Fishing

I've been watching these shows about people who live off the grid in Alaska. They fish with nets and sometimes will catch hundreds of fish , mostly salmon. I love to fish . But we have limits on how many fish we can take . If there were no limits it wouldn't be long before there would be no more fish. Because people have no check on their appetites. A lot of the salmon caught in Alaska is used for dogfood but on one episode of Alaska Bush People they used a net to catch halibut and caught several. Enough to feed a fukkin army. How come there are no limits in Alaska like there are in the lower 48. Can't be near as much fun using a net as it is using a rod and reel. Wonder how long it will be before there are no more halibut and salmon in Alaska. Then what will the bears eat? Probably the fishermen.

There are limits of all kinds and they are rigorously enforced-don't believe everything you see on TV.

The only Salmon that's fed to Dogs is river caught Chums (and very occasionally Pinks) they are unfit for human consumption because the fat is depleted.

I enjoy those shows Milford. Like to see how you fukkers survive in that icebox. Another good show is life below zero. Damn how do people enjoy freezing their balls off.

The people you see on TV are claiming 'subsistence' exemptions. They are still regulated on limits and seasons and how they can fish/hunt but the restrictions are less than normal.

They smoke, can or salt most of the catch and store it for winter use which is required to claim a subsistence exemption. You are just assuming they ignore the rules when reality is they operate under a different set of rules. No different than the injuns here in Canada having different rules.....except the injuns here illegally sell their fish for beer money and weed.

I'd feed rainbow trout to dogs . Too many bones and impossible to filet.

Why would you bother keeping something if you aren't going to eat it. At least practice catch & release.

I usually did release the rainbows.

Kept the catfish. Cold water catfish isn't the greatest but the ex wife liked em.

I liked walleye. Hard to catch though.

Georgian bay rainbows go from the rocks at Balm beach to the BBQ at the Sunsport in about 5 minutes
bobbers and worms, in the fall...
Nice open water fish...3 to 7 lbs on average
no filleting necessary
( if you wanted to, you can lift the bones out as a package with a fork after the fish is cooked
- I do)

We get catfish - bullheads, off the bridge, in the river on the other side of town
love 'em all

...but right now, we are about to start ice fishing for perch and wallbangers...and pike
I can walk to the shack from here

I can fillet catfish, bass, crappie or walleye pretty good.. Trout need cooked whole too many small bones.

Live Minnows in less than 7' of water works every time.

Large Walleye in larger bodies of water are often suspended mid depths and need specialised trolling setups to target effectively-it's not rocket science though.

There were pretty good walleye in the Spring River in northern Arkansas. Seems like I remember them hangin in deep pools below rapids. I didn't have much luck with the walleye but did land a 14 pound rainbow on a rebel crawdad lure.

Most fish will have an easy time to get them and also other more difficult times
In the spring the pike come in, then the pickerel, then later the bass

its all a good excuse to be out
lol
sometimes its cheaper to buy supper

Theres not too many things better than being on a river in the woods fishing.

I've never had pickerel. I love fish especially salt water fish is that fresh water or salt water. I think my favorite is halibut.
