hookset. I hooked it on the first bump, like you said, Gage. Look! He would have gotten you snagged but your weight broke off. So these 3 fish are just suggestions as to what you should try, I had a ton of fun catching these fish and I really think that these fish are are relatively easy to catch, you gotta put a little bit of time into it, but it’s not, it’s not something that’s impossible to do, especially if you’re on the east coast. For those of you who are international or who are from not from the east coast, um, let us know what kind of fishing you do, a lot of these fishing methods that we talk about are not just for the east coast, and they’re universal for all beaches around the world um, so just because we’re talking about a fish that you haven’t seen of heard of before, doesn’t mean the techniques will not work in fact, I think that the techniques will still work all around the world. Let us know the kinds of fishing that you like to do, are you primarily fishing on beaches? Do you fish– Where are you fishing?
