Talking to you guys, answering all these questionsthat you’ve been submitting. Hank this week’s question, it comes from KenOlive, from Kennewick Washington. He wants to know what advice you can giveto a beginner, wanting to catch deep bass?In other words, he wants to know like whatkind of offshore fishing tips do you havefor a beginner?Hank: I’ll tell you. . . Glenn, we’ve been sittinghere answering questions. And you guys have asked some great questions. And Ken this is a great question. And it’s a question that a lot of people aretoo proud to ask. There’s so many people that are intimidatedby deep water structure, and they would neverask, “What do I do to get offshore to catchsome fish?I’m comfortable fishing the shoreline, butI go out there and I’m not comfortable. “Practice and confidence is built by havingsome success. For the most part, we did a show this morning. And we were successful fishing a road bed. It was a shallow area in open water. And a lot of times most of the structure that’sproduced for me over the years, have beenshallow areas in open water. So that’s what you’re depending on your electronicsfor. And once you’ve start building that confidence,one you get out there in that open water andyou say, “Oh. Man it’s only eight foot deep. Oh. Look how that drops off. Oh. Look at that contour. Boom. Oh man, there’s a fish. Oh. There’s another fish. “Once you do that, just a few times and you’rehooked. I was the worst trying to build confidenceon deep water structure fishing. But man I got out there and I started catchingfish. Then I was dying to understand more aboutit. One of my heroes in the whole fishing world,was a guy named Blake Honeycutt, and he wasan undergraduate of Buck Perry. Buck Perry would find these underwater islandsbefore we even had any kind of electronicequipment. And he used a trolling spoon, and he wouldfind these highest places, and he had a milkjug with a mason cord and a brick. And he would go out there and mark them. And the he would fish out in the middle ofthe lake. And you’d think, “What’s he doing way outthere in the middle of the lake?The bass are up here under the brush pile. “Well, there’s brush piles out there. And it was just amazing how Blake taught methrough articles and. . . information that hepassed on through seminars on how, when theHumminbird came around, how he used that Humminbirdto read the underwater structure. And that’s what built confidence for me. So BassResource is a great place to get information. Get more information on that deep water fishing. Apply it, and I’m telling you, once you’resuccessful, you’ll love it out there. It’s a big difference than beating the banks. Glenn: Ken, I really do hope that helps you. Go out there and knock them dead. You’re gonna catch them, and you’re gonnahave a great time doing it with those tips.
