    Last year scisports caught 100 SBB from shore and I've had it in the back of my mind since then to try it.
    I was out last weekend trying to get 50 spotties in one session and ended up going for the hundo!
    Thanks for the motivation scisports and the encouragement Coach Werfless!!

    Here's the vid!

    Tour de force, sir! Dayum! Way to stick with it!

    Maybe the most impressive thing is how you remembered what number you were on without using a clicker or anything :) . Thanks for the shout out BTW.... Hope to meet you one of these days

    Cool for you to break down your setup, etc in a subsequent vid. Looked like a UL Ned Rig setup but I may be wrong. I’m sure you were embracing the Zen of ‘being the spottie!’

    It would be fun to do a session with you. Yak or shore I'm open to it.
    The Zen of "Being the Spottie" and remembering the number. I was talking to myself the whole time. LoL. No Clicker so I would keep talking to the next spotty by its number. :emoji_relaxed:

    No need to wait for the next vid, I caught them all on the little ZMan 1/5 Ned Rig with the TRD and Hula Stick soft baits.

    DM me if you want to meet up and go catching. :emoji_wink:

    LoL! EYE NO! :emoji_relaxed:

    I'm happy with 5+ on a session. Fishing with a buddy to 60 is a great day.

    Thank you sir!

    Started at 8:30AM and hit 50 at 1:30PM
    Then stayed til 12:30AM to complete the 100.

    100 spotties...cake! I did it with only 17 people on my bass boat! Seriously..once you pattern the depth, structure, and lure color, they can add up pretty fast! Don't think I've hit 100 in one day though..congrats!

    My best is 163 for 2 of us in 5 hrs. That's with me casting and taking fish off hook for the other person.

    Just watched the entire video. Great work. There is a challenge on here from a few years back, maybe 2012, where there was a challenge issued to any angler who could catch 50 spotties in 4 hours. I'm sure you have seen the thread as it has been her for a long time. I know the offer is no longer on the table, but it would be cool to see if you could knock it out.

    Great video. Congrats on your catch. I got tired just watching it. Can't imagine 16 hours in a Kayak. I'd be camped at my Chiropractor's office for the next month. I'll pin it to the top to go with is 100 possible? Thanks for taking the time to shoot a video and then edit it.

    Thank you so much captwoody. Comments like this are worth the work. I'm super stoked something that I love to do could be of some help.
    On the flyrod!? That's a whole other beast and set up gear. I Think you can knock it out tho. How long did it take you to get to 36? That is so close!! WHEN will you be attempting this again? :)

    Thanks Fat_Lip, That's an awesome screen name by the way.

    rockzilla That's awesome! If you were taking fish off the hook for your fishing partner I assume they were new or young so you probably blew their mind and made a story they are going to remember for the rest of their life. Good stuff. Thanks for sharing that.

    SoCalEDC, Ah cool! 50 in 4 hours would be a good one to attempt. It keeps the time reasonable. Now is the time to try that. I'm going to try to do it.

    Thank You mick, Yeah the last few hours were tough to find a seating position that wasn't uncomfortable. lol
    Being able to stand for part of it help tho.
    Thank you for the Pin. :emoji_metal:

    Sorry I missed this one. Thanks mcfish. LoL ....Cake! :) I agree. I got through 25 SBB the week before and that help a lot figuring out the pattern and lure. So on this attempt I had it pretty dialed in. Still forgot my bottle of scent so there is some room for improvement. ;)
    Thanks for the comment!

    SoCalEDC I was just doing the numbers and 50 SBB in 4 hours means a fish every 4:48 minutes. I was averaging 1 every 9:54 minutes. I spent an hour trying a new area that wasn't productive but even i take that out im mstill at 1 fish every 9 min. That challenge is going to be tough unless the bite is on fire.
    Goals Though. :)

    Yes, it's a very ambitious number in the 4 hour time frame. When the original challenge was issued there was 5 anglers who were given a shot. Here is the original thread, it's an interesting read: 100 SBB from the bay. Possible?
