    Best Baits for BIG CATFISH fishing: worm vs mackerel! Which one is more effective? Let’s find out!

    March 9, 2020


    I heard that mackerel is a good bait for
    catfish, so today I’ll TEST it out by MYSELF BIG catfish is today’s target and here is
    Lake Hodges We decided to fish a rocky dropoff Today we’ll compare worm with mackerel to see which bait works better for catfish Mackerels can be easily caught in California and I’ve cover that in a previous video If mackerel is a game fish in your state such as Texas you can’t fish it for bait. Instead, you may find cheap imported mackerels in grocery stores Worm got us the first catfish and this little guy was released It took him quite a while to find the
    exit, probably because catfish has poor vision then the worm got us the second catfish The third one was still on the worm. As he was small, I told him to bring back his parents:) The mackerel finally got its first bite! I move the closer to the bank so that the
    line didn’t get cut by the underwater rocks This guy pulled my drag really hard
    and it was a good fight! I hope I was able to share with you the
    joy and excitement of fishing See you and tight lines!

    10 Biggest Fish Catches Ever Caught!

    March 7, 2020


    From sharks, to prized bass, and a few surprises
    in between, join me as we discover some of the biggest catches of all time! 10. Blue Marlin (Unofficial)
    When it comes to “big catches”, just about every fisherman worth his salt has a “it was
    this big!” story, and that’s perfectly fine. Allow them to have those stories! But, when an actual true story comes along,
    and then gets ignored because of minor issue? That is sad, and it’s not to be ignored. For this is a case of technicalities getting
    in the way of the facts and clear evidence in regards to catching a massive Blue Marlin. To understand the story we must go back in
    time to 1984, where a man named Gary Merriman was in Hawaii. He was there as a guest of former Atlanta
    Hawks owner (the NFL team) Rankin Smith. Wanting to enjoy his time, Merriman went out
    and did some fishing, and caught a massive 1649 pound Blue Marlin. This is impressive, and was a catch truly
    highlighted his skill with a rod and reel. He even had a fishing shop in Atlanta at the
    time. In terms of pure size and weight, this Blue
    Marlin wass the world record holder, beating out the previous owner by a couple hundred
    pounds. Which you would think would be celebrated. But…apparently Merriman didn’t use an “approved”
    line and leader (via the IGFA who carefully monitors and checks all world record claims
    when it comes to fish), and because he didn’t follow those exactly rules, he was not allowed
    the title of biggest Blue Marlin ever caught. Which again, is honestly really sad. Despite this, Merriman kept the fish, and
    put it up at his shop, as he should when you think about it. And though he may not have had the record,
    he knew that he caught a Blue Marlin that no one had caught before. 9. Swordfish
    There are sometimes creature that we don’t know what to make of, and Swordfish are definitely
    one of those creatures of nature where don’t know why it was created to look like that. Regardless of the how and whys, it exists
    in the oceans. And fisherman have tried to catch the biggest
    and best ones, and to many fishermen, Swordfish are some of the best fish “trophies” you can
    catch. But the honor of biggest catch goes to a legendary
    man named Louis Marron. In 1959, Marron battled a mighty Swordfish
    for two hours to reel in a Swordfish that was a 1182 pound beauty that was not only
    a record at the time, by a good margin, but it’s a record that lives to this day. And recall, that’s basically 60 years of fishing,
    and no one has broken it. So this should prove to you that regardless
    of what kind of fish is out there in the oceans, if it’s desirable in any way, then there will
    be fishermen willing to go all out to get it. Even if it means fighting that fish for hours
    on end. 8. Tiger Sharks
    People often forget that sharks are a fish, they’re just a fish that is massive, and aggressive
    at times, and aren’t afraid to eat just about anything in sight should the opportunity arise. So though they are feared, they’re also seen
    as a prize, especially to fisherman who are brave enough to go after them. Because catching a shark means you have some
    serious strength and guile. A great example of this came in 1964, when
    a man named Walter Maxwell caught a massive Tiger Shark. Tiger Sharks are known to be very aggressive,
    and dangerous, and are considered one of the most dangerous sharks in the world. Making this catch very impressive in numerous
