    Video: USFWS Reintroduces Bull Trout in Oregon, Population Thriving-0

    by

    In past years the Pacific branch of the USFWS has taken deliberate steps to restore native fish species to Oregon waters. The agency proposed delisting the Oregon chub from its threatened status earlier this year, making it the first fish to escape the Endangered Species List without going extinct. Now the latest fish on its priority list to receive attention is the bull trout, which wildlife officials began reintroducing to Oregon’s Clackamas River in 2011.

    USFWS shared a stunning video detailing the history and progress of the trout’s restoration on its Facebook page Tuesday. The clip includes beautiful underwater shots of bull trout and their habitat, along with interviews from the wildlife officials who’ve been restoring the trout to their historic waters.

    New State-Record Mahi Mahi Caught in Delaware-0

    by

    A 56.9-pound mahi mahi caught this month has set a new Delaware state record, according to the Delaware DNREC.

    William "Butch" Emmert of Rehoboth Beach hooked the fish while trolling an artificial ballyhoo rig and blue and white Ilander in about 360 feet of water, reports the Delmarva Town Crier. Emmert landed the fish on the deck of the Elizabeth Jane, which is captained by Jason King. Capt. King targeted the tip of the Baltimore Canyon for this record-setting fishing trip, which also yielded several smaller dorado and a 102-pound mako shark.

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

    by

    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: Pennsylvania Game Commission Fits Elk with Camera Collar-0

    by

    The Pennsylvania Game Commission has collared a cow elk with a video camera, hoping the elk-eye view will provide insight into the cervid's habitat preferences and cow-to-calf interactions.

    While tracking animals for research is nothing new, this video offers a great inside look at how researchers handle the whole darting and collaring process. Elk biologist Jeremy Banfield also notes in the video that, to his knowledge, this is the first time an elk has been outfitted with a video camera.

    Huge Cubera Snapper Could Shatter Alabama State Record-0

    by

    A thirty-minute fight with a monster cubera snapper off the coast of Alabama may result in a new state record.

    Brett Rutledge and David Simms were trolling with live hardtail for mackerel in 170 feet of water about 40 miles off of Dauphin Island when something big hit one of the lines. Rutledge immediately grabbed the Shimano Speedmaster reel spooled with 30-pound-test monofilament line and commenced to fighting whatever was on the other end.

    "At first I thought it was a big amberjack because I'd caught quite a few jacks earlier. But when it ran away from the wreck we were fishing, I immediately thought it was a shark," Rutledge told AL.com.

    "Then I got a visual on it and told David, 'Get the gaff!'"

    RMEF Opposes Congressman’s Call for Yellowstone Wolf Buffer Zone-4

    by

    In the latest move to curtail wolf hunting across the country, Oregon Congressman Peter DeFazio–one of the most vocal, influential, and persistent critics of Western wolf management–called for federal intervention to protect gray wolves that range beyond Yellowstone National Park.

    DeFazio claims hunters who harvest wolves outside park boundaries are directly responsible for the recent decline in Yellowstone’s wolf population. To help solve this “problem," he penned a letter to the Department of the Interior requesting the agency coordinate among states to establish a “wolf safety zone” around Yellowstone National Park. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation responded to DeFazio with a letter of their own.
