Canyon Lake in the heat


[music] looks like we got one on folks that’s a
solid fish that’s a nice three nice three that’s a good way to start this
episode absolutely little feisty little guy there we go
I’m not gonna tell you guys what they caught that on but you could see it
hanging out the mouth so you probably guess that we’re up here at Canyon Lake
today doing a show and it’s pretty color on these things you know they’re nice
and black but um today we have a special guest with us all right
we have Austin and how’s it going guys and we decided to come out and fish a
little bit and see what we could get so we’re just kind of floating down some of
these coves and we’re gonna move around today and try to show you guys so in
case you guys didn’t notice this worm this is the 5150 this is probably my one
of my favorites all right I’m going to come out with about four or five
favorites and we’re gonna target that for Gary’s favorites and I’m gonna stick
with it so this is the the green pumpkin candy so again all I’m doing is I put a
little bobber stopper on this 3/16 bounce tungsten and sometimes I’ll let
that thing above the weight I’ll let it float up there and that this this worm
when it’s the bottom boy it just stands straight up like this and that’s one of
the secret of catching fish so welcome to the show buddy thank you
for having me yeah so we’re we’re just gonna have a good time today and that’s
a good way to start out yes this is it so in 10 minutes fishing we’re yeah 10
minutes fishing we didn’t even do an open now so we did the open right now so
we’re gonna get busy and start fishing guys and we’re just gonna take you long
on a trip hopefully we can catch some of those one of those one or two of those
big big ones that are here now they’re in here they’re here Austin was up for
last weekend and caught one right at ten pounds right yep nine eighty nine eighty
so just under ten but you also been catching some six seven and eight
you know yeah we’re after one of those today so we thought we’d just come up
here and spend the afternoon it’s only it’s only a hundred and eleven degrees
only so we’re back to the land of the Giants yes we saw this Lake in the great
Superstition Mountains where the Lost Dutchman is yeah or somewhere so
hopefully we’ll see him that one tap it no no tap just picked it up and started
swimming within ten feet off the bank which would put it down about 15 20 feet
the fish are pretty deep right now because it’s it’s still you know hot out
here it was 100 degrees 111 degrees when we put our put the boat in the water and
it’s probably still 111 oh yeah one good thing about it is is the day goes on
cool they can get cooler so we’re gonna we’re gonna film right up to dark guys
and then we’re gonna call it quits so we’re just gonna take you along with us
and and see how things go it’s pulling a little bit of drank all
right we got another little hook up here guys it’s not a real big one but hey
there’s my worm that’s a good thing that 5150 they float right back up yeah they float right
back up nice nice that one yep Oh Oh got him in the tongue so I’m gonna hold
him over the edge I’ll get us away from the rocks let him
go goodbye baby alright folks we got

out of Dave sunlight here turn the boat boy that’s fun during we haven’t got any
giants yet but caught some nice fat ones there coming that one was just yeah it’s

