Try to recreate a recipe me and becca had in the florida keys a little while ago and i'm gonna do some sort of pan seared grouper i have no idea what i'm gonna do i'm just gonna figure it out as i go we got some good irish butter here oh look at how yellow that is.
A little garmin masala on the top salt pepper very simple very nice all right fantastic all good we've got four vermilion snapper fillets we're gonna season with salt and pepper then we're gonna put them in panko we're gonna put a little bit of garlic masala lime zest and parmesan cheese on them.
And we're going to bake them all right there we go vermillion snapper baked in panko parmesan cheese with key lime butter and a little bit of scallions and tomatoes you like that babe was that good very good oh excellent come here john come here.
Aye aye aye aye boy that'd be a lot better than maggot infested her cat i'm nice and full i think it's time for round two of shark fishing well me and becca had a scuba diving spearfishing charter planned for.
Tomorrow but uh looks like the weather's gonna cancel that so uh i figured i might as well bust out my wetsuit since i'm going kayaking out there won't freeze my butt off as bad this time there we go there's another big chunk of bait shark fishing is a team sport here and i couldn't do it without my lovely.
Lovely assistant rebecca glad you have your wednesday night oh it's quite pleasant he made it halfway out the wind came offshore pretty aggressively you're gone a long time oh look at that that's a nice one that's.
Uh that's actually a proper kingfish a lot bigger than those babies we've been reeling in oh that's a shark jake well darn it i thought i'd lost my bait the sharks just grabbed a little bit right here they didn't really grab much i think i might need smaller bait.
That might be a little bit better i got changed out of my wetsuit and my lovely wife has joined us it's cold oh oh new species i think that's a little puppy drum a little black drum as the weather gets worse the fish get bigger little king fish see how my fish my shark goes.
that's a hefty guy he feels 300 that was an incredible fight took me over 35 minutes to reel that sucker in i think that was the biggest sandbar shark i've ever caught that thing felt like it was between 250.
300 pounds but i'm tired cold wet i'm gonna reel this other rod get inside i think i got another shark on here you know i mean for being a little guy he's still pretty respectable there we go that looks like another sandbar shark there you go that was a small one but i mean still he was a good five feet long.
He is respectable big thanks to the support crew thanks joe thanks becca well good morning it's 6 a.m and the weather forecast says it's going to be about 45 degrees and up to 25 mile per hour winds so i thought it'd be a good idea to get my wife up early drag her out in the cold and take her fishing.
Yay to keep our marriage alive i uh got these adhesive hand warmers here and i'm gonna cover my wife all over in hand warmers we're in north carolina and it's breakfast time so i made biscuits and gravy.
let's get some gravy all right guys it is a brisk november morning and i'm here with nick with chasing tails and he is going to take us out fishing for we're going to go speckled trout oh i've never caught a speckled trout.
All right becca you ready for the coldest part of the whole trip it's gotta get nippy it feels kind of quite warm all of a sudden doesn't it much better you're warm okay oh you're okay good so we've got a live shrimp here.
Yep tide's coming in right here so we're just gonna throw it out there and just let it get on the bottom and just hold it just waiting for the fish to roll in with the tide oh there we go i feel warmer already actually it looks kind of like a catfish it is a catfish or not i'm a catfish.
Machine i can't turn it off look at that i swear this looks like a white catfish the white catfish are native to the brackish water tributaries on the east coast they have heads kind of like a bull head and the anal fin is shorter and has fewer rays than a channel catfish but i'd have to sit down and.
Actually count the rays to know for sure i'm gonna just call it a white catfish because it's too early in the morning to be counting spines on a fish's butt oh look at that beautiful trout babe is that right that's a good size yeah it's just a good solid keeper flies fish about 16 inch fish.
You see they're two things yellow house he's got he's got figs there we go fish now look at that yeah there you go my first speckled trout nice lot red nice red drum awesome fish these things can get crazy big but this.

Heading to a fishing pier and as you can see tom is really leaning into the pirate theme here at the outer banks are if you're new to fishing saltwater you might want to check out these fishing piers we're here at the bogue inlet fishing pier and uh we're gonna see if.
We can't catch something yeah that'd be great nice thing about learning how to fish on a fishing pier is they've got a tackle shop right at the end of the pier so you can get everything you need and you got lots of people around so you can see what other people are doing what's biting and you can learn really quick.
One thing you learn really quick about fishing piers is how far out you go affects what kind of fish you catch so you can catch certain types of fish right in the surf in the swells some you catch over the sand bars some you catch among the pilings others want deep open water as you walk down the pier you'll notice that people are fishing for.
Different types of things and reeling in different types of fish there we go tom oh that's actually it's toasty here yeah you got a little hot chocolate got a spot out of the wind this might be okay little spot kingfish rig okay.
Put it over the edge and you just drop it down straight down that right there is a pin fish there we go that's a pinfish a really popular bait fish that's about as big as they get they love to steal bait you're free there he goes he fights it.
