Thanks jeep'n'fish; wish they had something like that for carp and northern pikeminnow in Hatzic lake as well. Good event for family and kids and benifits our salmon/char/trout stocks.

Is that eggs hanging out of that pike minnow??
Jeep'n'fish

most of the fish I caught today were full of eggs. All fish were bonked and gutted then sent back, with exception to a few I left floating for the eagles to get, got a great video of a bald eagle swooping down and grabbing one of my leftovers
Fish'n BC

The few I get; I usualy cut up for crab bait or do the same as you. Do you know what they do with all the derby fish?
