The Fish Dimension says:

These are really great beginner videos. It seems like second nature once you do it for a while, but it’s easy to forget how bad we all were when we start. Had a buddy who told me he did stuff like use huge sinkers while panfishing, lol. I, myself, had no idea what to do with most lures. I used to throw out frogs into open deep water and just reel them steadily back, lol. Vids like this are great for just showing the basics of how to start and not look like a fool. Nice work!

Gene Villarreal says:

With the in line spinners do you add a swivel to it or just the spinner to the line? Also do you fish with the spinners in rivers , lakes what works better?

kevin espina says:

nice video for a newbie here. can i shoot a question? so, when you use a spinner, you don’t need a bobber and a sinker?

jamani1086 says:

this is my kind of gear, good job zack!

Ted hill says:

So these blue fox spinners work good for bluegill?

Alex Cheney says:

Don’t get a South bend rod the reels strip easy

neffennnn says:

This dude looks like a mix of Perkz and Rekkles from League

Pastor Peewee says:

Speaking to fast so I had to rewind alot but great video nice information man

Ninja k says:

Chris Kunsak says:

fishing freak says:

I caught a 5lb smallmouth using that southbend reel on an old abu garcia i bought on a garage sale and both of them handled very well

CoolerKat 06 says:

Airsoft Jesus says:

nice video

James Pataray says:

Ugly stick is a good brand for saltwater fishing

charlesskier says:

I know you get good deals at these giant places like Walmart. I think the local mom and pop tackle shops should get some promos too.

rod whisperer says:

What walmart is that

Blake Williams says:

This video was great, and just what i needed. Just getting started fishing again now that my boys are a little older and want me to take them fishing. I feel so much better about knowing what we need to get started. Thank you so much and I love your channel.
