BY VISIT KINGSPORT TENNESSEE. (MUSIC) (Outside Sounds) (BRIAN) I’m not going to run
all over this because there’s a bunch of fish here
or there has been and if they’re not out, they’re up
there probably in six, eight feet of water. (NATHAN) Man, they’re full. (BRIAN) Yeah. It’s the TVA, they’re serious
about their flood control. See right there. Not a whole bunch but there’s
some down there already. (Outside sounds) (BRIAN) Yeah, these Zboss,
I’ve been, for the last couple of years I’ve been
trying them, and I like them about as well as the
Strike Kings anymore. (NATHAN) I’m talking toads
boys. (BRIAN) You need help? Yeah, let’s get him help, are
you serious? (Outside sounds) (NATHAN) Got an awful slow
head shake. What is it? (BRIAN) Is that a walleye? (NATHAN) I don’t know what it
is. (BRIAN) I just saw the back. (NATHAN) No, it’s a bass. It
feels like it’s pretty heavy. (DUSTIN) I just seen it. (BRIAN) Okay I just saw it’s,
like dorsal fin come out. (ANNOUNCER) THIS PORTION OF
3B OUTDOORS IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THESE FINE COMPANIES. (MUSIC) (COMMERCIALS) (NATHAN) It feels like it’s
pretty heavy if it is. (DUSTIN) I just seen it. (BRIAN) Okay, I just saw it’s
like dorsal fin come out. (NATHAN) Maybe fowl hooked or
something. (BRIAN) You doubled up. You doubled up. You’ve
doubled it up. (NATHAN) Golly, they’re big
ones too. (BRIAN) Yeah. It’s a nice one. It’s a nice one. Come here, come here.
(laughter) Look, look at that. (NATHAN) Come here, I told
you this fish. (BRIAN) Look at that. (NATHAN) What can you say
about that? (BRIAN) That’s awesome.
That’s awesome. (NATHAN) Is that not
incredible? (DUSTIN) It’s about 12 pounds
in one catch. (BRIAN) It’s a lot. (NATHAN) Looky here boys. The ledge rocket, the ledge
rocket, just put the hammer down on two big ones. I don’t know what you say
about that. (BRIAN) That’s awesome. Do
you want a picture of it or? (NATHAN) Yeah. Lord, yeah. (BRIAN) Bring them a little
closer together, right there. (NATHAN) Dude, is them huge
or what? (BRIAN) That’s awesome. (NATHAN) Was that not
incredible? (BRIAN) Yes. (NATHAN) Holy cow. I told you. I said you better
get the net buddy. (DUSTIN) Yeah when they come
up over here one time, I seen the lines and I said
that’s a bass. (NATHAN) Lord have mercy.
What do you do to top that? (BRIAN) You know, that’s like
killing a big buck, you almost got to just go home now. Boy, I tell you what though,
this big girl right there was stressing that hook. Look it’s about bent out.
There we go. (NATHAN) Golly. (BRIAN) Look at that, she was
bending that trebel out. (NATHAN) Do we want to weigh
one of them or just turn them lose? (BRIAN) Completely up to you,
my friend. They’re good ones, yeah.
That’s real good. (DUSTIN) Let’s weigh it in the
left hand and just see. (NATHAN) There’s scales right
there. (DUSTIN) Show’s over. Let’s
go home. (NATHAN) (laughter) Show’s
over. We can’t top this. That’s the
best double of my life. (BRIAN) Look at her tail. (NATHAN) I know it. Reading
this. (BRIAN) 7.4 (NATHAN) Good night, what a
bass. 7.4 and that one right there
is 7.4 and that’s one right there has got to be over
6, don’t it? Look at the belly on those
things? (BRIAN) Look what will deceive
you about these Douglas fast though, look at that and
she was beat up. That’s what they said now. (NATHAN) That’s incredible. That’s incredible. I just don’t know how you top
this. Man, big Brian Ooten, Ooten’s
the man down here on Douglas, I’m just telling you
boys. He pulled that first spot. I got two on the same crank
bait. That’s the big one, seven
pounder, healthy, swim again. There’s the other hog. Look
at them, you talk about fat. (BRIAN) They’re just big freaks. They’re big, big chunks. (NATHAN) I’m telling you. (Outside sounds) (NATHAN) Tater, baby, double
tater. (BRIAN) Good one going. (NATHAN) Whoa, gosh a mighty. (BRIAN) Now the pressures on. (NATHAN) The pressures off. (BRIAN) No, now I got to wipe
this skunk off. (NATHAN) Go home boys, it’s
over with. Gosh. (BRIAN) That was awesome. (NATHAN) Twelve years of
fishing. (BRIAN) Two huge ones anyway. Well, see they came to the top
of the water and it looked really long when I saw
it and then I seen that dorsal fin and I thought well
that’s a big wialleye. (DUSTIN) But when they come up
that second time right there, I seen the spots on the
side, no, them are bass. (BRIAN) What I saw though, I
guess was one was in front of the other and it came up
and made it look super long, so. Well good deal. That was
awesome. (DUSTIN) Well together they
was, (NATHAN) This is 3B Outdoors,
you don’t never know what’s going to happen. (BRIAN) Got it? I might have
to switch up to a 10XD. (Outside sounds) (NATHAN) A good chunky, down
there deep, banging around. My new favorite color. I may
just retire. (BRIAN) Shoot I would. I got a confession when I
parked the truck this morning, there was a biscuit
in the bag, and I assumed it was for me. So, I ate it. (NATHAN) You assumed? (BRIAN) Yeah, assumed. (NATHAN) What am I going to
have? (BRIAN) Well I mean it was
going to set up there all day, I considered it, you know
preventing waste, so I took care of it. (NATHAN) Well, I’m glad.
