Todd Grubb:
What's going on everybody. Welcome to the MONSTERBASS channel. Today we're doing some pond hop and we're at a brand new spot here in Rhode Island that we have never been to. It is the Roger Williams Zoo Park. This place is covered with water. It's super cool. It's so different. And just driving in here, it just transports you into a different place. It does not feel like we're in Providence anymore. But [Thea 00:00:21] and I got a bunch of stuff with us today. Everything that we have, pretty much everything we have came in some sort of MONSTERBASS bag or box this month. So we're going to use all that kind of stuff. We got the multi-species stuff and we got a bunch of bass lures. Looks like there's there should be bass and all sorts of other fun stuff in every one of these ponds.

Todd Grubb:
All right. Guys, to start, I got this Mad Max Popper. This thing looks super freaking cool. I've yet to throw it. I don't even know what it looks like in the water. Hopefully we can catch a fish on it. Thea, we paired her up with one of those tiny little tubes that we got. They're so cool. And we have a Bobber this time, so we're going to check this thing out.

Todd Grubb:
All right guys, if you have not subscribed to the MONSTERBASS channel already, please do me a favor and hit the subscribe button here. Also, you can check out my channel, it's linked down below. Going over there, hit the subscribe button and let me know what you think.

Todd Grubb:
This place is pretty cool. I don't even know what to think right now. I don't even know if we're supposed to fish this but we're going to. I don't even know if there's fish in here. It looks really shallow, this crazy little thing. Oh God. I have to watch out. There. Let's see how shallow it is. Yeah, I don't know about this spot.

Todd Grubb:
I don't see like any lily pads or any of that kind of stuff for frog fishing. Do you see this? This is putting out a bunch of oxygen right here.

Todd Grubb:
Again, always make sure you look down here for knots and stuff. When you're going to toss this thing out, kind of let it do its thing. Give it like little nudges here and there.

Thea:
Okay.

Todd Grubb:
And you'll be able to tell when a fish has it, that'll either go underwater or be getting like pulled in a different direction that it's been going. You know what I mean? Or you'll see like tap, tap.

Todd Grubb:
Oh, do you see that?

Thea:
Yeah, I did.

Todd Grubb:
Maybe do that. Maybe let this thing... Oh, holy shit.

Thea:
That big?

Todd Grubb:
I don't know. Something just hit it hard twice. Did you see that?

Thea:
Yeah, I did.

Todd Grubb:
Damn, Gina. I wasn't expecting that.

Todd Grubb:
Holy sweet baby Jesus.

Thea:
I think it's going right where you are. You know what I mean?

Todd Grubb:
This might be where they come in and out. Yeah.

Passer-by:
Hi.

Thea:
Hi.

Todd Grubb:
That's hilarious. Here.

Todd Grubb:
That noise is what you want. If you can make that noise a lot, that blip.

Thea:
What?

Todd Grubb:
Bass. Awesome.

Thea:
That was mine. You took my lure. He's so cute.

Todd Grubb:
That is a tiny, tiny, tiny bass. Right, little buddy.

Thea:
Right there, lily pads down there.

Todd Grubb:
It's not lily pads, it's like mil foil. Sweet.

Thea:
Cute.

Todd Grubb:
All right little bud, thanks for being the first fish of the day. It's fantastic.

Todd Grubb:
I figured there'd be something living in that bush. Just because... Oh God. Oh, did you see that?

Thea:
Yeah.

Todd Grubb:
Again. Yeah.

Todd Grubb:
Nice! Crappie! Sick.

Todd Grubb:
Is it a good one? Yeah. Awesome.

Thea:
Okay. There's a ton of [inaudible 00:05:51]

Todd Grubb:
Sweet.

Thea:
Whatever.

Todd Grubb:
Little gill?

Thea:
Little gill.

Todd Grubb:
Later, buddy.

Thea:
Should we switch the bait to the [inaudible 00:05:58]?

Todd Grubb:
I don't know. Maybe. Oh boy. Oh no, that's not fish. That's all leaves. Thought those were all fish for a second.

Thea:
[inaudible 00:06:12]

Todd Grubb:
Could be a fish in there. Oh.

Thea:
Oh! Oh, he's so cute.

Todd Grubb:
Nice. Got him.

Todd Grubb:
All right, little buddy. See ya. Awesome.

Todd Grubb:
I mean there's all these little fish in here, there's got to be a big one somewhere too.

Todd Grubb:
I think you got caught on the plant for a second.

Thea:
Oh right.

Todd Grubb:
Yo. That's a fish, go.

Thea:
I got it.

Todd Grubb:
You got him.

Thea:
I got it. I got a fish.

Todd Grubb:
Get him, get him, get him. Get him up.

Thea:
Oh.

Todd Grubb:
Get him up. Oh my God, it's a crappie.

Thea:
It's my first crappie.

Todd Grubb:
Ever?

Thea:
Yeah.

Todd Grubb:
Nice, babe. Go ahead. Later, bud. Thea's first fish of the day.

