I don't like using those "pin" style weights they end up cutting my P-line. So I take pliers and open that wire up to prevent that. I tie it on like a normal hook. Suggestions ?

How to catch a little bass... yeah, but I've watched you now for a while. You are having a lot of fun, and I am as well watching your videos. Thanks Scott. I appreciate the tutorial on the knots and placement of the hook in the lure. Everything is at least a refresher for me, and I'm glad I found your channel.

Scott, could you add one more part to this video series. New anglers will not know what the bite feels like on different baits. Could you you describe how the bite feels in these videos?

Next bait you should do is LiveTargets baitball or notorious pumpkin seed/ blue gill. The baitball i haven’t been able to get them on but the blue gill looks to real to not get bit. Would love to see a review and hear you thoughts. God Bless Scott!

Have you ever tried the VMC spin shot hooks for drop shot? I have found I like them the best cause they don’t twist my line at all.

You’re right in that fishing is hugely popular right now. Please do a video on fishing rod and don’ts and how not to be an ass. I can not even explain how many times new anglers have ruined the bite, the waters and other peoples gear because they just don’t know. Love this series!! Thank you.
