    Best Rigs For Scuplin Fishing

    January 18, 2020

    This week on the Tackle Box
    we’re gonna talk to you guys a little bit about
    what we’re doing today. We’re fishing for
    sculpin basically on this twilight trip. And a really easy rig
    to use for sculpin is the double dropper loop rig. And all that is is
    taking two buck tails, space them far enough apart
    in case you catch a big fish, and that way if you
    get one big fish it doesn’t cover
    both buck tails. So you wanna spread
    them far enough apart so you catch two big fish on
    the two separate buck tails. On the bottom you’re gonna
    be using a large sinker, anywhere from 10 ounces,
    maybe even 12 ounces, depending on the current. I’d make sure you have
    everything with you from 6 to 12 ounces
    just in case, because like I said, you
    never know in the depth you guys are fishing
    and the current. Now if you wanna
    target one big fish or one big sculpin,
    then go up to six ounce or four ounce B52 buck tail. Just put some dead
    squid on the back of it right on the bottom, and
    that’ll work out good too. As far as rod and reels,
    something like this works out nice,
    something kinda light. I have 65-pound spectra, and on top of that I
    have 25 to 30-pound mono. Don’t use fluorocarbon
    because you’re gonna fish right on the bottom,
    especially at night. So save the money
    on the fluorocarbon, just use straight mono. But something light like
    this will work out fine. This is all you need
    for sculpin fishing or twilight fishing. Let’s get back on the water and show you more
    exciting action right here on Sport Fishing.

    Should We Close The Ocean To Save Fish?

    Should We Close The Ocean To Save Fish?

    January 17, 2020

    Here’s an awesome way to stop overfishing:
    Let’s just close the oceans! Easy peasy! Right? Guys? Hey piscivores, Trace here for DNews — We’re
    killing the oceans. In the middle of the last century, aggressive commercial fishing really
    hit the oceans hard, trying to get high-protein fish into our diet. In 1989, 90 million metric
    tons of fish were taken from the ocean. Since that peak, the number of fish caught has decreased
    every year since, and not because we don’t WANT more fish, but because they’re simply
    — not there. In the year 2000, the BBC assumed genetically
    farmed fish would be sustaining the world by 2025, that’s not far off. At the time,
    the United Nations estimated 70 percent of the world was threatened by overfishing. Then,
    in 2003 the journal Nature estimated of the biomass of all fish in the ocean was only
    10% of what it was before commercial fishing. It’s sort of like, we HAD 10 fish, and we
    ate 9 of them. At the moment, the international community agreed to fish in seasons, with
    catch quotas and minimum size limits — with the hope this would allow time for the fish
    to mature, spawn and build the population. News flash, it ain’t workin’. Why? Because
    we’re not really managing the fisheries, it’s essentially a free for all once ships are
    in international waters. According to the World Wildlife Federation, “the global fishing
    fleet is 2-3 times larger than what the oceans can sustainably support.” So what do we do?! A new plan published in PLOS Biology has a
    pretty radical solution that they say will sustain the fish population forever… CLOSE
    THE OCEANS // OKAY EVERYONE, CLOSE IT UP, WE HAD A GOOD RUN. Seriously? Close the oceans? Would this work?
    According to the researchers’ models, Yeah. Not only would it work, but we’d make money
    in the long run. Their plan is close the high seas — which are real, it’s not just a pirate
    joke. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization define the high seas as international
    waters more than 200 miles from land. If you do the math, that’s 64 percent of ocean’s
    surface and 95 percent of its volume, all unfishable. Closed. But only for a few years,
    then when they’re reopened again under new regulations, we can fish sustainably FOREVER! Yes, it sounds a little far fetched, but last
    month, the director of the international consulting firm McKinsey & Company said the SAME THING!
    He said, we’re SUBSIDIZING high seas fishing, which increasingly is not a profitable enterprise.
    Ships meander around the oceans, looking for remaining populations. If we designated the
    high seas as conservation areas it would cost us $2 per person on average, but we’d get
    $4 back in the long run. Once populations rebounded, there would be more fish to catch,
    which is good for business AND conservationists. A study in Science from 2006 says if we don’t
    do SOMETHING then by 2050 it’s all over; we’re going to have no more fish to eat. Under the
    PLOS Biology plan, each country could regulate its own 200 miles of fishing waters, and thus
    maintain healthy populations of local fish and allow for the global population to rebound.
    Iceland, Australia, New Zealand and the United States have already begun attempts to rebuild
    their fishing stock, but there’s a LOT more to do. Would this mean you CAN’T have sushi for a
    while? Not really, but the sushi you have might be more expensive as only a small portion
    of the fish will wander into the acceptable fishing areas. Yes, there WOULD be economic
    impact around the planet, but if we don’t do SOMETHING we’re on track to hunt fish to
    extinction. Is it worth it? Should they work it? Put your
    comment down below, and thanks for watching DNews today! Subscribe for daily videos!

