Cochrane Times - As part of our Aussie Adventure, my husband Reice and I went deep sea fishing on the Indian Ocean.
There's that old adage about a picture being worth a thousand words and I'm sure the picture of Reice with his catch, and $200 prize money for the best fish, is a perfect example. There is, however, another side to the story that isn't in the picture the non-fisherperson perspective. I'd like to share my side of the story and thank goodness there is no picture to send.
It starts out with having to get up at 5:30 a.m.
Maybe it's just me, but it sure seems that many people who vacation in the Keys never actually experience them. Visitors owe it to themselves to do at least these two things before heading home:
First, spend some time enjoying our beautiful reefs. If you can swim, take part in a snorkeling trip. If you can't swim, a glass-bottom boat excursion will work. Just get out there and take in one of the most spectacular sights in all of North America, our living coral reef.
Second, a visitor to our island chain really ought to take a trip into the backcountry. You will marvel at the wildlife all around.
Judge: DNA Can Be Used in Peterson Case
MODESTO, Calif. - A pathologist who examined Laci Peterson's badly decomposed body testified Monday that he could find no evidence of wounds and could not determine what weapon may have been used to kill her.
Testifying for the prosecution at a preliminary hearing for Scott Peterson, forensic pathologist Dr. Brian Peterson, no relation to the couple, said Laci Peterson's neck, head, forearms and one of her feet were missing.
He attributed the poor condition of the body to exposure to saltwater and sea creatures.
Dr. Peterson said that her abdomen was worn away, but that there was no evidence she had given birth.
The spectacular Sulu Sulawesi Seas
Six of the word's eight species of sea turtles can be found here--the leatherback, green, olive ridley, hawksbill, loggerhead, and flatback. Manta rays cruise the ocean bottom or occasionally leap from the surface. Water monitors and saltwater crocodiles also visit the marine habitats. Eight cetaceans are from these two seas: the spinner, spotted, bottlenose, Risso's, and Fraser's dolphins, as well as the short-finned pilot whale, dwarf sperm whale, and Curvier's beaked whale. The endangered dugong, a cousin to the manatee, is known to feed in the area.
Other names: pike, northern, jack, jackfish, snake, great northern pike, great northern pickerel, American pike, common pike, Great Lakes pike; Danish: gedde; Dutch: snoek; French: brochet; Finnish: hauki; German: hecht; Hungarian: csuka; Italian: luccio; Norwegian: gjedde; Portuguese: lcio; Russian: shtschuka; Spanish: lucio; Swedish: gddo.
Malevolent-looking and spear-shaped, the northern pike might well have been named "water wolf." Often likened to the notoriously vicious barracuda of saltwater, it is the namesake member of the Esocidae family of pikes.

MODESTO, Calif. (AP) -- More than 240 calls were made between Scott Peterson and his girlfriend, Amber Frey, during the weeks before and after Peterson's wife, Laci, disappeared, an investigator testified Tuesday.
Peterson and Frey spoke as often as 16 times a day between Nov. 19 and Feb. 19, including calls on Christmas Eve, when Peterson said his wife disappeared while he was fishing, and on Valentine's Day, Stanislaus County investigator Steve Jacobson said. There were very few days when there weren't calls between their phones, he said.
Fish That Glo Your Mind
All hail the GloFish: The heir to the Day-Glo poster, the strobe
light and the lava lamp and, if a Texas company has its way, the first
genetically engineered household pet.
Transgenic zebrafish, which glow with the intensity of radioactive
isotopes, were designed to detect toxic substances in the environment, but
such an application was commercially limited. If you're talking fish and
profits, you have to talk supermarket seafood counters and restaurants -- or
pet stores. And at a maximum length of a few inches, zebrafish won't make it
to very many catch-of-the-day specials.

Clean trout and soak for 12 to 16 hours in a solution of water, canning salt, and brown sugar. Remove fish from the brine solution and allow salt water to drain completely. Smoke in a smoker until fish are golden brown. Smoking usually takes six to eight hours.

As the owner of WindRush Farms fishing resort, Quint Drennan has met nearly every sort of trout fisher, and he has swapped some rather creative trout recipes with the anglers he has met.
"That's one thing that is fun," says Drennan. "We do swap recipes.

Yacht expedition in Sea of Cortes one whale of a journey
SEA OF CORTES, Mexico - Seventy percent of Earth's surface is covered with water, we learn in school, and 97 percent of that water is in the oceans.
That computes to about 138 million square miles of saltwater spread around the globe - a gee-whiz fact for sure, but so what?
Consider this: Beneath the surface of the seas swim at least 4,000 representatives of the largest living species on Earth, the blue whale.
So endangered are these creatures that the random chance of seeing a mature behemoth pop its head up is about 1 in a number with too many digits to fit on the face of a calculator.
