Why did the fish cross the road? Probably because of a flood. Help that poor bugger!
The Australian Museum has recently picked up another rare Goblin Shark which was caught several hundred metres deep by a commercial fisherman just off the coast of New South Wales between Sydney and Eden. What makes this particular fish look so weird is it’s bizarre ‘alien-like’ jaw mechanism, the scientific name of the Goblin Shark is Mitsukurina owstoni.
This crazy guy doesn’t mess around, some real man vs nature stuff. He hooks a huge fish with only some line and a hook, he then pulls the line in with his hands and wrestles this beautiful fish up out of the water.
This wels catfish is crazy big, it weighs in at a ridiculous 127kg (19st). Caught recently on the Po Delta in northern Italy, the guy looks pretty happy with his catch.
It’s been a bit cold for my liking, but if you fancy carp fishing in sub zero temperatures Ian Lewis shows you the best methods to get those lines under the iced lakes. Ian catches a few nice carp and shows us how it’s done from an urban lake on a cold day in late January.
These guys are sea fishing from the back of a boat when the small shark they’ve hooked gets attacked and eaten by a much bigger shark. The speed and power from the bigger shark is intense, you wouldn’t want to be it’s next target.
Trakker’s Jake Wildbore talks us through the new Tempest Air Bivvy. Ideal for all those anglers who like to stay light on their feet.
