Another one bites the dust!!!

Recommended Posts

It always saddens me when I read about true trophies that end up in a fisherman's net.

I know there isn't a lot of pressure on our fish up here but it takes too long to replace a fish like this. :(

I clipped this article from yesterdays paper.

Look at it this way, that thing just made way for like 6 good eaters. And if like the expert said it may not be reproducing, it really was just taking up space.

 

Sad day perhaps for people who want to hang something on the wall, great day for the ecosystem of GSL.

thats a tough call.

 

If I caught a fish over 50 lbs, potentially being a record......I'd like to think I would release her.

 

The scales most people carry usually only go to 50lbs, so you couldn't even get an accurate #. A fish with such a disproportionate belly will most likely estimate accurately with girth & length measurements.

I think some are missing this was caught in a net... it was D>O>A !

 

 

Exactly!

 

I'd like to see the scientists have at her to determine the particulars and history of this beast.

The one they mentioned from Athabaska was 102 lbs. The mount hung in the ROM for years but that was a long time ago. I saw it way back when, last time probably more than 40 years ago. Apparently, it had no gonads so it was technically sexless.

It's tough to lose a fish like that, but there are no survivors when it comes to commercial fishing.

It doesn't have to breed to be someone's trophy, that fish could have provided a few anglers with the PB laker over the next decade. Why does everything have to be biological when placing value on wildlife?

I hear you Drifter!

      Ok, so the only thing missing is the kitchen sink LOL. My son and I had another wonderful weekend, did some fishing, exploring, and harvested some beaked hazelnuts. My CFMOTO is a year old now and I have to say I am super impressed, some of the trails we explored this weekend were through some pretty rough therein and this thing just eats it up. The power steering sure is a blessing for these old arms! We actually managed to wind our way through some very old logging trails, some place

    • Espanola? Any one local?

      Welcome to summer all!!! (well sort-of) Heading up with a buddy and his young lad to the Espanola area for a few days mid July. Have a few lakes I am looking at but having a devil of a time finding any real reports of the fishing (which I suppose is good). Our plan is to target Wally's and possibly trek in for a brookie or 2 if the logistics of the lakes work out. My buddies kid is just old enough to come with us so this isn't going to be hard core adventure. But we do intend to camp out th
