Spent 4.14.15 and 4.15.15 on Fork with Cody Malone. This is my third year of going out with Cody, and as usual, I was blown away by his bed fishing talent. I'm not going to post what we were using or where we were on Fork (that's up to Cody) but I can tell you it was nothing special. The key to what we were doing - Cody's eyes. His ability and talent to see exactly what the fish were doing is nothing short of a magic show. Caught 16 fish over both days, two biggest being 9+ and 8+. But the best part of the trip were the lessons he taught to Captain Chunk and I about sight fishing and what to look for. At one point I just sat back and told Cody to catch the fish because I wanted to learn, and it was a pleasure watching the master at work. We could have caught an additional 10-15 fish but we bypassed a lot of smaller fish looking for larger donkeys.

At one point on Wednesday, we saw a nice fish cruising and we sat and tried to figure out where she was bedding. Cody found her in 4-5' of stained water, in a bed off the shore. Captain Chunk and I couldn't see the bed or the fish, but Cody told me where to pitch and how to work the bait. Then all I hear is "set the hook" and she's on. I never felt her pick up the bait, never saw her, nada. But Cody did. It was like watching David Copperfield do tricks. If I wasn't in the front of the boat for it, I wouldn't have believed it.

I've been bass fishing since I was 3 and have learned from some of the best including my dad and Dragmaster, but Cody's talent for bed fishing is above anything I've ever seen.

If you want to learn how to sight fish from the best, call Cody and spend a day on the water with him. It's worth the price of admission to just watch him work.

Here are some videos from the trip including the 9+ caught by Captain Chunk.

Wonder why this was moved from the Bass section. So many posts still there that should not be.

I'm not sure why either, maybe because the videos were linked to it? Just trying to give some credit to a great guide.

I just put up a video of a fish I caught with Richie White. I put it here because this one got moved.

Awesome videos. Wish we could have seen how big they were before you went to the next video.
