    Reel Animals Fishing Show 1504

    January 19, 2020


    >>”REEL ANIMALS FISHING SHOW”
    IS PRESENTED BY MOSAIC, HELPING THE WORLD GROW THE FOOD IT
    NEEDS, AND BY YELLOWFIN YACHTS.
    >>HEY, GANG. TODAY I’M BACK IN POLK COUNTY,
    FLORIDA. I’M AT THE STREAMSONG RESORT.
    MY GOOD MAN TYLER RAMSDELL IS TAKING ME FISHING.
    WHATEVER YOU DO, DON’T TOUCH THAT DIAL.
    IT’S GOING TO BE OFF THE HOOK. �
    � �
    �>>GO SLOW AND BE READY TO JUST
    DROP IT IN REVERSE IF YOU NEED TO.
    I DON’T THINK WE CAME INTO THIS LAKE LAST TIME.
    >>NO. �
    � �
    >>LOOK HOW BIG. THIS AIN’T A LITTLE LAKE.
    � �
    �>>I MADE ABOUT A ONE-HOUR DRIVE
    THIS MORNING INTO WEST CENTRAL FLORIDA.
    I’M OUT IN POLK COUNTY AT THE STREAMSONG RESORT.
    TYLER RAMSDELL RUNS ALL THE RECREATION AND FISHING STUFF OUT
    HERE AT THE RESORT. HE’S TAKING ME FISHING.
    WE HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE. THE BASS FISHING HERE IS
    ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. IT’S EARLY, EARLY IN THE YEAR.
    WE’VE GOT A FEBRUARY SHOOT HERE. AND THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST
    TIMES OF YEAR ALL THROUGH FLORIDA, YOU KNOW, A LOT THROUGH
    THE SOUTHEAST TO DO SOME BASS FISHING.
    THEY GET UP ON THE EDGES. THEY START TO GO UP ON THE BED.
    SHOULD BE A SPECTACULAR MORNING. THE WEATHER IS PERFECT.
    � �
    IT’S ALWAYS REALLY HARD FOR ME GOING FROM SALTWATER TO THIS
    REALLY SLOW BASS PRESENTATION THAT YOU USUALLY NEED.
    SO IT USUALLY TAKES ME A WHILE TO KIND OF GET IN THE GROOVE A
    LITTLE BIT. TYLER IS THROWING A CRANK BAIT.
    I’M THROWING A KVD RAGE TAIL WHICH I USED THE LAST TIME I WAS
    HERE AND DID REALLY WELL ON. SO GO FIGURE THAT WOULD BE THE
    BAIT I WOULD GO BACK TO, RIGHT UP UNTIL TYLER CATCHES A FISH.
    [LAUGHTER]>>THEN YOU’RE SWITCHING OVER.
    >>THEN I’LL HAVE TO SWITCH RIGHT AWAY.
    HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHICH LAKES TO FISH AND WHEN?
    ARE THEY WIND PARTICULAR OR ARE THEY JUST BAIT PARTICULAR?
    OR BECAUSE THIS CHAIN IS THREE LAKES TOGETHER, YOU JUST KIND OF
    MIX IT UP?>>YEAH.
    I GO OFF PRESSURE. IF WE FISH ONE LAKE HARD, YOU
    KNOW, FOR A WEEK –>>OH, I’VE GOT YOU.
    OKAY.>>WE’LL LET IT SIT AND FISH THE
    OTHER TWO. I MEAN HAVING THREE LAKES IS
    SUCH AN ADVANTAGE TO LETTING THE BASS KIND OF RECOVER IF WE DO
    HIT THEM HARD FOR A WEEK.>>THIS IS ALL CATCH AND
    RELEASE, RIGHT?>>YEAH, ALL CATCH AND RELEASE.
    WE THROW THEM BACK.>>SEE THAT’S EVEN BETTER.
    >>YEAH, WE WANT FUTURE GENERATIONS TO CATCH AS MANY
    FISH AS WE ARE — OR AS I AM. NOT MAYBE YOU TODAY.
    [LAUGHTER]>>ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE SMACK
    TALK EARLY IN THE MORNING. WOW.
    >>YOU BEAT ME LAST TIME.>>WELL, I WAS TRYING TO BE
    POLITE.>>SORRY.
    >>YOU KEPT LETTING ME CATCH FISH.
    >>THERE HE IS. HE HIT IT THAT TIME.
    >>GOT IT?>>YEAH.
    >>ATTABOY. ON THE BOARD.
    1-0, HUH? GAME ON.
    OH, THERE’S A GOOD ONE.>>DID YOU SEE HIM?
    HE CAME OUT OF NOWHERE.>>WOW.
    TIME TO GO CRANK BAIT, BABY.>>YEAH.
    [LAUGHTER]>>OH, THERE HE IS.
    >>COME ON.>>HE ATE THAT AGAIN.
    >>YOU’RE OUTTA CONTROL. HE HIT THAT WAY OUT HERE, TOO.
    >>YEAH, THEY ARE SCHOOLING UP RIGHT THERE.
    >>3-0. YOU’RE GOING TO END UP IN THE
    DRINK YET.>>OH.
    GOOD RELEASE.>>NOW WHAT WE’RE GOING TO DO IS
    WE’RE GOING TO WAIT AND SEE HOW LONG IT IS BEFORE TYLER
    ACTUALLY GETS ME A STRIKE KING BAIT LIKE HE’S THROWING.
    HE SAID, OH, I’VE GOT ONE. BUT YOU NOTICE HE JUST KEPT
    THROWING AND DIDN’T GO GET ME ONE.
    [LAUGHTER]>>WHEN YOU’RE IN A GOOD SPOT,
    YOU’VE GOT TO JUST KEEP CASTING.>>WELL, YOU’VE GOT THE BIGGER
    ONE AND GAVE ME THE LITTLE GUY.>>YEAH, IT’S THE SAME I THINK.
    >>THIS ONE MAY NOT RUN DEEP ENOUGH.
    >>YEAH, I’VE GOT ANOTHER BIG ONE.
    >>SEE WHAT’S GOING ON HERE? GAVE ME THE LITTLE, BITTY BAIT
    THAT WON’T RUN QUITE AS DEEP. UH-HUH.
    YEAH. �
    �>>THERE’S ONE.
    >>YOU’RE KILLING ME, TYLER.>>THAT’S A NICE ONE.
    >>YOU’RE GOING IN THE DRINK. [LAUGHTER]
    >>YOU TOLD ME TO BRING MY A-GAME.
    >>I THINK IT’S 4-O. [WHISPERING]
    I NEED TO GET OFF THE SNIDE. THERE’S ONE.
    IS THAT A GOOD ONE?>>YEAH.
    IT’S A NICE FISH.>>ATTABOY.
    TYLER, YOU’RE PUTTING ON A CLINIC, KID.
    LOOK AT THAT PIG THERE. OOH.
    WOW. YOU KNOW, IF YOU TAKE MY JOB,
    WE’RE NEVER TALKING AGAIN, RIGHT?
    >>YEAH, I’LL HAVE YOU ON AS A GUEST.
    [LAUGHTER]>>YES!
    >>”REEL ANIMALS FISHING SHOW” TIP OF THE WEEK IS BROUGHT TO
    YOU BY MOSAIC.>>WELCOME TO STREAMSONG, A NEW
    KIND OF RESORT IN CENTRAL FLORIDA.
    A RESORT WHERE GOLF IS BOTH A QUEST FOR PERFECTION AND AN
    ART FORM, WHERE THE STREAMS AND PRISTINE LAKES OFFER
    UNPARALLELED FISHING AND THE BEAUTY OF THE LAKESIDE LODGE
    AND CLUBHOUSE IS AS DRAMATIC AS THE SURROUNDING ENVIRONMENT.
    A PLACE WHERE THE GUEST ROOMS ARE PRIVATE SANCTUARIES AND
    THE SURROUNDING ECOSYSTEMS ARE AS DEEPLY VALUED AS THE TIME
    YOU’LL SPEND THERE. STREAMSONG RESORT, LOCATED IN
    INLAND CENTRAL FLORIDA, IS AN UNEXPECTED ESCAPE FOR
    DISCERNING TRAVELERS WHO CRAVE A PERSONALIZED RESORT
    EXPERIENCE IN AN INSPIRING NATURAL SETTING.
    “REEL ANIMALS” TIP OF THE WEEK BROUGHT TO YOU BY MOSAIC.
    >>WHEN I WENT TO CHANGE BAITS TO GO TO THE CRANK BAIT LIKE
    TYLER WAS USING, I DIDN’T HAVE LEADER ON MY REEL.
    A LOT OF APPLICATIONS IN BASS FISHING, THE FLUOROCARBON
    LEADER MAY OR MAY NOT MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE.
    A LOT OF TIMES IN LAKES LIKE THESE, YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO
    WITH IT. BUT WHAT WAS HAPPENING IS I
    WAS GETTING FOULED UP A LOT AS MY BAIT WAS HITTING THE WATER.
    BECAUSE YOUR BRAID IS SO LIMP, THERE’S NO RIGIDITY TO IT.
    IT TENDS TO TANGLE UP WITH THE HOOKS ON A BAIT LIKE THIS THAT
    HAS ALL THE TREBLE HOOKS ON THAT CRANK BAIT.
    SO I WAS GETTING FOUL HOOKED ALMOST EVERY OTHER CAST.
    TYLER IS NOT HAVING THAT PROBLEM.
    THAT’S BECAUSE HE’S GOT A LITTLE PIECE OF FLUOROCARBON
    LEADER TIED ON WHICH ALSO WILL HELP SOME WITH THE BITE, TOO,
    I’M SURE. BUT AGAIN, FOR THE MOST
    IMPORTANT REASON HERE THAT I’M DOING THIS IS TO MAKE SURE
    THAT I HAVE A PIECE OF A LITTLE MORE RIGID LINE IN FRONT
    OF MY BAIT. I’LL HAVE LESS OF THOSE FOUL
    HOOKUPS WHERE THE BRAID WRAPS AROUND MY HOOKS.
    AND THEN MY BAIT WILL TRAVEL CORRECTLY AS IT COMES BACK.
    PRESENTATION WHEN YOU’RE THROWING ARTIFICIALS IS
    ABSOLUTELY PARAMOUNT. SO IF THE BAIT IS COMING BACK
    ALL SIDEWAYS THROUGH THE WATER AND THINGS LIKE THAT, THE FISH
    JUST AREN’T GOING TO BE INTERESTED IN IT AT ALL.
    IT NEEDS TO SWIM NATURAL AND LOOK LIKE SOMETHING THEY EAT
    EVERY DAY. TYLER IS JUST CRUSHING ME AND
    HE’S ENJOYING IT.>>FEELS GOOD.
    [LAUGHTER] I FEEL A LITTLE BAD, BUT MOSTLY
    GOOD. [LAUGHTER]
    >>ALL RIGHT. NOW.
    >>GAME ON.>>WE’LL SEE.
    � �
    �>>YOU GET ONE?
    THERE YOU GO.>>HEY!
    ON THE BOARD. WHAT A CUTIE.
    HUH?>>OH.
    >>COME ON.>>HE MASHED THAT.
    �>>I HAVE FISHED WITH TYLER
    BEFORE AND IT’S ALWAYS BEST — I HAVE FOUND THAT IT’S BEST IF YOU
    SPOT HIM A COUPLE. [LAUGHTER]
    THAT WAY, YOU KNOW, HE DOESN’T GET HIS FEELINGS HURT.
    WELL, YOU KNOW. HE’S BEING A GRACIOUS HOST SO
    YOU’VE GOT TO LET HIM GET A LITTLE AHEAD.
    [LAUGHTER]>>I APPRECIATE YOU TAKING IT
    EASY ON ME.>>I DON’T GET FRUSTRATED VERY
    OFTEN, BUT I’M STARTING TO GET A LITTLE FRUSTRATED.
    COME ON, TYLER! I’M GOING TO MAKE HIM FISH
    WITH ONE ARM TIED BEHIND HIS BACK HERE IN A MINUTE.
    YOU’RE ON MY LIST. [LAUGHTER]
    >>HE CRUSHED THAT, MAN. THERE HE IS.
    >>OH, NICE ONE. NICE ONE, TYLER.
    >>CHASED THAT ONE OUT, TOO.>>I THINK I PICKED UP SOME
    GRASS. OH, THERE.
    HE ATE IT. GOT A DOUBLE.
    [LAUGHTER] I WAS HOPING FOR THAT.
    >>YEAH.>>TWO GOOD CASTS AND WE DOUBLE
    UP. ATTABOY.
    OOH. YEAH, BABY.
    OH!>>OH, I LOST MINE, TOO.
    [LAUGHTER]>>THAT’S PERFECT.
    >>YOU GOT ONE, BUDDY? THERE YOU GO.
    >>TREE. I’VE GOT A TREE.
    >>TREE FISH.>>I’VE GOT NO HEAD SHAKE AND A
    LOT OF WEIGHT. IT’S A TREE.
    THAT’S MY MORNING SO FAR. TYLER’S PUTTING IT ON ME.
    AND THAT’S CAPTAIN MIKE’S MORNING.

