In addition to the direct benefits to fish listed by That Idiot, streamside vegetation provides some crucial indirect benefits. One indirect benefit is falling leaves. The leaves of streamside vegetation fall into the water and decay. Decaying leaves feed benthic macroinvertebrates. These include aquatic worms, snails, clams, crayfish, and the aquatic ...

Super-glue is not water resistant. Better use epoxy. From this page : Actually, super glues are not waterproof, at best they can be said to be water-resistant and will survive the occasional splash or brief soak in water and still retain its bonding properties. This is chiefly due to the fact that, the bond joint in a super glue will weaken and ...

Here are a few sources I found, in order from most user-friendly to most technical. iNaturalist has data about where fish were actually observed. Anyone can post geo-located pictures of organisms they've observed and get help identifying them. They currently have 2,475 observations of fish in New York state, which unfortunately is a little sparse. You can ...

Yes it's possible As long as you follow all the rules. Below I've included the national rules. On that page you'll find links for local byelaws that apply in each region of the country, in your case that's Yorkshire and North East and it is significantly more restrictive than the national regulations. You must also follow any local regulations that apply to ...

That's an Inshore Lizardfish. The coloring and range are right and so is the description of the head and the teeth. It looks like they are edible but not deliberately caught by most people.

I was talking to the original owner, he thinks the guide hole must have spun. I used a lighter to heat up the glue and removed it. I will be gluing it back on later.

Lack of vegetation along the banks will have a number of effects, each of which can affect fish populations. Vegetation will shade the water. This will reduce water temperatures which is typically good for fish. The shade can also provide cover for fish in the stream and give them a greater sense of security. Vegetation along the banks will affect what ...

which is the best moment in order not to endanger the species? Pacific salmon only spawn once in their life. At the point when they have spawned they are generally not considered eatable. There is no moment to catch them and "not to endanger the species" Salmon change color to attract a spawning mate. Pacific salmon use all their energy for returning to ...

For smaller fishes, usually, one can easily remove the hook by hand, but when the fish is bigger, the pliers are a great help. I have been using pliers for quite some time now and they do the work. I have heard of people using disgorgers but I haven't tried them yet, as the only time I bought some, they arrived broken in half.

Another tested bait with very good results is fresh chicken breast with garlic powder. Also, in my opinion Sargo become more active when sea is dome & rough , weather is dull and takes air mostly in rock bottom. Lastly, use circle hooks to avoid hooks break from Sargo strong & sharp teeth.

I'm a Canuck. My father in law is German and lives there. Whenever he speaks to my wife, he has her tell me Petri Heil, knowing we both fish. Neither of us speak the other's language though I have picked-up on a few, ahem, choice words here and there. The common greeting here is "Tight Lines", the meaning should obvious. Tight lines meaning "fish on" or, I ...

I am not an knot expert. What I do know is floro-carbon lines does not handle excessive heat well. In that sense, if you did not wet/lube your line well during the process, your line may get overheated and damaged/warped when you tightening them fast. In addition, fluorocarbon lines don’t dissipate heat nearly as well as monofilament, which means you’ll ...

In the US, get a fishing license, it should come with a book that describes the kind of fish you are allowed to catch and the ones that must be released. It will have fairly comprehensive listing of which fish are in which bodies of water. It should include good quality illustrations of the fish you might encounter and how to tell them apart from similar ...

I can't speak for NY, but in TN we have a government produced document (PDF) that lists which species are present in the state and where they might be found as a generality. I don't know if there is any publicly available mappable data, but I would be willing to bet that the local wild-life resources agency will have fairly detailed data for fish stock ...

For extremely similar purposes here in Florida I use a 7 ft. medium heavy rod with a spinning reel that can handle 12-30lb test line and lure weights in the 1/2 to 2oz range. Use the same rods/reels when I go for catfish in my local rivers as well.

Jigs - what you have on the left - can be bounced off the bottom, or suspended beneath a float (typically on a slip line with a stop of some type). From what I understand about ice fishing, they can even be held relatively steady at a fixed depth/point. Spinners - lots of variations on this theme, what you have in the middle is an in-line spinner. Cast it ...

What you have is two jigs and a spinner (on the right). The basic idea is that you cast them out and then reel them back in and the fish think they are small fish swimming by and try and eat them. You don't want to pull them in a straight line, rather pull in a more random fashion with small jerks and tugs in different directions. The spinner is offset for ...

It depends on your lure/bait, if you have. Fishing is also a lot about luck. Right fish, right lure/bait, you could get one.

Another solution is to add salt and leave them to absorb as much as they can for 3-4 hours. Then, store in the fridge. Following this procedure, the shrimps become more touch, and it is difficult for a fish to remove from the hook easily.
