We are super excited today guys. Guys, what we're doing on fishin. Is that what we do in KVM aka lowers, daddy. Right, definitely, definitely yeah this is daddy K, um, that's that's that's what everybody calls me by Danny, my, you know, my given name name is Dang, you know for down in Mo. So, for those who know me from when I was little, my real name is Dang, but growing up into the fishing world and everything, everybody's just giving me kind of nickname, Danny. So now everybody kind of calls me daddy King for this episode we're gonna call you, Danny. Yeah works, we're super excited to have you on. I'm a seasonal fishermen, myself, I know you're pretty hardcore brand,
and you can see those to see and watch the squat, is
when his gear man is pretty inspiring and don't. Oh yeah hi I got the most by shoulders, you know, represent you know you know show our pride of you know the people you know and and showcase ourselves out there you know that we, you know, everybody kind of sees us mold people and kind of recognize us and know where we are, where we're coming from. Awesome. Awesome. So, Danielle, how do you get into bass fishing. Fishing has always been a part of my family, you know, growing up, you know from my grandparents, you know to to my uncles and you know my dad and my dad wasn't a huge fisherman. But my grandpa was and even through this. You know, he used to always take us out, you know, locally here, you know, such as like, como Lake Bailey Lake Hudson or something like that. And it kind of just the outdoor activities, such as hunting and fishing kind of just grew into us, we just kind of follow the footsteps of, you know, my dad and my uncles and my grandpa.
He first picked up a fishing rod.
Um, I would have to say probably, maybe four or five. I remember when I was like seven or eight. I used to walk. I lived in frog town I used to walk from my house to como link at the age of seven or eight back there that seemed okay. You know when you look at the age now it is a little scary but back then, you know, I used to walk down, you know, two mile track, you know with your friends go fish in a coma lake. It's always been a passion of mine, I don't know how it came about. But it was very interesting you know, because you know everybody my family did it, you know, you are located in 10,000 Lakes. Have you fished everything well. I wish I say I could but, um, I'd say around like 1000. Wow, that's a fair number ready. Yeah. There's a good time it was like 12,000 and,
something like that.
I almost got the number of Twin
City army Minnesota lakes thousand lakes. You know what, what's your favorite top three of those top three link. I would have to say. Relax, is probably the number one, just just because it has
a very good fishery
that anybody can go there and catch fish. Um, my second, I would have to say is, Lake Minnetonka consists of like 10 bodies of water 10 different links. And I put it up there just because it's very challenging each connecting link that is part of military has its own cool features, you know, you know such a structure to water color, you know, water color, your quality to you know everything. So every link is a challenge, you know that's connected to the top guy and that's why I put that up there you know there's still a lot of big fish in there. And with all the boulders and all the other fish in there. It's always a great challenge, and that's why I put that up there as well because when I want to challenge you know I go out there to win the, you know, to LinkedIn taco where it's a very tough, like, it's very rewarding we go find the fish. But then again, like I said, it is very challenging. My third. I would say link will cornea. That was, I put it up there. Number three goes back there with my brothers mission tournament unfold in almost 32 pounds of bass just for a fish. And that was a record for for our club back then. It's always been a great fishery before. There's a tournament. And we're able to fish it as an ESA link in one of our club. We were super excited. We did it, four years in a row I believe it was, and we won every single year. So it's you know it's one of my top leaks and I go and I recommend people to go as well. We're gonna
get back and talk about those competition
tournaments. But why is bass fishing so fun. Um, I think that's fishing is so fun just because there are so many ways of how you can how you can fish world. You could catch a striking neuron on top water. You could fish them in the middle of the water column, or you could fish them on the bottom, you know, ultimately, so I think because you can do all that. And it's one of the best, you know, fish that can can can actually relate to all three. I think that's why a lot of people go after they have this leaping ability that can, you know, they can tell themselves, you know, three, four feet out of the water, multiple times, you know, during the fight. You know when you first catch it till you get to the boat or we bring it, you know, landing on shore. And I believe. With that excitement and adrenaline, you know, everybody wants to sink in, you know, seek that out of those three striking striking. What do you like seeing the most, the best bottom Michigan or, or what I prefer top water, I love top water explosion, you know. Yeah fishing with frogs you know to me. You never know when they're gonna come out and take it and when they do take it, you know, your heart is just racing you know you're just waiting to, to set the hook and fail that big fish at the end of the line, you know, because you know that when you fish you can tap water. Nine