Chris Weathers

To add to your point about how we used to fish back in the day, those techniques still work and honestly will probably work better than some of today's techniques. The reason I say this is think about it fishing evolved to what it is becuase someone had the urge to show the fish something they have never seen, and then it takes off and the next thing you know everyone is using it. Fish get used to seeing that done over and over. And I honestly believe trying an old way that noone is using anymore would fool the fish into biting becuase they arent used to seeing that. I mean just for an example the whopper plopper kinda replaced the devils horse and torpedo lure, and now everyone is throwing a whopper plopper, and I bet you if you get in a pressured spot where everyone is throwing a plopper and you threw out an old devils horse or torpedo, you could catch those fish that others think just arent there anymore.

Hey Scott, thank you for doing your best to create content. We have all come to you at different times. what we are missing is the same thing you are missing... Fishing.... Try doing a compliation of Stupid stuff you've done... or tournament winning or significant fish you have caught. Your favorite things recorded that you enjoy watching still. The things and vids of fishing is what we want to see, even if you've put it out previously. You're pretty enough but we like the looks of fish better haha. Thanks Scott. Was trying to get o Okeechobee this past weekend but wife put the smack down on me. I'll be up to Martins Dock and Marina asap. Thanks.

The annual flu is 5 TIMES deadlier than the Coronavirus. Funny how they don't call the flu "a world-wide crisis". Do your research folks & stop believing the mainstream media & govt. I'm not going to go into it here, but anyone can do simple searches to get the facts that are being withheld from the people, and replaced with sensationalism......and they're doing it all for a sinister reason.
