SAN ANTONIO — A San Antonio man fishing in Port Aransas on Sunday reeled in an 809-pound tiger shark.
Ryan Spring, a deck installer from the Alamo City, caught the massive fish, which was 12 feet 7 inches in length, about five miles off the Texas coast using stingray wing as bait, he said.
“After five hours of fighting it, I finally saw it for the first time,” Spring told the San Antnion Express-News on Monday. I was surprised it was a tiger shark, I thought it was a hammerhead.”
The battle, which started around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, lasted nearly eight hours before he tied the shark to the boat, he said.

A fisherman got an extra special surprise in his daily catch last week…
Bjørn Frilund, 64, is a master baiter in his local village of Eidsbygda, Norway. He was slacking his line one morning when his attention got tugged to one of the cod in his fishing nets, according to the photo database WENN.
According to The Local, Frilund was processing some of the fish he had just caught, when he felt a lump in the belly of a cod. What, oh what could that be, he wondered?
He quickly inserted his knife into the fish’s orifices, and found a big, pink sex toy. He swears it wasn’t his.
“The fish probably thought the dildo was a small octopus, and ate it”, says Frilund. The fish was filleted and given away, while the dildo remains at Frilund’s house as part of a fishing heirloom for his family.
Ladies. Please don’t think for one second that this is acceptable reverse substitution for you to make. Cephalopods do not make good sexual aids. Don’t even ask me how I know that.

Sorry, had to throw that in there
Want more weird news?
After a long, cold winter, the weather is warming up (finally!). The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, romance is in the air…and all you can think of is fishing. But what if you have a significant other you’d like to share your passion with? Here’s how can you turn a day fishing trip into a romantic date.
Set the mood with your invitation

Most women aren’t going to be enthusiastic about going fishing, the first step to create romance is the right words. When she thinks fishing trip, she thinks mess – bait, guts, blood, stink, make her think more of a romantic date.
When you invite her, talk about spending a day on the water, the beautiful scenery, the peacefulness of the outdoors. Make it sound like a romantic retreat than a day spent gutting fish.
What to bring
If your idea of food for a fishing trip is a six-pack of beer and a big bag of Cheetos, forget it. Make the most of your day with a real picnic.
Pack sexy food:
- Succulent strawberries, juicy grapes, cool, refreshing melon
- Sandwich fixings (not bologna on white bread!) or finger foods, all packed separately so nothing gets soggy.
- Bite-sized pastries (relax, you can buy them at any grocery or Walmart)
- Beverages are up to you. Whatever you both like, plus water and a non-alcoholic choice or two for variety.
Other stuff that should be on the list:
- Sharp knife
- Trash bag
- Sunscreen and bug spray
- Cooler – food poisoning is not sexy!
- Corkscrew or bottle opener
- First aid kit (just in case)
- Napkins, cups, and plastic cutlery
Bring along a stainless steel spoon to help remove fish smell from hands (you could buy one of those stainless steel soaps, but a spoon works just fine), and scented lotion to finish cleanup.
Pack two blankets – one to sit on and another to snuggle in if the weather turns chilly. Then hope for chilly.
Pick a romantic location
In this case, a great fishing date spot isn’t where you’re going to catch the most fish. Catching a mess of fish isn’t the point today. But you don’t want to get skunked either. Crank up the intimacy with a romantic fishing spot that offers beauty, solitude, and comfort. Taking her breath away with the scenery is a wonderful way to start the day.
Let her participate at her own level. Encourage, but don’t push. She may be as eager as you are to bait her own hook, cast, land her own catch, and to gut and scale the fish for an on-the-spot cookout (cold cuts? what cold cuts?). Or she may be happy to watch and absorb.
Bone up on fishing knowledge
Knowledge can be downright sexy when presented right. You aren’t Bubba from Forrest Gump. Don’t drone on and on about lures or 500 ways to cook fish. Learn something about the fish you’re after and be prepared with some interesting tidbits and answers to her questions.
Tell an endearing story
Romance is all about what you’re willing to share. Skip the tall fish tales and tell a personal story about fishing with your dad instead. Be yourself and keep it light. You want her to smile and feel closer to you, not feel sorry for you.