    Manhattan Beach Sand Section Video Tour with Greg Geilman |

    January 15, 2020

    Hi, welcome the famous Sand Section
    in Manhattan Beach California, best known for spectacular ocean views,
    proximity to the beach, and an abundance of outdoor activities. Located in the westernmost part in Manhattan Beach. The Manhattan Beach Sand Section gets its name for well being so close to the sand. The Manhattan Beach Sand Section is very walkable. Day or night you’ll see folks walking their dogs taking a jog down the Strand or
    strolling through downtown. The Sand Section has a very European
    feel to it, with cafes, restaurants and exciting nightlife within walking distance from the quiet
    residential streets. Properties West of Highland Avenue are closer to the beach and usually priced a bit higher. One compromise to living in the Sand
    Section is their homes are built with only a three foot setback so you’re very close to your next-door
    neighbors likely to have no yard at all. Most homes are two or three stories with
    the entertaining area upstairs to maximize for the stunning ocean views. I’m in addition, Manhattan Beach has some
    of the best schools in the entire country. Children living in the Sand Section
    usually go to Grand View Elementary in the north, or Robinson Elementary in the south end,
    both boasting high API scores. The Manhattan Beach Sand Section as many distinct neighborhoods each with its own personality. the strand, a wide cement walkway
    along the beach popular with joggers bikers and dog
    walkers has the most expensive luxury real
    estate in Manhattan Beach with prices ranging up to $50 million plus. Most properties can boast unblockable ocean view is that can see
    the whitewater breaking on the shore. East-west slots on the Strand are
    usually 33 by 100 feet The El Porto neighborhood in North
    Manhattan Beach is a mix of businesses and multi-family unit properties. It has the highest residential density
    in Manhattan Beach so lots are small and many are duplexes or triplexes. A walk street is a pedestrian-only street, no through traffic. Walk streets foster a sense of community
    among neighbors encouraging interaction and enjoyment of the outdoors. First
    built in 1913, walk streets in the Sand Section are quiet, charming and perfect for family outings. Homes on the North Walk streets are on sloped lots with big views of the ocean, while South walk streets are often on flat
    lots without ocean views. The downtown area which runs along
    the main drag in Manhattan Beach Boulevard has great shops restaurants and more. The Green Belt, which divides Valley and Ardmore Avenue is called Veterans Parkway which is the eastern boundary of the Sand Section. In
    addition to the Green Belt the Sand Section has three other parks: Live Oak Park, Sand Dune Park and Bruce’s Beach that are open to the public year-round for picnics and outdoor fun. One fun fact about our beaches is that in
    the nineteen twenties and thirties the soft sand from Manhattan Beach was
    sent to Hawaii to line the tropical shores of Waikiki’s resorts. For these reasons and so much more,
    that’s why the Sand sections is such a desirable place to live. If you have any questions or would
    like to receive more information about the Sand Section or Manhattan Beach in
    general feel free to give us a call. Don’t forget
    to check out the rest of Manhattan Beach neighborhood videos. I’m Greg Geilman thanks for watching

    High-tech ship en route to resume hunt for MH370

    January 14, 2020

    High-tech ship en route to resume hunt for MH370 The Malaysia Airlines jet disappeared in March 2014 with 239 people — mostly from China — on board en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing after diverting from its flight path. No sign of the plane was found in a 120,000 square kilometre (46,000 square mile) search zone selected by satellite analysis of the jets likely trajectory. The sea search — the largest in aviation history — was called off in January last year but looks set to resume soon. Exploration firm Ocean Infinity said it was sending a research vessel to the zone in the southern Indian Ocean and hopes to finalise a deal with the Malaysian government to restart the hunt in the coming days. We are moving the vessel, Seabed Constructor, towards the vicinity of the possible search zone, a spokesman for the company told AFP. This is designed to save time should the contract award be forthcoming, as hoped. The Norwegian research vessel being leased by Ocean Infinity set off from South Africa and was aiming to arrive in the search area by mid-January. The firm wants to start the hunt, which will be on a no find, no fee basis, during a period of good weather expected in January and February. The vessel is carrying several autonomous submarines which can be launched from the ship to scour the seabed for the jet. Malaysias Deputy Transport Minister Aziz Kaprawi confirmed negotiations with Ocean Infinity were in the final stages: They know we are very serious in taking their offer. Ocean Infinity was one of three companies which had bid to resume the hunt. Australias national science body CSIRO released a report in April suggesting the doomed plane was most likely north of the former search zone in an area of approximately 25,000 square kilometres. Only three confirmed fragments of MH370 have been found, all of them on western Indian Ocean shores, including a two-metre wing part known as a flaperon.

