  1. we upload a preview clip before it airs on television. Once it airs on TV, we upload the full length version.

  2. My 7'6" inshore flats blue broke capt must have been a defect cause you are catching mogans with those

  3. I'm going to marathon florida keys and want to catch some yellowtail. We are staying right by the 7 mile bridge. Do you prefer the gulf or Atlantic side for snapper (yellowtail) or grouper

  4. they go that big those mangrove snapper i catch 6 inch ones and i think thats a keeper i catch am in port palacios best place ever

  5. Haven't been saltwater fishin' in almost 2 weeks and I'm due big time. And watchin' this episode has my blood pumpin' to get out there. Last time I was in the Mosquito Lagoon catchin' Trout and Reds. Been Saltwater fishin' since November 2012 and got hooked the first day and caught my first Reds at the Mosquito Lagoon 2 weeks ago. Amazing fight, catch, and beauty of the fish, all caught on D.O.A. Deadly Combo's and D.O.A. Shrimp.

  6. generally, on a moving tide, in or out. Check the charts. But also, when they're biting and, right NOW! (wish I was)

  7. hey blair, i was surf fishing today in Charleston SC, and i had wire leader onto 50lb seguar floru, but i run powerpro 50lb most of the time and it popped from stress, not the shark that was on. does that happen often with FINZ?

  8. In almost every fishing scenario it'd be in the early morning hours, from sunrise till about 10 AM. And in the late afternoon there is a feeding peek as well. Doesn't mean you can't catch fish in the middle of the day tough!

  9. can you tie braided line right to the hook.Do you have to have mono or floro for a leader.Sorry if stupid question.Just getting started with the sport.

  10. i always use fluorocarbon leader. The fish can see braid and not flouro. plus fluorocarbon has great abrasion resistance and some stretch value.

  11. Ya'll make the best fishing videos ever. If Blair ever falls off a boat, I am ready willing, and able to stand in for him. Call me.

  12. Another great show! thats a great captain that can sense another rod going off behind him while fighting a giant black grouper! Impressive!!

  13. Thanks for releasing those grouper.  It's nice to see a fishing show that actually considers the future of the very fisheries you guys depend on for amazing fishing trips/videos!  With climate change, overfishing, and pollution in play, the oceans need every big predatory fish we can get!

  14. Can not believe the spending on big boat shopping when all I needed was my lil bow rider to get me ten miles out to the fun…
    Your ride out does look nice thou!…

  15. مجانين .. يرمون الناجل ويمسكون في ابو ذيل اصفر .. الله يشفيكم

  16. Great show captain's. when i can't be on or in the water , i like to watch great fishing shows like this one. it does break my heart to throw back beautiful fish. we remember before all the rules and regs, don't we? early to bed early to rise ,fish like heck and make up lies lol…..you know how lucky you are, well part of it is luck anyway.

  17. Capt Blair, why did you leave that rod in the back left side of the screen alone at 8:25 when Capt Chris was landing the grouper? There was still a fish on there
