thanx

FishFreak

hey i had that problem trying to mount the transducer to the back of my alluminum boat without drilling holes and i found a suction cup type transducer that you stick on the back made by HUMMINGBIRD never had any problems with it and it works great hope this helps
olie'

fishfreak, could you tell me where you got that kind of transducer? did you re-order it or where can i swap it for the one i have.
thanks
abito


he was asking 1200.00 firm. He had three scotty anchor mounts installed into the boat. Brand new never been used once.
This boat cost 1295.00 plus tax not including the anchor mounts.
He might have changed his mind but if you are interested let me know and i will ask him

roche lake rainbow
Fishn4Fun

abito, you live near Kamloops?
abito

i live in Langley
Fishn4Fun

so is that lake you go to near Kamloops?
If so, how long does it take to get there and do U just go for the day or camping?
Sounds like a pretty good lake to fish man!
Rodbreaker


This isn't my pic-it belongs to a buddy of mine who goes to a 'certain' lake a few times each year at 'certain' times-you can see the results.
Rodbreaker


Same place different time.
The only connection I have to this fish is that I gave him that old grey sweater he's wearing-he needs it as he's quite skinny and it's almost always cold there when he goes.
Rodbreaker


Same place earlier this year sometime.

o do tell us!!
Bertoli

too bad he kills 'em all
Rodbreaker


Too bad you're such a dorky little kid!
He catches a couple dozen a day and kills his legal limit-which is more fish than you'll see in a season!

sawmill, Roche is a well known lake near kamploops, not a secret at all. They started stocking tripoloid trout in there a few years ago and the one in the pic is one of them. Fish can get pretty big in the lake but can also be moody. There is a nice resort and good camping there. it takes me about 3 hours to get there from Langley not too long. i like to go for at least a couple days. Only places i would go for a day trip is somewhere near merrit area.

Regarding the comment about the pics where the guy kills his fish,there is nothing wrong with someone keeping fish if he is fishing within the regulations, I do though object to people killing thier limits and then the fish gets freezer burnt in thier freezer and gets wasted and i have seen this alot.
I personally release all trout, i'd rather take a quick pic and give the chance for another fisherman to enjoy. Plus they don't taste that great especially in shallow lakes or in the summer months.

noticed that as well abito. 2 years ago we stopped to fish a nice looking stream along the hope princeton hwy. we caught 3 rainbow trout about 15 inches long. we fried them up and they we were delicious. went to westbank in kelowna and caught a couple of larger rainbow in the lake. these were not as tasty as the stream trout. same as latimer lake in surrey...they just don't taste that good. i usually keep 2 per year and release the rest.
Bertoli

wow rodbreaker, no need for such a hostile response. I just don't think he needs to kill so many fish each time. I always release the big ones myself anyways. They dont taste as good and they look great in a picture for someone ELSE as well. If you just want fish to eat the smaller guys are tastier and there a hell of a lot more of them. But what does this "dorky little kid" know anyhow. jackass.
shizzy

you guys are funny as hell,, what would you rather have keep a few big ones and let the lil guys grow to be biggies or eat all the lil guys so they dont have a chance cmon ...
abito

"you guys are funny as hell,, what would you rather have keep a few big ones and let the lil guys grow to be biggies or eat all the lil guys so they dont have a chance cmon ... "
As i said before i have no trouble with someone catching and keeping them within the regulations.

To answer your question, if you are going to release anything the bigger fish are the ones to release..there are far more of the little guys then the trophy fish in a given lake(plus smaller trout is far tastier from what i remember and from what i hear from people). This has happened to alot of lakes out there where the big ones are killed off and nothing but smaller fish are in a lake. Do you know how fast a lake can be fished out of the big fish if everyone concentrated on killing every trophy fish hooked? The big fish got big for a reason and they will benifit any lake as brood.
You say what is better to kill a few big ones and let the little ones to grow big?? Most lake are stocked with catchables for a reason..for people to take out. And for a trout to get big is not as easy as u think
It takes alot of key factors to grow a trout to trophy size 5pound plus like water condition,size of lake,depth,alkaline levels,amount of feed, fishing pressure etc. Why do you think most trophy lakes have a C&R regulation in place or a 2 fish limit.
I would suggest thinking out your reasoning
el-nino2010

your right abito. rodbreaker does have great fishing skills by way of his posts. catching large trout on flygear is all about presentation and timing. large trout don't grow to be large because they take the first piece of food presented to them on a hook. that is why catch and release is very important for trophy lakes to be self sustaining. i carry a digital camera with me when the boys go to the vedder or the chehalis. i don't need to bring home 4- 30lb salmon each time i go out. take a quick pic and away she goes. there is a certain amount of satisfaction with the release as well.

Is it just me or does that guy look like Steve Buscemi?

You know the guy from Fargo, Sopranos (this season), Resevoir Dogs(sp?) etc?...
abito

yak, now that you mention it
Bertoli

Thanks for backing me up Abito. I was just trying to stress the conservation point which some people are a litte confused about.

Speaking of funky tasting fish, a long while back (6+ years) I was doing an over nighter on the Thompson for steelhead. I caught a nice rainbow and took it for the fry pan. It was HORRIBLE. the minute I cut the guts open it stunk like dead fish. Its gut was full of salmon bones. I guess they feed on the decaying salmon cascasses.

Even the fry pan smelled after we cooked the fish. It was a big disappointment to have to have some tube stakes as opposed to some fresh trout.

3fish

Nice pics guys!!
Barbless

im not sure some of them were bows but maybe im not really good at telling the types of fish pretty much any trout is a rainbow .. lol

bass master 99

What ive noticed about rainbow trout is that they look different in different areas.(but they still have that distinct look)My guess is that they adapt to what the main food source is in the lake or body of water.But I could be wrong. and rag cutthroats are more of a brown colour but I know what you mean they are heavily spotted like a cutty.
The best way 2 tell the difference is to check if there is a red slash under its jaw
Louis Vuitton

That last 'bow looks like a small stealhead eh
bass master 99

It does too.
Look at how blue that one is at the top also
bahram149

nope,i'm %100.00 sure its rainbow trout.actualy is not even small.this is the longest one (not the heavyest one)i ever caught,27 inches.
bahram149


another beauty ...
3fish

Where did you catch those bows bahram149?
Barbless

there is kokanee in kootnay lake and gerrard trout so it could be one of them.
Barbless

there wasnt any red slash under there jaw, now that i think about it it could be a kokanee. but im not sure because ive never seen one (unless the one i caught was).
Louis Vuitton

It aint a Kokanee tiger. Those things are silver like crazy
