  1. Welcome to the forum. Your first post has been moved to the correct board and the link to your youtube channel removed as per forum protocol.
  2. Welcome to the forum.
  3. Once again, well done all!
  4. Welcome to the forum.
  5. Well done the catchers and keep hauling! I'll bet CM is a bit relieved, I know when I take people out it's always great when they catch. Good job on setting it up, btw!
  6. Just saw this as breaking news on Canadian tv, no word of the number of casualties yet but there are a lot of ambulances and it doesn't look good. They said it was an Ariana Grande concert.
  7. Well, let us know what happens here! Spying fish stacked up is good, when will you go back?
  8. The fish law in this story is provincial, not municipal, (and Dept of Fisheries and Oceans is federal). The charge stated in the article said "reintroduce", so that wasn't a mistake. If the chain of command and the minister of the department had not been made aware of this the law may well have gone against them, since there has recently been a state of emergency over large areas in the east, the municipal government, in allowing their firefighters to assist the anglers in corralling a bunch of carp while resources are strained could have left them open to criticism. No chance for wildlife to clean up rotting fish in towns, they were getting stuck in the soccer nets. They were lucky to dodge a trip to the landfill, that's what makes this a feel good story.
  9. And the relevant portion of the same article: Finally, on Monday, the ministry confirmed it would drop the fines against the two anglers involved Ministry spokesperson Jacques Nadeau told CBC News "any people who take effective actions to help wildlife are friends" of his department. He said because the fishermen were well-equipped to help reintegrate the fish to their natural ecosystem, they would not be fined. The laws against transporting live fish aren't enforced often enough, and in the end they got it right, (helped publicise it too, maybe). There are a lot of places where the solution might have been pitchforks and wheelbarrows, but the local carpers were able to save these fish. Had it happened in the countryside (as it did here in Saskatchewan for several years), the foxes and coyotes and pelicans would have cleaned up. Actually, the flooding was so widespread in Quebec there are probably all sorts of fish either out of water or soon to be so.

  11. Welcome to the forum.
  12. There's a few of us dog lovers on here.
  13. Welcome to the forum. All the reports on here about BC since I came on put the bigger carp in the bigger lakes. I'm curious about carp in the Columbia River since a friend lives next to it, but not sure what size has been caught there. I think that's how the carp got into the interior of BC from the states in the first place so you'd think there could be some torpedoes. The guys from Fish'n Canada put a little boat in Osoyoos Lake and filmed an episode with some very good carp in the back bays, but other than that most of the over 20's I've heard of are said to be in the big lakes. There have always been some of the hardcore trout fishermen who like catching the carp they find in their little hidey-hole lakes on their fly gear, but for the most part they'd rather put their hand on the stove than tell you where that is. If I was you I'd dig up that Fishn' Canada carp episode and plan on Osooyos for a crack at a big one, time it right and get some salmon fishing in too. Time it really well and we can have a Carp.com social. Before anyone suggests a pre-baiting campaign be advised that can't happen in British Columbia as it's very illegal, and there's a 1 rod rule so finding the fish as opposed to attracting them is the order of the day.
  14. There are a lot of beautiful fish on here, well done all!
  15. Welcome to the forum, whereabouts in Tx are you?