nice fish I wish I’d have had a limit of these at Bartlett last
week [laughter] I don’t I like catching fish you know this
size you know if they’re two two and a half pounds they’re just so pretty they
fight hard these are those Florida string look at that chunk boy I tell ya yes
that is that’s a nice just a nice healthy large amount he’s just a
beautiful specimen the color man their color their how green that is very dark
bed pretty that is pretty no crawdads down there all right little guy I’m
gonna let you go Dave catch him swimming off
that was quick all right another fish on oh yeah
yeah just another two we’re catching clones today yeah it’s a little bigger
that’s two and a half he’s gonna belly ooh look at look at that hook under the
under the theme right there that’s a little bit bigger yeah he’s got a belly
on her it does spawning trying to get that hook out he hooked weird ah finally
on that camo I knew he was there got a belly they’re eating
shad it back in here another one that’s good where they fight hard don’t they
my god nice not catching any Giants back here but good good luck on these two and
a half three pounders what do they got fat that guy yeah same exact size there
yeah look at that okay ready Oh got you Gary that’s right
another 5150 bass yep think of that color using the see that’s the camo with
just dipped into a little chartreuse yep that’s all Jacked up right now yeah still get
the just of it now it is about three and a half inches got cut
down yeah they keep biting on it the shorter we get you know goodbye
all right just keep fishing they’re gonna keep biting how deep did
that fish come when you threw it out what do you think you’re just fishing
these little points yeah fishing these rocks and any of these little cuts and
usually they’re about anywhere from three to five feet on those cliff walls
and that one hit it about five feet on this cliff wall yeah it’s getting to be
about 7:30 so this is about the time when when they start moving up to eat
the crawdads and stuff yeah there’s some big girls should be should be coming up
soon all the rest of them we caught we’re in deeper water in 20 yeah 20 21 so
it’s kind of nice just to just see these little little rocks here and you just
throw up right to them and then just make sure you follow your line down
guys it’s very important you know towards the evening like this as your
line is sinking and we were just talking about an off-camera but Austin had said
it’s so it’s so neat there’s one right there awesome!
aw! I was just dead sticking it yeah didn’t even move it I was talking on the
camera and uh but he was what that wall just off the rock yep and he just hit it
just not even moving there just sitting there
boy he’s he’s not that big but he is stripping line they fight here they
fight they fight hard boys look if you can only imagine those five pounds oh my
gosh last week you cut that ten nine eight
and oh my gosh that kind of like a Rasta been a good one
yeah they don’t quit you know these Florida’s err I’m uh I’m sticking with
my favorite everybody knows what my favorite it’s right there on the
side of the fish he eat it pretty good too yep
I’ll just show the camera what I like one of my favorite is Bartlett is and
it’s and it’s working here really good so you guys can see that that little
5150 that’s the green pumpkin candy and I like that pretty nice just a nice
little bass fun to catch we had a good time fishing these yeah these fish today
we got about four hours on the water and I’m just Texas rigging this guy’s I
am using a one on hook twelve pound xbs fluorocarbon tell you what fishing
this Johnny Morris rod I was talking to you guys on camera and I was just
holding it like this all they did was just be sitting there and I was just
talking then all of a sudden tick! and I set the hook and that this rod
feels so good I mean it’s if you can afford a rod it’s always better to get a
better rod I mean I buy the matching combos because the reel is just as good
but this Signature Series Platinum rod is is
a medium with a fast tip and boy you can feel everything you know when that but
even that is just ticked it that sent that vibration even the carbon light
there there super well I think all the Bass Pro all those high dollar Bass Pro
ones about $150 range uh-huh they’re all super super sensitive I love them what’s
the chance of there being another fish down there on that rock you never know
he was down on the bottom no I uh which is only ten foot deep nine foot deep so
compared to earlier when the Sun was out you know 20-25 yeah we were looking at 18
20 feet deeper so super slow fishing maybe what maybe we’ve been fishing too
fast and as far as moving our baits maybe we need to take apart better
yeah throw it up like a good place folks would be this this little point right
there right like that let some line out let that go down he’s fishing a
another little rock coming out so I’m just gonna let that go down there and
just sit there all right click my reel and just hold my line
tight just for a minute just to see if something thing will eat it chances are he saw it on the way down these 5150 worms
what I like about them is when they hit at the bottom that tail sticks straight up
oh oh it’s right in the feel they just float straight up and fish can’t stand
it you know here comes your shad yep the shad are working up into the upper
pocket pocket in the cove here so we’ll be able to turn around here and maybe
hit something still think a fives gonna bite us soon yeah yeah it’s just a
matter of happening there he comes right there oh boy come on yeah that’s a good one that’s a good one that’s a decent fish yep we’re gonna net this one yep there
you go that’s better Nice! that’s a three oh yeah that’s definitely
three and a half close to four that’s probably close to four that’s a good one
yeah there’s our bigger fish right there that’s what we’ve been looking for just
did dark you know that’s a beautiful beautiful that’s a nice fish they’re in
here [Music] you

  1. Gary, we stumbled across your presentation @ Bass Pro tonight. My 10 year old son about fell over when he recognized you. Thanks for being such a great ambassador to the community and sharing the knowledge.
