From NANFA DO Bullheads produce Venom? Bullheads are probably best known for the sting that can result from careless handling. That "sting" is actually a sharp cut from contacting the sharp edges of the dorsal and pectoral fins. Jim Congdon, DNR fisheries manager in Horicon, says the fins are a defense mechanism the bullheads use to prosper in lakes and waterways throughout the state. "Predators learn to avoid a sharp-finned meal," he notes. If you, like me, have had the unfortunate experience of swooping your hand into a mass of bullhead fry roaming near a boat landing, you understand how painful those sharp little fins can be. A bullhead "sting," is more painful than that of a bee, and within minutes swelling can occur.The pain can last for a week or more. Congdon explained that bullhead fry have small glands near their side fins which produce a poison that can make getting "finned" by even half-inch fry very painful. These poison glands are common throughout the catfish family. Not to worry though – the poison is not life threatening and the pain can be dulled by dabbing the wound lightly with household ammonia. Don't dab gashes or larger open cuts. Recently, Jeremy Wright, a graduate student in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Michigan, determined that there are at least 1,250 and possibly more than 1,600 species of venomous catfish in the world, including the yellow bullhead, brown bullhead, channel catfish, blue catfish, stonecat, slender madtom, and white catfish. All madtoms except the Orangefin, which is a threatened species from Virginia and North Carolina, are venomous.

I love other podcast Nerds and don’t forget September 30th is International Podcast Day Clay: So That’s it you’ve listened to a bunch of Fish Nerds when you should have been fishing! Liam: We would love to thank our Families for supporting while we podcast, go on fishing quests and do silly things that nerds do. Clay: Special thanks to the gang at Podcast MIDATLANTIC, North Country Angler.com and Hill Country Guide Service my kid Sammy (sorry I stuck ya) and Liam from https://backwoods-graphics.com/

Eating Smooth Dog Fish Are Cormorants a Conservation Win or Fishy Pest


Welcome to the Fish Nerds Today on the show! Killing Fish and Time with Hugo We are trying something new. There has been some demand for fishing reports, so we are asking listeners to call 607-378-FISH and leave a voicemail for us. Simply leave us a short (less than a minute) fishing report from wherever you are. If you own a business or charter service, you can drop your website in there too. We will play the fishing reports after each show. And we explore the question are Cormorants a conservation win or a pest. Our show is brought to you by YOU our listeners we are crowd funded through Patreon. We ask that if you like this show you head to www.patreon.com/fishnerds and give us $1 per episode. So $4 a month. This money goes directly to keeping this show going. We use the money to cover show expenses and buy good microphones and more. If you own a business and want us to mention your business on the show donate at the $25 level and we will give you a shout out. Like our friend Josh Lopes, www.lopestax.com if you are in MA and need a great accountant, he is your guy... he also is my neighbor in NH sometimes. Thai Green Curry Dogfish According to some studies smooth dogfish have more mercury than most other fish. So we need to be careful here.

Facebook convo about cormorants - I got super defensive for the birds as I tire of “Bucket Biologists” deciding who should live and die. So I spoke out before doing my homework... That said the more I read about the issue, the less I know. I have like Bi-polar cormorant control ideas... I swing from let them live, to kill a bunch and see what happens, you will hear that in my interview today. Here are some facts we need to work with According to: Sea Grant There are Thousands of cormorants nesting on Lake champlain - Compared to 35 in 1982 Cormorants aren’t considered Natives Cormorants eat on average 1lb of fish per day. Their diet is almost an exact ratio of fish species in the lake 70% yellow perch. They are opportunistic and will eat freshly stocked fish (easy targets) http://www.naturalhistorymag.com/features/19298/to-kill-a-cormorant?page=2 https://apnews.com/9e8616b00124416a9df9d3eb5b50fe78/decision-reviled-sea-birds-has-foes-feeling-helpless That’s it you’ve listened to a bunch of Fish Nerds when you should have been fishing Special thanks to Hugo Medierios for his dogfish segment an his willingness to suffer the effects of mercury poisoning for you and our friend Rob Thorne from Captain Thorny’s Fishing Charters on Lake Champlain.

John Gierach A Fly Rod of Your Own FN Book Club Episode 155


The FN Book Club is back! This month we read John Gierach's newest book "A Fly Rod of Your Own" we loved the book and we got to talk with John! This is a big deal. Thanks to Simon and Schuster for helping us set this up. John Gierach, “the voice of the common angler” (The Wall Street Journal) and member of the Fly Fishing Hall of Fame, brings his sharp sense of humor and keen eye for observation to the fishing life and, for that matter, life in general. John Gierach is known for his witty, trenchant observations about fly-fishing. In A Fly Rod of Your Own (Simon & Schuster; April 4, 2017; $25.00), Gierach once again takes us into his world and scrutinizes the art of fly-fishing. He travels to remote fishing locations where the airport is not much bigger than a garage and a flight might be held up because a passenger is running late. He sings the praises of the skilled pilots who fly to remote fishing lodges in tricky locations and bad weather. He explains why even the most veteran fisherman seems to muff his cast whenever he’s being filmed or photographed. He describes the all-but-impassable roads that fishermen always seem to encounter at the best fishing spots and why fishermen discuss four-wheel drive vehicles almost as passionately and frequently as they discuss fly rods and flies. And while he’s on that subject, he explains why even the most conscientious fisherman always seems to accumulate more rods and flies than he could ever need.
