What fish are native or indigenous to New Hampshire? Specifically, Lake Winnipesaukee. Well, it’s your lucky day because Ed (the Working Class Woodsman on YouTube) has the answers. He also lets Max know about the deal with the eel, particularly American Eels that make their way from Lake Winnipesaukee to the Atlantic Ocean and into the Sea of Sargasso in order to breed. This fresh water to salt water voyage makes them catadromous fish, the opposite of, for instance, salmon, which go from salt water to fresh water to spawn, and are therefore anadromous. Also why are cusk called lawyer fish?

Thanks for watching. We did have some problems recording this. Max accidentally dialed 911 from the lockscreen of his iPhone and then we also ran out of space on the memory card of Max’s camera.

In episode 2 of the Woodsman’s Podcast, Max and Ed discuss the 2018 Sportsman’s Opinion Poll in the June edition of the Maine Sportsman. Questions range from “Did you hunt with a crossbow in the past year,” to “Do you believe global warming is a real environmental threat” to “should the state end the recreational trapping of bears?”

We got through only half of the questions in this episode, so let us know in the comments (https://youtu.be/1ZsovZBrk8c) if you’d like to hear us discuss the remaining 20 or so questions next month. We will also be talking about kayak fishing next month and about picking wild berries.

To answer a question we didn’t know the answer to in the podcast, there are 43 game wardens in New Hampshire and 125 in Maine (according to the respective state websites).

The Woodsman’s Podcast will come out once a month. On the first episode Ed and Max talk about their goals for the podcast, and Ed describes a year in the life of a New Hampshire woodsman.

***When we were discussing bear hunting the stated number of bear harvested in 2017 was not accurate. The actual number was 586 not 834. There were 316 males and 270 females taken, 23% below the 764 average. Sorry for the misinformation.***

Check out https://www.backcountryhunters.org/, which Ed mentions at the end of the podcast.