Thea:
And first crappie.

Todd Grubb:
And first crappie ever. Boom.

Todd Grubb:
Oh! I had something.

Thea:
Did you?

Todd Grubb:
Yeah. I don't know what the hell it was.

Todd Grubb:
I want to know what that was in here. It looked like a bait fish of some sort.

Thea:
What's that mean?

Todd Grubb:
Like a shiner or not like a... Oh.

Thea:
Oh. What is it?

Todd Grubb:
That's what I was talking about.

Thea:
He's so cute. Is that number four?

Todd Grubb:
That is...

Thea:
He's purple.

Todd Grubb:
White perch, I believe.

Thea:
I heard that dude saying there are perch in here.

Todd Grubb:
Like he was guessing what there could be in here.

Todd Grubb:
Comment down below if you know what kind of fish this is. I believe it's a white perch. Cool?

Thea:
Yeah.

Todd Grubb:
Yeah. Awesome. See you later, buddy. That's what hit the first time.

Thea:
See you. Every...

Todd Grubb:
I noticed that white belly.

Thea:
Oh.

Todd Grubb:
Let's see if we can get another one doing the exact same thing. Just letting it go out, wait, watch out. Okay, you're good. It's like right out in the mix and just hold it kind of, I was twitching it like this.

Todd Grubb:
Go. Not... You don't have to go hard, babe. Go. Oh. Now get him. Oh my God it's a bass.

Thea:
I got a giant fish.

Todd Grubb:
Oh my goodness, babe. Nice. That is not what I was expecting.

Thea:
I thought it was going to be the cute one.

Todd Grubb:
It's the best fish of the day, babe. Awesome.

Thea:
All right.

Todd Grubb:
Pretty cool, huh?

Passer-by (Dad):
Yeah.

Todd Grubb:
You want to touch him?

Passer-by (Dad):
You want to touch it?

Passer-by (Kid):
Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Passer-by (Dad):
Go on.

Thea:
You do it.

Todd Grubb:
Here. You can pet his tail. Pretty cool, huh?

Thea:
It's a large mouth bass.

Passer-by (Kid):
Look. It went to the water.

Todd Grubb:
Yeah. He goes right back in there.

Passer-by (Mom):
Thank you.

Thea:
Yeah.

Todd Grubb:
Later, buddy.

Passer-by (Mom):
Bye!

Passer-by (Kid):
Bye!

Thea:
Bye! Have a good day.

Todd Grubb:
No way. I just had a fish, babe.

Thea:
Really?

Todd Grubb:
Yeah. I didn't set the hook because I'm an idiot.

Thea:
Is it big?

Todd Grubb:
I don't know.

Todd Grubb:
I think it was probably... It was a bass. It's all that's going to hit that. It felt like moving.

Thea:
Oh my God. That's sick, babe. Is that a bass again?

Todd Grubb:
Yep. On the Gambler lures that came in MONSTERBASS box. Sweet, guys.

Todd Grubb:
Jesus.

Thea:
It's not as big as mine.

Todd Grubb:
No, but a bass in here. The only reason why I tossed this in there is because the one you caught. I was like, oh, maybe there's another one. All the small fish are gone.

Thea:
And now the big boys are out.

Todd Grubb:
And I think it's because all those bait fisher here. That there's...

Thea:
They're feeding on them?

Todd Grubb:
There's some bass just chilling in here waiting for him.

Thea:
Perfect cast?

Todd Grubb:
Yeah. I got hit on the first one too. Oh.

Thea:
[inaudible 00:10:46] Are you...

Todd Grubb:
Oh. Oh. Oh.

Thea:
Oh my God.

Todd Grubb:
Oh, man. He freaking destroyed it. He ripped the whole tail off.

Thea:
Oh my God.

Todd Grubb:
I know. I'm really hungry too. All right. I'll walk you back to the car and then...

Thea:
[inaudible 00:11:08] ... get something. I can...

Thea:
Are you serious right now? That's a huge fish. Oh my God. How do I help you?

Todd Grubb:
I got it.

Thea:
Okay.

Thea:
Oh my goodness. Like, wow.

Todd Grubb:
Oh, it's a good one too.

Thea:
[inaudible 00:11:44]

Todd Grubb:
Boom, baby.

Thea:
Oh my God.

Passers-by:
That thing is huge!

Thea:
Seriously! That fish is big.

Todd Grubb:
Awesome.

Passers-by:
Wow!

Passers-by:
Good catch!

Thea:
Unreal.

Todd Grubb:
Sick.

Passers-by:
Wow!

Todd Grubb:
Right at the seal.

Passers-by:
Congratulations!

Thea:
That's your lucky spot.

Thea:
All right. I got it.

Passers-by:
Nice fish.

Todd Grubb:
Thanks.

Thea:
Isn't great?

Passers-by:
Wow!

Thea:
I can't believe you just caught that. First cast?

Todd Grubb:
At the backside. I saw the shadow right there. I went for the shadow.

Thea:
Oh did you?

