We’ve all had nights when we just can’t lie down in bed and sleep, whether it’s from heartburn, cardiac problems, hip or back aches – it could be a variety of reasons. Those are the nights we’d give anything for a comfortable chair to sleep in, one that reclines to exactly the right degree, raises feet and legs to precisely the desired level, supports the head and shoulders properly, operates easily even in the dead of night, and sends a hopeful sleeper right off to dreamland.

FISHING BIG WORMS FOR SUMMER BASS BRANDON LESTER

A

s far as baits go for summer fishing, you’ll see a wide variety of techniques come into play. Big crankbaits, jigs, swimbaits, spoons and all sorts of other baits will catch fish as the warm water temperatures of summer arrive. One bait I’ve always had a ton of confidence in this time of year is a big worm. It’s a very versatile bait that just gets bites in the summer months. Big plastic worms have been around a long time, and they’re often overlooked. You can use a big worm with a light bullet-shaped weight and swim it through grass in shallow water or put a heavier weight on and fish it 30 feet deep. It has a big profile that is just the right size for fish looking to make an easy meal after the spawn is done. That shallow grass bite is extremely fun and isn’t all that common these days. X Zone Lures has a new one out called the Blitz worm that’s 11 inches long and is the perfect size for big summertime bass. It has a ribbon-style tail that has great

action and is available in the best colors as well. I throw big worms on an MHX-NEPS90HF 7’6” heavy power rod and 17-lb. Vicious 100% fluorocarbon. That rod is perfect for maintaining the proper contact with the worm on a long cast and getting a good hook in the fish, especially big fish. A key part of my gear setup is the Mustad Big Bite worm hook. It’s a round-bend style and a 4/0 up to 6/0 is my go-to for big worm fishing. In recent years, we’ve been fishing big worms on a heavy shaky head, too. A ¼- to ½-ounce shaky head allows the worm to stand up a little straighter on the bottom. It is a great way to fish them. I always encourage people to try new baits and new techniques, but don’t pass up throwing a big worm this summer. It works – trust me.

ith state control of Gulf of Mexico red snapper seasons, recreational anglers are seeing more access to one of the most popular fisheries on the planet. However, keeping track of when and where you’re allowed to fish is now harder than ever. With 2019 state summer seasons already open and rocking along, here’s a quick run-down of the regulations so you can tell whether or not you’re allowed to make red snapper fishing a part of your summer vacation.

State Seasons Florida: June 11-July 12, with a possible fall season if there is available quota. Alabama: Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from June 1-July 28, plus Thursday, July 4. Mississippi: May 24-Sept. 2 (Labor Day), with a mid-season closure from July 8-28. Louisiana: Opened May 25 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until the state’s recreational quota of 743,000 pounds is met. Harvest is also allowed on the Monday of Memorial Day and the Thursday of the Fourth of July. Texas: Open year-round in state waters. State waters extend from the coastline out to the 9-mile mark for Texas and Florida’s Gulf coast. State waters in Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana stretch out to three miles from the coast. The daily bag limit is two fish per person with a 16-inch minimum length, except in Texas, where there is a four fish per person daily limit with a 15-inch minimum length requirement. A state-specific license is needed for whichever state waters an angler plans to be in possession of red snapper. Each state is also collecting its own red snapper harvest data. Reporting requirements and self-reporting for each state can be conducted through the following apps. See the state websites for information on how to obtain these apps. Florida: iAngler Guld Red Snapper App Alabama: Snapper Check Mississippi: Tails n’ Scales Louisiana: Recreational Offshore Landing Permit App Texas: iSnapper App Federal Season Federally permitted for-hire vessels have 62 days to fish the Gulf of Mexico in federal waters. The federal season is June 1-Aug. 2.

