S THAT MANY MORE UNDERNEATH THE SURFACE.(LAUGHS) IT MUST BE HARD TO FIND A PLACE WHERE
THERE S NOT A DEAD TREE.THAT S CORRECT!WORKING THESE DEADLY COMBOS LIKE THIS
IS GREAT FOR KIDS TOO CAUSE IT S SUCH A VISUAL. WHEN IT S SLOW, THEY ALWAYS GOT SOMETHING
TO LOOK AT AND THEY DON T GET BORED.ABSOLUTELY . . . EVEN FOR THE NOVICE ANGLER.
YEA [LAUGHS] OR THE PRO! [LAUGHS]OR THE PRO.WE USE THESE IN
LOUSIANA. WE ABSOLUTELY TORE THE FISH UP. WON A COUPLE REDFISH TOURNAMENTS . . . PLACED
IN THE TOP FIVE IN MANY OF THEM.BLAIR, ALL OF THE DEAD TREES YOU SEE LAYING IN THE
WATER HERE ARE ALL A RESULT OF HURRICANE WILMA THAT WE HAD HERE SIX YEARS AGO. BASICALLY,
THIS IS WHERE THE STORM CAME IN.THE EYE OF THE STORM HIT RIGHT HERE?RIGHT
HERE . . . GROUND ZERO AND AS A RESULT OF THAT ALL OF THESE TREES ARE DECAYING AND DYING
AND FALLING INTO THE WATER CREATING A NATURAL HABITAT FOR THE REDFISH, THE SNOOK, THE TROUT.
SO THIS IS THE HONEY HOLE RIGHT HERE HUH?THIS COULD BE THE SPOT RIGHT
HERE.LET S SEE . . . DID YOU SEE THAT FISH JUMP?YEAH.I VE
BEEN WAITING TO HIT A MULLET IN THE AIR WHEN I CAST.YOU WERE REAL CLOSE ON THAT
ONE. [LAUGHS] THOSE BOBBERS ARE GREAT. THEY MAKE SOME NOISE. THEY KIND OF DRAW ATTENTION
TO THE BAIT.WE USED TO CALL THEM TOURIST RIGS. UNTIL WE WON ABOUT 200 THOUSAND,
I M MEAN ABOUT 150 THOUSAND ON ONE OF THESE THINGS.THE DEADLY COMBO . . . OOH!
HE S LOOKING FOR IT. HE S LOOKING FOR IT. IT S RIGHT HERE UNDERNEATH THIS BIG
ORANGE FLOAT. RIGHT . . . THERE! [LAUGHS]THERE WE GO . . . GET HIM OUT OF THERE.
[LAUGHS]IT TOOK HIM A WHILE TO FIND IT. DIDN T IT?[LAUGHS] IT SURE DID.
AND IT S A REDFISH! ANY GOOD TIME IN THE WINTER IS A GOOD TIME TO CATCH A REDFISH
ESPECIALLY IN SHORTS WHILE EVERYBODY UP NORTH IS FREEZING. [LAUGHS]IN THE MIDDLE
OF DECEMBER RIGHT?THE MIDDLE OF DECEMBER . . . WHAT DO WE HAVE A WEEK AND A HALF BEFORE
CHRISTMAS?YEAHWELCOME TO THIS EPISODE OF ADDICTIVE FISHING. WE RE DOWN
HERE IN THE EVERGLADES. WHILE YOU GUYS ARE FREEZING UP NORTH, WE RE IN SHORTS. IT RAINED
ON US A LITTLE BIT THIS MORNING, BUT WE GOT CAPTAIN BRYAN SANDERS WITH US. OTHERWISE KNOWN
AS THE CHOKOLOSKEE KID, WE RE IN THE EVERGLADES AND WE RE DOING WHAT WE CAN TODAY TO CATCH
SOME FISH AND SHOW THEM TO YOU. WE RE GOING TO SHOW YOU THIS REDFISH REAL QUICK ON WHAT
I USED TO CALL THE TOURIST RIG OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE DEADLY COMBO. HE ABSOLUTELY TORE THAT
D.O.A. SHRIMP UP ON THE DEADLY COMBO. CATCHING REDFISH IN THE EVERGLADES, Y ALL STAY TUNED,
WE LL BE RIGHT BACK SOME MORE ADDICTIVE FISHING RIGHT HERE IN THE EVERGLADES IN THE MIDDLE
OF THE WINTERTIME.ADDICTIVE FISHING IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY DICK S SPORTING GOODS,
EVERY SEASON STARTS AT DICK S. RANGER BOATS, STILL BUILDING LEGENDS ONE AT A TIME. MINN
KOTA, ANYWHERE. ANYTIME. HUMMINBIRD, SIMPLY. CLEARLY. BETTER, WRIGHT & MCGILL, REAL GEAR
FOR REAL FISHERMAN. AND BY LAZER SHARP, SHARPER, STRONGER, LONGER.THAT LOOKS LIKE
A NICE QUIET SPOT FOR THEM TO COME UP AND GET WARM ON THIS NICE DECEMBER DAY IN THE
SUNSHINE. SINCE SNOOK HAS TAKEN SUCH A BEATING DOWN HERE WHAT S YOUR PREDOMINANT SPECIES?
REDFISH?ABSOLUTELY . . . THE THEORY BEHIND IT IS. WE HAD A FISH KILL A COUPLE
OF YEARS AGO. THE WATER TEMPERATURE GOT DOWN INTO THE 4O S FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS. THE FISH
JUST COULDN T HANDLE THAT TEMPERATURE. IT KILLED A LOT OF THE SNOOK. A LOT OF THE CATFISH.
A LOT OF GOLIATH GROUPERS . . . A LOT OF THE PREDATOR FISH, SO THE THEORY BEHIND IT IS,