Todd Grubb:
Yeah. When it's like structure shadow, there might be a bass there. Wasn't expecting the biggest bass of the day in the tiniest pond of the day. But that's awesome.

Thea:
Yeah.

Todd Grubb:
Oh, it smells so good.

Thea:
It doesn't smell good.

Todd Grubb:
Yeah. Smell it.

Thea:
Don't say that. I know what it smells like. It doesn't smell good.

Todd Grubb:
Guys, that's a freaking sweet fish. Stoked about that.

Thea:
I'll take like a video there. Story.

Todd Grubb:
All right. Say goodbye.

Thea:
All right.

Todd Grubb:
You came right from behind the seal. All right little bud. Later. Peace.

Todd Grubb:
All right ladies and gentlemen, we've caught a ton of fish at this point. We're going to take a quick lunch break and then we're going to go see if we can get a few more fish under our belt before we end the day. This has been great. Super stoked we found a lure that's working for the bass. Obviously we just got a really nice one. And having fun with the small fish as well. And obviously Thea got one of the bigger bass of the day on a small lure. Pretty, pretty stoked. He can...

Thea:
And now the song is in my head all day.

Thea:
What did you get babe?

Todd Grubb:
Bluegill. Soon as I switched over to the cricket. We did it again.

Thea:
Is that the first Bluegill of the day?

Todd Grubb:
The second.

Thea:
Oh right.

Todd Grubb:
Bye, bud.

Todd Grubb:
I felt with the way the water's kind of dirty, we switch over to something that's really dark. The cricket's black. You might be able to see it better. That was my first cast with it, yeah. Absolutely annihilated it.

Todd Grubb:
Nice bass.

Todd Grubb:
No!

Todd Grubb:
I knew as soon as I touched the line, he was going to break off. I tried to boat flip him. Now he's got a cricket in his face. Damn.

Todd Grubb:
I wasn't filming because I was retying.

Thea:
That's okay.

Todd Grubb:
Thea just caught this bass. And this is on a weighted wacky rig. This little doo hickeys we got from the MONSTERBASS box. I believe these are Z-bait co. Little things. I can't even remember what the hell they're called. Awesome. You want a photo?

Thea:
Yeah. And I'll release him.

Todd Grubb:
Yeah. Go ahead.

Todd Grubb:
Nice. [Little Gilly 00:17:01]. Thanks, bud. Damn, these crickets are insane.

Todd Grubb:
It's working it sometimes. I think. Oh. Got him.

Thea:
What?

Todd Grubb:
Bluegill. All right. It's working.

Todd Grubb:
All right. We just tied on this inline spinner after breaking off. Ooh. On the float and fly. So we're going to give this a try for a little bit and see if Thea can catch a bluegill or a couple other fish. Here. This one, you just got to cast it out, reel it in and don't get it stuck in stuff.

Thea:
I think he nibbled, the first bass.

Todd Grubb:
You got nibbles on it?

Thea:
Yeah.

Todd Grubb:
Did you get him? Yeah, you got him.

Thea:
Oh yeah. Ugh.

Todd Grubb:
He come off?

Thea:
Yeah. It was a bass.

Todd Grubb:
Nah-uh.

Thea:
Yeah.

Thea:
Nice.

Todd Grubb:
Had to come back to this spot to get one more fish. It definitely worked. Another little ding dang doo. All right. Later, bud.

Thea:
That was mind...

Thea:
Got it.

Todd Grubb:
Nice. Get him! Get it over. You reeled it up way too much. Just let him go.

Thea:
Okay.

Todd Grubb:
Nice job.

Thea:
He got off this thing.

Todd Grubb:
Nice job, babe. Oh. I'm going to rinse him off real quick. He's a little dirty. Nice job. All right, Bubba.

Thea:
Bye.

Todd Grubb:
Fantastic.

Todd Grubb:
All right ladies and gentlemen, that concludes the day out on the water. We had a blast out there. Just a couple things I wanted to talk to you about after editing this entire video here, the winning lure, now I didn't catch the most fish. Obviously the micro lures did that we got in our multi-species boxes, her bags or whatever. But this thing, the Gambler lures, 4-inch Bacon Rind. This was the ticket. This thing, the action on this thing is unbelievable under the water. This bait has a killer sent to it. It is stinky as can be. And it just worked wonders. In a very highly pressured couple bodies of water, this was the ticket. This was the way to get it done. And personally, one of my favorite baits to use in the late summer and early fall is a creature bait with a bullet weight. And you guys can get those bullet weights on the MONSTERBASS website for a very good price. You guys might want to check that out. But this was it.

Todd Grubb:
We also scored a bass on literally every lure we tossed that day except for the Mad Max Popper. It was not a topwater type of spot and it was definitely not a topwater type of day so we basically put that thing away really early and focused on baits that were working. So the floating fly with the little tube and the little cricket worked beautifully along with this Bacon Rind. And then I tossed on a little tiny wacky rig, weighted wacky rig, for Thea and she caught a bass with that as well. We had a fun day. We had a fun day out in the water.
