    Oklahoma Angler Catches 8-Pound State Record Smallmouth Bass-2


    Ryan Wasser broke the Oklahoma smallmouth bass record when he pulled an 8-pound, 7-ounce smallie from Lake Lawtonka earlier this month. Wasser, a resident of Pocasset, told Tulsa World he knew the 23 1/8 inch long with an 18 inch girth fish was a record breaker when he reeled it in.

    "I knew I had something pretty close to eight and a half pounds, so I figured I had it by a couple ounces anyway," Wasser said. "She had eaten and she was full of eggs." The previous record was set by Steve McLarty in March 2006. His Lake Eufaula fish weighed 8-pounds, 3-ounces, measured 23 1/2 inches long and had a girth of 19 inches.

    Should Fish and Game Agencies Change Opening Day Dates Because of Weather?-3


    In Minnesota, Christmas takes a back seat for the opening day of walleye season. Along with hockey, Prince and hotdish, walleyes are one of the North Star State's most precious commodities.

    But this year, Minnesota anglers' enthusiasm for opening day could endanger  walleye numbers. Experts say that thanks to a blast of frigid spring weather, walleyes could still be spawning by the potential new start date of May 5.

    African Safari Hunts Under Fire After Spanish King and Trump Brothers Fiascos-4


    African safaris have recently been put in the spotlight, thanks to news about Donald Trump’s sons taking Cape buffalo and leopard in Zimbabwe and Spain’s King Juan Carlos breaking his hip during an unsuccessful elephant hunt in Botswana. But not all attention is flattering.

    Although both adventures are perfectly legal in the host countries, and the trophies taken can be imported to the U.S. under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), some argue that the men’s actions were barbaric and/or immoral.

    Smallfry Angler Breaks Black Grouper World Record-1


    Last year young angler Brielle Bennett took first place in the International Game Fish Association’s Female Smallfry division of world records.  If her performance on March 24, 2012 is any indication of what 2012 holds, she’ll take the first place title for a second year in a row.

    The IGFA announced last week that the young Miss Bennett was fishing Key West, Florida with her uncle Captain Brian Bennett when she landed a 38-pound black grouper (Mycteroperca bonaci). 

    It took Brielle about 10 minutes from time the grouper swallowed her live goggle eye until she was able to hoist it up on the back deck. 

    The catch is even more impressive when you compare the size of Miss Bennett to her catch - that fish is almost as large as she is.

    The current IGFA all tackle record is 124 pounds.