Coates bought that for you. (BRIAN) Thanks Coates. (Outside sounds) (NATHAN) This is truly,
you’ve got to hunt them. (BRIAN) There they are. See that? That my friends is
attack formation. (Outside sounds) (BRIAN) I can’t tell. Might be a white? No, that’s
a little bass. (NATHAN) That’s a bass. (BRIAN) Just a baby. (NATHAN) It’s a baby but it’s
a bass. Somebody’s momma is proud of
him. (BRIAN) Yep. (NATHAN) That is post spawn
there. (BRIAN) Yeah. (ANNOUNCER) THIS PORTION OF
3B OUTDOORS IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THESE FINE COMPANIES. (MUSIC) (COMMERCIAL) (NATHAN) I know it’s a
stripe. (BRIAN) We doubled up on
something. (NATHAN) Hey, you’ve got a
good one. I’ll get out of your way. You’ve got a bass. Need the
net? (BRIAN) Nah, I don’t know that
it’s a bass yet. Yeah, it’s a bass. (NATHAN) Need the net? (BRIAN) Nah. (NATHAN) You sure? Get the
net. Get the net. Yeah baby. (BRIAN) Get a good one. (NATHAN) That’s a good one.
Tell us about the crank bait. (BRIAN) Got a strike king 66D
in green gizzard shad. (NATHAN) Is it a rental? (BRIAN) It is a rental. This is Coates, the camera
man’s crank bait. (NATHAN) It’s a rental. (BRIAN) And it works, so. (NATHAN) And it works. (BRIAN) Pretty fish but you
can look at that fish just for a second. I mean it’s, to me it looks
pre-spawned, look the tail’s not beat, still good
and fat. I mean it’s not a beat up fish. (NATHAN) Beautiful fish. (BRIAN) So, now we’re middle
of May, so. (NATHAN) Pretty fish. (DUSTIN) It’s got spots all
over it. (BRIAN) Yep. She’s tattooed. Beautiful
fish, a Douglas Lake tattooed. (Outside sounds) (NATHAN) Another white bass. They will hook you in a
heartbeat. (BRIAN) I know that’s, these
little trash fish are the ones that will catch a billion
bass and then three of these things will hook your,
cut you. (Outdoor Sounds) (NATHAN) Man oh man. That’s almost as good as two
six pounds, almost. Never enough, Dr. Enuf. (Outside sounds) (NATHAN) Them camo pants
can’t hide from them a little better. (BRIAN) I know I can sneak up
on them now. (Outside sounds) (BRIAN) Oh, it came off. (NATHAN) A big one? (BRIAN) Yeah, it was a big one. It was a horse. It about took the rod
completely out of me, did you see it? (NATHAN) Yep. (NATHAN) We’ve tooled around
man. It’s been brutal. We’ve had a couple of bites. I lost one on a crank bait,
Brian lost one on a jigging spoon that looked like
a mule, man. I mean it’s on that big magnum
spoon and they just shut off. This water’s come up a lot
over the last two or three days and I don’t know
they’re definitely scattered but we can find them
just can’t make them bite. We’ve got a couple of hours
here before dark. We’re not quitting, we’re
going after them. I got the man over here. He’s working hard over here,
scanning, looking for them and when we find them, we’re
going to put a hurting on them, maybe. Don’t go anywhere, 3B Outdoors
on Douglas Lake. We’re trying to get it done
dude. Trying to get it done. (ANNOUNCER) THIS PORTION OF
3B OUTDOORS IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THESE FINE COMPANIES, (MUSIC) (COMMERCIALS) (NATHAN) I’m going to lift him. I think I did. I thought he was better than
that. Trailer hook. (BRIAN) A big poon. (NATHAN) Looky there boys. Why would a little fish, eat
something like that? I’ll never know. I’ll take him on a slow day
like this. Now we’ve fooled around, it’s
been really, really slow. First bite we’ve had in a
while, maybe we’ll get them fired up, bust them again. Yeah. Heavy metal baby. (BRIAN) Got him? It’s a good
one. (NATHAN) Get the net, get the
net. Get the net, get the net. (BRIAN) I bet it’s a good one.
