  1. I have the same reels.Good .GREAT for attracting loons IMO. The spring broke in the same reel 2x.I fished them ,for 10-15 yrs,only issue the noise.When Frenchy's went up in smoke,i bought complete sets for $25.00 .Smoke damaged...Still have 2 left..
  2. Give Brunsie a shout out .He was looking last year..My memory is the shits,i think he said they don't make them anymore..
  3. You should try & post that on the AB.Outdoorsman forum..
  4. Don: May remember this.Anyways was at a mtg.in either Edmonton or Red Deer,when the chair told us of the illegal stocking of Bullhead fish,in a pond in FT.Mac[2015].F&W had to bring in a tech person from the US.Because none of our F&W staff knew how to handle Roetone.They killed of that pond off & trained appropriate{F &W] staff on the handling of Roetone.To this day the only other place that i have heard Roetoned ,were in the town of Okotoks.That town killed of a pond infested with goldfish,because they didn't want them getting into the Bow/Highwood/Sheep drainage.They did this at the towns cost..So F&W staff are trained & still no action.Why. Is it costs.Then have a habitat regeneration fund ,dedicated specifially to iradicating invasive fish species.If they are not to be in a said lake.Then action should be taken...FT.MAC eg.happened in 2 days........
  5. Once the hordes of dog owners,at the dog parks by the bow.Incounter them ,the screams will come out,they stink,drown my dog,killed my dog etc.They won't be so fricken cute then..
  6. On feb 2 didn't that rodent say 6wks til spring.looks like it might have been right.First gopher sighting this am.
  7. So how many of you took note of, his sly remarks.About possibly adding up to 2 dams between Calgary & the mountains[Bow Basin]..He claimed that is was all about flood mitigation for Calgary.I always believed there was more methodology to.There huge drawdowns ,K.Lakes & Ghost assessing these structures were part of it.They have gone against many suggestions for there so called Dry pond,west Springbank.Flooding valuable farm land.Rather than fllooding the Mclean creek area.Is part of there logic for this thinking.Flooding Mclean creek,then they have to find another area for these wknd warriors to destroy.Heck all the taxes gained from licences,OHV sales,fuel etc.Versus flooding out a few land rich farmers.Remember the 3 rivers project,water for the farmers...Getting really tired of winter
  8. Winter,is it ever going to break.Heck i have fished in open water at Police on occasion.April1 .Reports of winterkill are surfacing.Spring lake,Hillar's res,Severn dam.I'm sure that it will be quite extensive this year..
  9. Remember the post about " Is It Time" I had many suggestions from a lot of people.Brought these suggestions to the heads of both organizations[ACA.F&W] to where our licence fees go.The intend was to get it in writing as a proposal for a regulation change[November].It was met with ,the usual response.But i am hopeful.It appears that even the NDP,were NOT in favor of raising,licence fees,for all.Having seniors pay & utilizing these extra fees ,for aerators .In lakes that are aerated,for some that aren't .ie Bullshead ......Hoping something comes out of the efforts
  10. I would sure like to see fisheries do a survey on our trout lakes.Reg changes for some lakes are needed..
  11. tHERE ARE A NUMBER OF YOU TUBE VIDEO'S,HOW TO CLEAN CUT,PICKLE ETC. Then of course a slip of a knife,a stomp,with a gentle toss.*hit hawks,ravens,coyotes will love you..
  12. Smitty; You asked about winterkill/aerators.Doubtful for both.The res. is deceptively deep.South end[dam] somewhere btwn 25-35' deep.It can be dangerous imo.The east shoreline bt launch was 10-15',but go 200' south,on east shore[bank]20+'.Years ago we fished in the back pocket,kinda south of the launch.You go along that east shore & left.Bloodworms consistent action,til the wind blew us off.I believe they started with browns,a couple of years ago.To see if they to would also persue the Prussian Carp.The addition of Tigers should present some quality angling.I think there is now 4 species of trout in there..
  13. I myself like the inclusion of Tigers.Will they control the invasives,it's better than them sitting on there laurels.Like all govt's have been doing in AB.Adds another oppurtune species to a lake.When Tigers are in the mood they'll eat damn near anything.Good job fisheries staff.!!
  14. i HOPE YOUR TALKING ABOUT THE PERMIT.iF YOUR A SENIOR,THAT'S ANOTHER STORY.SENIORS HAVE NO LIC. & NO WIN CARD.SO IF THOSE WHO POSSESS THE PERMIT,THEY MAY FISH THE QLF LAKES.HOW DO WE GET THE SENIORS TO PAY ??? IF WE WENT WITH SAY A PERMIT FOR QLF 'S.I BELIEVE YOUR GOING TO HAVE TO ALLOW A PERMIT HOLDER ,1 FISH UNDER 16".THIS WOULD HELP WITH STOCKING REQIREMENTS.THE BIO'S WOULDN'T HAVE TO USE GILL NETS TO GET AN EST.OF WHAT'S IN THE LAKE.BEAVER IS THE ONLY C&R OF ALL THE QLF'S. YOUR WONDERING WHY A RETENTION OF 1 UNDER 16".THIS WHAT MANITOBA DOES TO GROW THERE TROPHY LAKES. KEEP YOUR COMMENTS COMING...THANKS NOTHING IN STONE...