    RAMSDELL KICKS CAPTAIN MIKE’S KEISTER, WE ARE BACK TO
    THROWING SOME CRANK BAITS. AND IT IS 7-1.
    TYLER HAS PRETTY MUCH STAYED WITH THAT CRANK BAIT FOR MOST
    OF THE MORNING, AND IT’S WORKING REALLY, REALLY WELL.
    WATER TEMPS ARE DOWN. WE DON’T THINK THESE FISH ARE
    FEEDING PARTICULARLY WELL. WE THINK THEY ARE HITTING THE
    CRANK BAITS. THERE ARE SOME RATTLES IN THERE
    AND THEY ARE NOISY, MAKE A BIG FRACAS AS THEY COME THROUGH A
    CERTAIN AREA. I THINK THEY ARE JUST HITTING
    BECAUSE THEY ARE MAD AT THEM. AND TYLER HAS JUST BEEN ON
    FIRE THIS MORNING. SO WE’RE GOING TO SEE IF
    CAPTAIN MIKE CAN DO A LITTLE CATCH-UP HERE.
    WE HAVE GOT A COUPLE OF HOURS OF FISHING LEFT.
    SO WE’LL SEE WHAT WE CAN PUT TOGETHER.
    I HAVE BEEN REALLY, REALLY FORTUNATE TO GET TO FISH SO
    MANY BEAUTIFUL PLACES WITH SO MANY COOL PEOPLE.
    AND SOME FARAWAY STUFF, YOU KNOW, COSTA RICA AND
    LOUISIANA. I DON’T KNOW THAT I’VE EVER
    BEEN ANYWHERE ANY MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN THIS RESORT.
    I MEAN IT’S PEACEFUL. WE HAVEN’T SEEN ANOTHER BOAT
    ALL MORNING.>>NO.
    >>TYLER, TELL ME ABOUT THE LAKES.
    I MEAN YOU’VE GOT THREE LAKES HERE, RIGHT?
    >>YEAH. WE HAVE 25 LAKES ON PROPERTY.
    CURRENTLY WE HAVE ONLY FISHED IN ONE.
    >>THERE HE IS.>>NICE.
    >>ALL RIGHT. 7-2.
    YEAH.>>YEAH.
    HE
    HIT IT, SAME SPOT.>>SURE DID.
    >>WANT ME TO HELP YOU OUT?>>YEAH, YOU CAN GET IT IF YOU
    WANT. NOT AS BIG AS YOUR 5-POUNDER.
    BUT I’M BACK IN THIS THING, DAWG.
    IT’S 7-3.>>NICE FISH, BRO.
    >>THANK YOU, SIR. THERE YOU GO.
    >>OH YEAH. HE SMASHED THAT.

    SO I’M IN THE HUNT IN THIS THING.
    WHAT WE HAVE DONE NOW IS WE HAVE CHANGED GEARS.

    LAKE. AND I’VE NEVER FISHED IN HERE
    BEFORE. LAST TIME I WAS HERE, WE NEVER
    MADE IT TO LAKE NUMBER THREE. BUT IT’S AN ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL
    BODY OF WATER. WE’RE GOING TO COME IN HERE

    ORANGE JUICE AND OLIVE OIL. ALL THAT HAPPENS THERE IS WE
    WILL MARINATE THE FISH FOR ABOUT 24 HOURS.

    GET A NICE SEAR ON THAT. IN THE KITCHEN, WE’LL FINISH IT
    IN THE OVEN JUST TO MAKE IT A LITTLE FASTER, A LITTLE NICER.

    A LITTLE FLATTOP WILL TOAST OUR TACO SHELLS.
    >>FISH DOESN’T TAKE LONG ON A HOT GRILL.
    >>NO, NOT AT ALL. PUT THE TACOS ON.
    WE USE JICAMA SLAW. JICAMA IS KIND OF A NICE LITTLE

    3BO S13 E10 (NATHAN) All right, we’re on
    the road again, made a quick stop up there at
    Hardee’s got us a good ‘ole chicken biscuit. We’re going to another little
    honey hole, mystery lake, whatever you want to
    call it. We’ve never been here before. It’s near a big city in
    between two major lakes. Supposedly, it’s full of big
    small mouth, maybe even a large mouth or two. So, we’re on a road trip. We’re going to go see if we
    can’t fool one. Stay with us. (MUSIC) (FREDDIE) HE IS A GOOD ONE, 3B

    BAT. (BOW SHOT) (JEFF) VERY PROUD HUNTER RIGHT
    HERE. (DUSTIN) YES SIR! (KANDRA) IT ALL HAPPENED SO
    FAST. (LIONEL making train sound.) (NATHAN) BOOM! THAT JUST

    ANYTHING LIKE THIS OUT ON THE WATER. (DUSTIN) THAT’S THE BEST ONE
    THAT I’VE CAUGHT. 3B OUTDOORS IS BROUGHT TO YOU
    BY VISIT KINGSPORT TENNESSEE. (MUSIC) (NATHAN) Oh yeah baby. (OUTDOOR SOUNDS) (KEVIN) Let’s go get them. (NATHAN) Who are you? (KEVIN) I’m Nathan Light. (NATHAN) You’re the two time
    all American and we’ve got a guest with us today. The one and only Ryan Grubb. (NATHAN) Good man. (KEVIN) Ryan’s going to put us
    on them today. (NATHAN) Yeah. (KEVIN) Another mystery lake
    right here guys. We’ll find out whether it
    lives up to its reputation or not, we’ll find out here in
    a few minutes. (NATHAN) All right we’re here
    at the first stop, everybody’s getting their
    stuff tied on. KP’s tying on a spinner bait. Ryan’s got a jerk bait on.
    What’s the ground rules? (KEVIN) Rotate every 30
    minutes or fish. (NATHAN) Cutthroat day, right? (RYAN) Right. (NATHAN) So, if you catch a
    fish you knock somebody out to the back and if not, we
    rotate every 30 minutes. So, we see what happens,
    right? Is that okay? (RYAN) Sounds good to me. (KEVIN) Sounds good to me. (NATHAN) Can I change the
    rules as we go? I may have to make some up
    before the days over. But we are lines in. (KEVIN) Live action. (NATHAN) Lines in. Go boys. (RYAN) Look there boys. (NATHAN) Looky there. May be
    the only one I catch today but, (RYAN) Look how pretty it is. (NATHAN) Beautiful in that
    sunlight. (KEVIN) Good spot. (NATHAN) Clear water. There’s a large mouth. He’s not very big but big for
    his size. All I can say is, cutthroat,
    Kevin’s come to the front. Sorry Ryan you’re in the back. (RYAN) Uh-oh, uh-oh. (NATHAN) Oh it’s a good one. Swing him aboard there big Kev. (RYAN) Good one. (NATHAN) Chunker. (KEVIN) Chunker. (NATHAN) Dude. (KEVIN) Look at that. That’s probably a three
    pounder . (NATHAN) A good one right
    there. Yes sir. (KEVIN) Spinner bait. Spinner bait a little bit of
    wind. Time to rotate, golly, I hate

    there too. (RYAN) Did it come out of his
    mouth? (KEVIN) Look at that, three
    large mouths on a small mouth lake. (NATHAN) Something’s wrong. We’re missing the combination
    up. (KEVIN) He is, there’s no way
    he’s getting off. (NATHAN) Good gah, Kev. (KEVIN) Look how pretty they

    many, many moons. Tried to catch another, so

    bait. Clear water, sunshine, fun. (KEVIN) What does that mean? (NATHAN) Tater. Rotate. (RYAN) That means I got to go

    wasn’t getting off. (RYAN) I thought you was going
    on the bank, you caught me over there. (KEVIN) Golly, he had it good. (NATHAN) What did you pull
    out? (KEVIN) I pulled out an A rig. (RYAN) Did you catch that on
    an A rig? (KEVIN) Yeah. (NATHAN) Yeah, he cheated. (KEVIN) Another little chunk. (NATHAN) Pretty fish, ain’t
    he? (KEVIN) Pretty fish. Look how good and healthy
    looking they are. (RYAN) Pretty fish man. (NATHAN) Yeah it is, good
    job. That a boy Kev. (KEVIN) Doing all right today? (MALE) Good you? (KEVIN) I’m doing good. How

