This Beach fishing trick will help you catch BIG FISH!

This is your custom rod, huh? [Bandit:] That’s the One-Arm Bandit Rod. That looks so light. [Erin:] I know!
[Bandit:] I’m going to demon– I’m going to demonstrate something. [Erin:] Demonstrate.
[Bandit:] You might want to get this on camera. Ha ha ha. [Bandit:] This is how a one-arm man fishes. [Erin:] Woah. [Brendon:] That looks like it works pretty well. [Bandit:] That just went 140 yards. You fishermen with two hands, you’re jealous. [Erin laughing] Awesome. Hey, everybody, we are at One-Arm Bandit’s it’s a Tackle Shop in North Carolina, and um, we’re going to learn how to tie a shock leader, a shock leader will prevent you from losing a really big fish, casting over and over again, really puts strain on your regular line, and a shock leader will take some of that pressure off, and keep your line strong. [Bandit:] Okay, are we ready? [Brendon:] Yeah.
[Bandit:] Here comes dad, okay. Now I’m going to need help with this because I only have one hand, so, this is what we gonn do. ‘Kay? I’m going to make a circle, ‘kay?
[Brendon:] Mhmm, a circle. [Bandit:] We’re going to run it through once, we’re going to run it through… twice, what does that do? It makes a figure 8. See it? [Brendon:] Ahh. So, give me some line on it. Let’s do it this way, this way, this way. ‘Kay. You step over here. Dad, come over here. [Dad:] Yes sir.
[Erin:] Get in there. [Bandit:] You hold the reel. [Brendon:] Put it in the first eye in the 8. [Bandit:] Put it in the second way, the second eye… You see how that line is laying flat? In the 8? That’s how you want it.
[Brendon:] Mhmm. ‘Kay, now let me–let go of the line. You hold that line. ‘Kay, you’re going to wrap this 12 times. [Brendon:] 6… 7… 8… 9… 10… 11… 12.
[Bandit:] Now, If you was trying–tying mono to mono, only wrap it eight times. You gonna bring it back through this first loop, [Dad:] I see, the first loop.
[Brendon:] Okay. [Bandit:] ‘Kay? Now. That, pull it a little bit together, [Brendon:] Tighten up that end a little bit.
[Bandit:] Not much, now, what you want to do is you want to lube it up. [Brendon:] Get it all wet. [Bandit:] and then you want to cinch it, so… (indistinguishable) Whatever. Cinch it. [Brendon:] Oh, nice. And look how pretty a knot that is. [Brendon:] That is nice.
[Bandit:] Now, hold that, finger nail clips… This is my grandpa right here. [Dad:] Oh! [Erin:] Hi, Grandpa.
[Bandit:] That’s Grandpa Pete.
[Brendon:] That’s not your brother? [Grandpa Pete:] I don’t fish. [Brendon:] You don’t fish?
[Bandit:] Okay. [Bandit:] Hold that. [Dad:] Hold that, Brendon. [Bandit:] Hold that. Now, since this is braid, it will come through your eyes very easily, you always want to leave about an inch because that allows for slippage. [Grandpa Pete:] Right.
[Brendon:] ‘Kay. Otherwise you’re going to lose the whole knot, it could slip. [Bandit:] Yes. After you get done, [Brendon:] Give it another pull? [Bandit:] Now, this is what we’re gonn do, go ahead. See, I don’t know how long of a rod you’ve got. [Brendon:] 10’6″. [Bandit:] Go ahead. Okay. [Grandpa Pete:] Want me to cut it off right there? [Bandit:] Now, since we don’t have the rod, go ahead and reel it up. Okay. Okay. Go ahead. Okay, hold that. Now, you think you can tie that knot? I think I can, with practice, I can do it, and I’m going to watch the video,
[Erin:] Over and over again.
[Bandit:] That is the easiest knot… [Brendon:] That was really pretty, It was really nice looking.
[Bandit:] It’s a slim beauty, Figure 8.
[Brendon:] It’s called a slim beauty… [Bandit:] But always remember that that line has to go straight through that figure 8. If it goes up and down, come back through the other way. [Brendon:] Okay, it needs to sit straight when that figure eight– You don’t want it to be crooked and tighten it like that. You want it to go straight through, okay. [Bandit:] And always remember to lube it up. On braid, wrap it 12 times, on monofilament, wrap it 6 to about 8 times. [Dad:] Alright!
[Brendon:] Okay.
[Erin:] Thank you so much. [Bandit:] So now you know how to tie a shock knot. [Brendon:] Thank you. One Arm Bandit taught me how to tie a shock leader, and this, this will prevent– this’ll– put strain on this line rather than our main line so that we won’t be losing any big fish. Is that correct?
[Bandit:] That’s right. [Brendon:] Okay, cool. If anybody’s in North Carolina, need some fishing insight, need some advice, come to One Arm Bandit, he’s full of knowledge, very helpful, and I appreciate , I appreciate the help.
[Bandit:] The name of the store is Right On 12. [Erin:] Right On 12. [Bandit:] Right on 12.
[Brendon:] The name of the store is called Right On 12. Yup, in Hatteras–we’re in Hatteras, right? Buxton. In Buxton, North Carolina. [Erin:] Right on 12. This is not frozen. This is–is was swimming yesterday. Yeah, we’re going to come back and use this for bait later. So I learned how to tie a shock leader. Next episode, we’re going to put it to action. Thank you guys for watching, I hope that this can help you, you know, we stopped into this bait shop and he was so helpful we wanted to share–we wanted to share with everybody uh, the information that we’re learning, if you want to learn more about surf fishing, beach fishing, salt water fishing, check out our Senko Skipper Store, we’ve got loads of information on there, we’ve got lots of stuff on there for you guys to try out and lots of stuff for you to learn, so check it out, its in the link in the description below, have a good one, guys.

