Now is a great time for bottom fishing the offshore waters off of southeastern North Carolina, with mahi-mahi, cobia, grouper and various bottom fish hitting well. Captain Keith Logan of Feedin Frenzy Charters out of Holden Beach has been reporting fantastic fishing.

We also caught a few nice size shark that we released. While we were bottom fishing a 30 lb cobia swam by the boat looking around, so we got a pitch bait out and it was on for the next …

Ecological Impact of Plastic Lures: Fishing Responsibly by Using Alternatives for Soft Lure Baits

It is a matter of course that fishing involves the use of sinkers and lures. The toxic effects of lead in the environment are well documented, but the use of soft plastic fishing lures has not widely been considered a source of marine debris. The American Sportfishing Association documented expenditures by recreational fishers in 2006 for lures, flies, and artificial baits totaled $902.7 million. Some projections claim 25 million soft plastic lures are lost in the field each year.

Ecological Impact of Soft Plastic Lures

Plastic is one of the chief culprits in problems associated with marine debris. It is long lived in the environment and takes hundreds of years to degrade. Soft plastic fishing lures are designed to attract fish, and they break into small, easy to ingest pieces with time.

Another environmental issue tied to use of soft plastic lures is their composition. A plasticizer, comprising a large …

Fishing for New Job Opportunities

Job searching seems like a simple concept but does require some forethought about how you are going to approach the act of finding another job. There are two different philosophies when it comes to job searching. You can bring a pole or you can bring a net when fishing for jobs.

When we use a pole we typically go to the best places to find the fish. We will spend considerable amount of time researching where the best fish hang out, what type of lure to use and what methods we should use to catch them. Even though we don’t catch a lot of fish we are more likely to catch the big one.

A narrow search for a job is a lot like fishing with a pole. Some people prefer only to apply to those jobs which fit their criteria perfectly. They spend a lot of time reading the …
