  1. Hello, I like your YouTube channel very much, but I think that Hispanics also look at them and do not understand the language. It may be possible to put subtitles in Spanish. Thanks for your content, it's very good.

  2. Why do y'all use moderate fast over moderate action rods for treble hook baits? Do moderate work as well?

  3. @TacticalBassin how you y'all feel about gamigatzu treble hooks, and how do y'all feel about having a red front treble hook?

  4. What treble you like more? These Owner STX or the Gama Aaron Martens that you mention in another vid?

  5. When do the Alamo and Saguaro videos drop? And PLEASE tell me you hit Canyon as well… And where TF was the invite/call?!?!

  6. Complete spreadsheet for all treble hook sizes on popular lures.. vision 110, 1/2 red-eye shad, 5XD etc?

  7. As always, GREAT info. Thanks for everything you guys do to help us(the less experienced) out with the tips and videos. Thanks again.

  8. I never buy those 4.0 strike Kings. So many people throw them here that you find them floating on the bank or when the waters down, wedged in rocks or hung on stumps.

  9. What kind of trailers do you guys use on your spinnerbaits? I can't find anything that works well. Thanks!

  10. Hey Matt I'm fishing my first big tournament on the Arkansas River do you have any tips or advice you can give me I'm fishing as a co Angler.

  11. Top tips again, Matt! I like those River2Sea spinnerbaits. Just wondering….Do you ever use a rattle on your spinnerbaits? Seems like it might give the fish a little something extra to target especially in the murkier waters.

  12. Thanks for all your tips. Awesome videos. I finally remembered to go through your link for tackle warehouse.