If you don’t have a family experience to relate, go with an introspective story about why you love the outdoors. Sharing something personal will make her feel close to you..and maybe encourage her to get close to you.
Day-to-day romance lies in the little things. While you can’t plan spontaneity, you can look for opportunities to surprise and delight your date. Wildflowers in a water bottle, music on your iPhone, maybe a silly selfie uploaded to Instagram…the trick is to be charming and responsive, without trying too hard.
Here’s the payoff
Maybe she’s the one. If she is, and it turns into a long-term relationship, she’ll understand how much fishing means to you. Whether she’s interested in coming along on every trip or not, she’ll get it. It’s also one of those memorable moments that form the foundation of a loving relationship. Bring the romance on your day fishing trip, and you can’t lose.
I came across this live deer webcam a few hours ago and had to share. Dillie is a farm born white tailed deer born blind and abandoned by his mother. He now lives inside with a whole family of loving people and animals. He even has his very own bedroom. If he’s not outside eating hay, playing outside or swimming in the pool, you can watch him on the webcam live below.

It’s that time of the year again to prepare your duck and goose decoys for summer storage. After a long (and hopefully successful) season of duck hunting, without a doubt your duck decoys are covered in mud and dirt, and you’ll need to wash them thoroughly before you put them away.
Cleaning your decoys can be as easy as spraying them off with a water hose, and then wiping them down with a paper towel. However, many experienced hunters caution against using soap, because it may leave an unwanted shine on the finish.
The following are some fast and easy tasks that will not only extend the life of your decoys, but will also keep them looking new and ready for the next hunting season
1. First of all, if you use decoys with flocking, you’ll need a pair of soft gloves to help remove mud or debris from the decoy without loosening the flocking.
2. Once you’ve removed a degree of mud and dirt from the flocking, the next step is to wash the decoy.
Note: Several hunters recommend a car wash because the high pressure wash cleans off some of the worst baked-on dirt from the decoys, and you can also wash a large quantity of decoys in a very short period of time.
3. After you get all the decoys clean, be sure to let each of them dry completely before you put them away (or back into the trailer).
Important: When you wash Canada goose decoys, be sure to get the white portions of the decoy as clean as possible. Because of the contrast between the black head, neck, and the white, it’s important wash the white portion thoroughly in order to get the decoys within gunning range.
4. Once your decoys have dried off completely, be sure to place them in a decoy bag and store them in a dry area.
These few simple and easy steps will add several years to the life or your decoys, and will also ensure that you and your gear will be ready when open season comes around.
Once you clean and store your decoys, the following are some additional ideas you can use in order to get them ready for future hunting excursions:
After you’ve cleaned and bagged your decoys, you’ll need to find a clean, dry place to store them. Damp decoy bags always attract mildew, and will often tear and become thread-bear over time. Also, if you have decoys with flocked heads, be sure to cover the heads with a small trash bag or a sock to avoid any damage to them.
Keep the rodents away.
Since decoys and bags can provide a nesting place for mice and other rodents, it’s essential to avoid storing your decoys in the cold, damp, areas of your home, such as the garage and basement. If you have to store decoys in the basement, be sure to hang them on the wall where they can’t be reached.
It’s essential to take good care of all your hunting gear—especially when it comes to decoys. If you follow the above guidelines, you’ll be able to get more use out of your decoys, saving you lots of money in the long run.
It may sound like a daunting task at first, but it’s always a good idea to clean and store your decoys properly so that you can use them on future hunting trips.
What animal do you think of when it comes to the most deadliest in the world? Sharks? Snakes? Humans?
Mosquitoes are the most deadliest animal. Killing more humans, no other animal even comes close.
Mosquitoes carry a wide range of diseases, with the top killer being malaria, which kills more than 600,000 people every year. Other mosquito-borne diseases include dengue fever, yellow fever, and encephalitis.
