    Joseph Seeberger was bass fishing on Lake Bellaire on October 13 when the big fish struck his minnow.  It took Joseph, his brother Chuck, and friends Jason Orbeck and Derek Barnes more than two hours to land 58-pound monster.

    Couple Indicted for 30,000 Dead Fish, Cyanide Contamination-0


    On Earth Day this spring, 30,000 dead fish washed up on the banks of Cleveland's Rocky River. Biologists and wildlife crews were initially baffled by the source of the disaster, but officials have since identified cyanide as the source of the fish kill. 

    On Wednesday officials accused Grafton, Ohio residents Renato Montorsi, 79, and his wife Teresina, 74, of pouring 55 gallons of the poisonous liquid down a storm sewer. A grand jury indicted the couple on charges of conspiracy and obstruction of justice, and Renato Montorsi is accused of Clean Water Act violations, reports

    WI Angler Catches Potential State Record Bass, Lets it Go-3


    Gabriella Esperson of Whitewater, Wisconsin let go what most anglers can only dream of: a potential new state record largemouth bass.

    The 21-year-old biology major and UW-Whitewater fishing team member was fishing on an undisclosed lake with her boyfriend Ryan Nelson near Edgerton last week Tuesday when a fish hit her wacky-rigged 6-inch soft plastic bait. Gabriella, who had caught and released a 13-inch largemouth bass only 45 minutes earlier, knew she had hooked something big.

    New Mexico Tiger Muskie Record Broken ... Again-1


    Marcos Mata’s 50.5-inch, 38-pound, 2-ounce tiger muskie is officially the new New Mexico state record. The Albuquerque resident’s entry marks the fourth time in the past year and a half that the record has changed hands. 

    The previous state record was held by the 31-pound, 14-ounce muskie caught by Justin Easley of Edgewood. These records show that the nonnative muskie is adapting quite well to New Mexico waters.

    The most exciting news to come from the waters of Great Britain doesn’t have anything to do with the London Olympics.  It has to do with the enormous fish caught by James Jones that may end up being the largest freshwater fish ever caught on the island.

    State Record Tiger Muskie Caught in ... New Mexico?-0


    New Mexico isn't exactly known for being home to world-class muskie fishing. But, if stories like this keep popping up on the wire, that could change.

    Earlier this summer Justin Easley caught this 46-inch tiger muskie weighing 31 pounds and 14 ounces in Blue Water Lake. His fish broke the New Mexico state record, which has changed hands three times in just the last year and a half, according to the Associated Press.

    Two Spearfishermen Fend off Great White Shark-2


    I don’t think nerves get any calmer than the ones barely transmitting through Nathan Podmore and Dave Richards. These two men cautiously and methodically kept a circling great white at bay with just the tip of their spearguns.

    Report: Asian Carp Could Thrive in All 5 Great Lakes-3


    A new scientific report says that invasive Asian carp have the ability to thrive in all five of the Great Lakes.

    The study was led by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada and found there would be enough food to fuel the invasion.

    “The questions everyone has been asking are: ‘Can a breeding population survive in the Great Lakes and would it be a significant problem if they did?'” USGS Director Marcia McNutt said in a released statement. “Now we know the answers and unfortunately they are ‘yes and yes.’ ”

    Sorry Guys, NOAA Says Mermaids Are Not Real-0


    "Mermaids: The Body Found," a recently aired documentary-styled science fiction program on the Discovery Channel's Animal Planet, has stirred some public interest in whether mermaids are real or not. So much that the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration wrote a piece on its Ocean Facts page denying their existence.

    "No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found. Why, then, do they occupy the collective unconscious of nearly all seafaring peoples? That’s a question best left to historians, philosophers, and anthropologists," wrote the NOAA on its Ocean Facts page.

    Bowfishing for Snakeheads: A Cure for Canada's Invasion?-6


    John Rorapaujh thinks Canadians are going about their attempts to free the Great White North of snakeheads all wrong. Fishing for the invasive species won’t work. Nailing them with a bow and arrow will.

    Rorapaujh is a member of the Potomac Snakehead Tournament and his comments come on the heels of news that crews from the Canadian Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations have been unable to clear Burnaby’s Central Park of snakeheads.