    ways. This record stood for 40 years, then, a fisherman
    named Kevin Clapson came around, and he caught a 1785 pound Tiger Shark. So a new king was born so to speak. But regardless, both of these catches are
    to be appreciated, as it couldn’t have been easy to reel in. What’s more, Clapson may have the world record
    on lock for the rest of time. And it has nothing to do with size or weight
    of the shark. You see, sharks are starting to be protected,
    and Tiger Sharks are included in that list. In 2004, it was legal to fish for sharks. But now, you can’t, with very few exceptions. So unless that law changes in the near future,
    Kevin Clapson will have the infinite record of biggest Tiger Shark caught. 7. Bluefish Tuna
    Caught In Nova Scotia on October 26th, 1979, Ken Fraser caught a Bluefish Tuna that weighed
    in at an incredible 1496 pounds. That’s right, this singular tuna almost weighed
    a ton and a half! But what a catch it was, and it’s a world
    record in terms of the biggest Bluefish Tuna ever caught. But just as important, this fish was caught
    LEGALLY. You see, Canada has very strict fishing policies,
    especially when it comes to Nova Scotia. You actually have to have a permit when it
    comes to fishing for them, and you can only do it in certain waters. To that end, the fish and game committee in
    Canada work hard to make sure that not too many Bluefish Tuna are caught so that the
    ecosystem isn’t disrupted. With all that in mind, it makes it all the
    more impressive that Ken Fraser was able to catch this massive Tuna. 6. Alligator Gar
    No, not an alligator, an Alligator Gar. Yes, this is a real kind of fish, and it’s
    one that can get quite big as one Bill Valverde found out back in 1951. He was actually fishing out on the Rio Grande
    river in Texas when he got a bite from a 279 pound beat of an Alligator Gar. But the funny part about this story is that
    this catch honestly almost didn’t happen because of human error. You see, Valverde and his buddies actually
    hiked over to the Rio Grande in order to fish. But when they reached the place, they had
    a problem…they didn’t have any bait! Yep, they forgot it back at home. Not wanting to go all the way back, they dug
    in the Earth and found some earthworms, and thus went fishing. Not for the Gar, they actually went fishing
    for Mullets, and THAT fish was the bait that they used to catch the Alligator Gar. Not that they had much issue bringing in the
    fish apparently… “The gar wasn’t hooked at all,” Valverde told
    Boys’ Life in 1972. “I was able to bring him in because he was
    holding on to the bait with those big teeth.” If only all catches could be that easy, am
    I right? 5. Black Marlin
    One of the most popular fisheries out there by far is Marlin fishing. These massive creatures aren’t just big, they’re
    heavy, and fisherman actually created special chairs for their boats so that they could
    sit in them as they fought the Marlins for sometimes hours on end just in the hopes of
    catching one. Then, when they do, they typically like to
    mount them on their walls as trophies. Plus, they KNOW that if they catch one, they
    made an effort. But as for the biggest catch in regards to
    the Black Marlin species, that would go to Alfred Glassell, Jr., who is not only the
    world record holder to this day, he held that record multiple times for different Marlins
    that he caught. Proving just how legendary a fisherman he
    was back in the day. The first time he got a world record was in
    1952 when he caught the Black Marlin, a fish that hadn’t been caught before. Which makes it all the more impressive that
    he got it before anyone else. Glassell would lose the record for a brief
    time, then he would get it back, and then he would to himself when he caught a 1560
    pound Black Marlin. Just looking at the size of this Marlin you
    can’t help but wonder how he caught, but no matter the exact method, he did indeed get
    it. And in fact, the footage that he took of the
    catch was actually put into a film called The Old Man and the Sea. You could argue that because of the records
    he set, that Glassell Jr is one of the greatest fishermen who ever lived. 4. Largemouth Bass
    The Largemouth Bass is one of the “revered species” of fish in the world. It’s one that many fishing competitions are
    held for. So if you’re watching a fishing competition
    on TV, many times you’ll see it’s for Largemouth Bass. Now, in a competition setting, the biggest
    Largemouth Bass ever caught was by a fisherman named Preston Clark back in 2006 during the
    Bassmaster Classic. It was an 11-pound 10-ounce bass. However, it’s not the biggest in the world. For just 3 years after Clark’s epic tournament,
