Using small Fish to Catch BIG FISH! Live-Line Tutorial!
What’s going on guys? Today I’m going to show you how to catch a small fish and use that small fish to catch a big fish It’s called live lining. I’m gonna show you how to do it today Basically what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna drop this down just sit and wait for a fish So this is the first part this is the first step is to catch the bait What you’re gonna need is a small sinker light line and a high-low rig You’re gonna need to tie a high low rig with a small hook This is a perfect setup for a little bait fish now little bait fish get eaten by big fish and that’s our objective today is to start by catching the small fish and end up with a big fish and I’m here with Erin, my girlfriend, my love and what are you using? You’re using the– oh using the same setup as I just talked about so we’re just gonna drop it into the water Sit and wait [Erin:] Ooh, I got a bite instantly [Erin:] Oh my gosh… [Brendon:] Is it biting it? [Erin:] Like, instantly, [Brendon:] There we go. That’s a nice one.
[Erin:] Ooh! [Brendon:] What it–? whoa! oh my god bring it up , bring it up
[Erin:] Oh… my….gosh [Erin] Woah! [Brendon:] Holy crap
[Erin laughing] [Erin] It’s on the side.
[Brendon:] Holy crap! Erin, that is a WoW and let me tell you guys this is not beginner’s luck because she does this time and time again Good job, Erin. This is too big for bait. But this is this is a really good size eating fish.
[Erin] Yeah I will not eat this because it comes from this water and I don’t I don’t trust this water But that is a nice-sized perch. Give me your hand compare it to your hand size Wow Nice, Erin. Good job. This is this is way too big for bait. So it’s time to let this guy go You got one? Oh, it’s on
[Erin] Ummm…. It’s not? [Erin] Yeah, it is, it is. Ooh…
[Brendon:] It’s on, it’s on. Nice. Perfect That’s the perfect size right there Except let’s go for some spot I want to catch some spot That’s a good size though, this will be engulfed pretty easily [Brendon:] Nice, Erin [Brendon:] Great bait size. [Brendon:] Bite sized perch [Brendon:] Time to put these baits to the test Going to open water, going to some deeper spots right now Hopefully, that’s where some- some rock fish are stacked Where’s my dad… Wur ma de You have a live one on? [Senko Dad:] No, no… Dead? I’m putting a live [Senko Dad] There’s no spot, I’d rather have–!! Oh! I got him! [Brendon:] Nice!!! You got him, Dad? Nice. Dad. what do you think it is? Rockfish? [Dad yelling]
[Brendon:] is it? Nice, Dad. On a little piece of cut bait? [Senko Dad] Yeah That’s a nice one Nice catch, Dad.
[Senko Dad] Thank you [Erin] So Brendon cut up one of those perch for me So that… I can put out some cut bait I’m going to start with a small piece just to try it, because I don’t…. I’ve never tried this before… [Brendon screams] Ahh!!
[Erin:] Brendon? [grunts] [screams] Aaaahh!! [Erin] Brendon? Bite? You got a bite? Oh, she’s on, she’s on one! That is a huge perch!! On a cut piece of perch! [Senko Dad and Erin exclaiming] Ohh! Aww! [laughing]
[Erin] That was big… That was a nice one, Erin! That was dinner, you lost it.
[Erin] That was disgusting dinner. [Brendon:] This is another small one smm—shhhh–Shoot! It’s gone! [Erin:] You lost it? [Brendon:] Yeah… [Erin] Sad…. All right, I’ll go for a bigger one then So hook it right above the shoulder Just like that Make sure it’s still lively. Yep. It’s very lively [Erin] Very lively… And then we’re gonna cast it out! ~Gently~ cast it out [Erin] Loft it. [Brendon:] Loooft it
[Erin] Loft it. [Brendon:] loft it
[Erin] i loft it! And then let it– give us some line to swim out and what you got to do is watch your line Watch where this fish is swimming if it’s swimming very erratically there might be something chasing it. Oh, oh, oh, oh! I’m gonna let it swallow it. I’ll let it swallow it. So when it’s when it’s running like that, let it swallow it [Erin] You on? Yep, I’m on That’s a rock that’s a rock look it’s moving back and forth on the surface [Erin] Oh
[Brendon] Ooh! On the whole fish! It ate the whole fish! Oh, no, there it is… I want my fish back… There we go. Look at that small fish to big fish Cool this is still a small schoolie. I want a bigger one You know a fish is biting it when your line is starting to move out or move in really quickly What you got to do is do not set the hook right away Give it a second to actually engulf the fish so that it’s in its mouth. A lot of times It’ll hit it and it’ll short strike it and the hook is not fully in its mouth If you set the hook, you’ll lose the fish. So what you got to do is have patience and wait for it to swallow it Control that adrenaline and keep in mind, you’ve gotta- You’ve got to wait a few seconds before you set the hook All right guys, see, it’s a pretty simple method but it definitely requires practice to master So I want you guys–I want to challenge you guys go out, catch some bait Hook the whole bait, live line it, see what you catch. It’s really fun This is one of my favorite methods to catch fish is to catch the live bait hook it up. Throw it out I just think it’s gonna be more successful than a lure a lure will definitely work But don’t you think a big fish will prefer a real fish over a lure?
