The Fish Gauntlet…

Have you ever been curious as to how fish can get past a dam when it comes to spawning season?

Well, the folks at the Gadmerwasser Kraftwerke Oberhasli AG dam in Switzerland were.

They put cameras throughout this entire “Fish Gauntlet” to see just how many fish are coming through the complicated labyrinth of things a fish has to get through in the dam.

One thing is for sure… only the strong survive and get past this damn.

Finally!

The news reports on something positive for a change…

I have pretty much given up on watching any and all news due to all the negativity and the never-ending presidential election circus, but this video gives me hope.

I take that back, Chasten Whitfield gives me hope.

It’s pretty awesome to see this kind of maturity, awareness, and selflessness in someone of this age (or any age for that matter).

And the fact that Chasten is changing lives through fishing makes it that much better.

If you want to make America great again, girls like Chasten should be our role model.

Keep up the great work, Chasten!

Can’t wait to see all of the impact you make over the years to come.

Here is another video of Chasten making the news last year.

Awesome sauce!

This Is What Feeding Redfish On The Back Of A Ray Looks Like From Above!

Have you heard of redfish following around stingrays to eat up the shrimp, crabs, and bait fish that the ray stirs up?

Well, now you can see what it looks like from up above.

Our friend Sam Root captured this cool drone footage the other day while doing some filming in Florida.

It is pretty clear that there are two redfish in hunt mode, but what is that third fish in the top of the screen?

Pompano? Jack?

Let us know what fish you think it is in the comments.

Enjoy.

Fishing Couple Catch Back-To-Back “Spotless Redfish” On Video!

Is there such thing as an entire school of redfish without spots?

Makes you wonder after Capt. Jimmy Nelson (from Extreme Fishing Adventures) and Luiza Barros (from Fishing With Luiza) catch back-to-back redfish without spots in the exact same area.

Jimmy and Luiza were fishing in the Crystal River, FL area (doing some filming) when they caught these two spotless reds in a matter of a few minutes from each other.

Amazing!

Capt. Jimmy + Luiza = Redfish Strong!

Dolphin Launches A Jack 13 Times In A Row Captured On Film!

Ruthless!

Wait til’ you see this dolphin launch a jack 13 times before finally finishing him off.

Luke and I were down at the end of Davis Island in Tampa yesterday filming some new footage for our online redfish course and we saw this massive school of jack tearing up the bait fish.

Not more than a couple of minutes later, a handful of dolphin came in to feed on the jacks.

We grabbed our other camera (the nice one with the professional lavalier mic was hooked into the tripod) and followed the feeding frenzy around the point.

And all of a sudden I saw a dolphin with a jack crevalle in his mouth (see the screenshot from the video below).

And then a few seconds later, the dolphin was throwing around the jack like a football!

I can’t wait for you to see the monster toss at the 1:15 mark.

What a pass!

You’ve Got To See This Cobia (And Shark) Honey Hole!

Holy Cobia and Bull Shark Honey Hole!

Wait until you see the wild video below!

Our friend Joey Antonelli and his crew have found the pot of cobia gold off the east coast of Florida.

Of course, that also means they have to fend off and shoot in between sharks while they go after their catch.

Just check out how many cobia are within reach of his spear!

Now before you comment that they took too many cobia, there were 9 divers in this video and these guys never take more than their limit.

Well done gents, and great job on the music selection. I was laughing during the transition.

Have you ever seen this many cobia all in one place?

The Truth About Public Lands Transfer. A Must Watch For All Outdoor Lovers

What comes to mind when you hear “Public Lands Transfer”?

For many of us, it probably goes in one ear and out the other with all of the other noise out there in the news…

But this is a serious deal that could negatively impact your kids, grandkids, great-grandkids, and every generation after that.

Why?

Because the word that should come to mind when you hear public lands transfer is “STEALING”.

Sounds tough, but that really is what happens during a public lands transfer.

You see, the public lands in America belong to all of us.

You, me, our neighbors, everyone.

Do you know how much land we own?

640,000,000 acres!

And most of them are wide open for us to explore, hunt, fish, camp, and enjoy with family and friends.

But when a public lands transfer takes place (either from a state transfer or selling directly to a private group), we lose our rights to use the land how we like.

Here is why you should care:

  • When a state takes over public lands, they have the right to tell you that you can no longer fish, hunt, or camp on the land
  • But even worse, when states get in financial trouble (which the vast majority of them are in currently), one of the first things they sell is their land… and when it sells to a private owner, not only can you not hunt or fish on that land that used to be yours, you can’t even step foot on it
  • The National Parks and federal lands employ 6.1 Americans currently. If this land is sold, the states are not required to keep these jobs in place

Help spread the word and educate your friends and family on why they should not support public lands transfers.

Great job Trout Unlimited and Sportsmen’s Access for putting out these videos.

Note: There are two videos below on this subject of public lands transfer.

Watch and share.

Tarpon Team Up And Chase Away Shark Captured On Drone Camera!

I guess sometimes even tarpon get fed up with the bully of the sea…

In what could be the first ever footage of tarpon clearly chasing away a shark, this is pretty awesome to see.

Watch as these tarpon work together like a pack of wolves or dogs to scare off an intruder.

And keep your eye on the last tarpon that even goes right down to shark by himself for one last prod.

Wild stuff!

Lesson learned: Don’t mess with tarpon when they are daisy chaining…

Great job by our friend Sam Root of filming this footage with his drone.

Enjoy.
