Are you ready? [Erin:] Yeah, I’m ready. *wind blowing* Ha, ha, ha! [Tommy:] It’s nice and heated in there. [Pete:] Well, you’re not going to have wind in here, but but the heater–it was warm in here, my heater– I just cycled it back out, see–hopefully, it clears up. I don’t use it, but I just got it so I have to try it out. [Brendon:] Imagine your kayak out on here. [Tommy:] Yeah, I know!
No! Ha ha ha, I’m not taking my kayak.
[Erin laughing] [Erin:] Bye.
[Tommy:] Today is a day you stay home. Or you go fish a lake or something. [Pete:] See, the wind is blowing right into here, put that on the floor.
[All exclaiming] [Brendon] Look at the horizon, look at the horizon, okay? I don’t want you to get sick. (Laughing) Oh, my goodness! [Pete:] It’s blowing straight into this little inlet, here. So that’s why that’s going…. –And then we just go–the power plant’s right down there, not that thing way down, but right there. It’s close. So, the good thing is, if we, uh, you know, if it’s too [email protected]#y out, it’s easy to get back. (all laughing nervously) [Wow.] [Pete:] That’s it right there, oh that’s it. It’s not far. Ha ha ha, hang on. There, we’re starting to see the flow. The flow is way in there. But um, you know, I’m not even going to…. There’s also a shoal, right in there, it kind of kicks up the waves just off of it. *speaking indistinctly* We are in Calvert County, Maryland, on–
[Erin:] Walley Pete’s boat. Yup. [Erin:] Captain Walleye Pete.
Captain Pete’s going to put us on some stripers today and we’re going to be jigging, the waves are freakin’ nuts today, there–there’s very big fish under us. I hope I don’t get sea sick, I didn’t wear a patch, Erin, do you get sea sick? I’ve gotten sea sick once before, but, like, I-I don’t go on many boats in general, so I guess we’ll just have to find out. Okay, so today’s going to be mostly fishing, I’m not going to be talking so much, not too much tutorial, uh, here with Tommy Tek, Tommy Tek Outdoors
[Tommy:] Hey, what’s up, guys? He’s gonna–we met a couple weeks ago,
[Yup.] he invited out on the charter, and, uh, hopefully we’re all going to get on some fish today. So, we’re also here with Cambo Trout, which, um, he has a YouTube channel as well, –I didn’t realize that everyone here had a YouTube channel. (All laughing) YouTube fishing trip.
[Pete:] Well, I have a channel but I’m not active. (All laughing) I pull it up, once in a while. So, if you guys want to follow all of us, this is Tommy Tek Outdoors, we’ve got Cambo–
[Erin:] Trout. Cambo Trout, and uh–
[Pete:] Walleye Pete 1. –and Walleye Pete.
[Pete:] –1. [Erin:] Boat full of YouTubers. Boat full of YouTubers! So we’ve got 3oz jig heads on these big, huge baits. These huge, like, I think this must be like a 10-inch fluke right here, and we’re doing some light tackle fishing, meaning– I’ve got, like,
[mother nature dictates…] on one of my rods I’ve got 10lb. braid, and 30lb. leader line, now we’re going after fish that are 30+ inches, that’s what we’re targeting, hopefully, we’ll hit some. um, but, you never know. The water conditions right here are pretty frikkin nuts. Ha ha ha ha
[Erin:] Yeah. I’m like, flying out of the air every 2 seconds–
[Erin:] It’s like, literally like riding a roller coaster to go fishing. Yeah. Oh! Alright. Here you go, before I forget. [Tommy:] Oh, awesome.
Some of the squid. [Yeah.] Try that out. For some perch, I think it will work for some perch. [Yeah,] For sure. [I wanna try and do some blue cat.] Blue cats? Oh yeah, oh yeah.
[Yeah, I think that will be good.] So, we’ve got this salted squid bait that we’ve been making, that, um, has been ca–Woah!! My goodness. @#$%! (laughing) That was crazy. If you guys want to try some of our salted squid bait, check in the link in the description below, we’ve got some sample bags out, to anyone who wants to try it. Um, so far, what has been caught with it is, um, bluefish, jack, um–[Erin: Grouper.] gr–oh, a nice gag grouper, catfish, bunch of different kinds of bait fish, but we’re trying to see what it catches. So if you want to try some of the salt squid for yourself, check the link in the description below. [Pete:] Go ahead, Tommy. [Tommy:] Okay. *boat squeaking, banging* [Erin:] Oh, my goodness.
[Pete:] Hey, there’s fish. They’re thick, man! It’s thick! 8 feet thick. [Erin:] Oh, my goodness. [Cambo Trout] It’s better than last time.
[Pete:] It’s got good head shake, okay, [Pete:] Be very careful landing that fish! [Yup.] [Pete:] –And don’t break the pole! Don’t just sling him, you gotta get that leader in your hand. [Cambo Trout:] Gotacha. Better than last time. [Brendon:] Nice. [Tommy:] That’s a nice one. [Erin:] He’s got the leader… [Brendon:] Nice first fish!
[Cambo Trout:] There she is! [Tommy:] That’s a nice fatty. [Cambo Trout:] Woah, woah, let me get down, let me get down, there we go. Ha ha ha,
[Erin:] Nice. [Cambo Trout:] Ah, there she is,
[Pete:] A lil’ fatty? [Cambo:] Yeah, that’s a well-fed fish, either that or full of eggs, alright girl. [Erin:] Nice. [Tommy:] This is crazy. [Cambo Trout:] Whenever we stop, I’m casting upstream probably about 50 feet or so,
[Brendon:] Uh huh. I let it, I let it fall until I’m sure what’s the bottom,
[Uh huh.] and then just–
[Brendon:] Short jigs? Short–? Just short pops.
