The 35 Year Barracuda Fishing Record

Fishing lifestyle in los Cayitos, Honduras Los Cayitos de Utila (Honduras).  – Elizabeth Diamond, an elderly woman, a fighter, with English ancestry, and the owner of the only fishery in Los Cayitos de Utila, Honduras.  Early every morning she supplies gas and ice to the fishermen, and air diving tanks in case they fish lobsters. After that, the fishermen go to their favorite and partially assigned...

How warming seas are forcing fish to seek new waters

Scottish fishermen have uncovered an intriguing way to supplement their income: they have added squid to the menu of marine creatures they regularly pull from the sea. A species normally associated with the warmth of the Mediterranean, rather than the freezing north, may seem an odd addition to their usual catches of cod and haddock. Nevertheless, squid has become a nice little earner for fishing boats...

WA recreational fishing group opposes commercial sector bid for reduced size limits

Western Australia’s peak recreational fishing group has lodged its opposition to scrapping size limits for commercial fishers on some species, such as red emperor. The proposal to abolish fish size limits for a range of species was put forward by the Department of Fisheries in November, and public submissions closed last week. Under current sustainability management rules, commercial and recreational...

How will the fishing be this spring? Could be better, could be worse

The projections for spring chinook on the Columbia River aren’t the best on record and they’re not the worst. Winter has officially arrived, but many salmon anglers are setting their sights on spring. State, federal and tribal fishery managers met earlier this month and announced a forecast of 160,400 upriver adult spring chinook destined for the Columbia River, which historically reflects a run...

We’ll be out of seafood by 2048 at current pace of fishing

Unless we make some changes, there will no more fish left to eat by 2048. For every cute hamster and mouse café story I write, there’s a darker one waiting in the wings – I suppose there’s a reason I’ve been called “the guru of gruesome.” But seriously, there’s a lot in this world that needs attention beyond funny cat videos! So, for this edition of “The Daily Gruesome,” I bring...

Steelhead river fishing and pike highlight Michigan report

Despite the recent surge of colder temperatures, the prospects to go ice fishing are still a ways off in most parts of Michigan. In the meantime, pike and panfish appear to be two of the top targets for anglers on the open water. Pike can be caught while fishing many lakes or rivers in Michigan. According to the Department of Natural Resources, Muskegon, Portage, Manistee, Michigamme and Houghton lakes...

‘Ghost Fishing’ Kills Long After the Gear Is Lost

Abandoned fishing equipment traps whales, sharks, sea turtles and other marine wildlife. Left-behind fishing gear that continues to catch — sometimes called ghost fishing — entraps sea life from the world’s largest animal, the blue whale, to the critically endangered small tooth sawfish, according to a new study. “Entanglement is the likely cause of death for many marine organisms,...

Feeding blues and crabs at the fishing pier

This run of bad weather has done nothing to improve the fishing in our area. Over the past two weeks, most fishing trips on open water have been cancelled and the more sheltered waters just aren’t producing much. Last Monday, Larry Weldin and I planned to leave his dock on Long Neck at 0700 and head to the ocean in search of flounder, croaker, blues or anything else that might take a bait. I was...
