As soon as the month of February arrives, thoughts turn to longer, warmer days and the beginning of spring fishing. On March 19 at 2 p.m., the Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area visitor center will host a free session designed to help anglers get ready for the peak of the fishing season.
Four of the best fisherman from Beaver Lake will be participating in a roundtable discussion. Each one is a top fisherman when it comes to catching the species they specialize in. Beaver Lake is a great place to capture crappie, black bass, walleye, and striped bass, and they will share their knowledge on how to do it.
Each will give a brief presentation on their experiences catching these species, and then questions from the audience will be welcome.
Payton and Tiffany Usrey, locals of Springdale, will be there to impart some of their wisdom on the art of crappie fishing. Nick Frakes of Rogers, a competition bass angler, will offer tips on catching black bass. Jon Conklin, a fishing instructor from Goshen, will demonstrate how to catch walleye and striper at Beaver.
Crappie fishing is a year-round pastime for the Usreys, who is an expert duo come winter, summer, or any other season. They catch crappie limits with jigs, crankbaits, and spider setups depending on the season.

WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) – The commercial fishing sector is focusing on two issues: sustainable fishing and attracting more women to the profession.
Currently, research shows that women account for only about 9% of commercial fishing in the United States. As a result, one female fisherman is attempting to set a good example by building her business on sustainable fishing.
“I like the soul connection to Mother Nature and learning about what she naturally provides,” Ana Shellem, owner of Shell’em Seafood Company, stated. “I really adore discovering the gorgeous shellfish that she’s already made out here in the wild.”
Ana Shellem lives in the marsh in Wilmington, North Carolina. She comes out here every week to collect shellfish.
“I typically pick clams, oysters, mussels, and snow crabs,” Shellem explained. “I admire those who farm but I can’t farm ’cause I would lose the connection with Mother Nature. If I farmed, I would be in charge and she would not be, and with me, everything is always under her control. And I enjoy it because it’s taught me a lot about myself and how to relax.”
Shellem is a one-woman fishery focused on sustainable fishing and supplying tiny local restaurants in her neighborhood. Only filling the precise quantity ordered by her ten restaurants.

The acting head of Nova Scotia Fisheries and Aquaculture Loan Board says seafood exports and retirees are luring new fishermen.
On Wednesday, Bob Verge appeared before the legislature’s public accounts committee to review the most current reports from the fisheries and farm loan boards.
According to deputy fisheries minister April Howe, Nova Scotia will export $2.5 billion in seafood in 2021, a 21% increase from five years ago. Figures from the lending board reveal how many new people are attempting to snag a piece of the seawater-soaked pie.
In the fiscal year 2021-22, the fisheries loan board approved 38% of applications for new entrants.

The Ghana Tuna Association (GTA) wants the government to provide cheaper fuel to fishing vessels.
GTA President Frank Aihoon told Ghana News Agency in Tema that tuna vessels needed help due to high running costs.
Mr. Aihoon stated that the fuel should be made a little cheaper for them, as it is in other countries, pointing out that whereas Senegal sells fuel for $800 per metric ton to vessels, those in Ghana pay over $1,200, which he considers excessive.
He noted that, in addition to other expenses, the vessels, particularly tuna vessels, required a lot of gasoline to travel about while fishing.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Edhy Prabowo, Indonesia’s fisheries minister, was tasked with safeguarding one of his country’s most valuable resources: baby lobsters as small as the tip of a finger.
The waters around the country’s many islands and archipelagos used to be teeming with lobster. However, overfishing in recent decades has depleted the crab population to the point where fishermen are now catching hatchlings. They gathered them up by the thousands and delivered them to Vietnamese lobster farms, where the babies are reared to adulthood and largely sold to Chinese merchants to supply China’s massive demand for seafood.
Concerned that such collection was causing harm to lobster populations, Indonesia’s fishing ministry banned the export of the tiny crustaceans in 2016. Prabowo revoked the prohibition shortly after gaining office. Court documents show that a month later, in June 2020, the minister accepted a $77,000 payment from a seafood supplier in exchange for granting the hatchlings a permit to sell them abroad.

To collect funds for its community fishing outings, the Oceanside Senior Anglers conducted a spaghetti and meatball fundraiser picnic luncheon at Martin Luther King Jr. Park recently.
Every summer, members of the fishing club volunteer to accompany over 100 local youngsters, scouts, and military personnel on free fishing trips funded by the club. The group mostly concentrates on deep sea fishing, but it also offers some social lake and surf fishing events, as well as monthly social picnics.
To support its charity efforts, the Oceanside Senior Anglers Foundation was established as a non-profit organization. Fishing equipment for Scout Camps, and free fishing trips for schoolchildren, wounded warriors, and other military people are among the activities.
The club meets the first Tuesday of each month at 9 a.m. at the El Corazon Senior Center in Oceanside. Visitors are welcome. Members of the Oceanside Senior Anglers are pictured serving lunch. Go to osanglers.org.
