Frog Time!

I generally loathe the dog days of summer — when it is so hot you could cook a Thanksgiving turkey by just leaving it in your car for 10 minutes.

But there is a silver lining — hot days cause all sorts of weed growth on local lakes and that means it’s time for froggin…which is a blast!

Underwater Photos: King Salmon eats a Glo Bug

More cool underwater stuff from my travels in Alaska in July: Here’s a king salmon attacking a Yarnie or Glo Bug (no eggs or scent). Though I clipped off the hook point while filming, it’s interesting to see how he would never have been hooked anyway — because the fish bites away from the hook!

Yarn and eggs…yum!
Yarn and eggs…yum!
Yep, I gotta eat that! (Although notice how he bites the yarn ball but completely misses the hook!)

No change for a hook-up here…the hook is still outside his mouth.

Trace Levels of Fukushima Radiation Found in Oregon Tuna

Well, it’s a good news-bad news type of situation: Albacore tuna caught off the Oregon coast have been found to have slightly elevated levels of radioactivity from the Fukushima Daiichi power station in Japan.

But scientists say that so far the health risk is low. In fact, you would have to consume more than 700,000 pounds of the fish with the highest radioactive level – just to match the amount of radiation the average person is annually exposed to in everyday life through cosmic rays, the air, the ground, X-rays and other sources, the authors say.

So, at this point, it looks like catching and eating tuna this year shouldn’t be an issue.
