A video by top fishing guide Eric Haataja fishing for fall smallmouth bass. Cranking for big schools of these predator fishes in Fall of October. In this video you can learn how to crank bait fish for small mouth bass.
Few days ago monster size 597 pound - 270 kilo was caught on board Capt. Dom Petrarca's boat
off the Cape Cod area
with spinning gear.
Just a couple of days ago and other big one of 423 pound - 191 kilo was also caught in the same area by Bobby Rice of Reel Deal Fishing Charters.
Seems that this is the only place in the world that this can be done this kind of fishing with positive results.
The incredible catches are for sure very remarkable because giant tunas, simply are too powerful, and dive too swiftly and deeply, to be caught on anything but heavy conventional tackle. For sure these two huge size bluefin tunas are the biggest ever caught with spinning gear.
The 597 pound tuna was caught in only one hour of fight thanks to the Capt.Petrarca ability and the shallow waters of the area.
Huge size bluefin off Nova Scotia, in Canada and in the Mediterranean sea are targeted in much deeper water, making the shallow water off Cape Cod somewhat unique, and perhaps the only place the big fish can be successfully landed on spinning gear.
Capt. Petrarca, who runs Coastal Charters Sportfishing in Marshfield is an expert of this kind of spin fishing.
The IGFA Female Junior Angler Record for Bluefin tuna may have caught few days ago when 12 year old Jenna Gavin caught a giant bluefin weighing 618 pounds - 280 kilos , shattering the previous record by 189 pounds - 52 kilos. Jenna, the daughter of top Capt. John Gavin from "Giant Bluefin Tuna Charters" in Nuva Scotia, Canada, battled the bluefin tuna for over 2 hours as the tuna pushed her to the brink of tears throughout the fight.
The pending record would top the previous junior female angler record for bluefin tuna which was caught back in 2002 by GeorgeAndrea in Sausset, France and weighed 430 pounds - 194 kilos. www.igfa.org
This occurs every year on the east coast of Florida. You can see tarpon explode out of the water, huge hammerhead and bull sharks chasing tarpon and mullet, jacks in a total feeding frenzy and massive bait balls blowing up!
While fishing in Spain, angler Tom Herron, 68, after 45 minutes of fight finally hauled in the 8 feet long river monster wels catfish.
This catfish, caught during an angling holiday in River Segre, in Mequinenza, northeast of the country, tipped the scales at a whopping 221 pounds or 100 kilos.
It was the biggest albino they have ever seen caught on the river
Amazingly, just two hours before, another British angler, John Edwards had broken the world part-albino record with a specimen weighing 209 pounds or 96.4 kilos.
fish had beaten the record of 205 pounds, set in November last year.
Albino wels catfish are not their own species of catfish, so there is no official world record for the lighter-colored fish. This kind of catfish get its unusual appearance as a result of a genetic anomaly that causes the fish to lack pigment and thereby appear white.
Seems they are incredibly rare and are considered trophy fish.
The group of five anglers landed a total of 16 catfish, 5 of which were 200 pounds plus.
