  1. Thought for the day.

    CM that's the lake a fellow was telling us about 4 or 5 years ago where he saw huge carp swimming around the pleasure boat docks. Big waters grow big fish. Because it's in British Columbia no baiting is permitted but It's safe to say all the pressure is on the trout.
  2. Thought for the day.

    Remember when checking a new water to wear polarised glasses and try to get a vantage point like a high bank or climb a tree if possible to look for fish.
  3. Favorite bank side music?

    One time I opened up the car doors and played the soundtrack from O Brother Where Art Thou and Rob and I were doing a jig on the bank like the Soggy Bottom Boys in the movie. Our English associate Saskcarp was horrified!

    These fellas are hanging out in a grocery store parking lot in Penticton, British Columbia.
  5. Thought for the day.

    CM, the only otters I've ever seen were at the Vancouver Aquarium, and they were just adorable. They are probably more inclined to the big rivers or the parkland up north where they'd get a little more room and not as much competition. You can check out the wiki page on them: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_river_otter Imo for animals to maintain balance they need enough room as well as other favourable conditions. There are examples that come to mind but that's my basic take on it. Wildlife management by humans in some cases is to correct imbalances caused by nature (for example after a hard winter or 2 causing low deer numbers hunting quotas may be lowered) or after several mild winters they may raise the limits so they don't cause as many road accidents. Our limits on fish that may be taken for food are determined through angler surveys and test net surveys to judge what is in a given body of water, and somehow they decide what is best to maintain populations either in whole big zones or in individual waters considering both natural birth and restocking programs. Carp have no limit and few rules here, poor things, and there is far more demand for them for food than when I started targeting them "specimen hunting". I will catch the local native fish and eat some of them but I have a really hard time fishing alongside someone who is putting carp in a cooler or asking if they can have the carp I catch.
  6. Duck

    Here we call those with the curly tailfeathers "northerns". They're larger than the mallards that aren't in big flocks migrating from way up north, as opposed to the local "puddle jumpers". When I had my Bogey and lived at the lake I was eating a lot of ducks.

    I just checked the box asking if I'd allow e-mail notifications.
  9. Getting started. 13ft 3,5lb ideas?

    Welcome to the forum, big lakes grow big carp.

    I think ours have been going off earlier and earlier each year. We used to have until end of July or at least mid-July before they started in the river and that's been changed for years. Oh, and welcome to the forum.