BIG YELLOWFINS HERALD SECOND HIGH SEASON IN COSTA RICA By Craig Sutton

T

he second high-season here in northwest Costa Rica is in full effect. Big schools of yellowfin tuna have swept into the Nosara area, and for the next three months we will be chasing them up and down the coast. May, which is a slow month, saw a record 79 trips for FishingNosara. Better still, the calendar for the rest of the summer is full of top-flight anglers. Despite the momentary lull in trips, the crews delivered the goods with multiple marlin releases backed-up with some big yellowfin tuna. Capt. William on the flagship Wanderer led the way this month with 20 trips, edging out Capt. Carlos on the battleship Discoverer by two trips. Right behind them was 2019 Ship of Fools winner, Capt. Alex on the Harvester, aka the People’s Champion, with 17 trips. In mid-May we endured a few rainstorms, but the weather has been mostly nice and perfect for fishing. In early May we welcomed a fun group of Texans for a fierce week of fishing. Merritt and Brian Wruble, Nicole and Bubba Miles, Glenn and Dahni Bloomfield posted this on social media: “We had such an amazing trip! Thank you to the staff, captains and deck hands. You all went above and beyond to make sure we had a great trip with great memories! Thank you, and we can’t wait to start planning our next trip down to Nosara!”

We also welcomed Cameron Frowick’s group of Tyler, Texas-based anglers to the blue water. Capt. William braved the mid-month rains and delivered a wide array of meat fish for these hungry folks. Meredith Frowick wrote this post: “The day was amazing! Went out in the Pacific Ocean and we all caught something. Got three yellowfin tunas and one mahi-mahi. Thank you for the fun time.” May was also a time for reunions; back in 2012 we hosted the Ganoe family, of Jacksonville, Fla., as winners of the initial FishingNosara Family Cup kayak tournament. That family trip made a huge impression because Maegan Ganoe chose Nosara as the spot to get married to her now-husband Jose Morales. No trip to Nosara is complete without a fishing mission, and the newlyweds joined the Harvester on May 17 for an incredible day of action. The headliner was a big Blue Marlin (pictured) that snagged three baits simultaneously. Mate Wilson took command of the cockpit and kept all three anglers on the same page. After the fight we safely released this monster alive and well. “Thank you Alex for putting us on this huge Blue Marlin to celebrate Dad’s birthday and wrap up our wedding week here in Nosara! It took Jose, Daniel and me over 30 minutes to reel it in! Blue Marlin off our bucket list,” wrote Maegan. Call Craig Sutton ASAP at 904-591-2161, so they can fit you into the summer schedule.

FLW College Fishing National Championship

On June 4-6 2019, 148 college teams competed on the Potomac River in the FLW College Fishing National Championship. The tournament was launched from Smallwood State Park in Marbury, MD. To qualify for this event, the teams had to place in the top 10 in one of the regional qualifying events or in the top 25 at the college FLW open on Kentucky Lake. The FLW BFL tournament trail took on this fishery for the BFL All American tournament just days before this college event, yielding surprisingly lower weights than the younger anglers to follow. Day one of the tournament brought clear skies and little wind. The West Virginia University team of Nolan Minor and Thomas Raines took the day one lead with a 18lb 5oz bag of largemouth. The pair caught most of their fish flipping a Texas rigged Zoom Baits baby brush hog in junebug pattern paired with a 1/4oz tungsten weight on a 4/0 VMC flippin hook along with a Zoom Baits trick worm in redbug pattern paired with a 1/8oz shakey head to fill a limit early on. Their kicker fish of the day was a 6lber that came out of Broad Creek on flooded brush using a green pumpkin 3/8oz Z-Man Jackhammer Chatterbait. On day two the skies darkened and the wind picked up, making the bite in the grass heat up for the Murray State team of Adam Puckett and Blake Albertson. The duo brought 18lbs 14oz to the scales on day two to take over the lead, which they would eventually hold on to on the final day, edging out the Bethel University team of Tristan McCormick and Dakota Pierce by just 3oz with a three day total of 51lbs 3oz. The winning pair used a Reaction Innovations spicy beaver to flip flooded brush on a high tide. The two stated that there were two bite windows of about 30 minutes each day before and after the high tide, the water had to be moving for the pair to get a bite. They also added to their catch with a 1/2oz Z-man Jackhammer Chatterbait in white/chartreuse. The two took home the grand prize of a brand new Ranger Z175 with a 115hp Evinrude outboard and an entry into the FLW cup where each angler is guaranteed $10,000 with the chance of winning up to $300,000.

