HUGE Heavy Duty Treble Hook BURIED in my Hand!
Darcizzle Offshore


Published on Oct 2, 2018
In this Florida fishing video, I hooked myself while fishing! I hook myself in the hand while removing a barracuda from the lure. This was a rookie mistake on my part and I should have been way more careful handling the fish. Using the braided line hook removal technique, we show you how to remove a fish hook. No hospital visit! The best part about fishing is you just never really know what to expect and today I experienced one of those instances.

How to Catch Crab from a Jetty - Oregon Crabbing
PK Yi


Published on Sep 29, 2018
This is a video about How to Catch Crabs from a jetty. The best time to go crabbing is from August until December in Oregon. You do need a shellfish license to catch these crabs. I use chicken for bait, but you can use fish carcass as well.

I'm using a crab hawk, which is a folding trap that has a small mesh (note that this trap can also use to catch blue crabs). There are many ways to harvest these crabs from shore, and this method is one of the most fun way of doing it.
no, no, no bud. That ain't how they do it. I forget which jetty it was but I was getting the crab tickles on the pole while swatting the rock coons away from my bait and these two guys came out and launched their pyramid sinkers into the surf. It wasn't long before they both wadded up what looked like 50lb red mono with the bait inside and flung that shit out. Seems the crabs get tangled up in the mono. A few went into the rocks and a few never broke water but quite a few went into their bucket. Damnest thing I ever saw. Oh and I left before dark but threw my bait to the fishes. Damm coons on that jetty had no fear, like at all.

October 4, 2018 New Jersey/Delaware Bay Fishing Report with Jim Hutchinson, Jr.
The Fisherman Magazine


Published on Oct 4, 2018
Weekly fishing reports for NJ, DE Bay region at http://www.thefisherman.com/index.cfm...

Bait is on the move out front during this first week of October, even has buggy riders are slow to race the beaches with all the sun worshippers still out and about, sunning themselves in the prolonged summer weather. Ocean water temps are in the 70’s keeping many summer visitors (think triggerfish, sheepshead) in tight; false albacore too have been popping up along the Sandy Hook surf with the “run and gun” charter fleet chasing down speedsters as well.

Striped bass action is on the uptick in northern waters with the Raritan Bay complex also producing a few good bluefish, a weakfish or too and plenty of porgies. Most of the better striper fishing in Central/South Jersey has been in back along the sedges and sod banks at high water. Those putting in their time on the front beaches are being rewarded with a few striped bass, primarily smaller fish but excellent sport for those who scale down and enjoy the fight. Winds are forecast to turn E/NE with 20- to 25-knot gusts Friday into Saturday, which very well could put the fish at your feet this weekend.

While Delawareans continue to enjoy all aspects of bottom fishing, Garden Staters get their black sea bass back again on Monday, October 8; should be a great week of humpbacks, so be sure to lock in your boat of choice before the weekend is out!

October 4, 2018 Long Island Metro Fishing Report with Fred Golofaro
The Fisherman Magazine


Published on Oct 4, 2018
Weekly reports for Long Island and Metro New York at http://www.thefisherman.com/index.cfm...

Fluke fishing ended on a high note Sunday, with a surprising number of quality fish caught inside bays and inlets, including a 12.38 pounder by Peter Cilento in Moriches Bay, despite the calendar. While fluke are off the menu, we do have the fall blackfish season to look forward to, although warm water temperatures are likely to get the fishing off to a slow start. I’ve had reports of guys keeping blackfish already, thinking that the season opened on October 1, when in fact it doesn’t open until October 11th in the Sound and October 15 around the rest of the Island. It ends December 9 in the Sound and runs through December 22 everywhere else. Bag limits also differ, with 3 fish in the Sound and 4 fish for the rest of the waters in the NY Marine District. The size limit is 16 inches in all waters.

Until blackfishing kicks into gear, sea bass and porgies will get most of the attention from sinker bouncers, loads of false albacore will keep the light tackle crowd occupied, and there are signs striped bass action is starting to build.

This weeks video fishing forecast is now like at the fisherman.com http://www.thefisherman.com/index.cfm...

October 4, 2018 New England Fishing Report with Toby Lapinski
The Fisherman Magazine


Published on Oct 4, 2018
Be sure to follow the weekly fishing reports across New England at http://www.thefisherman.com/index.cfm....
This week I am coming to you from Long Island Sound, specifically The Race, where I am out here diamond jigging for bluefish, and this is where I’ll begin things today. There has finally been some consistent action on blues in the Sound. While I have been primarily using diamond jigs, bucktail jigs have also been taking their fair share of both bass and blues. Fish have been ranging from about 5 pounds on the low end to legit high teens, presenting a perfect opportunity to grab a spot on the Dream Boat Challenge leader board as we still have 5 of the available 10 spots open.

