Hogfish in Tampa Bay

Posted on 17 April 2014

We have never seen a hogfish up close, but dang are they a neat fish. That mouth structure is a wonder of evolution. The look like the punk rockers of the fish world.

Lure that looks like a fish on a bed

Posted on 15 April 2014

The advertising for this lure did not say it imitated a fish defending a bed, but that is just what we think the Redfin Jig looks just like. It is kind of memorizing to watch. We just want to see a fish go after it.

Gentle Angler Loves His Catfish

Posted on 10 April 2014

This angler is perhaps the most thoughtful, caring person we have seen fishing. Not only does he jump in the water to minimize the stress of handling a big red tail catfish in Thailand, but he carefully applies disinfectant to its war wounds and gives it a little smooch before releasing. This guy must have a million good fish karma points.

Fast Food Fish: Wendys v Burger King

Posted on 09 April 2014

Fast food fish is a sad thing compared to the freshwater goodness we routinely have access too. The square fish processed chunks are little more than x protein coated in deep fried batter.

But like low-budget movies or trashy tabloids, guilty pleasures are part of the human experience and we certainly enjoyed this fast food nerd’s passion for taste testing fish. We think we will take his advice and never try a Wendy’s fish sandwich. Keep up the good work Daym.

Enormous Paddlefish from N. Dakota

Posted on 08 April 2014

This is a big paddlefish, measuring about 70 inches but really beefy too.  The angler snagged it in the tail, but the fish is so big it seemed to cause little damage. These fish are plankton eaters, so snagging is the only option.  There are fisheries for these amazing fish in the Midwest and at times they are harvested for caviar.  Truly spectacular animals and we are glad he let this one go.

Ice Fishing in April – Unreal

Posted on 04 April 2014

In most places in New Hampshire safe ice for fishing in April is rare. But we found 2 feet of ice on Pequawket Pond in Conway and some friendly perch. We will miss the hardwater fishing, but we are looking forward to casting again.

Mud Puppy While Ice Fishing

Posted on 29 March 2014

Ice fishing can be full of surprises. After he catches a bunch of rock bass, this angler pulls up a mud puppy. All catch and release though. No mud puppy chowdah today.

Topwater Nile Perch – Awesome!

Posted on 28 March 2014

We are not sure where this video was shot, but we do understand that topwater fishing is awesome! This fisherwoman is having a great time catching what we think are nile perch on a topwater frog imitation. Nile perch can get huge, over 6 feet long, so these are puppies. But oh what fun is this!
