Thanks for the informative video. Doesn't matter to me if the bite is slow, it's your thought process I'm wanting to learn from. We have zero open water here in MN and can't even fish for bass until mid-May, so keep at it and I will live through you until I can get on the water here.

Dude what the fuck is wrong with you, you need to wet your hands before handling ! Trout are very delicate fish and holding them without wet hands strips them of there slime coat. And taking them out of the water really stresses them out, sometimes to the point where they stop eating and die. You gotta learn how to handle trout the RIGHT way!!!!

JUST JOKING

This question is definitely off topic for this video but I've been trying to find the video where you mentioned the plastic bait company who's baits were much more durable than others... and it's been like looking for a needle in a haystack for me... Could you point me in the right direction? It would be greatly appreciated...