This same area as I am working today has had some good shots of albies with the best action taking place between the Connecticut and Thames Rivers, but fish have been landed as far west as the Norwalk Islands. The fish can be found everywhere and nowhere at any given time, with some boaters reporting 25-30 fish landed while others are not even hooking up. The albies can be found as far east as Nantucket and the Vineyard, and those small 1- to 4-pound bonito are still poking around Buzzards Bay and on up as far north as Boston and the North Shore.

Jumping back down to where I am today in the Sound, when the bass, blues and albies don’t cooperate, Capt. Greg of the Black Hawk advises taking a run to the waters between Fishers and Montauk and on over to Block where there has been a solid bite for bottom fish with black sea bass and porgies jumping all over bait rigs. The action on bigger fish of both species tends to get better the further east you go, and you can expect to start seeing some cod popping up along the way, too.

In Rhode Island there continues to be solid action on bass and blues in the breachways and along the surrounding beaches. My friend Joe of JoeBaggs Bucktails had bass to 30-plus pounds over the weekend on his Patriot Fish. He said that he saw mixed baitfish, but specifically a load of needlefish of which the slender Patriot Fish is a great imitator. White bucktails have also been producing some large bass as there has been a steady flow of mullet dumping out of the ponds.

And last but not least, the Martha’s Vineyard Derby is in full swing, let’s see what Wilson Kerr has for updates on the action around the island as we lead into the final weeks of the derby.

Remember that if I didn’t get to your species or location of choice this week, you can always check out the complete fishing reports from Maine to the Mid-Atlantic at http://www.thefisherman.com/index.cfm....

October 11, 2018 New Jersey/Delaware Bay Fishing Report with Jim Hutchinson, Jr.
The Fisherman Magazine


Published on Oct 11, 2018
Weekly fishing reports for NJ, DE Bay region at http://www.thefisherman.com/index.cfm...

A devastating hurricane materialized almost overnight in the Gulf of Mexico, bringing a swath of devastation along Florida’s Forgotten Coast. Fisherman staffers are actually in South Carolina this week which is seeing the tropical remnants of Michael on Thursday morning; this fast-moving storm should stay to the south of most of our New Jersey, Delaware region by Friday though it will usher in stiff NW winds from Friday through Sunday. Those offshore winds should flatten out the inshore waters well enough to get back on the black sea bass action, while hopefully cooling off surf temps and moving bait and stripers out along the front beaches. Midweek water temps at the Jersey Shore were still 8 to 10 degrees above normal for this time of year, keeping our late summer action on pompano, sheepshead and blowfish going. Those looking to hit the edge for tuna and swordfish may get a good window on Sunday. This latest (and hopefully last) tropical storm of 2018 could offer the transition to fall that we’ve all been waiting for.

October 11, 2018 Long Island Metro Fishing Report with Fred Golofaro
The Fisherman Magazine


Published on Oct 11, 2018
Weekly reports for Long Island and Metro New York at http://www.thefisherman.com/index.cfm...

Despite temperatures running above normal in recent weeks, it’s safe to say fall fishing is slipping into high gear for many inshore species, as well as sharks on the offshore scene. Porgies and sea bass with a smattering of other species are making for some great mixed bag action on reefs and rocky bottom areas all around the Island. Diamond jigging for stripers on the East End is being fueled by a healthy supply of big sand eels, and those same baitfish have spread west along the surf line providing the surfcasting crowd with an increasing number of chances at beaching a decent striper from among many small fish. False albacore are generating lots of excitement from Montauk to Breezy Point, and Orient Point to Eatons Neck. Boatmen certainly have the edge with some individual catches of two dozen or more of the speedsters, but surfcasters have also been into the action in places like Shinnecock Inlet, Montauk’s Harbor entrance and some North Fork beaches.
Currently, it’s looking like we may be dealing with the remnants of Hurricane Michael by Friday so be sure to check the marine forecast when planning your fishing this weekend. One thing is for certain, that it will feel a lot more like fall this weekend with nighttime temps dropping into the 40s in some parts of the region. That’s good news for blackfish fans who could use a drop in water temperatures to fire up the tog bite. Blackfish season opens today, October 11th in Long Island Sound, and October 15th around the rest of the Island.

