” If this doesn’t get you juiced about fishing, nothing will. If you’ve never caught a mako shark, you might want to give it a try. They jump like no other fish in the sea. These guys found out when they hooked up at the 2:00 mark in this video. Their hollers are genuine and ring true to the spirit of angling, watching in awe as the shark launches into the air time after time.”

10 Of The Greatest Fisheries

” An 857-pound bluefin is maneuvered alongside the boat during the 1949 Tuna Cup in Nova Scotia (top), while Maureen Marazzi caught a 881-pounder in 1971 (lower right); big fish are still caught today in this northerly fishery (bottom left).”

 

 

 

” #1 Canadian Maritimes — Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick

Primary Species: Giant bluefin tuna

Golden Era: 1930 to 1950, 1970s. In the late 1970s, the tuna apparently changed their migration. When the Asian taste for bluefin sushi evolved during the 1980s, prices rose, an industry was born, and Canada prohibited recreational anglers from catching giants. In the past few years, the country has allowed a regulated catch-and-release fishery.

The History: During the late 1800s, harpooners began targeting giants that tangled their herring nets. Through the early 20th century, anglers started pursuing the bluefin, though they were not considered good table fare. Finally, in the 1930s, tackle makers caught up with the fishery, and IGFA founder Michael Lerner helped initiate the International Tuna Cup (Sharp Cup).

Memorable Moment: Bluefin here average 700 pounds, but they get much bigger. The current all-tackle world-record bluefin — a 1,496-pound behemoth — was caught off Nova Scotia in 1979.”


 

 

 

 

 

What A Moron …

 

… Lindsey Stone 

 

 

 ” Is it her employer’s fault that she’s a moron? No – it’s not. And perhaps she’s super awesome at taking care of disabled people. Perhaps firing her isn’t appropriate. I don’t know. I just know that she deserves every ounce of public humiliation and ridicule that is coming her way. Especially since she is still excusing her own behavior.

OBVIOUSLY you meant no disrespect, Lindsey?  OBVIOUSLY?  No.  “

A friend told me the M14 platform and its variants are outdated. I’m betting he’s wrong. What do you think?
