  1. Yo, I fish ‘em in the Pacific, but I fear we’re all dumping a lot of plastic into our waters. These are fairly new, and in time, we’re going to see remnants and pieces and snagged lures everywhere.

  2. didn't know till now that FINN was a company you started/owned. Tried to purchase, but no stock. Left an inquiry, no response. Tried to support your channel Tyler, oh well, just bought a HUK on Amazon.

  3. Guy from Europe here: If i'm fishing the Keitech FSI (which is within my favourite baits) here in the river Rhine with a Fluocarbon leader i won't have much fun because the pike will simply cut the line if it inhales the lure deep enough, and there are lot of decent sized pike around here 😀So even if i'm targeting zander or european perch i always use a steel or titanium leader, otherwise i'll lose plenty of lures and fish 😀

  4. On a Keitech, I use a weighted 'keeper' EWG, and I sometimes slit the belly a bit to give the hook more room to get through on the set. Makes things more weedless as I can keep the point 'Texas rig style' in the little top channel. But I did have to go from a 3/0 to a 4/0 to get better penetration on hook set as well as keeping it in against the fight, and it really helped bending the point sideways a bit.

    For 5" ones, I throw on a 7" medium heavy, 30-lb braid and 15-lb fluoro leader.

  5. I caught 5 bass on a swimbait with a under spin today, missed couple more, but they where doing trick today. Only got fish about hour n half took me hour figure it out.
