Think you have some of these? If so, you could be in for a pay day.

If you fish, chances are, you have a tackle box full of old fishing lures sitting in your garage. Back in the day, a lot of lures were mass-produced and have almost no value today. However, there are a few diamonds in the rough, if you’re lucky enough. What makes looking for old fishing lure so fun is that you never know when one might pop up when you least expect it. After seeing these nine lures below, you may want to go check the garage.

It’s open season on Atlantic salmon as the public is urged to help mop up a salmon spill from a damaged net pen holding 305,000 fish at a Cooke Aquaculture fish farm near Cypress Island.

Lummi fishers out for chinook on Sunday near Samish, south of Bellingham Bay, were shocked to pull up the spotted, silvery-sided Atlantic salmon — escapees that turned up in their nets again Monday.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is urging the public to catch as many of the fish as possible, with no limit on size or number. The fish are about 10 pounds each. No one knows how many escaped from the floating pen, but the net had some 3 million pounds of fish in it when it imploded about 4 p.m. Saturday, said Ron Warren, fish program assistant director for the WDFW.

Jason was very surprised when the kitten trotted up to him meowing for help. The little fluff ball tried to climb his bag, demanding attention.

“She walked up to me and a friend as we were fishing. She tried to cross a two lane rural highway to the other side of the street where we were,” Jason told Love Meow.

Later they found another kitten who appeared to be her sibling. They suspected that they were abandoned. “(They were) too young to be separated from the mother.”

They couldn’t leave the kittens there so scooped them up and headed home.

Last weekend, Hurricane Harvey slammed into the coast of Texas and has been causing chaos ever since. The hurricane has now been downgraded to a Tropical Storm and has been dumping unprecedented amounts of rain for days. The destructive storm has claimed eight lives so far with more anticipated as the days go by.

In the Houston area alone, 30,000 people will be forced to leave their homes for more suitable shelter, and thousands more who will need more assistance. However, in spite of it, all these courageous Texans are not backing down and are stepping up to the plate to help their neighbors in need.

The Times-Picayune is marking the tricentennial of New Orleans with its ongoing 300 for 300 project, running through 2018 and highlighting the moments and people that connect and inspire us. Today, the series continues with the rise and fall of New Orleans’ camp culture along the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain.

THEN: Once upon a time, the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain consisted of so much unused swampland. Then, in 1831, the Pontchartrain Railroad began running, covering the five miles from Faubourg Marigny to the lakefront village known as Milneberg. In addition to becoming a booming entertainment district, as well as a cradle for the burgeoning art form of jazz, Milneburg by 1900 had spawned a sprawling colony of fishing camps built on piers over the lake. In its heyday, and well into the 20thcentury, hundreds of camps lined the shoreline along the lakefront, offering locals a taste of escape from the city and — given the lack of beaches in south Louisiana — giving rise to a uniquely New Orleans form of weekend and summer retreat.

NOW: While fishing camps still proliferate on the north shore of the lake and along various South Louisiana bayous, the days of camp life on the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans proper — just a 15-minute drive from downtown — ended in 2005, when Hurricane Katrina destroyed the last of the camps there, finishing a demolition job started by 1998’s Hurricane Georges. Where an assortment of camps once lined the shores, all that was left after the storms were naked pilings, open water and wistful memories of a bygone era.

NORTH ATLANTIC OCEAN – MARCH 3: A Haddock caught on board the Scottis trawler Carina, March 3, 2004, some 70 miles in The Atlantic off the north coast of Scotland.

Michael Field, whose book The Catch helped expose the labour and human rights abuses in New Zealand’s fishing industry, says a report out today reveals a decades-long abuse of our much-vaunted quota system, with more than twice as many fish caught as declared.

New Zealanders know the power of national utterances; we live by “clean and green” and “a great place to raise kids”.

A Malaysian minister said the Southeast Asian nation would begin to sink rogue foreign fishing vessels that trespass in its waters.

The practice began to be employed in Indonesia after Joko Widodo became that country’s president 2014. More than 200 boats have been captured, evacuated and exploded by the Indonesian military in a practice Jokowi, as he is known, has termed “shock therapy.”

“We noticed that Indonesia’s radical measures against poaching had contributed to deflation and lowered fish prices due to bountiful catches,” the Malaysian minister of agriculture and agro-based industry, Ahmad Shabery Cheek, told local media after attending a regional fisheries summit in Jakarta this week.
