SOLO Catch and Cook SALMON COLLARS *Cinnamon, Garlic, Vinegar* MOUTH WATERING!
and I gotta say it feels good to be back out here on my own on the butter boat by myself going for
salmontoday rigging up these anchovies with these super flex Bader's we got about six of them all rigged up here ready to go so when I get a fish or if I get a small fish or if I lose a bait and I need to change out I can swap swap them out really easily super easy to tie these things so you don't have to buy them let me show you how to do it so you got your bait here this is about a five-inch anchovy and I want the hook to be coming out at the back right there on the tail pointed down this is a barbed hook I have to pinch the barbed down but that's about where I want it so take some wire this is a quarter pound wire point 0 3 2 diameter safety wire get about what I think I need squeeze down the end there just so it forms a nice little little point because that's going to go through the bait now you don't really need this anchovy to give you an idea but just to show you this little point right there on the wire it's going to go out of the nose of the anchovy the hook is gonna be right about there so I want about that much wire so you'll take your wire here make sure you got a nice little little point there at the end you put it through the front of the eye these little holes right there boom and you feed it down maybe about an inch maybe a little more than an inch inch and a quarter you can get it started with your fingers just start bending it...
around the shank of the hook as close to the eye as you can then grab with the flat pliers grab the wire and just start twisting the hook around and as you do this it'll pull tight this is what's going to keep the wire attached to the hook when you get to fish so just hold it pretty tight squeeze down and just do a bunch of twists until you can't twist anymore all right like that I take your needlenose pliers and just bend those tips down so it's nice and even simple super simple there's your flex banner pretty much you got that point there we can even squeeze that down just a little bit more so the next thing you're gonna need is a little extra hole right here that's where you're going to put the nail so you just open that wire up just a little bit pinch it with you need a needle nose pliers about quarter inch below the top and that's it just start twisting and it'll form two loops for you twist it twist to twist it don't hold it too tight because you need that one to us to happen or just like that now you can let it come down just a tad and then just twist it twist it twist it about 12 13 times and there you go that's your your beta right there flex beta super simple easy as that now you would take your bait and you want it to come out right about there find that spot poke a hole in the scales try not to play with the debate too much you know you want to keep it looking fresh and you'll feel that wire run down the spine of...
the fish all the way up up to the head and it should come right out of the
mouthand see that right there that's where you're going to attach a little clip to and on the bottom where the extra hole is that's where you're going to put a nail this is a 3/4 inch nail size 18 stainless steel so you do like that with the rubber band pull that tight alright push the nail through all the way to the head once you get to the head pull the rubber band all the way around the nail on top back around the nail on the bottom and boom everything is tight the gills won't open up give it a little bend like this boom baby now you're fishing so once I get out to the fishing spot I can just throw them on and this is the leader here show you really quick might as well show you before I get out there down a 4-foot leader bead swivel on top and this is going to a ball bearing swivel right there and about 8 inches going to a little snap and that snap is going to snap on to those wire super flex Bader's whatever you call them 30 pound test line about a 4-foot liter do these guys have the exact same boat as me what the hell you know they wander from watching my videos that's crazy look at that friggin Whaley right there howay he leave 370 exactly the same as me what the hell are the chances of that hey I saw that boat I was like man that looks kind of familiar did you have it shipped like all the way from Florida same thing Danice that's crazy that's the only...

