Approved trout waters offer good summer fishing
News from Reading Eagle:

The weather is hot and most of Pennsylvania’s approved trout waters have water temperatures that put trout in a lethargic mood. But these waters may still be fished and fished hard.

Summer is a great time to explore the lower stretches of Pennsylvania’s approved trout waters. Anglers may be pleasantly surprised by the number of fish that can be caught and the size of these fish. Flies, bait or lures will all work if you just cater your offering to the fish you’d like to catch.

Carp can weigh anywhere from a few pounds to 20 or more. They can be found in deeper holes and at times will enter shallow water to feed or play.

Corn, worms, crayfish tails and flies can fool a carp. Be sneaky though: Carp are very skittish and spooking one fish will usually put the entire pod down.

There are three types of carp that an angler might catch: common carp, mirror carp (has a few scales on the body, like patches) and leather carp (no scales).

Redbreast sunfish are vibrantly colored fish. They are great table fare and can reach 10 inches in length. They will pretty much hit anything you throw at them: worms, small jigs, spinners and spoons.

For example, Palestinian territorial waters off the coast of the Gaza Strip as defined by the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, should extend to 12 nautical miles (22.2 km or 13.8 miles) but the Israeli navy enforces a six mile limit, sometimes even five and a half miles, for Gaza’s fishermen. In addition, the Israeli occupation authorities often make petty and spiteful “security” excuses to reduce the already reduced fishing limit to three miles.

On top of that, Palestinian fisherman are harassed by the Israeli navy on a daily basis; their boats are fired upon, sunk and confiscated, and the fishermen themselves are often arrested if they are not killed or wounded in the process. All of this, of course, has an impact on the amount of fish caught off the Gaza coast, which should be a rich fishing ground. Catching more and larger fish requires sailing into international waters, as fishermen from other countries do.

Palestinian investors in Gaza have thus resorted to fish farming. Speaking to MEMO, Yasser Al-Haj said that he invested in this sector for pers…………… continues on Middle East Monitor
