A crew of anglers dropping a load of chum while trolling near the Gulf of Carpentia in Northern Australia attracts the attention of a load of sizeable sharks that end up trailing the boat.
Actually, such a “load” is sometimes called a “shiver” and this one, no doubt, stimulates precisely that reaction to most who will view this video.
Would private landowners grant hunting and fishing access more readily if they weren’t legally liable for the health and safety of their gun- and rod-wielding visitors?
In discussions of expanding access around the country, you hear this a lot: that legal liability is a big impediment to recreational access. But a review of case law indicates that it’s almost always a non-issue.
That’s the conclusion of Dr. Brett Wright, a professor of parks, recreation, and tourism management at Clemson University. He told attendees at last month’s North American Whitetail Summit that access for hunting remains a complex issue, but that liability exposure to landowners is more “myth than reality.”
They don’t get much bigger than this!
A group of Forida anglers calling themselves "Landshark Fishing," recently caught this goliath hammerhead on the Atlantic side of the Florida peninsula. The brute measured 14 feet in length (for comparison, a 2015 Suburban is a little over 18 feet) and weighed more than 700 pounds.
Viktor Hluben battled the shark with a custom rod and 14-0 Penn Senator big-game reel affixed with a circle hook for almost an hour before the group was able to tail-rope the fish and bring it to shore. The hammerhead was released unharmed after pictures and video were taken.
Davy Crockett’s “Ol’ Betsy.” Daniel Boone’s “Tick Licker.” Annetta Morris’ “Netty.”
It takes a remarkable gun to earn a nickname, but Morris’ Benelli Super Black Eagle II has both the track record and the reputation to join the pantheon of firearms with a handle. Netty, as the shotgun is called by its legion of fans, isn’t ornate, pedigreed, or particularly noteworthy. But in just three years, the semi-auto has killed more gobblers than most turkey guns will shoot in a lifetime.
If you’re looking to break an Atlantic sailfish record, Angola seems to be the place to do it.
The current IGFA all tackle world record Atlantic sailfish of 141 pounds was caught off Angola in 1994. Now angler Marco Couto stands to bust that all tackle world record with his leviathan 142-pound, 6-ounce spindlebeak plucked from Angolan waters.
Cuoto won the battle with the behemoth billfish during the 10th Annual Lobito Big Game Tournament. Another angler, Luisa Picarra, also hooked a monster 136-pound 14-ounce sailfish that was submitted for a women’s 20-pound class record.
Springtime is one of the best times of the year to forage for wild edibles. The tender new growth is usually at its most mild and flavorful at this time. Wintercress, watercress, and Pennsylvania bittercress are three members of the mustard family with intense flavors. From bitter mustard to peppery spice, these plants will stand out in a wild salad or dish of cooked greens.
Watercress (Nasturtium officinale)
Winning the Pro Am California Tournament Trail Event was pretty sweet for angler Keith Bryan, but even sweeter was the fact that he may have just broken the spotted bass world record, decking a whopping 10.48 pounder. Bryan casted a 5-inch Yamamoto Senko out into a secluded area of New Melonies Reservoir, when the waters erupted around his lure from a crushing hit.
Bryan, a seasoned angler and owner of Powell Fishing Rods, exclaimed, “She came up several times just so you can see the hook in her mouth about 20 yards away, then she would just rip line and go down.”

2014 Yamaha Viking
MSRP: Starts at $11,500
After spending an eventful day trail riding and rock crawling California’s wonderful San Bernardino National Forest in the 2014 Yamaha Viking, there's no question the new Viking is a significant improvement over the decommissioned Rhino it now replaces. The all-new model is the most powerful, comfortable, and capable SxS Yamaha has ever produced.
Here’s a great Monday pick-me-up to check out on your next break. This moose calf tried to jump a fence but didn’t even come close. Instead its front hooves fell between the slats and the homeowner has to shave slivers of wood from the gate with a hatchet. The rescue doesn’t take long and, unlike most wildlife rescues, the freed calf hangs around afterward. It stares at the guys behind the fence for several minutes before eventually taking off down the snowy road. According to comments, this took place in Quesnel, B.C.
