FLORIDA Pier Fishing: Catch Fish Fast!

December 5, 2019

Wow! Brendon, the striped fish just came up to the surface Do you see them?! Oh my Goodness! This week we are at South Point Pier in Miami Florida and we’re attempting to catch that many species of fish is possible. And a little bit of sunshine. Some people spend their entire lives chasing monster fish, but when you’re in a new area it is hard to catch those big trophies. This episode is about catching what’s the over quality. This week I want to share my way to quickly and easily figure out what kind of fish are biting an area and, catch a lot of fish in a short amount of time. I will be putting my recommendation in the description below. “My go to rig…Very easy-to-use…Guaranteed fish almost every time.” This is a Sabiki Rig. It is a line with 3-6 hooks and a bunch of tiny flies attached to the Sabiki rig is an excellent fish finder. It is really easy to use and it comes in a variety of hook sizes. All you really have to do is Bait up the hook, drop the rig down and wait for a tug! If there are fish around, the Sabiki Rig Will catch them. I’m using cut shrimp because I’ve heard Florida Fish love shrimp, but you can use whatever kind of bait you like. I told Erin to use a sabiki, because it’s really easy and it’s really fun to use and ultimately she had a really great time. “Okay.. you are tangled immediately…” “How did you mess that up already??” “What did you do?” “Oh! I did it!” “I just pulled it right out!” “Oop, nope you got one.” “Oooo thats the first one!” “Caught a little fish, what kind of fish is this?” “No idea” My family caught a bunch of different fish that day, but i love it when you guys tell me what they’re called. If you could share your knowledge with us us please comment below. This fish had a really weird mouth, maybe with some kind of bottom feeder? My dad caught a fish with a big black spot on his tail, does anyone have any guesses as to what kind of fish this is? “Caught right at the rocks. Another species. that spot on the tail” “What was it.?….What did you get?” “I dont know! I just like it when they pull. It makes me excited!” “Got a bite?” Yup! “Get it!” “EEK! ITS A NEEDLEFISH! ” “Oh you snagged it tho, did you snag it?” “Dont touch it, dont touch it, its gonna bite you.” “Ok what do I do Brendon!?” “Alright put it down.” “This is a tiny one.” “Its weird tho, its cute!” “Yeah It has a lot of teeth on the inside.” “Oh wow, its like a baby, so cute!” “Alright so we’ve caught four species now within like 10 minutes something like that?” “It is so easy.” “I see Needle Fish in there!” Don’t catch another one! they’re not fun to catch. They are so big! “They are like a foot long.” “Whats that??” “Over there” “AHHH!” *Shrieks “BRENDON” “I diddled the line” “Give it a cast out there!” “I thought I caught the fish of my life!” “YEA RIGHT. Cast it over there” “Brendon Brendon!” “WOW, Brendon! Go Go!” Now Im not exactly sure what kind of fish this is… maybe you guys to tell me. “Whoa! Oh this is a Parrot Fish. “Look its changing colors… “It’s changing colors. See it? Its turning from blue to red oh no its turning blue. “Am I seeing things?” “Wow. Ok I’m going to throw the rig right by the rocks and see if there’s anything hiding in there.” “Got one already??” “Another species, this is like species number…6” “Look at this one” “Thats beautiful. Species number 6” “We were here for probably 15 to 20 minutes” “We caught like seven different species of fish. Just goes to show why I really like the Sabiki rig. Again it’s not it’s not a very challenging ring I mean it’s very easy casual kind of fishing rig but I catch the whole bunch of different kinds of fish and its really great at catching bait fish and it’s so fun. It is so fun and it’s so easy.This is the kind of fishing that I love where you just go and you just catch bunch and it’s over and this was like so much fun I’m so happy. Now the hardcore fisherman would argue that is very boring kind of fishing but this is not for everybody who ever wants to chill out, catch a bunch of fish, kick back and relax, the sabiki rig is for you.”

    When using a sabiki you should jig it if you're not using bait on the hooks

    Great video! Erin was so happy! I love it! Agree on Sabiki's. When Sabiki's don't work, try some hand tied double or tipple rigs with Fluorocarbon. Don't forget your favorite flavor of Pro-Cure-jell!

    I mean I'll 'fight' people who say fishing with circle hooks & bait isn't fishing, but using razor sharp baited sabiki's is practically catching more than fishing lol. Still pretty fun though, especially if other fish aren't cooperating &/or always stealing your bait on larger hooks