  26. Basic_Fishing says:

    that is the same knot i use for my shockleader for surfcasting: really handy because it is fast and also the design is slim allowing the line to fly through the guides without trouble. i usually use 2 rod length of shockleader for my surfcasting.

  27. Larry Sowada says:

    Look on YouTube, check out salt strong they have a good demo on it.

  33. Larry Sowada says:

    Sorry Brandon I was wrong it's the FG knot not the FJ , I guess I was thinking of my old FJ cruiser. Larry

  35. mario condello says:

    Always remember to lube it up is just great life advice in general.

  36. Silver says:

    What type of line would you guys recommend for big fish?

  37. 87akingify says:

    Looks like a strong knot… But the FG knot is diffinitely better

  38. Jorge Moran says:

    Thanks for the video, but I would also recommend the FG knot and a shorter leader, no need for it being that long. I recommend the leader just as long as the fish you're targeting 3-4 ft leader is plenty enough, IME.

    Regardless great video.

I rarely leave comments on videos about how a channel is, but first impressions are everything, and you certainly did beyond amazing. Great channel!

  52. Daniel Canaan says:

    Should really explain about the shock leader not just taking the strain but rule of thumb 10lbs for every oz of lead so if casting 4oz you need 40lb shock leader.

    I was down there at Hatteras over break. He was a super nice guy!

  62. Bruce Goldthwaite says:

    That was awesome. What a cool guy, I bet he can tell some stories.

  63. Alexandre Hiroshi Muranaka says:

    Best way to join braid and the sock leader is the SF knot that don t strangle any of the lines keeping almost 100% of the lines's strength and also it makes the knot very thin so It Will not tangle at the line guides.

  64. SmokeSolo33 says:

    Shockleader is not used to avoid losing a big fish or to get ylur tackle back. Its primary and most importance use is safety.
    You need at least 10lb line for every ounce cast. So if casting 6oz, you need 60lb shockleader.

    Shock leader reduces the chance of the energy of the lead beimg accelarated and snapping the line during the power build up of the cast

  65. The Autistic Angler says:

    In England, for beachcasting we normally spool with say 18lb line. This means that the line can only cast a 1.8oz ish weight, so we have to add a shockleader so that we can use a heavier weight for longer casting. weight is determined by the rod. So if we want to cast a 5 oz lead we say x10 = 50lb shockleader, 6 oz= 60lb etc. The shockleader then takes the shock of casting with a heavy weight, but with a thinner mainline, distance casting isn't compromised.

  66. Frank Castle says:

    so, basically what we learned here is always lubricate the slim beauty

  67. Rizki Sulaiman says:

    now find someone who can tie FG knot

  68. Aquamania0011 says:

    Another great video!! Man i have to get back down to the OBX.

  69. moe moodley says:

    Honestly guys url awesome but can u cum down to south africa or teach sime rigs to fish in south africa

  70. wickedEP Racing says:

    cool knot..wish you showed a more close up shot to really see what it looks like. but when you have to use heavier leaders..this not would be kinda bulky…so FG is best option boss +Senko Skipper .

  71. Sean Reagin says:

    Where in North Carolina is the shop? Anyone got the address?

  72. JK Hysteria says:

    Not a fan of that knot. I used to get a lot of break offs with that knot and it was almost always the leader that broke at the knot.

  73. J.J. K. says:

    Is it ok not to use a shock leader if your using 30lb braid with 3 or 4 oz leads? When is a shock leader necessary?

  74. Gayla Wilmoth says:

    Never seen anything like it! Awesome!

  75. BavarianMotorHead says:

    How many yards of shock leader should I have spooled for surf fishing? I hear 2 rod lengths and 6x around the spool… Is that just 6 loops? So 6 lines of it across the spool or 6 whole time up and down the width of the spool; so yards?

  76. Adventures with Frodo says:

    If you have to leave a 1inch tag for slippage it is not a very good knot there are many better knots.
