    Thomas Knight with the enormous lake trout that broke New Hampshire's 62-year-old state record for the largest lake trout. (CNN)When Thomas Knight set out on the ice to go fishing for lake trout, he was determined to haul in a big one. He came prepared with an 11-inch sucker because big bait attracts big fish, he said. But what he reeled in was bigger than anything he could have imagined. Knight, of Meredith, New Hampshire, caught a lake trout last Tuesday that weighed in at 37.65 pounds, easily breaking the state record that was more than 60 years old. The...

The trend is thought to have emerged in response to seasonal changes...
  • ‘A Big Old Fish!’ 350-Pound Warsaw Grouper Caught in Southwest Fla.

    A Florida fisherman’s gargantuan catch is reeling in a lot of chatter online. “A big old fish!” the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation exclaimed on Facebook, next to a photo of the fisherman standing by the 350-pound Warsaw grouper. The massive fish was caught by hook-and-line in Southwest Florida, according to the FWC. It’s estimated to be 50 years old, making it the oldest sample collected for the FWC’s program. The grouper was caught in 600 feet of water, biologists said. Warsaw groupers are usually found in waters over 200 feet deep, although juveniles can be found inshore, around jetties...

    According to radiocarbon dating, when the bigmouth buffalo was born, World War I had not yet broken out in Europe. Scientists just added a large, sucker-mouthed fish to the growing list of centenarian animals that will likely outlive you and me. A new study using bomb radiocarbon dating describes a bigmouth buffalo that lived to a whopping 112 years, crushing the previous known maximum age for the species—26—by more than fourfold. That makes the bigmouth buffalo, which is native to North America and capable of reaching nearly 80 pounds, the oldest age-validated freshwater bony fish—a group that comprises roughly 12,000...

    Thousands of dead fish are floating in the Kentucky River after a 23-mile-long spill of alcohol was dumped into the water during a huge fire at a Jim Beam bourbon warehouse. The environmental disaster occurred after water from firefighters' hoses used to put out the blaze ran off into the river, carrying some of the 45,000 barrels of whisky that went up in smoke with it. The Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet (EEC) said in a statement on Sunday that the leading edge of the alcohol plume was between Owenton and Carrollton, where the Kentucky river drains into the Ohio...

    A new invasive parasite in the San Marcos and Comal rivers is becoming a bigger and bigger problem — it infects fish and makes them unable to swim. Researchers at Texas State University have identified the Haplorchis pumilio — a worm whose larvae can cause all sorts of bodily harm to fish, including an endangered species unique to Texas springs... The source of the parasitic problem originates with an invasive Asian snail, identified by its distinctive spiral shell, which was introduced into local springs in the mid-20th Century. The likely source of the snails was aquarium dumping by local residents....

    Kim Jong-un has allegedly executed a general by throwing him into 'a piranha-filled fish tank.' The general, whose name has not been named, was accused of planning a coup but ended up as the latest victim of the newly developed execution method, according to the Daily Star. It is reported that the giant fish tank was built inside Kim's Ryongsong Residence. The victim had his arms and torso cut open with knives before he was thrown into the tank, it is alleged.

    Whipple told WJCL an animal about 4 feet in diameter that was “gray on top, white on the bottom with this weird face,” came out “like a rocket” and knocked Dixon off the jet ski. McDaniel jumped into the water after the accident to help keep Dixon from drowning. They flagged down a pontoon boat, which then took Dixon to land. Dixon suffered broken ribs, a concussion and injuries to his lungs, back and neck, according to his brother. He was spent two days in Savannah Memorial Hospital’s ICU and was released. Authorities credit the quick response by Whipple and...

    There's room for all types in a newly described fossil that shows 259 baby fish swimming together in a school, approximately 50 million years ago. According to the authors of a new study published Wednesday (May 29) in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, this ex-school may be the earliest known fossil evidence that prehistoric fish swam in unison, just as modern fish do today. A team of Arizona researchers stumbled upon this remarkable rock during a visit to the Oishi Fossils Gallery of Mizuta Memorial Museum in Japan. Working with the museum, the researchers determined that the...

    Hanna Mary was strolling along a beach with her mom and pup close behind when she spotted what she first believed was plastic sheeting. After a rough storm hit Canterbury, New Zealand, last week, Mary anticipated piles of "rubbish" would wash ashore. But when she inspected the bizarre-looking object Saturday at a Rakaia Huts beach, shrieking after she realized it wasn't just another piece of trash — it was the skeleton of an "alien"-like critter. "When I pulled it out and saw all the teeth and barbs I was convinced it was a rare deep sea creature," Mary told Fox News. "I...

    The conditions under which early lifeforms originated and exploded into the many animal groups we see today is a mystery that has confounded scientists for decades. New research suggests shallow marine environments were a critical testbed for these early animals, providing the perfect space for them to evolve the physical characteristics required for them to move beyond their nearshore cradle.

    Activists upset with Sen. Susan Collins’s vote to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh say they will inflict economic damage on the Republican senator's home state by boycotting Maine products and tourism. “Dear Susan Collins – I really struggled with this but my tourist $ just voted against ever visiting Maine while you remain in office,” actor and comedian John Fugelsang said Friday in a tweet that has since been deleted, according to the Portland Press Herald. The tweet garnered hundreds of comments saying they would join Fugelsang in the boycott, with one person canceling a $2,200 reservation at Point...