them right there same thing as last time birds diving birds diving let's stick to the same game plan get over here first right here right here well there's tons of bait everywhere fun there's got to be a
salmonin this thing come on Sammy baby come on come on come on bye baby Cielo shrieking another school of them over there well I guess things have slowed down enough so I can just clean this
salmonnow measured it it's a good 25 inch
salmonlooking really chunky and really funny actually like look at the size of its
mouthcompared to its head that's a weird-looking
salmonthis right here it's pretty cool little little knife really sharp short blade but it's got the spoon in the back -
salmonspoon because there's that bloodline in
salmonyou scrape it out see what he's got in the stomach not much food in her though well actually yes there is there's a partially digested one exact same size is what I was using maybe a little bit smaller so inside
salmondamn look at that bright orange meat so nice there's a thick thick thick bloodline makes it really handy to have something on the knife - I'll just come right out and if you're doing this right over the bow make sure you have a good grip on the
salmonoh I know y'all can probably tell how much I want to
salmonbut sometimes it just doesn't go your way I had my chance that ones cleaned up I think I'm gonna go go in there's some more birds diving...
over there we're gonna head over there if I don't get anything then that's just my luck today alright well we found a nice little spot to do the
cookgot all the ingredients over here actually missing the apple cider
vinegarI think that's going to be a nice little touch to this but first thing we're gonna do is fillet this little bad girl up right there nice belly meat and I'm gonna leave a good chunk on these
collarsa good good amount of meat as always it helps with a really sharp knife last time I butchered the
salmon100% butcher did this time is going all right that's a nice chunk of meat right there all right let's get the other one off - yeah that's a nice piece of meat right there make sure your knife stays clean when you do this job all right so this right here man that's that's a thick piece of skin right there there's a lot of fat in there that would actually be really good I should eat that but anyway this is the piece that I'm going to smoke I'm gonna take this home and smoke it but for now we're going to chuck it up a little bit I'm going to do one piece here this will be a meal for later also this is what I'm gonna throw into the grill right now so there's no pin bones here I'm going to mix that with the
collarsand the belly portion and that should be freaking delicious shameless plug here fisherman's life shirts hoodies beanies and hats are on sale at fisherman's...
life net check it out so while before I marinate the fish I've got this grill here it's gonna light up these coals nice little better coals here instant light first thing we're gonna do I don't know about 6 ounces of avocado oil that's gonna be our marinade we're gonna put it in here a little bit of
garliclet's just eyeball it what we feel is right okay some salt for sure this will help help it absorb into the meat regular old black pepper this is a weird ingredient but I feel like it'll go well so
cinnamonI have no idea let's see how it turns out it's that around smells good and the last ingredient I feel like this is going to be pretty interesting apple cider
vinegarI think all that sour that bitter taste is going to burn right off it's gonna
cookright off and all that will be left with is a sweet apple flavor so pour a good amount in hopefully that's not too much
collarsand one more belly piece so there we go we're gonna marinate this just let this sit let this soak until the coals are nice and white nice and hot and we're going to throw it on the grill mmm it smells good see how this grills up one collar there well the good thing about
cooking like this is that this little belly piece is going to be done first and it is just about done I couldn't do this video without incorporating just a little bit of butter so I've got a little baster here and we're gonna base these pieces of
salmonin some butter...
and we're gonna let that butter crisp up also yeah but this is other belly piece oh my gosh look at that that's almost perfect right there is that done let me see is that done yes done I'm going to Alaska tomorrow so I really wanted to get this
salmontrip in and it was a success I still can't believe I lost that one big one that was crazy let's see with this weird concoction I thought of last night little piece of the filet right here it's good nothing too special on that one let me try that belly piece I think this is gonna be so good with the skin too it's almost like not even meat it's just like fat which I like damn that's good I do have a little sense of that apple cider
vinegara little bit of that
cinnamonalso know maybe modified a little bit this recipe could work all right let's get this collar off here before we for sure over ho ho ho it's like an angel wing right there after a long day of fishing I like that
cinnamonweird little ingredient but that
cinnamonhas the after flake aftertaste well I'm gonna finish this up and that's for sure this right there is the collar part of the collar at least oh all right people say this is the best the very best part of a
salmonI can see why they would say that a lot of fat mixed in with a lot some of that lean meat would you like a piece of
salmonI just I just
cooked some hub nuts that's what that's what I've been doing over here yeah what do you put on it I...
tried something weird I put apple cider