    a man from Japan named Manabu Kurita shocked the world with the reveal of a 22 pound, 4
    ounce Largemouth Bass. So if you’re doing the math, that means Kurita
    caught a bass in the wild that was double that of Clark’s from the tournament. What’s more, it was caught in Japan, not in
    the US where a bunch of diehard fisherman are trying to break the record. Either way you look at it though, these Largemouth
    Bass catches were each legendary in their own right. 3. Striped Bass
    When it comes to hunting “big game”, or even game of any kind that requires serious effort,
    there are certain species that hold a certain place in the hearts of those who go after
    them. When it comes to the world of fish, the Striped
    Bass is just that. It’s basically the holy grail, or at least,
    the record of being catch of a Striped Bass is. The fish has actually gotten a cult around
    it more or less, as the group is the most passionate about not just catching the Striped
    Bass, but breaking the world for it. Why is that? Well, let’s just say the person who owns the
    worlds’ biggest Striped Bass record is rewarded heavily. Which makes the tale of Greg Myerson all the
    more epic, for he did catch the worlds’ biggest Striped Bass, a massive catch of 81.88 pounds,
    and he has proof that he caught it. Believe it or not, he caught the fish in the
    waters of Long Island Sound, which was close to his house in Connecticut. So he didn’t have to go far to get the record
    fish, he just had to wait for his time! But the best part about this catch was that
    there wasn’t any controversy over the catch. A previous world record holder didn’t follow
    proper procedure, and so many weren’t happy with the record going to him. But Greg Myerson did, and so he gets to hold
    the true title of having caught the biggest Striped Bass. 2. Catfish
    Catfish are a very interesting breed of fish, and they’re ones that fishermen really enjoy
    catching for one reason or another. And yeah, they can get really, REALLY, big. For proof of this, you need only look at the
    giant “Grizzly” of a Catfish that was caught in Thailand in 2005. This Catfish was so huge that it actually
    took multiple fishermen to bring it in. Why is that? Well, it’s because this particular Catfish
    was over 9 feet long, and weighed nearly 650 pounds! That’s a lot of girth for a Catfish. The locals of the Thailand area where this
    fish was caught had known that Catfish loved this area, and that they were able to get
    big, but NONE of them suspected that they could get THAT big. The only sad part about the catch was that
    the fishermen were going to throw it back into the waters, but it was so big and heavy
    that they actually couldn’t! So the fish actually died. If you’re still curious about why this Catfish
    stands out from the rest. The average weight of a Catfish in a large
    size is just under 100 pounds. So depending on how you look at it, this particular
    Catfish is about 8-10 times larger than an average large Catfish that you can catch in
    regular waters. So yeah, that’s a thing. And not surprisingly, after this Catfish was
    caught and taken a picture of, a lot of fishermen went to Thailand to see if they could catch
    their own monster Catfish. As of yet, it hasn’t happened, but it may
    only be a matter of time. 1. Great White Sharks
    As noted, many shark species nowadays are actually protected under fish and game laws. But, that doesn’t mean that before the laws
    many fisherman didn’t try and catch them. And that includes the legendary Great White
    Shark. Despite their aggressive nature and incredible
    power, there have been many fisherman who have caught one over the years. However, many of them fall under the “it was
    THIS BIG” category. That being said, on April 21st, 1959, a man
    by the name of Alfred Dean broke the bank if you will and caught a massive Great White
    Shark. How massive exactly? This massive shark weighed 2,664 pounds! Which beat the previous record for a Great
    White Shark catch by an astound 1500+ pounds! To this day it’s the heaviest fish ever caught
    and recorded by the IGFA, and given the rules against shark fishing now, it’s likely to
    stay that way as the top catch. Oh, and in case you were curious what kind
    of bait would be used to catch a mammoth shark like this…it was a porpoise. And despite its weight, it only took about
    an hour to reel it in. Thanks for watching everyone! What did you think about these amazing stories
    of fish being caught? Which story was your personal favorite? What kinds of fish have you caught before,
    and how big were they? Do you dream about catching fish as big as
    some of these? Let me know in the comments below, be sure