    Yeah baby, now we’re rocking. (RYAN) Now we got to rotate. (NATHAN) You’re going to have
    to hang around man. You’re good luck. (RYAN) Will you stay with us
    all day? (MALE) Yeah. I’ve got nothing
    else to do. (NATHAN) Good deal. (NATHAN) Got another one
    Kevin? (KEVIN) Another one. (NATHAN) A good one? (KEVIN) Pretty good, yeah. (NATHAN) Look at him, look at
    him. (KEVIN) Not a monster. (NATHAN) That a boy. That a
    boy Kevin. (KEVIN) I bet you five dollars
    somebody’s going to be tying on an A rig before the
    days over. (NATHAN) You think so?
    (laughter) It won’t be me. (KEVIN) He wasn’t getting off. He’s definitely not getting off. Oh, that means we got to
    rotate, golly. (NATHAN) Yeah, we got to
    rotate. (KEVIN) Oh, he’s good. He’s been caught before, look
    at that. (NATHAN) Yep (KEVIN) See his jaw right
    there. (NATHAN) Catch and release. (KEVIN) Catch and release
    works guys. Not a monster, not a monster
    but pretty fish, healthy. (NATHAN) Show us that all
    American smile. (laughter) (KEVIN) Thank you mister fish. (NATHAN) Tater, rotate.
    Who’s turn to go to the back? (KEVIN) Yours. (NATHAN) Who’s turn to go to
    the front. (RYAN) Mine. (KEVIN) We won’t give no body
    a hard time. (NATHAN) Oh no. I’m not sure if that Alabama
    rig is legal. What do you think Ryan? Do we
    need to make a rule change? (RYAN) Yeah. (Outside sounds) (RYAN) A little update here. (Outside sounds) (KEVIN) Hey Ryan, what do you
    think, go somewhere else, try for a minute? (RYAN)Sounds good to me buddy. (KEVIN) Guys we’re going to go
    across the lake here, might fish the shady side over
    there. It might be where those big
    small mouths are. We’ve been catching some large
    mouths, but I think we’re going to give those
    small mouths, them big ‘ole brown fish a try. Y’all stick with us, 3B
    Outdoors. (NATHAN) Time to make a move.
    I have a, (RYAN) Moon Pie. (NATHAN) Moon Pie, a Dr. Enuf. Man. I got my Dr. Enuf for
    later. (Outside Sounds) (NATHAN) He’s not the biggest
    tank in the world, so don’t get too excited but I do
    have one, on a tight line and he is brown. So, there you go. (KEVIN) It’s the first one of
    many right? (NATHAN) Well, got a little
    slow, they’re brown fish, tight line the gulp. I mean you know, what more do
    you want? I guess they can’t all be four
    pounders. (RYAN) It’s another brown one. (NATHAN) Look at him, look at
    him. (KEVIN) Watch him dig at it. (NATHAN) Look at him go. (RYAN) What have we got there

    Nathan’s fish right here. (NATHAN) That’s an
    all-American fish right there. (RYAN) All American. (NATHAN) Wait a minute, let
    me see, hold him up here. (KEVIN) He gets bigger when
    you hold him up to the camera, okay. (NATHAN) He’s almost as big
    as your thumb. (KEVIN) Almost ain’t he? (RYAN) I’m going to put him
    back up here where he was at. (NATHAN) Did you catch him up
    here? (RYAN) Out of that warmer
    water there. (NATHAN) (inaudible) (RYAN)I think there’s another
    one there. Look at that. (KEVIN) Well we caught one on
    a gulp, two on hairy, seven on a spinner bait, six on
    spinner bait and two on a rig. (Outside sounds) (KEVIN) Hey (RYAN) Looky there (KEVIN) Broke the dry spell a
    little bit. (NATHAN) Did you catch him

    Awesome rigging is what it stands for. Cheater rig. (NATHAN) (laughter) Cheater
    rig. (Outside sounds) (RYAN) (Inaudible) (Outdoor Sounds) (Outdoor Sounds) (KEVIN) What ya think (NATHAN) What is that? (KEVIN) Something new. (Outside sounds) (KEVIN) Run off the river

    Let’s go catch one up yonder. (NATHAN) It’s slowed down too. (KEVIN) Yeah, it’s slowed
    down. (NATHAN) Ohh. (Outside sounds) (NATHAN) Large item, large
    item boys. I don’t know if I’ll be able
    to land him or not. I may have to lay down and
    pick him up. But you know what, it’s a bite. (RYAN) Oh, you’re not kidding. (NATHAN) I’m telling you. (RYAN) It’s okay. (NATHAN) It’s okay today it’s

    don’t know what we, (Outside sounds) (NATHAN) What do you think? (KEVIN) This is it. This is the spot right here. What do you think Nathan? Give me a thumbs up or a
    thumbs down. (NATHAN) I don’t man. It’s kind of, Ryan says thumbs
    up so we’re good. (KEVIN) All right we’ve got
    two thumbs up. (RYAN) We’re going to catch
    them here. (NATHAN) We’re going to catch
    them all, that’s all I want to know, I don’t care. (RYAN) We’re fixing to find
    out. (Outside sounds) (KEVIN) I ain’t seen no fish
    break today, have you? (NATHAN) Nope. (Outside sounds) (KEVIN) You’re young and full
    of it, full of energy, got any kids? (RYAN) No (inaudible) (Outside sounds) (Outside sounds) (Outside sounds) (KEVIN) Now that nobody’s
    fishing in it, it ought to be easy, you would think. Easier. How many people left the Bass
    Masters for major league? (RYAN) 20 or 30 wasn’t it? I
    think I can do this. (KEVIN) I believe you could, I
    don’t know why you couldn’t. (ANNOUNCER) THIS PORTION OF
    3B OUTDOORS IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THESE FINE COMPANIES, (MUSIC) (COMMERCIALS) Go right there above it and go
    up. (RYAN)Over there? (KEVIN) Yeah. (RYAN)I’m going to through a
    dang tight line cause they ain’t hitting along that,
    I can guarantee it. Not for me anyway. Nathan’s going to put on a
    tight line and I’m going to put on a tight line and
    we’re all going to throw a tight line and we’re going
    to catch them on a tight line. We’re going to catch them on a
    tight line on a gulp. (NATHAN) I’ve already got my
    tight line on. (Outside sounds) (NATHAN) You’ve got a bite. (KEVIN) I’ve got a bite. (NATHAN) Look at that. Get
    away from me. (KEVIN) End of the day, look
    at this. (RYAN)What you got there Kev? (KEVIN) Gah. (NATHAN) Ah, heck we’ve been
    throwing crank baits all day. (KEVIN) I know. Look at that,
    son. (NATHAN) Did he eat it? (KEVIN) He ate it. Got a pretty little large
    mouth. What is this? (RYAN) That’s mine. (KEVIN) Okay. Thank you,
    mister fish. (NATHAN) Tater (RYAN) Tater (KEVIN) Tater. (KEVIN) Start it up, it’s time
    to go to the house. (NATHAN) Have we had enough? (KEVIN) Had enough. I put in a long day today. Started out pretty good,
    caught 8, 10 somewhere through there, probably from
    nine till lunch, then after lunch they just quit. I think we’ve had three or
    four bites since maybe one o’clock. It’s not a good day. This lake’s got a lot of
    potential I believe, a lot of stick ups, get hung and
    break your line here but it’s just a tough lake. Maybe a good cloudy day or
    maybe some rain or whatever, they’d probably bite
    really good. The water temperature is
    perfect today. Mid to upper 50s, I think we
    actually saw a low 60s today a couple of times but I’m not
    sure what’s wrong with them. There was a little bit of wind
    early this morning and that really helped but the
    wind kind of died down and when they did of course
    the fish did too. So, we’re going to load it on
    the trailer and go to the house. We’ve got a long road ahead of
    us. (NATHAN) Well Chilhowee Lake
    was pretty tough on us. The 3B Outdoors Nitro had
    never been on that body of water before but now we have. It’s amazing to know what’s
    really just a short driving distance from your
    hometown, wherever it may be. We live in Kingsport just a
    short drive, totally brand new water, we’d never seen
    before and as you can see sometimes it is tough to
    figure them out. Not every day is a whack fest. I appreciate Ryan Grubb, and
    Kevin Powers going down hanging out with us, and
    sharing with you what it’s like to just enjoy a day
    on the water and try to catch them. I’m Nathan Light, thanks for
    watching 3B Outdoors and don’t miss next week where
    Freddie will have you on an exciting hunting adventure,
    I promise. (MUSIC) (MUSIC) (MUSIC)

