Travis Knight and Cory Simmons haven’t been fishing together for long, but they’ve known they’d make a great team on the water since their first outing.

They put their fishing skills on display last weekend at the annual Sebago Lake Anglers’ Association Open Water Togue Derby.

During the two-day event on Maine’s second largest lake, Knight took home the coveted first-place trophy, while Simmons caught the third-place fish.

Knight, of Livermore Falls, took first place with a 15.67-pound lake trout caught on Saturday afternoon. It measured 34 1/2 inches and earned him $500 for first place overall and $100 for Saturday’s largest fish.

Simmons, his capable Polish sidekick, registered a togue weighing 11.77 pounds, earning him $300.

“It was the first time my fishing partner and I had ever participated in the derby,” said Knight, who was out on Sebago for the first time this year.

They’ll need a bigger boat.

According to a stunning video of the incident, a group of high-school boys and their fathers were treated to a scene straight out of “Jaws” when a mako shark jumped from the ocean into their charter fishing boat.

“A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!” “Fortunately, no one on board was injured,” said Sea Ventures Charters, the owner of the Lady Anne fishing boat, in a Facebook post.

The families and crew were on a shark fishing expedition off the coast of Maine in August when the mako shark chomped on the bait.

It landed on the deck of the 38-foot boat after leaping out of the water to escape the fishing line.

District 5-Eveleth area

Fishing and bear hunting, according to CO Darrin Kittelson (International Falls #1), are the main focuses of work activities, with more people venturing into the woods. People are reminded to make sure their ATVs are properly registered.

Over the weekend, a special operation was carried out in collaboration with the US Fish and Wildlife Service and US Customs and Border Protection at the US Customs Port of Entry. Enforcement action was taken for illegal bear transportation, fish transportation issues, and a fish over-limit.

CO Curtis Simonson (International Falls #2) reports checking sturgeon anglers and working bear-hunting activity on the Rainy River.

CO John Slatinski IV (Ray) reports that bear hunters were very active earlier in the week, with some larger bears being harvested. Waterfowl hunters were contacted, and some reported success. Slatinski looked into reports of illegal trail use.

Approximately 35 gallons of chemicals, tires and other debris were discovered along a county roadway. In an incident where an individual was getting rid of a camper by cutting it up and burning it, a complaint was investigated and the responsible party was contacted. Angling and boating activity remains high, with anglers waiting for the fall bite to begin.

Fishing report: Drop-shotting for smallmouth bass pays off in Lake Erie

Sep 14, 2022

Salmon are beginning to appear in the lower Niagara River, steelhead is knocking on the door of Lake Erie tributaries, and there is plenty of action for a variety of species in our open Great Lakes.

Tributaries of Lake Erie

Smallmouth bass is beginning to grow in size in Lake Erie. Despite storm cells passing through late in the morning, Ron Morrison of Lockport chose crayfish as his bait while fishing with Capt. Jim Hanley of Sturgeon Point on Monday.

***

Morrison had a great day with bass while fishing in 30 to 35 feet of water with a drop-shot technique. Berkley Gulp minnows, flatworms, and Ned rigs were also used to catch fish.

***

The “football” season has begun. Hanley spent the day on the water with Angola’s Jeff Jarzynski, targeting walleyes in 95 feet of water off Cattaraugus Creek. Divers rigged with willow blade worm harnesses were used. According to Shub Stevens of Catt. Creek Bait and Tackle in Irving, the perch bite has improved in 60 to 75 feet of water west of Cattaraugus Creek.

***

Golden shiners are doing the job. Walleye activity has slowed, and crews are working hard to reach their limit. Stickbaits and spoons worked well in 75 to 95 feet of water. Right now, bass fishing is very popular. Stevens recommends 20 to 35 feet of water with live crayfish. Rob Oram of Angola won the Southtowns Walleye One-Day Contest on Saturday with a 6.30-pound fish caught west of Barcelona.

***

He discovered a school of fish in 85 feet of water west of his starting point after some searching. He caught the winning fish with a Yaleye stick bait on the lead core line. He didn’t think it was big enough to win and nearly didn’t weigh in.

***

When he made up his mind, he dashed to the weigh-in at Southtowns Walleye in Hamburg and made the cutoff with just nine minutes to spare to take first place and $658. Bill Trembeth of Eden finished second with a 5.73-pounder, followed by Jim Kuwik of West Seneca with 5.51 pounds, Ron Casper of Youngstown with 5.49 pounds, and Brigget Cogland of Niagara Falls with 5.48 pounds.

According to Oram, the walleyes have been on the move recently. It’s that time of year when some fish begin to migrate west. They are unlikely to be found where you find them today.

Coho sports fishing is restricted

To protect coho salmon returns and ensure future sport fishing opportunities, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) has reduced the bag and possession limit on coho salmon on the Copper River Highway from three to two fish per day, and the use of bait has been prohibited.

