Tarpon Tom

Thomas F. Gibson, Jr, is a tarpon fishing enthusiast who has set many records for the biggest fish caught. An engineer for NASA, Gibson catches the fish using large, No. 16/0 circle hooks that trail nine-inch wiggly, green plastic lures called Texas Term Pops.
He’s known as “Tarpon Tom” to the guides along the Texas coast from Galveston to Padre Island, and with good reason. Thomas F. Gibson, Jr. doesn’t fool around. His single-minded quest for giant tarpon – tarpon big enough to make the IGFA record book – is as obsessive as Captain Ahab’s pursuit of the Great White Whale, except that in the forty-four years since

Gibson fought his first tarpon at age eleven, he has caught over a thousand of the fish he seeks, five of which have qualified as world records, and two more which set state records in Texas and Louisiana.

How to Choose Best Wading Boots

1/ Styles

Wading boots come in from the light weight sneaker models to the heavy duty hiking boots. Thus, selecting the best wading boots – the kind of wading boot fitting your demand is not difficult. What type you should purchase will depend on the kind of fishing you are intending to do. Choose a pair of durable hiking boots, if you (angler) must traverse around obstructions or walk long distance. The light weight boot foot ones with felt soles are ideal for wading most of streams as they provide extra traction on slick rock. It will be very easy and ideal for you to walk on the coastal areas or low-water streams by sneaker style boots.

2/ Sizing

As a general rule of thumb, the size of wading footwear is different from the hiking boots or normal shoes. Wading boot had better have a size up from a pair of standard hiking boot. Anglers will feel more comfortable with the additional space into their wading boots whilst still wearing socks. In case you fish in cold water in the early season, It  would be best to add an extra half size to your wading boots. To protect your feet away the cold weather, that half size ought to account for the wool or thermal socks.

A century of piscatorial progress

The ‘good old days’ of fishing were not always as good as imagined, and those returning to those days might miss modern fishing equipment. A survey of the advances in fishing equipment and in fishing conditions during the 100-year history of Field and Stream magazine is presented.

copping a royale attitude

A man and his wife travel to Isle Royale in Lake Superior to fish for the northern pike. They stay at a hotel which is very close to the wilderness, where they spend time hiking. They also set out in a canoe, but do not catch any pike, perhaps because the weather was too warm.

In California: rod-and-reelers deliver their fish alive and kicking

With surgical precision, skipper John Alioto pushes as 14-gauge hypodermic needle through the skin of a rockfish that lays slapping its tail on the edge of a fiberglass “live-tank”. An inch into the fish, he strikes his target – a gas sack, or swim bladder, whose contents must be removed so the fish can survive in the tank. The gas wheezes through the syringe as Alioto gently massages the fish’s belly.

“These gopher cod are the easiest to |punch’; anywhere around the belly seems to work,” he says, tossing the 2-lb. fish into one of two 550-gal. tanks, each of which holds 400 lbs. of live fish. “Others, like bolinas, are more difficult. You’ve got to punch them two or three times to get all the gas out. Even then, they don’t survive too sell.”

In the land of the midnight salmonid

White whales. Caribou roadblocks. And other strange things seen on Ungawa Bay

THERE WERE no trees. From Monlreal, we had flown north and farther north until the land ran out of forest. Lakes began to freckle the gray glacial scrape below. Some were stained orange by bleeding iron deposits; others were a deep, incongruous tropical aquamarine. At Kuujjuaq, the last settlement with an airport and the site of a famous American air base during World War II, we switched from the 737 to a Twin Otter charter, and the endless shallow lakes gave way to dark coves, the finger inlets of Ungava Bay and a vast black arctic sea.
