For those of you that haven’t been checking back regularly to see how the galleries are progressing, all of our photos from 2005 trip to Little Vermilion Lake are now online, including the photos from our road trip. Im also happy to annouce that we will be heading back to Sportsmans Lodge at Little Vermilion Lake again this year.
Hot on the re-release of our galleries I’ve just updated them with 2 more days at our fly-in trip to Little Vermilion Lake and Sportsmans Lodge. Day two was our first day to freely roam around the lake and cast everywhere we pleased and start building a pattern for monster pike. On day three Clive made a quick start to the day by landing the largest fish of our voyage in the early afternoon. There’s still three more days to go and at least one more gallery for road trip photos including a few shore fishing stops along the way.
The greatest fishing gallery on the internet has finally made its return. We’re still in the process of getting everything perfect but there’s no reason not to show off some of the amazing photos we’ve seeded it with. Because Clive and I will be heading back to Sportsmans Lodge on Little Vermilion Lake in northern Ontario, and there was a mysterious lack of images and posts from that time period (probably from when we first moved to wordpress), I’ve uploaded images from our flight and first day there.
Expect more soon, so check back often!
Scientists and divers have videotaped this rare Frilled Shark, sometimes referred to as a “living fossil” because it has evolved very little since the prehistoric era. Frilled Sharks normally live in extremely deep water exceeding depths of 2,000 feet of water, so the fact that this one was out of his habitat already speaks poorly to its health. Alerted by local fishermen the Awashima Marine Park in Shizuoka, Japan scientists and divers were dispatched to the area where they captured the 1.6 meter long (5 feet). The shark was moved in to a holding tank for observation where later it died.
“We believe moving pictures of a live specimen are extremely rare,” said an official at the park. “They live between 1,968 and 3,280 feet (600 and 1,000 meters) under the water, which is deeper than humans can go.”
“We think it may have come close to the surface because it was sick, or else it was weakened because it was in shallow waters,” the official said.