    VENICE BEACH Shopping Challenge | Los Angeles, California

    January 19, 2020


    We’re trying to find my brother something here. And Marko steals Alex’s underwear. I don’t always. I’m accused of it. We do laundry together; they get mixed up. Thank you. Throw me under the bus, Carrie. What’s up guys? Welcome back to Vagabrothers Right now we are in Venice Beach, California on Abbot Kinney Street. What are we up to today? Well we’re here with Carrie Rad. Hello My lovely girlfriend. Hey guys. And we’re going to go try to find some shop. We’re doing a shopping challenge. The goal is we’re each going to have 50 bucks, and we’ll see who can buy the coolest things for each other with 50 bucks on Abbott Kinney, which is not easy because there’s a lot of high price shops here. We’re going to start off with lunch at a our favorite restaurant, Gjelina. Always a line here, so it’s smart to make a reservation, and they can text you in 20 minutes when it’s ready. Going to go for the Japanese sweet potato with jalapeno yogurt and scallions. OK. The charred brussels sprouts and the tuna salad. The main course we have is roasted chicken with a little sauce. The pizzas here are great. We got the mushroom truffle goat cheese which is just like a trifecta of my favorite things. Everything looks absolutely amazing. The pizzas here, like Marko said, are incredible, but anything with truffle oil and goat cheese is like a guaranteed, winning combination. Lunch was great, but now we’ve come up with the formula for what’s going to happen. What’s going to happen ? Basically we’ve got 45 minutes each. We’ve got 50 bucks, which is not a lot..a stretch on Abbott Kinney. We’re all going to get gifts for each other. We thought this out; you’ve drawn up a diagram. Want to see my diagram? Diagrams help. We pretty much want to buy each other things. So I guess I’m up first. I’m shopping for Carrie, my girlfriend. I have a pretty good plan of what I want to do, and I know that there’s this cool little shop down the street that might have exactly what I’m looking for. Let’s go. What’s this? Brazilian bum bum cream. Helps posteriors look and feel and feel their smoothest. Do you know how much this bum bum cream is? So I have purchased a gift, comes in a big bag, but it’s small and carry -on approved. Got the Malin-Goetz fruit facial cleanser, bergamont bodywash vitamin B body moisture, peppermint shampoo and cilantro hair conditioner $32. After tax, I have seventeen dollars and thirty cents left in my pocket. I’m going to head over to this garden shop and see if I can’t get her a little succulent because Carrie loves miniature things. I did that one last night. That’s beautiful. Seven dollars, a great piece of artwork done. 50 bucks on the spot…on the dot. Thank you. Have a good afternoon. We didn’t know the story behind Venice. Originally, this place was built to be like Venice, Italy. This street here was a canal, as were many here in Venice. It got filled in later in the ‘ 40s , I think . Abbott Kinney has gone through a lot of evolution, from kind of a seedy place in the ’70s , to now one of the most trendy spots. All these stores are super expensive. So the challenge is really going to be to find something affordable. We are at Intelligentsia on Abbott Kinney, one of the better coffee shops in Venice. There’s quite a few. Carrie’s favorite. Intelligentsia is amazing all over L.A., started in Chicago so good. My shopping or Carrie has been completed. Now Carrie and I are going to take off and shop for Marko. Good luck. What’s the plan? Where are we going? What do you think? You’re his brother. You’ve know him for 30 years. No, you’ve know him for 28. Where are we going? Almost 29. We’re getting up there. Let’s do this. There’s a book shop down there that I think would be good I don’t know . I feel like he’s such a book guy, but don’t you feel he has so many books? What does your brother use right now for a wallet? It’s bad. The wallet situation is old…yeah, it was cool. Actually I’m using the same one. We got it at Buffer Festival two years ago I’m so excited right now. We just found a gift that we can initial. And it took 10 minutes. Also has a lifetime guarantee, too. Awesome. Perfect. What are the initials? M.R.A. So good. One more time. I was expecting an ice cream truck, but… Salt and Straw. It’s got some incredible gelato. The lavander…so good. Lavender and honey, isn’t it? Honestly, the hardest thing here is choosing a flavor. Luckily, they let you sample pretty much every single one, and then after you ask really politely, they usually give you a gigantic scoop. Not official company policy. Peace out. Now it’s time for you. Bye. Ahhhhh. Ok. Let’s go. I really think we should take a look at Scotch and Soda because we know he likes that store a lot. We’ll be able to find something around that he might possibly like. I think that’s a good idea. We just got the gift for Alex. it’s a sweet little shirt; went for one gift instead of many. I think he’ll be happy, and now we’re going to go over and get a little drink of beer here at the sushi bar Fifty dollars on Abbot Kinney, as we have found out, does not go as far as we thought it would, but it can. It can go far; you have to be strategic. I got you a beautiful little succulent purple….. these are the purple species, dark purple. His name is Succulentist Purpolonus Magenta. I got you a bookmark that is hand-drawn ; it’s a piece of art and it was hand drawn by some very colorful friendly locals. Very cool. You’re welcome. And last but not least, I got you this Swedish made…[penis enlarger]…Swedish made… Swedish made….. No. I got you this really nice Swedish beauty kit. It’s all carry-on approved, one ounce. And if you just saw our video on essential packing list, this is actually a good alternative to the triumph and disaster kit that we said. All right, Marko. Now it is your turn. We went to Will Leather Goods. I have seen this shop in Nolita, in New York and really thought it was cool, but I’ve not… Comes in a little box. I’ll allow you to open it. Great things come in little boxes. 3-2-1 Reveal. Oh yes, yes. This is what I was hoping for. Look inside, Bro. Inside? M.R.A. Wow my initials. I had heard about this… that they do custom engraving when you buy it. That’s so cool Final gift is my gift to my brother, Alex. We went to a number of places. We know that your’re a particular person when it comes to gifts. You know what you like; you know what you don’t like. Oh very nice. This took up the whole budget, but I didn’t want to get you something a little extra , which I thought you might like. I appreciate it. This is from right next door. It’ s Stag. I got you scotch-whiskey soaked toothpicks because Alex always likes toothpicks. I do love my toothpicks. I know it’s only five bucks, but I thought this could almost outweigh the shirt in some ways. This is great. Thank you guys. I appreciate it, Brother. Hopefully you guys had some ideas on where to shop in Abbott Kinney. We’ll leave links to all the stores we went to the info box, and hopefully that will help you find a gift for under 50 bucks. Good luck.. apart from that, guys ..if you enjoyed this video, you know what to do: give it a thumbs-up, share it with your friends, and subscribe to Carrie, if you have not already. Thanks, guys. She’s pretty rad. Stay curious, keep exploring, and we’ll see you guys on the road. Peace.

DiY costs RM1.98 for two, what you need just for two to make it four so you cut into two and u will get four there is another, this thing you can get in Dechatlon, it name might be a angle iron tent regular iron in this kind of spindle, tied to a rope and the pegs on the ground cost RM25 but we only need four, for RM25 you can get 8, so when all the stuff you get how you need to measure two sets for 16 meters you have two webbing lines 10 meters and 10 meters to get 16 meters you measure 8 meters and 8 meters, or even 10 meters you continue to add 6 meters or so an easier way to get the size within 8 meters you need to cut 8 meters but, at the end you need to increase by 6 inches, 8 meters by 6 inches left and 8 meters plus 6 inches to the right that is for you to paste velcro later for us to make the connection between set 1 and set 2 what is velcro? for example, say your child goes to school there is a shoe that pops open when it’s called velcro This velcro you can get at nationwide sewing shop, very easy to find no need to order online or anything To find out, you just go to the tailor shop or even a curtain shop or NAGOYA you can buy velcro ready-made stickers is on the market right now or you can use velcro with no stickers so you have your own glue near the webbing line using shoe glue sneakers such as dunlop glue or soldier glue and then once the glue is ready, you can sew it a bit on the velcro a reason to reinforce it so that it doesn’t get out of hand let’s say you have no direct talent to sew, you can send it to the tailor shop they only cost RM16 to RM20 only I’ll show you how to assemble this line Today I’m going to show you how to assemble this line beach volleyball is back This is a webbing line of 8 meters by 16 meters this is angle iron as well as rope (rubber) fasteners I got it at Mr. DIY orange and blue how easy it is to just throw it away we just throw it, this is 16 meters half of it is 8 meters this one end we pull up to get here we leave it here first, we take another one ok, same we throw we bring it to the end another one we bring ok, we got it 8 meters and now we take another 8 meters to the other end the special thing is this one made using velcro so you can enter only and make sure it’s on the bottom and we can lock it up if we want to change it if it’s too long or too short we can adjust it so I use the O Round Ring Ring Stainless Steel 5 cm, or so if you don’t have an O round ring there is another way just enter it cross between the two cross it like this one here and another here that this end we pull using stretch code or whether it’s inside like this and lock it like this can close up again like this and put it in the sand liken it? let’s fix it first because we’re going to adjust it soon OK Very easy and very cheap what are you waiting for order your stuff and do it When it’s ready you can put it anywhere you like, it’s easy to play beach volleyball right? is it fun right?

    Cruise On-Board Credit. 8 Ways To Get More, And What You Can Spend It On!

