Look at that rod bend oh my gosh These are feisty fighters! Just for a little fish like that! Ok, th- they’re swallowing my bait They’re just engulfing it I gotta change out my hooks now Erin, I’m catching porgy nonstop I’m gonna catch a porgy and let’s fry him up! [Erin:] Alright! [Brendon:] I need a lighter sinker, first of all. So maybe I’ll do like a… [Erin:] One ounce? [Brendon:] Yeah! That was too heavy, O.D. That bacon smells really good! [Erin:] Do you want a piece?

It’s all I wanna do with the- for the rest of my days. Ok, here’s the rig I’m using It’s just a single hooked rig with the, with the hook in the middle, sinker on the bottom And this is the easiest kind of beach fishing I know of The kind where you just go out and cast it out and you catch fish pretty much instantly Alright, fire up the grill! I’m comin’ back with a fish. I changed it to half an ounce now Where have you casted? In the middle? I wanna try over here I’ve taken my deeper here before and my fish finder And, and marked that this is like 20 some feet right out by the boat right there This is more like 18 feet right here Ok, they’re not biting it like this I think I’m gonna switch hook size oh yeah! That’s too small We need a little bit bigger than that Oh! That one’s better That’s still small though Throw this one away I got a little piece of bait like this off A little piece of the Squidy Bits And there’s been like three or four fish already I have smaller hooks, you want one? They’re in here Let me see No, those aren’t too small. But, circle hook, I don’t know You know, I never caught ’em on circle hook Circle hooks are for fish that run with it I’m on a fish! [Uncle Bill says something] [Brendon:] Yea, it got off As soon as I downsized that hook, man As soon as I did that and downsized my bait, I’m getting bites again. They wouldn’t even touch it before! Ok, I’m gonna go eat real quick As soon as I say I’m bringing a fish up to eat, They’re gone What’d you make? *gasp* oh my goodness! Oh my god, that looks so good! This is the fresh french bread, right? [Erin:] Mhm [Brendon:] cheers MMM Oh that’s really good Oh yea I had a fish the whole time! Wow! Swallowed it again I can’t help it that my bait’s so tasty There we go! They’re a little higher up in the water. The other one, I had the hooks pretty low This is a nice one Hopefully a better eating-size one I mean this, it’s a fun fight. Look at that My rod’s going all over the place oh, this is a nice one This is a nice one! That’s better eating *laughs* oh my god, that was funny ok, somehow I just lost my hook…and I caught a shell But, this is good bait So, I will use some of this as bait right here Look at that That’s perfect, I’m gonna use that There we go Oh my gosh, I got another one!
