Extreme Fishing

[ad_1]

What’s extreme  fishing ?

Only the most exciting, most thrilling, most fun water sport ever created – that’s what!

a) Extreme  fishing  is  fishing  with a shot of adrenaline!

b) Extreme  fishing  is regular  fishing  on steroids!

Trout and salmon  fishing  in small water (such as streams and rivers) is extreme  fishing !

Ice  fishing  is extreme  fishing !

Noodling (the practice of  fishing  for Catfish using only your bare hands) is extreme  fishing !

Extreme  fishing  uses the same techniques and methods as recreational  fishing  – it simply takes it all one step further in the search for bigger, rarer, and more challenging fish.

Fish such as:

Peacock Bass

Masheer

Goonch

Tiger Fish

And many others!

Fly-fishing

Fly-fishing is used mainly for salmon and trout, and sometimes for pike, bass, and carp.

Fly-fishing involves tying artificial flies onto a hook with thread, fur, feathers, and other materials, in sizes and colors to match naturally occurring food or to excite a fish.

Fly rods are light and long while the lines are relatively heavy. The fly may weigh very little and is usually attached to the line by leader, which may taper to a fine line, called the tippet.

The main difference between fly-fishing and casting is that in casting, you use the weight of the lure and in fly-fishing, the fly you use the weight of the line to place the fly where you want it to be.

The Goonch

You want big?

How about  fishing  in India, specifically the River Saryu in the Indian Himalayas for Goonch?

Big?

The most common size caught is from twenty to thirty pounds with fish of one hundred pounds or more not uncommon. But that’s not all the world record Goonch is just over four hundred pounds.

That’s enough to feed an entire town.

Goonch is a species of Catfish. They are not easy to catch. They are prevalent in the waters however they are picky eaters. It is best to find out what their natural diets consist of and match your bait or lures as closely as possible.

The upper Ramganga River in India is also a prime  fishing  river for these big fish.

Noodling

Noodling is where you use your bare hands instead of tackle to catch a fish, usually a type of catfish.

Noodling is also known as “grabbling,” “hogging, “dogging” and “stumping.” Officially, it’s known as “hand  fishing .” Noodling is only legal in certain states, mostly southern states including Arkansas and Oklahoma.

Noodling was made legal in Missouri in 2005 after pressure from adherents. It’s now legal in fourteen states.

It’s recorded that southern American Indians used to dive down and catch fish by hand and rural settlers took up the tradition. Noodling is thought by many to be the ultimate  fishing  sport. You need a special permit to noodle.

Conservationists oppose noodling as it could reduce the fish population. Female catfish can take seven years to become mature. However, because of the danger involved, few people actually fish this way.

Noodling isn’t the only way of catching fish by hand. In Britain, a more sedate version of hand  fishing  is “trout tickling.” This is the art of rubbing the underbelly of a trout with your fingers. The trout goes into a trance state after a minute or so, and can then be flipped onto the nearest bit of dry land.

Spear  Fishing 

Spear  fishing  is an ancient method of  fishing  where you use an ordinary spear or a specially designed variant.

Traditional spear  fishing  is restricted to shallow waters, but the invention of the spear gun has made it more efficient.

Small hand nets have been used since antiquity to sweep up fish near the surface.

The Peacock Bass

Some times it is the type of fish you go after that makes your  fishing  extreme. This “little guy” is a Brazilian Peacock Bass.

Peacock Bass differ from other species in their color and their size. They generally range from twenty-four inches to a normal of thirty inches at least, if not larger. Also unlike their American cousins that prefer hiding in reeds etc., the Peacock Bass prefers the water in the middle of the river.

Found mostly in Colombia and the Oyapock River in Brazil, the Peacock Bass inhabits both black water and white water. Peacock Bass stay in slow moving deeper water close to the shore if the habitat allows.