    January 18, 2020


    On-board credit, how do you get it, and what can you spend it on, and why? I’m Gary Bembridge, this is another of my Cruise Tips For Travellers. I was recently on a cruise,
    and I was lucky enough to have a lot of On-board credit, and that got me thinking about how do you get loads of On-board credit? And importantly, what you
    can, can’t spend it on? And what are the best things
    to spend on-board credit on? So let’s take a look starting with actually what is on-board credit? The best way to think about on-board credit is it’s free money. So it’s a bit like someone
    giving you a gift card or some cash to go and
    spend on whatever you like. So it’s a bit like a gift, and it comes normally
    from the cruise line. So it’s basically free money
    for you to spend on board. So how do you actually get on-board credit? There are nine key ways that
    you can get onboard credit. The first of these is from the cruise line when they do promotions. You’ll find when itineraries
    are launched especially, there are lots of deals and incentives to encourage you to book. So the cruise line will normally throw in some on-board credit, which will normally be
    per person or per cabin. And this can mount up to quite a lot depending on the grade that you book. The other way that you get
    on-board credit linked to that is if you book your cruise on the ship, so when you’re another cruise,
    they pretty much always will throw in on-board credit incentives. Again, scaling up based on
    the length of the cruise, or the grade of the cabin
    that you’re actually booking. Those are the most common ways
    of getting on-board credit, but there are seven other
    ways that you can get it. One of those is if you book with a agent, you’ll often find the
    cruise agents will throw in other incentives to try and
    get you to book with them, and often, they are able to
    offer extra on-board credit. And certainly, when you’re
    booking with an agent, ask them if there’s any opportunities, they’ll often throw in
    some, sometimes I guess, they’ll use some of
    their commission perhaps to put into onboard
    credit to encourage you to book with them. One of the ways that I
    have been very successful at getting on-board credit is by tracking the price of a cruise. So once I’ve booked a cruise, what I then do is I keep an
    eye on what the prices are for the grade that I’ve booked. If you see the price falling dramatically, the cruise line normally
    is not gonna tell you, but what I then do is I
    either talk to my agent, or if I booked direct
    with the cruise line, I say to the cruise line,
    look, I see that my cabin is now being sold for so
    many hundred dollars less, what are you going to do? They’ll normally offer either an upgrade, or what they prefer to do
    is offer you on-board credit. So for example, the cruise
    that I’ve just come off on, there was a dramatic reduction in price because the itinerary was changed, and I ended up getting
    $400 of on-board credit because that was the difference in price. So it’s really an important thing to do, to keep tracking the price
    of your cabin on a cruise. It’s a great way of getting a lot of extra credit to spend on board. A lot of loyalty programmes
    will also offer on-board credit. So as you work your way
    up the different tiers, you’ll find that on-board
    credit often gets thrown in as one of the benefits. So loyalty to a cruise line is another great way of
    getting on-board credit. Some of the cruise lines nowadays have their own credit cards. So if you’re a member of their credit card and you spend and you build up points, instead of being able to
    use those for other things, you can convert those
    into on-board credits. So if you really love a
    particular cruise line, check if they have a credit card. You’ll find that a lot of the
    really big well known names in cruising have a credit card. So it’s a great way of just
    doing your everyday spending and building up credits
    to your next cruise that you can spend on board. If you have a problem on board, that’s another way of
    getting on-board credit through compensation. So if you have a problem with service or your cabin or whatever, and the cruise line is
    not able to resolve it, be cheeky and ask if
    they’re prepared to give you any on-board credit as
    compensation, because that is an easier way of them
    keeping passengers happy, and of course, it doesn’t
    necessarily cost them a lot of money. So that’s a great way of
    getting on-board credit. So if you’re a serving
    member of the military, and sometimes if you’re a veteran through different ID programmes, you’re often able to get on-board credit. So if you are a serving
    member of the military check if your cruise line offers extra benefits and on-board credit. The last way to get
    on-board credit is if you’re a shareholder in a
    particular cruise company, and you’ll find that you can
    apply for on-board credit. So for example, I hold shares in the Carnival Cruise Corporation, and I use that whenever
    I’m going on a cruise to apply for extra on-board credit. Again, it varies based on the
    length of time of the cruise and the cruise line. It does involve a little bit of admin, because you have to contact them, you have to send them
    a copy of your booking, a copy of your shareholding, but you can get extra on-board credit by owning shares in a
    particular cruise company. So those are the nine key ways
    you can get on-board credit. Once you’ve got on-board credit, what on earth can you spend it on and what are the best things to spend it once you’re on board? Before we look at what you
    can spend on-board credit on there are probably four key watch outs about on-board credit that you
    should know when you get it and before you think about
    what you’re going to spend it on. First of all, really
    important, is in most cases on-board credit is non refundable. So if you don’t spend it on board, they’re not going to give you the cash. So you need to make sure that you spend all of your on-board credit on board. And the way you can do that, of course, is track it either by getting a printout, from Guests Services,
    or nowadays on the app, or the interactive television
    on most cruise lines. But really important, you’re
    not going to get the cash back, so make sure that you’re
    planning and spending all of your on-board credit
    when you’re on the ship. Most cruise lines won’t
    let you use on-board credit for things you book in advance. So there are a couple that will say, the cruise I was just
    on, Oceania for example, they did let you pre-book things and allocate it against
    your on-board credit. But many other cruise lines have been on if you pre-book things
    online, excursions, drinks, packages, internet, whatever it is, it doesn’t come off your on-board credit. So you have to wait
    until you’re on the ship before doing that. So check very carefully
    if your cruise line lets you allocate prebooking
    stuff to your on-board credit. The third key watch out is what
    you can spend on-board credit does differ slightly by cruise line. So I’m going to talk about the
    things you can spend it on but do listen very carefully because there are some cruise lines that won’t let you spend on-board
    credit on certain things. The big and easiest guideline though when it comes to on-board
    credit is pretty much anything that you can use your cruise
    card for, on the ship, normally you can allocate
    to on-board credit. So that’s kind of an easy guideline. So let’s take a look, first
    of all at what you can and then at what you can’t
    spend on-board credit on. There are 10 key things that you can normally spend on-board credit on. The first of those is excursions, and this is often what I use a
    lot of my on-board credit for. You can find all sorts
    of range of excursions at all sorts of prices,
    and you can allocate your on-board credit to it, it’s a great way of
    spending on-board credit because excursions can be
    one of the biggest on costs to your cruise fare. So excursions is a really good idea to allocate on-board credit to. The second thing that I like to use on board credit for is gratuities. You’ll find pretty much on
    every single cruise line, you can use on-board credit
    to offset gratuities. Now, there are one or two
    exceptions so double check and if you’re not sure
    ask at Guest Services when you get on board,
    if your on-board credit is going to be allocated against gratuities. But most of the most cruise lines I have been on will allow you to offset that. And of course, that’s a cost that you often haven’t budget for, or you forget, and that can mount up. You can spend $200 or more per person on gratuities on a week long cruise. So on-board credit is a great way of kind of negating that impact. The third thing that I
    like to use on-board credit because I see it as sort of
    free money is spa treatment. Spa treatments on cruise
    ships can be quite costly. So using on-board credit is
    a great way of making that more of a justifiable expense. So I like to use on-board
    credit for spa treatments if I have any leftover after
    gratuities and excursions. Another great use of
    onboard credit is for WiFi. WiFi can be pretty expensive on board and you can use on-board credit to buy it. Drinks is also something you could charge against on-board credit. So either buying a drinks
    package or drinks ad hoc. I tend to buy drinks ad
    hoc using my on-board credit rather than drinks package. I don’t drink a lot so I
    find that ends up being a better use of on-board credit
    than buying a drinks package, but you can use on-board credit to buy drinks ad hoc or drinks packages. The other key things
    that you can use it for is if they have a cabana area
    or sort of a retreat area, you can use on-board credit for that. You can use it for specialty dining. So if you want to go and eat
    at one of the restaurants, you can use on-board credit for that. You can use it for shopping
    in the on-board shops. So that’s a great thing
    if you have gifts to buy if you have on-board credit left. The photographs on board the ship. And the other thing that you can do, which is great for many people
    is you can use it for treats. So if you like specialty coffees, gelato, those kind of things in those shops, you can normally use on-board
    credit to buy those things. So those are the 10
    things that you can buy. So what can’t you use on-board credit for. Now, pretty much every single ship there are three key things you
    can’t use on-board credit for. First of all, the medical centre. So if you need any treatment
    in the medical centre, you can’t use on-board credit. Secondly, most cruise lines
    will not let you use it for gambling, or bingo, there
    are a couple of exceptions, and that does change over time. So particularly with
    Carnival and Royal Caribbean, you can often use on-board credit. So just double check if
    you’re going on those. Most of the other lines I’ve
    come across don’t let you. So do double check, but
    assume that you can’t use it for gaming and gambling. And the third thing you can’t use it is to book your next cruise. Certainly when you’re on a cruise, lots and lots of people
    book their next cruise but unfortunately you can’t use on-board credit as your deposit. on-board credit, it’s free
    money, work at those nine things to try and get as much
    onboard credit as you can. I had loads of onboard
    credit on my last cruise it was fantastic because I can do things that I probably wouldn’t
    normally do on a cruise, and it felt like it wasn’t
    costing me any money. I have loads more Cruise
    Tips For Travellers videos, so why don’t you watch another
    one of those right now.

