Thanks for watching today episode folks. Not the hottest joint on the block but there is still some good knowledge mentioned in this short vid. Apply these tips on your local lakes and rivers. I can almost guarantee you will find success. Just a little heads up to all you special folk out there reading this I will be ice fishing 3 days straight this weekend WHICH MEANS…I should have a few more ice videos up. If not, it means I lost all my ice fishing mojo and I’m selling all my gear. Thanks for watching and as always keep fishing, never stop.

Patrick Sommer says:

As far as the hooks go, I personally don’t see the need to change them out unless you notice a certain brand that are just crappy. I used a strike king red eye shad with factory hooks, I hooked a 24.5 pound carp on the tail and it peeled drag out (with a pretty tight drag) and once I got him in and landed him I checked the hooks out and the one hook that hooked the tail was bent a little bit. Considering how big the fish was and how hard he fought, I would consider that adequate
