    Video: "Shark" Sighting in Lake Ontario Revealed as Shark Week Hoax-0


    Strange things were afoot…errr, a fin…in Lake Ontario.

    A video posted to You Tube last week, allegedly shot on Wolfe Island, where the St. Lawrence River meets Lake Ontario, shows three anglers responding to a mystery fish breaching near a dock. The fish is gray in color, rather large, and has a prominent dorsal fin. The latter characteristic caused many to cry shark.

    That is, until Bell Media announced the video was staged to build hype for the Discovery Canada's already wildly popular Shark Week programming. The animal in the video was actually a prosthetic model shark.

    Video: Utah Officials Restock Remote Lakes by Plane-0


    It’s raining fish in Utah. In order to restock lakes inaccessible by truck or car, wildlife officials replenish fish populations by dumping them from low-flying aircraft.

    This may not be news to some, but Kamas State Fish Hatchery supervisor Ted Hallows released new GoPro footage showing the stocking process.

    Ohio Teen Catches 40-Pound Carp from Flooded Street-0


    An Ohio teen has just proved wrong the adage of “fishing will keep kids off the street” by actually catching a fish on the street. And a 3-foot long, 40-pound carp at that.

    Sixteen-year-old Jake Sawyer heard from his North Royalton neighbors that there was a very large fish on the street following Monday’s heavy rain.

    West Virginia State-Record Blue Catfish Caught on Practice Run-0


    Some guys like Austin Hoffman of Milton, W.Va., have all the luck when it comes to fishing. He had no intention of fishing on April 26 but that didn’t stop him from catching the new state-record blue catfish.

    “I was actually going out to test out a new drift rod holder set up I put in my boat,” Hoffman, 22, explained to Metro News. “I took my girlfriend with me and didn’t’ have any intention of catching anything. I didn’t even bring a net.”

    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.