What’s new in the freshwater fishing world? The newest baits to hit the market this month are sure to make an impact on the shallow water bass fishing in our area. From 6th Sense, two new baits have been released including the Cloud 9 silent magnum squarebill crankbait, which will be perfect for fishing around vertical cover and over the tops of grass flats. The second 6th Sense bait to release is the MagDog walking bait. This will be the perfect bait for imitating baitfish when bass are schooling on shad or other groups of baitfish. Another bait that will be key in our area around cover and grass flats will be the new Megabass Magdraft freestyle swimbait. This bait is similar to the traditional Magdraft swimbait many people have developed a confidence in but it does not include any rigging hardware, which means anglers can opt for a belly weighted weedless 6/08/0 hook for a snag free and weedless presentation. Another cool product releasing from Sunline is their new Night FC fluorocarbon line. This fluorocarbon line will be invisible to the fish underwater while illuminating above the water when a blacklight is shining on it giving anglers an easy way of tracking their line while fishing at night. Hit your local tackle shop and try these new, innovative products out! Written By Thomas Raines ke Bay Charter Fis hin apea s e g Ch

Fishing Forecast for July Potomac River The current river temperatures are in the upper 70s with some cooler water to be found in clear water. Plenty of fish are moving up shallow following baitfish and prowling the banks looking for a quick meal. As the month progresses, expect water temperatures to increase causing fish to eventually move back into deeper and cooler water. While the fish are still pushing into the shallows key areas will be vertical structures such as docks, piling cluster, and seawalls. Fishing in grass flats will also produce good numbers of fish well into the month as the water clarity improves. The best time to fish these shallow areas will be at high tide, the fish will follow the rising water in an attempt at finding a quick meal. Bass fishing should be fair until we experience a sharp rise in water temperature. Once this occurs, fish will be found on offshore structures such as bridge pilings, shipwrecks, and channel ledges adjacent to shallow water. Pan fish will not be hurt as much by the rise in temperature. The crappie, perch, and bluegill bite will remain hot in the backs of many creeks and bays throughout the month. Striped bass fisherman in the area looking for some freshwater luck will find good numbers of fish near current above Fletchers

Boathouse, the outflows of the tidal basin, and below the Occoquan reservoir dam. Catfish can be caught using cut bait on a slip sinker rig or fished under balloons when fish are suspended. Snakeheads on the river are remaining very active. The fish are very aggressive and a white frog or chatterbait will get the job done for most anglers in search of these tasty invasive fish that have made such a presence in the last few years. Overall, fishing this month on the river will leave many anglers very pleased with their day’s catch. With the inevitably hot weather approaching, bass fishing will begin to get tough but there is still plenty of time left before the big fish abandon their yearly shallow migration. Get out there and catch ‘em! Written By Thomas Raines