[Brendon:] Gotcha. [Get something?] I think I’m on a rock. [Oh, a rock?] [Pete:] Snagged?
[Pete:] Just hold the spool and break it. [Tommy:] Yeah, just keep your rod straight and hold the reel. Got it. [Pete:] We gotta go with a 10-incher on this, too, did you have a 10″ on? [Brendon:] I’m not sure. [Pete:] Okay, well you’re getting one, we have to go with 10″. Okay.
[Somebody’s gotta have a 10″ on.] Okay, okay. [And that’s like an anchor,] [that should get down there.] So that’s the flow right there, to our left, correct? [Yeah.] So just cast it in to that… [No.] [O, oh, oh, wait, wait, wait, well yeah, you see, the strongest current–]
Is that where I should be aiming? the strongest current is where we’re slinging to. If you can, I mean, Where’s the….? um, yeah, when I stop the boat like this, I’m getting the boat– there’s the current, right, straight across from us here,
[Mhmm.] upstream a bit, you don’t cut a whole bunch of line out, you’ve gotta maintain a snug line and then as the current is ripping it down and it’s sinking because it’s heavyass lead, you’ve got to maintain a snug line, and once you detect bottom–boom, you got the bottom, you might have to open the bail, close the bail, keep working it, open the bail, close the bail,
[Keep working the bottom…] work it. If you’re not at the bottom you won’t catch anything. Got it.
You’ll just be small. Yeah, this situation, you’ve gotta be at the bottom. But if you—it’s a fine line between the bottom and getting snagged! Right. I just got snagged.
–Yeah. so, did you cast way upstream?I mean, where’d you throw? I cast up, I cast— If you cast up and then it sweeps down, and you’re not tight lining it–
[Brendon:] I didn’t have it snug, I’ve just got to keep it snug the whole time. Yeah, but even if you’re way upstream though, it’s still going to get snagged. The idea is to get bottom when you’re straight out to the side.
Okay. Gotcha, thank you. [Erin:] Oh, I’m sorry if I’m in your way. [Tommy:] That’s a 40-incher over there. You’re on? Oh, moving? Are they anchoring? [Cambo Trout:] No, they’re just, uh, No one’s anchoring, everyone’s just drifting?
[Tommy:] Yeah, it’d be kind of dangerous to anchor here. Yeah… He said I gotta throw the big one on here. [Yeah.] He said someone’s gotta do it. You’re bout–your battery’s about to die. [Oh, yeah?] Uh huh. [Well, good thing I have another one, I guess.] [Brendon:] Oh mine’s a small one.
[Pete:] Yours is off, isn’t it? [Brendon:] No, mine’s on. [Cambo Trout:] Oh, a little better, a little better. Alright. There you go! It’s a small one. [Pete:] I got it, I’ll take it. Oh yours looks nice, man. [Yeah it feels a lot better, a lot better.] [Pete:] And that’s a light stick, that’s a Steve Fogel light stick. I just had him make me that one, it’s a prototype, to see if I like them or not. [Cambo Trout:] I’m not horsing this one.
[Pete:] No, take your time, man. [Pete:] How far out in the flow were you? [Cambo:] Uh, probably about 40 feet, 30-40 feet out to the side.
[Pete:] Not too far, okay.] Oh yeah, that’s a big girl.
[Brendon:] Oh, nice! [Cambo:] Come on, big girl. Come on big girl! Come on… [Pete:] I’ll get you buddy. Alright, get me four feet from the tip of your rod to the water. [Pete:] Not your PB but it’s not horrible.
[Cambo:] Nah, it’s a good fish. and got her! Yeah! [Erin:] Wow! [Cambo:] Alright, big girl! That’s kiss-worthy. Alright, she’s in.
[Good job, man.]
[Awesome.] Whoo! Now you guys are getting ’em. Next. Let’s turn this around. Okay, hang on. Go ahead! We’re marking! We’re marking good! [We’ve gotta get it out there.] Oh my god, oh yeah, good marks, fellas! We’ve gotta catch something here. Look at that! [Brendon:] They’re in there, they’re in there for sure. [Nice one?] Eh, okay. Not a big one. Not bad, oh nice. [Oh, do you want a shot?]
[No, you’re good… Beautiful.] Are you feeling sick? Sea sick? Keep looking at the horizon, don’t even mess with the camera anymore. My stomach… my stomach is definitely turning. Not feeling so hot. So, unfortunately, I’m the reason that we’re gonna… cut this–the trip short.
–The fish were gone anyways, it’s fine. Well the– it was pretty crazy out there today. So… at least everyone caught some fish. Yeah. That was a great time.
Yeah. Thank you Walleye Pete. Thank you Tommy Tek. [You’re welcome.] (laughing) I think we did great for the conditions that we were fishing, really windy, really choppy, landed a big fish, landed another decent size fish, I landed a dink but whatever, I’m here just— here to see everything, ha ha ha [Pete:] I would love to have them see it when it’s good. [Tommy:] I know.
[Pete:] You know what I mean? This sea is ridiculous.
Yeah. This is not very far from me, I would, I would definitely come back. Yeah. [Pete:] Yeah, I live 60 seconds from the marina. You do?
Yeah. Oh…. I’ve got to live closer to water.
