Catch Big fish from ANY beach: Live Line Beach Fishing Tutorial


What’s going on, guys? Today, we’re at the beach in Florida and I want to show you guys a simple way to start catching big fish off the beach. Stay tuned! [Erin] You on? [Brendon’s Dad] Here, let me.
[Brendon] No, no, it’s gone. [Brendon] No it’s not. [Erin] It is or it isn’t? No, it’s not, here. [Erin] Woah. [Erin] Let me see. Oh, my. Something with teeth… [Brendon] Oooh, looks like a shark, huh? [Dad] *grunts* I don’t know. [Brendon] Woah! Something hit that hard! We’re going to be talking about the simplest, most effective way to catch big fish on the beach, and this is for any kind of beginners who really want to start learning how to catch bigger fish on the beach, if you’re tired of catching smaller fish and you want to go for something bigger, maybe a shark, maybe a snook–something bigger, um, listen to these tips and, hopefully, I can help you out. Now, we might not catch a big game fish today, but the same principle will apply, I’m going to show you the rigs, and the different baits that I like to use, to improve my chances of catching a big fish. So, the first thing I want to talk about: using live bait. Get yourself some–some baitfish around this big, depending on where you are, it might be shad, it might be a bunker, it might be pinfish, it might be pigfish, whatever bait runs in your area, get some of those, live, in a bucket and bring that to the beach. [Erin] We caught these earlier. [Brendon] Yeah, we caught these earlier. [Erin] Don’t get your sleeve wet. [Brendon] Too late. [Erin] Ew. Alright. These are pinfish. These are really good bait here. I’ve got 50lb. flourocarbon on here with a circle hook, 5 ft. of leader, and then a 5oz. sinker, just to keep that fish in one spot…
[Uh huh] and it doesn’t get much easier than this. I hook it right here, above the shoulder, –that, just barely hooking it, like that. [Erin] Yeah.
[Brendon] Right? [Erin] Ooh! [Erin] Come on! [Erin] Alright, there. Come on. [Erin] Bluefish. [Brendon] Woohoo! Bluefish!
[Erin] Woah! [Brendon] On a live bait!
[Erin] Wow, that’s nice! [Brendon] Live pinfish!
[Erin] That must have been what took your Dad’s earlier, with the huge teeth! [Brendon] Yeah! It jumped out of the water earlier! Oh, look at that! [What?] It got attacked by something else!
[Woah.] That was almost too easy! [Oh!] [Brendon!] [Brendon!] What?
[Something just took your drag!] Er–! Last second jack! [Jack!] It took my sinker somehow. [Sinker!?] [You mean it swallowed your sinker?]
Yes! Alright, this is also really good bait, if I- if I hooked up this guy, and cast this out, that’s what you use to catch a big shark, however, my line right there is not enought to– to–I don’t think I’ll be able to land a shark with this- this set up right here. Erin! Nevermind. Woah!
[Oh my goodness.] Something tore it up.
[Alright. Oh my.] Probably a bluefish. [Look at that…] -and look, this is a problem: it gets hooked into itself like this. [Wait, let me see, oh my.]
See that? [Oh, woah!] [Oh!] [Doubled up!] [We doubled up!] [Brendon] Oh, no, fish off. [What happened?] [Oh, crossed.] [Alright, what have we got?] Blue.
Oh! [Alright, alright.] [What happened to your fish, Brendon?] My fish is fine. See? You do not need to use live bait, you can use cut bait. [Oh.]
A big chunk of cut bait, that will work well. That’s a nice-sized blue. [Yeah]
Good job.
[Brendon’s Dad] Thank you. [Beautiful!] [Nice.] [–and you caught this on the cut bait, right?] Yeah. So, yes. They actually do well on cut bait. [Yeah?]
Yes. I’m going to let him go.
[Alright.] So, if you are out of live fish or you can’t–you don’t have access to live fish, or you don’t want to use live fish, a better option if fresh-cut fish, whether it’s cut off head, a filet of it, a steak of it, slap that bad boy on a hook and cast it out, the bigger the piece, the bigger the fish, most of the time. Comment below, what are your experiences? Um, do you guys like using live bait? Do you guys like using cut bait? What kind of stuff do you like to use at the beach? And what have you tried? [Brendon’s Dad] Oh! [Brendon’s Mom] Oh! Woah, woah!
[Erin] Ohh! [Brendon’s mom] Woah!
[Brendon] Erin! [Erin] I’m coming! [Brendon!]
[Brendon] Dad! Get the drag set! Gone? [Brendon’s Dad] No, too light. [Erin] No! [Brendon] It’s off? Gone? [Erin] Oh! That made my heart jump!
[Brendon] I should do cut bait. [Erin] You should do cut bait?
Mhmm. He’s using cut bait, I’m using live bait… I’ve got cut bait on now. Same fish, cut in half. [Brendon’s mom] Oh, Brendon! [Erin] On it, she’s on it. [Oh, he’s on it, he’s on it!] [Brendon’s mom] Got it! [Erin] Yes! and it’s all thanks to your mom! Here, Erin! Take over, take over! [Okay, okay, okay!]
Set the tripod up! [Brendon’s mom laughing] Not so hard, not so hard! [Ah!] [I don’t feel it fighting anymore.] [It might just be the weight!] Bring it in! Bring it in! Bring it up! Bring it up! Niii–ha-ha-hiiice, Erin! Yup.
[Brendon’s mom] Is this a bluefish? [Erin] Yah. Get your polaroid.
[Erin] That was fun. Get your polaroid.
[Okay, it’s in my backpack, hold thi-hold the rod.] Okay. So for anyone who hasn’t seen a bluefish before, they’ve got really gnarly teeth, I don’t know if you can see, I’m not sticking my hand anywhere near that, but it’s like a saltwater piranha.
[Yeah, you saw earlier how it was ripping up the fish.] and these fish travel in a lot- in a big school, all around the same, similar size. [Ha-hey!] [Alright, alright] [Ha ha!] Woohoohoo! Rod up high.
[Whaa!!] [Oh my god–!] Woah! Work your muscles, girl! Work your muscles! Come on! Get it up high! Put this in between your legs. Okay? Now, crank it up, like this. Woah! When you’re fighting a big fish, make sure your drag is set correctly. You don’t need to horse it in, you need to fight it with the waves, if the waves are pulling you out, don’t fight it. Let it go out for a second. Woah, woah, woah, right here! It looks like your tip is going right there. [Woahhh ha ha ha!]
I got it! Oh my goodness!
Woah! Wow, he’s very strong!
[Okay!] [What is it?]
I don’t know! [Ha ha!]
Oh my god! My first fish. Ha ha ha! [Alright, wow! That’s pretty big!] Wow.
[Nice job.]
That’s a nice size. [That is a bluefish.] It took the hook? Here, I got it. [They’re so pretty, blue and green.] That’s why they’re called blues. Always–you always check the line after every time you catch a blue fish [Uh huh]
If it has any kind of little thingy, you think that it has a little kink or anything, [If it gets frayed, or–]
Yeah, you ned to check your line. [Always check your line.] The noseeums are GET-TING ME. AAArrghh!