THE REDFISH ARE REALLY FLOURISHING BECAUSE OF THAT BECAUSE THE LITTLE FRY REDFISH WEREN
T EATEN BY ANY OF THE PREDATOR FISH AND THEY RE ALL GROWING UP. THEY RE ALL A YEAR OR TWO
AND HALF YEARS OLD. THIS PLACE IS ALIVE WITH REDFISH RIGHT NOW.[HOOKUP] THERE
HE IS.A LITTLE SNOOKIE.GOOD TO SEE SOME SNOOK AROUND RIGHT?YEAH,
NO KIDDING.THESE GUYS ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN DOWN HERE NOW.Y S WINTER
HIT EM THAT BAD DOWN HERE TOO HUH?IT WAS REALLY BAD, BLAIR. IT WAS THE MOST
DISGUSTING FEELING TO SEE ALL THOSE DEAD FLOATING FISH.IT S GOOD TO SEE THAT ONE. THAT
ONE CAME IN FROM THE OUTSIDE HUH?YEAH . . . I THINK I CAN GET IT. PRETTY LITTLE
FISH. SILVER WITH YELLOW FINS . . . LOOK AT HIM. LIGHT COLORED FISH.FRESH IN
FROM THE DEEP WATER.LOOKS LIKE ONE OF THOSE SNOOK YOU SEE IN THE TANK AT PROJECT
SNOOK DOESN T IT?OH, YEAH. THOSE SNOOK ARE GETTING TO BE JUST ABOUT THAT SIZE
RIGHT THERE.BLAIR, HOW LONG DO THEY KEEP THOSE SNOOK IN THE HOLDING TANKS THERE
AT PROJECT SNOOK BEFORE THEY RELEASE THEM INTO THE WILD?I THINK, IT S RIGHT
ABOUT A YEAR TO A YEAR AND HALF. THEY LL GET ABOUT 8 TO 10 INCHES LONG. THERE GOES A SHARK
RIGHT THERE. THERE A LITTLE BIT SMALLER THAN THE ONE YOU JUST CAUGHT.O.K.
BUT IT S GOOD SEEING THOSE [HOOKUP] THERE S ONE. IT S GOOD SEEING THOSE LITTLE FISH
IN HERE. I THINK I HAVE ME A . . .?LOOKS LIKE A REDFISH.SNOOK . . . NOT
A BAD. WELL THERE S TWO IN THERE THAT MADE IT THROUGH.THAT S GOOD TO SEE. THAT
S OUR FUTURE SNOOK STOCK RIGHT THERE.LET S BE REAL CAREFUL WITH THIS DUDE.
ISN T THAT FUNNY NOW EVERY SNOOK YOU CATCH YOU BABY TRYING TO GET THEM BACK INTO THE
WATER. YOU RE JUST HOPING THERE GOING TO MAKE A BUNCH OF BABIES.THAT LITTLE DUDE
SURE DID LIKE THAT D.O.A. SHRIMP . . . DEADLY COMBO! YOU DEFINITELY CAN TELL WHEN THEY VE
BEEN IN HERE JUST FOR A LITTLE BIT. THOSE FINS START TURNING YELLOW AND STARTIN GET
A LITTLE DARKER ON THE BACK. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL FISH. GET ON BACK DUDE. I LL DO ANOTHER ONE
OF THOSE.LET S DO IT.WE MIGHT NOT CATCH THE MOGANS SINCE THE MIDDLE
OF DECEMBER BUT WE CAN SURE SHOW THESE FOLKS OUT HERE HOW TO USE THE D.O.A. DEADLY COMBO
S TO CATCH A BUNCH OF FISH, SO Y ALL STAY TUNED AND WE LL BE RIGHT BACK . . . GET THIS
GUY RE-RIGGED . . . WITH SOME MORE ADDICTIVE FISHING.WELCOME BACK FOLKS . . . AS
YOU CAN SEE OUR CONDITIONS ARE CONSTANTLY CHANGING, SO WHAT WE RE DOING TO COMPENSATE
FOR THAT IS CHANGING OUR LOCATION EVERY TIME WE GET A WEATHER CHANGE. THE TIDE KEEPS COMING
IN AND KEEPS CHANGING OUR POSITIONS AND WE RE STILL USING THE DEADLY COMBO S. AND THE
REASON WE RE USING THEM IS BECAUSE YOU CAN THROW THEM OUT THERE. LET THEM SIT AND THE
BAIT CAN STAY IN THE SAME PLACE FOR A LOT LONGER TIME AND YOU WANT TO JUST GIVE YOUR
ROD A LITTLE BIT OF A TWITCH. WE USED TO CALL THIS ONE A TOURIST RIG UNTIL WE WON A BUNCH
OF MONEY USING THIS IN THE TOURNAMENTS. I NEVER REALLY USED A POPPING CORK WITH A RUBBER
BAIT UNDERNEATH IT. YOU REALLY WOULDN T THINK A RUBBER BAIT UNDER A POPPING CORK, BUT AS
YOU SEE IT WORKING. IT S WORKING WELL.[HOOKUP] HOW BOUT RIGHT THERE! [LAUGHS]
[LAUGHS]DO YOU TAKE A LOT OF FAMILIES OUT . . . LOT OF KIDS?YES
WHAT A BETTER WAYIT S A GREAT WAY FISHINTRODUCE THEM INTO FISHING AND
USE ONE OF THESE DEADLY COMBOS CAUSE IT IS SO VISUAL. WHAT I MEAN BY THAT, IF THEY GET
BORED SITTING THERE CASTING OR JUST DROWNING A BAIT ON THE BOTTOM LIKE WE SAY, YOU CAN
COME OUT HERE WITH THESE . . . COME WITH BRIAN AND HE CAN TELL YOU RIGHT WHEN THEIR GOING
TO HIT.[MISS FISH] YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME![LAUGHS]WHAT