    Lessons Learned in Bali @ The 2018 Drop Ship Lifestyle Retreat

    January 18, 2020


    – Yo, what’s up, guys? Anton here, from Drop Ship Lifestyle, and welcome to this
    week’s Drop Ship Weekly. What is today? I think it’s Thursday, November first. November already, it’s insane, and yeah, if I look a
    little shot right now, lookin’ a little rough,
    that’s because I am. The past ten days, I think I’ve been on planes
    for like 40-something hours. If you saw last week’s episode,
    you saw I was out in Bali for the Drop Ship Lifestyle Retreat, our fifth annual retreat. Beyond that, on the
    traveling, on top of it, we also just closed Drop Ship Lifestyle, so we can make a new version. That you could see, I don’t know, one of those screens, they have the website pulled up there. So I’ve been working with
    the team to get that set up, so we could build the new version. That’s on top of setting
    up holiday promotions. And I mean, the list of things
    that we’re doing right now goes on and on and on,
    it’s a busy time of year, and I think last night I
    slept for, I don’t know, like five hours, ’cause I’m so jet lagged. So apologize about yeah, not
    being 100% mentally here. But I did wanna get you today’s video that kinda shares some
    things that I learned from this year’s retreat. So, if you see all this
    stuff behind me too, I also wanna show you some things I’m excited about before we start. First off, this thing
    came in while I was gone. Yeah, the room’s a mess. This came in from ClickFunnels, which we use for some of our info stuff, and some lead gen for e-com stuff. But pretty cool, got an award for doing over eight figures with them, so thank you ClickFunnels, thank you Russell Brunson
    for shipping that out. Always appreciate things like that. But what I’m more excited about is what’s in this box right here. And this is the first hundred
    or so copies of my new book, “Drop Ship Secrets”. So yeah, we have been working on this for, I don’t know, a while now, a while now. We had to extend the
    deadline a bunch of times, but the book is written, these
    are the finalized copies, and again, we ordered, I think
    it’s the first hundred copies so we could have them here in Austin. Kinda be able to just, you know, have them to send them out
    with different secrets. Nothing I’m gonna talk about yet, but some different things we
    wanna include for our members. So yeah, that’s the real exciting part. But something else that’s
    caused more work than normal, and yeah, this, this look. But with that being said, I’ll be talking more
    about that in the future. What I really wanna talk about in this week’s episode of
    Drop Ship Weekly again, is kind of a recap of lessons learned from the Drop Ship Lifestyle retreat. So, let’s get into this week’s
    episode of Drop Ship Weekly. (upbeat folk-pop instrumental) So I got the schedule
    pulled up on my phone here, just so I don’t miss anything. And just if you’ve ever
    been to a retreat before, or like, seen any of our
    videos from previous retreats, the way these things work
    is basically half the day. In the morning is presentations, then the afternoons are
    all different excursions. Like this year, we went
    white water rafting, and to a monkey forest,
    a coffee plantation, like all things like that. But I’m gonna talk about
    lessons from the actual talks. So day one, right, day
    one of presentations, the first talk was from a buddy of mine, guy that’s been with Drop Ship Lifestyle almost since the beginning. He was even at our first
    retreat in Chiang Mai, in Thailand back in 2014. His name is Larry Huang, and he gave an awesome presentation. Like, really appreciate it. Now, I’ve reached out to Larry,
    maybe like, six months ago, to ask him if he could speak. Because I know what
    industry he’s in, right? I know what products he sell,
    I know what products he sells. I know what niche he’s in, and I know it’s super competitive. So I said, Larry, can you
    just talk about, you know, some things you’re doing to
    have a seven figure business in a very competitive industry. Because I know a lot of people
    face the same thing, right? They choose something that there’s a lot of competition with, and they don’t really know what they need to do to stand out. So what I liked about Larry’s talk is he didn’t just give proactive tips, which he gave a lot of, right, things to do get new traffic, to basically stand out
    from the competition. But what I really liked about his talk is he also spent a good portion of it kinda talking about how
    to be on defense, okay. What to do when people try to rip you off. Because here’s the thing, if you’re in a competitive industry, when you become one of the top players, you gotta believe that there’s a lotta shady people out there that think building an e-commerce store is as easy as stealing from someone. So maybe taking images that
    you have on your website that are your own. Maybe going as far as copy
    and pasting customer reviews that your customers left on your website and putting them on theirs. So all kind of other shady
    things like violating MAP policy, again, stealing custom descriptions. But a lot of what he does
    and what his team focuses on to make sure that if
    people steal from them, that it gets taken down very quickly. So he spent sometime talking
    about Shopify’s DMCAs, that’s the Digital
    Millennium Copyright Act, and that’s basically how you
    can get websites taken down. So some tips he shared were basically to have watermarks on all of
    your image, images I should say beyond your main product photo, because that one, you can’t
    run Google product listing ads if your main photo has a watermark. So having that on any additional photos that are yours, that are your own, and same thing, actively
    looking for the facts to see if your reviews are being taken, and put on any other
    websites as they pop up. And when that does happen, again you could reach out to Shopify, and they will take down those pages on other people’s stores. If they’re built on another platform, you can do the same thing, reach out to their hosting company, and basically, it’s a
    way to make sure, again, that you don’t make it
    easy on anybody, right? Don’t let anybody steal from you, and actually have a chance to win. Even though I firmly believe those people, you know, they’ll fail anyway, ’cause again, they think it’s
    as easy as just stealing, and it’s not. They don’t realize
    there’s a whole other side to the business, but it doesn’t mean you should
    even give them a chance. So again, some good tips on
    how to make content your own, and then, how to shut down
    people if they try to copy you. So the next talk that we had
    was from Michael Erickson. If you’re part of Drop Ship Lifestyle and part of our community,
    then you’re familiar with him. He runs a company called
    Search Scientists, they’re actually based here
    in Austin, Texas now as well. I met Michael on the other
    side of the world years ago, and his ad agency, Search Scientists, they’re ranked in the top three percent of all Google ad agencies, because they run a lot of Google ads for a lot of different e-commerce brands, and yeah, they do a
    really good job with it. So his talk, he always gives good talks whenever he, when he comes out. He named it “Avengers Paid
    Traffic Infinity Wars”, okay, so went through all the stones that Thanos was collecting
    in the Avengers movie, but related them to e-commerce, right? So, what are the different
    areas you need to succeed in, and he talked about all different things, like email marketing, remarketing. He talked about different
    ways to have your, basically, products optimized before your customers will ever see them, when they’re on Google. So again, a whole bunch of front-end tips, but one of the big points from
    his talk and one that I loved and one that I really hope
    resonated with everybody, is he was talking about
    basically the things that you do that people don’t see when
    they come to your website, and when I say people,
    I mean your competitors, but these things that you
    do that make you different. That make your profit
    margins so much more. That can give you double
    your return on ad spend that you would have if you don’t do them. And the beauty of this, right, when you’re doing all these things that he spoke about in the background, then you have, you know, your future competitors
    trying to copy you, trying to get into your industry, and they’re wondering,
    like, this isn’t profitable. How are these other websites
    making money, right? And it’s because of the things that you cannot see on the front end. It’s because of the marketing systems, it’s because of the email follow-ups. All these things that could make you twice as much as someone
    like I just mentioned before, someone that’s just trying to rip you off. You know, people, if you
    think it’s as easy, again, as going to a website
    and just scraping it, meaning like stealing all the
    content and putting it up, that’s not what makes people successful. So again, Michael’s talk was focused on all those backend things, but first of all, just how to
    optimize your product feed, to make sure you appear for more relevant searches on Google, again, how to do Facebook
    remarketing the right way, to get you up to a .26 percent
    bump in your conversion rate, I’m sorry, 26 percent bump
    in your conversion rate, and then how to use email marketing to get another ten percent
    lift in conversions. Do all these things, your
    conversion rate could double, your return on ad spend could be twice as high
    as it would without them. So, really cool talk,
    as always, from Michael. From there we went into the next day, and I kicked it off by
    giving a talk on automations. So I’ll probably share some
    of this over the next year on the YouTube channel. I’ll definitely be sharing all of it inside of the Drop Ship
    Lifestyle members area, for version 7.0, which is
    why we’re closed right now, because I’m building that. But I talked about basically how you can replace multiple people, multiple virtual assistants,
    by using different automations that kinda have things running
    24/7, 365 in the background, so how to replace people with tools that make your organization
    perform better, that just don’t make mistakes, that will make you more money,
    that will save you more time. So again, I focused, you know, purely on automations for that talk. After that, we had Lewis
    Smith, and he’s from the UK. Love his story, he came out
    to our retreat last year in Mexico, in Playa Del Carmen. I still remember our conversation, we were hanging out down in Mexico, talking about kinda what he
    should do with his store, where he was at, where he wanted to be, and just amazing story. He talked about in his presentation how he implemented some
    of the advice I gave him, basically just getting every
    single supplier out there, uploading every product he could find, and he talked about how it was kind of like a part time thing back then, and how within a few months,
    it led to a seven figure store, him being able to leave a really
    well paying job in the UK, and now, him and his wife are just traveling around the world, running their store, growing more. So not only did he share that inspiration, like what could happen in
