  1. Addictive Fishing love your videos keep them coming!! But I have 2 questions and it would help a lot if you could answer them please. First question what was your setup on that big rod when you caught that King fish? And my last question is I just bought a Penn battle 7000 reel for my 21st birthday, It holds 360 yd of 65 lb Braided line so that's what I have on it now. But I am not sure if that's too much can you guys give me some advice on what you think would be the best set up for this reel. Starting from what rod I should use to how heavy of line do I put on it. It would be very helpful if I can get a clear  answer from the experts thanks again.

  2. Hey captain blair, I'm a big fan so I was wandering if you Have you ever fished for redfish in Sarasota bay?

  3. hi blair im a huge fan of u I wanted to ask what bait do you use other than finger mullet to catch flounder

  4. They don't let you keep but 2 anymore after you spend ton of money on fuel. The fishing
    is not worth the cost anymore. Just go to the fish market and get it for less.

  5. Hi Blair i am from India and just love all u r Videos unfortunately dicks sporting goods do not ship to india will like to have a few Rod and Reels and some they are just Amazing. 

  6. i once went on a private charter like this in hilton head for my b day, me and my dad are fishing fanatics, and my dad caught a two foot wide ray and as he was pulling that in, i hooked and landed a four and a half fifteen lb bonnet head shark

  7. Hi, I'm going to Sarasota Florida to go deep sea fishing for the first time ever and I want to know any tips and tricks I'm really nervous because I know it's going to be an awesome experience.
