    Make sure you watch this video and remember the key points in fishing live shiners in Florida: once you feel the ZZZZZZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMM, set the hook. Lmao....For real, though...make sure you always hit the inlets/outlets, culverts, and bridges when fishing down there (on a serious note).

    I live In Florida and man are peacock bass so strong. Even the smaller ones put up a huge fight, much stronger than any large mouth bass could

  3. Davey Jones

    They have soars on their mouthes because they eat things like crawfish, clams, or crabs which are rough and hard

  4. Davey Jones

    You seem to keep the fish out of the water for sooo long and that’s why you need to revive them for so long

  5. Specieshunting NL

    Labrisomus nuchipinnis is so widespread it's insane! I've caught them on Lanzarote in 2016, that must be about 7000km away from each other...

    This channel taught me how to fish I love your vids epf here is my insta if you want to see my catches @_strikesforlife_

    Leo -- Where I live (northcentral PA), Largemouth Bass are fairly plentiful, in both lakes and (for me) in  farm ponds.    I like to fight and land them, and then I release them.   But....Question:   Maybe I'm not really doing the farm pond "well" by doing so??   I'm talking 12+ (and I mean 12- 16 or more inch") Bass.    Soo...:Are they (Large Mouth Bass) any good to eat???   Honestly, Bluegills and Perch seem better to me.   But...a Bass??    Bigger Question:   Should I be maybe practicing, "selective catch and harvest", and take the bigger ones out of the farm ponds, for the sake of the other, smaller bass, or the other species (to let both grow)??   Please advise.

  9. dakota bayne

    Absolutely love the vids ..and how knowledgeable you are of your fish species...both enjoy the video and learn something new

  10. marcos scheneider

    Beautiful work you do EPF. If I paid you for every piece of knowledge I collected with your videos, you certainly would be swimming in money

  11. P85037 L

    You should be part of the googan squad cuz you would bring a different element to the squad. 1rod has been kind of annoying to me. Like why wont he show his damn face!?!?

  12. vaporang

    ahhh, bj's bait and tackle im guessing, the guys are nice in there, but theyre wrong about one thing, "lures dont work in the canals"

  13. Nails Wood

    Leo on the Amazon, after catching a 14lb P, "Whatever, I don't really care. It's just a Peacock Bass."

  14. John Dyer

    Sores on peacock bass could be from crayfish. The smallies here in Missouri get those when they are focused on crayfish. They pinch the bass in the mouth.

  15. TakeMeFishing

    I just received your letter. I will always cherish that letter. You made my day😀😃😃!!! ps. Nice bass tho👌👌👌

  16. brandon bz

    Hey Leo if I’m not mistaken we’re your fishing in the video there is a great tackle and bait and tackle shop around the corner

  17. Drake perret

    I understand there's a lot of cool species in Florida but man come on don't hate on the largemouth man
