Archer takes shark

July 26th 2014 21:09
Here's a neat story about a guy taking a shark with a bow.

I've embarrassed myself by bow fishing but know one guy who is actually pretty good at it and regularly uses his bow for carp.

Personally, I didn't even know something like this sport existed but, if you think about it, people fly fish for sharks so, why can't they use bows?





Remember to take the hooks outta yer pocket before ya sit down!

People in Australia or South Africa are probably shaking their head over this but, it's BIG news in the U.S.

How much food are we wasting?

Bycatch, unintentionally catching the wrong fish while targeting another species, presents some alarming numbers.

Although I'm always suspicious of Yahoo's reporting, here's an article they ran a few months ago.

Write off the missing diver

July 18th 2014 03:11
I must be getting jaded because I don't view Animal Planet, History Channel, Discovery, or Yahoo with the same respect I used to have for them. Yahoo was the first to go and then the others did one thing or another that made me shake my head and wonder, "Why?"

After GrindTV ran this story, you can pretty much add them to the list. Of course, they're closely associated with Yahoo so, you have to question their TRUE news gathering abilities.

Tips to keep minnows alive

July 14th 2014 00:16
When it comes to minnows, keeping them alive, even 24 hours, is, too often, a losing proposition.

On the other hand, there's no denying they're pretty expensive so, it's nothing to be ashamed of no matter how it turns out.

J Knot beats out Blood Knot

July 9th 2014 00:39
When it comes to tying line to line, I've been going with the Blood Knot longer that I care to admit. Although the Blood Knot is a little hard to tie, I've stuck with it because it looks pretty cool if you can tie it and it is a pretty good knot. However, that may have to change because on the Knot Wars segment of the season finale of North American Fisherman featured the J Knot knocking off the Blood Knot.

North American Fisherman is one of the better fishing programs on TV because you won't sit there half an hour watching guys fish. Although you'll see fishing action, you'll learn a little about tactics, equipment, conservation, and, thanks to the Knot Wars segment that has been going on the past few years, how to tie some good knots.

Great white shark
We're gonna need a bigger boat!

Saturday's report of a Great White attack off the California Coast really comes as no surprise although shark attacks, especially those of Great Whites, are rare.

Fish take over mall

July 3rd 2014 00:49
No doubt you know someone who has a koi pond. And who among us has walked along the waterfront and spied a school of catfish so large the fish are practically rubbing fins? And who hasn't been to the mall in the past few weeks? Now, imagine all three of those scenarios combined and you get an idea of what happened at an abandoned mall in Bangkok, Thailand.

In an apocalyptic scene, fish were found living in a deserted mall in Bangkok, Thailand after it caught fire in 1999. That's right--1999. Evidently, the mall wasn't in a prime real estate area!

If you're like me, it's not much of a thrill to make simple soft plastic lures that are flat on one side. Sure, you can buy a set of molds and the whole injection set up but, unless you're going to be making several lures, that option may be cost prohibitive.

Here's a really great Youtube showing you how to make your own injection molds, how to use them, and the finished product.

Sometimes you're too close to a subject to think of all the angles. This was pointed out to me the other day when someone asked me the difference between salt and fresh water.

Everyone has a good idea what salt water is. Basically, it's the ocean or deltas and tributaries not far from the sea. If you've ever swam at the beach and accidentally gulped in a mouth full of ocean water, you know what I'm talking about. The constant wearing away of rocks, coral and general contaminants, including decaying fish and other biological matter, makes the water salty. In fact, I read somewhere that the ocean's salt would create a layer about 500 feet thick--that's about the height of a 40 story building.