    National Fish & Chip Awards 2016 – The Top 10

    January 14, 2020

    [Music plays]>>I got into fish and chips all by accident.
    I was at an Irish wake!>>I was born into it!>>Fish was always in our blood.>>I happened to be visiting my dad.>>Saw a gap in the market really and I thought I wanted
    to do a fish and chip shop that was slightly different.>>I had friends of mine who had
    been in the trade 40 years.>>So I started doing a Tuesday and Thursday night for
    my father. At that time I was living on a pig farm.>>I just got a full time job as a fryer, I started seeing
    Linda, and then it just went on from there. [Music plays]>>Right across these islands fish and chips is
    very important and you’ll always know the best fish and chip shop wherever you live, I think.>>It’s an iconic British delicacy.
    Who doesn’t love it?>>Love the staff here.
    Absolutely love working here.>>I just love the daily challenges.
    No two days are the same.>>I’m just really excited to be here.>>I just absolutely love fish and chips to be honest with
    you. I eat them every day – if Linda’s not listening! [Music plays]>>We have to have a bar where everyone
    is going to aim for, and I think the Fish and Chip Shop of the Year
    competitions are that bar.>>The awards have raised the profile of fish
    and chips over the last few years. Anybody that enters soon gets to know that
    this is good for our business.>>So when we got the call to say that we were
    in the Top 10 we were all absolutely, really overwhelmed – really happy.>>It was my goal since I started doing fish
    and chips for the last 6 years is really one to do in Wales. So when I had the phone call –
    that was the best feeling. I’ve had 4 kids and it’s almost as good as that. [Music plays]>>The industry’s changed massively since I
    started in 1984. There was no VAT on fish and chips back then, which was great! [Music plays]>>It’s a highly skilled job. It takes a long
    time to be able to do it properly, and it’s one of those products that, if
    it’s not done properly, you can really tell. [Music plays]>>People don’t understand the amount of work
    that goes into it. We have customers coming in in an evening, saying
    “Crikey, I saw you – you’ve had a long day! “I saw you coming in at 8 o’clock this
    morning!” [Music plays]>>Getting involved with Seafish and with the
    National Fish and Chip Awards has just given me – you know, new life for the industry. [Music plays]>>I think it’s fantastic for the young people
    to be joining the industry. You can get apprenticeships now for fish and chip shops and people
    are looking at it in a different way now.>>You know, the image of it several years
    ago is completely different to as it is now. [Music plays]>>Pride, care and passion about what you’re
    doing is utmost, you know. We won’t serve anything that we wouldn’t eat ourselves.
    We’ve got a slogan: “If it don’t make you proud,
    don’t serve it to the crowd” [Music plays]>>When customers come in and they see that
    we really take an interest in the traceability of where we’re getting our fish from,
    and they saw that we’ve been to Norway this year; they saw that I
    went to the Faroe Islands; customers are really impressed with that. [Music plays]>>The quality’s got to be there in the ingredients.
    The freshness of the fish, the right variety of the fish and the
    right variety of potatoes, and that’s in essence fish and chips. But there’s a lot more to
    it than just simple cod and chips. [Music plays]>>We care about sustainable food because we
    want to keep our business running for more generations, yeah.>>We’d like to pass it on to our children,
    wouldn’t we? And I think that’s one of the things that you want to be able to –
    not only feed your children – but give them a job as well! [Music plays]>>There’s always room to improve. Always.
    From the staff, from the food…>>The shops have now wised up to what we’re
    looking for and the shop standard this year (2016) is very, very high.>>It started as soon as it ended last year basically>>So in June you send off your paperwork>>And then we were Mystery Shopped a couple
    of times and then you get through to the top 60>>After that you get put into regions and
    you go down into the top 20>>We has an audit by Seafish; they came through;
    had a look at the kitchens; had a look at what we do and how we it.
    And that was tough.>>So everybody’s a bit on edge from June until
    the awards in January.>>You are! You don’t actually sleep!>>Yes, I’m on edge, OK; I’m on edge! [laughs]>>You wake up in the middle of the night sweating!>>Cut that! [laughs]>>Any different type of PR about fish and
    chips is good for our business, but the awards in particular are amazing.
    It’s the Oscars of fish and chips!>>To win the awards would just be the pinnacle
    of our career.>>The journey has been fantastic and I have
    to say it, thanks to Seafish for providing that platform. And now it’s up to us.>>We’re all very good operators and we all
    serve cracking fish and chips. I guess any one of the 10 could win.>>Yes we’re competing against each other,
    but if you look at the bigger picture, it’s all fantastic for the industry.>>And we’re all in it for the same reasons;
    we’re all in it for fish and chips.>>Oh it’d be a dream to come in the top 3.
    That would be, to me, like being knighted.>>To me, winning that is something out of
    this world for us.>>I’ve done this for 31 years; never won it,
    so it would be special, yeah.>>We’re all winners. We’ve got this far. But
    if we were to actually get the number one spot, wow, I think you wouldn’t need any media;
    I’d be shouting it from the rooftops!>>I had planned to get out of it in year 25
    and guess what’s happened? I keep saying “Next year, next year, next year”.
    I’ll probably be carried out of here in a box. With a twist of lemon
    and some tartar sauce.