July Forecast for The Chesapeake Bay July offers a diverse fishery in the middle Chesapeake Bay for Spanish Mackerel, Red Drum, Croakers, Spot, and Perch. The Spanish Mackerel “Mac” is a fast swimming predator fish with a mouth full of teeth! Macs can be found and caught by trolling small spoons through schools of bay anchovies. If you see a school of anchovies on the top of the water you can bet there are some macs in the mix. Pay attention while you are fishing because often times macs will get airborne and jump 5 or 6 feet clear out of the water while they are feeding. Rigging for mackerel is simple. For the most effective rig, you’ll want to deploy #1, #2, & #3 planers with small 2-4 inch spoons. Your leader should be a minimum of 20 feet in length. Use 30# fluorocarbon with a small barrel swivel in the middle to keep it from twisting. Run your #3 planers short (20’-40’), #2 planers (40’-70’), and #1 planers (75’-125’). Adjust the lengths based upon the water depth. Troll your baits FAST at 5-7.5kts through the schools of anchovies. When trolling against the current, adjust your speed to the lower end (5-6kts) and when trolling with the current, you’ll want to speed it up (6-7.5kts). If you are trolling perpendicular to the current, start at the slower end and speed up until you determine what speed works best. Mackerel seem to prefer feeding on or near drop offs but they can also be found in shallow water along beaches. However, your best bet is to locate the schools of anchovies. If Red Drum “reds” are what you’re after, you’ll want to search the flats along channel edges for signs of them. Some things to look for are large oil slicks on the water, small black birds picking at the water, and a sweet smell in the air near the slicks. You can

catch reds by trolling big spoons or jig for them using 3oz jigs with big twister tails. My favorite baits are the skirted jigs by Hard Head Custom Baits. Reds are significantly stronger than a Striped Bass of equivalent size so do not underestimate their power and ability to hurt you once you’ve landed them! Yes they have teeth! Whether you are looking to catch some perch for the frying pan, Spot for live bait, or just a little bit of rod bending action, bottom fishing is a lot of fun! You’ll want to fish on oyster bars and hard bottom areas for these fish. To find these places, use your fish finder. When you are over a soft bottom, the bottom line on your screen will appear thin. When you find a hard bottom or an oyster bar, the bottom line on your screen will appear very thick and darker in color. If it shows 2 dark lines on the bottom it is an exceptionally hard bottom. Start by drifting over the area and if you catch a couple fish, drop a waypoint try anchoring. Sometimes the fish won’t bite while on anchor. Especially Perch. When anchoring do it QUIETLY! If your anchor drags it is because you either did not pay out enough anchor line, your anchor is under sized, or you do not have enough chain. In any event, you’ll likely have spooked all the fish so you will want to move on. Blood worms the best and most consistent bait for Spot, Croaker, and perch. If you are able to locate a school of croaker, you can catch them with squid, peeled shrimp, and soft crab. For bottom fishing tackle, you will want a medium/light - fast action rod with 14# braided line. Braided line will help you feel the bite better. Also, be sure to have plenty of weights (2, 3, & 4oz) and snelled flicker hooks (#6, #4, & #2).

How to Measure a Fish Size limits are generally based on the total length of a fish. The total length of a fish is the maximum length with the mouth closed and the tail pinched together measured from the snout to the tip of the tail. The best way to obtain this straight line measurement is to push the fish’s snout against a vertical surface with the mouth closed and with the fish lying along a tape measure and then pinch the tail fin closed to determine the total length. Fork length refers to the length from the snout of a fish to the end of the middle caudal fin rays. This is the measurement for determining the legal size of a shark. The girth of a fish is best measured with a fabric ruler. Measuring the girth is helpful in trying to determine if you have a possible record fish, which is determined by total weight. By using the total length and girth of a fish in inches you can get a rough estimate of the weight in pounds with this formula: ((Girth in inches x Girth in inches) x Length in inches) / 800 = Approximate weight in pounds

From The Bottom Of The Bay:

Fossilized Crabs By Rachel Dean

Even after winter settles in our region, watermen steer their workboats towards Maryland’s wild oyster grounds. These men and women know to avoid muddy bottoms unsuitable for oysters, and instead, they seek rock and shell deposits. Crews use oyster dredges to gather oysters. As the dredge is pulled behind the boat, oysters tumble into the chain bag. The bag is pulled up frequently to sort and measure the catch. But oysters are not the only thing to cross watermen’s sorting tables. Fossils are often found off the Calvert geologic formation in the Chesapeake Bay. During the last oyster season, the crew of the Roughwater caught five fossilized crabs. At first, these fossils resembled a rock. Afterall, the top shell of a crab is smooth and has no easily distinguishable ridges. But a quick flip revealed the partitioned body and recognizable apron that characterizes the crab as male or female. Because soft-bodied animals without a skeleton and teeth decay quickly, it is rare to find the fossilized remains of crabs. But there is no doubt these fossils are from the same species of crab found at crab houses throughout the Chesapeake Bay region.

