Make sure to stay of the water during thunder storms and check the weather before you go fishing.


Episode 60: Stumped Fisherman and Our Second Guest

This week JJ and Josh have their second guest, Marie, on the show to talk about the big bass that she lost at the boat.  They also have the Caster Question and list the winners for the Bassmaster Kentucky Lake-Bassfest.


Make sure to keep your hooks sharp because you can loose fish if you don’t sharped them.

Also if you are using a white spinner bait with a white soft plastic trailer and you are not getting bites, then you make some marks with a red marker to make it look like the fish(bait) is bleeding.

Episode 41: Lots of Fish and our First Guest

This week JJ and Josh talk about there most recent fishing trip.  They caught mostly perch and it was snowing hard.   Their first guest went fishing with them and they discussed the fishing trip.


Sometimes if you lose a fish as your lifting it up out of the hole, you can grab it before it swims away because the fish doesn’t know where it is.


A 12 year old girl caught a world record yellow perch, it was 2 pounds 11.68 oz.
