    South Carolina's Controversial Cormorant Hunt Culls 11K Birds-3


    More than 1,000 South Carolina hunters received special permits this winter to hunt double-crested cormorants on two lakes in the east-central part of the state. In the span of just one month, hunters harvested 11,653 of the fish-eating birds. One hunter alone reported killing 278 birds, according to The State newspaper.

    Local anglers requested state action to quell the rising numbers of cormorants, which they say eat enough baitfish to negatively impact game fish populations. The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources responded by introducing a special hunting program this year on Lake Marion and Lake Moultrie.

    Otter Fishing Tradition Faces Extinction in Bangladesh -0


    It’s a conversation I’d love to see happen: A discussion of fishing techniques between a Florida bass angler and net fisherman from Narail, Bangladesh.

    The Floridian boasts of using the latest soft lure, in response the fisher from Narail describes how he directs his trained otters to drive fish into his net.

    Yep. The fisherman from Narail utilizes trained otters to drive fish from the shallows and underwater vegetation into his net.

    Unfortunately, the above comparison of fishing techniques will never come to fruition.  And not just because I can’t afford to go to Bangladesh.  It won’t happen because the centuries-old Narail method is almost a thing of the past, due in part to depleting fish stock, human encroachment, and pollution.

    Video: Two Guys Go Crazy When They Haul Monster Lake Trout Through the Ice-0


    This is why we fish! Check out the absolutely infectious excitement these two anglers expend when one of them hooks into a monster 40-inch-plus lake trout.

    The two men scream “dude” umpteen times, hoot and holler constantly, and almost crack the ice with their girl-at-a-boy-band-concert shrills. It's like the ice fishing version of double rainbow.

    Video: Little Pike Races to Shore to Avoid Getting Eaten by Bigger Pike-0


    This is one of those rare instances where a fish is safer on dry land than in water.

    The northern pike in this video was just safely released and started swimming away only to return seconds later, hurling itself onto shore in search of safety. The reason for this strange behavior appears seconds later when a bigger pike strikes. If only the people on shore had thrown a bait in the water...

    Kid Lands 114-Pound Louisiana State Record Catfish-2


    Twelve-year-old angler Lawson Boyte landed a spot in the record books when he pulled a fish from the Mississippi River that was larger than him. The Oak Grove, La., resident admits that catching the 114-pound catfish took more than just skill. 

    "It was more luck than it was skill to catch that big fish. I think the thing that done it was eating Vienna sausages,” he told KNOE 8 News.
    Boyte’s fish was so large that it wouldn’t fit in a regular-sized freezer. Instead, it was held in a freezer at the concession stand at Oak Grove High School.

    Update: Potential World-Record Trout Caught Illegally-1


    An ice-fisherman is in hot water after lying about where he caught his potential record-breaking trout.

    Rob Scott of Crane Lake, Minn. landed a 52-pound, 3-ounce monster after an hour-long fight that took place above and below the ice of Lac la Croix on Feb. 8. Following the epic battle, Scott, 65, took the behemoth to a taxidermist in Duluth to be weighed, measured and stuffed.

    News of the monster fish got out and Scott’s story made headlines in the Star Tribune. This caught the attention of Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources in Aitkokan, Ontario who recalled checking Scott’s fishing license on the Canadian side of Lac la Croix on the day of his catch. When the officers checked on Scott he had just caught a 4-pound trout. Officers investigated the matter and, when confronted, Scott admitted that he caught his potential record breaker fish after the officers had left him. He stated that he was so high on adrenaline that he wasn’t thinking straight when he gave the smaller fish to another angler and hauled his prize catch about a hundred feet back across the border and into the U.S. via snowmobile.

    Possible Ice Fishing World-Record Carp-0


    Andrew Plumridge set out on the Housatonic River for his second-ever fishing trip last week. He returned with a 32-pound common carp and a pending ice fishing world record.

    Plumridge, 41, hit the river with three buddies and fishing guide Paul Tawczynski on Jan. 31 near Sheffield, Mass., reports the Berkshire Eagle. The group caught just three fish that morning and waited six hours for another bite. But it was worth the wait, and after a 30-minute struggle Plumridge succeeded in landing the giant carp.

    "We had that fish to the hole probably 15 times," Tawczynski told the Berkshire Eagle. "Every time we got close enough to touch it made a run of about 10 to 15 yards. Finally, it got tired and laid down by the hole where I could pull it up. There was absolute elation from everyone on the ice."

    Winter Storm Fish Kill Shuts Down NC Speckled Trout Fishing-1


    In the wake of last week’s winter storm, a massive cold-stun kill of speckled trout forced the North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries to suspend all commercial and recreational harvests statewide through June 15. The snow and icy runoff proved too much for many speckled trout in shallow coastal creeks and the fish failed to withstand the freezing temperatures, reports North Carolina Sportsman.
