By Candus Thomson, The Baltimore Sun Aug. 3--Four thoughts about the meeting last week in Annapolis on new yellow perch fishing regulations, then I promise to let it go. 1.) Eight thousand pounds of fish. Were we really having a serious, adult conversation about 8,000pounds of fish? That's what watermen reported catching this spring in their truncated season. The state estimates that no more than 40 watermen take part in the harvest. Forty into 8,000 is 200 pounds. What kind of a...

By Delthia Ricks, Newsday, Melville, N.Y. Jul. 24--Mercury levels in several varieties of Hudson River fish have declined significantly over the past three decades, Stony Brook researchers have found in an analysis that points to dramatically decreasing concentrations of industrial pollution. Heavy-metal contaminants -- particularly mercury -- mounted up in the Hudson throughout most of the 20th century because of increasing dependence on the river for industry and commerce. Now, after...

By Ad Crable Only a few years ago, it all seemed so promising. American shad, once a prized spring staple of locals' diet and an economic linchpin up and down the Susquehanna, at last seemed headed for a comeback amid a multi-state and federal restoration plan. Visions of again catching the silvery, forked-tail fish, perhaps frying its tasty roe in butter, danced in anglers' heads. Fish lifts or ladders - costing utilities tens of millions of dollars - were in place on all the...

By Mark Taylor mark.taylor@roanoke.com 981-3395 If you were in charge of recruiting new businesses to the Roanoke Valley, where would you take the decision-makers as you pitched this area's quality of life appeal? Mill Mountain, probably, where you could stand on the overlook and give the visitors a good view of our pretty valley. Probably the bustling downtown on a busy Friday evening. Maybe Smith Mountain Lake, the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Appalachian Trail. High on my list...

By JIM FREDA Striped bass action has slowed along the beach in Monmouth and Ocean counties despite the fact that there is still plenty of bunker around to trigger the activity. Many boaters put in their time working the pods over with few fish to show for it. This can change quickly, however, if schools of striped bass decide to set up on them again. If it does, it will be a matter of being in the right place at the right time. One spot that has consistently produced fish is the...

By JIM FREDA Acres and of bunker are still present in Monmouth and Ocean county waters with the area from Bradley Beach to Mantoloking having the largest concentrations in the last week. The action for big striped bass, however, has been like a roller coaster ride as each day has its ups or downs and special twists or turns. There is usually a bite each day somewhere in the above- mentioned area but it has been occurring with no rhyme or reason and at no particular place. Sometimes it has...

By Steve Grant, The Hartford Courant, Conn. Jul. 5--On a late spring evening with the sun setting, the mouth of the Connecticut River was sprinkled with powerboats and kayaks from Old Saybrook to Old Lyme, most everybody fishing. They were after striped bass -- big ones. Herring and alewives were returning to the sea after spawning. The stripers -- and the anglers -- were waiting, among them Scott Karsten of Glastonbury, a lawyer, and Dixon M. Merkt of Lyme, a guide who was fishing...

By Scott Richardson;srichardson@pantagraph.com Striped bass may be the strongest fish swimming in Illinois waters with the exception of muskies and flathead catfish. As of this week, more hybrid stripers are swimming in Clinton Lake thanks to Exelon, which operates the nuclear power plant at the 5,000-acre reservoir. The company donated 50,000 hybrid striped bass fingerlings about three to four inches long as one of several initiatives to improve fishing and the natural setting at the...

DALLAS _ Smallmouth bass have taken a hit from golden alga, the insidious blooming plant that's caused problems in West Texas fish hatcheries and at Lake Whitney, the heavyweight champ of the state's smallmouth lakes. Smallmouth bass are not native to Texas. They were introduced during Texas Parks and Wildlife's experimental period of testing the adaptability of every game fish from walleye to peacock bass. Texas summers are too harsh for some species that evolved in more temperate...

The Atlantic menhaden (Brevoortia tyrannus) is a silvery, highly compressed fish in the herring family, Clupeidae. A filter feeder, it lives on plankton caught in midwater. An adult fish can filter up to four gallons of water a minute and they play an important role in clarifying ocean water. They are also a natural check to the deadly red tide. Menhaden occur in large numbers in the North Atlantic, ranging from Nova Scotia, Canada to central Florida, USA. They swim in large schools, some...
