I grew up using pool cue like rods, dacron line and dull hooks. I was told to cross thier eyes and pull them out of the water so hard that they landed in the water on the other side of the boat. This supposedly stunned them and made them easy to lip. Works for me!
Ozark angler and proud of it!

I just tested it on my phone, using Tapatalk, the full version of the site and the mobile version of the site. Worked on all 3 of them for me.

Curt
If I go to the top right hand corner of Scott's vid it says youtube, I hit that and it takes me to youtube where I have to skip an ad then it starts showing the video. It's no big deal just an extra couple of steps. (y)

@ranger361v I just tested it with Chrome and it worked fine for me.

If you tap the YouTube button it will take you to YouTube on any of the videos.
