Roffer’s Ocean Fishing Forecasting Services calls the three ocean eddies a 'rare condition'
This picture may be worth 1,000 words, but is it also worth more than 160 pounds?I admit to being a bit awestruck when i saw this little item from Down Under. Just sayin’ — THAT is one hell of a jack!
Gulf of Maine cod in the Northeast are in serious decline (according to a peer-reviewed 2011 assessment), so we'll give fishermen an increase in the quota expected per that assessment of 1,500 metric tons by nearly 450 percent to 6,700 metric tons.Meanwhile, in the Gulf of Mexico, assessments show red snapper rebounding, and almost any fishing trip shows the Gulf absolutely lousy with them. So we'll give deny recreational fishermen more than a miserable 40-day season with a bag limit of just two red snapper per day.What's wrong with this picture?
Vote next week to save our living coral reefs!
A lot of the best redfishing happens along the northern Gulf Coast seashores.
Every angler who fishes or ever might fish the Gulf of Mexico, as well as every true environmentalist who cares about the Gulf, owes a major "thank you!" to the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council. As I write this (Thursday morning, April 19), the council has just unanimously voted to go forward with the process that will list the Gulf's decommissioned oil rigs as Essential Fish Habitat and Habitat Areas of Particular Concern, official federal designations designed to protect critical habitat.
Record number of sailfish caught on first day of tournament
The Virginia Awards Program is much more than what its name suggests.
The reef-dwelling species we love to catch — such as red and mutton snapper, various species of grouper, amberjack and on and on — are not generally born on the reef. Far from it — literally. Most of these species spawn in open water, leaving their fertilized eggs to float near the surface.
