    Otter Fishing Tradition May Be Coming to an End in Bangladesh

    By David Draper

    In the past few months we’ve heard of otters eating alligators and terrorizing customers at a fast food restaurant, tarnishing the furry mammal’s cute and cuddly reputation. But not all otters are vicious creatures out for blood. Some, like the endangered short-haired otters, have been helping fishermen in Bangladesh catch fish for centuries.

    Otter fishing is a centuries-old tradition in Bangladesh; a rare technique that is passed on from father to son.

    “We use them because they catch more fish that we can alone,” Shashudhar Biswas, a fisherman in his 50s whose family has trained otters for generations, told Time.

    Mississippi Man Catches State Record Amberjack

    By Ben Romans

    Angler Don Wheeler was fishing with an old friend from high school in the Gulf of Mexico near Biloxi on March 22 when he landed a 126-pound amberjack, beating the current Mississippi saltwater state record by just more than a pound.
    Wheeler told he had just changed bait to an 8-pound Spanish mackerel when he hooked the fish in 200 feet of water, and then fought the fish for 30 minutes before bringing it into the boat.
    “Basically, I was holding on to the rod because the fish was putting a tremendous strain on my arms, back and legs. Amberjacks tend to pull like a donkey and I did my best to hold on. But my adrenaline was too high to quit,” Wheeler said.

    Video: Kayaker vs Shark

    By Ben Romans

    Angler Jason Downs was working a hooked grouper from his kayak when a bull shark broke the water’s surface next to his kayak and stole the fish.

    He was fishing off Florida’s Navarre Beach and managed to film the incident. He said the fact the shark stole the grouper made him more angry than scared.
    “To be honest, my first reaction was anger,” Downs explained in an email to GrindTV Outdoor. “The reason I muted the video after the shark took my grouper was not because I was cussing out of fear; it was because I was cussing at the shark for taking my grouper!

    Video: Sea Lions Use Boat as Cover from Killer Whales

    By Ben Romans

    A family fishing near Prince George, British Columbia got a close look at killer whales in action when sea lions swam alongside their boat, using it as cover to escape the orcas, Global News reports.
    This short clip filmed by Travis Twizell shows at least four sea lions swimming in the wake of the boat and directly under the hull while five orcas make arching dives and take positions around the boat’s perimeter, preparing to attack.
    “It was a little nerve-wracking. We were not sure if the sea lions were going to jump into the boat, because the killer whales followed them over,” Twizell told Global News. “You could see the three big whales backed off, and the two small orcas started to hit against it and take it down. You could tell at that point it was a total hunting training exercise for those babies.”