Stay down girl. (NATHAN) That’s a grown one.
That’ll work. (BRIAN) Look at that boys.
Look at that. (DUSTIN) A stud there. (NATHAN) There you go. (BRIAN) A little beat up. (NATHAN) Knocked around all
day long, I’m telling you. Dude he choked it too, didn’t
he? (BRIAN) Choked it, choked it.
That’s a Douglas Lake stud. (NATHAN) You’ve been looking
for one all day long. I’m telling you. (BRIAN) Yep got it. (NATHAN) It’s a nice one
right there. (BRIAN) Got a good one, let’s
get another. (Outside sounds) (NATHAN) What a bass. That’s what you’ve been
looking for big boy. (BRIAN) Yeah, I got it. (NATHAN) A tater (BRIAN) It’s taken long
enough. (NATHAN) Tater. (BRIAN) Yeah, so we fished all
day and it’s been really, really tough. Um, these fish three days ago
they were set up on ledges everywhere. The lake comes up five or six
feet they scatter. They’re starting to set back
up but they’re still not you know really committed. So, we’re going to make one
more stop. You know we finally just
jacked a big one so we’re going to make one more
stop and see what we can come up with and stay with us. (BRIAN) There’s a ton of them
shelved up here in ten feet of water. See it? (NATHAN) Yeah. (Outside sounds) (NATHAN) Bo is over there
digging us one out of the box. He’s going to show us one, he
was nice enough… (BO) 3B Outdoors! (NATHAN) There ya go! (BO) Watch 3B Outdoors, you
can’t go wrong there. (NATHAN) There ya go, that’s
right! (BRIAN) 5 here, 4 here.
(DUSTIN) 5… (BRIAN) 6 here. (DUSTIN) There’s 5 over there,
5 right here… (Outdoor Sounds) (BRIAN) Give me just one more
big one. (Outdoor Sounds) (NATHAN) Here we are boys,
last stop of the day. It’s been awesome man. (BRIAN) It’s been fun. (NATHAN) Got some big ‘ole
fish down here on Douglas, started at day light. It’s almost dark. Moon on one side, sun on the
other, big fish in the middle. Let’s close it out good man. (BRIAN) Let’s do it. Not many
bites but big ones. (NATHAN) There you go. You got a struggle. Tater,
before it happens. (BRIAN) Before. Now we got to
make it happen so. (NATHAN) It’s going to happen. All right, last stop, do it. (NATHAN) Big one? (BRIAN) No. I got excited
sorry. (NATHAN) It can close the
deal right there though. I’m not sure if that’s fair. I’m down here hung out trying
to get a, (BRIAN) I’ve got to get you in
the penalty box, you’re only up 14 pounds. (NATHAN) Gosh, it ain’t coming. I can’t get a hold of it. (BRIAN) That’s it. Long day,
good day, big fish, few bites. (NATHAN) That’s what we come
to do. I mean we set offshore all day
and man, anytime you can come anywheres love on your
back yard, catch three fish over five pounds and man,
it’s an awesome day and this is the man right here. He brought us out here and he
lives down here and this is his game. You know I don’t claim to know
the game but if one bites, I’ll try to jerk it in. That’s what we done today but
man, we had some really good fish. There wasn’t a lot of them. We started at daylight as the
dark and this is not an easy game. If you think it’s an easy game
come on, bring it on, send us some pictures. We love it, hope you did too
man. Thanks, Brian. (BRIAN) It was awesome. Anytime you catch 13 pounds on
a cast, pretty special. (NATHAN) Lucky, lucky, I got
a horse shoe in a pocket baby. All right, thanks a bunch,
appreciate you watching. (Outside sounds) (Outside sounds) (BRIAN) It’s a nice boat. (Outside sounds) (NATHAN) I told you it was
going to be a career day for me. I’m still pinching myself when
I watch that footage, I can’t believe it happened. A big humongous thank you to
Brian Ooten, he’s one of my great friends and man as
you can tell one of the greatest fisherman on
Douglas Lake. An awesome show, awesome day,
don’t know how you can top that, I don’t think I ever
will in my lifetime. But don’t miss next week where
Freddie and those hunting guys they’ll be hanging out of
a tree stand, looking out of a blind, trying to shoot
something. I’m Nathan Light, appreciate
you watching. (MUSIC) (MUSIC) (MUSIC) (BRIAN) If we were out here
fishing for these, we’d have an epic day.