The restrictions were announced on September 7 and will go into effect on Friday, September 9 at 12:01 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, December 31

The Copper River Highway streams include all freshwater drainages crossed by the highway between the Eyak River and the Million Dollar Bridge, as well as Clear Creek at Mile 42 downstream of the Carbon Mountain Road Bridge.

“Water levels and fishing conditions in Copper River Highway streams have been poor in recent weeks.” Angler catches of coho salmon have remained low since high-water conditions subsided. Furthermore, low numbers of coho salmon were observed during an aerial survey flown on September 6th, and we need to reduce the sport harvest to help ensure escapement for future coho salmon returns in the Copper River Delta,” said Jay Baumer, sport fish area management biologist.

So, uh, you could say Huntsville, uh, lured a new sport to the Rocket City and made a big catch.

Kayak Bass Fishing is exactly what it sounds like: competitive fishing from kayaks. And Kayak Bass Fishing – “Or KBF as everyone refers to it, like the NFL,” according to founder Chad Hoover – is locating its national headquarters in Huntsville at Ditto Landing on the Tennessee River.

According to the Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau, KBF, which is currently based in Hendersonville, Tenn., near Nashville, will hold its national championship in Huntsville in 2023, 2025, and 2031, as well as an annual tournament, with an estimated economic impact of $16 million over the next ten years. In fact, the first KBF tournament in Huntsville will take place in November.

It also helps to increase visitors to Ditto Landing, and the KBF headquarters will be incorporated into the park’s evolving master plan. Kayak bass fishing, according to Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle, is the “new ‘it’ sport for the freshwater enthusiast.”

“I want to turn Huntsville into Fishville,” said Hoover.

Amberjack Study on Tap for South Atlantic And Gulf Of Mexico

The Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium will conduct research to estimate the population of greater amberjacks in US waters.

A large team of renowned marine scientists will conduct extensive research on one of the most popular and tough-fighting deep-water gamefish along the Southeast and Gulf Coasts.

Geneticists, modelers, statisticians, ecologists, and oceanographers from the Atlantic and Gulf coast regions make up the research team. Many of the project researchers have worked together for more than 20 years, according to project leader Sean Powers, chair of the Marine Sciences Department at the University of South Alabama and a senior marine scientist with Dauphin Island Sea Lab.

Many team members were also involved in the Great Red Snapper Count, a recent and highly regarded study conducted by Gulf Coast States that documented the undercounted and abundant abundance of red snapper in US Gulf waters.

In 2020, Congress appropriated funds for Sea Grant to implement an independent research program to support the Greater Amberjack stock assessment process.

On the Water: Few anglers fishing due to unsettled weather

Unpredictable weather kept many anglers in port for much of the week, making for a slow week on the water.

Between Galt and Regla islands, as well as between Roosevelt Channel and Buck Key, spotted seatrout up to 19 inches were caught around sand holes and over grass flats. While casting Mirrolure Provoker and Berkley Gulp Jerk Baits, as well as small pinfish, grunts, and shrimp under popping corks, trout, ladyfish, and jack crevalle, were caught.

Anglers fished protected shorelines for mangrove snapper up to 14 inches. Foster’s Point on Captiva, Pejuan Bay at Cayo Costa State Park, and Matlacha around Indian Fields and Smokehouse Bay were all mentioned. The majority of them were caught on shrimp, small pilchards, pinfish, and cut sardines.

Anglers fished in unsettled and, at times, nasty weather as the weekend approached. The conditions weren’t ideal, but anglers caught schooling redfish ranging in size from 28 to 33 inches, as well as snook up to 40 inches. The majority of redfish were caught along shorelines and bar drop-offs during the strong incoming tide, while snook was caught around the barrier islands on the western side of Pine Island Sound and Charlotte Harbor.

Fishing report: The last report of the year … until we have ice

Sep 14, 2022

With many outdoor enthusiasts focusing on hunting and several marinas closing for the season, it appears that this week’s fishing report will be the last of the season.

We do, however, intend to return to the saddle when the ice fishing season arrives. I’ve already spoken with a number of tackle shops throughout the state who have expressed an interest in assisting with this.

So stay tuned and come back when the lakes start to freeze. Until then, prepare your streamers and October caddis because fall fishing is about to begin.

Best selections
Gallatin River — The Canyon is still excellent for fishing. Hoppers are almost gone, but they won’t be gone for good until we get a few night-time freezes. Your top bug will continue to use foam attractors, chubbies, and hoppers. Successful anglers have been using small flashy nymphs, Perdigons, hare’s ears, prince nymphs, and stoneflies behind that. Fish a chubby up top and an x-caddis or missing-link caddis as your dropper if you want to go dry-or-die. With the colder weather approaching, keep an eye out for some fall Baetis.