. . . I HEARD THAT THERE GOING TO TRY AND GO TO TWO REDFISH NOW?IT S BEEN PROPOSED
BUT IT HASN T BEEN VOTED ON YET, BUT IT S BEEN PROPOSED.ALRIGHTIF
THE REDFISHING . . . THE REDFISH ARE THAT PREVALENT NOW AND THE SNOOK WERE HIT SO HARD
BY THE FREEZE WE HAD A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, I M ALL FOR RAISING THE LIMITS ON THE REDFISH
AND PROTECTING THE SNOOK. IT S JUST GOING TO PRESERVE THE LONGEVITY OF OUR FISHING HERE.
NO KIDDING AND THE REDFISH THIS SIZE, RIGHT AT THE MINIMUM 18 INCHES ARE SO MUCH
BETTER TO EAT ANYWAY.ABSOLUTELYTHAT FISHES BELLY IS ALL FAT. INCOMING . . . SEE
YOU LATER DUDE.THERE HE IS! THAT S A GOOD FISH BLAIR.LET S SEE IF

HUH? HENCE, THE NAME REDFISH.OUT IN LOUISIANA, WE CALL THEM ORANGE PUMPKINS.
THE WATER S REAL KINDA DARK AND CLEAR. IT S GOT A LOT OF TANIC IN IT, BUT IT S CLEAR
AND THEY LOOK LIKE PUMPKINS OUT THERE FLOATING IN THE HYDRILLA. THAT S A PRETTY ONE. LOOK
AT THAT HIS TAILS ABOUT THE SAME COLOR AS THAT ROD.IT SURE IS. [LAUGHS]
WHAT WE VE DONE TODAY FOLKS AS YOU CAN SEE WE RE USING THE DEADLY COMBOS AND WHAT THAT
S DOING IS IMITATING SHRIMP SOUNDS. WHEN THAT LITTLE WEIGHT MAKES THAT SOUND AS IT S CLICKING,
IT SOUNDS JUST LIKE A SHRIMP AND THAT S WHAT THEIR REALLY FOCUSED ON EATING RIGHT NOW.
THERE OUT THERE JUST ROOTING AROUND AND THIS TIDE IS BRINGING ALL THESE SHRIMP AND LITTLE
TINY CRABS IN. THAT S WHAT THESE FISH ARE CONCENTRATING ON AND THAT S WHAT THAT DEADLY
COMBO IMITATES . . . THE SOUND A SHRIMP DOWN THERE CLICKING AND AS YOU SEE IT S WORKING.
HOW S THAT BEEF JERKY TREATING YOU?I LIKE IT . . . STAYS WITH ME ALL
DAY LONG. THEY COME IN WAVES.YEAH, THE TIDES GETTING UP THERE A BIT NOW. THE
LOGS ARE REALLY COVERED UP RIGHT HERE. [HOOKSET]THERE HE IS.LITTLE GUY.