    such a short amount of time, but he also gave a whole bunch of tips that he uses to manage his team, again, of virtual assistants, while being remote, while
    traveling the world. So, really cool, of course, appreciate Lewis being out
    there and sharing that. After that, we had Carla come up and talk. Now, Carla is one of our
    members from Australia, and I love her story,
    because she’s posted a lot, at least when she was
    first getting started, she was sharing a lot of updates on our private Facebook group, for members of our communities, and she was talking about
    things she was struggling with. She was asking a bunch of questions, and she, you know, like
    anybody, felt stuck. And then, what started to happen is the posts started to
    get a little bit different. They went from, like,
    how do I do these things, to hey, I got my first sale. Hey, I did my first 10,000 in sales. Hey, I just broke six figures in sales. And like, it just was snowballing, like going up and up and up. And what I love about Carla’s story is she did this and she’s
    doing this with three kids, working from home while
    the kids are at school, and she’s able to build this massive, massive
    business in Australia. So she shared a whole bunch of tips, kinda her story, again, super inspirational and motivational, but kinda tips on how to get things done when you are raising a
    family at the same time. And you know, we’ve had a bunch of talks over the past five years
    at different retreats. I gotta say, there’s never been any that I would consider emotional, but Carla’s definitely was. She spoke a little bit at the end about kinda being a
    woman in this industry, or a woman in business in general, and shared some personal stories about being out with family, where people automatically defaulted to asking the men around,
    like hey, how are things going with your job or your business? And yeah, just gave everybody
    kind of a good reminder that, you know, there’s a lot of women, and there are, in the room. Women make up a big
    percent of our community, but you know, it’s okay to ask them how their businesses are going as well, ’cause we have a ton of successful women within Drop Ship Lifestyle, and outside of the community as well. Definitely kinda like
    food for thought, right? Like, it’s not just always
    about what’s the guy up to, and after her presentation,
    I kinda had the mic, and looking around the room for Q and A’s, and I saw a bunch of people
    getting kinda teary eyed, because she’s been through a
    lot to get to where she is, but it just goes to show, you know, motivation over everything,
    never giving up over everything, that’s how you win, and I definitely appreciated
    the fact that after her talk, she just had a massive group of people around her asking questions, but also just thanking her for her talk. So again, thank you, Carla,
    I definitely appreciate it, and I know everybody in
    the room did as well. And Carla also brought
    cookies for everybody, so you can never go wrong
    there, that was awesome. So the final day, we had three talks. I gave the first talk, which was all about building your brand. I shared a new niche I’m getting into, and kinda my plans for
    the next 12 to 18 months. Shared some of the
    strategies that I’m doing to build a new brand, not
    just with drop shipping, but I gave a bunch of
    different monetization methods that I’ll be using, and I
    also kind of told everybody who I think it’s a good
    model for, and who it’s not, but what I was talking about is kinda the next level
    of e-commerce, right? What you do if you want to be the brand. Not just with making your
    own physical products, but if you wanna be the
    authority in your space, you know, the path that I think is the one of least
    resistance to get there. So again, exactly what I’m
    doing with our new brand, and then show people how they can copy it with their brands, as well. After that, we had Justin
    Cooke, from the Empire Flippers. He gave a great talk, you
    know, good friend of mine, I love Empire Flippers. If anybody’s looking to
    buy a site or sell a site, go to EmpireFlippers.com,
    check out their marketplace, really, you know, just tons
    of good opportunity there, both on the buying and selling side. But what Justin spoke about
    was basically how to get a higher valuation for your business. Okay, so if you wanna go
    ahead and sell your store, what can you start doing now, what should you do one
    year out, three months out, but what I really liked about his talk is he gave specific examples of the past 12 months at Empire Flippers, of drop shipping sites they’ve sold. And this is millions and millions and millions of dollars worth. So he showed some of the
    niches that they were in, some of the differences between the ones that got 30x multiples, and
    the ones that got closer to 20, so again, real world examples of things you could do to
    make your store more valuable. Now, yes, this is important
    if you wanna sell it, because of course you’re
    gonna get more money, but it’s also important just if you’re gonna run it yourself, because you should want to run a business that’s more valuable, right? Pretty common-sensical, but again, he gave real world examples of what to do to make that happen. Some things involved how
    many suppliers you work with, how diverse your traffic is, basically how long you’ve been around for, if your sales and profit is
    trending up or trending down, and then he gave a bunch of tips of things to do along the way, to make those numbers more attractive, again, to a potential buyer in the future. And then, the last talk of
    that day was from Johnny Jen. You might know him from his
    podcast, “Travel Like A Boss”, or from his website, JohnnyFD.com. He’s been a buddy of mine
    since I moved out to Thailand, Chiang Mai, like again, I don’t
    even know, four years ago, and he is a successful member
    of Drop Ship Lifestyle, but what’s really cool
    about Johnny’s story and the reason I asked him to speak, is because, out of everybody
    that at least talks publicly about their results, their numbers, he’s the one that also talks about what he does with that money. So a lot of people start making
    five, ten, 20 grand a month, and their first thought is,
    I need the bigger house, I need the fancy cars, I
    need all this high end stuff. And what’s been cool
    about Johnny’s journey and how he documents it is he’s always been good about, I’m making this amount of money, now I’m gonna save this much. So I know he’s, you know,
    he is frugal, technically. He travels the world nonstop, so it’s not like he’s not doing
    anything, but he’s very good about making good
    investments with his money, not just into different markets, but into different real estate funds, and basically, he’s been
    able to grow a big return on his drop shipping profits, just by, again, being
    smart with his money. So I thought that was a lesson that would be important
    for everybody there, because a lot of people, you
    don’t know what to do, right? You start making money, you
    think you should spend it, or you just don’t know any better, so you spend it as fast as you make it. So I wanted Johnny just
    to talk about his journey, and kind of where he’s put money, and how he’s been able
    to turn it into more, and not blow it all, right? So pretty cool talk there as well, and then again, those were
    like the daytime talks, followed by afternoons full of networking, and lots of fun late nights as well. Beyond all the talks,
    one of the biggest things that I would consider a lesson learned while just connecting with
    people in the community, basically, everybody that I spoke to that’s running a big business right now, right, when I say big
    business, I’m talking, let’s just call it over 70,000
    dollars a month in sales with the Drop Ship Lifestyle model, it just kept coming up
    again and again and again, and that was team building. So having at least one full
    time virtual assistant, many people have more than one, but at least one person that basically becomes
    your business manager. Not just someone you find randomly and expect to come in and
    build everything for you, but someone that you bring in. Maybe they get a small, small, small upside of the business
    every month in sales, but someone you work
    with day in and day out that can basically just start taking over the day to day things. Because that allows you to
    focus on what actually matters, the more big picture stuff, and the things that’ll
    really move the needle as you scale up and up and up. So basically, for everybody watching this, if you’re running your store right now, honestly, even if you’re making
    only your first few sales, my advice would be, bring
    someone on your team sooner than later. Something I don’t think a lot about, because we’ve had a team in place for, you know, a decade now, but I definitely realize
    that for everybody that’s starting from
    nothing and coming up fast, having at least one person
    in place to help with that is a big part of the journey, so yeah, keep that in mind,
    get someone sooner than later. Any questions about that,
    or any of the talks, let me know in the comments below. If you do have access
    to Drop Ship Lifestyle and you have the premium version or above, once we have these edited talks, they will be put into the members area. We’ll send out an email when that’s ready. And same thing goes with version
    7.0 that I’m building now. Basically, usually what we
    do every year when we close is, like, start from, you know, nothing. Members keep access to the members area, but then we usually build
    another members area, and then, you know,
    transfer everybody over. What we’re doing this year is we’re gonna update
    what’s already there, so everything’s gonna be new, but same Courses.DropShipLifestyle.com. So if you have access now,
    again, you didn’t lose anything, you can go in there. And again, as we’re
    building this new content, as we’re putting together
    the newest version, it’s gonna be happening
    live in your members area, so you’ll see that over
    the next, you know, however long it takes to build this thing. So yeah, that’s pretty much it, guys. For everybody that was at the retreat, thank you for coming,
    I had an amazing time, I hope you did too,
    definitely seemed like it, ’cause, yeah, it was just
    non-stop fun, networking, and I think super motivational,
    which is always good. And of course, thank you to all the speakers that were there, thank you to everybody that celebrated, that was just a part of it, and really look forward to
    doing it all again next year. By the way, we’ve been planning
    already next year’s retreat, I think we’re gonna do Europe,
    I think it’s gonna be Prague, but I will keep you
    posted on that as well. You know, we’ve done the states, we’ve done Hawaii, we’ve done Mexico, we’ve done Thailand, we’ve done now Bali, I think it’s time for Europe,
    so it might be Prague. Let me know what you think
    about that in the comments, or let me know if you have
    any other suggestions. That being said, guys,
    we’ll wrap up this episode. If you got value, as always,
    please give it a thumbs up. If you’re not subscribed
    yet, click that button, and I will see you next
    week, for Drop Ship Weekly. Thank you, everybody. (upbeat folk-pop instrumental)

