Lunch Is Served

We all have our preferred fishing techniques, favourite lures or secret fishing spots. Sometimes you're rewarded with a catch, other times the enjoyment of fishing is satisfying enough.

This Green Heron likes to keep it basic, bread. And after about 1 minute, lunch is served.

Unconventional Whale Shark Feeding

On a recent expedition to Indonesia's Cendrawasih Bay, Conservation International's Mark Erdmann learned how Whale Sharks congregate around bagan (lift net) fishing platforms to eat the small baitfish that the fishers are targeting. These gentle giants eat between 0.5% and 3% of their body weight each meal and have learnt to take advantage of the fishers hard work by "sucking" fish from their nets.

We've all had the "one that got away", well how about the "one that didn't"...

Better known as "Roughtail Stingray" (not a "Clark's Fingerskate" or a "Hookskate" as first thought), a Florida fisherman who hooked the 800-pound deep sea beast in the waters off Miami Beach says the mysterious fish was like “a dinosaur.”

Rest assured, this amazing stingray has released safely.

Tarpon and Silversides, Grand Cayman

This picture was taken at Eden Rock, Grand Cayman. For just a short time every year these silversides swarm caves and swim-throughs at Cayman's dive sites. The picture was taken late afternoon just as the sun was going down. Mike was hiding behind the silversides, low in the rocks. As the tarpon swam through the silversides, they eventually saw him and turned away. Just like you see in the picture.

Have you hooked a Tarpon?
We'd love to hear from you. Simply send a message to +Fishing+ along with some details of the report, pictures or video and we'll share it with the +Fishing+ community.

544kg (1,200 pound) Black Marlin, Cairns, Australia.

A new satellite-tagged record has been set in Australian waters with a 544kg (1,200 pound) Black Marlin caught and released off Cairns.
The record Marlin was tagged late Friday (GMT+10) and notched up to first-time marlin angler New Zealand tourist Douglas Perry, 66.

The official weight record for a Black Marlin is still held by Alfred C. Glassell Jr who landed a 707kg (1560 pound) Black Marlin in 1953 (Alfred C. Glassell Jr. - IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame).

That's an astonishingly big fish.  Glad to hear you used tagging & releasing.  We wouldn't know these black beauties existed if it wasn;t for you big game guys. Well done and thanks for sharing the photo.

Bellarine Peninsula

Henry Jankowski 2, with his first billfish, a 37 cm gar from the Swan Bay Jetty.

On Friday evening, Warren Jankowski – along with his Dad Zbig and his two and a half year old son Henry – tried their luck from the Swan Bay jetty hoping to catch a few garfish, but to no avail.

Not at first anyway; but just as they packed up and the lad was about to pull in his line for the last time their luck changed when young Henry hooked a beauty. Once on the deck it greeted the ruler for a verdict of 37 cm: Not bad at all.

Frilled Shark (Chlamydoselachus Anguineus)

The Frilled Shark is a unique species of shark that's found over the outer continental shelf and upper continental slope, it has been caught as deep as 1,570 m (5,150 ft), whereas in Suruga Bay, Japan it is most common at depths of 50–200 m (160–660 ft). Exhibiting several "primitive" features, the frilled shark has often been termed a "living fossil".
The Frilled Shark reaches a length of 2 m (6.6 ft) and has a dark brown, eel-like body with the dorsal, pelvic, and anal fins placed far back. Its common name comes from the frilly or fringed appearance of the gill slits, of which there are six pairs with the first pair meeting across the throat.

What's the strangest marine animal you've ever caught or seen?