out of 10 times it's a big fish in it because you're throwing a big frog so you know your chances of landing, or something big, you know, you know, the bigger the water pop the bigger the fish. Oh yeah, definitely. Do you get on a, I call it in the Midwest through the winters and you're on YouTube or you're on my scalp you're watching these top waters trikes and again like basketball and you're watching video and you see a toddler's tread. And when they said, I'm like sitting with them, waiting. Yeah, sometimes I get that feeling, you know, because you know you're anticipating it especially that, you know, the four or five months that you're cooked up you know yeah so you just read and get back out there and yeah you know like you said, you know, go on social media you know and and see, that's the guys from Dallas salt Ester fishing or even old videos you know and yeah it's always a great excitement you know when you're preparing yourself, you know, for the next season, you know, and it's always enjoyable you know it's like you know it's like a movie you can continuously rewatch you know over and over and over again, you know, it's just that excitement, you know, in the. Now, what kind of bait or merge do anything good to start best. Um, for starters, the easiest what I tell people is a spinner a spinner bait, or a stick bait, a stick bait is the general term but a lot of people have called it, cinco because it you know started from Gary Yamamoto. That was his line, he called that stick paint. A cinco that was his thing. Now everybody kind of refers it to as a cinco or a wacky when when they say franchise wacky it's more, you know you hook a stick bait in the middle. And when you chicken, you know, the two ends kind of just fold in and out. So that's why they call it a wacky rig because it's not really the proper way of rigging it. So that's, you know, so those two, I'd say are the most universal and the easiest to get somebody who's who's interested into starting. I got a big diesel that oh man. We're both in the Twin City here. I honestly have not out bass fishing because I just moved here like three, four or five months
when I just got my pistol license. The other day,
where can I go bass fishing. Honestly, if I'm sure if you're talking Sure, um, even though failing is really pressured lake. It has a lot of good fish that cruise to shorelines como is very under pressure, I would say go to Cobo is a lot smaller. Because you can actually jog walk and fish at the same time. And that can be said for failing as well but como will probably come late by como zoo. There will probably yield you you know give you a better opportunity of tip of tension in a multiple fish and sometimes even coordinate has had a winter kill way back then but now we're starting to recuperate. The, you know, with the proper stocking of the Minnesota DNR you know they don't have a great job of bringing you back. And so there's there's a lot of good healthy fish
in coordinate that, you know, can be caught.
I'll keep note of that. I'll definitely keep note of that.
Oh yeah, let's talk about the hooks man
for like let's say on a cinco setup.
What is a four zero hook. Is that too big of a size for that. Yeah, for art, four slash zero means slash means that's kind of how the, you know, distinguish the sizes. If it doesn't have the. So the window hooks are size that goes from like one to 32, you know, and then you know one slash whatever. So, if you're just talking. Direct numbers such as one through 1010 will be smaller, you're working your way, you know, down onto one one be bigger. And then when you put that in there. One is smaller, and you work your way up like a seven on and it becomes really big. So it's kind of confusing to a lot of people. But when you know when you forget you know like let's just see lies and stuff. They'll say, number 12. And then you look at another one it says number eight. Number eight size hook is bigger than number 12, you know, so it gets kind of confusing, but, you know, like I said as a whole number, you know, it starts from larger down to the smaller, no that's how you roll by the size of its opposite as well not. So, or odd is more for like x ray or punching, you know, flipping creature bait. Or, such as you know like I was talking about wacky rig. I would go with one slasher or whatnot. That's what they call it. I wanna is the ideal size.
But that inviting without the hook.
We're about one into spring and summer now
isn't postponed or pre spawn already.
Um, right now, it's, it's not well okay so generally in the local Twin Cities right here, it should be is postponed. You go looking for the North like an hour, two hours away, we're just at the peak of the spawn. There's still some coming in, but majority of the fish have spawn, the water Thames. In the northern lakes us at LAX, they're there around 68 degrees, the lakes around here they're more around 7475 so that you know you're sitting at the postpone or any, you know the fish are starting to move back, you know, to the desert or summer locations. Some of the other fish that spawn late, they're still. Maybe sitting there, you know, you know their babies. The babies are averaging about half an inch right now have fish in three quarters so they're, they're right at the point where they're about to abandon the babies. And you know, head back out.
The bathroom is super aggressive to chase anything out of the waters. Sometimes they won't even react to a strike even though you're single and they're just react to this won't take it and throw in there, if you're coming from a boat
from a boat.
