I really tried guys! The temps are starting to cool down dramatically over night and these lakes will be iced in no time. I know this wasn’t the most exciting video ever but I hope you still learned a few things about cold water fishing and it’s potential. Feel free to shoot me a question in the comment section below. Have a great New Years and stay fishing!

  1. I know you posted this almost a year ago but it came up in my what to watch and I clicked on it Bc I live in upstate NY and the winters are terrible up here but I was just wondering if you've ever been fishing in upstate NY

  2. So I really want to get that scorpion 1000 tx and I was wondering if you think it would be wise to buy a used one from ebay. (I know ebay hasn't been really good to you recently) and if you like the reel. Any advice would be appreciated.