HOW MANY

FALSE CASTS?

Veteran’s Program Announcing Our New

Y

ou know the visual image of fly casting. The line flows back and forth with beautiful loops in a cadence that flows like a willow in a breeze. It is an image that draws people into the sport, and I really enjoy watching it applied correctly. Needless false casting, however, can create all kinds of issues. What is the right amount of false casts? It depends. The short answer to the question is to use the minimum necessary to make the cast work. So, if you can make one back cast and then send the fly to the target, that is the best you could do. But that’s not always easy. A fixed distance cast with a generally short retrieve over and over lends itself to that type cast, as in working a bank with a bass bug every few feet or working a trout run over and over. However, if you are changing distances or changing directions, generally you will need to make a few false casts to pull it off. The general thought process is that three false casts will be enough to cover a change of distance, zeroing in on a target, changing direction or drying a fly. The pick up and back cast starts the series. Slipping line for a change-of-distance cast is done on the false casts. Sizing up the target and loop for the target-shot is done while false casting. Repositioning the rod on the back cast for the change of direction happens when we false cast. The delivery cast should be set up by the pick up and the first false cast. The importance of the false cast can’t be stressed enough, so just picking up the line and waving it in the air without specific thought behind the purpose is not a good idea. The more the line is waving in the air, the more things can go wrong. Giving some thought to the next sequence of casts before you start will really help your casting.

Our success with helping veterans to learn to publish their own localized fishing/ outdoor magazine leads us to believe that our franchise opportunities are a perfect fit for a wide variety of veteran talents and training. Now, with our special Veteran’s Program, owning a Coastal Angler or The Angler Magazine franchise has never been easier.

THE LONGEST FISH EVER IN MINNESOTA

T

wo Minneapolis anglers can now claim the longest fish ever caught on record in Minnesota. Darren Troseth and John Kimble pulled a huge, 78-inch-long lake sturgeon through a hole in the ice on the St. Croix River this winter. MDNR recently certified it as a new catch-and-release state record. Estimated to weigh about 120 pounds, the more than 6-foot-long monster is not only the longest lake sturgeon caught on record, it’s the longest fish - period. MDNR’s Shannon Fisher said the fish could be about 100 years old, which is not unusual for this long-lived and slow-growing species. It is, however, unusual for a sturgeon of this size to come from Minnesota waters, where the species had nearly vanished by the early 1900s. For decades, lake sturgeon have been protected in Minnesota and many other states. A rebounding population allowed the Minnesota to open the species for catch-and-release fishing in 2013. The IGFA world record lake sturgeon weighed 168 pounds. It was caught from Ontario, Canada’s Georgian Bay in 1982. A larger fish, which is recognized by Wisconsin as the largest lake sturgeon ever caught in the U.S., was caught out of the state’s Wolf River in 2012. That fish was 87.5 inches long and weighed 240 pounds. It was estimated to be 125 years old.

LAKE ERIE WALLEYE ACTION EXPECTED TO BE OUTSTANDING

B

ased on recent trends, fisheries managers are predicting a record year for walleye anglers on Lake Erie. If you’ve ever wanted to get in on the action, now is the time to go. According to the Ohio DNR, the summer months typically provide the best walleye fishing of the year, and this summer could surpass last summer’s record success for anglers. In 2018, walleye were harvested at the highest rates recorded in nearly 40 years. More than 40 percent of walleye trips produced a limit for anglers. On average, anglers caught and kept a walleye for every 75 minutes of fishing. “Walleye anglers can expect fishing that rivals a boom that began in 2006 and lasted several years following the exceptional 2003 hatch,” said Scott Hale, administrator of fisheries management for the Division of Wildlife. “The recent procession of good hatches points to an outstanding decade that has just begun.” Four excellent walleye hatches between 2014-2018 point to a bright fishing season for Lake Erie, the “Walleye Capital of the World.” The 2019 walleye population is estimated to be 45 million fish ages 2 and older, with a projection exceeding 120 million fish for 2020.