    Bucket List: Aircraft Carrier

    January 18, 2020


    [RINGTONE] Commander Flanders, you
    got any good news for us? Got some good news. You guys got the green
    light for three days on one of our aircraft carriers
    in the Pacific, USS Nimitz. I’ve looked over your
    list, it’s very ambitious, but we’re going to
    do our best to help you check those things off. OK. Should be a good few days What about maybe me
    getting in an F-18 and soaring in the skies? Wow, uh, it could be tough
    to do on the carrier, but we’ll see what we can do. All right, Commander Flanders. We appreciate it. We’ll see you guys
    in a few weeks. Welcome to our home for
    the next three days. Everybody has a bucket list. That list of things you’ve
    always wanted to do, whether it’s a wild adventure
    or a breathtaking moment. We want to take
    these experiences and share them with you. Welcome to Bucket List. [INTRO MUSIC] Uh, we’re lost. To put the massive size of
    this ship into perspective, the USS Nimitz is over
    three football fields long, holds 6,000 people,
    and houses 60 jets. So what’s the price
    of this floating city? $4.5 billion dollars. This is our master
    list, everything we’re hoping to pull off while
    we’re on the aircraft carrier. Time to kick things off
    out on the flight deck. So we just got word that
    we’ve been greenlighted to go out onto the flight
    deck where the planes are taking off and landing. We’re shooting the planes
    off the runway ourselves. Let’s go! Make sure you get
    that chin strap. Yeah. OK. This is literally
    a dream come true. The yellow shirts on the
    deck are the shooters. They help launch and
    recover all the aircraft. Earlier today, we
    had the chance to be trained by a Navy Shooter. He taught us all we needed
    to know to shoot off a jet. Thumbs up, and then
    I’m going to drop, and whatever you’re ready. Shoot Shoot, baby. I’ve wanted to do
    something like this since I saw the movie “Top Gun.” Each Navy Shooter launches the
    Jets With his or her own style. So naturally, we decided to
    put a little Dude Perfect flair to it. I think for me, personally,
    I’m going here, bow and arrow, pull back, boom! We’re waiting on the tower
    to give us the green light. I am freaking out! [SCREAMS] Yeah! Yeah! I mean, I got to be honest, the
    timing of that was flawless. Unbelievable performance. Codes! Hey! Great job, great job. Thank you! I can’t really hear what you’re
    saying, but I’ll take it! The dab is never dead! Never dead! [MUSIC PLAYING] I’m nervous! Man, that was insane. All right, here’s
    the deal, guys. They just cleared the deck,
    time for a little knockout on the aircraft carrier. Let’s do this, guys! Next up, probably my favorite. Hitting golf balls off the
    back of an aircraft carrier. Don’t worry folks, we’ve
    got biodegradable balls. These suckers dissolve. Gar, how you feeling? Feel good. Nice. Let’s bombs away, baby! Never expected to be
    playing basketball in the middle of the ocean. I’m a little worried about
    hitting it in the water. It seems like a tight fairway. Oh, it is clutch, but it
    is right of the fairway. Hey, this is the XO. That’s out of bounds. You’re going to have
    to hit a provisional. Out of bounds! You’ve got to hit a provisional! That message was from
    the XO, the captain from the top of the tower. Sir, yes, sir. Ty, get him! See you, boys! Yes! It’s probably the most fun
    knockout game I’ve ever played. It’s pretty awesome. OK! Great shot. I’ve never club twirled on
    an aircraft carrier before. That’s nice! Oh, that’s fun. We have one ball remaining each,
    and it’s happy Gilmore time. Good luck to you, Gar! Oh! What a bomber. Not bad. Oh! Oh! The club is it’s scraped. It’s scraped pretty good. Oh, wow! You launched that! Oh! Sparks! We got sparks! Ladies and gentlemen,
    we have officially come up with our call signs. On the end here, the big
    guy, we’ve got lactose. Over here, we’ve got sunburn. Sparks, Clearthroat,
    and Slantnose. So, not bad. Hey, I could use some ice cream. Yeah. No! No more ice cream! Shut him down. I haven’t got an official no,
    I’m sitll holding out for hope to wakeboard behind the ship. Not happening. He would die, if
    it was right there. We are going down into
    this tiny little red hole, where we’ll get a chance
    to serve some sailors. Good thing I went on keto! After spending a
    full day on the deck, we decided to cool
    down underneath, with a Navy tradition. Ice cream social time. Pistachio will be
    the new top flavor, you just have to sell it. I have cookies and cream. This will be the number one. How can I help you, sir? Oreos. M and M’s, double scoop of both? Sure. Double scoop of both! Kind of gotta get in there. Can I interest you in
    some pistachio today? No, gross. Call this the no
    look Oreo serve. How’s it going, man? The official flavor in
    the US Navy, pistachio! No, I’m good with this one. Thank you, though. Haha, yeah! I have yet to be turned down. Feel like we should
    pick that up. So we’re on a runway where
    the planes go, and we just want to make sure that
    everything is off of it, so that it doesn’t get
    sucked up into the engine and bad things happen. So, Tyler is looking
    for washers, metal. Bird poop. Shrapnel, whatever. You gotta get that. Totally honest with you
    guys, we’re not proud of it, but when I came
    out the door, I was holding a little bowl
    of Cheerios from dinner, and they were like, oh, you
    can’t bring that out here. That’s the kind of thing
    we’re trying to get rid of. Got some FOD! No way! Mine’s bigger. Guys, wanna find more FOD? We need the FOD bag. Oh, she looks amazing! And warm? Oh, yeah. Oh, hot! Boy, it’s a little closer
    quarters than I imagined! I think we might have
    gone one size too small. I think this might have
    been the four person. This stars out here
    are next level! To our knowledge, this
    will be the first time a fish has been caught off the
    back of an aircraft carrier. This could be a monumental day. And it could also be a fail,
    we’ll have to figure it out. Eh, we’ll see. I don’t know if anybody on
    earth has ever done seven rods off the back of a ship. Haha, yeah! That’s what we’re going for. That’s where we wanna be! With all the lines in
    the water, at this point it was just a waiting game. So we headed up to see what
    the other guys were up to. We’re up here on
    the flight deck. I’m about to fly our
    own version of a jet. The ship itself is
    about $4 billion, all the planes together
    onboard, another $4 billion. The radars up there? They got to be expensive. I’d say at least a
    few more billion. Everything is in billions here. Plus if you’d crash,
    then we’d have to look for all the
    FOD on the runway, so that you don’t
    cause more damage. Foreign object debris. So you’re saying,
    millions in damage, maybe billions, maybe billions. Definitely billion. And then 3,000 angry sailors. Yeah. Good luck with that! Have fun. It’s gonna be great. I’m feeling confident
    in this suit, let’s go. [CHEERING] Here she comes, everybody give
    her a salute on the way by. Permission to buzz the tower! Holy smokes! What is wrong with you? What is wrong with you? Heads up, guys, coming in hot! [SCREAMING] Thought getting
    permission for this was going to be the hard part. Turns out, landing was. This is insane, I’m a pilot! Down! Get down! It’s running out of battery. Get it down! Pilot Cory is totally fine. He is safe. Hey, you just peaked. Congratulations. Thank you, thank you. Nice peak. Very nice peak. Hey, sorry about scaring
    you guys back there. I can’t believe
    we just did that! You know what I always say, this
    is my favorite part of the day, when we’re eating. Lot of hungry folks out here. We’ve got a little
    bit of a burnt patty. We’re going to chum the
    water, head back down, do some more fishing
    after the tailgate. So this is the burnt
    burger patty toss. We’ve got approval to
    throw basketballs off of the top of an
    aircraft carrier. Hard to believe, but it’s true. When you get permission,
    you chunk away. I’ve been given the
    green light to jump into one of these hush puppies,
    and take a little fly around. Gonna be sick! Maybe don’t hang on
    the nose cone of a jet. It’s pretty durable. Thank you for your service. Enjoy that. This has got to be the
    best burger restaurant in the middle of the Pacific. This is the aircraft
    carrier shot. Bang! Let’s go! What an honor to be
    on the USS Nimitz with these wonderful
    sailors cheering us on. What a treat. Currently in the bridge, this
    is where they drive the ship. This is where everything
    mega important happens, including checking
    in on our fishermen. Got the pros driving
    the ship right now, I’m going to see
    if they’re going to let me take a quick shift. Guys, I am officially
    in control of this ship. It’s a terrifying thought. Man overboard. Little to the left? It’s not my fault, OK? What’s happening? You can whip it to the left,
    and then this is your indicator. Yeah, you got to
    whip it to the left. Dude, you are– What are you doing? Just drove an aircraft carrier. This is by far the biggest,
    most powerful, most expensive vehicle I’ve ever driven. Well, it’s been a fun few
    days here on the Nimitz. We are getting ready to
    leave the ship, which I don’t know if I didn’t think
    about it beforehand or not. But we do have to
    get slingshotted off from the catapult. So that’ll
    be interesting to experience. It’ll be a doozy. Getting a little
    nervous about that. But– Guys, we got a fish on. What? Oh my gosh, oh my gosh! We got a fish! Go! Go, go go! Fish on! We got a fish on! We got a fish on. We got a wiggler. Yeah, we got it! Land him, land him! [CHEERING] We got the call we had fish
    on, we rushed down here. These guys made it happen,
    they put in the hard work. Thank you guys, job well done. Whoo! Unbelieveable. It’s not how I typically board a
    plane, but I’m pumped about it! What’s up, guys? Slantnose and Sunburn,
    getting ready for departure. See you back on the mainland. Hold on, baby! That was like Mr.
    Freeze times five. Let’s go fly a jet! The Blue Angels is the oldest
    active flight demonstration in the world,
    dating back to 1946 to attract new recruits
    to the United States Navy by showcasing the talents
    of some of the finest pilots on the planet. Some of these
    death-defying maneuvers put these pilots as
    close to 18 inches apart at speeds around
    400 miles per hour. So when the Navy asked us to
    fly, we immediately said yes. We’re going to go
    over three things. We’re going to go over
    cockpit familiarization. What you’re going to experience
    in a jet, positive, negative– So before we were able to
    fly with the Blue Angels, we went through an hour-long
    informative, but boring, training session, which
    we probably should have taken a little more seriously. In the case of ejection,
    he’ll let you know. He’s like, hey, we’re
    going to have to eject. He’s probably going to–
    he’s probably going to– he’s probably going to put it
    in a different perspective. We’re having issues
    with aircraft, we’re going to have to eject. But that will not
    happen today, I promise. Cody’s getting strapped
    in, and he’s going first. He won the rock paper
    scissors battle, and it is minutes
    away from go time. I think he’s freaking
    out a little bit. He’s getting his
    barf bags lined up. I predicted two pass-outs
    and three throw-ups for you. Dude, I’d pass out on
    the Texas giant, man. I’m going to be honest,
    before we showed up today, I was glad I wasn’t
    a part of this. But I really wish
    I was doing it. Well, if this isn’t on your
    bucket list, it should be. Here we go, let’s
    rock and roll, baby. Oh, that’s amazing. There’s no turning back now. Should be a fun ride,
    we’ll see what happens. But I’m looking forward to it. See you guys in the air. All right, we’re going
    to go taxi away here. We’re moving, we’re
    actually moving, oh my God. This is insane! Where are we going? Oh, he’s driving it! See ya! Bye, guys! This will go up there as
    one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. This is Cody, we’re
    in a Blue Angel, we’re about to take off
    in an F-18 Hornet, baby. It’s going to be sweet. All right, you ready to go. I think so. All right, you ready to go? Yes, sir. All right, we’re going to
    check the engines here. You will feel the afterburners
    kick in right there. And there’s 50 knots. There is 100. There’s 140. We’re flying. 330. Oh, he’s moving. You ready to go? He’s moving. Ready, hit it. Going upside down. [LAUGHING] Oh, baby! And that’s how you get to
    3,000 feet pretty quickly. Wow. To the left. Ready, hit it. There’s four. And here comes six. I’m going to bring
    it back around now. We’re going to start
    stepping it up a little bit. There’s one. Two. I could do those all day. Nice. And up we go. So there’s our 2 and 1/2 G’s. Again, we’re just
    going to hold that. If you look to your right,
    you’ll see the smoke trail. And that’s everything
    you just did. So you see that straight
    line and then vertical pull. I’m now going to show you how
    quickly our jet can accelerate. Here comes the afterburners. There they are, kicking in. We’re already at 400, which
    is roughly 700 miles an hour. So that’s probably the fastest
    I’ve ever gone as a human. That absolutely is. There’s one. There’s two. I’m going to pull the jet
    back to finish the maneuver. Thank you again, man,
    for taking us up. Oh absolutely, my pleasure. All right, we’re going
    to go to the left. Ready, hit it. All right, there’s
    our spike at 6 G’s. Then we’re going to back
    it off here a little bit. OK. I got one more thing, I usually
    call it the cherry on top. You can let me know
    if you’re up for it based on how your stomach feels. All right, Tyler, you ready? Yes sir. We’re going to go to the right. Ready. Hit it. Keep working for me,
    we’re almost there. You’re clear for a left turn. Roll it out. Woo! Roll it out. How you doing? Nice. How’d you do? Awesome, baby! Sounds like you did pretty good. I felt good through that one. Bringing home party favors. And welcome back,
    you’re safe on deck. Awesome. That was absolutely incredible. He’s alive! Yeah! Careful with that bag. Man, that was so cool. Oh, you’re pretty pale. Am I? He’s pretty pale. The last one, it just
    takes it out of you. The world is on you. You’re just like,
    don’t go, don’t die! Ahhh! That’s what you looked like. Yeah. I got sick. I’m not going to lie to you. How many times? Five. You barfed five times? Yeah, the spins
    and vertical stuff. And once he comes
    back level, I’m like, I’m still spinning but
    we’re not spinning. You’re nauseous. It’s just pure nausea. It was insane, though. On behalf of the team, I
    want to thank you again for coming out with us. Thank you very much. Appreciate it, man. I do feel like I earned that. Blue Angel, bros. Mav, Goose. I’m Mav, right? No, I’m Mav. What? Obviously. I’m the copilot? You’re the tall Goose. OK, cool. Comment below. Let us know what bucket list
    adventure we should go on next. Special thanks to the US Navy,
    the greatest Navy in the world. You guys are unbelievable. It’s been phenomenal
    meeting you guys. From the sea to the air,
    thank you guys so much. And I don’t know, what