    How To Tie A Palomar Knot (Connect Fishing Lures, Hooks & Swivels to Braid) | BoatUS

    March 1, 2020


    Hey there, folks! Lenny Rudow here for BoatUS Magazine. You know, recently I was looking through our knot tying playlist on our YouTube channel. You may have checked it out– If not, be sure to subscribe below and then you won’t miss any future videos. But in any case, one thing that I noticed was we were missing the Palomar knot. Now, this is a really important knot for you fishermen, especially if you like to use braid fishing line, because that braid line is slippery. You can’t just tie it onto a swivel or the eye of a lure or any other solid object. You’ve got to use a Palomar knot to make it happen. So let’s take a look at how you do just that. Now, let’s say that this ring right here is the eye of the lure or a swivel. The first thing I want to do is take my line and double it up. Then I’ll push the end through the eye and simply tie an overhand knot. This is a really easy one to figure out, folks, because then all you do is take your lure or ring and pass the loop you made over it, pull it tight, and boom! You’ve got your Palomar. Let’s take a look up close. I put my doubled line through the eye, tie an overhand knot, and then take my swivel, lure, whatever it is, and pass the loop over top of it. Pull it through, pull down tight. One more time: loop goes through the eye, tie an overhand knot, pass the item through the loop and pull her down tight. This knot does leave a long tag end so the very last thing you want to do is get your snippers, snip that off, and you are ready to fish. Well, folks, I hope you’ve enjoyed this video. Don’t forget to leave your comments below, and I hope the Palomar helps you catch more fish!

    lot of canada and right over there is the old down It’s like a wagon wheel the old town square and all
    the streets go up from a spoke at a central point in the middle and a couple
    years ago this area was raveged by a huge tornado so a lot of it is rebuilt and we
    can’t really even tell the difference yeah hey guys so we’ve set up a spot in the in
    the shade oh jez its nippy, here’s the thing that the Great
    Lakes they don’t heat up as fast as the Mediterranean you gotta have a really hot day yeah yeah they’re my toes easy yeah gonna jump this chain hey guys were back from Goderich we had

    Ice Fishing | Climate Wisconsin

    February 16, 2020


    – Tom Marchant: Ice fishing
    in Madison starts when there’s at least four inches of ice
    on the lake– for me, anyway. [drill whirring] Oh, just missed him. See if I can get him again. – Norma Marchant: You know that
    almost everybody that drives by thinks you’re nuts. [gentle piano music] TOM: I’ve always liked being
    outside, being out in nature. I think I’d go nuts if I had
    to sit in the house all winter long. Fish tastes better
    in the winter too. You don’t have all the algae
    and all that other stuff growing in the water. All that isn’t in their bodies
    at the time. – Norma: So you go down
    until you hit the bottom, and then you just feel that tug. – Tom: Oh, there’s one
    down there now. Let’s see if I can get him
    to bite. It’s just a little guy. We usually get bluegills
    and perch and some crappies– a lot of pan fish. Having ice on the lake affords
    you to get out where the fish are,
    where otherwise, all you have a chance to get
    is what you get from shore, and that’s usually
    pretty little fish. I think it was four years ago
    that Monona had two spots that was wide open– probably a football field
    length and width– that it didn’t freeze. I think the length of time
    the ice is on Madison lakes is getting less. I can’t say that for sure, but
    it would make it real difficult to ice fish
    if it didn’t freeze over. – Norma: We actually
    are more competitive than we care to admit
    sometimes, but it’s friendly competition, right? – Tom: I usually
    catch more fish. – Norma: I think it usually
    depends on the day who catches more fish,
    right, Tom? – Tom:
    If you say so, dear. [both laughing]