The first thing I approach with is, is a jig. You know I throw one of my jigs, and what I do is, x, with a presentation for next meeting. I trimmed down the skirt make a little bit thinner so it's not so bulky so it's not huge, you know now throw trainer there you know such as you know, rage brawl crawfish or, you know, one of my TBL flappers you know three inch, and I keep it compact, but still big enough. And then you know I try to stay a pretty good distance you know like 20 feet if I can, you know, 2030 feet if I can. That way, you know the rule of thumb is in takers see the fish. The fish to see you, and use generally when you, when that happens, you're not going to get it. But there are ways to get it to bite you know such as irritating the fish. Finding the sweet spot on the bit that will draw that is to take them to work. There is always a sweet spot on that bet that you can get the fish to, you can entertain and agitate you know the guarding male to take your loser. Sometimes those are more like an attack, or like a attack, kind of, strike
a defensive strike does you know for example you're throwing. You're throwing something similar to a bluegill pattern right and it just, it just wants to chase off it's a it's not it's not a hunger strike it just wants a reaction strike taste off
your, your so called lower than looks like
bluegill is a curse you're trying to imitate like this it will go to come attack, it's fry. So really is just attacking bat. And that's when yeah Strikes Back, right. Oh yeah, definitely. And what is doing is, is, is trying to kill whatever is trying to attack its babies so you know, out of protection so when you throw your newer out there you know if it was just trying to chase it away or just kind of bump it you know sometimes you see this kind of bump it, but when you irritate it enough, it would actually inhale and golf maneuver, you know, in trying to kill it and then move it off the bat and spit it back out. And so if you you know want to learn a little bit you know you could you could take a plastic. Let's just say, a simple whacking word or warm and just tie it on there don't tie a hook or anything. You can throw it out to a bed, you can see it they'll grab it. Pick it up, move it off the base. You know, because they're just, they're trying to keep their bag clean try to keep the fries, you know, you know, safe, so that's that's what they do. Right, it's not even gonna hunger strike, it's just yeah protection.
Yeah, I seen you see during after the post bond Do you find it pretty hard to track them down now.
After the post on its
you resort to some response when you have a boat. I have a boat so you know I typically push off of the, you know, the shoreline of sitting depending on the lake, but on average is taking about eight to 12 feet of water. info link has good structures, such as rocks, then you look for rocks, mixed with weeds and typically these fish will, you know, congregate you know all these rocks. Given that there's there's a fish around, otherwise they will seek points. When I say points where, you know, is shallow in the papers and dropped into the water. That's like their safe haven or they can you know if there's any danger they could just drop back down at the water, you know they'll come up, you know, during the morning or at night, you know they'll feed up a shallows and then they'll come back down, you know if there's any danger. So those those are like the key areas, you know, such as you know like say when you get out in the lake and it's a brand new body of water. Look for obvious landmarks, you know like, you know, points, you know, curves and stuff around them. And so those are, you know, given you know, easy, easy spots that you can always try first. You
seem lovely describing
these bats are kind of ambush kind of fish and they sit and structure like maybe a log or for a big pile of trees or rocks my Correct, yes, yes they are they, they are some ambush fish but they they don't want to be classified as ambush fish but you know if you really look at it you know they they do hide, you know, such as in Docs or under lily pads, you know, and, you know, I think. Majority of all those fish that we face in the freshwater are ambush fish, you know, they do have to kind of protect themselves in that you know when, you know, the Forge, you know the bait fish does come through they do, you know, jump out at attack, you know, I believe they classify northern pike wars ambush fish, because they're so aggressive, you know, and that's, that's where they get their name from, you know, but bass, you know, I still consider bass as ambush fish. I mean guys has another brother of a spotted and small mouths to.
for small for spotted where I think
spotted doesn't have much of a structure, they're just kind of go whatever, whatever kind of. Now, they sit on the open of, they, they like to suspend a roll ball, you know, in the big body of the basin, what we call a basin of the knee. And then when they do, they do follow the beef fish you know such as shad herring, you know, shiners and stuff like that they don't they don't follow those big fish. And when they do come up upon this is a deep brush pile or deep boy they, they will sit there and let the big fish come in, but they are very mobile, they're kinda like bypass you know they kind of move around quite a bit, you know,
what about small mouths,
small mouth. They're, they're very tricky, they, they like very deep water. I've caught them down to 28 feet of water majority of the time they do average swimmer deeper they're about 18 to 20, you know, they're to me I think they're, they're very challenging because you have to really find the correct number to get them to commit. They will taste your lower back to the boat or to the shore, but a lot of times they will commit
their man sounds like their girlfriend was trying to ask.
