Fishing the Midwest -2018 Season TV Episode #13- Fall smallies and season re-cap!


♪ ♪>>WELCOME TO
“FISHING THE MIDWEST” WHERE WE TAKE YOU TO TOP FISHING
DESTINATIONS CLOSE TO HOME AND SHOW YOU SOME GREAT
WAYS TO CATCH FISH. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪>>SO MIKE GOTTHEARDT AND I
GET TOGETHER ONCE A YEAR AND GO FISHING. MIKE ACTUALLY WORKS FOR P-LINE
AND ALSO NOW BECKMAN NETS. MIKE’S A REALLY
GOOD FISHERMAN. LAST YEAR WE CHASED
LARGEMOUTH BASS IN THE FALL. THIS YEAR WE DECIDED
TO GO AFTER SMALLMOUTH. THE ORIGINAL PLAN WAS FOR
ME TO GO TO STURGEON BAY AND FISH SMALLIES OUT
THERE WITH MIKE. WE COULDN’T GET OUR SCHEDULES
TOGETHER FOR THAT TRIP SO MIKE ENDED UP
COMING HERE. WE WENT TO ONE OF MY
FAVORITE SMALLMOUTH LAKES. ♪ ♪ SO WE GET OUT THERE AND MY
FIRST SPOT THAT WE STOP ON IS A SHALLOW HUMP. IT’S A ROCK HUMP. THERE’S SOME WEEDS
AROUND IT. IT HOLDS GOOD NUMBERS
OF SMALLMOUTH, PARTICULARLY IN
EARLY TO MID FALL. NOW WE’RE GETTING INTO
THAT MID TO LATE FALL, THERE’S NOT QUITE AS
MANY FISH THERE, BUT WE GET ON SOME
FISH RIGHT AWAY.>>THERE WE GO, MIKE. THAT DIDN’T TAKE LONG. YOU WANT TO GRAB
THAT BECKMAN, MIKE?>>GOOD IDEA.>>LOOKS LIKE HE WANTS TO
BE ON THIS SIDE OF THE BOAT. YOU KNOW HOW SMALLIES ARE. THEY KIND OF TELL US
WHERE THEY WANT TO BE.>>THAT’S RIGHT.>>I’LL TRY TO GET HIM. THERE YOU GO.>>THE NICE THING ABOUT NETTING
A FISH IS IT’S TWO-FOLD, YOU DON’T WEAR THE
FISH DOWN AS FAR AS YOU WOULD DO
OTHERWISE AT TIMES, AND THE OTHER THING IS IF
YOU GET THE FISH IN THE BOAT AND IT STARTS FLOPPING
AROUND ON THE FLOOR, YOU START TAKING OFF THAT PROTECTIVE SLIME LAYER ON THE FISH WHICH
ISN’T A GOOD IDEA, SO IT QUICKENS
UP THE PROCESS, GETS THE FISH
BACK IN THE WATER AND IT’S A BETTER
WAY TO GO.>>THAT’S A PRETTY
GOOD STARTER ONE.>>YOU GOT HIM?>>I GOT HIM, THANK YOU. THAT’S NOT A BAD STARTER.>>BEAUTIFUL FISH.>>YEP.>>A NICE SMALL DAY?>>YEP, SMALLIES ARE
FUN, AREN’T THEY? THEY’RE FUN ANY
TIME OF THE YEAR, BUT WHEN YOU’RE RUNNING
OUT OF CHANCES — ( laughing )>>THAT’S RIGHT.>>THEY’RE EVEN MORE FUN. LET’S GET HER BACK AND SEE
IF WE CAN’T GET ANOTHER ONE.>>SO TODAY’S FISHING, WE
WERE USING A BRAIDED LINE WITH A FLUORO LEASH ON IT. WE WERE USING A TACTICAL
LINE AS THE LEASH. IT’S A VERY LIMP LINE AND
GIVES A BETTER PRESENTATION TO THE BAIT, BUT IT ALSO HAS
BETTER ABRASION RESISTANCE AND BETTER KNOT STRENGTH.>>LOOKS LIKE A GOOD ONE.>>YEAH. WE’RE GOING TO NEED THE
BECKMAN AGAIN, MIKE.>>ALL RIGHT, I’M ON IT.>>I THINK, MIKE, YOU SHOULD
COME UP HERE ON THE DECK. YEP, THERE WE GO. THERE WE GO. THERE ARE GOOD
ONES OUT HERE. BOY, HE ATE THAT TUBE, TOO.>>NICELY DONE.>>THANK YOU, SIR. YEP. THE BOYS, THEY’RE
PUTTING IT ON.>>THE BOYS OF FALL.>>YEP. IT’S FOOTBALL SEASON,
RIGHT?>>THAT’S SOME
FOOTBALL RIGHT THERE.>>YEP, YEP. SO MIKE AND I ARE KIND
OF HITTING THESE FISH WITH A ONE-TWO PUNCH. WE’RE USING A DROP SHOT
WHICH IS SIMPLY A HOOK TIED INTO THE LINE, AND
THEN BELOW THE LINE, AN 18-INCH DROPPER LINE
TO A DROP SHOT WEIGHT, SO THE BAIT ACTUALLY KIND
OF QUIVERS AND SHAKES UP ABOVE THE WEIGHT ABOUT
18 INCHES OFF BOTTOM. WE’RE USING THE
KVD DREAM SHOT. THIS IS AN OUTSTANDING
DROP SHOT BAIT, JUST A LITTLE SHAKE
AND QUIVER IN THE LINE AND THAT TAIL GETS GOING AND
THE SMALLIES ARE LIKING IT. OTHER BAITS THAT WE’RE USING
TODAY, WE’RE DRAGGING TUBES. I’M DRAGGING THE BIGGER
STRIKE KING TUBE, BUT MIKE MAKES THE SWITCH
TO THE SMALLER BITSY TUBE, AND WHEN HE MAKES THAT
SWITCH, IT’S GAME ON.>>STAYING DOWN.>>IS HE?>>YEAH, SWIMMING
AROUND, FEELS GOOD.>>BETTER HAVE US A NET, HUH?>>MIGHT AS WELL. OH, YEAH, IT’S A GOOD ONE. GOL, THEY’RE NICE COLORS
THIS TIME OF THE YEAR. GOT THAT BITSY TUBE
GOING ON, DON’T YA? THAT BITSY TUBE IN THE
GREEN PUMPKIN COLOR WITH THAT TOUR
GRADE TWO-JIG HEAD, THAT’S A DEADLY
COMBINATION.>>WELL, I THINK THIS TIME OF
YEAR, THEY’LL TAKE ALL SIZES.>>YEAH.>>THEY’RE JUST CHEWING.>>YEAH, THEY’RE EATING. THEY ARE EATING.>>THANK YOU, SIR.>>YOU BET.>>GOT IT. Mike: WHEN WE COME BACK, WE’LL HAVE MORE FALL
SMALLMOUTH BASS ACTION.>>FISHING THE MIDWEST

PERFORMANCE OF AN EVINRUDE E-TEC G2 IN THE NEW 150,

THEM BETTER ONES. YES, SIR, HE ATE
THE DREAM SHOT. YOU KNOW, MIKE, ONE OF THE
THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THAT FLUOROCARBON LINE, ESPECIALLY
WHEN YOU TIE IN THE BRAID, THAT SENSITIVITY. YOU JUST KNOW WHEN
THERE’S A FISH THERE. THAT FLUOROCARBON THEY CAN’T
SEE TIED INTO THAT RIG AND IT’S GAME ON. ALL RIGHT, PUT