“If you have ever thought about going out fishing on Lake Erie, now is the time,” said Capt. Paul Pacholski, president of the Lake Erie Charter Boat Association. “With the recent walleye hatches we have had the past few years, fishing has been incredible.” Walleye anglers are mostly catching abundant 4- to 5-year-old fish that average 19 to 21 inches and are as large as 26 inches. Anglers should release sub-legal fish with as little handling as possible so they can contribute to the fishery in the future. The daily walleye limit is six fish with a 15-inch minimum length limit. Updated Lake Erie fishing reports are available at wildohio.gov or by calling 888-HOOKFISH (888466-5347). For more information, visit wildohio.gov.

Yamaha Goes Big With Their New 19-foot Center Console When Yamaha Boats entered the center console category in 2015 with their first gen 19-foot 190 FSH, skeptics questioned if Yamaha could compete in the segment in the same way the “Rev Your Heart” brand dominates the 19-foot, 21-foot, and 24-foot bowrider category. Just three years later, Yamaha clapped back by winning Boating Magazine’s coveted Boat of the Year honor with their 21-foot 210 FSH. For 2019, Yamaha upped the ante with a complete refresh of the 190 FSH Series. Yamaha’s 19’ center console boats return with an all-new deck and hull design that is 3 inches longer and 2 inches wider than previous year models. With the added space, Yamaha engineers increased storage capacity and improved overall functionality. From bow to stern, there is not another 19’ center console boat as spacious or more comfortable. Under the waterline, the longer, wider hull is designed for added comfort too, favoring characteristics that reduce bow rise when accelerating and hull packing when operating in choppy water conditions. Another significant improvement included on all Yamaha boats for 2019 is a new V-shaped reverse bucket that enhances handling when in reverse, a redesigned Articulating Keel that reduces drag, and a new compliment of corrosion resistance measures to protect the jet pump and surrounding driveline parts. The new V-Bucket works by diverting water thrust laterally (not down) to take advantage of the benefits of side thrust. The redesigned Articulating Keel is thinner and with tighter tolerances to reduce drag while maintaining all its low-speed handling benefits. And to increase corrosion resistance to the jet pump and surrounding driveline parts, a three-step process that combines Alumite, a ceramic coating, and expoxy paint has been added. Most Usable Deck Layout Ever in a 19’ Center Console Starting at the bow, the storage compartments are larger and open wider than

before. To help keep tackle and other essentials organized, Plano storage trays are integrated into the new portside mini-pod storage compartment, and on the starboard side, the mini pod opens into a huge storage area. These padded mini pods also serve as convenient ingress and egress points. The bow platform is wider than previous models, and the bow platform hatch is wider too, providing better access and more light for stowing or retrieving gear. The bench seat and front of the center console lifts up to reveal an extra deep, large storage area that can also serve as a changing room or head compartment, thanks to the curtain enclosure included on Deluxe and Sport models. The entryway to this compartment is redesigned to make ingress and egress easier. This compartment can also store equipment and recreational items and offers convenient access to the backside of the helm for easy service and installation of aftermarket marine electronics. On the sides of the center console are six vertical rod holders, three on each side. Four additional rod holders are located under the gunnels on the port and starboard sides. With the addition of four flush-mount rod holders on the deck, there are 14 rod holders across the boat. The Sport version adds four more rocket launchers on the T-top. The helm is thoughtfully designed with a simple-to-remove windshield for low profile storage, a stainless steel sports steering wheel, easy access to all boat control switches, a locking glove box and an open area to flush mount electronics such as a fishfinder, GPS unit, and other marine electronics. Also included is Yamaha’s 4.3” touchscreen Connext control system featuring a brand-new user interface in 2019, and conveniently-placed rocker switches for Yamaha’s No Wake Mode and Cruise Assist, along with bilge, horn and other vital functions.

