World Record Size 11-pound, 4-ounce Spotted Bass Landed

World Record Spotted Bass Catch
World Record Spotted Bass Catch

 

Nick Dulleck landed an 11-pound, 4-ounce spotted bass in California with his buddy Adam McAndrews on a weekend birthday fishing trip to New Bullards Bar Reservoir. He caught, documented and weighed before releasing an 11-pound, 4-ounce spotted bass on the now famed fishery. The fish measured 24 1/2 inch long with a 20 3/4-inch girth.  Caught on 02/14/2017.

The spotted base was caught on a Dirty Jigs Finesse Football jig with a Yamamoto Double Tail trailer. Pictured here are a couple of Dulleck’s favorited pairings for bass fishing from Dirty Jigs and Yamamoto, although he’s reluctant to give up the exact color for which the record spot fell for obvious reasons.

When fishing clear and deep water, the use of very realistic and detailed soft plastics has become the norm. Dirty Jigs now provides the same option in a jig with their Tour Level Finesse Football Jig. Premium powder coat finishes provide added realism and the skirts come full length, giving you the option to use the full skirt or trim the front to achieve a slim spider-cut profile. Also featuring a 60-degree flat line-eye Mustad Ultra Point 1X Strong Jig Hook with new 4.3 Microsharp Point Technology, the Dirty Jigs Tour Level Finesse Football Jig is a proven performer available at a great price.

The Yamamoto Double Tail Grubs make great jig trailers or they can be added to a Yamamoto Skirt to create your own spider jig color combination. If you’re looking to improve your odds with a spinnerbait, the Yamamoto Double Tail Grubs make for great trailers as well, and allow you to slow down your retrieve by adding a little extra bulk and resistance to your presentation. The added disturbance created by both tails really lets fish hone in on your bait. The soft supple plastic used in all Yamamoto Baits gives the Double Tail Grubs a great action and a realistic feel to lure fish in and make them hold on longer. Available in a wide range of Yamamoto colors, there is a Yamamoto Double Tail Grub perfect for any situation.

Yoda’s Ten Best Quotes

 

Yoda was a legendary Jedi Master and stronger than most in his connection with the Force. Small in size but wise and powerful, he trained Jedi for over 800 years, playing integral roles in the Clone Wars, the instruction of Luke Skywalker, and unlocking the path to immortality.

For centuries the Ark of the Covenant has been sought after. It’s where-abouts have been long speculated to be on just about every continent. Now research is starting to shed some light on the possibility that the arm may be in America.

 




The petroglyph from Puerco River in Arizona looks strangely like the AoC.

Note the symbols on top which resemble the Cherubim on the Mercy Seat at the top of the Ark.

Harbor Opening – May 19 – 21
Seward Harbor Opening Weekend (SHOW) has been a local tradition for years, with businesses rolling out the red carpet in mid-to late May. Local residents get in on the action as well, swabbing decks and checking lines as we celebrate the arrival of the outdoor season to our shores.

Harbor activity abounds on Saturday and Sunday, when you can share in the blessing of the fleet, or watch the boat parade. Walk the docks and keep your eyes peeled for otter and sea lions who are hoping for their own fresh catch. Other activities in and around the marina include business open houses and specials.

It is the beginning of the season, so don’t forget to bring your boat with you and get that Coast Guard safety inspection done.

The Beautiful Blue Morpho Butterfly

Blue Morpho Butterfly
Blue Morpho Butterfly

Blue Morpho Butterfly

As its common name implies, the blue morpho butterfly’s wings are bright blue, edged with black. The blue morpho is among the largest butterflies in the world, with wings spanning from five to eight inches. Their vivid, iridescent blue coloring is a result of the microscopic scales on the backs of their wings, which reflect light. The underside of the morpho’s wings, on the other hand, is a dull brown color with many eyespots, providing camouflage against predators such as birds and insects when its wings are closed. When the blue morpho flies, the contrasting bright blue and dull brown colors flash, making it look like the morpho is appearing and disappearing. The males’ wings are broader than those of the females and appear to be brighter in color. Blue morphos, like other butterflies, also have two clubbed antennas, two fore wings and two hind wings, six legs and three body segments — the head, thorax and abdomen.