BUT HE THINKS HE IS.[LAUGHS]DOESN T HE? OHHHH!HE THINKS HE IS.
THAT S STILL A 20 INCH FISH. [LAUGHS]YOU GOT TO WONDER WHEN THE HATCH OF
ALL THESE FISH WERE CAUSE ALL THESE FISH ARE ALL ABOUT THE SAME SIZE.AREN T THEY?
WE FIGURE IT WAS 2 YEARS AGO.IT HAD TO BE ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO. YEAH.RIGHT
AFTER THAT BIG FREEZE THAT KILLED MOST OF THE PREDATOR FISH.[HOOKSET] THAT
S A TWO YEAR OLD FISH. I LET THAT GUY GET OFF AND HE CAME RIGHT BACK AROUND AND ATE
IT.HE ATE IT DIDN T HE?YEP, ONE THING I M GLAD WE DID TODAY, WE DOWN SIZED
ON THESE RODS BECAUSE THE 7 OR 7 WOULD BE GETTING IT DOWN QUICK. WE DOWN SIZED TO 7
FLATS STICKS. IT MAKES IT A LOT MORE FUN WHEN YOUR CATCHING SMALLER REDFISH LIKE THIS. HE

  1. could you do an episode showing how to put line on the rod? I'm new at fishing and this type of rod is somewhat confusing me.

  2. is it capt. wigging answering the comments on these videos or his manager or something?
    if so i love your show! keeps me entertained foreverrrr

  3. i watched this last night and im going to watch it again this is one of my favorite setups i enjoy stetting up current and drifting down a flat and just fishing this rig

  4. blair i really need your help, its summer and im ready and willing to wake up early to go after trout and reds in the flats but i dont have a boat. do you know anywhere in the martin county/ st lucie area where i can reach the flats from shore? or is it just not possible

  5. If you take the North Causeway to the Ft. Pierce Inlet, there's a little boat ramp/park right over the bridge. I've done pretty good on snook and trout out there. Never caught any reds from there though. It's not quite a flat, but if you're willing to wade a bit, the south side of the road just past the park is also a good spot.

  6. Hey Capt. I love watching your fishing shows there very informative 😀 if you could come check out my channel its a few friends and I just fishin and we got some on recording!

