    As a fishing spouse, you’ll find yourself putting up with things the average spouse could never relate to. While it in no way reflects how much your spouse loves you, when it comes to fishing, you often take a backseat. Before the honeymoon phase is over, you'll find yourself making a whole host of unique concessions on behalf of your spouse’s favorite hobby. Here are 10 surefire signs you're married to a fisherman (or woman): 1. There are always fish to be caught. Unlike hunting seasons that have distinct start dates and end dates, there is generally always some type...

  • Supreme Court Rules Against Prosecuting Fisherman Under Post-Enron Anti-Shredding Law

    02/25/2015 9:53:08 PM PST · by Behind Liberal Lines · 22 replies
    Washington, DC (February 25, 2015) – This morning, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its opinion in Yates v. United States. This case highlights the problem of overcriminalization and specifically the dangerous consequences stemming from prosecutorial expansion of the laws passed by Congress. In Yates v. United States, the Court today rejected the government's use of an overly broad interpretation of a post-Enron anti-shredding statute (18 U.S.C. §1519), a statute that provides for up to a 20-year prison sentence, to prosecute a fisherman for the disappearance of some undersized fish from his shipping vessel. While the dissent differed in its interpretation...

    John Yates may have dreamed that one day he would wind up on the cover of Florida Sport Fishing magazine. Instead, he wound up in Florida Federal District Court and now in the Supreme Court of the United States, where he is the latest poster child for overcriminalization. His story would make for a good episode of “South Park” or “The Simpsons” but for one fact: It’s true.
  • Fishermen Plane Sighting a Tip or False Lead in MH370 Hunt?

    Fishermen from this village believe they may have seen the missing Malaysia Airlines flight on the night it disappeared flying low over the Gulf of Thailand. It's not clear whether what they saw was flight MH370 or whether it is the latest in a string of false leads in the search for the missing plane, but if true it would suggest that the plane may have flown low to avoid radar, what is known as "terrain masking." On March 8 flight MH370 disappeared from radar as it flew north over the Gulf of Thailand towards Vietnam en route to Beijing....

    Captains issue S.O.S., claiming new rules meant to save the fish are killing their way of life. With the height of the New England fishing season getting under way this week, small family fishermen say controversial new rules are destroying their livelihood — forcing them to sell their boats and instead search for work as laborers on larger vessels. “It’s a death knell. It’s the beginning of the end for small fishermen,” said Rhode Island fisherman Joel Hovanesian, 54, who recently sold his boat. Plymouth fisherman Stephen Welch, 50, a father of two, said: “We’re in a crisis right now.”...

    As a lifelong commercial fisherman from Rhode Island who is involved with the regulatory process, I have one simple question to ask: Just what are we trying to accomplish with fish quotas? Federally, the science that drives the stock assessments and sets the quotas is so bad that industry has taken it upon itself to provide a better snapshot of many stocks of concern. Predictably, the picture is not nearly as dire as our federal scientists would lead us to believe. Recently, a side-by-side comparison was done, using the new multi-gazillion-dollar research vessel paid for with your tax dollars and...

WMUR reported: Fishermen on New Hampshire’s Seacoast are warning that new fishing regulations could destroy their industry and have already caused them severe emotional stress. The U.S. Department of Commerce has sent a team to Seabrook to look at the effects of the new regulations. “If they don’t do something to modify the fishing regulations, we won’t have a fishing industry on the Seacoast, is what it boils down to,” said Hampton Town Manager Fred Welch.

    MADEIRA BEACH, Fla. – Florida authorities say a commercial fisherman reeled in a live missile in the Gulf of Mexico and kept it on his boat for 10 days.

The Air Force and Navy use Gulf waters off the Panhandle for weapons training.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation are coordinating Saturday's volunteer effort after thousands of fish died last week during the agency's pumping operation on Prospect Island. Bureau spokesman Jeff McCracken says between 45 and 50 fishermen have caught and released more than 1,300 stripped bass into Sacramento's Deep Water Ship Channel. Federal officials blocked local fisherman from helping save fish last week. Volunteers also plan to work Sunday.

Three friends landed some fish off Kahana Bay on Thursday and a 40-pound feral pig that was swimming near their boat. As the small fishing boat headed for shore at Kahana Bay, nothing seemed out of the ordinary. However, on closer inspection, the catch of the day was not seafood. It was pork.

    THREE Mexican shark fishermen survived nine months at sea in a small boat by eating raw birds and fish and drinking rain water as they drifted thousands of kiloometres across the Pacific Ocean. The fishermen said they left their home town of San Blas on Mexico's Pacific coast last November and were blown 8000km off course after their 8-metre fibreglass boat ran out of gas and they were left to the mercy of the winds and the tides. Their families had given them up for dead but they found a way to survive. "We ate raw fish, ducks, sea gulls....

    A Japanese fisherman is reported to have been shot dead by a Russian patrol boat, near a disputed island chain. Japan's foreign ministry said that, if confirmed, the death was unacceptable. It also demanded the release of three surviving men from the Japanese boat, who are thought to have been detained by the Russians on a nearby island. Both Tokyo and Moscow lay claim to the four small islands, which Russia calls the southern Kurils and Japan the Northern Territories. The ongoing dispute has prevented the two nations signing a peace treaty to formally end hostilities from WWII. The islands...

    When he saw a companion on his boat hook a giant fish during a sea angling contest, Ian Card was delighted. Next second, the scene of triumph turned to horror - as the 14ft blue marlin leapt out of the water across the vessel and speared Mr Card through the chest with its spiked bill. The impact of the 800lb fish knocked him overboard into the Atlantic off Bermuda. Then, with a thrash of its tail and with the 32-year-old still impaled and bleeding profusely, it dragged him underwater. Terribly injured, he somehow stayed conscious as he struggled to pull...
