  1. Blair I recently read something stating that the hooks do not work themselves out of fish.  It is something I always thought and left hooks in fish.  Something you might want to look into.

  2. i have a question capt. Blair. What type of knot do you use to rig up. just curious. i always use the polymer knot

  3. If you want to fund good sized reds go to mosquito lagoon. My dad caught a 42 inch and a 36 inch in the same day and I caught a 24 inch. Just a suggestion.

  4. Redfish, snook and grouper on this week's episode airing today at 10am ET on @Sportsman Channel . . . let's go now!

  5. Nice video, but…. FUCK DICKS! They are literally paying lobbyists to take away your 2nd amendment rights!!! Look it up! BOYCOTT Dicks! I'm not kidding. Vote for your rights! BOYCOTT Dicks!!!!