Yeah, it's very tough, you know, the Somalis are are very tough when it comes to the summer bite. When you do get them the best is in the spring and the fall, that's when they're the most aggressive, you know, and versus large both large ball. They're more aggressive in the summertime because, well, they're they're aggressive throughout the year but in the summertime, it's not that hard. You know, you know, versus small balls, you know, won't they prefer colder water, you know, I get my honest opinion I feel like the small most slightly more pickier in way wants to eat versus a large mouth, almost tastes anything. Oh yeah, definitely, definitely. When you know, but then again like I said, it becomes seasonal as how these fish react but data summer, I would say large Walter easier. And then it will be spotted in slow mo
was a bass. Once you use like a baitcaster versus a spin room. A Big Cass
More so many wise, it's more of the NES presentation, it's better when you're running an S. Lighter tackle. Like, or six power line tests and little light movers like one eight ounce quarter out you know little swim baits, little creatures. Little spoons and stuff like that. When you are drop shot, you know, let's just say a drop shot you know, nine out of 10 guys who are running a spinning on drop shot, but they're, you know, as technology has evolved a lot of companies have come up with these baitcaster, these finesse bait casters where there's all you can cast Krumping newars. And it's very, you know, POM lebeau is very, you know, the it's. You could say, Um, it's more comforting you know what I mean when you when you, when you can hold a baitcaster you just have that that better grip, you know, some guys prefer this spinning group, some guys can never get away from the big cast grip and save it. But, you know, like I said, spinning. I run for both for a lot of applications. You know I've done a jig fishing with spinny I've done Texas real estate, what's the difference between real carpet monofilament and Braylon. Okay so brand is more of a, you know, like a nylon strap, you know, fabric. Class floral and mono is made up of, you know, different types of plastic mono being. Its chauffeur monofilament. It's just a plastic that has more stretch mono and braid it tend to float. Whereas floral carbon. It's a sinking line, so it's kind of like the best of both worlds. It's an in between, between a braid in a, in a mono line mono line stretches a lot more if floats, or carbon. It's a little bit stronger. So it has less stretch, but it sinks, brain, it's got the strongest, it's got those, which call it the least amount of stretch. But it's not as a brace brace of resistance as normal. Let's see if you're using a bra, would you be a pic of line, a braided line. Yeah. Like Tumblr frogs when I'm fishing in heavy covers such as you know, Slob, you know, they call that slob which is just you know thick weeds. And I would go with braid. I typically run of 50 or 65 pound braid that when you have leverage, you know, when they start to break down, you could you could force them you can bring them back out of Florida some guys use him but then your your intention goal, like 2530 pounds rural, that's a pretty big line.
I honestly don't trust it I still got
my snap. Take the winter No. Yeah, definitely. Now we got our fishing line, the other raw No. So what kind of knot would you tie up. I'm not average wouldn't normally go with most of myself as just a regular fisherman is not a lot of guys like polymer or a double Polymer. Because it's pretty quick. It's a smaller knob but it's a very strong knot, you know, you know, it's very easy not to learn. I think, Oliver nine is probably one of the easier nuts to learn, but growing up I've always read the fisherman is not always trusted that I did modify it a little bit. That way, it doesn't slip on me. So what I what I end up doing is, I'll run it through the eye twice before I run before I do, what not always you know that it doesn't slip. You mentioned earlier about testers Greg Can you kind of visually tell us how that would look like. I'm a Texas rig. What a lot of anglers do is they run like a off shank hook or a ew g hook, which at the front of the hoops you got the eye, and then it kind of bends into like a 92 kind of bends down, and then it goes back into the round bend of the hook in the point, and with a little bend no 90 degree bend by the hook I you know what that does is when you puncture the center of the plastic from the nose, and then you bring it just back just about I'd say like a quarter inch, and then you, you know, pull it through the plastic. And then once you pull it through the plastic and the eye gets to the nose of the plastic, you turn the, you turn the blessing and the hook I'm so nervous since on that little quarter inch wire on the before the 90 degree turn. And then it sits higher, and then you take the needle point. You lay straight and then you grab the plastic. You know you throw it into the hook. And you can expose it on top of the plastic bring all the way through for the bottom all the way up. And then, skin, skin. Skin hook. When you know the tip of the needle nose of the hook. That way, when you're running it through wheatgrass grass, whatever he doesn't get hooked up. So ideally, this ideally be a plastic or maybe a warm setup or grab a cup or even like you know, a pair of swim bait. You know a lot of guys wrote that as well. So, you know, there's the off shank hook and then you have your eat who you know your intervention is extra wide gap, you know, so it has a really big belly,
or plastics or movement bigger.