    Episode 2 – Sand Beaches, Dunes & Cobble Shores

    February 16, 2020


    The southeastern coast of Lake Huron is home to thousands of permanent and seasonal residents. Millions of visitors each year interact with the lake through fishing, swimming, boating and other recreational activities. Our coastal communities recognize Lake Huron as being key to their economic development. While most beaches are safe for recreational use , many are not free from water quality advisories and multiple types of nuisance algae Sand beaches dunes and cobble shores are coastal ecosystems that provide valuable ecosystem services, and support many rare species on Lake Huron Sand beach and dune habitats are the most popular area for visitors and residents on Lake Huron’s shoreline. Beaches provide an opportunity for tourism and enjoyment but are rare and fragile ecosystems covering only 2-3% of Lake Hurons shoreline. Lake Huron’s sand beaches are dynamic environments growing and shrinking depending on the changing water levels in our Great Lake. Although a popular place to build cottages and homes continued development is leading to habitat loss for endangered species. Sand dunes are active, forming parallel to the shoreline growing and receding with lake levels winds, and vegetation cover. Ecosystem services provided by healthy, mature dunes include erosion protection from storm surges, habitat for rare species, water filtration, and buffers for waves and wind. Coastal dune systems are considered to be among the most fragile ecological features in North America. Great Lakes dune systems in Ontario due to their extreme rarity and ecological fragility have been suggested to be of national significance. Healthy sand beach and dune environments provide critical nesting habitat for endangered species such as the Piping Plover which are tremendously sensitive to habitat change Sand beach and dune environments are at risk from development, pollution, destruction of dunes, removal of natural vegetation, and invasive species. However, they can be preserved and enhanced using inexpensive, simple methods. Installing sand fencing parallel to the shoreline from fall to spring months to capture sand and build dunes, and planting native species including dune grass to stabilize and hold sediment in place, will prevent high lake levels from creeping further inland affecting properties and infrastructure adjacent to the shore. To reduce pollution, a beach-cleanup will remove litter and plastic off beaches stops entanglement and ingestion by animals and improves the experiences of beach visitors. To find out more, go to lakehuron.ca Cobble shorelines are unique habitats for their visual appeal their ecology, and coastal processes forming these areas. Cobble shorelines made of limestone rock are rare geologic features only occurring in Georgian Bay, Lake Huron and Lake Michigan. Cobble beaches are distinguished from others by having less than 5% vegetation cover. When vegetation can become established, limestone cobbles create a calcium rich environment. Cobble beach shorelines are home to small invertebrates like crayfish, mayfly and stonefly, bird species like gulls, Caspian Terns, and killdeer and reptile species such as water snakes and turtles. Cobble beaches are seasonal spawning and migration areas for larger fish such as Whitefish and Lake Trout. Increased visitation and removal of vegetation wrack line debris, and the cobbles themselves disturbs the ecology and food web of cobble beaches. Wash-ups of garbage and littering by visitors is another disturbance troubling cobble beaches and most coastal shorelines on Lake Huron. Cobble shorelines are more permeable than other beaches and do not store pollutants for as long as other coastal habitats but they become storage areas for garbage and litter that often fall between the cobbles and are forgotten. Six threats that most heavily impact the health of cobble beaches include: plastic pollution, vehicle use, invasive species, removal of natural material, development and alteration. Cobble beaches can be preserved and enhanced by reducing nutrients, pollutants, and garbage entering these ecosystems. Beach Clean-ups are a fun, easy and inexpensive way to keep these threats in check and keep our shoreline healthy.

    ICE FISHING 2020 – Western Pennsylvania Hardwater Tournament 53 Teams! Howard-Eaton Lake-8th Place!

    February 16, 2020


    all right registration for
    Howard Eton tournament a last-minute tournament got ice clear up in the
    farthest north west corner on close to the New York border we are just right
    inside Pennsylvania and we have a unbelievable turnout for the first
    tournament we are started already oh you already like all right like one
    pound passed with one pound at I saw I’m shoe buyer yes right there he’s pumping
    up my screens getting fogged up here there you go
    I think this might be the smallest Pike I’ve ever cried oh it’s extremely hard
    to videotape today because of just the snow and everything so and you can see
    that how tough it is to to push here and pull your sledge with all the slush you
    just it’s like a plow yeah I know I wore myself out we if there’s where we can
    win out on and we’ve got guys all over the place
    and it really is just hit or miss the snow sub just a big pain to try to film
    so not much footage for today just because of the snow and you know it’s
    just I didn’t bring a chamois either so just out in the elements today
    we’ll see how it goes here after a bit so everyone know how the fishings going
    today oh man it’s just it’s extremely slow
    I’m the getting a ton of marks they’re just coming up nosing at it and heading
    right back down to the bottom yeah no real dedicated bites that seems to be
    pretty much the story pretty much after 9:00 9:30 it just seemed to shut down
    you catch some fish coming in and they come up and they look at it they don’t
    want anything to do with it changing up different types of presentations just
    still not working it seems like you had to catch them early but you never know
    there could be just that straggler that comes through that you know just hasn’t
    made its way through all the people yet doesn’t look like too many people have
    moved since this morning because look at the slush and when that gets onto your
    sled you can’t pull even almost an empty sled
    becomes almost impossible because it just builds up on the bottom of your
    sled some of the guys have some Smitty sleds and some hubs out there where you
    don’t have to haul that heavy gear around but the guys have brought big
    heavy shanties they’re hard drag and so you can see most of the people way out
    there they don’t got no shiny so they just brought real light stuff so they
    can get out there it’s gonna be hard just to get a six fish limit today Gus
    decided just to do a six fish limit instead of a ten and it’s gonna be hard
    just to get six fish there’s some big perch and some big crappie being caught
    but you know some Pike around heard some people catching some bass so a little
    bit of everything but everyone’s pretty much scattered everywhere here on the
    lower end of the lake Gus did not have anybody we’ve blocked off the top part
    of the lake the northernmost part and so just staying down here you can see how
    much snow here’s how much snow we’ve gotten just
    in the past what that’s just the past 3-4 hours yeah you know we got you know
    several inches of snow so it just makes it really difficult just to film
    anything out here because the cameras get wet and cold and trying to get them
    outside we’re supposed to have the snow stop an hour after we start fishing and
    it has not led up yet so I forgot to mention Gus was my partner today so how
    do you think we did I think about everybody else that maybe we did okay
    yeah I don’t know Gus cut the big ones got a nice crab yeah it’s hard to say it
    just seems like there’s been a couple people that you know got a nice one here
    and there but I think my biggest one was a six-inch perch and caught a couple
    that were maybe two inches but Gus is what’s gonna pull us through because he
    caught the big ones today so we’ll go and it’s gonna be a close one yeah
    fingers crossed take a look at her bucket here really big perch and that
    big crappie yeah we got a couple little skinny ones in there so hopefully we can
    at least be in the upper half of the tournament you know and but you know we
    really come out here just because this is first ice fishing we’ve had all
    season and we had to drive quite a few hours just to get here and it’s more
    about just having fun being over get out in the ice too bad
    I would rather had a good fight with a lot of small fish but it was it was just
    so hard with the bite and then you couldn’t really hold off because it’s
    just so slushy and the snow is so deep and it just won’t stop snowing so
    everyone’s starting to head in and ready for Wayne here’s longer perch team number or for 1.06 3.10 lager crappy one point two