FISH & FISHING

SINKER SENSE

MARK SOSIN

P

resentation holds the key to catching fish. That cardinal rule proves just as valid for critters that hunker down on the sea floor as it does for more glamorous denizens in the upper level of the water column. If a bait isn’t in the zone where the fish happen to be or if it doesn’t behave in a natural and realistic manner, it will be ignored. Sinkers are a vital aspect of fishing success. Their mission goes well beyond the task of simply dragging a bait to the bottom or some midpoint in the water column. View them as part of the total presentation package. That includes such factors as sink rate, whether it anchors a bait or allows it to drift, and as an aid in casting. If you’re going to troll, sinkers help to adjust the depth at which each bait or lure is moving through the water. With very few exceptions, select the lightest sinker that will carry your offering to the bottom or the desired depth. Don’t assume that if 1 ounce does the job, 2 ounces are better. Not only do heavier weights keep the bait or lure from looking like a tempting morsel, they make the hook-up process more difficult. Remember that when an unsuspecting fish inhales an offering, it must drag the sinker along before the hook will embed in its jaw. Line diameter plays a major role in determining the weight of the sinker you will need. Generally, the finer the diameter of the line you are using, the less weight you need to achieve the same results in a given situation. As an example, the bottom bouncer who insists on using 30-pound test line needs a heavier sinker than someone using 20-pound test. Sinker shape helps to determine sink rate. The fastest, freefalling sinkers have the weight concentrated at the bottom, tend to be very compact and are streamlined. It’s important to note, however, that fast-falling sinkers have a tendency to cause the

hook and tag end of the leader to wrap around the standing part during the drop. In most situations, it proves more effective if the sinker will drift across the bottom rather than anchor the rig in one place. If you’re trolling, sinker choice should include enough weight to keep the bait or lure at the preferred depth. No assortment of sinkers is complete without split shots, bullet weights, pinch-ons, and twist-ons. These can be added very easily to make minor adjustments to the weight of the primary sinker. Sinkers come in many different shapes, and each shape has a specific purpose. It’s important to choose a shape designed to do the job you expect. The right sinker for the task at hand will increase your catch rate significantly, and that’s the easiest way to turn an average day on the water into a memorable one.

Reduce Mortality Of Released Bycatch

s responsible anglers, we want to do everything we can to return bycatch safely. Anyone who’s fished bottoms deeper than 30 feet has probably experienced the “floating fish syndrome.” This is caused by barotrauma, an expansion of the fish’s air bladder as they are brought up from depth. Signs of barotrauma include eyes popping, stomach extending out of the mouth, intestines extending out of the anus and bloating. These fish will not be able to descend upon release and are subject to predation. Thanks to a NOAA grant, the South Carolina Wildlife Federation has partnered with the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council to develop an interactive online tutorial detailing fish-handling and release techniques

that give fish the best chance of survival. In 2018, anglers fishing waters of the Atlantic from North Carolina to Florida released more than 2 million red snapper. Even a 5 percent increase in survivorship would save 100,000 red snapper a year. All those surviving fish would remain in the stock. The South Atlantic Fisheries Management Council includes bycatch mortality as part of their population estimates that determine seasons and catch limits. Best fishing practices detailed in the tutorial are a great way of reducing mortality, which means there will be more fish in the water for future fishing opportunities. Take the online tutorial and enhance your future fishing opportunities at: https://safmc. net/bestpracticestutorial/story_ html5.html.

