“Hammerhead Attacking Tarpon”
_**Photo submitted by: Whitty **
User Description: After fighting tarpon to the boat the shark comes out and begins to chase tarpon before we’ve released him. Tarpon darts to trolling motor and snaps line, for 15 minutes the shark attacked the tarpon never landing a bite because the tarpon would stay on its head where the teeth could not touch it then hid under boat.

“Long Island (Orient Point) Striped Bass Fishing”
**Photo submitted by: 7mmmagnm **
** User Description:** Doing your homework and discovering underwater structures and moon phases helps me to consistently land quality striped bass that most fisherman crave. Whether its drifting live eels, or dropping anchor and fishing with big baits, knowing when the conditions are right is the key to success.
Species: Stripped Bass; Where: New York; Method: Live Bait

“Homemade Fishing Gadget”
Photo submitted by: Chris Menig
User Description: Use sticky velcro on an old pill container and attach it to your vest or bag. The fuzzy velcro will hold flies and hooks to dry, while the other male side will hold scrap line. Cut the safety off the bottle for easier opening and place micro garbage or needed tools inside. This is handy and, more important, a plus for the environment.

“Daddy’s Little Pack Mule”
Photo submitted by: beth15mckenna
User Description: It was a great morning in the field, and my husband’s vest was getting full. Gus (age 3) insisted on carrying this giant rooster in his vest, just like his daddy. It was so heavy that his vest was sagging down to his knees, but this little guy was determined to keep carrying his “little rooster friend.” I love pheasant hunting, but I love watching my kids enjoy it even more!
Species: Pheasant; Where: Minnesota; Method: Shotgun
Photo submitted by: Jessica Riehl
User Description: Fishing all day, caught some Large mouth bass some small size and some decent 4 lb. ones, the sunset was breathtaking, thought it was worth sharing with everyone. Just a small lake in Minnesota after the wind calmed down and the sun set…priceless.
