  • This is my lake……You need to come back and fish over the winter……I fish the winter circuit here…….

  • Hey Gene was you recently in poplar bluff mo?…seen your ride I wanted stop and talk to you but me n my buddy was in hurry to go to the lake

  • Hey Gene, u need to check "Old Lady Angler" channel… She's great, U and Chad need to come down here to Florida and do a series with her. She deserves the Subscribers. Give her a shout on ur channel and reach out.

  • Cool to see you fishin with someone other than your own camera! If you want some truly awesome fishing, go backwaters of the Mississippi on the Iowa border. Kick ass man.

  • Gene I perty sure I was on Coffeen the same time y’all were out there. I live 5 mins from the lake. I would have loved to meet y’all. Have watched a lot of your vids and tune in on Friday nights too. Love ya do man and always appreciate your knowledge

  • Found your videos this week, been binge watching. I'm a newbie fisherman and have just started getting serious about bass fishing this season. Today, using a 7ft medium gx2 with an abu garcia pro max and 12lb fluoro throwing a bright walmart square bill landed me a 4lb and a 4lb 10oz large mouth within 30 minutes of each other! Thanks for the tips

  • Man you guys are funny😂😁. Had fun just watching you guys & hearing smack talk.🎣😎🎣😎🎣

  • Just found out about you a few weeks ago Gene. I've been more of just a 'casual' bass angler, mainly just throwing senkos and spinner baits, but never really knowing why or what or where. You've shown me a lot and i'm slowly starting to understand more why I should use a certain lure when! Keep it up, they're great.

  • Very cool this Fishing, Congratulations fisherman beautiful Fish! 👍🎣🐟🐠

  • Gene, I been asking youtubers, with no luck, about a question I have…so you are usually my go to with questions, so I learned my lesson about asking elsewhere. But any help or advice on baitcasting reels that have the digital chip braking system. I am getting my nephew into fishing and was looking into them ,but hardly any stores around me have them in stock. My thinking was, the less frustrating I can make learning how to cast a baitcaster the more likely he will stick with it. I know when I first was learning how to cast and thumb the line, it was frustrating and well…damn right demoralizing sometimes when I was backlashing, short casting, etc…all the lovely nuiances with beginner baitcasting. He is fine with spinning tackle and finesse fishing but he is missing out on some of the other stuff like flipping and throwing some bigger baits (swimbaits, a-rig…and so on) that baitcasters make more efficient. I know Shimano makes some digitals and the hefty price associated with it, but are they worth it? I just don't want him to be bummed out and give it up if he doesn't catch on quick and I don't mind the price if it will REALLY HELP. You know how the younger generation is…they lose interest if it's too hard to learn. So any advice or suggestions you might have would be awesome. Plus any tips on how your young one practiced or learn that could help me get the most out of my nephew's experience on the water with me. Keep up the good work and the good videos…hope to see you on the water sometime. Tight lines, from Kentucky.

  • Didn’t know you’d be in our neck of the woods! Coffeen is a blast even in the winter, 80* water pitching jigs 👍

  • You guys landed some great bass. I subscribed to both channels. Up in northern Illinois (Lake County), and southern Wisconsin, we have have some incredibly clear water. Green Pumpkin, and Watermelon, are the two big producers for me (red flake added is great). Thanks for all your videos Gene.

  • This is a great video! I love your colabs with good buddies. I know you guys had great fun, only thing that would make it better is if I was there too… tight lines guys

  • Good video but not sure what’s up with the sound, could do without the trolling motor and the water on the boat. Second video like that.

  • Awesome vid. Its awesome to see you fishing with the tacklejunkie👍👍👍both my favorite youtubers in the same vid.

  • It's been a super weird year for coffeen with it staying cold so late but I caught 87 two weeks ago up there. next time go to newton its unbelievable. So cool seeing you fishing my stomping grounds.
