Most anglers are trying to catch the biggest fish they can, but have you heard of micro-fishing?
Just like it sounds, it’s trying to catch small fish in small water sources. Take a look.
Nick Calcara of Edwardsville, Ill., has a YouTube channel dedicated to this different side of the sport.
He posted his first video on YouTube two years ago this May. Since then, his micro-fishing videos have been viewed more than 14.5 million times.
His setup usually includes tiny hooks, bobbers and chopped-up hot dogs.
Calcara says his micro-fishing comes from his youth. As a kid, he says he loved to catch small fish and reptiles in a little net he had.
He says he just thinks it’s cool that tiny fish can live in tiny amounts of water.
Okay, Calcara isn’t just about micro-fishing. He also posts videos of himself catching some whoppers, like a blacktip shark in Florida.
But he gets just as excited catching a fingerling bass as he does catching a big hog.