    How To Replace A Hose On Your Boat | BoatUS

    February 14, 2020


    Hi I’m Mark Call from Boat US Magazine
    welcome aboard. Today I’m going to be changing out this hose on this boat here
    as you can see it’s very cracked and it could fail at any moment and if the sea
    cock was open and the hose let go would flood the boat and we could potentially
    sink the boat so it’s always a good idea to keep an eye on all the hoses on the
    boat check them if you see any cracking it’s cheap insurance just to replace
    them out so the first thing we’re going to do is to turn off the sea cop and
    I’ve already done that so that there’s no water comes in the boat when we take
    the hose off next we’re going to undo the hose clamps there’s one up both ends
    I’ve already taken off the top one pull the hose clear put that to one side I
    have a new length of hose here so the first thing I’m going to do is slip that I already cut this to the right size so
    I know it’s going to fit and we’ve got some hose clamps here it’s important to
    only use good quality stainless steel hose clamps if you use cheap hardware
    store closed clamps sometimes they’re not proper stainless steel or the band
    may be stainless steel but the bolt is actually just a plain steel and then
    that will corrode and they will let go you may have noticed that when we took
    this apart of an only one hose clamp on here baby why see recommendations are
    that for any through-hole any hose clamp below the waterline there’s usually two
    hose clamps on there so I’m going to go ahead and slip a couple of hose clamps
    on there then tighten those up so first one goes on most of these have
    a hexagonal style screw so you can either use the screwdriver as I’m doing
    well you can actually use a small socket wrench so the first ones on and that’s
    tight then I’m gonna get another hose clamp and slip this on
    and you may notice that I’m putting these at 180 degrees to each other this
    is the correct orientation this should not have the same screws on the same
    side the reason being is that it’s possible
    for the water to leak by a little bit so we want to make sure that you get the
    best possible connection okay that’s nice and tight now when I
    connect up the other end to more hose clamps
    so obviously before I go and struggle the pipoint I’m going to make sure I get
    both hose clamps same thing again we’ll put those at 90 degrees to each other they should be snug they don’t need to
    be over tight so just double-check that that’s nice and tight now so we’ve
    stripped out the old hose I’ve put the new hose on now we’ve got two hose
    clamps at top and bottom at 108 degrees to each other exactly as they should be
    the last thing to do is open up the sea top and check for leaks. We have no leaks
    everything looks good so I’m going to go right ahead now and check the rest of
    the hoses on the boat for more information on this you can go to BoatUS.com/Magazine Thank you for watching