  1. Wow.. how i wish i have a fishing rod and reel .. i only do hand fishing. And those fish you guys catches are really big compare to what we have here in the philippines. We would have already cooked it if its was here.

  2. Id love to meet you man and do some salt water fishing. My dream is to catch something big out the ocean just never have luck :/

  3. I always use fresh cut bait. I'd like to see a video of you using live bait with no sinker and let it swim out and see what happens.

  4. Good tutorial. Great fun vids! One comment, lesson especially for beginners. I see you do it but not narrate on it. You keep a touch on the spool as the braid is going out and as you walk back to the beach. We do it to keep the birds nests away? You might mention this for the rookies…save them some frustration.

  5. Hey guys been watching to your videos I really like how you give detail explanation of how everything thanks for the Goode work so looking forward in joining your Facebook page!!

  6. And what you guys call blue fish we over here in South Africa we call them blue shad! They take on lures mainly sliver spoon or something shiny even live bait & even smaller shad so they very aggressive and look to feed.. to be honest here when you got a shoal like that here in S.A some of the guys or anglers should I say us bait such as fresh orange peel and works as Goode as the lure just the the orange peel gets eatn up!! Crazy but very true!!

  7. The Bluefish in your country is called Shad or Elf in South Africa, Mostly caught on whole Sardine or on spoons.

  8. What I do is I run for rods and put to live whatever I can access that day then to cut bait that’s what I do I caught a 5 foot shark the other day

  9. Love these videos. I just moved to Florida and realize I have sooo much to learn. I def need to find a few fishing friends like yall. Keep making vids. Im learnin.

