Angler Robert Earl Woodard loves to catch large bass, and has caught several topping 10 pounds.
But in this video he shows us how to catch one in a easy way...
What do you do when a potential record Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) unexpectedly eats the dry fly you are casting for trout? Well, that is exactly what happened to angler Steve Selway on March 22nd while he was fishing Chile’s famed Yelco River, out of Puma Lodge. For nearly an hour, Selway skillfully played the massive king on 6 kg (12 lb) tippet and a 7 wt fly rod, after it crushed the custom fly he was fishing. Once subdued, the fish was quickly measured, documented, and released alive. At 116 cm, the fish is plenty long enough to replace the current All-Tackle Length record, which stands at 111 cm.
On a recent trip to Concordia, Argentina, Jim Schmid caught and released this beautiful golden dorado (Salminus brasiliensis) while fishing the Uruguay River on March 6th. Schmid coerced the dorado to eat a Rapala diving plug that he was casting, and had the fish landed in roughly 10 minutes. Upon seeing the size of the fish, Schmid jumped ashore for a quick weighing, which put the fish at 9.07 kg (20 lb) – big enough to qualify for the men’s 8 kg (16 lb) line class record, which currently stands at 4.54 kg (10 lb).

The unofficial world record shore caught ling (molva molva) has been smashed with the capture of this giant 59 lb 8 oz fish.
This huge predator fish was landed by British angler, Phill Hambrook from a deep water mark on the coast of Saltstraumen in Norway.
The fisherman caught this ling using a large fish hookbait and 20 lb Berkley XTS mainline while under the guidance of John Strange from Guided Fishing Norway.
The biggest ling ever caught (and IGFA record) is an incredible 103 lb fish boated off Kvenvaer in Western Norway by angler Wolfgang Gotz back 2012.

A great video filmed in Seychelles Island, in the middle of Indian Ocean (small islands off of Africa)
The team at "FishTube.tv" had to travel here find one of the only places in the world to catch big dogtooth tuna with topwater lures.
These toothy tunas are known to be incredibly powerful, aggressive predators that feed down in the sea. Rarely do the come up and hit bait or lures on the top of the water.

Squid fishing with hand line off Pacific coast of Mexico is a dangerous affair. Give a look at this video....
This great video was filmed by guys from "Hold Your Breath Productions"; during their fishing day offshore, they had the cameras rolling and the GoPros engaged.
You can see a 600 lb marlin eating tuna and other spectacular images.