October 11, 2018 New England Fishing Report with Toby Lapinski
The Fisherman Magazine


Published on Oct 11, 2018
Be sure to follow the weekly fishing reports across New England at http://www.thefisherman.com/index.cfm....

I’m going to start off with a news item this week as there is a proposal before NOAA Fisheries to open up part of the EEZ to the possession and targeting of striped bass. Known as the Block Island Transit Zone, this section of our ocean encompasses the striped bass No Man’s Land of sorts which lies between Block Island and the mainland of Rhode Island to the north, and between Block Island and Montauk to the west. In case you are not aware, it is illegal to target and possess striped bass in Federal waters which are located outside 3 miles from shore. When this designation was put in place in 1984 by the passing of the Atlantic Striped Bass Conservation Act, it created islands of legal fishing waters surrounded by those in which it is illegal to target striped bass. Most notably, the waters around Block Island fell into this classification. Fortunately it was made legal to transport striped bass though this area, so long as one wasn’t to stop along the way and the fish were landed inside that 3-mile line. Well, this has become a point of contention for many anglers who fish these waters, and several attempts have been made over the years to make fishing here legal. Without getting too much further into the nuts and bolts of what is going on, I’d like to direct you to the full news story posted at TheFisherman.com which outlines both the proposal as well as the details on the public comment period which runs through November 19, 2018. Be sure to give the story a read and submit your comments ASAP. I will follow up on this subject as additional information is made public. http://www.thefisherman.com/index.cfm...

One more quick note to pass along, blackfish season opened up on Wednesday, October 10 in Connecticut waters. Fishing has been very good both up in Massachusetts and Rhode Island lately for blackfish, and now Connecticut anglers can join in on the fun. With the kick-off of the season in CT, the guys at Black Hall Outfitters in Old Lyme and Westbrook, CT have their annual Tog-Tober Tournament taking place this Saturday and Sunday, October 13 – 14. There are divisions for both kayak and boat anglers, and they have some awesome prizes up for grabs. Call the shop today at 860-434-9680 for more details and to sign up. And if you would like a full rundown of all the blackfish tournaments taking place this fall, be sure to check out the news story posted at http://www.thefisherman.com/index.cfm....

I received an email from Fisherman subscriber, Ryan Maliszewski over the weekend as he spent some time fishing with his son, Cody, on Saturday. Before this trip Cody had never landed a false albacore, but by day’s end he not only checked them off his list, he totaled four albies along with some striped bass and bluefish. Cody has been featured in The Fisherman before with some nice fluke that he and his dad landed, and I’m sure that we’ll be hearing of more of his exploits in the years to come.

Wilson Kerr of the Martha’s Vineyard Derby provides an update as we head into the final days of the tournament which closes out this weekend.

And up on the Cape, Simeon Watson from the Goose Hummock Shop fills us in on the happenings in and around the Cape.

October 18, 2018 New Jersey/Delaware Bay Fishing Report with Jim Hutchinson, Jr.
The Fisherman Magazine


Published on Oct 18, 2018
Get weekly fishing reports for NJ/DE Bay at http://www.thefisherman.com/index.cfm...

Three words - THEY ARE HERE!

Fall has gotten off to a rather slow start, but the latest dose of cooler weather and steady flow of offshore winds has finally gotten the fish on the feed. Birds wheeling and diving on bait on the Raritan, and reports of 20-, 30- and even 40-pound stripers on the troll along the Northern and Central Jersey coast has boaters scrambling for the spoons and mojos, as surfcasters sort through prime plugs for the weekend ahead. An influx of bunker moved into Monmouth County this week with good stripers hot on their tails; with another steady dose of W/NW winds forecast for the weekend ahead, things could get interesting at the Jersey Shore this weekend.

Mud Hole bluefin action is leading HMS permit holders to grab the heavy spin gear and topwaters, while the for-hire fleet is back in black sea bass for the weekend ahead. For those who’ve thought it’s too late to pick up a freshwater fishing license in 2018, Saturday, October 20 is your chance to fish for free in New Jersey. So many options, hope your “honeydo” list can wait a few days!

October 18, 2018 Long Island Metro Fishing Report with Fred Golofaro
The Fisherman Magazine


Published on Oct 18, 2018
Weekly fishing reports for Long Island, Metro New York at http://www.thefisherman.com/index.cfm...

Lots of wind the first part of the week made for some tough fishing conditions around the Island and kept some boats tied to the dock, but there was enough good fishing over the weekend to make it pretty clear that fall fishing is in full swing.

