    Video: Huge School of Redfish Charges Boat-1


    If you've ever fished for redfish, this will stop your heart. A huge school of reds cruise by the anglers in this video. At one point, the blitzing fish are actually bouncing off the boat. Unfortunately, there's no information on where this video came from. But it was reportedly shot on February 20.

    It's kind of cool that the guys aren't too concerned with catching a fish, they're just in awe of what they're seeing. But, we'd probably be scrambling for the nearest rod. The best quote: "The reds are trying to eat that bird!"

    Angler Lands Giant Hammerhead From Beach, Wins Florida Fishing Tournament-0


    It was go big or go home for Peter Buban and he did both. During a night of surf fishing in Florida’s Palm Beach County, Buban caught a 13-foot, 9-inch hammerhead shark that went about 1,000 pounds and took home a big prize – first place in the annual Blacktip Challenge shark fishing tournament.

     "I basically beat everybody by two and a half or three feet,” Buban told WFLX (Fox 29).  "It's very rare that somebody is going to beat you with this kind of fish."

    Video: Kayak Angler Lands and Unhooks Sailfish with His Hat-0


    A South African kayak angler successfully landed and dehooked a sailfish using his hat as an improvised fish glove.

    Jasper Pons was fishing for queen mackerel off the coast of Westbrook when a sailfish grabbed one of his baits, GrindTV reports. This alone would have made for a sporty situation, but when a second sail decided to crash the party, life took a turn for the interesting.

    Best Lures: The Only 6 Baits You Need to Catch (Almost) Any Fish-1


    Although you may covet a tackle box stuffed with lures, these essential baits will fool (almost) every fish that swims. Clear out your tackle box this spring and cast these super six baits.

    1) Heddon Zara Spook

    Quick History:
    This top­water bait was developed in 1939 (although it has a wooden forefather called the Zarragossa). Its side-to-side action inspired the phrase “walk the dog,” which is how most describe the technique of twitching it across the water. Thousands of lures are now built to imitate this action.
