    8-Year-Old Boy Lands Alabama State-Record King Mackerel-0

    by

    An eight-year-old boy reeled in the biggest king mackerel fish ever landed in the state of Alabama Wednesday.

    Andrew Quinn, of Scottville, Mich., was on his first deep-sea fishing trip when he caught the 68-pound, 3-ounce fish, al.com reports. Despite beating the previous record by 5.5 ounces — Michael J. Kirchler, of Mobile, Ala., caught a 67-pound, 15-ounce king mackerel in 2002 — Quinn will likely have to share the state-record title thanks to Alabama’s rules for saltwater fish.

    According to the regulations, saltwater fish weighing more than 25 pounds must beat the previous record by at least .5 percent in order to be considered a new record. Quinn’s fish will likely miss it by 1.5 ounces, Kevin Anson, the Marine Resources Division’s chief fisheries biologist told al.com.

    Michigan to Ban Wild Boars In Hopes of Curbing Environmental Damage-0

    by

    A ban on wild boars is set to take place on Sunday in Michigan to deal with the state’s growing invasion.

    Under the ban, game ranches in Michigan can no longer possess wild boars, reports Local 4. Many wild boars escape from game ranches, and go on to damage crops, carry disease and pose harm to humans and other animals. The hogs have been spotted in 72 of Michigan’s 83 counties, reports the DNR.

    First Graders Work to Make the Black Bear Minnesota's State Mammal-4

    by

    The state of Minnesota has many state symbols. The state fish is the walleye. The state flower was originally the wild lady slipper, but hark – that was incorrect. The state legislature corrected the error to their grievous mistake to the correct flower, the showy lady slipper. The state drink is milk. The state muffin is the blueberry muffin -- a good choice if I do say so myself.

    All of these state symbols, yet when an impassioned group of 1st graders want to make the black bear the state’s official mammal they are told that the bill is merely a “fluff” bill.

    Man Fights Off Great White Shark With Spear Gun-3

    by

    A man spearfishing off the Big Island of Hawaii was attacked by what is believed to be a 16-foot great white shark this past Saturday. This attack is newsworthy for two reasons: great whites are extremely rare in Hawaiian waters, and the man survived the attack fairly unscathed.

    Mark Barville says he was spearfishing in 20 feet of water about 100 yards from shore when he surfaced to see a shark eating the 18-pound awa fish he had shot earlier now hanging from his dive buoy. Barville knew from his experience as a commercial fisherman and longtime spearer that it was a great white.