  7. Hey Mr. Wigging's! I'm having some trouble picking out a reel. I need one that I can Carolina rig, use popping cork's, cast lures, and catch some big and small fish. Any recommendations? Thinking about using 20lb. wind tamer on it. I also can't afford a flats blue rod unfortunately so what is a good seven foot, or a class and oz. weight I should look for?

  8. Hello Mr. Wiggins! I have been looking for a good, durable rod for fishing in a big lake and for a novice fisherman! And what kind of bait would you use for fishing for bass, striper, carp, crappie, and perch? Thank you!

  9. looks like fun have u tryed fishing in San Antonio Tex reds r off the chan. hope u could look us up handymenztoa18

  10. hi what bait rig up would you use for the surf in mosquito lagoon in oct/nov? live or artificial? thank you a bunch in advance!

  11. I know I've said it before and its not really relevant but that intro song is freaking killer. Drummer & bass player are awesomely tight and it always fits the vid so well. Nice.

  12. my buddy and I landed a snook up here in jacksonville a few weeks ago, belive me i was shocked when i saw it on the line

  13. Whats a better size pole and reel for 6-10lbs trout and around 20lbs snook 7ft with 3000 sabalos or 7ft 6'' with 3500 sabalos?

  14. You guys are awesome! You respond to your fan-base so quickly.
    Best YouTube channel out there 🙂 I have a good question.
    I'm going to Galveston to fish Friday, the water gets pretty deep can i still use my Cork Popper with live shrimp?

  15. Popping corks work great in dirty water to make noise to ring the dinner bell. If it doesn't work, go with dark colored soft plastics if the water is dirty.

  16. should you fish them on oyster beds? because im in Georgia and there arnt to many places with fallen down trees and a lot of structure near me but there are plenty of oyster beds

  17. ive caught  nothing but trout with my deadly combo.i switched up d.o.a. to the silver flake shrimp…hopefully it will work better for reds….

  18. Instead of a popping cork try a chug bug topwater but take the back hooks off and use whatever you want as the back bait so you pretty much replace to cork with a lure it works amazing for me. And where is this

  19. Hello Mr.Morgan. Will this rig also work in regular water, not necessarily murky like the one your fishing in 

  20. How do you rig the cork? Do you have a leader on the cork? Or does it come like that in the package?

  21. Such a versatile tool , can be used w artificial or live bait …. Love me a popping cork , perfect for floating over oyster bars and in the grass of mill cove …… My go to !!!!

  22. Could you put a popping cork and a live shrimp to make a really attractive bait and rig? Or would you best be stickin with the artificial shrimp bait?

  23. I was fishing with that deadly combo with live shrimp and my friend and I caught 17 redfish and we have a video on YouTube if you want to check it out

  24. I love your opening line in the video. Kids do indeed love this technique . My son has caught snook, reds and trout on these things, we use a cajun thunder but they are all basicly the same. We live in orlando area and drive to wabasso, which is south of sebastian inlet. Take a kid fishing and enjoy teaching them something that will always be with them. One day i will be out there with my grand kids, watching my son or my daughter teaching the same techniques and spots to their kids. Great video

  25. yeah that freeze put a hurtin on the troutskis around peacock pass and the rest of the refuge and backmarsh

  26. if someone has a couple of good spots in florida for reds I'd appreciate the advice. .I'm down here in Palm Beach Fl. Redfish is one I still haven't caught yet.. please come drop your knowledge over here at D.Nasty Fishing . thanks show some support for the sport .. subscribe

  27. I hate it when you drop em in like that first one. I know you are doing right by the fish. The issue is other people think they have dropped 50,000 fish back in the water. They haven't. Please don't encourage that stuff.

  28. Gulp comes out when things really slow down, but for me and most of the people that fish in my boat they swear by DOA lures.

  29. I have a question. I fish in savannah georgia and I am planning on getting doa shrimp. What color should I get for the waters in savannah?

  30. Hey Capt. Wiggins….I have 3 of your rods. I went to Dicks Sporting Goods and they said they have been discontinued. Will you continue to make these rods?

  31. any good spots on land to catch red fish in south florida, im in homestead to be exact. looking forward to catch my first red thanks

  32. Would be a great video if you removed the Trash Studio Music in the Back Ground! I have never been fishing with Music in the background!
