ChumBuddy

February 25, 2011

[dme:image size="small" side="right" title="shark" index="-1"/]

As someone that’s always looking for new and creative ways to emotionally scar his children, I am pleased to announce that I’ve come across a new product that will allow me to do just that while offering the added bonus of creeping me out as well.  I’m speaking of course of the ChumBuddy.

    VanDam Crowned Classic King-3

    by

    Kevin VanDam the 2011 Bassmaster Classic Champion:

    Kevin VanDam of Kalamazoo, Mich., dominated the 2011 Bassmaster Classic on the Louisiana Delta surrounding New Orleans on Sunday. In doing so, VanDam not only picked up $500,000 in cold hard cash, he did so in record-breaking fashion and cemented himself as the greatest bass angler to ever compete.

    True to form, and that form is of a true competitor and champion, VanDam got better each day of the pressure-filled tournament. On Day One he weighed in 19-3 pounds of bass, on Day Two 22-8 pounds hit the scales on the final crucial day the lean athlete boated 28 pounds even.

    Classic Day 1: Delta Showdown-1

    by

     

    Day 1 of the Bassmasters Classic is in the books and although fan favorite Kevin Van Dam is most decidedly in the hunt for his fourth title, it was Aaron Martens of Leeds, Alabama who sits in the catbird seat with a total weight of 20 pounds, 7 ounces. He also took the largest fish of the day with a 5-pound, 9-ounce largemouth. Scott Rook is second in the standings at 19 pounds, 6 ounces and Van Dam is third at 19-3.

    Access to Montana Trout Water in Trouble?-4

    by

     

    If House Bill 309 becomes legislation in Montana, it could mean the difference between wading your favorite trout water, and breaking the law.

    HB 309 is a bill that will be put before the senate shortly. Like most legislation, it’s complicated, but the part that should concern fishermen is the fact that the bill could potentially change access rights for Montana anglers. As the law stands, the public has the right to make recreational use of the surface water, which of course includes fishing it, as long as you’re within the ordinary high water mark and you make access of it through a public right of way.

    Kiwi Banjo Player Lands Monster Shark-5

    by

    Kiwi (a person from New Zealand – not the fruit) Alan Randle won the New Zealand Havelock Fishing Competition this past week when he successfully battled a 133 kilogram – or in the real world 293 pounds – seven gill shark to his boat. 

    Randle told New Zealand’s The Marlborough Express that fighting the leviathan put so much strain on his fingers that he feared his "banjo playing days" might be over.  If you think Randle’s exaggerating, consider that the shark was so heavy – for fish of that area – that the crane at Picton Harbour broke while weighing it.

    Shark Attacks Reach 10-Year High-0

    by

    Shark attacks were up in 2010 according to a report from from the International Shark Attack File from the University of Florida.

    Seventy nine people were attacked by sharks worldwide in 2010 which was the highest number in a decade -- in 2009 there were only 63 shark attacks worldwide. Six people died in 2010 from sharks which was up from the 4.3 10-year average.

    But scientists believe that the increase is not because shark populations are on the rise or because they are growing more aggressive. Experts say the increase in attacks is actually due to an increase in human populations and a growing interest in water recreation.

    Fishy Business-2

    by

    People around the world are eating more fish than ever, but are fish stocks going to be able to handle the pressure?

    According to a report from the United Nations fish consumption increased to about 38 pounds per person globally in 2008. This is up about 1 pound from 2007 (doesn't sound like much, but extrapolate that across the planet and you've got a big number). The data is from three years ago because it takes so long to gather and decipher.

    The good news is that much of the fish consumed these days comes from fish farms, and not ocean fisheries. According to the CBC 52.5 million tons of fish is produced by aquaculture or fish farms. This is worth about $98.4 billion dollars.

    Gimmie Shelter-14

    by

    Scientists in New Zealand are discovering what bass anglers have known for years – fish like shelter.
       
    Dr Mark Morrison and his staff from the New Zealand National Institute of Water & Atmospheric Research have been experimenting with mats of fake sea grass in efforts to lure fish back into areas that have seen loss of upwards of 90 percent native sea grass. 

    The mats are actually wire frames with plastic grass fronds ranging from 5cm to 30cm - Ugh! That stupid metric system. Must everything I write about involve math computations?! - about 2 to 11 inches in length.  Morrison explained, "We made them [the mats] with tantalizing long blades of artificial grass, the things fish really go for.”
