    wolverine study in NW Ontario

    Matt Scrafford's job involves getting up close and personal with a notoriously elusive animal. He studies wolverines, and is currently working on a project that involves live-trapping, and tracking the animals near the town of Red Lake in northwestern Ontario. It's not easy to do — to say wolverines keep to themselves would be an understatement — but that's what Scrafford loves about the job.

    Is this line strong enough for fishing a Jig

    Braid might cost more up front but is cheaper in the end. Under all the conditions I fish, braid lasts longer. When it gets too worn I reverse it and get a few more seasons out of it.
  3. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/anglers-win-supreme-court-battle-against-u-s-billionaire-over-access-to-lakes-roads-1.4937132 A precedent-setting B.C. Supreme Court decision has ruled that the public should be able to access fishing lakes near Merritt, B.C., after years of what has been described as a "David and Goliath" legal battle. For years, the Douglas Lake Cattle Company (DLCC), the largest working ranch in Canada, owned by U.S. billionaire Stan Kroenke, and a group of determined anglers have been going head to head. Their dispute centred primarily on access to two fishing lakes and a road.

    salt water reel for muskie ?

    A well built saltwater reel would handle a muskie fight with zero issues. Many 15-20lb saltwater fish fight harder and longer than any muskie that's ever swum, not even close. However that reel might not stand up to long term casting and reeling of the large muskie baits that are often used now. The salt water reel is also likely geared for fast lure retrieves that are needed for saltwater and that would work against you as well.

    illegally introduced walleye

    And a lake with those types of fish tend to be more of a delicate balance of chemistry and organisms than most of the lakes around here that most of use are used to.

    illegally introduced walleye

    From National Geographic: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/animals/2018/10/wildlife-watch-news-forensics-fish-ear-bones-crime/?cmpid=org=ngp::mc=social::src=facebook::cmp=editorial::add=fb20181012animals-fishearbones::rid=&sf199843136=1 State biologists discovered two illegally introduced walleyes, a carnivorous species that grows to about two feet long, in Swan Lake, in northwestern Montana. The scientists had been netting for lake trout, another invasive species, when they serendipitously caught the walleyes and took them back to the lab for analysis.

    Inflatable Life Jackets

    The level of protection some foam on a pfd is going to provide is being over estimated and will not keep your face out of the water if you are unconscious. People do have the ability to make a choice, just make sure you understand what those choices are.

    Inflatable Life Jackets

    They are infinitely better than no life jacket or pfd. Another key thing to remember is that the standard pfds that are often used, if worn, will not keep an unconscious adult's face out of the water. Only life jackets do that and most of the inflatables are that (there are those belt type ones that are not life jackets). Another factor is that if the inflatable is not worn it does not count as a floatation device. I always have a standard life jacket on board for me in case I take my inflatable off and forget to put it back on. What's your life worth to you? No one plans on falling overboard.
