February 23rd, 2017 — Mike and I went back to the Stranahan River for some more fishing! Only this time, instead of using small lures, we decided to live-line smaller Species of fish. That is when Mike got hit by a really NICE FISH…
This video also includes a little bit of “Behind the Scenes,” where you actually get to see UNCUT footage of what we YouTubers do for our filming. As a Content Creator on YouTube, fishing is fun and everything…but there often a work and business aspect to it. 🙂
Update on this video: after answering 400+ comments here, I realized that a lot of folks have been showing concern as to how we handled the fish here. Since I can’t answer comments here forever, may as well add some stuff here. Hehe. First and foremost, I would like to say that I am very happy to see that! It always makes me happy to see a community that is actually concerned about the fish’s well being, and a community that values safe fish handling skills. Thus, for future references:
(1) Please excuse our ignorance in vertically lifting that fish. After coming back to PA and reading more on the Common Snook (Centropomus undecimalis), I came to the conclusion that the Species itself is pretty sensitive! Of course what was done was done, and whatever was filmed couldn’t be changed. Haha. Therefore, if I do catch big Snook in the future, they will definitely not be lifted that way. To avoid the possibility of internal organs from shutting down due to gravity change, or the rupture of the fish’s isthmus, bigger Snook should definitely be handled with one hand in its belly, and another hand in either its mouth or behind its pectoral fin.
(2) We value our jobs as fishing YouTubers; however, we will of course do our best in the future to keep TROPHY fish outside of the water for a lesser amount of time. 😀 I thought that we did pretty good in this video; however, as we all know, there is always room for improvement!
