Looks like something from Africa. I seem to remember watching a fishing show last winter and they were catching these off the east coast of africa........

That's a big tiger! I realize the photo is a joke, but it is a matter of fact that bull sharks (the most dangerous of the maneaters) have been caught up to 1,000 miles up the Mississippi River from the Gulf.

Is that the one I have seen people bowfishing for in the South? When I used to be allowed to have MOR they showed guys trolling prety fast in a boat and the fish would jump out of the water, they shoot them with the bow out of the air. I saw a few land in the boat (not shot, just landed there) and it looked pretty exciting. If given the chance I will try to thin the population...

Wouldn't it be great to fish the Amazon. When I win the lottery thats where I'm going. Peacock Bass, huge catfish, Payaras....maybe a few caimen (little crocodiles)

That would be a tiger fish, native to africa, not the amazon.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
