A recent earthquake in California has shaken up a large group of Humboldt squid and sent them straight in to the beaches of La Jolla. Local residents were shocked and say they’ve never seen anything like this before. Check out the video!
This isn’t the first time we’ve covered the Humboldt squid, and when not confused by whatever occurred underwater during the quake they can even be quite aggressive and dangerous. In Mexico they refer to them as diablo rojo.
A Zander is a European variant of our Walleye, and apparently some can be extremely territorial, to the point of attacking swimmers. With six attacks in a single weekend, two of the swimmers were sent to the hospital with gashes over four inches long, the local Swiss police department was forced to take action. The police first tried to catch the fish with a net, which failed, so a hitman scuba diver was sent in to ice pick harpoon the fish. I’m not sure how he know which fish was the attacker, but while under he harpooned a 27″ Zander weighing over 17 pounds! What a whopper! The police cooked the fish and served it to local tourists for their troubles.
“It is quite unusual for zanders to bite humans”, Croci said, adding he suspected the fish was suffering from a hormonal imbalance which could be responsible for its aggression.

This exotic fish may be native to southeast asia, but would you believe there’s one place in the United States where you can catch one right along side a largemouth bass. While they’re most commonly found here in aquariums many misinformed owners don’t realize they can grow up to 40″ [...]

My XTRATUF II boots have been the footwear of choice for winter fishing this year and they’ve been fantastic on every outing. I’m sad that they’ll be put away in the next few weeks as summer approaches, but I’m very happy knowing they’re ready and waiting for next winter. When [...]
