LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF OUR POPULAR FRESHWATER FISH, HOW TO CATCH THEM AND JUST AS IMPORTANTLY… WHAT TO DO WITH THEM ONCE YOU’VE GOT THEM! (music)>>ONE OF THE EASIEST FRESHWATER FISH TO CATCH IS THE SUNFISH, MAKING IT A GOOD STARTER FISH FOR KIDS.>>ALRIGHT! WOO-HOO!>>FOR SUNFISH BAIT, USE SMALL LIVE WORMS, HOT DOG BITS OR WHOLE KERNEL CORN.>>I CAUGHT A FISH! I CAUGHT A FISH!>>ONCE YOU CATCH A FISH, MAKE SURE YOUR HANDS ARE WET BEFORE YOU HANDLE IT. WET HANDS ARE LESS LIKELY TO DAMAGE THE FISH’S PROTECTIVE COATING. HOLD THE SUNFISH CAREFULLY UNDER THE BELLY AND REMOVE THE HOOK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. TO RELEASE A FISH, GENTLY LOWER IT IN THE WATER AND SLOWLY SWISH IT A COUPLE OF TIMES TO GET IT GOING. ANOTHER POPULAR FRESHWATER FISH FOR ANGLERS OF ALL AGES IS THE CATFISH.>>WHOA! THAT’S A CATFISH, A BIG ONE! HEY BUDDY.>>CATFISH ARE ATTRACTED TO STRONG SMELLS LIKE CHICKEN LIVER. HERE WE’RE USING A TREBLE HOOK TO KEEP IT FROM SLIPPING OFF.

THIS IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT BABY! WOO-HOO! YOU KNOW YOU GOT A GOOD DAY WHEN YOU GOT A BASS THUMB.

  1. Horrible video, the shows bad tips that won't catch that many fish. Plus, they talk about the worst techniques and then show the best ones but never talk about them. Side note, some of the fish in this look beaten up or about to die

  2. I want to enjoy fishing. I really do, but when I ALWAYS come back empty handed every single time I go, it leaves me quite discouraged. Would be nice to catch something. I don't even get a nibble most times regardless of what I'm using for bait, the type of pole I'm using, where I go, or how I have it rigged. I've read article after article on tips, techniques, etc with no success. I'm almost ready to give up on it. Seriously! Unfortunately, I can't afford a guide or I would go that route. At least then I'd come back with something. Now I know why I didn't enjoy fishing when I was younger. 🙁
