    Damage to Washington's Stillaguamish River Could Last for Decades After Mudslide-0


    The massive mudslide in Washington has done untold ecological damage to Stillaguamish River, one of the best-known salmon and steelhead rivers in the Northwest.

    The most severe damage comes to the river itself. More than 45 miles of the once pristine river is now stained dark from silt. Waters stand almost stagnant as the mudslide formed a dam that blocks water from moving. A pumping system installed to aid in search efforts spews a constant stream of sewage and chemicals escaped from devastated homes and capsized automobiles.

    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.

    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.

    Sochi Rules: No Toilet Fishing During the Olympics-0


    There will be no toilet fishing at the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

    This information coming to the world via Canadian snowboarder Sebastien Toutant’s tweet showing a sign he found in a Sochi bathroom.

    According to the sign, the only thing one is advised to do on the toilet is sit upon it.  Things frowned upon include urinating into it while standing, vomiting into the bowl (or maybe bobbing for something in the toilet?) standing on the toilet, and fishing it.

    Minnesota Brothers Build Monster Snow Shark-2


    When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.

    When life dumps umpteen feet of winter’s wrath on your yard, make a shark.

    Brothers Austin, Connor, and Trevor Bartz of New Brighton, Minnesota did just that. The shark that they constructed from ice and snow measures 16 feet in length. The snow fish is complete with teeth, dorsal fin, gills, and menacing eyes.

Seven children were injured in the attack with one very unlucky seven-year-old girl bitten so badly that part of her finger had to be amputated.

    Fly Fisherman Catches Biggest Salmon in Scotland in 75 Years-1


    "It's taken me almost 40 years to catch a 25-pounder, but this is simply incredible," says Scottish angler Shamus Jennings (could a guy named Shamus be from anywhere other than Scotland?) of the monstrous fish he caught at Boleside Beat on the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders this past weekend.