Those are little bit easier to text. We're versus like regular warm. It's just a string shank hook it looks kinda like a paint hook. You know we're. It's just an eye straight down and then, you know, so those those hook that like the warm hooks. They tend to have a little plastic paper closer to the eye, you know, a little hook there where it kind of helps old classical deny. And then with that type of hook. You don't expose it, you just, you know, piercing from the belly from the bottom up about halfway three quarters away. And then when the fish grabs me set the hook that actually, you know, pops through the top with that hook. Now we're about to pull away, is that needed of bodyweight is good if you're fishing. Number deeper, or if you're throwing into heavy cover and you want it to get through to the bottom of where the fish are because typically the fish are underneath. Usually when you run a Texas rig weightless, you're fishing open water, you know, scattered in we. But when you run the bullet you're trying to contact the bottom or trying to contact the weeds and make no disturbance, so you can get the fish to, you know, hear and see it, you know, come to it, to pretty much your would say you're covering really deep weeds weeded area you're punching through with the wing is going to help way it's going to help out. Well yeah definitely you know I mean, there's, you know you have ways for like one eighth out all the way up to, you know, two, three outs, you know, it all depends on the type of structure you have fishing. That area, you know, scatter weeds or you know it's rocks, you know, sand or whatever that you want, you're trying to
fish. Cool. Why shouldn't Why
should I practice customer rulings on catch and release is. It's highly pushed amongst all anglers new and old. The reason why a lot of anglers push for that, so that we can keep, keep the fishery have a body of water and a higher high quality, as well as high quality. But just strictly catch and release it can hurt a fishery, it can hurt a body, body water, because everybody does catch release. There's not enough food for the, for the predators. To maintain their size their, you know the weight and everything. And so the fish becomes stunted, you know, and they will grow because you overpopulated, you know so cancer is has has its pros and cons. But, catch and release does provide the future anglers you know like such as our kids or, you know, our youth, you know, to, to, you know, see what we're seeing what we're seeing in catchable bird catch it in the future. And mentioned earlier about spotted smallmouth and largemouth what's the difference. Um,
large bald. They as
generalizing area wise, they're more of a shallower, you know type of fish. They're more green. They have a, you know, really depth, you know defined black bar that runs through the center of them. A small mouth is more brown. They have different types of tiger stripes, or you know patterns along the side of the body, you know, on not know to wherever like, whereas large wealth. They have the same pattern spotted bass looks similar to a large mouth. but when you look on the side of the belly. You see these little black specks, you know, black patterns on the you know close to the belly, as well as their jaw line if you close your mouth the jaw line is like in the middle of there I mean most guys don't
don't distinguish it that way, you know,
a spider bass is more amorphous loop is smaller so that's that's one of the dead giveaways. But on the fishing con, how can I tell if I have a bite man. You shouldn't just not a tree or whatever it is, um, When I tell people is hook sets are free. And also, if you feel something, and then a line a little different, like you know, like if you're really in open water, and it was just very smooth right and it also, it starts to get heavy. You know it doesn't hurt to just set the hook. You know if you if you're just casting and really, if you're like, dragging it on the bottom, you know, you feel something heavy like, you know, sitting there, what I always tell other anglers I take all this and pull back a little bit. And if it pulls back. That means you got to finish. If it doesn't pull back. That means you're probably just hanging up as a weeds or rock or something. Sometimes you feel that little bump or that little, you know, they call it a tick, you know, where you're, you're lying jumps, or you're the rock to jump, you know, those are really aggressive bite you know when the bass really inhales your luer. But sometimes you don't feel anything. Sometimes it's just like really mushy you know or, you know, you just the weight is just like someone who's just slowly pulling the line away or the, the boats, moving, you know, while the currents taking your line you know that's that's that's hard, you know, kind of telling ignorance you know that's that's kind of how you distinguish between rock, you know, or weeds and the gear that that that we've been, you know, blessed to have all these great manufacturers has really excelled
upped our game for the anglers in
distinguishing bytes versus back then because back then rods were not as sensitive, so you know you really had a had a good feel for it to to understand. And, you know, catch fish now things have come a long ways you know the high modulus graph bikes and Rob manufacturers are building with. It has increased the sensitivity so we can feel everything. And now like waves or rock tails like bikes. So a lot of guys are sitting hooks on nothing you know I mean I take I take a lot of, uh, You know I tell us, as well as a woman in official woman, you know, like take them out and I try to show them, you know how this you know works and all that and. And when I'm taking them fishing like weed lines. They feel wanes, or if I'm taking a rocks they feel rocks and they're sending hook all the time you know sandbag dangling you know but you know I like to say that because that means that they're paying attention you know they're feeling stuck, you know, so it's it's it's a good laugh but you know it's also a good experience. You talk about feeling. Have you ever prank somebody let's say someone's sitting at the front of the boat, and you're coming from behind you slightly, tap the back there rod. Oh yeah what we've done there you know on some of the slower days, you know, there was half the back of though you know the rod but or. We've purposely cross their line, and you know, your line and anything like they're setting the hook. So, you know, we've done that quite a bit. Oh can I catch a big bass for sure. Oh yeah, definitely, definitely, um, you know, it's all a place right place, right time, you know, from shore, I'd say your best opportunities are like channels, connecting links
or a little bit occurred.