North Fork party and charter boats scored limit catches of blackfish, and there has been no shortage of bass, blues and albies at that end of the Sound.

South Shore wrecks are yielding mixed bags of sea bass, porgies, triggerfish, blue runners, bluefish and blackfish. Capt. John Raguso and his crew worked a South Shore wreck Sunday to the tune of 9 different species including sea bass, porgies, bluefish, green bonito, bergalls, blue runners, triggerfish sea robins and dogfish. Striped bass fishing has also come alive along the South Shore and is spreading west. Boatmen scored some quality fish, and surfcasters had their first taste of solid striper action on the weekend.

The offshore scene is alive and well with good numbers of sharks being reported and talk of a good bluefin bite in the West Mud Hole. Unfortunately, this week’s windy forecast could short circuit any attempts to get offshore.

Weatherwise, it looks like we’re in one of those stretches where someone forgot to turn off the fan.

Saturday looks like a tough day with a stiff southwester and rain, and a good breeze out of the northwest on Sunday, but check for updates as the weather can change quickly this time of the year.

October 18, 2018 New England Fishing Report with Toby Lapinski
The Fisherman Magazine


Published on Oct 18, 2018
Be sure to follow the weekly fishing reports across New England at http://www.thefisherman.com/index.cfm....

I’d like to begin this week with a reminder about the public comment period running through mid-November on the proposal to open up part of the EEZ off Block Island to the possession and targeting of striped bass. All the details on this proposal and how you can submit your comments on the subject can be found at http://www.thefisherman.com/index.cfm....

Starting up north this week, Sam Brown of the Goose Hummock Shop gives us the lowdown on what’s biting out on the Cape.

Moving south, the Martha’s Vineyard Striped Bass and Bluefish derby closed out over the weekend, and our very own Dale Nicholson was on hand for the closing ceremonies. The Fisherman Magazine was once again proud to be a major sponsor of the derby’s catch and release division this year.

Staying in Massachusetts, we move back to the mainland where Capt. Jason Colby of Little Sister Charters checked-in to say that blackfishing in Buzzards Bay is excellent right now. While some days he has to rock hop to find the most cooperative fish, the action has been steady with fish to 8-plus pounds on each trip like this one landed by Kevin Cheung of Quincy on a Tidal Tails Jig. Jason has some open boat spots available still, so drop him an email at FishingLSister@aol.com for more details.

Sliding down the coast to Rhode Island, the Frances Fleet began sailing daily for blackfish over the weekend, and they managed almost a full boat limit of fish to 8 pounds right out the gate. Unfortunately the winds kicked up early in the week and made fishing and sailing tough, but the bite should bounce-back as soon as the winds ease off. It is also worth noting that the limit in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts went from 3 to 5 fish per angler as of Monday the 15th, but keep in mind that there is a per-boat limit of 10 fish regardless of the number of anglers onboard. This only applies to private boats as for-hire and party boats do not have a boat limit, only the per-angler bag limit.

And last but not least, with blackfish season now open in Connecticut, anglers were out in droves over the weekend, hunting togzilla in the Sound. The annual Tog-Tober Tournament by Black Hall Outfitters took place Saturday and Sunday, and first place in the kayak division was Edward Neely with 10.7-pound fish. First place in the boat division was Ron Shaw with a 6.9-pound fish.

I spoke to Fisherman subscriber Jeff Tyrol on Monday, and he just missed the Tog-Tober weigh-in with an impressive 12.72-pound blackfish! He said that he landed the big fish in 7 feet of water, and after weighing her in for a couple tournaments and keeping the fish alive in his boat’s live well, he tagged and released her to keep on growing and hopefully making more baby togzillas of her own! Congrats on the big fish and thank you for the live release!

Remember that if I didn’t get to your species or location of choice this week, you can always check out the complete fishing reports from Maine to the Mid-Atlantic at http://www.thefisherman.com/index.cfm....

Using Google Maps to Find HIDDEN Fishing Spots

In this Florida fishing video, instead of fishing the same old fishing spots we went searching for new fishing spots using Google Maps. Inshore fishing on our flats boat and finding hidden bridges and seawalls to fish is so much fun!

Man, fishing has been brutal all last two weeks. I've been chasing ghost king macks, and other stuff moving down the beach to a struggle. It's not as easy as striper lol! Decided to stay inshore and see what we could muster up for dinner.

I worked jigs on the bottom and some stuff up high. Ended up with a mess of trout (mostly undersize) and a nice spanish mack.