  10. Would it work on the pier? i have never seen anyone getting anything bigger than a mackerel on the pier.

  11. Where in destin can I go beach fishing because there are som many people it’s dangerous you know

  12. Dude, Ur channel is awesome. I've never seen a better channel on " how too " fishing on pier or surf fishing as good as yours.. Tks again pal.

  13. good video bro goin fishing wit my gril tomorow here in florida hopefully we have a great fishing day

  14. Why are his sand spikes on a slight angle vs being vertical? Looks like he came pretty close to loosing a pole at 7:08.

  15. Love the passion you have for fishing. Going to Isle of Palms tomorrow and I haven't surf fished in 20 years but I have my rig and tackle ready to go so I can rekindle an old love! Thanks for a great refresher, you guys are great!

  16. we got to the beach after all bait shops were closed, so bought some rainbow trout heads on, they worked great

  17. YOUR INSTRUCTION AND EXPLANATION IS GREAT, YOUR EDITING IS JAM UP AS WELL, PDF'S ARE SO PRO LOOKING, THIS IS THE WAY YOU TEACH A CLASS ON SURF FISHING, I HAVE ALSO USED SPIDER WEIGHTS AND I HAVE A BUDDY THAT RUNS LINES OUT WITH JET SKI'S.  A LOT OF FUN.

  18. Only get to the beach about 2 times a year. I live in tn. Love surf fishing and trying to put together something for mainly surf. But including pier and jetty. Nothing offshore. Looking at pairing a 10ft med rod with a Penn battle 5k.

  19. I used a baby live croaker not expecting to catch any thing then I got huge bite and pulled in my first black tip

  20. Hi, you post good videos to learn fishing techniques, but I stay In India at Mumbai where the fishing locations are full of stone rubbles and stones where even the first cast is stuck and every time I loose atleast 10 to 15 hooks with the sinkers, can you please show some technique due to which I can get good catch without my loss of sinkers. I tried floaters also but it come to one side due to the waves

  21. Hi, still watching, but what size circle hook would you use with these bigger baitfish? – thanks for the great tutorial!

  22. could of used a live liner . Blues are eating machines. Go to NJ or new england in late august go out on a boat watch your fingers.

  23. Hello. Great video. I am going surf fishing in Maine next month. Doesn’t look like you need to cast way out there. Is that accurate? I am a newbie and thought I would have to cast it out a country mile. Thank you for anyone’s input.

  24. Been surf fishing about once a year for the last 20 or so. Really enjoyed your video! Learned a couple things.

  25. You guys are awesome. We just moved to Florida and my 11 yr old son is obsessed with learning to fish the beaches. Your videos are awesome. Thank you for being family friendly and informative! If you know of any groups that do fishing lessons please let us know as we have been trying to find someone to give us a crash course in person.

  26. Your videos are fantastic. The reason why is you are actually giving people something. You explain what you are doing. A lot of others youtube channels are just like, watch me reel in this big fish and don't explain anything. Where are you fishing out of most often?

  27. ok one thing you hardly mention is what line and weight are you using when u fishing on the beach , in terms of line number and weight in onces.

  28. I'm in a state of "envy frenzy" here in s.c. Going to a Charleston beach soon! Love my subscription!!

  29. What beach is that? Going to try up in Ormond beach tomorrow morning. Just castnetted some live mullet..will see.

  30. Hi Mate ,
    A couple of tips on beach 🏖 fishing 🎣..When chunking use a #19 rubber band . Attach it to the shank and pertaining to the first two cuts after the head wrap the band around the piece in a 12/6–9/3 attitude..This will help to keep the guts intact and function as a chum slick on the bottom out there somewhere..
    When live lining There is a washer type (not metal) like a rubber band with a very small hole so that when you place it on the hook it will take hold and not move ..Placed on either side of the 🐠 fishes body it will tend to captivate the fish and not shift on the shank of the hook..Hope this helps..Tight lines .

  31. Hi again ,
    I’m really excited about using your salty squids on my sabiki rigs fishing for Mackerel in the CCC and for Porgies off the beach in RI ..I saw your video on how you prepare your Squid 🦑 for salt..WE APPRECIATE all your hard work Was that your grandma? She is a tiger..Bet she taught you everything you know .LOL

  32. 1st Live, then fresh, then frozen. Also salted Clam, finger Mullet live, fresh or frozen, lures also, OC, NJ

  33. Caught my first flounder at the coast in Texas! Channel fishing, used shrimp with 3 oz weight on braid. You guys are awesome.