Or, if you can find lily pads and pads or weed. Those are your best opportunity Best Places, high percentage spots where those big fish will come in and early morning and evening, are your best windows to, you know, try to land yourself, you know, five, six, owner, you know, maybe even a same record, you know, you know, the same records at 15. a pound $17 from Minnesota so we have seen some pretty big fish in some of these natural lakes. You know that that can surpass, you know, eight, nine pounds since we're on topic about biggest bat ever caught, what is your personal biggest mass, every time. My biggest action came from California. It was a few years ago. My family we happen to go on vacation to visit you know, a family over there. And me, my wife and my son we made it a trip to go to Sacramento we were staying down in LA, and we went out, we flew out to Sacramento. I had a girlfriend out there that, you know, took us out. It was right in the April time and of the fish that I caught it actually wasn't meant to be mine I was, you know, trying to give my, you know, my son and my wife a chance to catch this big fish, you know, and I was throwing it elsewhere, all of a sudden, you know I feel like john, you know, so I just set the hook just just, you know, just to see what it was, you know, thinking maybe it was a small enough dish. And it turned out to be this 10 pound large ball that I was trying to get my wife and my son to cats. And so, you know, I mean, I don't know if it's luck or what it was but you know I'm, I'm very thankful to catch it. And it was a great fight. You get wrapped up in in some lay down, you know, we had, you know, my partner you know my friend had a stick his whole arm down there was like water you know hit a stick the neck and you know everything now there to net the fish and it was it was a great experience. I didn't mind catching it you know I like I said you know I did my wife is so beautiful I did. It's always been my passion is to, because I've learned enough already. And so, it's always been my passion to pass it on to the youth, and to the, to the ladies as well. 68 power and California or 68 is very common for California for cats, my man it's a struggle for Minnesota to make 600 maybe one or two a year but that's a struggle we're talking, you have to fish a lot just gotten 600 out of Minnesota. What's your biggest in Minnesota. My biggest Minnesota is six and a half. And then I came on a tournament as well.
That's some bragging. I had a tournament to
help and it was during a tournament. So, you know, it was a you know a very, very lucky fish. I did catch that fish, two weeks prior to the tournament. It was actually six pounders that would call. Bring fishing prior to the tournament. And we caught on both, but the other one, lost some weight, and it was 5.85, so it was, you know, just like you know pointing to the shine of, you know, another six pounds. So, yeah, I mean, bass fishing does help quite a bit. Like I said I've caught a couple of six pounders in Minnesota. But those are hard to come by. I kind of figured to my personal bests he was constant was shy was six. Yes, I think so. And we'll talk to you. Officially, I don't know how long you know it, but five and a half minutes I was six. That's a struggle already. Oh yeah, definitely it's always a. It's always a great challenge, and I say it's always a struggle. One year I did Capri fish rebate for the tournament's, they're in all is on the fox river, and I didn't see a large ball, then I would say easily pushed a nine pound crew
saw when didn't take it.
Yeah, I left it alone, because I saw it, and I left it alone. Because it was one week before tournament about let's talk about tournaments now you fish and how many companies tournaments. You want a fair amount of them have you ever played against other languages, maybe like Trevor Lowe,