MONSTER BROWN CAUGHT ON WHITE RIVER

Y

ou don’t see a brown trout like this one every day. This massive and battle-scarred bruiser was caught and released by Paden Flippen on Arkansas’ White River below Bull Shoals Dam on June 14. The 36.7-pound monster was a fitting present for the angler, who celebrated his 24th birthday that day. The White River is well known for producing gigantic trout. This system of hatchery-supported tailwaters has the food sources and habitat for rainbow, brown, brook and even cutthroat trout to reach almost unbelievable sizes. Flippin guides for Cotter Trout Dock and said he and other guides had been tracking this big brown for more than a year. If he had decided to keep it for certification, Flippen’s big trout would have fallen just shy of the state record, which is held by a 40-pound, 4-ounce beast that was caught from the Little Red River back in 1992. That fish, caught by Rip Collins, was the world record up until 2013, when an angler in New Zealand caught a 42-pound, 1-ounce brown trout.

DEXTER WHITE HANDLE FILLET KNIFE


FLY FISHING

FE

few inches until it can deliver the fly ever so softly. Always carry extra spools of leader material to meet this problem. Once again, your leader length is often determined by the fishing conditions. If the wind is howling and you are having a difficult time rolling over your fly, shorten the leader. If conditions are glass-slick, the fish will be spooky. You will need a much longer cast, so lengthen your leader and reduce the size and weight of your fly.

THE BASIC SALTWATER LEADER: THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT The leader is the connection between fisherman and fish. If tied incorrectly, not only will it be difficult to cast, it will also be responsible for losing saltwater gamefish. I prefer a 9-foot leader when fishing saltwater, although there are occasions when a 10-foot leader is needed. A good leader can turn over the large, heavy flies used in saltwater fly fishing. I will often start my day with a longer leader, and reduce its length depending on the demands of weather conditions and efficiency in properly delivering the fly. The leader is a simple equation: 4x3x2. I have found this the preferred method to construct a solid saltwater leader: • 4 feet of 40-pound stiff mono; • 3 feet of 30-pound mono, and • 2 feet of 20-pound mono. This system works well with lighter tippets as well. If I need to add a lighter tippet, I shorten the heavy 40-pound butt section to keep the overall leader length 9 feet, adding the light tippet to the 20-pound test on the fly end of the leader. How the fly lands on the water is important. You want the fly to land as softly as a whisper. If, however, your leader is too long, a heavy fly will hit the water as loudly as a thrown rock. The noise will alert every fish in the vicinity. I usually solve this problem by shortening the leader and cutting off a

There are times when a shorter leader is needed. The short leader makes it easier to cast a heavy fly into the wind. I will often shorten leaders to fewer than 7 feet when dealing with very strong winds. It’s good to remember that shallow-water fish are less spooky under windy conditions. Therefore, they will often swim within close range of the angler without being spooked. I believe the wind and the distortion it creates on the water’s surface acts as a barrier to the world above the surface, making the fish feel more secure. I’ve witnessed this on many occasions when tarpon, redfish and permit swim within a rod’s length of me while the wind was blowing 20 knots.

BOJO FISHLIGHT

T

he BoJo Fishlight is no ordinary fishlight. The unique design feeds your fish by actually knocking bugs into the water… still alive! The unit has two fluorescent bulbs that attract bugs to the device. Once bugs come to the light, an electric motor with weed-eatertype cord blades knocks the bugs into the water where fish eat them all night long. The Bo-Jo Fishlight works great on fresh or saltwater, on ocean docks, large lakes and equally well—if not better—on small ponds. Basic fishing rules apply

here. Bugs come to the light; bugs get knocked in the water; baitfish feed on bugs; big fish feed on baitfish; you catch the big fish! The device mounts on a post, dock, pier or boat house and is simple to install. These durable dock lights also give you illumination to enjoy nighttime activities and cost less than a nickel a night to operate. This incredible device feeds fish for free and will actually pay for itself in the first year alone. Compare with the cost of expensive mechanical fish feeders that spread pellet feed, and you’ll save big money. Learn more at bo-jofishlight. com or call 478-951-1490.
